We wanted to be able to provide feedback; however, when we arrived, we discovered the Back Porch restaurant was closed...so, we went to Trails End instead and, even though the wait was very long, the food was excellent.

Quaint little place in Townsend. My wife and I love to eat there when we get the chance. I remember the catfish dinner to be excellent, and huge portions, We have ate breakfast there several times, and it was fresh and delicious.
