Our Story

Welcome to Dinner Bell Restaurant!

Southern Food served with a friendly smile!

"I remember my mother ringing the Dinner Bell on Sunday evenings and everybody came to enjoy Southern Country cooking: family and friends, everybody was welcomed. The children were playing outdoors and the adults were sitting in their rocking chairs discussing the weather and other important topics of daily life", the owners remember.

In this tradition the family owned and operated Dinner Bell Restaurant has been serving up since 1975 the finest quality southern cooking to the residents of Sweetwater, TN and travelers. Open at 6am daily you can stop by for our home cooking buffet which includes breakfast, lunch, and dinner. In addition, we offer a full menu featuring specialty burgers, great club sandwiches, steaks and seafood. Our fried chicken is a customer favorite. Our friendly staff is proud to promote our down home atmosphere and make everyone feel like family. 

In addition to our incredible food, we also operate a wonderful gift shop. Hand crafted, home made and other one of a kind items line the shelves of our store. Perfect representations of memories old and new, the shop is always obtaining new items that are sure to amaze. 

For a one of a kind dining and shopping experience and Southern Hospitality with a smile, stop in to Dinner Bell Restaurant today!
