I visited 4 days on our vacation and each visit was delicious. The Diner is a beautiful recreation of old time diners. My two teen daughters don't like sit downs but once I took them they were hooked. The food is great and not your typical heat up fare. Everything was delivered to our table hot and every bite was...

We visited on the advice of other people from this site. We really enjoyed. The food and service were superb!! We definitely recommend this place especially the Chopped steak dinner.

Thanks. Of course that Chopped Steak is char-grilled fresh to your order just like all our Steaks, Chicken and all those burgers. Lots of choices from Breakfast to Sandwiches to those suppers/dinners. Thanks again. More

Stopped there for lunch after geeting new kitchen cutlery at the Smoky Mountain Knife Outlet. The service was good the owner was very personable, I had the side salad and the vegetable soup, which reminded me of the soups my Mom used to can. Full of vegetables and very tasty.

Thank SuzyQ for that homemade vegetsble soup recipe plus other seasonal soups. We scratch many items on our menu to serve all as we want to served ourselves, free of excessive sodium, all MSG, etc items none of us need. Thanks for dining with us. PS. SMNO is my destination for family gift buying. More

The food was pretty good and average priced. Service was ok. Nothing spectacular but no complaints. Plenty of parking.

The diner is clean and the waitress with her long skirt and pinned up hair gives the feel of the fifties. The menu is ' out of this world' with hamburgers, clubs as well as full meals. A definite delight.

Was looking for a good cheeseburger and was disappointed, burger was overcooked and dry. Friendly customer service.

Trusting you told us and we took care of it, recooking you another. As they are char-grilled fresh to order our merely mortal cooks can err. We want, need to know. If you order the lean Elk or Buffalo well, it will be dry relative to Angus. Please try again and, always, please tell us at the table. Thanks. More

We found The Diner on our way to our hotel in Sevierville. It was later in the evening for us, so we opted for breakfast food rather than regular rich diner food. We had very good omelettes. The atmosphere was fun, there people were very friendly, and the service was good. I think we would like to go back for... More

We sure appreciate your choice of THE DINER. You can always eat healthy here or choose to indulge. Salads with premium dressings, or olive oil & choice of balsamic, low fat/cholesterol Elk, Buffalo, Veggie or Turkey burgers, veggies, etc are all healthy choices. Regardless, our pleasure to serve.
