This was ok but ultimately underwhelming. I had the French onion soup and Cobb salad. Both were good, but it was not the best French onion soup I’ve ever had, as other reviews stated. My children split the salmon, which is what I would recommend...More

Ate here twice as it seemed to be the best option in Maggie Valley. Good food, service was much better the second time as on the first visit the server was flustered.

My husband had their prime rib, he said it was ok, I had the trout, it was a bit overcooked. We both enjoyed our salads with gorgonzola and blue cheese dressing, and awesome fried green tomato's. It was a bit pricey, but it was ok.

Called themselves a steak house. Limited items. Chicken fingers was obviously not home made. Small portion of food given for a high price. Meatloaf was the star of the show on top of small amount of mashed potatoes.

Serving Maggie Valley for 32 years, our family has been in the restaurant business since 1935 with over 20 restaurants (Manero's) both on the East coast and in south Florida. We are know for our succulent prime rib, steaks, Gorgonzola cheese salad as well as our French onion soup and homemade cheese sticks. We are a casual upscale steakhouse which also serves a variety of seafood, chicken, pork, pasta, salads and well as burgers and a variety of incredible appetizers. We have a full bar and serve dinner both in our lounge as well as our dining room. We also have a loft which seats 55 and a private banquet room which seats 25. In the summer and fall, we serve on our patio on weekends. We cater to groups of all sizes both at our establishment and in local parks, homes and a variety of settings and have done groups up to 1300. We love to serve families and have a kids section for children as well as two functioning trains which delight the young at heart in our dining room.
