I really didn't want to eat at the cafe because I figured it would be overpriced and just snack foods. Boy was I wrong. Very good menu and good southern cooking. Everyone gets free baked beans too. Really glad we ate there.

We love to go to the Bush's cafe whenever we can get up the road from Sevierville to Chestnut Hill during the hours that they are open. Great selection of both sandwiches and entrees. The catfish is the best! Lucious desserts, especially the apple pie. They make milkshakes by hand-scooping out real ice cream. We wish they were open at... More

We visited the cafe at lunch time. We had their beans and corn bread and chili pot and corn bread. We enjoyed both dishes and then topped it with a shared piece of pinto bean pie. Delish! Service was friendly and prompt. Whole atmosphere was simple, but warm and welcoming. They did have a varied menu and their special of... More

The restaurant is very clean and wait staff is great. The food is very very good. Don't forget to tour museum and General Store. I found things in the General Store that brought back wonderful childhood memories.

We had a late lunch there and everything was as fresh as could be. The food was not cold or had not been sitting under a heat lamp. Very enjoyable.

We visit Dandridge every year. And, every year, we go to the Bush's Bean museum. This was our second time eating at the café, and it was tasty once again. They serve beans of course, and the BBQ pulled pork is good, too. It's a nice, quaint little café after you've spend the morning at the museum and shop. Not... More
