RT lodge is one of our favorite places. The food is expertly prepared and presented, no matter what you order. Attentive staff with lovely, calm dinning arrangements and ambiance. Our only regret is the rainy weather kept us from having a S'more afterwards.
Our party of 10 had an outstanding evening! Loved the ambiance and the food was excellent!
The food was excellent, as always, but the service was lacking. The waitress was polite and professional, but she was inattentive to our needs. I spent the vast majority of my meal without a beverage, and it took her a long time to clear dishes, etc. This was my first negative experience from the RT Lodge; in fact, the service is usually top notch. While it won’t necessarily prevent me from returning, it was certainly disappointing.
Great table and bar services. Menu offering was outstanding. Top shelf food quality and value
Parking was a serious issue and a frustrating way to start the evening. The establishment needs to address this limitation as it could impact return visits.
The food was cold and had to be sent back. It took forever for them to bring back out to the table. The room was cold and we were seated in the back.
Beautiful setting and facility, flavors were amazing and the service was perfect.
This is the best place to eat in Maryville. The evening atmosphere is perfect! It’s not just a restaurant, it’s an experience. The chef is very creative and does not disappoint. Complementary s’mores at the huge fire pit after dinner is a great touch.
Trevor Stockton has outdone himself. The fried chicken with his famous pickles and hot sauce were SO crazy good that I just ate every bite. I probably should have not stuffed myself, but it was hot, juicy and so flavorful. The servers and staff of the entire establishment were kind and courteous. Can't wait to go back!
The food and service was Great.
The best meal I have had in years. The steak was in the top 3 I have ever had. The funny thing is as extraordinary as the food was the service was even better. Liberty was our waitress and she was the example to which all in the hospitality industry should strive to be. We will definitely be back. We consider them to be a great value, not cheap mind you, but the best value we have found.
The food was spectacular! We started off with pimento cheese and rye chips for an appetizer, My husband and daughter shared the Ribeye for 2 and it was delicious. I had the beet salad and chicken and dumplings which were amazing as well. Ambience was excellent as well as the staff.
Hidden gem in Maryville. Wonderful god and excellent service!
We love going to the RT Lodge. One of our favorite places in the area for a special occasion. The food and the setting are wonderful.
We had a wonderful meal. All members of our party joined the clean plate club. The large group that came in at the end of the meal were just a little bit loud for our quiet family meal.
Absolutely loved dining on the veranda. Such a beautiful space, wonderful food, perfect service, and ending the experience with smores by the fire was so much fun!
Wonderful appetizers and salads. Really enjoyed the fried chicken. Excellent service.
We enjoyed our 17th Anniversary at the restaurant at RT Lodge. A personalized card was waiting for us, and we were offered complimentary champagne! The food and service were exceptionally good. A lovely evening all around.
Always an outstanding experience. Unique setting. Best hospitality. Incredible food. Top notch destination.
Fried Chicken was to die for. Katherine was an efficient and personable server, she made our experience even better!! Oh, and the grounds were stunning.
We were impressed from the moment we walked from our car. Wooded softly lit walkways, then the lodge. Friendly professional people greeted us and showed us to our reserved table. A well rounded wine selection, a knowledgeable server, delicious food, then, with wine in hand, a walk through the woods to the fire pit. Perfect!
The atmosphere and our server were excellent! We ordered the ribeye for two, and unfortunately the meat was so tough you could hardly chew it. The sides were good, but we couldn’t eat a large portion of the steak. Our server advised his supervisor that our steak was tough. She graciously offered complimentary drinks and dessert. If we return, we will try a different entree!
The Board Room was perfect and Charlie was an outstanding server. The dessert s'mores and fire were a perfect ending to a great night.
Another wonderful dinner at RT Lodge! Love the woodsy yet elegant atmosphere, the attentive staff, and the excellent food. We had drinks by the outdoor fireplace, then came inside to a lovely dinner by an inside fireplace. Kudos to Gary and staff for running such a gem of a place! We’ll be back!
Great anniversary! Excellent meal, exceptional setting, and really good friendly service. First visit but there will be others. A little pricey but worth it at the same time.
It was our first dining experience at your restaurant and we were delighted. The food is delicious and the atmosphere is unmatched with any place in our area. We had the cheese board to start and it was a perfect presentation and tasted as good as it looked. We then followed with the steak for two and our tastebuds will be thanking us for a long time! We then strolled through the beautiful garden and ended our experience with a back yard smore. We thank you for a great dining experience and can't wait to visit again.
Lovely. Very professional. Elegant and fun at the same time. Loved the s’mores!
My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at RT Lodge and we had an outstanding experience. Staff was friendly and very professional. We enjoyed our dinner and the atmosphere was pleasant.
Never saw my wife enjoy a meal more. Her ribeye was cooked a perfect medium rare and was tender and tasty. But I think she enjoyed the veggies even more. From the meager taste she allowed me I agreed with her evaluation. My chicken was flavorful and not too crusty which is always a fear when ordering it at an untried restaurant. Pieces were small and hence difficult to cut. Was reluctant to use my hands in your classy dining area but my taste buds over ruled my manners a few times.
Thanks for a very nice dinner.

Husbands birthday dinner. Loved the heirloom tomato salad & fried chicken.
Its been over 2 years since we dined at the RT Lodge and the new chef and service changes are obvious and greatly appreciated. The biscuits and fried chicken are the best we’ve ever eaten. The cocktail list if very interesting and there are plenty of good value wines that pair well with their food offerings Pro-tip: save a piece of the fried chicken, ask for a box and some of the amazing green hot sauce and fix yourself a chicken biscuit in a toaster oven for a leftover, you’ll be making another reservation within minutes. Bravo to the RT Lodge!
Our first time there. We went for my husband's birthday, and there was even a birthday card on the table for him, signed by all the staff! What a great opening!
Our waitress was so sweet and kind!
The drinks were delicious. The heirloom tomato salad was wonderful. My husband had duck and I had rib eye steak. Both were fabulous. And then, the peaches and sweet tea ice cream dessert was a delightful surprise as was the fruit and nuts drink. We walked around the grounds which are gorgeous, and finished off with a S'more at the fire pit.
I can't wait for our next special occasion there!
We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your first visit and we feel honored that you chose to celebrate a birthday at the Lodge. Sounds like you all had a great evening and took full advantage of our property. After dinner s'mores are our favorite! We sure hope to see you back again soon. -The Team at RT Lodge
We celebrated our anniversary here and couldn't have been more pleased. We got the steak for two and it was cooked to perfection. We enjoyed the rustic ambience of the lodge with drinks before being seated for dinner. We were seated by the picture window overlooking the garden and koi pond which was beautiful as we ate. Service was outstanding and our server very attentive. Highly recommend and plan to return to try other dishes off their menu.
Paul - we are thrilled that you chose to celebrate your anniversary at the Lodge! We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your dinner and experience. Hope that you come back again soon!
We were there to celebrate my son's birthday and everyone that got the burger said it was the best hamburger they had ever had!
We are glad that you enjoyed the Lodge burger during your son's birthday celebration! We feel special that you celebrated with us. Please come back soon!
This is one of our favorite places to eat in Maryville. A hidden jewel for sure. Seasonal food excellently prepared.
Love the music they play! Servers are always friendly and make sure you feel special. Highly recommend RT Lodge only I want to keep it to myself.
Thank you for taking the time to review your evening with us! We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your experience from food to service. We truly appreciate you spreading the word. Hope to see you back again soon!
We were trying RT Lodge restaurant for the first time with my husband’s brother and his wife. The service was wonderful, food was delicious, and the atmosphere was perfect. I would definitely come here again and would recommend it to others.

Had a great time at The Twins Birthday Bash.
Thanks to Everyone who made the evening Very Special!!
Happy birthday twins!! We are so glad you celebrated with us. It was a lot of fun to host your group!
The whole dining experience was superb! We both had the trout which was done to perfection. All the courses were delivered promptly by the friendly serving staff. Our waitress answered our questions and took very good care of us; job well done, Christina!
Thank you for taking the time to review your evening at the Lodge! We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed the trout. It has become a favorite of many. We will be sure to share your kind remarks with Christina. Hope to see you back again soon!
The place is amazing. The food and service were spectacular.
Fine dining in an upscale but relaxed setting. One of the nicer restaurants in the Knoxville area. Creative menu. Only one vegetarian entree, but it was excellent.
Chuck, Thank you for taking the time to review your evening at the Lodge. We are so glad that you enjoyed your dinner and appreciate all your generous words! Nothing makes us happier than hearing when guests feel relaxed. We would love to see you back again soon!
As usual, RT Lodge is our preferred dining out “go to.” From the greeting at the door when we arrive, then a nice glass of Hogwash wine by the koi pond or fireplace, then a wonderfully appointed dinner—we always bring our our of town houseguests to this wonderful venue..
Teresa - thank you for your kind words! We agree, it's the perfect time of year for Hogwash by the koi pond. Nothing makes us happier than hearing when guests utilize our whole property for the evening. Thank you for sharing the Lodge with your visitors. We hope to see you back soon!
