Adjacent to a historical site located less than 100 yards from the restaurant, the Tellico Iron Company, which manufactured munitions for the Confederate Army during the Civil War, was also an important center of Cherokee culture. Rich in history and natural beauty, Iron Works Grille on the River, located on the shore of the Tellico River in nearby Tellico Plains, is a very special place to experience the magic of a Smoky Mountain spring. From the picturesque mist shrouded Smoky Mountains to the rapids of the Tellico River and Bald River Falls, Iron Works Grille guests are treated to both the best nature has to offer and a great dining experience.

“We also invite you to savor our gourmet burgers, sandwiches, and salads while enjoying our more than 300 feet of pristine and serene Tellico River shoreline,” said Mary Spencer, Iron Works Grille co-owner. “Also, be sure to ask about our now-famous and original bacon wrapped Wickles Pickles and homemade pork rinds, which are available in different flavors with our very own homemade ranch-style dressing or mild sauce. You’ll also want sample our extensive selection of on-tap craft beers and wines. We are also very proud to be the recipient of the Taste of Monroe’s ‘Best Overall Restaurant’ Award in Monroe County for 2019.”
