Another fantastic stay at The Fryemont Inn. With a chill in the air, the magnificent fireplace felt great! The Prime Rib and Trout were better than ever, as were the sides and the desserts. My spirit is reknewed!

Excellent place to dine in Bryson City! Great food and service. Quiet and the staff was wonderful! The trout was really good and everything was served family style. I would go back here again. If you stay at the inn the meals are complimentary!

We were here with a large group of folks, and the restaurant did a fantastic job of accommodating everyone seamlessly. We were seated in 15 minute time increments to allow the wait staff to not have to serve everyone at the exact same time, and it worked really well. The meals (breakfast and dinner) are included in the price of... More

We stayed for four nights at the Fryemont Inn, which includes full breakfast and dinner in room rate. The menu provides plenty of options. They use fresh ingredients, are creative (e.g. 3 different bowls of well-seasoned and delicately-cooked vegetables with each dinner), and the wait staff is friendly & attentive.

The food was well prepared. The menu included selections in beef, trout, chicken, pork and vegetarian. The sides (3 each night) are different each night and everyone gets the same three. I found some really great dishes I've never tried (shrimp and grits, baked tomatoes with peppers and parmesan cheese, BLT soup). Each meal includes soup, salad, entrée and dessert.... More

Definitely a "throwback" evening. The room is old, but well maintained. The food was uniformly good --- not haute cuisine but well prepared. We had a lovely time and thought it was a good value given that it was included in our stay at the Inn.

We were staying at the Fryemont Inn for one night. Breakfast and dinner are included in the rate. The dining room is large and features wood beams and a large stone fireplace. We chose the trout special which came with soup, salad and dessert. The next morning at breakfast, I chose a three egg omelet which was well prepared. Service... More

A beautiful bar and an old fashioned dining room in a very old and historic hotel. Meals come with lodging, but walk-ins are welcome. Take a drink and sit on the huge porch that overlooks the Smoky Mountain National Park. A very wonderful experiemce. The food is exceptionally good and value priced.

The meals here, included with the price of the room, are enormous. Soup, salad, entree with THREE family-style sides, and dessert are all included if you are a guest at the inn. But even if you aren't, I'd recommend this restaurant. The dining room is rustic and beautiful, with exposed beams and creaking floors and a cool bar in back.... More

First let me say that the staff was very friendly and attentive. But we were disappointed with the meal. We had the trout which was pretty good, but the sides (served family style) must all be prepared in large batches and kept in warmers. .Portions are huge, and dessert is included, if that is important to you.
