I had breakfast here twice and dinner once in a two-day visit to Townsend because I liked the relaxed atmosphere and personal service. This is one of the first restaurants coming out of the National Park so it's easy to find. Highly recommended for both price and service!

Our family had dinner here during Smokey Mt vacation. Our waitress was polite and very helpful. We had small children that ordered from kid’s menu and they were very happy. Adults ordered a variety of items and all seemed pleased with their choices. Restaurant was clean and quaint. Great place to take the kiddos.

Date weekend with husband found this restaurant.
3/09/18 We eat supper there it have very flavorful and so good. We went back the next morning for breakfast. My goodness it was fabulous. I got the south western omelette.It was great. We even got 3 pancakes to take with us and eat them for supper. Yes they were good. I called the owner Terry and he talked with me. Most owners will not give you the time of day. Hats of to the Owner and COOKS....Fabulous "COOKS".... This is a must to eat at if your in this area.

This is a great little restaurant off the beaten path. This is located on the Cade’s Cove side of Townsend. They serve very good country style food, with large portions. Worth the stop if you are in the area. Also, they are open even in the Winter.

Well worth the drive into Townsend even if you aren't staying there. The food was good down home cooking. Staff was friendly, place was clean. Might be a little pricy for some but no more then getting at cracker barrel. The portion size is more than plenty for any one. Food was made fresh no frozen or canned biscuits here. When you come visit the Smokeys be sure to support the locally owned "Mom and pop" shops not just the big franchise places.
