Food was very good. We each had a burger-done perfectly. Service was a bit slow, however they were very busy.

We had breakfast on Wednesday, 10/19/16 before taking the train ride. The place seemed to have a mix of locals and tourists waiting on the train.

In downtown Bryson City, NC, I found the food to be very good and worth the price. Had a friendly staff and good prices. A nice restaurant for a quick, inexpensive meal.

Good home cooking. The service was good. Nothing fancy. A mom and pops style restaurant. Located off Main Street within walking distance of all shops.
