“Great Service, Good Food”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

We stopped here on a whim for dinner while in Gatlinburg. We were greeted and seated promptly. Our waitress was excellent, taking time to chat with us, while not being overbearing. After we ordered, one of our dinners came out differently than we had ordered. The issue was quickly taken care of, and the food was very good. We enjoyed the pianist and the atmosphere was casual, even though the restaurant itself seemed a bit formal. The next time we are in Gatlinburg, we will stop here again for a meal.

“Vegetarians not welcome.”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

Even though there was almost no one there they still sat us at a dirty table, we had to get it wiped off by server #1.
We had fun eating here for some reason however everyplace else we ate in this area had unique vegetarian options on the menu but not this place
The salad bar was pretty good but i would have prefered to order something off the menu.
We could not even get mac & cheeze without bacon in it because it is pre-prepaired.
Tag team servers is anoying.
Probaly not anyone with talent in the kitchen because if there was they would gladly cook something without meat.
I always wonder if the Sysco truck brings all thier food when a place is so unflexable.
Probaly an ok place to eat for folks who eat meat but so are most other places in this town.

“One of the Nicer Restaurants in Gatlinburg”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

One of the nicer restaurants in Gatlinburg, though nothing fancy. Good food and decent salad bar. Convenient to the "strip," and good wait staff.

We ate here while visiting Gatlinburg for spring break and it was the worst experience we had during the entire vacation! There were 6 adults and 5 children in our party and from the moment we walked in the door we were given cold looks. The restaurant was nearly empty and we still had to wait 1o minutes to be seated. We were waited on by four different people which became very confusing. An elderly member of our party asked to be served a sald to avoid the stairs to the salad bar and they refused to bring him one. While asking questions about menu options we were treated like we were dumb and was looked down upon and treated like a nuisance. I guess we didn't look high class enough for these people but were I come from you treat a paying customer just the same as everyone else. To make matters worse they calculated a 30% tip into the bill which is why I believe we were treated so poorly. No matter what kind of service they give the waiters are guaranteed their 30% !! Save yourself some stress and money and stop at the Texas Roadhouse across the street. The sign says casual dining but I can assure you it is not.

“Good Food”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

My husband and I visited the Park Grill Restaurant on a Saturday night. The restaurant is located on the Smoky Mountain side of Gatlinburg away from the center of the strip which means most of the cliental in this restaurant likely are individuals who have purposely sought to eat here, not just because they were walking by the restaurant. It is next door to the Clarion Hotel. We were seated promptly. The atmosphere is welcoming. The salad bar reminded me of Ruby Tuesday's, which was good and should I return for a second visit, I will likely have the salad bar again. We also had the prime rib sandwich which was good, but not breathtaking. Perhaps had we chosen a different meal, we would have been better satisfied. Overall, it's one of the better places to eat in Gatlinburg and is away from the hustle and bustle of those who are standing in line to see Ripley's Believe It or Not establishments and hawkers wanting to sell you discounted tickets to Dollywood.
