Nice quiet bar/grill on a hot afternoon. Sat near the window overlooking the creek. Good burgers and fries. Love the 60's and 70's music playing in background. Especially that it is not at ear splitting level.

The hostess told us it was the last locally owned restaurant in downtown Gatlinburg. Neat historic location, although I am glad we got to eat outside. The patio overlooks the river. The inside was kind of musty and older.

Dinner was wonderful and reasonably priced. The blue cheese grits were awesome and the spinach Mac & cheese was too. We highly recommend this restaurant.
