Friendly Falls Food & Stuff

Friendly Falls Food & Stuff is a unique outdoor restaurant on Cove creek in beautiful Wears Valley, TN.  Order inside and eat in our garden or on our deck overlooking the river and our very own waterfall!  We also have live music, show movies in our garden, serve fresh homemade burgers, wings, trout, and veggie options, and will even marry you at the waterfall.  While you are here, support local artists and check out the handmade crafts in the store.

Relax in the garden and watch the great variety of wildlife on the property including snakes, salamanders, fish, raccoons, blue herons, turltles, bats, and we even have a family of river otters.

The property used to house the former Cascades Lodge built in the 1920's.  Many old rock walls and the remnants of the creek fed swimming pool remain.  There are also stories of buried Confederate gold.

Friendly Falls is also a member of the Appalachian Quilt Trail.
