- The Local Expert Team

Located on the grounds of the DreamMore Resort at Dollywood, Song & Hearth is open to resort guests and the general public. While there is lunch service, the main events here are the breakfast buffet and the dinner buffet, both of which are all-you-can-eat.

Song & Hearth focuses on Southern classics with a twist. While there are salads and vegetable sides, this is not the place for dieters. Expect rich, hearty dishes for breakfast and dinner. The menu rotates regularly, so guests may visit several times during their vacation and try different dishes.

Song & Hearth offers special events throughout the year, whether it’s an Easter Sunday brunch, Easter bunny visit, or romantic Valentine’s dinner. The decor is rustic farmhouse. Barn wood accents, candle lanterns, fruit label decor, and wood quilt wall art add color and cheer to the restaurant interior. The large wooden tables are located across the floor from the self-serve buffet, which is kept tidy and replenished regularly, so the food is always fresh-made.

The service at Song & Heart can be inconsistent if not slow. You’ll do best if you plan ahead, stick with the buffet, and visit the lounge for cocktails rather than order them with your meal.

While buffet offerings change regularly, a few of our menu favorites at Song & Hearth Buffet included:

Prime Rib
Perfectly cooked prime rib takes center stage on both the breakfast and dinner buffets.

Fried Chicken
Grab your favorite piece of meat and enjoy crispy skin, tender meat, and delicious flavor. Kids will enjoy the fried chicken tenders.

Pot Roast
Tender pot roast melts in your mouth. This is one American classic executed right.

Baked Potato Bar
The kid in you will smile over the loaded baked potato bar. Grab a spud and load up with all your favorite toppings, from cheese and sour cream to bacon bits.

Song & Heart Buffet puts out several kinds of pancakes. You may find red velvet, banana, chocolate chip, or sprinkles in addition to a thick, fluffy pancake that is anything but standard.

Creme Brulee French Toast
You will love this unusual twist on French toast, which features a rich creme brulee flavor.

Rounding out the breakfast buffet, you will find eggs cooked any way you like them, cereal, breakfast pastries, fruit, breakfast meats, and biscuits with gravy. On the dinner buffet, you’ll find mac and cheese, braised greens, tater tots, candied yams, mashed potatoes, and Southern-style green beans.

Song & Hearth is the only place at DreamMore Resort where you can purchase alcohol, so this makes the lounge a popular place.

Insider Tips:
-Children 3 and under eat free and ages 4-11 eat for a discounted price, so tell your server if this applies to your party.
-A surcharge applies to takeout orders.
-If the resort is busy and you can’t find a parking spot, opt for the valet parking by the main entrance.
