Went for early dinner with my husband. First off they seated us at the worst table near the busy buffet tables. There were plenty of other tables available but they were unwilling to move us when we requested a different table. The food was marginal at best. Our waitress proofed my senior husband and said she had to because it... More

We visited for supper and again the next day for breakfast. For supper we had to wait for tables to be cleaned before we were seated. It appeared they were using 1 section of the restaurant only, The waitresses were good, the food decent, prices reasonable. I would recommend.

The food here is good, at first you will be like wow they are a little pricey but when you get your food you will be amazed at the quantity. The hamburgers are fantastic and the kids entrees are even good! The breakfast bar was my favorite!

As part of my quest to sample all the eateries on the quiet side of the smokies, I had breakfast here before going to Cades Cove. I got seated quickly in somewhat remote area. Service was slow and the food didn't show mw anything special.

Was conveniently located near our hotel. Ate breakfast and dinner here while we stayed at Talley Ho Inn. They make their own white bread, which made the toast taste great! I had a crispy chicken salad for dinner. The servings were generous and prices were good. The waitress was kind and made us feel at home.
