“Excellent country breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2012

This is the "go to" place for the locals. It is on Hwy. 321 about 2-3 miles from the parkway in Gatlinburg. We always take our friends and family here for breakfast. They have homemade cinnamon rolls that are not short on goodness or calories! Excellent country ham, sausage and omelets. A lot of options on the menu. Good hot coffee with carafe brought to your table to keep you supplied. Can't comment on lunch because we usually eat too much breakfast. Service is great. Atmosphere is plastic tablecloths, seat yourself. It's your typical country restaurant with country food and people waiting in line to get inside. Ample servings of any choice. Be sure to ask if something you want is not on the menu. They will try to accommodate you. We go every time we are in town.

“There's a reason everyone loves this place...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2012

Avoid the tourist pancake houses - GO HERE! We try to avoid the chains and tourist spots, so when we read the reviews, we knew we had to try it - we were so glad we did. They make delicious homemade bread and use it for their French Toast - it was fabulous. Eggs are eggs wherever you go... what makes them great here is that they were hot, the sides (biscuits, grits, meats) were cooked right, and the service was excellent. Several of us had pancakes - they were wonderful as well. We loved our waitress, and enjoyed chatting with some of the locals, and enjoyed coloring with our crayons (two adults and four kids 15-24). I'm really sorry we didn't try the cinnamon rolls, but we were too full! As others have said - the food is what you came for, not the decor. Parking is a bit tight, so try to avoid the rush. Enjoy.

“A great breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2012

After reading the reviews, we decided to try it out! We're glad that we did. The restaurant was pretty busy around 10 am when we arrived. My husband got the french toast that had homemade syrup and a homemade cinnamon roll. I got the cheese omelet with home fries and it came with 2 biscuits and gravy. Neither of us could finish the meal. The portions are huge! Overall, the meal was good. Don't expect too much as far as the decor goes. It's all about the food!
