This is a very small, informal restaurant run by a Russian couple who had just become American citizens. They were very gracious, charming people. Their Russian food was very well seasoned. The couple does all of the cooking and serving. They are very professional and it was impressive.

The people here couldn't be nicer if they tried! Every one of us in the group ordered something different and every one of us loved every bite! I personally recommend the fried apples. I've never tasted anything so incredible! My dad swears by the chili and butterscotch pie. The kiddos loved the burgers, chicken fingers, hot dogs and fries. I... More

If you have the opportunity to eat at this restaurant do it. The food is fresh and delicious. The atmosphere is cozy. We went because we were curious about the Russian food. My husband had the scalloped potato pie and my son and I had the cabbage rolls. Both dishes were amazing. Ask about the special of the day because... More

....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

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 !!
