Southern Charm Kitchen is a ‘Farm-to-Table’ restaurant located at 149 E. Main Street in Dandridge, Tennessee and offers a wide variety of local meat and produce.

Southern Charm Kitchen is family owned and operated.  We use fresh, local ingredients and make our foods from scratch with love and care, and southern heritage of generations before us.  Ronnie and I are both born and raised right here in the Great Smoky Mountains and are blessed to be a part of Historic Downtown Dandridge.  Being the second oldest town in the state of Tennessee, certainly has its charm and our building is no exception!  The Old Gass Building, as it’s known to locals was built in 1826 to be J.A. Gass and Sons General Store.  Looking around you can see the timelessness in its walls and floors that are original from construction.  So sit for a while, enjoy a “home cooked” meal with us, sip tea on the front porch, get treated like you’re in on a family visit… Because here in the South – food, love, family and tradition are the sugar in our sweet tea.

Much Love and Gold Bless ya’ll!
