    We sat outside with the noises of nature (and a tiny bit of road noise tho the road is not visible) and happy voices around us. Our meals were well-prepared and quite delicious. The freshness of the ingredients was evident in every bite. The flavors were expertly combined and we craved the next bite while still savoring the last bite. The attentiveness and knowledge of the staff is excellent and comforting. Everyone was inviting, appreciative, and warmingly professional.

    I have been excited about trying the Bistro for months! And I’m so disappointed to have to write a less than positive review. The setting and ambiance were fantastic. They were playing an amazing playlist of gentle folk before it got too loud to hear (normal for a Friday night!). The food, with a few exceptions, was great. The issue came down to the service. The serving staff needs more help.

    Jeff Carter is an excellent chef at Appalachian Bistro. We were fortunate to get a covered table outside overlooking the gardens, an area often used for weddings. Our server and sommelier, Aileen, was outstanding. She was knowledgeable, friendly without being intrusive, and handled our requests with aplomb and grace. The food, from the starters to the main courses, to the desserts were absolutely scrumptious. Beautifully prepared and presented and so delicious. What an amazing find.

    We had a wonderful dinner here! Our server, Asa, was friendly and took good care of us. The food presented beautifully, and it was delicious. We had a table on the covered patio and as it got dark, the lights came on and it was so pretty. There were even a fire in the firepit just off the patio. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Townsend!

    This was by far the best meal we have had on our vacation in Tennessee. Our waiter, Asa, was very knowledgeable about the menu and very friendly and attentive. I had the trout and grits and my husband had the sweet tea pork chop. We also started with a lovely salad and shared the flourless chocolate cake for dessert. The outside patio was the perfect temperature, and we had a lovely dinner.

    Was our third time eating at Dancing Bear Bistro. All three times the servers, food and ambience was great. Will differently go back again. Wish the room rates were a little lower otherwise would stay for 3 day weekend. Weather was perfect for the out door eating area. Mothers day brunch was great just little pricey for 2 meals and two drinks but you pay for what u really get. We both left stuffed !

    Dancing Bear is Our new favorite dining spot in the Knoxville area. The menu is outstanding, and the atmosphere is sophisticated yet there is a “mountain” charm about the place. Great music (Chris Thile, Nickel Creek, Allison Krauss) on their playlist, and the bar is also exceptional. They have great vegetarian options, but the sweet tea brined pork chop is the best we’ve ever had.

    One of the best meals we have had. With an increasing number of very good dining options in Blount and Sevier Counties, our dining experience at Dancing Bear Appalachian Bistro was one of the best. From the focaccia to the pork belly burnt ends, filet, and sour cherry cheesecake, it was a wonderful experience! The ambiance of Dancing Bear makes for one of the most pleasant evenings out we have had in a long time. We loved being able to sit at the fire pit after dinner and enjoy the beauty of our surroundings. We will be back!

    The food is fantastic and fresh! I highly recommend the Rainbow Trout and grits :) The portion size was just right and I left feeling satisfied and not overstuffed. My only complaint is the music. It was true to Appalachia with banjos and the like, but the volume was way too loud! I love a good banjo, but it was fast and nerve-wracking. Not very relaxing! I couldn't hear people talking at my own table.

    My wife and I enjoy fine dining and Dancing Bear did not disappoint. From the moment we arrived every staff member was very welcoming and friendly. The restaurant has an excellent setting which offers indoor and outdoor dining. All of our courses were delicious. This is one of the best dining experiences we have ever had. We were celebrating our 25th anniversary and I would not hesitate to recommend Dancing Bear for any special occasion. The couple dining next to us forgot one of their to go boxes and the waiter threw it away thinking they weren't coming back. When the woman returned the staff freshly prepared her an entirely new meal to take home at no charge! I think that says a lot about the restaurant and it's staff!

    Beef tenderloin and fried oyster appetizers were delicious. Both watercress and Caesar salads were very good. Trout entree was on the heavy side and halibut entree was a little dry. Cocktails, ambiance and service were all great!
