Ate here after a day of hiking and thought it was good, but not great. Have eaten at many restaurants in Gatlinburg and only found this to be an average place. Our service was good, helpful and friendly. The prices are on par with other Gatlinburg restaurants. Wouldn't say this place is bad, but there are many other restaurants I... More

A group of us ladies went for lunch one day and, of course, a variety of food was ordered. Everyone said how tasty and delicious theirs was. Mine was a salad bar and everything was fresh and appetizing. Their tea was also delicious and they don't mind making you a to-go glass. You will enjou your visit.

The food is great. Service is quick and the staff constantly checks on you, and is very friendly. The price is comparable to any of the restaurants in the same grouping.

The food is wonderful and a great value for the price. We will definitely go back here. It's one of the better restaurants we've eaten at in Pigeon Forge.
