Featured in Southern Living Magazine, this restaurant "serves the flavor of the Smokies" with its varied menu of traditional favorites and Smoky Mountain specialties including moonshine chicken, rainbow trout, barbecue ribs, and homemade desserts. They are open nightly for dinner.
We had been to a sister restaurant before and it was excellent, so we decided to try this one out. The salad bar was excellent. The downside came when the first steak came and it was well beyond done. The second replacement steak had a off flavor and was sent back. The kitchen agreed with us. Then we switched to a salmon instead. The salmon came out still swimming on my plate. Never had I sushi and cooked fish at the same time. When your expecting a $40 dollar steak and get to uncooked fish, it ruins your experience. They did comp the fish at least and the staff was courteous.
Very disappointed ever since they added the salad bar it seemed the quality just went down. If I'm going to spend $100 or more on dinner I want everything served to me. I don't want to serve myself from a Buffet salad bar were germs are more easily transmitted. I'd rather have a few hands touch my food then several hundred hands. Every year since opening of restaurant except the past 2 or 3 years my husband and I visited for our anniversay and really looked forward to going as the atmosphere was so nice especially in the winter when the fireplaces were going. There seemed to be more to choose from on the menu and the prices were not as high.
The prices are to high for the quality and serving of food and not enough variety.
Menu needs to be changed/added to and the prices dropped.
The quality of food is just not worth the long wait. It seems the Park Grill is just another tourist destinations only. Meaning,visit once and not return. Way too many really great restaurants in the area than to go to one that has become a low quality high priced tourist destination.
The portions were terrible. I ordered the Hawg Wild, and received 2 meat-deprived ribs. (I guess that hog was so wild, that when they finally caught him, he was thin).
We left almost 70 dollars poorer, and still hungry. We ended up grabbing a bite to eat from someplace else.
The salad bar was continuously pushed by our waiter. He kept telling us to help ourselves to the salad bar, and that he'd be back to take our order. Now I know why: they want you to fill up on salad, so you're not starving when they bring you your meal.
My advice: eat before you come.
However, if you've recently had that gastric bypass surgery, and your stomach is now the size of a dime....this is the place for you.
Been there twice: October, 2005 and October, 2006. Both experiences were wonderful. The 12-ounce chop steak was one of the best I have ever had. There is a dessert... ice cream, brownie, hot fudge sauce, and a cinnamon paw print on top - twice the size it should be, but it is out of this world! But go early; they close the doors at 9 p.m.
My family and I went on vacation to Gatlinburg and thought that this would be a nice place to have dinner. It looks excellent from the outside. When we arrived we were there 10 minutes before it opened and still ended up on the waiting list. Then we were seated and we gave the waitress our orders. When we recieved the steaks, they were not cooked like we asked. So, we sent them back to be cooked longer. When they were brought back, they were still not ''well done''. For the four of us, it was just over $100. And for the quality of the food, the price was way too much. Overall, this restaurant was deffinently a disappointment and we will not go back and I do not reccomend it to anyone. (Right next door to the right there is another restaurant where we ate in the past, and it was wonderful.)
My husband and I ate at The Park Grill while on our honeymoon. This November will be our 6 year Ann. and We still tell our friends about it!!We visit every time we are in Gatlinburg and recommend it to everyone!!Great food and LOVE the service!
I thoroughly enjoyed both times that I have dined at the Park Grill. We went in late fall, and they had lovely fires burning. The atmosphere was warm and inviting, as well. The service has always been delightful, and the meals were delicious. It may seem a little price-y, but you get a lot of food for your money. I highly recommend it.
During our more recent visits, my family has made it a habit of eating dinner at the Park Grill. I can't offer much insight into their entrees, as we only ordered them once (and as I recall, mine wasn't that great), but I do remember that they're a bit on the pricy side. We usually just get their salad bar (8-10 dollars to eat at the most awesome salad bar in Gatlinburg... can't beat it!), and I always get a serving (or two...) of their garlic mashed potatoes, which are simply to die for. I would definitely recommend those. Service is great, and the atmosphere is okay (very cool log cabin-type setting), but because it's popular in the big tourist months, noise level of the place when it's crowded can get to you. That's just a small thing, though. In general, I would recommend the Park Grill to anyone who would like to try a new restaurant when they visit Gatlinburg. I'm sure you'd enjoy it.
My 2 friends and I had a terrific time at this restaurant. The food was delicious - amongst us we had the Rainbow Trout, Pecan crusted chicken and Filet. Each was outstanding and the sides were great. Our waiter was personable, prompt and accommodating. There was a piano player there that made the whole experience extral special. We loved our experience and would recommend it to anyone!
