Maxwell’s Restaurant – Gatlinburg
Posted by LOTGK on March 5, 2008
Maxwell’s Restaurant is located right on the Parkway in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Being in the mood for something different to eat, we ventured in and were greeted by a huge fish tank with apparently our dinner swimming inside. We were met by the hostess and seated right away. (Not a good sign on a busy week during a trade show in Gatlinburg) She took our drink order, (Diet Coke) and then our dinner order which was the grilled chicken in a lemon sauce.
Instead of the salad, I opted for the soup, which was a wise choice for it was potato soup. A huge assortment of bread was brought to our table with plenty of butter. The soup was exquisite, the best potato soup I have ever had. Big chunks of potato, carrots, celery, a hint of bacon, onion, and a very steamy broth that made my mouth water. The bread I passed on.
The main dish came out minutes after our soup and salads were done. The chicken was plentiful, cooked just right, and several added lemon slices in case more was needed. A steaming hot baked potato in butter completed the meal.
The chicken tasted great. (It tasted just like chicken!) Very tender, juicy, and just spicy enough. As baked potatoes go, this one was very good.
The cost was just under $30 not including tip.
