We went here during the off season, and maybe that was the problem. We had the restaurant to ourselves up to the very end of our meal. To be fair, our server tried really hard, but he could not rescue the experience. Both steaks ordered were overcooked, and when we were offered a complimentary dessert to make up for it, the deserts we wanted were on the menu but unavailable, The New York Strip was very fatty.

The restaurant is on the second floor, but the handicap access is very limited. Construction/remodeling is ongoing, so maybe this will be fixed before the season starts. There was no show during the time we were there. I expected more as the restaurant itself is well themed, but I doubt we will eat here again.

All this being said, the view here is almost enough to make up for the food

The restaurant was not crowded and had plenty of servers. I enjoyed the view. The food however was terrible and we won't be back. It has a huge bar and a snack bar for the kids.

Went to Ober Gatlinburg the week after Memorial Day. There were hardly any other people there but the staff was great and the food was good. Prices were a little high but that is what you would expect from a restaurant that normally caters to a relatively captive audience with few choices on top of the mountain. The staff was very helpful and the food came out quickly. The view was the best part. We sat right next to one of the large windows and had a wonderful view of the mountains.

The people who worked there were eager to please and courteous as well. Food was great, tasteful and pleasant to view. Seating was ample and time in and out was good.

I had not been up the mountain to Ober Gatlinburg since childhood until this Memorial Day weekend trip. Oh my. It was prime time, Saturday night, holiday weekend, 7 pm and we nearly had the large dining room to ourselves. That was the first clue. We ordered fairly simple drinks which were unrecognizable and undrinkable.

Our server was the only bright spot to the evening. The food was bland and tasteless and the wait was long. The meal was memorable, but for all the wrong reasons. This place really seems to be getting by because of the ski attraction and the skating rink, not the food and beverage business. My advice - go to ski and play and then come down the mountain for dinner elsewhere.

We really felt like we were in a time warp that had left this restaurant behind. It has that depressed feel that management is just going through the motions and does not care about the customer experience anymore.
