We took the tram up the mountain which passes over roof of this place. If you love BBQ that aroma will drive you crazy. We had to go here for dinner and try it. I had the brisket,my wife had chicken and ribs. They were awesome. Salad bar was good,but have had better. Wait staff here is older and experienced with the menu and pleasing people. Very simple atmosphere here and family friendly. We had plenty to eat with leftovers.

We ate here with our entire family. We had 7 adults and 4 children. We had a fabulous waitress who kept our orders straight and our glasses full, all the while with a smile on her face! We all agreed the food was excellent. Not a fancy place, but very clean and homey. We will visit here again when we are in Gatlinburg.

If you like pit cooked barbecue and grilled meats, this is a good restaurant to visit. The atmosphere is not upscale but very simple, country and family oriented. The wait staff was very good and so was the food. They have a variety of sauces on the table for experimentation and one of those had significant "heat" - probably an 8 on a scale of 1 -10. Too much heat for me but I know there are those out there who have iron stomachs that like that sort of thing. The ribs and barbecue are excellent, the grilled chicken is ok. We bought one of the sauces to bring home. We will eat there again the next time we visit Gatlinburg.

During our week in The Smokey Mountains we ate at Bennett's twice. We had been there last year and will certainly ate there again next year!

We went for breakfast based on a recommendation from the hotel clerk. We were glad we did. Food was good with a wide selection. Good value for the money if you want to pack away a big breakfast.
