The food at the Foglight is excellent. Never been disappointed! You need to give it a try. The owners are very friendly and they are very professional.

If you don't mind veering off the beaten path just a bit and want some really, really good food, try the Foglight Foodhouse in Rock Island, TN. The setting is gorgeous, back in the woods and right on the water. It is casual and rustic, but the food anything but ordinary. Everything is fresh, high quality and delicious. We highly... More

Hubby and I recently ate at Foglight Foodhouse on a week night. It was not crowded at all. We had a lovely table overlooking the water. The view of the river was nice and the outdoor twinkle lights were a nice touch. The service was good and the restaurant was nice and clean. The food, however, was just average. I... More

Thank you for taking the time to review my restaurant. While I have to disagree with your opinion of "average," I will say that your selections were two mainstream entrees placed on the menu to satisfy the less-daring diner, but happen to be two of our best-sellers. I invite you to come again soon and sample some of our more... More

We ate here for our 25th wedding anniversary while staying at a cabin nearby. We had a great view of the Caney Fork River while enjoying incredible food. The service was very good also. I got the filet; it was the best restaurant filet I have ever had, perfectly cooked and seasoned. The green beans also were great, I would... More

We stopped in on a trip through the area. This is a bit off the main road, but very much worth the drive. The deck seating overlooks the water and is lovely. The pretzel appetizer was delicious. I had the bisque and found it very salty and couldn't eat it. I did tell the waiter but we were still charged... More

Thank you for taking the time to review my restaurant, and for the kind words. I'm disappointed you found the bisque to be salty- it was addressed the moment I read your review, and will not be a problem in the future. I'm even more concerned about your assessment of the service. I strive for excellence, and this, too, will... More

Loved that you had to "get lost to find it". We sat outside overlooking a stream (?). It was so dark out there that we didn't know if we were seeing a lake or a stream or what! A great place IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE! I loved it. Cajun plate was divine and my salad with grilled shrimp was... More

I've been there several times. It's not a quick in quick out venue but it is a great place to come and relax. Scenery is great and the people give great service. Many times the parking lot is full of vehicles from other states.

On my first visit to rock island state park we happened on this place and tried it. It's not what we expected in the middle of "nowhere." It's worth the 2 hour drive from Nashville even without the park. I had the crawfish bisque and we shared baked mushroom appetizer. Both terrific. Entrees also wonderful. Service excellent and friendly. Highly... More

The appetizers are delicious and can make a meal just on their own. Seafood bisque is excellent. Love the steak filet, tender and juicy. The salads and veggies are good too. The dessert bread puddings are creamy and oh so good. Love this restaurant, their staff is friendly and helpful, and the owner wants everyone to have the best meal... More
