Looking for an afternoon drive and meal in East Tennessee. Searched trusty TripAdvisor and I wasn't disappointed in what I found. #1 in nearby Newport was the Grill 73. Russian food, never had this before so why not go give them a try. My husband had the special of the day "beef stroganoff" while I tried the cabbage rolls. We... More

Traveling through on our way back to Texas. Pulled up Trip Advisor and again was not disappointed. My first experience with Russian food. We had the potato pie and cabbage rolls Very good. The crepes were wonderful. Service was great and staff very friendly. Highly recommended.

This was our first time there and we were not disappointed. All of us had tasty organic tea, which we all loved. Hubby and I had the special of two beef patties (reminded me somewhat of a heavenly meat loaf without the ketchup topping) with mashed potatoes, Cole slaw and a very tasty thin bread. A cheesy white sauce was... More

I had the borch. It was really good! The Pirochke and chicken sauté were also excellent. It was the best sweet tea I've ever had! Give it a try. U can get the regular stuff anyway!

We always enjoy the meals at Grill 73, Service and cleanliness is very good. Sometimes restaurants that advertise ethnic foods do not live up to this, but not at Grill 73.

We walked into this Russian restaurant and seen a plastic window. In my mind it thought "a fast food place". Boy was I wrong!! We walked into the back, sat down and looked at the menu. Asked for ice tea and was brought something I never expected. A flavorful glass of liquid that snapped me into reality. We, the 3... More

Took my husband out for a luncheon date to this place. It was his first time there and my second time. In an area where barbecue is a staple meal, it's nice to find something different. The food was tasty and reasonably priced. Will be back there again.

We were pleasantly surprised...trip advisor never fails! This was a GREAT EXPERIENCE! Food was amazing and owners were very personable and accomodating! The cabbage rolls and the pork/pasta were delicious! And you must wash it down with the organic iced tea! Hometown cooking at its best!

Less than 10 mins off interstate 40. One of the best home cooked meals you will ever eat. One of America's hidden gems. Get the Russian dishes, they will NOT disappoint. Fantastic place with fantastic owners living the American dream.

When the owner/chef came to our table to let us know what she had made for today's special, there was excitement in her voice to share it with us. When the food did arrive it was a real treat! We joined the clean plate club! I would highly recommend this restaurant.
