Is it okay to lick Chinet plates in public? I'm the son of an Army cook who made (and sold) his own award-winning barbecue sauce -- and so I know good...

We ate during lunch rush hour and the service was still great. Our waitress was awesome. I had the cobb salad and my husband had chicken fried steak. The...

1. Stonehenge Golf Club

Loved this course...and it's absolutely kicked my butt. It was a beautiful, well maintained course that shouldn't pose too big of challenge to the good...

2. Rock Springs Golf Course

First of all, the lady at the front desk was nice by informing me about the topography (there were a lot of hills), and told me that it was a hard walk. If...

3. Ridgewood Golf Club

Typical rural golf course that is decent. Unfortunately it seems to take forever to get to, even if you live in Athens. It's the easiest course to walk,...

For a small local golf course with nine holes, they do a great job with the greens and fairways are pretty nice too, love the layout of the holes, cart...

5. Bear Trace Golf Course

We had a group of twelve that made tee times months in advance. They had a college tournament in which more players showed up than they'd made arrangements...

Active

Here on vacation to see our family. Everyone talked this park up and said it was very nice. We ended up going here after going to another park and being...

2. Ozone Falls

Place was beautiful. We showed up late so we didn't quite make it down to the pool at the bottom. It looked like we had one more section of rocks to...

My father and I stayed here as part of a package deal with the Bluegrass Underground concert venue / caverns. If you're looking for the specific package,...

This a great business. This is a must do if you are an out doors person. It was so peaceful, and relaxing. The trail we took was very pretty as well. They...

The Go Karts do not run in weather under 50 degrees. Visited the area in March 2014 with a couple of nieces and brought them to Chuckles twice. It's a...

Absolutely worth the visit. We explored the spiraling staircase and multiple nooks, crannies and rooms and were blow away at the craftsmanship of this...

Saw Mamma Mia. This was our first visit to the Cumberland playhouse and we will definitely be back. This production was first class!! The sound was...

I really enjoyed this place. You can go in a taste 7 wines, and they provide little bites of cheese and crackers to cleanse the palate after you taste the...

We also stopped by this winery while on our way to hiking in Tennessee. I will say I preferred Stonehaus wines and service better than this one winery, but...

Shopping
1. The Yarn Patch

Okay, so I wrote a review for this store. I emailed the owner to tell her to check out yelp, as I was pretty sure that she had never heard of it. I also...

2. Live & Let Live Drug Store

This isn't much of an update, as my review hasn't changed at all. It's still cool, and smells lovely, they still sell fun little knick-knacks, and their ice...

3. Bobby Todd Antiques

A great spot if you are looking for gifts. I think this is more of a home decor place than a really antiquey spot. Mainly because there is a significant...

4. French's Boot Store

The reason this place rocks is they have ciose outs on boots including cowboy boots i have found exotic leather boots for more than $100 off.

5. Rocking Horse Antique Gallery

Most vendors are price reasonably. Worth visiting. Has a large array of authentic antiques. Also has 'new' antiques. A few very interesting pieces...

I love Dr. Allport and his staff. I am phobic about the dentist, but this guy really does not hurt you at all. They also let you watch TV while they work....

This visit was the antithesis of what I expected! First I saw Megan who treated me to a prelim battery of tests, then over to Vickey and the totally awesome...

3. ExacCare

Couldn't ask for more efficient, friendly, or professional service. I showed up first thing as a new patient and waited less than 5 minutes to be seen. The...
