Wellington's roots run deep in the southern Appalachian Mountains. The cuisine our chef prepares starts with this in mind; a true southern base with inspirations from around the globe. The bar features East Tennessee's most comprehensive selection of whiskeys, as well as an assortment of wines and spirits for any occasion. We hope you take the time to dine with us and experience the true southern Appalachian Mountains.

    Atmosphere was great. We were seated by the fireplace which was nice. Our waitress was very kind and attentive. The food was great. My only complaint is that my medium steak was definitely rare, so they had to fix that which meant I didn’t get to start eating until the rest of the table was about finished. I will definitely return, and hopefully won’t have the same experience with the steak temperature.

    I meet friends for dinner. A very enjoyable evening. The food was prepared to perfection (Crispy Salmon and Brussel Spouts) and the wine pairing was a Chein Blanc. Highly reccomend this restaurant for all occasions.

    The shrimp and grits starter and the Spring Mountain Chicken dish with smashed potatoes and green beans were delicious. Unfortunately, my husband ordered the fried catfish and it was absolutely dreadful. Our server was a lovely young lady, very attentive but not intrusive. We will definitely try Wellington's again. The bartender makes a mean gin martini!

    We chose this restaurant to celebrate our anniversary based on the countless Gluten Free options due to a severe allergy noted on the website and menu. I was excited to celebrate over dinner; however after inquiring our server about the Gluten Free items on the menu we were expecting to try - I was saddened to learn the items are not Gluten Free and they are cross-contaminated as they are fried in fryers with other Gluten Containing foods.

    It was very convenient to have a great restaurant in the hotel . We enjoyed our meal at Wellington’s. The atmosphere was very relaxing and we enjoyed watching the flaming desserts being made at the tables. We also ate breakfast there- it was a little more expensive than chain restaurants- but we got a huge breakfast plate and it was very tasty.

    I made a reservation for two. A special occasion catching up with an old friend. I asked for a table where we could chat. We were sat next to the kitchen and ignored for 30 minutes. The wait staff looked at us as they walked by…but not one person stopped to say hello. When I finally got the attention of the Hostess, who begrudgingly moved us to a different table. This was 50 minutes after our reservation time. By the time our waitress was told she had another table, she wasn’t happy, but took it in stride and did the best she could being over sat. We had good service from that point on, but I doubt if I will make a point of visiting Wellingtons again.

    The food was just ok, nothing to write home about. I had the beef tips and they were lacking flavor. The green beans weren’t very good and the smashed potatoes could have used some seasoning as well. We had the Wellingtons Sundae for dessert and I’m pretty sure the ice cream was freezer burnt vanilla with very little of the sauces. We did enjoy the fried green tomatoes, though.
