A culinary delight! Seriously the best food in all of Gatlinburg--and we have eaten at many places! If you do not stay here, at least get reservations for dinner there one night. You will love it!

Be sure to make a reservation for dinner at least a day in advance...it's a popular destination. Breakfast was fantastic and with superb service.

Evening dinner with prime rib, potato, soup, and salad was good, but not at the level that I would have expected with their reputation. Service was average, but adequate.

At the Buckhorn Inn we strive to exceed your expectations, not just to meet them. I am sorry that we did not "wow" you this time and hope that you will give us another chance. We pride ourselves on warm, gracious service and delicious food.

There is one seating each evening at 7 pm. Reservations are required. The turkey we had on the first night was the best we've ever eaten. Great service. I can't say enough.

This was one of those one seating, one menu restaurants. The food was delicious. I don't like asparagus, but the asparagus soup was to die for. The view from the back porch added to the ambiance. There is an Inn attached. We will return and...More

We were a party of four and were seated next to the entrance. We were served by three different waitresses and all three were very unfriendly and had no personality. They were not very engaged with us or anyone else that we could see. The...More

I eat at the Buckhorn every time we have a family vacation in Gatlinburg. Great staff, location, and food. Always a good alternate restaurant even if you don't stay.

It is a set menu each night I think it is set about a week before. There is only one entree each nigh: however, I'm a vegetarian and they made a special dinner for me.
