2. Our Appalachian Theme

While some other restaurants in Gatlinburg may have a mountain theme, there’s not another one that does Appalachia quite like us. As soon as you see our building, you’ll feel like you’ve come up on a mountain lodge, which is fitting! As you walk through the doors, you’ll see exposed wooden beams, beautiful wooden floors, mountain-themed decor, lantern-esque lights, and much more. You’ll definitely feel like you’ve traveled a long way to enjoy a hot meal and warm accommodations!

4. Our Delicious Food

Of course, the main reason why you need to eat at our restaurant in Gatlinburg is because of the food! It is important to us to keep the tradition alive of food settlers were enjoying when they discovered this beautiful Smoky Mountain area. That’s why you’ll find all kinds of incredible southern meals and smoky barbecue options on our menu. All of our meals start out with a bucket of bread and a mug of vegetable stew.
Classic southern options on our menu include pot roast with carrots and mashed potatoes, beef liver and onions, or crispy fried catfish. If you’d rather have barbecue, we have pulled pork slathered in our house barbecue sauce served with coleslaw and potato salad, or you can try smoked pork ribs or smoked meatloaf. No matter what you get, you’ll have an incredible meal!

5. The Story Behind Our Name
