We always eat here when in Gatlinburg. Ribs are great and the beer is cold. Service is always attentive and nice. I recommend.

Food is outstanding good. Plenty of food, large portions, good selections for lunch and dinner. You will most likely leave with a doggie bag. Breakfast buffet was super, plenty of goodies. A pizza bar is right next door if you prefer.
