    Excellent Food! Great Setting!

    The Hostess greeted us with a smile and immediately made friends with Daisy and brought her water right away. The service was very good and the food was well worth the price. An upscale dining experience.

    The staff was incredible, location is just beautiful, and they all loved on my puppy. They immediately brought him out a bowl of water when getting my drink order. On top of that best old fashioned I may have ever had, and great food!!

    Great spot!

    Don’t wonder about this hidden gem, just go. We were seated outside right away and they brought Charlie a bowl of water right away. The food was amazing - one of the best restaurant meals I’ve had in a long time. Everything was so fresh. Excellent!

    Happy Dancing for the Dancing Bear Bistro

    Your foodie spirit will be completely satisfied in this picturesque mountain bistro. The manager and staff were so friendly and accommodating to us and our golden doodle, Ruby. We will be back before we leave the Smokies. Highly recommend.
