    Good food and so dog friendly

    We enjoyed a relaxing early lunch. They brought out a water bowl and extra cup of water for Nikita as soon as we sat down in the covered patio area. Food was very good and we all enjoyed our time here. Will be back many times before our trip ends.

    Great lunch spot

    Stopped in here for lunch today. It was a nice place to get a delicious lunch and keep our pup cool. The Fido friendly seating area is out on their patio. It is a fully covered patio and has a cement floor which was nice and cool for our pup to lay down on while we ate. The food was amazing. My husband had the fried fish sandwich and I had the chicken salad salad. Both were fantastic choices. They are a little understaffed currently, so you will have to give some grace to the hard working employees keeping everything going. We will definitely be back to the Cafe.
    You will want to bring our own bowl of water for your pup if needed.

    Best food in town.

    We've been here a few times never been disappointed. The price is the same you would pay at waffle house or crackerbarrel, but here the food is made to order from farm fresh produce. The staff always spoil our fluffy dude. Last time we were here they turned on all the outdoor heaters so we could be comfortable. I've had breakfast lunch and dinner here.

    Cute Place But...

    The food here is incredibly overpriced and incredibly blah. They take advantage of the folks who are exploring the national park. I was grateful that they were awesomely dog-friendly, but next time we will pack a picnic.

    Very Welcoming Great Food

    Stopped in with my two labs after visiting Cades Cove. My wife and i were able to sit out under the covered porch and enjoy a nice lunch with the dogs next to us. Loved the burger and the fixins bar. My wife enjoyed her chef salad. They had a nice dog walk across the parking lot with pick up bags available.

    Just So So

    Yesterday was super busy and the wait was over an hour long. We enjoyed the patio area and live entertainment. Food was ok but not worth the wait and a tad pricey for hamburgers and hotdogs. The staff never greeted our poodle but the other patrons made up for it. She loved all the head pats. The parking lot looked to be freshly paved so be careful of puppy dogs paws with the heat.

    Friendly Staff, Good Food

    Apple Valley Kitchen Cafe has a covered patio area that can even be enjoyed on rainy days. Luckily, it was sunny and beautiful when we visited, and our pooch loved being able to sunbathe on the patio while we enjoyed our meal. The staff was friendly, but unfortunately didn't even acknowledge our little guy or bring him a water bowl. The food was pretty good though, and we're glad our pup got to enjoy a meal in little Townsend with us.

    very friendly staff

    Super busy today but the staff was very happy to stop and make sure Benny had a bowl of water. The porch was covered and offered good shelter from today’s rain plus some fans blowing to keep everyone cool.
