We have been to this restaurant every time we are in Gatlinburg. The service is excellent- friendly, knowledgeable, helpful and courteous. And the food- it is always perfect! The salad bar is huge with lots of items from which to choose! We wouldn't think of not eating here at least once while in town.

Some combination of the time, weather and the number of cars in the parking lot, we stopped in for lunch and glad we did. I am particular at lunchtime and usually favor salads and something lighter.The salad bar was amazing! 2 different kinds of greens and then every additive you wanted. I like the cherry tomatoes, much cleaner than sliced... More

This has to be one of the best restaurants in Gatlinburg! The salad bar was very fresh and full of options, oysters were a pleasant surprise on the bar as well! The service was 2nd to none, we were never left unattended despite how busy they were. I did rage advantage of the call ahead seating and wasn't disappointed when... More

The Park Grill wasn't our first choice to eat the night we were in Gatlinburg. We wanted to eat at The Peddler but the wait was 2.5 hours for two people. The manager on duty at The Peddler told me that The Park Grill was on the Parkway and owned by the same people as The Peddler AND offered basically... More

Very good barbeque & fried onion rings and the Cole slaw was also very tasty. Servers were courteous, knoqledgeable and prompt. Very nice and pleasant place -- a little less of a tourist haunt than others

Although the server could have been a little more present, we had a very good dinner. Everyone there was friendly, and the other servers stepped up. We had a hamburger and the salad bar, which both were very good. This is the second time we have been, and would certainly go back in the future.

This is a Gatlinburg Classic. If you've ever enjoyed eating in a high concept Disney restaurant, you'll be comfortable in this place. Mile long salad bar, well apportioned bar, great food! There's an audio surprise for you in the bathroom, even. :-) (No Spoilers!)

Due to the big crowds at restaurants for Valentines Day lunch and dinner we decided to go early to Gatlinburg, spend the night and eat dinner. Our choice for dinner, The Park Grill, was perfect. The building itself is unique and beautiful and fits in perfectly, rustic both inside and out. The atmosphere is very good. First you can enjoy... More

Beautiful building, great atmosphere, good food. We were in Gatlinburg to tour the national Park. We ate at the park grill two times in two days. The service was quick for lunch. The food was good and we really liked the atmosphere and the location was great. We also liked the music.

This is a beautiful building, log beams and rustic. The service was great, Kathy, my server, was such a sweetheart. I tried the hamburger, onion rings and Brown Bear Blast for dessert. Love the paw print on the dessert (see picture). All were really good and worth a try if you're ever in Gatlinburg.

Thank jmitche3
