Highly recommend! The ultimate sandwich w/ beef brisket was very good - large portion sizes. We also really enjoyed trying the homemade bbq sauces. Service was great, the waitress and manager were both very friendly and attentive.

We had a great lunch. The fried pickles were the best. The fried deviled eggs were incredible, need to learn how to make then for our next picnic. The BBQ was excellent as always and the service was very friendly.

Pretty average restaurant in the middle of the touristy area. Prices are very reasonable and the staff is friendly. The green beans definitely appear to be from a can which was disappointing. The house made bbq sauce is pretty delicious.

We will return to this joint every time we are in Gatlinburg! Delicious BBQ with generous portions and a great selection of sauces. Even the kids meal went above expectations. All of the staff was friendly and on top of everything throughout the meal.

We visited Pigeon Forge and Over Gatlinburg early April. We stopped at Bennetts for late lunch. The waiting time was shorter than they predicted. The restaurant is out of date and kind of dirty. The external area was dirty, and smells rotten at times. The...BBQ meat was tasty but a little cold. We were expecting this kind of rustic, country environment but a little big more cleanness. I believe that business is booming for them but they need to invest in the overall appearance and hygiene of the restaurant.More

Every time we visit Gatlinburg, we go to Bennett’s. The bar-b-que is the best and don’t forget to try the fried corn on the cob! The ice tea is very fresh. Our server was super nice and attentive. The Bennett’s in Gatlinburg has a small...parking lot. The Bennett’s in Pigeon Forge is just as good and their parking lot is much larger.More
