Amazingly creative food in TN? YES! Hidden in a State Park / lake-house area called Rock Island, TN is an eccentric little restaurant with a view you must experience for yourself. At around 20$ a plate, bring your own bottle of wine to save $...More

We tried to visit Foglight in 2014 but we were early and 100 miles from home and decided to try another time. On 8/22, our 46th anniversary, we took the day and drove through some beautiful parts of Tenn. with Foglight as our final destination....More

The atmosphere and the food are both great. I have visited a couple of times with my husband and family and I would highly recommend you give it a try.

Going on a Wed. evening, we called first to make sure it was open. Very few diners there and very quick service. We hesitated to sit outside because of cigarette smoke, but after being seated inside, we saw signs outside saying it's a smoke-free restaurant!...More

Much like the other reviewers, we loved the good but disliked the wait. We have since started visiting and having a beer on the patio which makes the wait much easier....

There food in mostly Cajun style, which is delicious! For an appetizer we always enjoy the fried pickle, it is HUGE and may be shared with your quests. The setting is rustic in nature. A great place to eat with no reservations required.

Our favorite restaurant in Tennessee. Excellent food and friendly service. Unique setting for a restaurant. Try to sit on their deck for a great view of the Caney Fork River.

My husband and I traveled from Athens, Georgia just to visit this restaurant. We came on a Saturday and arrived around 6:45. We ended up having to wait for fourth-five minutes so needless to say my husband was anxious to eat. We were seated outside...More

Foglight Foodhouse is a great little treat in rural Tennessee. The menu is enticing and I recommend the Chicken Louie and the Chalad. Whatever you have start with the mushrooms. They are divine. The setting is perfect for a romantic dinner or a quiet family...More
