I am a vegan so really liked the fact that I could heap fresh veggies on my plate off the buffet. They also brought me a special lemon and vinegar dressing.

Very good just a bit expensive for those who can't eat alot . could use a few more items on bar and a better set up in dinning room. People run into each other trying to get good or trying to pay

We had lunch at Granny's kitchen. Boy were we surprised! We knew it was going to be special when we seen the crowd at the door waiting to be seated. The salad bar was fresh and very tasty. The green bean, corn, fried okra, red skin potatoes, fried chicken just like grandma made, and prime rib was terrific. Also the... More

Took my 8 & 6 year old daughters here. After a few days of Waffle House or over-priced pancake houses, it was nice to have a clean buffet where they could just eat whatever they wanted. Eggs, Fruit (Strawberry, Melons, Peaches, etc), French Toast sticks, bacon, sausage, etc). It wasn't gourmet, but it was enough.. $9 for adults and $6... More

This is only a buffet but oh my was it delicious. The menu was thanksgiving food as well as meatloaf and roast beef. The kids ate everything. The service was the best we've had in a very long time as well. They say they have a different menu daily and they serve breakfast too. If we ever come back this... More

We were riding through the Great Smokey Mountains with family and asked a park ranger where she goes for dinner in Cherokee. She recommended Granny's and we were very satisfied with our buffet meal. Our family from Puerto Rico got to sample some down home Appalachian cooking, and they loved it! We would go here again.

We had breakfast here on Saturday morning. Althoe crowed there was hardly a wait at the door or the food line! Everything was fresh and good. We will return for breakfast again when in Cherokee in October.

When we spoke with our traveling companion, she indicated a desire to visit Cherokee. I had no issues there, except where to eat. Some places that I used to eat are no longer there. And, we didn't want fast food. In looking at the listings, I found Granny's Kitchen. As the three of us like buffet-style, I elected to go... More

We arrived at 8:30 pm and I was afraid we might be too late to eat. No problem! Our darling waitress took us right to a table. Very pleasant people. The food was hot and fresh. The fried chicken was superb! They had chicken, ham, roast beef and macaroni with tomatoes, along with fried okra and other delights on their... More

GREAT FOOD! Staff was extremely friendly and professional. At first I was taken back by the line of people looking for a table, but I understood with just one bite! Are you looking for a local food joint, well here it is. Been that way for a long time and I hope for a longer time in the future. EAT... More
