Description: Great Food, Cold Drinks, Live Music, a Relaxing Garden & a Waterfall! This is a great find in the Smoky Mountains. Only 4.5 Miles from Pigeon Forge on Wears Valley Rd but your a world away. Order inside our restaurant and store and enjoy on the covered/heated deck overlooking our waterfall or in our garden. The kids we'll LOVE our creekside Gem Mine. You can even get married, hold a family reunion or book a private dinner at our Waterfall! Hours change seasonally and we are closed for the months of January and February.

“Special little place to go”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2013

So glad we stopped in to this little gem. Food was very good and priced very reasonably. Sitting outside listening to the waterfall was wonderful. The owners seem to really enjoy what they are doing. If you want a good and out of the norm place to go, this is the place!

“Quirky and Cool”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2013

It doesn't look like much from the road, but the deck that overlooks the stream is gorgeous. The food was really good, you order inside and eat out on the deck. Old school lunchboxes hold the napkins and such on each table. There are heater lamps for when its cool outside, the sound of the rushing water is so peaceful. There is a long ramp that leads to an open area where you can go sit as well.

“Must go!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

We had passed by this a few times and decided to stop in for a late lunch. The views were worth it. It was kinda quirky but neat. You order inside and help yourself to drinks from the barrel and get your own condiments from a lunch pail. My burger and fries were delicious. You can walk down by the creek while you wait and look at pictures, then listen and look at the waterfall during your meal. Will go back for sure!!!!

“Almost don't want to tell everyone.......”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

I have mixed emotions about telling everyone about this great diamond in the rough! Most people pass it by quickly without realizing what they are missing behind the wooden fence at this little bar and grill. One of the best views you'll ever experience in the Smokys! A small bar with a limited menu...typical bar fare...sits on a gorgeous waterfall and river.. The day we were there we ordered the burgers and fries which were great. There were books and coloring books for the kids...and a singing duo that did a nice job. Owners were friendly, and encourage you to walk around and enjoy their property. Prices are moderate, and even if you don't eat, you should definitely stop and enjoy a can of beer at this little gem.

“Beautiful View, Quirky Place, Good Food, Good Price!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

What more can I say . . . the falls are beautiful, the place is very interesting, service was great, food was good. The loaded french fries are great! Only outdoor/covered seating, so take a jacket or sweatshirt if weather is cool. Price is right!
