My husband, our 4 yr old son, and my brother ate at the Mountainside for dinner while staying on Old Forge last weekend. The food was great, the prices were reasonable and the service was quick. Thank you for a yummy dinner!

Definitely a place we want to return to. I had bacon corn chowder and my husband had brisket. Both were excellent! Atmosphere was very nice. Very reasonable prices. Their homemade barbecue sauces were excellent.
