This restaurant had a very good selection of both hot and cold sandwiches. The service was excellent and the got special needs right the first time. My only complaint was that the fried pickles and french fries were over cooked. The sandwiches were excellent.

We always stay in Bryson City when we are heading to Harrahs Casino. The hotel we stay in doesn’t offer breakfast so we found this great restaurant. The food and coffee is always hot and the service is amazing. Love the omelettes and hash browns.Thank you for the wonderful comments and review. We appreciate that you took the time to post and that you continue to eat with us. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Cute little place for a quaint town! Ice cream was very good with reasonable prices. The only 2 issues were that they don't have a bathroom for patrons and they don't take credit cards.

Old line place. The Inn has been in operation since 1923. Kind of quirky. The floors are not quite level so walking can be an adventure.

Several 3-generation families there the night we visited. Most customers are staying there, so be sure to make a reservation.

Trout prepared 5 different ways heads the menu. Steaks, pork chops, chicken plus a nightly special.

Dinner includes soup, salad, entrees, 3 sides, dessert and coffee. All at a reasonable price, so a good value.

Full bar and a good wine menu.

Might well be the nicest place in the area. Just be prepared for a good but very traditional meal.

A group of us out for a day of motorcycle riding stopped for a late lunch. The dining room was empty but the waitress welcomed us warmly. She was friendly and outgoing. She seated us and got started on drinks and orders for 13 people.
The service was quick and accurate. Everyone was complimentary about their meals. I can personally say the catfish sandwich was very good.
The pricing was very affordable.
If you are in the area, stop by. I don't think you will be disappointed.

Loretta's Snak Shak

Reviewed By Tara G

We got lunch to-go and it was mediocre. I got a bun less burger and it was just sitting by itself with a couple of pickles in the container. There were packets of ketchup in the bag, however. I asked if the bowl of soup was enough for lunch and the server (who seemed perturbed we were ordering) said it was. When we unpacked it, we learned otherwise. It was more like a side cup. Fries were okay. Nothing special. We have a place in BC and come up multiple times a year. We will not be returning here for food. There are just too many other outstanding choices!

La Dolce Vita Bakery

Come in for made from scratch baked goods, house made gelato, and the perfect cup of house roasted coffee. We feature beans from various locations across the world and roast them to a city roast in order to showcase the flavor of their region.

Cute little bakery in downtown Bryson City. They are open in the morning but do not have much for breakfast pastry options (no donuts or danishes) but they did have muffins and cinnamon rolls. The cinnamon rolls were melt in your mouth delish! Light, fluffy and just a hint of sweet; unlike the traditional dense, overly sweet frosted cinnamon rolls. They had the best tasting coffee around. The flavor and brew was just perfect.

Delicious food, friendly service and one heck of a view! The wine and beer lists were great too -- a little bit of everything with reasonable prices. We were there around 3PM on a Sunday and it was fairly busy. I imagine it's packed in the summer, but it must be a lot of fun watching the people on the river. My husband enjoyed the chili and my kids loved the wings. And the pizza? Out of this world!
