Fine Dining at our Smoky Mountain Restaurant

Dish at our Smoky Mountain Restaurant near Gatlinburg TN

We invite our guests to relax and unwind at Christopher Place Resort. 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.

We’ve dined at fine restaurants through the US and Europe and have found few to compete with the meals at Christopher Place.Elizabeth on TripAdvisor, 2016

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.”
