I like to patronize non-chain restaurants. This one came recommended for the chicken, so gave it a try. The chicken was good, like Nick's or Greenwood. But their sides are not up to par with others. Mashed potatoes are instant, with no salt. Sorry, but you need decent mashed potatoes to eat with chicken! No gravy on the buffet. Veggies... More

Hi Dan, We're glad that you stopped by to try our award winning chicken! We have a large variety of sides besides those that are featured on our buffet, to include local favorites such as our famous broasted potatoes, macaroni and tomatoes, fried squash, fried okra, and our homemade rolls, biscuits, and fried cornbread. For mashed potatoes fans, we don't... More

I feel like I'm going back in time. I use to eat there when I was little. The deco is updated a little bit but still, I went there to get the Chicken. The Chicken was wonderful. Very good home cooked meal. The pies were out of this world.

Best chicken in the area. Look for coupons in Sunday Paper. Best small town restaurant you'll find outside of the big city of Kingsport . Try their home made pies!

The service is great. The food is prepared after you order. It may take a couple of extra minutes, but just slow down and enjoy!

If you are looking for a home cooked type meal. This is your place. Been in the area for many years. Seems to appeal more to senior adults.

Lynn Garden Restaurant was recommended to me as THE place for fried chicken. Boy is it ever! I had a 3 piece chicken plate, mashed potatoes and okra, plus cornbread. Everything was delicious. Wife had roast beef, potatoes and corn plus rolls. Hers was equally yummy. There were about 8 homemade desserts to choose from, and we ordered chocolate cake... More

Breakfast, lunch or dinner- our family always enjoys stopping in! Aside from the fried chicken and sides I can't review on much else. Because we always go back with the same order, can't get past the fried chicken!

I like to hunt up non-chain dining. After seeing all of the reviews, I wanted to try the highly rated chicken. We were there an hour after noon lunch and perhaps it was just a case of the chicken not being replenished or freshened. Very little other than legs and wings. Dried out for the most part. Disappointing. The rest... More

We've been travelling to Northeast Tennessee on a yearly basis for 15 years, and always stop at the Lynn Garden Inn (which we love), at least once. The breakfast menu has solid, standard-issue, very good, very fresh fare. The main attraction however is the fried chicken, which is the best you'll get anywhere. This past Sunday we stopped in for... More
