What is the best time to buy apples by the bushel and can i get apoles that havent been sprayed so they will get mellow quicker

Apples are harvested in September and October

do you have plenty apples left

Thats funny!

Can you dine-in

Yes

Do you still have plenty of apples?

Tons

Does the business take debit or credit cards?

Yes...gladly

Do I need reservations for approximately 14 people for a week day?

For that many people I would say yes.

Do you serve breakfast?

Yes, they have a really good breakfast.

Is the restaurant open the month of November

The food quality is definitely not what is touted to be especially when it comes to the dumplings that they offer. They are just pieces of flavorless dough. There are many restaurants in that area that all offer "Southern cuisine" and try to pass it off as home cooking. It is not home cooking!! As many times as I have been in that area I have not found a restaurant of their that offers truly Southern cuisine cooked like My grandmother or mother Cooks. Another issue that we had at that restaurant was the person who manages it is not a friendly person at all. The only problem that we ran into was the quality of food and for customer service. When I pointed out the fact that the food was so salty it was inedible , The manager was rude and did not all for to rectify the problem at all. It was the if she took offense at me pointing out the obvious. There was several tables who had exactly the same problem. Don't waste your money on the restaurant but the produce side is great!!

Is the apple cider made locally?

Couldn't be fresher or more local. Right there.

Do you still get fritters with every meal?

No- we were here in Aug. 2020 and this did not come with our meal. We were offered 6 for $2 something or 12 for $4.50 or something like that. We opted to get them because hello! And it was worth it- the apple butter was delicious but fritters and cider did NOT come with our meals (Can’t say I blame them). Would have been heavenly if it did though!

We loved our lunch. I tried the catfish and was very impressed. There was only one issue. When I eat fried fish I like to drench it in lemon juice. They charge you if you ask for more than 2 lemon wedges. Apparently they do this so people don't make lemonade out of water. I get it, but I was drinking iced tea. We will return when we are back in the area.

I live locally so I'm very close to Carver's I visit there way more than I should that's for sure. But that's because they are so flipping nice and the food is so incredibly fresh and homemade. I don't think I could stay away from their chicken and dumplings if I tried. Lol when you're in the area you have to stop here. It's a fun little spot tucked away in the mountains.

Irony....I have always wanted to eat fried chicken at Paula Deens which we did on our recent trip to the Gatlinburg area. I must say the fried chicken we ate here blew Paul’s Deens out of the water !! If you want to eat absolutely tasty fried chicken 🍗 eat here and skip the big fancy places. True authentic old fashion country cooking made to order.

Good food, however, the waitresses were a little on the cranky side which is not that impressive considering the prices. They worked fast to get us our food though. The market next door was nice.

I've been here about 3 times. Not impressed. Servers are extremely busy and brusque. Food barely lukewarm. They stopped including the apple fritters, now you have to buy separate. Don't even think about getting their "famous" fried apple pies because they're nothing but mush, no apples at all in them. Disappointing. Atmosphere is nice as you overlook the apple orchard, but the AC was broke so management wouldn't let you raise the blinds. There's a type of farmer's market next door and a candy shop on premises that you can buy some of the old fashioned candies you had as a kid.

Scrumptious food. The apple fritters are amazing especially with the apple butter. I had the fried cat fish. The coleslaw wasn't anything special. The view of orchard is nice. And definitely checkout their store for cider, apples and preserves among many other things.

The cheese burgers are horrid. The pork chops are also horrid. They have absolutely no taste whatsoever. I will never go back there to eat again. This was my first time eating there.

We decided to go here for lunch when we were in the area. Little disappointed in the quality of the food. We had great service, no issues. Just was expecting more out of this establishment. It's southern based foods and I was raised on that by my grandma. Very generic and needed love.

Horrible experience. First, the apple fritters came out ice cold and the apple butter wasn’t sweet at all. Then, my girlfriend and I order the special, which was chicken tenders, two veggies, a drink, and dessert for $12.00. The food was not terrible, however, the dessert ended up being a flavorless brownie—We thought we’d have the choice of dessert since the sign said that the special came with a dessert. Instead the server just brought the brownie out and sat it down then walked away. When I talked to the manager I was completely polite but was meet with attitude, and the issue was not resolved.

Everything we ate was delicious! I had the chicken pot pie and my fiancé had the chicken and dumplings, I tasted his and loved both. I could eat the chicken pot pie every night. The quality of the good was awesome, everything tasted fresh and homemade. Our server was very friendly with a great sense of humor, and made helpful recommendations. We also visited the candy store and market which had plentiful options of local treats! A must-see in the area.

Our lunch was a mixture of good and not so good. The fried chicken breast, string beans and homemade mashed potatoes were good, the pork barbecue was not so good. Plus the air conditioning was on the fritz on a 90 degree day. And the fried apple pie was not very good either. Maybe another day or a different selection would be better.

Love this place. Fresh fruits and vegetables. I have been going for over 40 years. Fantastic apple butter, honey, apple cider, candy store, restaurant and much more. They have the best homemade apple pie you have ever had. It tastes like my grandmother's fried apple pies and that is saying a lot. They even have sugar free apple butter. If you have never been, please put it on your itenerary.

Absolutely loved this market. I grabbed some blackberry syrup, some dark honey, and the boysenberry jam to take home. Everything is very well priced and organized. We also stopped by their candy store. Although the prices are a little steeper, the candy is amazing so we didn't mind.
