Description: Brumley's Restaurant is located inside the General Morgan Inn, but I would like to provide a review of the restaurant - apart from the hotel. Some visitors to Greeneville might miss Brumley's if they aren't guests at the General Morgan Inn.

While house hunting I had an occasion to eat at this restaurant more than half a dozen times, sampling a lot of things from the menu over two seasons. After the second visit I was treated like family. The restaurant, itself is in the General Morgan Hotel in downtown Greeneville, which has been lovingly restored. They take advantage of the fact that they are in an area that is largely agricultural and many local farms are transitioning to organic practices. The salad combinations were delightful and surprising and the size was far larger than you would expect for a "side" salad. The menu changes to take advantage of seasonally available products twice a year. If you have a special request, they are more than happy to try to oblige you. The wine list, while a little thin, does offer a "tasting" option so that you get smaller pours of three different wines, which I really liked as it allowed me to have a different wine with my salad and to try new selections with my entree. You won't be disappointed.

What a wonderful place. Faithfully restored dining room in the downtown hotel has the grace and elegance of by gone days. This combined with an excellent staff and a wonderful menu makes for a totally relaxed and enjoyable meal. The daily lunch features a small buffet in addition to the menu items. The buffet always has a great asssortment of foods with one item, the chicken salad being a daily item. It is on the buffet or you can order it off the menu where it comes with fresh fruit and wonderful banana bread. Quiet elegance with a wonderful staff makes for a very enjoyable meal. I have lunch there at least once a week.

Driving in the area to visit President Johnson's home, I decided to lunch at Brumley's in the General Morgan Inn.

The Inn is beautiful and it would be interesting to stay overnight some time. The restaurant was delightful with a more formal setting than a usual luncheon - which suited me just fine. I was able to look out unto Main Street and see the lovely scenery while I dined alone.

First off, the coffee was wonderful! I had a hankering for a good cup and wasn't disappointed. After being on the road, a nice sit down lunch was what I wanted and the rib eye steak was a great choice. I choose to have potato pancakes instead of potatoes. The breads that accompanied the lunch were excellent too.

Service was typical for the setting and friendly servers made it a nice week-end experience.

They serve a brunch on the week-end and not their regular menu, so be aware of that fact. There is a good choice for a meal so in no way is this a negative option. It was a quiet and peaceful lunch more suited for couples/adults than for children.

This is a beautiful restaurant inside the General Morgan Inn. Food was good but a bit pricy for what you get. Our waitress was excellent; couldn't have asked for a better services. Extensive bar and wine list.
