Meal & Break Service

While the resort primarily serves its overnight guests, reservations for dinner, day-trips, and holiday brunches & banquets may be available by advance arrangement. And while groups of ten people or more may pre-select an entree or two for each meal, our chefs provide individual couples and smaller parties with a dinner package, including choice of two dinner entrees, a breakfast buffet in the morning and a sack lunch.

If most dinners are five-courses, featuring an appetizer, soup, salad, entree and dessert, our chefs can also prepare reception buffets and festive overlook cookouts on designated holidays and upon group request. Midday meals are typically sack lunches, though as with dinner, plated luncheons, indoor buffets or outdoor cookouts are also available upon group request.

Provenance & Recipes

In an effort to acquire more of its food from local vendors who raise their animals in a humane, grass-fed and chemical-free environment, and who grow their produce organically, Evins Mill partners with many Tennessee-based food purveyors and tells the story of those farms, creameries, dairies, wineries, distilleries & breweries at its blog Thoughtful Provenance.

Once or so a quarter, Evins Mill posts recipes for many of its most popular entrees, sides, salads and desserts to Gastronomy, its on-line archive of culinary delights. Featuring not only recipes, but also links to video tutorials on the resort's YouTube Channel, Evins Mill makes it easy for guests to whip up some culinary magic in their own kitchen!
