A lovely break from the BBQ, Wood-Fired Pizza, and Fried Foods so common in this area. We make a point of going each time we're up here, but my husband forgot to pack "nice" pants this trip, alas. It's reservation-only, and the menu is set each night; they usually post it for a week out. The food is excellent, but... More

We stayed at the Buckhorn and breakfast was included in our stay. Every morning there was a new treat in store. Every breakfast included biscuits and some kind of pastry, then you could choose from a hearty egg dish, or a wonderful pancake or waffle treat, fresh fruit, or eggs your way. The chef came up with a new treat... More

We had dinner both evenings at the Inn. Food was excellent and the warm hospitality of John and Lee Mellor, Innkeepers made it an outstanding experience.

Awesome place to relax. Dining here is a treat. Set menu and limited reservations but excellent food and service. The Inn has both rooms and cottages and a tower room

Some of the best meals I have ever eaten. Chef takes his time to make sure everything from the different daily breads to dessert are compatable.

We have visited Buckhorn Inn every fall for 10 years and always look forward to our experience there. We feel like we are being welcomed by family. The entire staff is friendly and helpful. The views are magnificent. The food is outstanding. The rooms are beautiful and comfortable. The inn is near Gatlinburg and the national park where all kinds... More

Gourmet breakfasts are included for folks staying at the Inn, but the dining room is also open for dinner each evening to non-residents as well. Fixed menu each night served at 7pm. Food and service impeccable. Décor and ambiance outstanding as well. If you are looking for a great dining experience away from the mayhem of downtown Gatlinburg, look no... More

If you are not staying here, you can still eat dinner here. Make a reservation, and don't miss this experience while you are in the Smokies. You will not regret it!

We stayed at the GreenBriar...which sadly the owner is coming to live in next year so we won't be able to go back...I about cried. It was an amazing cabin. I'll include pictures of both the cabin and the restaurant/inn. Well worth the time to find and stay at. Word can't say enough.
