Always eat here when in the area. We had dinner & as always the food, service & facility were top notch. The facility is clean & neat, the staff is very friendly & welcoming, the food is fantastic. Anything on the menu is always delicious. We've been eating at Bennett's for many years & have never been dissatisfied.

The food is wonderful and a great value for the price. We will definitely go back here. It's one of the better restaurants we've eaten at in Pigeon Forge.

The BBQ ribs were excellent. The meat fell off the bones. Our service was great. Would definitely return for more of those mouthwatering ribs.

Our latest trip to Bennett's was, once again, great. My wife and I ordered the Carolina Pork Sandwich with sides. The sandwich includes an ample pile of mouth-watering pork. The house sauces add a great taste from sweet to hot. Service is great, a friendly staff and reasonable prices. Great place to eat.

Bennett's is a great place to eat. The food is good and the service is always exceptional. We always eat at least once when we are in Gatlinburg. It is just a good place to eat.

Wife and I dropped in to Bennett's for a late lunch after hiking in the mountains. We're locals, and Bennett's is our favorite BBQ place in the Smokies but today we both decided to try the catfish instead, seeing how we're both big fans of fried catfish, and we're really glad we did, we've been missing out on the best...

We typically go for lunch and get the soup and salad bar, but everything we’ve ordered from the menu was delicious. My husband especially likes their wings. We’ve made it to the breakfast buffet a few times, and it was really good. The service is always excellent. One year, my husband's money fell under the table before we left. We... More

We ended up eating breakfast here every day of our vacation. They had plenty of bacon, sausage, pancakes, fruit, biscuits and more. They made our eggs to order and everything was fresh. They have little cinnamon doughnuts on the bar that are absolutely delicious and the kids loved putting whipped cream and chocolate on their pancakes and waffles. We were... More

This is a place we make it a point to stop at every time we visit Gatlinburg. The food is plain great, and the service is just as good! We've even ate breakfast there, they have a very nice breakfast bar. The atmosphere is relaxing and is the perfect place to go over your itinerary for the day or a... More
