As we returned again we noticed many local folks eat at this restaurant , that's a good sign! We had a super breakfast and a tasty dinner. Plan to return in the autumn.

“First Night in Townsend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

This place was suggested to us when we signed in at our cabin. There was a 3 piece bluegrass band playing the whole time we ate. Very relaxing and enjoyable to listen to. The food was FABULOUS!!! My husband had the Mesquite Chicken and I had the Slow Cooked Pork. It was so tender and delicious and had a great barbeque flavor. The staff was friendly and very attentive. Will definitely go back here again!!!

“Great find on our way to Cade's Cove”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

We have been visiting this area for the past 5 years. Every year our restaurants finds get better. We have driven past this resturant atleast 20 times and was always had lots of cars in the lot. This time we stopped. The moment we walked in. The atmosphere was what we like. Family and friends. In the cover was a three piece band that became a 5 piece band. The people soo kind so friendly. Order the fried green tomatoes. Omg. Omg. Best ever.
Son had basic burger but loved it. Wife had catfish and I had pot roast. After a day hiking it was perfect. My family felt apart of this place. The head lady was so nice sweet. Apologized for the 10 min wait 10 times. It ok waiting for this. Anytime.
