“This place is just "so-so".”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

I probably won't be going back. It was a quick decision when we discovered the sushi place right down the road was closed. Their BBQ sauce is VERY vinegar based, and I'm just not a fan. The pulled pork sandwich was edible, but nothing special. I don't understand all of the awards claimed. The service was lackluster. The sides were obviously out of a can, however, I have to say the "corn puddin'" was pretty good. Just stop at TGI Fridays about a half block down and I'm sure you'll be happier.

Until the next time!

“Nice place to eat”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

The food and service were very good. Our server was a bit overwhelmed it seemed but after asking a couple times finally got what we needed.
One thing to remember is if you park in their lot is keep your receipt to avoid having to pay the $7 for parking.

“Best food of our trip!”
Reviewed March 9, 2013 via mobile

We were referred to this restaurant and are so glad we went. Hands down the best place we ate our whole trip. Nice range of choices, from ribs to steak to burgers to chicken. Our party had one of each and there were no complaints. The ribs were deemed phenomenal, the burger and steak were both perfectly prepared and the chicken was marinated in their BBQ sauce! They serve microbrews from the adjacent brewery and they were excellent. Our server, Brittany was sweet, efficient and full of helpful vacation tips. The rest of the staff was so friendly. We really enjoyed our dinner here and will definitely return on our next Gatlinburg vacation.
