I highly recommend! The white chicken chili soup was fabulous. The strawberry spinach salad was delicious. Everything was fresh! We particularly enjoyed the outdoor seating area. A+!!

If you are in the area, this restaurant is a MUST try! We skip Old Mill and head straight to the Pottery Café every time! Food is uncomplicated and inexpensive! But the greatest thing is year after year, it is ALWAYS the same great quality! The sweet tea is refreshing and the service is top notch. You can not go... More

The atmosphere is friendly, relaxed and pretty, with the stream and fish outdoors. Service was A+. I had fried green tomatoes which were excellent.

We went there our first night in town because it was close, easy to get to, and well rated. For good reason! We enjoyed the food and the patio is beautiful. Ask to sit outside if the mosquitoes aren't bad.

Had lunch today. The baked potato soup was to die for!! The bowl is bigger than usual; soup loaded with potatoes, cheese, bacon bits and scallions. Also had 1/2 chicken salad sandwich, which was awesome! It was served with good chips and a crisp, deal pickle Our waitress was very informative and attentive.

Look, this is the best food in Pigeon Forge, period. Interesting menu choices, fresh bread and awesome desserts. They have a wait and a long line every day for a reason...the place is amazing. And make sure to get a salad with your dinner...they are excellent and they house make all the dressings and they're even better. Well done!
