    Default Favorite places to eat / see while in Townsend?

    I have been coming to Townsend now for years but I am finally making it up to Troutfest and bringing a fishing buddy who hasn't been before. Byron's mention of the Townsend Shopping Center in the Fishing Report got me to thinking if there were other places in Townsend that I may have missed. I understand the Phillips 66 has good biscuits in the mornings. I really enjoy the locally-owned, small-town atmosphere in Townsend but am thinking I may have over-looked some local favorites. We're staying at Dock's and love that little place. Any recommendations for good local places to see or eat while in town?
    Thanks,
    Jed

    I thought Troutfest was over? Anyway, I like Ms. Lilly's and Riverstone.

    Jed, about 2 yeasrs ago Crockett began the great thread "Where do you eat on the way to fish the park." On Page 5 there is a compilation of the contributions by the members. In it there is a section for Townsend, Wears Valley, Walland, etc.

    Joe,
    Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. I guess I need to start a new thread "places to see and things do in Townsend besides fish"!
    Thanks

    I like the bisquits at Phillips 66, but I love the chili dogs.

    Ms. Lilly's
    The BBQ place attached to River Rat.

    And of course see Crockett's thread here:

    Enjoy Dock's - great place. I stayed there the first time two years ago on advice from Ethan, though Sharron (the owner) admitted to bribing him with Christmas cookies. Though I have visited most of the Townsend hotels; after the first stay at the Docks, I haven't been anywhere else. Last October and my Wife's Uncle was trying to talk Sharron into adopting him. Go figure.

    favorite place to eat in Townsend: Subway to go and head for the river. You can eat when you get there.

    Favorite places to see in Townsend: The fly section at Little River and the Y as I decide which way to go.
