A gem in Mountain City, TN....we always look forward to dining in rustic elegance at Tributary. Excellent chef's gourmet selections from chicken, steak or seafood. Not your ordinary fare. Tonight I had the Artichoke encrusted flounder with Panko crumbs, a hint of parmesan and fresh tomato....it was light and melted in my mouth. My husband loved the scallops, home baked fries. Finished the evening with a scrumptious chocolate mousse, raspberry cream cake. We are repeat customers and no matter what we order it has always been excellent!

I attended a corporate meeting that The Tributary provided box lunches for the attendees. The boxes were beautiful with special touches like printed menus attached with twine and bearing the company logo. They were delivered promptly, and were fully ready to be served. The food was delicious as always!! The homemade chips were an unusual treat and helped these box lunches standout from many catered meetings I have attended throughout the region. Consider having box lunches for your next meeting in Mountain City--you won't be disappointed!

we ve been back several times whenever we find ourselves in the area, and now we
believe they've outdone themselves and added a great salad bar... Everything we love,
and a lot of items you never see on a salad bar (Greek yogurt, fresh fruit, edamame, to name
a few) a perfect fit for what we believe to be a great menu couple with great desserts.
A MUST VISIT, IF YOU'RE IN MOUNTAIN CITY! A restaurant of this caliber is hard to find
anywhere...

Passing through town, and was referred by a local...
They obviously knew what they were talking about... Loved the menu, with the broad spectrum
of interesting dishes and combinations. With the new addition of a salad bar, this place hits
a home run. A rare find! Worth a trip to Mountain City!

Every time we've been in town, we've had to go here to eat. I can't say enough about the food. And the new salad bar is excellent.
