“Super local recommendation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2013

We were given this place as an alternative to all the crazyiness of downtown Gatlinburg...more of a local's place. What a good find. Good food, nice service, live music, wonderful creekside setting, neat building...all in all a wonderful recommendation.

“Excellent Everything! Food, Service, Live Music, View...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2013

My girlfriend and I stopped by one evening after hearing some very promising things from other locals about the restaurant and its new owner. Supposed to be a quick dinner as we had things to do and kids to get back to...3 1/2 hours later we left! Everything was outstanding and I can't say enough about PJ (owner) and his wife. Truly made us feel special and at dinner with "friends". I now regularly recommend the place to to tourists...Hard to beat live music every night, good food, friendly atmosphere, glass on either side of restaurant with view of a creek and the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. Don't forget to go and see the tree over the restaurant after dark...You'll thank me!

“Wonderful Evening Meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2013

We arrived eary and were greeted by a friendly staff. The service was great and attentive. The chicken parmiagina was excellent and my wife had the piccatta trout and really enjoyed it. The evening was made even better by the live music, a wonderfuly tallented singer, Neesee, playing a keyboard and preforming requests. We look forward to going again and bringing friends and family.

“Dissappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2013

The service at this restaurant was outstanding but the food was not good. My husband ordered the trout and it had an odd taste-like it had been pan fried in old cooking oil or lard. I ordered the chicken and it was tough. Vegetables were good. Bread was a roll soaking in garlic butter.
Recommend passing this one by.
