We were in Pigeon Forge for a weekend getaway and decided to have lunch. What a great choice. After being seated, we were promptly wanted on by one of most friendly servers we have had the chance to meet. Gracious servings of good hearty food. There were three of us. We had the chicken salad sandwich, chicken tender (1/2 beast... More

Great place for a casual dinner. Definitely not fast food, but a good and varied menu... and very good attentive service. The wait can be a little long, especially during the high season, but they do a good job of moving people along without making you feel rushed. Try the seating in the garden for special occasion!

One of the best places to eat in Pigeon Forge. Everything is great and you must try one of their desserts. One of our favorites that we go to every time we visit.

We've eaten at this little cafe more times than I can count. It is one of our favorites. The food is always excellent and the atmosphere is warm and inviting. You may choose to eat in the garden area weather permitting. Choose home made breads, a slice of pie or the whole pie, a slice of decadent chocolate cake or... More

If we have company in town and want to get a good meal at a reasonable price, we take them to the Old Mill Pottery House Cafe and Grill. Their food is consistently good. They have a good variety of different dishes that are sure to please. Be sure to check out their bakery. It smells so good.

Went here with friends for a 40th birthday lunch. Had to wait a little bit for a table but it was worth it! Sat outside (yes, in January!) but it was perfect next to the koi pond. Loved the atmosphere. The service was superb and the menu was full of very unique southern items. I had the pimento cheese BLT... More

We ate here with a large family group for dinner. Service was warm and attentive and the food was delicious. The fresh baked bread was crusty on the outside and tender on the inside. We all had different items off the menu and everything was delicious. There wasn't anything that I wouldn't recommend. We also took a loaf of bread,... More

Had a late lunch and it was great as usual. Started with the fried green tomatoes and ended with almond joy pie. Our server was good and the prices are not bad for the amount of food you get.
