Tennessee State Park Restaurants has eight eateries under its umbrella, all of which can be found in scenic locales sprinkled across the state. Park-goers can take a load off after a long day of hiking and sightseeing to dig into different specialties. Each spot offers a unique menu?Cumberland Mountain specializes in catfish on Fridays, whereas Pickwick Landing combines Southern cuisine with views of the water.
The diversity of Relish's offerings?from its dine-in menu of salads and sandwiches to its bakery treats ?represents the eatery's evolution from a small deli to a full-blown restaurant. Those early diner favorites, such as tuna melts and meatball subs, still fill bellies alongside bread bowls full of hot pasta. On the bakery side, custom cakes, gourmet cupcakes, cookies, and cheesecakes line the counters or await pickup for a future event.
The pizza pros at Michael?s Pizza knead freshly made dough into circular palettes before slathering house-made tomato sauce, creamy mozzarella cheese, and a m?lange of high-quality toppings. Michael?s menu includes masterpieces of handmade subs, salads, strombolis, and calzones.
Edelweiss's rustic Bavarian décor complements a mouth-watering billow of scents and sights, from succulent sandwiches to a daily selection of traditional sweets. The menu transports gastronomes into delectable Deutsch dining, much like the pumpernickel-paved autobahn, with heaping schnitzel sandwiches ($7.99) flanked by german potato salad, and currywurst platters, which showcase a duo of bratwursts cloaked in curry sauce ($8.99). Parched wurst-wolfers can swig one of Edelweiss' German beers or explore the eatery's rotating cast of fresh-baked sweets, such as black forest tortes, apple strudel, and a variety of sugar-free options. Edelweiss's traditional breakfast includes cold cuts, two rolls, and preserves ($8.79), while the Polish alternative ($8.79) taps the taste-bud-trouncing power of kielbasa.
Freedom Deli's army of hearty sandwiches, available for carryout or delivery, can ably oust hunger from meetings and get-togethers. Bread such as sub rolls, croissants, pretzel bread, and ciabatta—like the walk-in safes of wealthy butchers—lock up rich, flavorful Boar's Head meats. The shop's epic Heavy Lift comes stacked with a farmyard trinity of roast beef, Virginia baked ham, and smoked turkey ($9.95), and the corned-beef sandwich slathers its marble rye canvas with sauerkraut, swiss cheese, and thousand-island dressing ($6.95). Former college students looking to showcase their mature tastes can brandish the pizza sandwich, a refined handheld that encases pepperoni, marinara, and mozzarella ($6.95). Delivery is available within 10 miles of Freedom Deli, and a minimum eight-sandwich order is required.
Inspired by the concept that potatoes are "the new pasta," Potato Bowl drapes hand-cut fries and baked potatoes with unconventional toppings that range from garlic parmesan alfredo to thai chili sauce. Drawing ingredients from locally harvested vegetables and beef from local farmers, Potato Bowl's chefs create each potato topper from scratch. The gluten-free and MSG-free bowls include the ClarksVegas, which is topped with black-bean turkey chili and can also be used to lure raccoons into your boss’s filing cabinets.
