Used the call ahead seating and were seated when we arrived. Our waitress did an outstanding job and our meal was great only small complaint would be a large section of sides , but with the great salad bar no big deal. Price consistency with steakhouses in our area. Will return

Recently had the pleasure of dining here. The restaurant is run like a welll oiled machine. Service is prompt and staff very friendly. I definitely recommend using call ahead seating our family got the filet and prime rib. It was delicious. The meat was melt in your mouth tender..

I was looking forward to this place after reading all the good reviews on TripAdvisor. I will say the salad bar and mixed drinks were awesome, but the steak was just not that good.

This restaurant is so popular and has such great ambience by the river... and great food!! If visiting Gatlinburg...this is a must! The salad bar is great! Seafood / grilled trout is a favorite. Call ahead to put your name on waiting list...there can be a wait! Or sit in bar area...first come/first served.😀

We have been eating here for years, anytime we stay in the area we make it a priority to eat here. The peddler comes to your table and cuts your steak right in front of you. The salad bar is the freshest and beat of any I have ever had. Love the smoked oysters. Don't miss this place

My husband and I dined here for my birthday back in December. We were told it was great and it did not disappoint. The steaks are amazing and the desert was to die for!

My wife and I took our son along with some friends and their kids. This was our first time eating here. The service was outstanding! It was better than any place I have ever been. The amount of food for the kids on the kids menu was great and it was based on their age. I ordered a 12 ounce... More

This restaurant is one of our favorite places to eat in Gatlinburg. We eat here at least 4 times a year. This Sunday's meal was excellent as usual but for one thing......the restaurant was the busiest we have seen it. It took us 30 minutes to get to and thru the salad bar and we were there when it opened.... More
