“Visited this place with some friends on a bachelor party trip and it was amazing. Food was great, price was better, and service was the best. I’m kind of a BBQ snob because I smoke my own at home, and it took all I could not to hound the owner with questions. Absolutely the best I’ve had outside my own home (and I may begrudgingly admit inside my home too).“

“This is the place you want to know about when you are in the Smokies near Gatlinburg. It's not overrun by tourists, and you have to look for it to find it.Which is perfect.The menu is familiar, yet eclectic. Try a tater tot bowl. It is exactly what the menu describes, yet not what I pictured. Same thing with the sandwiches. There is a unique twist that made me say, "oh, that's a little different."And different is good ?.You order at the counter and then find a seat. The proprietor and the entire staff are friendly and engaging, and the place is just comfortable.There is a bar and a pour your own beer tap wall. I'll let the beer conisures review that.Overall, I am thrilled to have been introduced to Split Rail Eats.“

The wait can be long at times and if you don’t get there early, be prepared to wait outside in a long line.Our waitress this past trip was not very attentive. We had multiple tables come in after us and their wait staff took their drink and food order before ours even acknowledged us.“

“The best steakhouse in Gatlinburg and surrounding area. If you love steak or need a romantic dinner then this is the place. From tender perfectly cooked steaks to a world class salad bar it is a must. If celebrating a special occasion make sure to let them know. Oftentimes candle lit dinner options are available too. If coming in a party of 4 or less highly recommend trying to request a window seat overlooking the river.“

Fannie Farkle's Amusement American

“Hands down the best corn dogs in America period. People that are giving this place a one star for the arcade inside just need to stop, turn around, and go to a chuck e cheese if that's what they want.You don't come here for the games. You come here for the dogs. You stand in the street in front of the building, you eat it, you close your eyes and remember doing the same thing in 1988. When times were good, and everyone in Gatlinburg was from America.“

How when we got our table, our waitress, Robin made us feel at home and made our dinner experience top tier. Her great customer service felt so natural and I really appreciate that. I’ll be recommending this restaurant to my friends and I’ll made sure they ask for Robin for their waitress“

I had the salad special of the day, and it was amazing!The drink we had, the winter Seabreeze, was great. We're going to try and make it when we get home!Fried green tomatoes were great, too. We'd never had them served with mustard and prefer ranch, but they were still delicious!If you're in the area, check them out!“

A lot of food sharing was going on as well! The appetizers were spot on. Not sure how anyone could rate it lower unless it was just an off night.“

“Dinner with the family was good for the most part. Our waiter Victor was great, he was super kind and quick with his service! We ordered the vista grill salad with chicken, chicken caesar salad, the simply grilled chicken, and the chopped steak. Everything was good, except the chopped steak. It was just bland and in the menu it is made out to be very flavorful and exciting but it really wasn’t. Other than that, the rest of the food was good, fresh, and warm. It’s a nice option for when you don’t want to leave the hotel.“
