We stopped by the Smokehouse Restaurant for lunch. The fried chicken was wonderful! The pulled pork sanwich was fantastic with the Smokehouse's peach barbecue sauce! The fried green tomatoes were as good as my grandma's. A little homemade fudge for dessert made our lunch the...More

If going from Nashville to Chattanooga stop in for some BBQ at the Smokehouse. The brisket and ribs are worth the stop. Try their thick sliced bacon and take some home.

The food at the Smokehouse is average, the entertainment they bring in is better than average. This is because it’s fairly close to Nashville. The country store provides many items from yesterday that are hard to find anymore...for example country ham. A fun place when...More
