....we'd eat here all of the time! The atmosphere, service, and food are all outstanding. Even though it's in the middle of nowhere, I can imagine they do very well. Really cute and comfortable surroundings. They serve Russian and American food. We can get American anytime, so went for the cabbage and onion stuffed, then fried, potato appetizers. Then cabbage...

My husband, 10 year-old daughter and I sought out this place based upon TripAdvisor reviews. We were on vacation and try to avoid chain food whenever possible. The setting is quaint and the food was delicious. My husband and I both had cabbage rolls and I could have licked the plate! I don't even like cooked cabbage. Our daughter had... More

Grill 73 was a nice find from Trip Advisor. On our way down I-40 during our trip to Pigeon Forge, we took a 10 minute detour for lunch to this wonderful restaurant. Right around the curve, on the right on 73, is the Grill. We had stuffed cabbage rolls, a ham sub, and the special 1/2 beef, 1/2 pork patties... More

My husband and I tried grill 73 for the first time tonight. The food was amazing so delicious. I found myself thinking What can I order next time I come here, that's how delicious the food was. I had the pork scallop potato pie, it was amazing and my husband had the special steaks I do believe it was ground... More

We ate at Grill 73 and found a limited menu but with tasty food. The decor is very simple. We had some of the Russian staples on the menu and enjoyed them. The restaurant is in an unlikely location for a Russian/American restaurant but if you are looking for a different experience, give them a try.

We happened across this quaint little restaurant. A Russian restaurant! We had cabbage rolls, potato pie, an appetizer of stuffed rolls and dessert of butterscotch and chocolate stuffed roll. WOW ! Everything was fantastic. Not only was the food great but service was wonderful. We definitely will be back to try more dishes !!

The "Best" refers to Val and Alex first and then their food. An atmosphere second to none due to their honest personalities, sense of humor and , of course, first quality food. I recommend anything on their menu but my all time favorite is their "Stuffed Green Peppers" . Val puts her personal touch to these and you'll find no... More

Fantastic. That sums up our experience at Grill 73. Lovely quaint atmosphere. The owners are warm and inviting. But the star of the show is of course the food. Amazing. I've traveled a lot and eaten a lot of really yummy food and let me just say this was in my top 10 meals - EVER. Everything is homemade on... More
