We were a party of four and were seated next to the entrance. We were served by three different waitresses and all three were very unfriendly and had no personality. They were not very engaged with us or anyone else that we could see. The prime rib was good but the potatoes were over done. The asparagus looked like it... More

the menu changes often, and the selection is usually between two primary proteins with wonderful sides. everything is home made and well done. there is only one seating at 7pm, but that means you can linger, "dine" and feel like you are the center of attention. if you are a large group, they can move you to a separate area...

I eat at the Buckhorn every time we have a family vacation in Gatlinburg. Great staff, location, and food. Always a good alternate restaurant even if you don't stay.

We stayed at the Buckhorn and breakfast was included in our stay. Every morning there was a new treat in store. Every breakfast included biscuits and some kind of pastry, then you could choose from a hearty egg dish, or a wonderful pancake or waffle treat, fresh fruit, or eggs your way. The chef came up with a new treat... More
