Thanksgiving Day

We were in Cherokee for my dad's birthday and Thanksgiving. On Thanksgiving Day, we ate at Granny's. The food was delicious. Also, the staff was nice and courteous. I would recommend people to eat here.

We always eat at Granny's any time we are in Cherokee or passing through to Gatlinburg which was the case last weekend. My husband and I were taking 2 of our grandchildren to the Christmas parades in the area and stopped to eat before crossing the mountain. An added plus this trip was finding Granny's on restaurant.com!! The variety was... More

You know it's good when the locals send you there. We had 5 adults & 5 early teen kids. We all were happy with the selections and no one left hungry. Good local eatery.

Granny's is a must when you visit Cherokee. It's a much needed break before or after the casino. The restaurant does not have menu service - it is buffet only. The buffet is changed frequently and it's typically all home style foods. It's definitely worth the $12.25 when compared to the food prices at the casino.

Last time we were in the area, we tried to stop for the dinner, but there was such a wait, we went else where. This time in town we came for breakfast. We were very disappointed as the food was not that good. We will not be back.

This is the second time we have been in the area fro Thanksgiving and decided to spend it at Granny's. Though the line was about 45 minutes long we really didn't mind. We were there with friends and spent the time socializing. The buffet was fresh and plentiful and what more could you ask for a thanksgiving day feast. The... More
