“Good Food & Great Southern Hospitality”
Reviewed October 10, 2012 via mobile

We were driving through Townsend and stopped at the Black Bear Cafe for lunch based on Trip Advisor Reviews. We were totally happy we did! My husband had the Grouper Sandwich which is served on homemade toasted bread. He could not stop talking about how great it tasted. I had the hamburger which was a good thick burger that tasted great. We would like to have tried one of their many selections of homemade cakes, but we were too stuffed to have a slice. This is definitely worth a try!

“Try the trout”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

Comes with the head and fins still on, but it was delicious! We also enjoyed the meatloaf. Desserts looked good too, but we were too full to try them.

“Best food and value in Townsend and the Smokies”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

If you like good food, down home hospitality this is the place to eat when in Townsend. The owner and the staff make you feel like home folks. The food is reasonably priced and delicious.
We plan to patronize this Restaurant again whenever in the area.
