On Glades Road and opens at 11 AM. Many good items on their menu. I had the chicken salad sandwich which comes on Texas toast with fries. My partner had fish tacos which were on a flour tortilla with a piece of deep-fried fish with...spicy chipotle mayonnaise and coleslaw and fries to the side.Together with one drink for less than $25. It was very good with large portions.More

We ordered a cheeseburger and fried chicken sandwich and they were both delicious. Great prices for great food. Our online order was ready on time as well.

So much fun to write a great review after eating at a restaurant that came through on everything. Great and friendly service, strict protocols for COVID, great tasty food that is fresh with a unique offering. Love the tater idea and ordered a taco tater...with tater tots as my salad base with fresh ingredients added. Delicious. The atmosphere is nice with outdoor seating. We were surprised is wasn't crowded when we went, but this restaurant deserves a lot of business. They are doing everything right and it was so enjoyable to eat here. A good addition to the Arts and Craft community!More

Too many great choices! Wish we had this place near our home! The buffalo chicken bowl was awesome and the polish ruben was very good too!! Prices are reasonable for gatlinburg area.

Great lunch spot. Get the fried chicken sandwich, and the loaded potato soup if they have it. Their online menu does have some stuff Listed that they did not have on their menu in the restaurant which was a bummer.

My wife and I ordered Split Rail Eats as our first meal on a weekend trip to Gatlinburg. We had the Buffalo Chicken Sandwich and Chicken Quesadilla, which were amazing and we would definitely recommend.

I stopped in yesterday for lunch and had the best sandwich. Super friendly service and they are set up to observe distancing and create a safe environment. I'd come back here for lunch again!

What a hidden treasure! Delicious, fresh food! Great service, too. I had the chicken salad sandwich, it was different than any other I have ever had. Others had the Polish Reuben, the fish tacos and hamburger. We all left with very happy tummys!
