Description: The Riverstone Family Restaurant was originally opened and owned by Terry & Belinda Haley in 2004 and gave it its name and the reputation of having the very best food anywhere around. We share the same Rep at the Riverstone Lodge right next door.We truly do have the best of quality of food anywhere. We are from Mississippi and really, really know how to cook real southern food with many years exp. We are open year round 7 days a week serving breakfst, lunch & dinner.We have been licensed as a CERTIFIED ANGUS RESTAURANT serving only certified angus beef for all fresh beef items on menu. If your not aware, certified angus is now said to be better than "PRIME".Nothing but the best. Even our hamburgers are fresh Certified Angus. Hope to see you soon! Don't forget the fresh homemade Fried Green Tomatoes.

We would love to know how the food tasted here, but we waited so long to be seated that we finally left without eating. There were 2 in our party and we arrived at 1:30 p.m. after touring Cade's Cove that morning. 4 employees walked by the hostess stand and told us someone would be with us in a minute. After 15 minutes and the 4th person brushing us off, we figured our business wasn't important and that the service after being seated wouldn't be any better, so we left.

We've been here a number of times (apparently they have new owners now) and the food is always great and fills you up. They have a small patio too. Sometimes they run out of desserts so ask early.

We were meet with an amazingly friendly staff that offered any suggestions and helped with extreme food allergies. The pulled pork with turnip greens and the hamburger and french fries with sweet tea is what filled our plates. We would 100% recommended Riverstone Family Restaurant to anyone in the Townsend, TN area.

We took a late trip to Cade's Cove and did not get out of the park until about 6:30. Now you must remember Townsend is not called the quiet side of the Smokies because of its vast number of restaurants and stores. In December many of the businesses in town are closed. My wife and I were starving so we stopped to get a bite to eat. We were greeted immediately upon entering and received a surprise, there was a blue grass group playing. We were one of only three people in the restaurant so we had a great seat to see and listen to this very good little group. Our orders were taken immediately and before you could blink your eye I had my much needed sweet tea. We ordered the fried catfish with fries and okra and the pot roast with greens. Our meals were good, not great but it was a much needed dose of comfort food with nice entertainment. I would not hesitate to eat here again. The restaurant is small, comfortable and clean. I would call this restaurant a little oasis in the middle of a town that is pretty much closed for the season. The burgers looked good too.
