    Best Italian Restaurant: Best Italian in Gatlinburg

    by Florida999 Updated Jul 18, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Very good food, but be warned portions are huge! I ordered a calzone, and the warning on the menu was an understatement ( it said "this is larger than you might expect!") , well the thing was large enough to feed a small country....
    I enjoyed half of it, after a 10 mile hike, had 1/4 of it the next day for dinner , and tossed the rest on day 3.
    The rest of my family had pasta dishes that were also large, but good and not quite as huge as the calzone.

    Favorite Dish: Lol, calzone!

    Bar-B-Cuties: Bar-B-Cuties

    by gkitzmil Updated Apr 4, 2011

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is GOOD southern BBQ and add extra sauce! This is a place I love to eat -- four times my last trip!! I don't eat pork but I love the smoked turkey!

    Bar-B-Cutie, a local establishment in business since '48, sports slick new locations. At these locations, and at Nashville locations on Donelson Pike and Nolensville Road, they serve up the real deal.

    Favorite Dish: Barbque platter

    The Old Mill: In Pigeon Forge, the Old Mill...

    by Ky_Happy_Dad Updated Apr 4, 2011

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In Pigeon Forge, the Old Mill resturant is a good choice for families and it is near a soccer field and local park. A bonus if the kids need to run off energy!
    Good view of old mill next door. Country style food is reasonably priced and it is not part of a chain.

    Favorite Dish: Home style vegtables and rolls. Also the bakery makes good pecan pies you can order to go.

    Jack's Barbecue: Recommended by locals as best BBQ in Nashville!

    by robertlarsonjr Updated Dec 5, 2010

    The food was some of the best barbecue one I have ever had. The line was a 25 minute wait on a Saturday to get a plate but most of the people were locals and that is apparently where they go when its time for Saturday barbecue.

    Favorite Dish: The smoked sausage and brisket were my wife and my favorite. If you are our doctor reading this we are just kidding. We ordered two salads.....

    Marlowe's: Southern Food - You Can't Beat It

    by DueSer Updated Jan 28, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This restaurant located one mile south of Graceland is a terrific restaurant serving barbeque delights. No matter what you order, I doubt you'll be disappointed but, their ribs have won awards. And they have fun with their menu - for example, on the list of desserts: Hunka Hunka Apple Pie:-)

    The best part has to be that they will pick you up (in a pink limo no less!) and bring you back to the restaurant if you're too tired to drive or want to drink but don't want to drive home drunk. They also deliver.

    Favorite Dish: BBQ pulled pork sandwich. It's fantastic.

    Loveless Cafe: don't miss this place

    by Gloriann Updated Oct 11, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This old historic cafe is located at the beginning of the Natchez Trace in Nashville. This place was someone's home at one time. The people who lived there began to seve travelers out of their front room at first, but now the entire place is a restaurant. The food is delicious!

    Traihead Restaurant: Italian Steakhouse in peaceful Townsend

    by Ky_Happy_Dad Written Aug 13, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Anyone who has stayed in Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg knows they are crowded. An alternative for those seeking more peace and quiet is to stay in Townsend, which is very convenient to visit the Cades Cove area of the Great Smokey Mountain National Park. There are not a huge selection of places to eat. This small family owned italian steakhouse was a real surprise. The steaks and italian food were good. The blueberry cheese cake was great and large enough to share. The only small anoynance was an added fee of $5 for an extra plate to share a dish with my boys.

    Favorite Dish: Save room for desert. We had the cheese cake and it was great.

    Lefty's Bar-B-Q Restaurant: For Mouth-Watering Sandwiches in Tennessee

    by deecat Updated May 29, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I just received news from two sources telling me that Lefty (Carl) died this May, 2005. It so saddened me.

    If you are like Allan and I and love Barbeque, then you would love eating at a small local restaurant in Crossville, Tennessee, called Lefty's Bar-B-Q Restaurant. It's a very informal place with wooden tables, checkered curtains, and very friendly waitresses.

    While staying in Tennessee near Crossville with Allan's sister and brother-in-law, we often frequented this small jewel of a barbeque "mecca". All the locals seemed to gravitate here (which was a good sign), so we decided to try it out. Oh, Lordy, what wonderful barbeque we indulged in!

    Favorite Dish: Our favorite was always the pulled pork either in sandwiches or piled high on a plate. It was always accompanied with crisp french fries and cold slaw.

    I don't know what kind of sauce they used, but it was so incredibly good. The pork was just as I like it...lean, lean, and more lean.

    Of course, they had ribs, chicken, and beef...all barbequed.

    They also had great homemade desserts that we sometimes ordered (that is if we could eat another bite of food after all that barbeque!)

    If you are ever in or near Crossville, Tennessee, then, by all means, stop in at Lefty's Bar-B-Q Restaurant for one of the best meals ever.

    The Farmhouse Family Restaurant: Hungry Folks Flock Here from Far and Near

    by Stephen-KarenConn Updated Oct 26, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When Bill and Diane White started the Farmhouse Family Restaurant in the small town of Etowah, Tennessee, many people thought they would never succeed. The town was just too small. But not only has the restaurant been a success, they've had to knock out the walls and make it larger. People drive for fifty miles just to enjoy one of their delicious home-cooked meals. The reason is that the food is unusually good and the prices are uncommonly low for the quality of the food and the size of the portions.

    Favorite Dish: Try one of the daily specials with a choice of a meat and two vegetables. The turkey with cornbread dressing and country fried steak are my favorites. Save room for the homemade pies or an apple dumpling for dessert.

    Market Steet Brewery & Public House: Southern Style Cooking

    by Bwana_Brown Updated Jul 15, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Having flown in via Toronto earlier in the day (without lunch being served), we were getting quite hungry by the time we had gone through the formalities and checked in. The first order of business was to stroll downtown (the action area was only a few blocks from our hotel) to find ourselves a good meal. We were not long stumbling onto the Market Street Brewery & Public House - an establishment that has its own microbrewery as well as great food. It is located in one of the many old buildings along 2nd street (built in the 1870s) whose original purpose was to receive goods from the Cumberland River boats at their back end (on 1st Street) and then sell it at the other end (on 2nd Street). We had a great meal of BBQ baby back pork ribs washed down with a glass of Tugboat Pale Ale!

    Favorite Dish: Another great restaurant that we went to a couple of times was the Big River Grill located on the corner of 2nd and Broadway. We really enjoyed their outdoor corner seating (open air sides but located beneath floors above) as the breezes blew through on those balmy days. This was another microbrewery and we had excellent meals there of Cajun Catfish and Chicken Fajitas!
