“Best Food Value In Dollywood”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

Selection is limited compared to other buffets in the park, but I think that allows better quality food at a lower price. I work in food service and tend to avoid buffets as the food is not always served at the right temperature, or is held longer than it should. The cleanliness and freshness of the food prepared at Miss Lillian's was outstanding. Lillian's served a green salad that looked very fresh-no wilt or discoloration, and a pasta salad on the cold side of the buffet. On the hot side instant mashed potatoes, green beans, white gravy, biscuits, three kinds of chicken, and chicken fried steak. Quite a variety of desserts offered, too. Everything was "from the oven" hot. Large portions of instant mashed potatoes can be tricky to make, if your lazy about it they can have lumps or dry spots. These were PERFECT! Sounds silly, but I really appreciated the obvious effort the employees put into our meal.

Miss Lillian graciously entertained us during our meal, even getting my 14 yr old daughter up and dancing with her. The only drawback I saw to eating at the Chicken House that day was the temperature. It was a little chilly out and our enclosed part of the restaurant was not heated.

“Great food at a reasonable price”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

Miss Lillian's is an all-you-can-eat buffet with a country diner atmosphere. "Miss Lillian" provides entertainment by singing and interacting with the children, making folks smile and laugh. Adult price for us was $13.99 each, and that included a drink, which is likely the most reasonable deal inside Dollywood. There were several types of chicken, country style steak, veggies, pasta salads, salad bar and desserts to choose from. Plenty of choices for the entire family, and though we did not eat until about 3 pm, everything seemed hot and fresh. The employees seemed very friendly, and the atmosphere inside was cozy (there is also outside covered seating, but it was raining & cool when we were there). As far as I know, the only way to get there is through Dollywood, but it is just as good as any "outside" restaurant.
