Dillard House The

Restaurant | "Dillard House"

Outstanding American home-style restaurant. Bring an appetite. All you can eat and take home. This was the first place that has both all-you-can-eat and take-home. As soon as you sit down, they bring out plenty of food. Your table will be covered with plates of food. $18-20/adult, $10-15/child. Holidays, expect a 1-4 hour wait. I suggest stopping by early to get a number, then visit their shops, horse stables, fishing ponds, or nearby town. They also take reservations. The wait is worth the taste and satisfaction of a full tummy.

An excellent stop along the way, off of Highway 441 on our way to Sky Valley. The beautiful sight of Tellula Gorge and Gift Shop. Excellent hot or cold cider.

The view of the gorge is breathtaking. Spy glasses are available for a close-up look. The gift shop is full of assorted gifts and items to choose from. Bathrooms are also available.
