This fine elegant dining in the heart of The Smokies is truly a find! The Chef changes the menu daily, so if you stay a week ( which I recommend at this First Class Lodge) you never get tired of the same items.
One night , the German Chef prepared a small bite size appetizer. It was out of this world.
For the "First Bites" I had Bloody Mary Oysters. This was black pepper fried Oysters, bloody mary jus, citrus creme fraiche and in a bed of baby spinach.
The Buckberry salad had it all. Lettuce, plumpted cherries, tomatoes, cucumbers, bleu Cheese, smoked sourdough croutons, and honey thyme vinaigrette. This is a meal into itself!!!!!
For my entree, I was eithe going to go for the SALMON, the Amberjack or the Prime Beef Tenderloin. After a few glasses of our fine wine selection, I chose the Tenderloin.
It was very tender and wonderful. This came with whipped potatoes, caramelized onions, roasted mushrooms asparagus, and with THE SPECIAL BUCKBERRY STEAK SAUCE!!!
It was one of the finest meals I have had .
The setting could not get any better. We had a corner table OUTSIDE, with a wonderful view of The Smokey Mountains of TN.
Make this a destination trip next time you want a wonderful experience.
