We ate here for lunch and really enjoyed the overall experience. We loved the garden panini and we especially loved the fried green tomatoes. Love the location...its very quaint.

One of our favorites. Food is always excellent and generous servings. Great menu. You could go nowhere else and still try something new every day. Service is excellent, and the servers are super friendly.

Our first time. Restaurant was recommended to us and we were extremely happy. Very cozy atmosphere. The husband had a half shaved country ham sandwich with homemade kettle chips and potato soup. I had the potato soup and a strawberry salad. We were stuffed but just had to share a piece of coconut pie with mile high meringue. OH MY... More

We like it so well, we're taking another Fall-Color mini-vacation that will include meeting friends at The Old Mil Pottery House Cafe. I don't even mind climbing the rampway to the second floor. It just whets my appetite. I have taken photos of us with friends enjoying the view, the atmosphere, friendliness and quality of food.

Had to wait about an hour to be seated, but it was well worth it!! Ate there two nights in a row! The Jalapeño Corn Pudding is SOOO good!! The manager (?) came around and asked how everything was--he was VERY nice--wish we had gotten his name. (Originally from Lubbock, Texas). We had eaten there a couple of times before... More

Arrived at around 6pm on a Monday evening, there was an approximate 1 hour wait so we put our name down on the list and they gave us a beeper. We went for a wander around and ended up over the road at the moonshine shop for a taste test and came away with chocolate flavoured moonshine..yum. We wandered back... More

There was going to be an hour wait to be seated for dinner, so I ordered take out and went back to my room. This was ok, because I was tired from traveling. The food was very good and there were good sized portions of everything. I definitely would recommend to others and I would eat here again.

My husband and I were looking for a reasonably priced lunch in the Pigeon Forge area. We decided to try out the Old Mill Pottery House Cafe and Grille, having eaten at the Old Mill Restaurant the last time we visited the area. I wasn't super hungry, so I just went with the Pottery House Side Salad, but my husband... More
