Stopped here after riding the Great Smoky Mountain Railroad. German Chocolate Cake ice cream is by far the best ice cream that money can buy. Good variety of other desserts. Banana Splits! Good parking available close by. Within walking distance of other shops, etc.

After a long train ride, it was definitely a refreshing treat. Lot of good cooling ice cream. and it was decently clean and had indoor and outdoor seating. Prices were typical for the tourist town.

Decided to stop here while on a lunch break for our rafting and zipping trip. The restaurant was very clean, the lady who helped us was very friendly, and the food was great! Low prices made it even better.
