We ate here first on a Saturday with ribs and pulled pork on the buffet. Both of these were excellent as is the BBQ sauces offered. You can tell the locals know this because the places was busy beginning at 4:00 pm when they opened. The salad bar is fresh with excellent choices. The hot food has a good selection but not so many choices, which means what is there is good. Beans, greens, potatoes with rosemary and garlic (excellent) and 3-4 entree choices. Dessert had 4-5 choices plus soft serve ice cream. We then came back to have fried chicken later in the week - the chicken was okay but not the southern fried chicken that is awesome. The green beans with field peas and ham was excellent. The view and service is excellent. State Parks in Tennessee do not charge an entrance fee, so profit from this restaurant supports the parks.
