After suffering through a day and a half of what's amounts to the dining purgatory that is Fall Creek Falls state park, we decided we would venture out in search of something better. And we found it at Foglight Foodhouse. The location (and water views from the dining room ) was great. Ambiance was sociable to borderline romantic with hushed... More

We both had the Monterey Chicken. I love the smoked tomato jam that makes this dish so delicious! We finished our dinner with King Cake Cheesecake. Love coming here - it is always perfect. Great food and wonderful service right on the river!

We only eat at local places when we're on vacation. We always hope to find a quaint little place with amazing food, great atmosphere, and decent prices. On a recent hiking trip to middle Tennessee, our campground manager recommended the Foglight Foodhouse so we decided to try it out. Who knew we would find the restaurant of our dreams? This... More

If you don't mind veering off the beaten path just a bit and want some really, really good food, try the Foglight Foodhouse in Rock Island, TN. The setting is gorgeous, back in the woods and right on the water. It is casual and rustic, but the food anything but ordinary. Everything is fresh, high quality and delicious. We highly... More

Hubby and I recently ate at Foglight Foodhouse on a week night. It was not crowded at all. We had a lovely table overlooking the water. The view of the river was nice and the outdoor twinkle lights were a nice touch. The service was good and the restaurant was nice and clean. The food, however, was just average. I... More

Thank you for taking the time to review my restaurant. While I have to disagree with your opinion of "average," I will say that your selections were two mainstream entrees placed on the menu to satisfy the less-daring diner, but happen to be two of our best-sellers. I invite you to come again soon and sample some of our more... More

We ate here for our 25th wedding anniversary while staying at a cabin nearby. We had a great view of the Caney Fork River while enjoying incredible food. The service was very good also. I got the filet; it was the best restaurant filet I have ever had, perfectly cooked and seasoned. The green beans also were great, I would... More

We stopped in on a trip through the area. This is a bit off the main road, but very much worth the drive. The deck seating overlooks the water and is lovely. The pretzel appetizer was delicious. I had the bisque and found it very salty and couldn't eat it. I did tell the waiter but we were still charged... More

Thank you for taking the time to review my restaurant, and for the kind words. I'm disappointed you found the bisque to be salty- it was addressed the moment I read your review, and will not be a problem in the future. I'm even more concerned about your assessment of the service. I strive for excellence, and this, too, will... More

Loved that you had to "get lost to find it". We sat outside overlooking a stream (?). It was so dark out there that we didn't know if we were seeing a lake or a stream or what! A great place IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE! I loved it. Cajun plate was divine and my salad with grilled shrimp was... More
