Reviewed yesterday NEW

but just a few! Family style cooking with country fare It's a decent restaurant and moderately priced. The portions are generous and you'll probably order too much.

They serve country cooking, along with the samples of Bush's Baked Beans. There is a store and museum there where you can learn about the making of the Baked Beans and the family that started all of the Bush Brothers & Company.

Great food and great service!!! They have lots of dessert options but we were too full from lunch to get any. But we'll sure get some next trip down!

The Bush's Cafe is not on the main tourist strip. It is several miles away but worth the scenic mountain view drive. They serve home cooked food - nothing fancy. And the free interactive museum located next door is a fun activity when you're done eating.

We stopped by Bush's to experience the museum, but also wanted to eat at their restaurant. We timed our trip from Pigeon Forge out to be there for lunch time. The cafe was full, but not overly crowded. We were sat right away and had great service. Our server brought us a sample of the beans for the day. After... More

Food was a little pricey but worth it. You can't hardly eat all the chicken tenders there is so much. Excellent food and service.
