CP Food-13

We invite our guests to relax and unwind at Christopher Place. From our gorgeous veranda to our luxurious sauna, we know that getting ‘away from it all’ really is possible at our Smoky Mountains Resort.

And we know that when you’re ‘away from it all’ you need great food to keep you fueled, give you that full-and-cozy feeling, and to provide a great icing on the cake – both literally and figuratively.

Mountain View Restaurant

If you’re looking for Smoky Mountain fine dining, look no further! Christopher Place offers the Mountain View Restaurant for dinner reservations Tuesday through Saturday evenings, for both guests and the public. Reservations are required 24 hours in advance.

Smoky Mountain romantic dining is the name of the game at the Mountain View Restaurant. From the candlelight to the fireplaces, from the breathtaking mountain views to the four-course menu, you’re sure to leave satisfied from every detail that goes into making this dining experience so special.

Each meal is created by our chef, Karen Valentine. We are pleased to offer a full selection of fine wines – available by the glass or by the bottle – as well as cocktails. Special dietary concerns are gladly accommodated. Dinner is $40 per person, with the steak selection at $50, unless otherwise stated.

After a couple of hours, we dined in the resort’s lovely dining room with the fireplace lit just for us. For dinner we had a five course meal that was both unique and delicious. My description will never do the meal justice so imagine five courses including crab bisque, asparagus and arugula salad, filet mignon, mashed red potatoes, green beans with almonds, and a dessert that was a splendid concoction of raspberries, chocolate, cream and fluff.


Marston’s Library Pub

Marston’s Library Pub is a casual atmosphere serving cocktails and wine by  the glow of the fireplace.

“The location is far away from the noise and congestion of daily life.. and the food is just “to die for” as we southern folk say!”
“Beautiful rooms, excellent service and the secluded peace of the Smoky Mountains combine to make this the perfect place for a honeymoon. Delicious dinners and an in-room fireplace were the icing on the cake for us.”
