I remember a buffet that was pretty decent. I think it had the word "American" and/or "Steak" in its name. It was right near the Motel 6 on the main tourist trap strip leading to Dollywood. Sorry I can't be more specific, but I'm old and the memory ain't what it used to be, Karly.

By all means, eat at Dollywood. The food in the park is actually very good, and not outrageously priced.

Go see the Old Mill Square! The cluster of stores and restaurants around and in it are great! My family preferred the Pottery House Cafe and Grill. For more info on it, go to oldmillsquare.com

The Applebarn is a must for breakfast! We make it a point to eat there each vacation. I haven't eaten at Damon's in a couple of years, but they once were a great place to enjoy a steak.

I agree with the Applebarn. Breakfast is really good there and dinner is pretty good too.

If you want to walk away with your pants requiring to be unbuckled, go the the Old Mill for sure. The main restaurant is pretty great. You order an entree, which are HUGE. You start off with corn chowder and then sides are served family style and all you can eat with your entree. Then, you get to choose a dessert. It is great southern comfort food.

At Dollywood,Ms. Lillian's Chicken Restaurant is the place to go. It's a modest buffet, and the food is good by all means, but Miss Lillian is the reason to go. She is hilarious and has wished me a Happy Birthday a few times in some unique ways...lol
