This is the place to come for a wonderful dining experience in our mountains. The food is very well-prepared, the atmosphere is excellent, and the service is very cordial.

This was our first visit to Cataloochee and will definitely not be our last. Waking to the magnificent Smoky Mountain view each morning would have been enough but add to that the staff and facilities at Cataloochee Ranch made this the perfect getaway! We stayed in the Spruce Room in Silverbell Lodge. Clean, very comfortable. In-room TV (never watched television... More

Had their BBQ dinner out on the deck with spectacular views. Food was served buffet style. We did manage to eat inside as it started to get chilly. We have been there before and listened to the lecture around a fire, from the wolf man. He actually brought one of his tame wolves for us to see! Very cool. Worth... More

We went for the Friday evening dinner and entertainment for less than $40 per person. Terrific meal of ribs and chicken with tasty vegetables and decadent desserts. Atmosphere cannot be beat and the program around the campfire about wolves (with a wolf there) was facinating

Awesome music with the greatest bluegrass band, and the dinner was spectacular. The complete staff made us feel at home, and we'll be back soon. Thanks Cataloochie Ranch!!

Come early to enjoy the views and stay late for the entertainment - but the food is the focal point... looking forward to my next visit.

We were really impressed with the beautiful grounds, good food prepared simply and excellent wine selection. We were especially impressed with the homemade jellies for slathering on your dinner rolls. This isn't a place to come for a quick bite, it is a place to spend a memorable evening with friends, eating, drinking and sitting around the camp fire listening... More
