The Burning Bush Restaurant can only be described as one of Gatlinburg’s BEST!! It has been a long time favorite of mine for many years.
There are several dining areas and my personal favorite is the glass dining room. The fieldstone walls with black lantern lights, open ceiling beams and floor length glass windows create the perfect spot to enjoy their signature "Bountiful Breakfast". Stained glass panels suspended by ceiling chains separates the booths and are exquisitely beautiful!
We stopped in for lunch on an already hot August morning. The server immediately brought a pewter plate full of fresh fruit, which included sliced bananas, honeydew, cantaloupe, whole strawberries, grapes, mini muffins and a pewter shot glass of seedless strawberry jam. Their own special complimentary "Leconte Sunrise" was also served which resembles a strawberry daiquiri It was refreshing!! Of course . . . a shot of rum could only have made it better!
My husband was in a breakfast mood and I wanted something light. He selected the Veggie Omelet ($8.95) and I chose the Grilled Chicken Salad ($7.95). Naturally I was offered a small bite of his omelet and it was one of the best I have ever tasted. Light and fluffy, made of whipped eggs with seasonal vegetables, sliced mushrooms, mozzarella and cheddar cheeses and a dollop of sour cream . . . it had to be good! My grilled chicken salad had fresh greens, real bacon pieces, hard-boiled eggs, croutons, tomatoes, monterey jack and cheddar cheeses and grilled chicken strips. Two containers of Ranch dressing topped off this salad!!
We normally eat breakfast at The Burning Bush, which is served until 2:30 p.m. every day. The "Bountiful Breakfast" is a Gatlinburg legend where real southern tradition has been kept alive. The Burning Bush Bountiful Breakfast includes eggs, any style, all you can eat fresh cinnamon apples, grits, home fried potatoes, homemade biscuits and sausage gravy. Select your breakfast meats . . . from bacon (regular or Canadian) to sausage (patties or links) to pork chops or country ham and redeye gravy . . . Priced from $8.95 (bacon) to $10.95 for ribeye steak. The only thing missing is you!
Lunch (11am to 2:30pm) and dinner (4pm to close) are both served at The Burning Bush. Lunch entrees range in price from $6.95 to $8.95. Dinner entrees are priced from $11.95 to $20.95. Go early and enjoy a 10% "early bird special" discount from 4–6pm every day. A children’s menu is available.
Reservations are accepted but not required. Call in advance seating is available by phoning 865-436-4669. This is a casual dress environment suitable for everyone on vacation; however if you wanted to dress for a special occasion, it would create a wonderful memory.
The Burning Bush Restaurant is located at the corner of River Road and Parkway, just before you enter the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The atmosphere is cozy, the food is delicious and this is one restaurant you will want to experience while in the Gatlinburg area.
