Decided to try breakfast here, since we were out doing some errands..Not much of a crowd, so we were seated right away..After placing our order, most of the other patrons had left, which made it hard to believe that our order seemed to take forever to get to the table.. I had ordered 3 pieces of French toast with a... More

The daily buffet with well-seasoned veggies and hearty meat dishes make this one of our favorite places to eat in Newport. Good menu items are offered as well.

Friday night "Peel & Eat Shrimp" is my favorite! Generous amount and flavorful. Comes with two sides and choice of hush puppies, rolls, corn bread, or Texas toast. Could do this every week.

Great service, all employees seem very friendly and attentive. My date had the meatloaf, which was delicious. I had a bbq sampler, which left a lot of desire for... More

We stopped on our drive home from Christmas break. Based on TripAdvisor reviews, we chose Lisa's. For us, it was an excellent choice! The kids all got something they like. Parents were happy, too. We were happy to hear AirOne being played, too!

I love coming to eat at Lisa's. The waitresses are nice and the food is so delicious. It is always nice to support a local business and Lisa is a delightful person. She makes sure that everything is great each time we visit. I love the pork chops, biscuits, and ham. The cobbler is fabulous too if you come in... More

My husband and I are from out of town, and stopped in here for breakfast after taking a drive to see Cherokee Lake. We were pleasantly surprised to find a nice little "mom & pop" restaurant that was clean, had great food, and had good prices. My husband and I love the Pancake Pantry in Gatlinburg, and for years we... More

They have the BEST Double Hamburgers in the area. Pre-cooked weight is one pound total, finished weight is Pricelessly Great Tasting. You have to get it with Lisa's Chips (homemade potato chips with dipping sauce). These are equally as good. Our office will order from Lisa's about every other month. Can't wait till next order. They serve home cooked meals,... More

There are limited dining options in Jefferson City, but Lisa's came highly recommended. There's nothing fancy about this place, but the food is basic and good. Some in our party had strict dietary restrictions and our waitress cheerfully answered all questions, even asking for clarification on fine points from the kitchen. Everyone at our table was happy with their choice.... More

We ate dinner twice because we enjoyed the meal so much when we were staying at Exit 417 in Dandridge and visited my sister in Jefferson City. Breakfast anytime and had good country cooking.
