My wife and I were in Bryson City for a couple of weeks and stopped in for lunch. Service was excellent and burgers were very good. We will be back in Bryson City for 3 weeks in June and will have lunch here again.

Large selection of food, affordable prices. The wait staff did a great job to accommodate a party of five. We arrived at a shift change and the ladies on duty did an awesome job meeting our varied needs.
