Great service and good food! We were very hungry after rafting and found this quaint little spot next to the river! The food was spectacular!

The good was tasty and the service was great. The main issue with this location was that they were down a fryer and they ran out of some foods. There vegetarian chili was a 10 however and I would eat it again anytime. The service was also a 10.

My brother and I stopped to eat here before zipping, and it was a wonderful place to eat outside and listen to the river. The food was also great!

I went rafting with Smoky Mountain Outdoors and was famished after the trip. We drove half a mile down the road to the Bean Trees. It was amazing. They have a laid back atmosphere and quick service. The drunken burger was to die for and the fried pickles were amazing. Definitely a must see after rafting!

Cute little cafe/pub/restaurant especially after a day on the water. The burgers and fries were super tasty and the staff is friendly and accommodating. There is an outside patio just above the river. They also have special events on some weekdays or weekends. It seems like a popular local hangout as well. Great walking distance after the rafting.

The bean trees was reccomended to me by my raft guide. Loved the outdoor deck overlooking the river, and seeing the friendliness of everyone there. I had the Salmon Club with hummus and chips and it was delicious. My server, Stephanie, was fantastic. Will definitely be back!

Wonderful service. Loved the eclectic atmosphere. The menu was extensive & everything was delish! The outside dining area was very nice overlooking the river. Everything is homemade & wait for food delivery was completely reasonable. A must try!

Disclaimer- did not have time to try the food. Stopped at this exit for a quick bathroom break and am sad I didn't have more time to stick around. The staff was friendly and the atmosphere relaxed. Great coffee - organic, fair-trade, and ground on demand. I plan to stop again the next time I pass through. Loved it!
