Was conveniently located near our hotel. Ate breakfast and dinner here while we stayed at Talley Ho Inn. They make their own white bread, which made the toast taste great! I had a crispy chicken salad for dinner. The servings were generous and prices were...More

We stopped in for lunch after touring Cades Cove. We had forgotten it was Sunday - all the patrons were dressed for church and the restaurant had the Sunday Buffet out. We were very impressed with the buffet - far better than the typical name...More

No one was in a hurry here, staff or customers. That was fine after hiking in Tuckaleechee Caverns near Townsend. The buffet does not have many choices compared to other buffets we have visited, but we found plenty to eat. Their fried chicken and desserts...More

We really enjoyed this restaurant-fried chicken was excellent and the staff was friendly. We didn't have a long wait to get in, but wouldn't surprise me during busy times, as it is a popular place!

We needed a place to have supper before returning to our cabin. This place looked busy so we decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed. Would recommend!

This is the last restaurant before entering the Great Smokies from Townsend and has a buffet breakfast for $8.99 that's average, but worth it. Be aware that most everything in Townsend closes down early and this restaurant might be closed early in the evening. Forget...More

This place is straight out of the past, the decorations, furniture, people and food. I don't think it has been updated in the last 25-30 years. The hostess seated us near the buffet. Behind us there were perhaps 20 people in the restaurant, 3 servers....More
