My wife and I had a overnight stay in Cherokee and we ate here for diner one night. This is a very inexpensive Buffet restaurant that has very good Southern food. Fried chicken, Dumplings, cream corn great mashed potatoes a very good salad bar and pie for desert. The food was good and the service was very good.

Of course the selection is limited and of the comfort food nature at this small buffet eatery just up the road from Harrah's Casino. The $8 lunch (plus drink) is certainly right-priced if only for the delightful fried chicken. The carved roast beef (top round?) and au jus was fine, but the chicken/dumplings was sadly just lumps of dough swimming... More

This was a surprise find that was delicious. I am not a fan of buffet normally, but this was good. The staff was friendly. I would go back when in the area.

Seven words. All you can eat turkey and dressing....I ate to the point that I thought I would be sick. Around 15 bucks a person is a bit expensive for a dinner buffet but the food was absolutely amazing. The staff were very nice and made sure our drinks were filled the whole time and kept checking that everything was... More

Granny's Kitchen has wonderful food. While staying at Harrah's Casino and Hotel, we thought we would try eating at Granny's Kitchen. Especially when the Casino' food and Restaurants were either to expensive or not good food. Granny's has great food and so much to pick from. The roast beef was so tender. It was like home cooking food. The price... More

Nothing fancy about grannies. Good food, reasonable prices. Buffet was definitely adequate, but far short of the buffet in Harrah's. Good value for the money. Great fried chicken!

Enjoyed dinner here tonight and sat beside a local couple who everyone seemed to know. We re made feel like we belonged intend of tourist. The "young at heart" couple recommended us going to the park to possibly see elk after our dinner. To our surprise we did!!!! This family feeling restaurant gave us a great home cooked meal (buffet)!... More

We had the breakfast buffet but arrived toward the end of that service. Were rushed to get our food and they had already started taking the breakfast bar down so we did not get to have fruit. The quality was OK but we were not able to take advantage of the cook to order feature because we arrived at 10:30... More

A little disappointing, both the service and the food. I thought it funny that they have a sign posted on the buffet announcing that management reserves the right to charge you extra if you take food from the buffet and don't eat it...laughable in every respect, especially given the taste of some of the food and the price they are...
