Buckhorn Inn Receives “Best Meal” Praise

Dinner at Buckhorn Inn was honored to be named a “best meal” of 2023 by The Grub Scout.  The Grub Scout writes a regular column in the Knoxville News Sentinel.  http://Www.knoxnews.com  The Scout wrapped up the year by recapping some of his/her favorite restaurant outings.  In the December 29 issue, he/she identified the 10 eateries that impressed him/her the most out of the more than 60 restaurants, food trucks, and other vendors he/she visited and reviewed in the previous 12 months.  Here is the Buckhorn Inn review of the meal Chef Frank prepared as it appeared.

Buckhorn Inn

Although I lived in Sevier County for 10 years at one point in my life, I had never been to Buckhorn Inn until The Grub Spouse and I received a gift certificate to the Gatlinburg bed and breakfast.  While there, we sat down to a dinner that turned out to be one of the highlights of our wedding anniversary celebration.  The meal was served at a fixed price of $40 per person, and considering the food itself—five onion soup, rack of pork topped with peach barbecue sauce, duchess potato casserole, steamed broccoli, and a brown-butter almond torte with brandied cherries—not to mention the daytime views of Mount LeConte, adding Buckhorn Inn to be a Favorite 10 (you don’t have to be a guest to dine there) was a no-brainer.


Brown-butter almond torte is a delightful way to end a “best meal”.
