Food scene

A great place to dine for a four course fondue meal, but also a great dessert spot if you just have a sweet tooth! We often go for just the chocolate fondue!

This restaurant has been in Gatlinburg for years! It's an iconic steakhouse that serves you a hand-picked (by you!) cut of steak. They also have an incredible salad bar too. Delicious!

As a breakfast option, this is the place to be! Go early! The later you go, the longer the wait! People line up outside to get a taste of their pancakes. Every kind of pancake you can imagine, but my favorite are the buckwheat! They only take cash there, but they have an ATM inside the restaurant.

This is the highest peak in the Great Smoky Mountains. It's a bit of a drive to get to it, but the path leading up to the lookout tower is paved (and steep). The views can be amazing from Clingman's Dome, but take a jacket or coat with you! The temperatures can often be 10-20 degrees cooler there than in Gatlinburg.

We recently visited Anakeesta and loved it! You ride a chair lift to the top of a mountain where you'll find neat shopping, restaurants, food trucks, a mountain roller coaster, zip lining, a treehouse, a tree canopy bridge and a beautiful flower garden. The views of Gatlinburg from Anakeesta are amazing, but if heights aren't your thing, you might want to check it out before purchasing your tickets!
