Took my mom to lunch there. It was not overly busy. However, our waiter took or order, brought our drinks, then we didn't see him again until he brought the check. Yet all the while he went out of his way to make sure the...More

Country cooking at its best. Everything I saw coming from the kitchen look delicious. Service was excellent. Blazing fire in the fireplace. They also have a "country store" in the checkout area.

I grew up stopping here for breakfast during family vacations to Chatanooga. After 15 years, I stopped here with my husband. The restaurant is everything I remembered except the portions were lacking. While I was satisfied with my $5.95 heaping bowl of loaded grits that...More

Have always wanted to try the Smoke House Restaurant at Monteagle and we finally did. We were not all impressed by the food. I had the Brisket Dinner and it might as well have been pot roast with liquid smoke put on it. It was...More

After attending a concert at The Caverns, found this restaurant nearby. Choice of menu or buffet of mostly southern style cooking. Smoked meats are their specialty and the smoked chicken may be the best I ever had. Pork is also excellent but brisket was tough...More

A real country treat while driving thru the mountains in Tennessee. There’s a hotel here also and a place for performances. The food was so good. I had a baked potato stuffed with bar-b-q pork, butter, sour cream, bacon bits, cheese and onions. Only thing...More

The food on the breakfast buffet was very good. I happen to like grits and it was nice that they had both cheesey grits and plain grits. Not as much as I was expecting with regard to variety of items though, so that's why this...More

Smokehouse has some of the best ribs I've ever had. I think it's tied with my other most favorite BBQ- the original Dreamland in Tuscaloosa, AL. If you're traveling on I-24 and want to eat, get off at the Monteagle exit and go a quarter...More

A good variety, buffet available, and full menu. Tried the bar the first night -- fried chicken was dry and had no flavor and the greens were very bitter. Ate off menu the next night and was a better choice. The breakfast omelot was huge--more...More
