We took our family to the ranch and they are still talking about how much they enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. The best view while dining in Maggie Valley. We will be back next year and thanks for helping us make great memories.

Call for reservations as the dinner seating is limited. They serve family style and our meal was so good. Ask what they are serving when you make reservations. Arrive early..the views are amazing. Take a jacket. The high elevation cools off in the evening.

I know it is convenient but the exorbitant price for the food was outrageous. We only ate their once & drove to town for the rest. Ridiculous. $30 for beef stew or chicken pot pie?

Beautiful ride up the mountains to get to the restaurant. What a view. Very casual dinning. We were there for lunch. I had the soup and half a sandwich. The soup was homemade vegetable and delicious. We will go again

I must say, I visited this farm as a child and my mother and family had come up here for years during their childhoods. After 25 years away, it felt magical to return to such a memorable place. Unfortunately, I will not return here again....More
