Opens Early on Glades Road
On Glades Road and opens at 11 AM. Many good items on their menu. I had the chicken salad sandwich which comes on Texas toast with fries. My partner had fish tacos which were on a flour tortilla with a piece of deep-fried fish with...spicy chipotle mayonnaise and coleslaw and fries to the side.Together with one drink for less than $2 ... read more

Delish!
We ordered a cheeseburger and fried chicken sandwich and they were both delicious. Great prices for great food. Our online order was ready on time as well.

This place is incredible! Lots of choices, absolutely delicious food! It's off the beaten path which is great since Gatlinburg is so busy and full of tourists that there is AT LEAST a hours wait for any restaurant! They even serve alcohol. It's clean, the service is off the charts! I highly recommend Split Rail Eats!! No waiting in t ... read more

A hidden gem!
So much fun to write a great review after eating at a restaurant that came through on everything. Great and friendly service, strict protocols for COVID, great tasty food that is fresh with a unique offering. Love the tater idea and ordered a taco tater...with tater tots as my salad base with fresh ingredients added. Delicious. T ... read more

Worth the stop!
Too many great choices! Wish we had this place near our home! The buffalo chicken bowl was awesome and the polish ruben was very good too!! Prices are reasonable for gatlinburg area.
sanditoe via tripadvisor.com - Oct 23, 2020
Food was great and a good value. They had an interesting selection including little hand-pie snacks, great fried chicken sandwiches and Greek options. Service was excellent too. I felt bad, seeing them work so hard to bring all the food out to people waiting outside to eat while being a little understaffed (like all restaurants are t ... read more

This place is a diamond in the rough. Located on a random road in East Tennessee, the looks of the competitors nearby seem below the standard. I stumbled across split rail eats and was blown away by the creativity in the menu. I found it difficult to decide what to order because everything sounded delicious - and it was!!!

I recently visited Split Rail when in the Pigeon Forge area and this little spot outside of Gatlinburg offers some really solid food for a fair price. The location itself is very quaint with outdoor seating available as well if the weather is nice. During my visit I purchased the Philly cheesesteak with mushrooms and it was pretty go ... read more

Great lunch spot.
Great lunch spot. Get the fried chicken sandwich, and the loaded potato soup if they have it. Their online menu does have some stuff Listed that they did not have on their menu in the restaurant which was a bummer.

Our food was very good, but the service was pretty slow. With all the crazy covid stuff, we figured we're all doing the best we can.

I've never been to Gatlinburg before and I wasn't really sure what to expect. We got a hotel on the main drag and honestly it was just crazy crowded. Especially with everything going on with Covid, we wanted to escape the crowd.

Great little place, kind of tucked away and easy to miss. We had a sandwich and the cheese fries app and both were really good! Wanted to try their sweets but was too full.

Molly Butz via google.com - Oct 2, 2020
Great little spot for a beer and a meal. To bad the property owners that this cute restaurant is in doesn't market or have signage to promote the open air shopping. From the road appears to be an apartment complex...but the first level of the buildings is retail spaces.

Did an online order, for lunch, while driving. Sat and waited a few. Got the kids hotdogs, fish tacos, cheeseburger and two Jacked Turkeys. Everything was excellent. Came out nice and hot for our short drive back to our cabin. Happy we found this place.

Good looking interior and very clean.
