Entered restaurant excited atmosphere seemed great , but my husband and I ordered the 11 oz. ribeye steak or so it was supposed to be. I think it was more a sirloin and the 11oz part was a bit of an exaggeration( very small). The steaks were burnt and had no seasoning or flavor. We had 2 choices of sides... More

We eat here every time we are in maggie Valley. We ate here twice in a week. The french onion soup is a must, the best I have ever ate. I got steaks both nights. My husband got the pork chops. The salads and sides are also very good! The best margaritas I have had!! Just an amazing small town... More

We returned to Maggie Valley this evening and elected to have half a rack of ribs each. Our server - Frank - was very patient with us as we decided on the entrée. I like the cheddar grits for a side item, the wife baked sweet potato. Frank got a large party just after our food arrived, so service slowed... More

Good steaks and a good variety of food on the menu. Atmosphere at Christmas time was beautiful. If you go early you shouldn't have to wait for a table.

Good food. Horrible service! Sit in outside seating area and had to wait 1:45 minutes for a simple hamburger from start to finish. Waiter did not have the ability to prioritize. Don't expect to get in and get out at this place.

With several local referrals, we dined here. The dinner meal was good - but NOT outstanding. Service - somewhat lacking. Value - less than marginal - price well above that deserved.

We visited on our way home and it was excellent!!. Frank is a great server and I would recommend taking his advice on the food. He won't steer you wrong. We had steak and crab legs and it was well worth it. Go try it you won't be disappointed!!

It has been roughly 16 years since last time I ate here, and all I can remember was the delightful béarnaise sauce you get when you eat the filet mignon..tonight, I have chosen the filet and my husband the prime rib. Both steaks were absolutely wonderful! Though the side choices, I am not to fond of. The choices you get... More

Not a bad experience, but not good enough to go back. Steak was over-priced but got it in hopes that it would be worth the price - it wasn't. Staff was friendly and accommodating.
