“Delicious!”
Reviewed August 6, 2014

We have tried BBQ in several different restaurants, and we were impressed with the BBQ here. The pulled pork was wonderful, and my husband really enjoyed his burnt ends. My daughter had the salad bar, and she found it a bit lacking. Not much variety on the salad bar. Service was great - very friendly. Highly recommend.

“Was ok...”
Reviewed August 6, 2014 via mobile

The food was good if you like smoked ri s. Staff was great. Restrooms were clean. We also came for the breakfast buffet. It was nice but not nearly as extravagant as advertised. The food was good, none the less. Nothing to complain about :)

“Good BBQ.”
Reviewed August 5, 2014 via mobile

There was nothing overly fancy about the place. It was clean, especially the restrooms. Two option in one building. There is a pizza parlor in the same space. Smoked sausage sandwich was good. Salad bar looked good too.

“The best, I've ever had..”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

People tell you about "fall off the bone ribs" like it's a myth...but I can tell you it's not! The ribs at this place, are beyond amazing. I enjoyed them so much, I wanted to go back the next night, but we went to another one of their restaurants (which was just as awesome) I can't say enough about the service, it was also amazing. We had a party of eleven, they did what they could to seat us all, and we hardly had to wait. Typing this makes me want some ribs...I don't see how anyone could goto Gatlinburg, and not eat here. Thanks again! I will be back, even if it is a 12 hour drive!

“Don't go to Gatlinburg without eating at Bennett's”
Reviewed August 4, 2014

And Yes, I got the tee-shirt. Bennett's offers deep fried corn on the cob, great pork sandwiches, and the best sliced beef brisket east of Texas.

The atmosphere is awesome,but watch the creekside parking or you may end up in the creek (like some have).

The new 'deep fried corn on the cob' is a true hit.

BUT, what's with bringing that big tin bucket on the table when you're seated? We didn't order ribs.....
