I'm dedicated to keeping it local!   

You don't have to drive to Knoxville to enjoy waterfront restaurants.  We're lucky to have fabulous lakefront options on both Cherokee and Douglas Lakes.  Not only amazing food but the WOW views will make the experience even more special.  Cheers to lakefront living and summer dining!
