Wears Valley Restaurants

Wears Valley restaurants feature lots of great mom and pop restaurants that serve breakfast and lunch. Some serve dinner as well. Whatever your taste buds desire in down home cooking, we’ve got it – country cooking, southern comfort food, pizzerias, and more.

Homemade Southern-style biscuits with milk gravy tops the breakfast menus in some of our Wears Valley restaurants.  Add on a side of bacon, country ham, or sausage, and you’ll be ready to start a day in the mountains.

Lunch menus include everything from hot dogs to steaks.   Local trout is served fresh.  Old-fashioned blackberry cobbler topped with vanilla ice-cream is on many menus, not only in Wears Valley restaurants but in those of nearby towns.

If you would like to pick up food to take on a picnic, you can find fried chicken and other items at several eateries.  Bootleggers BBQ offers brown bag specials while Cades Cove Corner offers a full range of picnic supplies and fried chicken – grocery items, handcut steaks, fresh deli meats, fresh produce, soft drinks, beer, and ice.  Cades Cove Corner is located at the corner of Lyon Springs Road and Wears Valley Road.
