We went here because they had a good selection of food (even gluten-free options). However, the food was cold. The burgers were average at best, and the bbq chicken breast was just plain cold. The service was friendly and there were lots of places to sit inside. It was clean. Only gave it three stars because of poor food preparation.

I enjoyed everything I had there! It was very crowded but worth the wait and we had no trouble finding seats.

The service was good but the food (we all had cheeseburgers and fries) was fixed ahead of time which made it cold. Drinks were extremely expensive but, they had drinks in the botttle which was neat for a dollar. The best part was that the Gems sang while we were there.

We took our grandchildren to Dollywood for the day and ate at Red's Diner. Even the kids didn't like the food. The burgers had very small portions of beef and were tasteless, except for the condiments. The hot dogs were so bad the kids wouldn't even eat them. They were the worst we have ever experienced. The fries were so-so. And to top it off, the prices were exorbitant. This is definitely not like the 50's restaurants. It seems that since you are somewhat at the mercy of Dollywood for lunch, they don't care if the food is good or not. We will not eat here again. Dollywood doesn't want you to bring your own food into the park so they can sell you their expensive low quality food. If we go back, we will certainly take our own food, even if we have to tailgate when we get hungry since we have the option of going to our vehicle at any time and then go back inside. Other dining experiences on the Dollywood property have been undesirable as well. My advice...... enjoy the shows and other offerings of Dollywood, but take a sandwich and beverage with you.

Ate here today for lunch at 2pm. Food was cold and over priced. Sat at a booth and an employee came just as we got our food and told us she was trying to close the section off. She then said we could quickly finish our meal ..... Unbelievable! Love the music playing inside though and our order taker was very friendly. Also they had the temperature so cold we were shivering!
