We have been in Elk's Plaza many times over the years of us visiting the Smokies. We used to go there all the time to dine at Best Italian. We found an Italian place that we like better, so we haven't really been dining here...More

Loved this little find! There are small shops in this little plaza that are very unique. Loved the Jerky shop with all the different types of jerky from animals that you wouldn't imagine! Very friendly people in the shops as well!

We enjoy coming here each year, mainly for Best Italian but love looking around at the various shops. Next year I hope to catch the coffee shop open before I head home!

We love stopping by Elk's Plaza, across the street from Ober Gatlinburg. Lots of neat little stores and the BEST restaurant in town, Best Italian.

This is a nice little shopping area with its own parking lot. We like looking around in the gift shop there and eating at Best Italian.

Go to this little shopping center for no reason other than to eat at Best Italian. Not the one on the parkway, this is the original. They have outdoor seating on the river if you like and the season is right. The food is outstanding...More

Almost hate to review this place for fear that others will discover it. It is a small plaza off of the Parkway close to the south end. One unique thing is that it has a limited amount of free parking for while you are there....More
