We really enjoyed this restaurant-fried chicken was excellent and the staff was friendly. We didn't have a long wait to get in, but wouldn't surprise me during busy times, as it is a popular place!

We needed a place to have supper before returning to our cabin. This place looked busy so we decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed. Would recommend!

We ate here after tubing on the Little River about 2:00 in the afternoon. We were tired and hungry but since we were arrived after the lunch rush, we didn't have to wait. There is a buffet that didn't have a lot from which to choose at that off hour, but the salad bar looked fresh and full. Most of... More

This is the last restaurant before entering the Great Smokies from Townsend and has a buffet breakfast for $8.99 that's average, but worth it. Be aware that most everything in Townsend closes down early and this restaurant might be closed early in the evening. Forget it after 9 pm.

This place is straight out of the past, the decorations, furniture, people and food. I don't think it has been updated in the last 25-30 years. The hostess seated us near the buffet. Behind us there were perhaps 20 people in the restaurant, 3 servers. We waited 15 minutes for a server to come to our table. The tables near... More

We have been visiting the Smokies every year now for over ten years from Pennsylvania and have been passing the restaurant every year. We finally stopped this year for a great surprise. Our waiter Maveric was very attentive and understanding. The grouper was huge and very tasty and a few members of our party loved the dinner buffet. Building inside... More

Had breakfast here while in town for business. Nice buffet for only $8! Can't beat the price and the food selection was decent. Right next to Talley Ho Inn so if staying there is very convenient. Check the hours though because we tried to go for dinner and they weren't open. Service was good as well.

We accidently found this place, but delighted we did. They had a good menu but decided to have their buffet. It was reasonably priced and delicious. Staff was excellent, even verified and offered sugar free dessert. Highly recommend.

Thank Karen E
