Stopped by Old Dad's to just pick up some quick snacks not realizing they had a restaurant inside. Ordered lunch and it was wonderful. The atmosphere is great, staff incredibly friendly and fun and it was very clean as well. We will definitely stop in again on our next trip to the mountains.

Old Dad's is a combination diner and general store. It has a quaint, old time feel about it. We had the Philly Cheeseteak sandwich and Roast Beef sandwich with tater tots on the side. The tots were good and crispy and were a nice change from the usual fries or chips. Our sandwiches were good, but not great. I think... More

After a long day with a need for something good and a great selection, I had the best service and taste of the menu at Old Dad's. I was engulfed by the quiet atmosphere then and now that permeates the surrounds and makes enjoyment of the visit the great experience it deserves.

The owners of this store/deli actually opened this up so that first responders could be fed and given sustenance as they fought the wildfires and worked on the damage all around the city. They actually opened before anyone was allowed back into the city which was amazing and did the community a great service!

If there is anything that you need for your cabin, this store will more than likely have it. Groceries galore for eating in, little toys for the kiddos, and a grill to fill the belly. A nice place to stroll in for odds and ends along with goodies to bring home. The food is just like the cafes here in... More

This is a very cool gift shop as well as a sandwich and snack shop. It's not a big place but they have great food and cool collectibles to take home.

The store has everything that you need for camping or hiking. I hate to compare them but Old Dad's is like 7&11 on steroids. The staff are courtesy and helpful on providing information about the area. Now for the snack bar inside...the guys behind the counter know how to cook. They are quick and thorough in taking the order, cooking,... More

My wife and I came here to eat lunch one day while walking in Gatlinburg. A lot of the restaurants had long lines to wait for lunch but they did not. We waited in line at the register to order our food and was placed our order in less than 5 minutes. Then we picked up some drinks and went... More
