    The meal is very over priced. My potatoes were cold. The steak was great. Ordered a Long Island and it was terrible, never tasted anything like it before. They did remove it from my bill. But definitely not work the $ spent.

    I made a reservation, and still had to wait even though it wasn’t busy. The service was great, but the food portions for the price were quite small. It was delicious, but the chicken breast was the smallest one I’ve ever seen. All in all, it was just an overpriced experience.

    Beautiful restaurant and drive up to the resort. Reserving a table was easy, and service was quick. All of my questions about the menu were answered by Chef Bill since my server could not answer them. I felt somewhat pushed to have all my food out at first, but after a couple mentions of what I wanted timing wise, everything was great. I wish I could have had a new napkin after diving into the honey. Aside from that, service was good. Opening biscuits and charcuterie board with local sourcing touches were immaculate and characteristic to a Smoky Mountain upscale dinner. Despite being slightly underwhelmed by the she-crab bisque and margherita flatbread, I felt that the dinner itself was unique to Tennessee dining and very enjoyable. This is definitely a great place for families and weekend getaway guests. I wish I had room for dessert! I hope that some seasonal menu changes will happen. I would love to visit once every 3-6 months!

    This was the second time eating there. The food choices and quality of entrees are only fair. The food is overpriced. The appetizers we had were good but the wedge salad was expensive for a half a head of iceberg lettuce with not much on it. Would not recommend this restaurant.

    The food was amazing. The kids menu is priced a bit high in my opinion. I understand the higher prices for the adult meals but $15 for a grilled cheese is a bit high. The service was great and the restaurant is super nice inside. Great stop if you’re at the resort or close by.

    The ambience is good, the restaurant is new. The servers are learning but they will get there. The main issue is the food, needs drastic improvements. We had crab soup and it is very oily, the steak was reasonable but overcooked and the Mango cake was tasteless. So not worth it.

    We must have lucked out because it was the NYE menu but the food wasn’t great. The filet in a pastry was served cold and didn’t seem fresh, too well done with little flavor (supposed to be medium rare). It was a prix fixed menu. The best part was the biscuits. Service was fabulous however as us everyone at the resort.

    We came with high hopes. The resort is beautiful and we enjoyed some time outside by the fire before our reservation time. When we approached the hostess stand, we were quickly escorted to our table. Almost instantly our server asked for our drink orders. Oddly enough, he seemed in a hurry. Things went downhill from there. We ordered an appetizer and two entrees. Immediately, our entrees were brought. When the server returned he realized we didn’t have drinks nor the appetizer. He quickly brought both. Here’s the thing… the food was fine. I had the short ribs and it was really good. My wife had the shrimp & scallops with grits. They were fair. The pimento cheese dip appetizer was good. The problem with the whole night was the pace, order, and ambiance. The server was hurried the entire night. We came expecting a much more refined dining experience, and for the price, we left disappointed.

    Ok so for a Christmas dinner special menu was added at five star prices at 75.00 per person food was horrible salty salty food. Had to return one of the dishes tasted like pure salt. We were a party of four tried one of each of their dishes. They were all disappointed. It’s that charging 5 star prices you get such low quality over salted food. One member of our party left without eating there main dish from how long it took to replace her plate. Without an even I’m sorry from management.

    We actually ate here the Friday before Christmas and again on Christmas Day, driving over from our home a little more than an hour away. Both meals featured amazing tasting appetizers, salads, entrees and desserts. We plan on bringing family and friends back so they can experience the food too. Prices are a little high to make it anything other than a special occasion for us, but I'm sure it will add to the experience for anyone staying at the resort.

    Maybe it was due to the Holiday but food was of no value at half the price. We will stay at the hotel this spring and give the food one more chance. I hope it was simply due to it being Christmas, $75 for prime rib that was half fat and dry cake simply was disappointing.

    We had Christmas dinner here yesterday and it was excellent. Our party had the amazing biscuits with chef made pepper jam, prime rib, asparagus and carrots over mashed potatoes and one person ordered the chicken with Brussels sprouts. It was beautifully served and our very sweet server was Poppy. She recommended the cheesecake and three of us ordered that but I got the chocolate mousse with peppermint. Each item was delicious, presented so well and Poppy sent us home with all our leftovers for a late snack. It was a lot to eat. The whole place was beautiful and very friendly, we couldn’t have asked for a nicer experience. We hope to return again very soon.
