When this was a big boy they had standards but everything has changed. The servers try so hard to make your visit pleasant but once you taste the food it all changes. The buffet is a joke with only a handful of options and none of them very good. You are better off at McDonalds.

They had a buffet, my husband checked it out and said it didn't' look good so we ordered off the menu. I ordered the Philly cheesesteak. It looked like mangled steak on a super dry bun. I was glad when the meal was over

We were so very pleasantly surprised at the quality, taste, price and service at this little buffet! They offer a full menu, but the food on the buffet looked and smelled so good, we didn't even browse the menu. We weren't disappointed, in fact, we were only sorry that we hadn't found this place sooner. I highly recommend this restaurant to everyone in the Cherokee area. You will not be sorry! Two of us stuffed ourselves on delicious food for less then $24.

We stayed in Gatlinburg, but got up early one morning and drove over the Smoky Mountain Park to have breakfast somewhere on the "other" side. We ended up at the Newfound Lodge Restaurant 10 minutes before the buffet switch from breakfast to lunch. Food was very tasty and the service was great. Fresh fruit was nice and sweet. We were there on a Friday, and they brought out several fish entrees for the lunch buffet that looked really good. If we are through this part of NC in the future we will be sure to stop in again.

What a find while my husband and I were celebrating our anniversary on a trip to Cherokee. The staff and service was so friendly and helpful and the food was fabulous!!!. The breakfast buffet offered any item you could possible want and the seafood buffet was out of this world..The trout was some of the best I have ever tasted. Kudos to the chef...He even came out and talked with us. Will definitely go back and recommend highly.
