Best restaurant in Townsend, TN. Not the prettiest, but the tastiest. I ordered a fried chicken sandwich and had to take half of it back to the hotel. It was BIG! My husband had homecooked vegetables and the portions were very large. Food and service were outstanding.

We ate a delicious breakfast here. The atmosphere was cozy and there was a roaring fire in the fireplace on a cold morning. We were greeted immediately after we entered the restaurant and Daryl seated us and quickly took our drink orders. He was friendly and efficient! The food was great! Pancakes were huge and fluffy. The western omelet was... More

After a long, tiring day this place was just right to pop into and grab a very good meal. I was part of a crowd of 10 and we got a varied menu with excellent service. The food was hot at presentation, tasty and cooked properly. It is casual and comfortable.

Wasn't very impressed at all. Biscuits tasted like the pre-made frozen Biscuits, the pan cakes were nothing special. Dissatisfied and disappointed.

Wonderful home style cooking. The portions are so large my husband and I should have shared dinner! I tried the open faced roast beef. The mashed potatoes and brown gravy were great.

We enjoyed breakfast on December 30, 2016. Yummy grits and biscuits and gravy, but the stack of pancakes were the talk of the table. The huge, tall stack of fluffy pancakes were delicious.

Stayed next door at the Riverstone the end of October. Had breakfast and dinner at the Riverstone most every day. Loved being able to call ahead and order bacon, egg and cheese biscuits for a "to go" breakfast. WONDERFUL! Best burgers ever!!! It's hard to beat the convenience and discount when staying at the hotel next door. I have no... More

The Riverstone Family Restaurant was originally opened and owned by Terry & Belinda Haley in 2004 and gave it its name and the reputation of having the very best food anywhere around. We share the same Rep at the Riverstone Lodge right next door.We truly do have the best of quality of food anywhere. We are from Mississippi and really, really know how to cook real southern food with many years exp. We are open year round 7 days a week serving breakfst, lunch & dinner.We have been licensed as a CERTIFIED ANGUS RESTAURANT serving only certified angus beef for all fresh beef items on menu. If your not aware, certified angus is now said to be better than "PRIME".Nothing but the best. Even our hamburgers are fresh Certified Angus. Hope to see you soon!
