We’ve eaten at Song and Hearth several times. We did not enjoy our meal this visit. Most of the food was salty. Our Son in law’s BBQ whiskey beef tips were dry and salty. The roast beef and Mac and cheese were great. So was the service. Just wasn’t worth the price.

Not a fan of small children in restaurant like this. Wonder if the parents would get the hint if asked to leave...

Food was delicious, however the waitress neglected to take away used dishes between courses. Also when reminded that we had requested a birthday cupcake when making our reservation, she knew nothing about it. We went to the hostess who said they did not do that anymore. But then she said we have some in the freezer I guess we can get one out. She brought out a beautiful platter with Happy Birthday on it written in chocolate and a cupcake with no candle.

The perfect dining experience. Took guests from out of state and could not have been more proud to share this experience with them.

Our server was excellent. We were treated so well. The food was not what we expected. The brisket was dry and some of the side dishes were either bland or over spiced. I believe that the green beans were ghost pepper flavored. The fresh salad was the best part of the meal. It was delicious. The desserts were plentiful but somewhat flavorless. I've had the breakfast buffet at Song and Hearth and it was five star all the way. I will end with this. We dined at 5:00 p.m. when the restaurant opened and food at its freshest. This made no difference.

The experience was very nice. The salad bar and potato bar were really nice. Main dishes were delicious. Fried Chicken was the best I have ever had. Loved the Salmon, ham, cranberries, collards and sweet potato's the best. They were my favorite.
The desserts we tried were okay but not fantastic.
Would definitely recommend.

I was so excited for this buffet. I was disappointed by the limited selection, and that most of the food looked better than it tasted. The mashed potatoes and Mac and cheese were great. The prime rib was so rare it was hardly even cooked and not edible. I really liked the atmosphere, but would have enjoyed it even more of the food was a bit better. There was a pretty large dessert selection, the dessert was the best part.

The atmosphere is quaint and beautiful as the rest of the hotel. The quality of the Saturday evening buffet was not up to par with the rest of the hotel experience. The salad bar was picked over and not replenished, the food selection was limited, and many of the recipes were bland. The food in general at the Dollywood DreamMore resort fell well below my expectations and is not worth the resort level price.

Siblings got together for the weekend at DreamMore Resort to celebrate one brother’s 50th birthday. Our first night there, we ate the prime rib buffet at the Song & Hearth restaurant. Food was wonderful - lots of variety, seasoned perfectly, and just delicious. The 8 adults were completely satisfied and complimentary of the food and atmosphere. The only complaint that I have is the pricing - children over the age of 10 are considered adults and have to pay full adult cost. In addition to each of the 8 adults, we paid $22.95 + tax for a 12-year old who ate a small portion of mashed potatoes and about 4 chicken nuggets.

It was my mother's birthday. Being a fan of Dolly, my mom wanted to come to the resort to dine at the restaurant. We were surprised to learn that the restaurant was buffet styled. Now... with that said, we did enjoy our food and who doesn't love a buffet, but (after-tax) it came to a total of about $25 a person. We weren't necessarily surprised by the price, but personally, I'm not sure if it was worth that.

The chicken etouffee was great. The collard greens, too. A wide variety of desserts lined an entire wall, and the blueberry cobbler was amazing. The other options lacked luster. The steak was tough.

The service was great. The hostess was very kind, and our server was very attentive and sweet. The atmosphere felt very comfortable and I enjoyed the ambiance.

My biggest complaint was as we were leaving. Walking out past the host stand did we see a couple looking at the menu in the bar area. That's when I learned that they had a full dinner menu available in the "lounge" area. I wish the hostess would have mentioned the option, as we would have preferred this. Only looking at the reviews now do I see any mention of the buffet on the OpenTable page.

We planned a meal here to celebrate our anniversary while staying at the hotel. Staff was very nice and gave us a special dessert. But, I was really disappointed in the quality of the food. It wasn’t very good , and baked potatoes were cold. The soup wasn’t well done either. Overall not a good quality for the price.

This was an unexpected treat. While on vacation we were looking for a steak restaurant to celebrate a birthday. Although we found many highly rated the prices were higher than we wanted to expend for a party of 8. This choice provided truly top quality prime rib, succulent salmon and many other choices for a very reasonable price. Highly recommend it.

The buffet had a lot of great options and the taste was good! The staff was very friendly. The only negative in the experience was I didn’t know that I could’ve used my Dollywood Goldpass to receive a 20% discount. I found that out the next day. But next time I will know :)

One of the better buffets still around. The problem with buffets is keeping the food fresh and hot. The vegetables were outstanding, the meats were only so so. The desserts were nothing special, though they were plentiful, they were just ordinary sweets. Over all with the nice atmosphere it was a good experience but nothing that I would crave to do again anytime soon.

Overall price was high ($110 for two adults and two kids) for a buffet, but food was very good. Prime rib was good, but cut really thin. Not sure why we had a reservation because it was definitely not busy.

It was a great experience visiting Song & Hearth at Dollywood's DreamMore Resort. The food was outstanding with some of the best prime rib and Salmon that I have ever eaten. There was a wide selection of entrees, vegetables, salads and delicious desserts. The service was excellent. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Very relaxing atmosphere in which to dine. Although on the high end price wise, well worth the money due to the exceptional food quality, flavors and service. Would recommend that anyone in the area visit this restaurant.

We really enjoyed our experience at The Song and Hearth. There were ten of us that had the dinner buffet and everyone found something to eat given the large number of choices. Not only was the food enjoyed by all, but it was a good value. We would definitely go again next time we were visiting.
