Picture it- you just booked a week at an awesome cabin in Wears Valley, Tennessee for your summer vacation. You are already planning to chill on the deck with a glass of pinot grigio while the kids play pool. Maybe you have even researched some hiking trails to enjoy. Yet, for even the most seasoned traveler, there is one age-old question that always evades our best efforts at vacation planning: “What restaurant should we try today?” Well, we here at Accommodations by Great Cabins in the Smokies have got you covered with our staff’s guide to the top 3 restaurants in Wears Valley, Tennessee.
The first restaurant on our list is definitely a staff favorite. In addition to serving delicious food, they are also committed to the local community. The menu at Elvira’s Café centers around locally-sourced ingredients and contemporary takes on mountain cooking. Expect quality ingredients, excellent customer service, and lots of locals.
Next on our list of the top restaurants in Wears Valley, Hillbilly’s Restaurant provides country cooking at its finest. Fluffy biscuits and solid portion sizes make this *the* breakfast spot in Wears Valley. After you bring the family down for a hefty brunch, you will have plenty of fuel to power your visit to Townsend or Gatlinburg.
Geppetto’s Italian Restaurant
The final restaurant in our top 3 countdown is Geppetto’s Italian Restaurant. Although they specialize in non-mountain cooking, they are the perfect choice for when you want something that reminds you of home. Their eggplant Parmesan sandwich is killer. Likewise, you absolutely must try one of their chocolate cannoli. (Might I also suggest buying a few to go? Practicing self-love on vacation is important, y’know.)
So, whether you are in the mood for down-home cooking or a scrumptious plate of spaghetti, Wears Valley has some great restaurants for you to try during your stay. If you have not booked your getaway yet, check out our cabin specials, and reserve your cabin today!
