OUR TOWNSEND TN RESTAURANT
At our Townsend TN Restaurant, Dancing Bear Appalachian Bistro, we know that great food begins with fresh, quality sourced ingredients. On our menu, you’ll find Appalachian-inspired dishes that are familiar and steeped in tradition yet enhanced with bold new dashes of flavor and component combinations that may surprise and delight you.
An Elevated Dining Experience
Dancing Bear provides a premium lodging experience. We bring the same commitment to excellence to our restaurant. Whether enjoying a romantic dinner for two or bringing the extended family together for a celebratory meal, we want your night out in Townsend to be a very special experience. We offer a refined assortment of regionally inspired dishes — all served among rustic surroundings and calming wooded vistas. From enjoying a cocktail or beer on our patio built around trees, to warming up next to the fire pit while making s’mores, you truly become part of the breathtaking natural surroundings as soon as you arrive.
Dancing Bear Appalachian Bistro is under the direction of Shelley Cooper. From time to time, we will bring in distinguished guest chefs for special dining events.
