surfdog, if you haven't seen it before you might want to check out Crockett's thread "Where do you eat on the way to fish the park (http://littleriveroutfitters.com/forum/showthread.php?t=14435)" from a couple of years back. I compiled the suggestions and grouped by towns in post #49.

There is a neat little restaurant in Townsend its called the Firfly nest to Dollar General. We were there last week the food was great and the folks were friendly and a really nice place. Many locals eat there.

You have not lived until you have had a chili slaw dog from the Phillips 66 station in Townsend after crawling ou of the water. No shirt or shoes required!;)

Yep, them things are famous. As for g-burg, I avoid the place like the plaque. My only experience with eating there is that I killed a pitcher of margaritas on the porch at No Way Jose's. I assume they were good. I do have plenty of friends that like to eat at The Peddler. You get to choose how big of a steak they cut for you.

While I like Bennetts and Chop House:smile:, I will have to say Damon's was one of the worst dining experiences I have ever had:eek:. Didn't think Grilled BBQ chicken could be screwed up, but they proved me wrong. That should be on the list of places to avoid.

convenient to the greenbriar park entrance.

I occasionally stop at the IGA hot bar in Townsend, but it is very hit or miss. like big whiffer miss.
