The food is just like home and you have a vast variety! So, whoever is with you will find something they like. Did I mention it's all you can eat?!! And includes dessert!!

Good selection of food, even a taco bar. Sometimes meat is a little dry and wished they had more grilled meats. But its all very tasty. Salad bar is packed w/ lots of toppings and other salads. Frozen yogurt and variety of desserts, plus its all you can eat. With a gold pass you get 20% off for your whole... More

Best buffet in the park! Great country cooking food with a variety for everyone. I've been twice and when back at Dollywood, where I'll be heading. Little pricey, but you get amazing food and its a buffet so as much as you want!

My wife and I got in mid-afternoon between the lunch and dinner rushes, so we did not have to wait for very long. The is the quintessential country buffet, and how you feel about that will easily determine whether Aunt Granny's will be one of your favorites and something to be skipped. Of course, you may want to avoid this... More

Probably the best choice if you must eat inside the park. Interesting system where you decide what your tip will be when you pre-pay for your meal before sitting down. Then your receipt is put on the table for the server to take at the beginning of the meal. So, I was happy we were not cheap on the tip,... More

I have eaten here twice and every time I think II won't return. It's convenient for being in the park but it is way fatty and not necessarily wonderfully tasty and I think it's a little pricey for what you get. I think the variety is not that great for how much it is.

It had been years since we had been to Dollywood & had eaten here. Memories came back quickly. Buffet left a lot to be desired, especially for the price you pay. Tried the main food bar. Dirty surrounding the food & the food was either tasteless or bad tasting. Moved to the taco bar. Definitely not Taco Bell. Found hot... More

It is what it is. It is a fast paced all you can eat restaurant with reasonable prices for a theme park. The food is good, not GREAT. It is good for the money. It had a great selection for my husband and I. It was 28 degrees so it was worth every penny to us. My son fell asleep... More

This is the best place to eat lunch inside Dollywood. The buffet here is not much more expensive then you would pay at the other restaurants/quick order places. Plus you can eat a lot and get full. We eat here every time we are in Dollywood. We come here when on vacation once a year to dolly wood. Get a... More
