One of the greatest assets of living on the lake is lakeside dining. Tellico Village has a variety of lakeside dining options, however, four restaurants really stand out from the crowd:
The Blue Heron: Part of the Tellico Village Yacht Club, the Blue Heron Restaurant is located on the Village’s very own private lakefront property. Enjoy American cuisine in a casual upscale atmosphere. Views of the lake and mountains, in addition to their food and events, makes for an amazing dining experience.
Lakehouse Grill: Lakeside Grill is located at Sequoyah Landing, only about 15 minutes away from The Blue Heron. The Grill has a family friendly atmosphere, great views of the lake, and live entertainment on the weekends. With everything on the menu from fresh seafood to veggie burgers, everyone in the family is sure to find something to enjoy.
Tanasi: Pull up to the dock and enjoy a classic club sandwich and a cold drink while overlooking the golf course or watching the boats go by on the lake. With a relaxing atmosphere, good service and great lunch combos and specials, Tanasi is always a good one stop shop for a refreshing meal.
Calhoun’s: With two lakeside locations, Calhoun’s (famous for their award winning BBQ) is the perfect place to dock your boat for a bite to eat. The Fort Loudon Lake location includes a panoramic view of the lake while overlooking one of Tennessee’s largest marina. In addition to having a location on Fort Loudon Lake, Calhoun’s has an additional lakeside location on the Tennessee River close to Neyland Stadium. No matter which location you choose, Calhoun’s is sure to provide an array of delicious variety for you and your family to enjoy.
Lakeside Tavern: With a longer boat ride, you can enjoy Knoxville’s premier waterfront dining. Lakeside Tavern has an outstanding selection of steaks (their Grand Champion Angus comes highly recommend), along with many fresh seafood options. With a quality upscale dining atmosphere, the Tavern is an ideal location to enjoy lunch or dinner with family and friends.
