“Fresh Food, great Porch, family friendly”
Reviewed June 6, 2014 via mobile

Hidden gem in Gatlinburg- search for it! Best staff- great menu- kept going back again and again! Only thing I would add to the menu is a fruit selection for the kiddos :)

“Not real bar burgers”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

Did not like the burgers or the chicken tenders. The burgers were like the frozen patties you get at the grocery store. The tenders had a different batter that none of use liked. There were only three options on the children's menu. On the plus side the chips were good.

We apprecitate your feedback, we are a new restaurant and we want to understand our customers needs. Our burgers are Fresh Ground Ribeye and Short Beef Rib Meat, a higher end burger that you can't find at a Grocery Store. We have had Rave Reviews on them, you are the first dissapointed guest. Our Chicken tenders are in a beer batter, so yes, it is not a typical cheaper batter that one may be used to. Our Kids menu is limited, but we always have the ability to make a kid something special, just ask your server and we will accomodate as best we can. Thanks again for your Review!
