When in Bryson City this is our go to breakfast spot. We sometimes eat here every morning even though we planned on eating in. The gravy and the biscuits is just that irresistible. See you in September!

We ate breakfast here 3 days and we loved it. It is just a good down home breakfast. Try the cinnamon roll. Our teenage grandson loves them. It certainly put a smile on his face.

We stopped in for lunch. I got the BLT basket and it was great. My husband got the Chipotle Buger Basket. He loved it, but beware it is hot... the top of his head was sweating :)

This was the only place me and my boyfriend went to have breakfast on our vacation. They serve breakfast too 2pm. Pricing is inexpensive and the amount of food you get for your buck is worth it.

Came here after our first night of camping for breakfast and had a great experience. The staff was super friendly and the food was delicious. The biscuits were some of the best I've ever had. The prices were incredibly budget friendly and we can't wait to go back soon.

We found the Iron Skillet late in our week and enjoyed a great breakfast both mornings. Would recommend the country ham.
