A group of us ladies went for lunch one day and, of course, a variety of food was ordered. Everyone said how tasty and delicious theirs was. Mine was a salad bar and everything was fresh and appetizing. Their tea was also delicious and they don't mind making you a to-go glass. You will enjou your visit.

The food is great. Service is quick and the staff constantly checks on you, and is very friendly. The price is comparable to any of the restaurants in the same grouping.

The food is wonderful and a great value for the price. We will definitely go back here. It's one of the better restaurants we've eaten at in Pigeon Forge.

The BBQ ribs were excellent. The meat fell off the bones. Our service was great. Would definitely return for more of those mouthwatering ribs.

Our latest trip to Bennett's was, once again, great. My wife and I ordered the Carolina Pork Sandwich with sides. The sandwich includes an ample pile of mouth-watering pork. The house sauces add a great taste from sweet to hot. Service is great, a friendly staff and reasonable prices. Great place to eat.

Bennett's is a great place to eat. The food is good and the service is always exceptional. We always eat at least once when we are in Gatlinburg. It is just a good place to eat.
