The Carver Applehouse is a gem! We were visiting Gatlinburg when we ventured out of the area and found this wonderful restaurant/orchard/store. Delicious food and great value! Our waitress Dawn was very attentive and friendly. I believe they have limited restaurant hours in the winter months so, call before heading over to the restaurant. My family will visit again.

Stop in every time I'm in the area, and once again it did not disappoint. Great food and service. View of the apple orchard is also great. If you really want to treat yourself, try one of the fried apple pies. Hope to return soon

We were on our way to Pigeon Forge when we stopped at a place called RT Yard Art. While talking to the very nice guy there we mentioned it was time to find a place to eat and he recommended Carver's Applehouse just a short drive from there. We were hungry...it was close....so that's where we went. As soon as... More

Nothing fancy but the food is great. A bit of apple this and that with your meal is a nice addition. There's also a nice apple market attached.

Worth the 25 minute drive outside of Gatlinburg. Definitely the best breakfast in the area. Must try the apple fritters and fresh apple cider. Beautiful scenic views from all angles of the dining room overlooking the apple orchards. Great service and well priced.

Ate here while in the mountains for a family Christmas trip. Had planned to take everyone to The Apple Barn but decided on Carver's Applehouse after reviewing their menu. Excellent decision! Both the food and the service were fantastic and we all ate for probably less than half the price of The Apple Barn. Bought several items from the store... More

These folks care about doing it right. Located on the grounds of their apple orchard, it's all about the apples. When you are seated, the first thing you receive is a sampling of their fresh pressed apple cider and a complimentary order of hot apple fritters. We have been a few times and the food is always fresh, hot and... More
