“5 STAR COUNTRY COOKIN' !!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

This the real thing! The food was fantastic. We had the buffet and I had country fried chickem and smoked pork with all the trimmings. I can't remember the last time I found mustard greens, real mashed potatos and beans and cornbread on a buffet. Our server was Shaina and she took very good care of us. She's very sweet and charming. We will stop in every time we visit the ranch. Can't wait till next time!

“Good down home cooking, nothing more nothing less”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012 via mobile

Stopped here on the way to Gatlinburg with the family on a whim. Wasn't expecting much, but came out with a belly full. The buffet was your basic southern buffet of fried chicken, mashed potatoes, greens, and creamed sweet corn and beans. The fried chicken was some of the best I had eaten in a long time. My daughter had a piece of the chocolate pie and thought it was just as good or better than her favorite aunt's. The restaurant is not much to look at, but the service and the food well make up for it. Only complaint was my thirty dollar lunch for four turned into over a hundred dollars after everyone got through in the gift shop.

“Home Cooking at it's best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

Home cooking at it's best. The service is all you would expect for a "home" style location. The waitresses where there at every turn. It was almost if you thought about something they read your mind and it was there. Price was cheap in relation to the service and taste of the food you get.

“Buffet”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

Our family of 8 stopped in on Saturday on a trip passing through this area. They had a buffet with fried and baked chicken, pulled pork, fried catfish, creamed corn, green beans, mashed potatoes and gravy and other southern treats. They also had a salad bar. It was all-you-can-eat; however, it was a little pricey at $10.99, and the food was good but not excellent overall. My husband said the fried chicken was well seasoned and crunchy but tender as well,, so he liked it. The waitress said they had dessert on the buffet, and I was hoping for home-made peach cobbler or bread pudding but the only desserts they had was plain banana pudding and red jello. We did buy a small home-made fried apple pie to take home, and that was truly home-made and good. I was a little disappointed by the restaurant, as I was born and raised in the south and know what really good southern food is supposed to be all about. But - if you're hungry and want an atmosphere of Loretta Lynn, take this spot in but don't think it represents all southern food.
