“Great Ambiance, Good Food, Bad Service”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

The restaurant is on the second floor in a building on the main street in Gatlinburg. It is a great environment. We loved the chips and salsa. Our food was fresh and tasty (though we had some pretty bad indigestion the rest of the day). That aside, the worst part about it was the lack of service. It took a little while for our server to take our drink order when we first got there. When our food arrived, one of the dishes was wrong. (That is easy to overlook.) Our waiter took his time to come back and check on us. We asked for a refill of water for our son. He didn't come back with it. Then when he finally returned, he did not bring a drink. We had to ask AGAIN for some water. The waiter brought our bill and took about 10 minutes to collect our payment. I would not eat there again if he were my waiter.

The tables on either side of us appeared to be receiving good service from their waitresses.

“Loved the balcony seating and food was tasty!”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

We sat out on the balcony which was fun to watch the crowds go by on the street. They is also plenty of table inside as well as a rooftop area. We ordered 3 appetizers and had that as our dinner. We had the stuffed jalapenos, a chicken quesadilla and a chile relleno. We thoroughly enjoyed the food and we both left stuffed. We have been to this restaurant before and will return next time we are in town...

“Shelly is one of the best bartenders every.”
Reviewed 2 July 2014 via mobile

Food is good BUT the bartender made margarita's using fresh fruit and no mix all made right on the spot. She's the bomb ( Go & see Shelly ) ask for her. Check and try it out for yourself. We had a great time.
