Delicious lunch buffet. Staff were very friendly. Brought out hot chicken and fish continously. We were here at 230 in the afternoon and the food was hot and delicious. Would definitely recommend this restaurant!

We stopped in after some miles in the AT. As the reviews reflect, its pretty good food overall. Pretty straight forward American fare. Chicken, okra, mashed potatoes, mac and cheese etc. The salad bar is fresh and very good. Service is good and staff is extremely friendly. The place is clean and there were a good deal of local people... More

Great salad bar (fresh, well stocked and clean), nice selection of meats (included fried chicken, baked ham and a couple others). Veggies were mashed potatoes, fried corn, green beans,... More

Every time me and my husband come to Cherokee we come to Newfound for the amazing buffet and (usually) friendly costumer service. However this time we were highly disappointed. Food was fine, but our waitress was absolutely horrible. I would have rated my visit a five had it not been for the poor service. She had a rude demeanor and... More
