Whether you're driving from Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge the Riverstone Restaurant is a must stop. You must be hungry though because portions are large and it's good old fashioned Country Cooking. Tremendous value & great variety.

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful, delicious breakfast (my omelette was 4 times more than I could eat). The service and atmosphere was great! We will come back on our next trip to the Smokies. Highly recommend!

During a recent visit, I had breakfast here every morning. The establishment is very clean, the ladies working were always friendly and welcoming, the food was always good and the prices reasonable.

The service was good however, the biscuits tasted like they were made from frozen and the gravy tasted like it came from a package. If you eat here order something else.
