“Buffet Lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2012

We ate here for a Sunday Lunch...., It was buffet-style, and very delicious. To get to the Dining room, we had to walk down a flight of stairs, which was fine for us, so not sure what arrangements they have for handicapped customers, but since it is located within a State Park, there may be some way to accomodate the handicapped, that I am not aware of.
Overall, it was a nice experience, and you don't go away hungry... The staff was very friendly and helpful.

“A good way to start our day”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2010

Food at Tierney's Cavern is good, if a bit greasy. Our food came quickly and the portions were generous. Our waitress was very gracious even though we came in at the very end of their breakfast hours. The windows looking out into the woods made for a very relaxing atmosphere.

“Affordable prices, friendy faces”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2008

This restaurant in located within Carter Caves State Resort Park. The restaurant on site served tasty food, with reasonable prices, hearty portions, and exceptional service. The waitresses posessed the local charm you would expect with traditional southern hospitality. We enjoyed breakfast, lunch, and dinner here and walked away satisified and full. The dining room has large windows with a view of the woods. A couple of bird feeders outside the window provided entertainment while we awaiting our meals.
