Visiting the nearby battlefield, I stopped here afterwards and glad I did. A relaxing atmosphere, attentive staff (thank you Shelby), and good food! The food was not prepared until after I ordered it. Not a problem, it was worth the wait. I ordered a grilled chicken salad and the portion was larger than expected. Perfect! Bring on the bread sticks! Plenty of big screen TVs, clean bathrooms and a overall good experience.

This was my second visit, each time I was seeing Fort Donelson NB. I had a blizzard, as it was a warm day, it hit the spot along with the soft drink. The place looks a bit dated but the ice cream was good.

... and don't pass up Hillbilly BBQ. As a seasoned road tripper I'm always looking for a BBQ joint. Hillbilly was right down the road from Fort Donelson and convenient for this hiker and sight seer. I thought the pulled pork was as good if not better than any I've had at the star attractions across TN (the TV stars). The white beans with pork were simple and so good. Hillbilly beans are baked beans topped with pork and sauce - I did hot sauce - were killer! Since these backwood TN BBQ joints always seen to have bologna on the menu I added a slice to my dinner plate - heavenly. Great smoke ring, taste... great stuff. Understand this place isn't fancy - you'll eat at a roadside table or on the hood of the car. But it fit the bill after my 6-hour hiking around the battlefields!

Stopped in for lunch. The lunch plates looked like a good option and for the most part it was. We had the chicken, hamburger patty, corn, okra and mashed potatoes with a roll. The price was reasonable and service was excellent. The chicken, okra and mashed potatoes was very good. The patty was okay but small. The roll was bag and not very tasty. The corn was out of a can and had soured from sitting out. The décor is cute. We had a root beer float for dessert and it was good.

Friends of ours were riding their boat around and stumbled on the Leatherwood Resort and noticed the Pirates Cove Restaurant. We ate there the following weekend and it was a nice lunch especially the "Maidens Blush" cocktail!!!! We will return to try other items on the menu. We have homes in the Buchanan area and this was the perfect ride time for an outing. I understand they have bands starting at 4:00 pm. We might try and be there during that time.

We stopped here just before going to the battlefield. Thought we would get a snack. The Italian food was as good or better than many up-scale restaurants. From the outside one would expect just some pizza and beer or related items. Nope. Although the decor and atmosphere is that of a small eatery next to a National Park, forgettaboutit!
The food was freshly prepared, large helpings, very tasty, and great service.
If were are in the area again, we will stop here. Very unexpected delight.

We stopped and ate a late lunch of bbq sandwiches. The meat was stuffed between the bread. They have several bbq sauces with a really good vinegar based one. They are open Friday thru Sunday.

"They ARE what they ARE"!!
From outa town, traveling, hungry & not wanting to explore & risk, I checked out trusty Trip Advisor, found it, & settled down to eat. I've been in love with the Filet of Fish, & this Erin McD's served me a "GOODEN"!! This is a CLEAN, COURTEOUS, & convenient one. It's no SMALL thing, to find a place that CARES, & this is one of them. There were several locals & WE joined the conversation. Time for a dessert; HOT FUDGE SUNDAE, for me. (Apple pie, maybe.)

Great little road side diner. Great service and awesome food. You have to try the fired green tomatoes, fried green tomato BLT, sweet potato waffle fries, steak burger, and/or chicken burrito.
