Description: You can find the Rendezvous Restaurant and Lounge attached to the Maggie Valley Inn and Conference Center located on "The Coolest Corner in the Valley". The Rendezvous Restaurant and the Inn are American owned and operated. Drop by and enjoy some of the best food in Western North Carolina. No place in the Smokies will you find the best mix of food like our Southern Fried Chicken, Ribs, tender steaks, hand breaded seafood and the best hand breaded Chicken Tenders in the south. While you look over our great menu, let us tell you the Rendezvous atmosphere is a blend of fine dining and good old home town casual. If that is not enough, let us wow you with our Thursday night Country Buffet, or Sunday's Family Style dinning, or get it hot and fresh Saturday & Sunday mornings with our Breakfast Buffet. We can serve one to two hundred, so no group or party is too small or big for us. April through October (weather permitting) the Rendezvous is home to the Pool Side Tiki Bar. Nowhere are you going to find the best in outdoor dining than here on the coolest corner. We are proud to announce the addition of the "Maggie Valley Inn Pizzeria". We now serve the best hand tossed, cooked in a traditional Brick oven, fresh Pizza and Calzones. So take some time and look at what the Rendezvous has to offer. We look forward to serving you, your family, and friends, at the "vous" located at the coolest corner in Maggie.

Inside fine dining? Outside Tiki bar and Pool? You have come to the right place! The locals call it their local "Cheers". The food is always tasty and consistent (I love the Tiki shrimp and the Tortizza and the fried chicken). Prices are reasonable the owners will welcome you with warm Southern hospitality. Give it a try. You won't be sorry!

“Great ribs and seafood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2012 via mobile

What a great restaurant. My family ate on Thursday night at their buffet. Great fried chicken! We went back for the ribs and steak the next night. Both nights were awesome. The prices were very reasonable and great service. We will be back
