We were really pleasantly surprised by how delicious the food is at this restaurant. The service was top notch, there's a distinctly local feel about the place, and we really really enjoyed our meal. It may look like it needs a bit of updating on the outside, but I wouldn't let that deter you from stopping in and getting some... More

We only had breakfast at this restaurant but it was excellent. It is fresh cooked, service even though they were slammed was quick, hot and really good. The service was excellent and the waitresses had us in stitches. We had enough left overs to have breakfast the next day. If we return to the area we will definitely return to... More

Service was a bit slow. Food was ok. I was hoping their trout was local fresh but it wasn't. People were nice and friendly.

We had been exploring the area and were looking for a restaurant when we came upon Riverstone. We were warmly and promptly greeted. Looking around as we walked to our table, the place had a cozy/home feel to it. Our server Erin was very attentive to our needs and gave us the space to enjoy our meals. My wife had... More

Our trout dinner was not good. No flavor, very fishy taste. Plain boring baked potato and salad. The price was higher than other restaurants in the are for the same meal. Would not return. Carriage House was much better!

Me and my wife were on our way to Cades Cove and wanted some breakfast and I had read about this place on Trip Advisor so decided to give them a try. When we entered we were greeted and told to sit where we like. They came and took our order. Wife got cheese omelet and grits. I ordered eggs... More

We stopped in for lunch today. This is just an average restaurant. A lot of the food is not made from scratch but from a can or frozen.

The Riverstone Family Restaurant was originally opened and owned by Terry & Belinda Haley in 2004 and gave it its name and the reputation of having the very best food anywhere around. We share the same Rep at the Riverstone Lodge right next door.We truly do have the best of quality of food anywhere. We are from Mississippi and really, really know how to cook real southern food with many years exp. We are open year round 7 days a week serving breakfst, lunch & dinner.We have been licensed as a CERTIFIED ANGUS RESTAURANT serving only certified angus beef for all fresh beef items on menu. If your not aware, certified angus is now said to be better than "PRIME".Nothing but the best. Even our hamburgers are fresh Certified Angus. Hope to see you soon! Don't forget the fresh homemade Fried Green Tomatoes.
