“enjoy the scenic views & legendary fried apples”
Overlook the Smokies and apple orchards and have a delightful meal at Carver's Applehouse! Actually a family farm orchard, the Carvers have been growing apples in the area since the 1940s. Kyle Carver started his orchard in 1942, hand grafting and planting apple trees in his cornfield. The orchard now sits on 75 acres in Cosby, boasting over 40,000 trees and 126 varieties of apples. To whet your appetite, you will be brought a basket of apple fritters served with apple butter and a juice glass of apple cider. Sample a breakfast special, served with Carver's homemade apple cider and crispy apple fritters, with Carver's homemade apple butter, 2 eggs any style, grits or gravy, fried apples or oven-browned potatoes and homemade buttermilk biscuits. The catfish is legendary, pair it with pinto beans and fried apples; the chicken pot pie is exceptional. In the store, you will find a dazzling array of canned goods from relishes to jams--the perfect gifts to take home. Appalachian specialties such as lye soap, apple butter, candies and, of course, their legendary fried apple pies are available at the store.

This took me a little farther from the interstate than I was prepared to go, but I'm glad I did. The area is absolutely gorgeous, and my kids and I loved the whole experience. There is a candy shop with homemade and hard-to-find candies, a farm store with fresh produce (lots and lots of apples, jams, jellies, etc.), a stand for buying fried apple pie (a generously sized pocket of dough filled with apples and deep-fried), and a full-service restaurant. We picked up apples and peach butter, delicious homemade peanut brittle and chocolates (they have homemade sugar-free chocolates, too), and ate dinner in the restaurant. I had tasty, fresh rainbow trout. I wouldn't recommend the green beans as a side, though! But yes to the side of apples!
The food was excellent. The homemade mash potatoes, the chicken and dumplings, the BBQ were YUM! However none of the staff was in masks. Had we not driven an hour to get there, we would not have eaten there.
