We had four different meals and none of us left hungry. We planned on eating this as a lunch but the portions carried us over for the rest... read more

This was one of our favorite places we ate at on vacation. They bring out warm delicious homemade bread that just melts in your mouth. There are so many food choices from salads , burgers, sandwiches, to full entrees . It doesn't stop there though! They had desserts to die for. Chocolate cake, carrot cake, coconut cream pie, chocolate pecan... More

We wanted a nice lunch in a nice setting and this fit the bill. Our waitress was very attentive. The food was fresh and everyone was happy with their meal. Part of the charm is that the restaurant was formerly a pottery artists private residence. The fried green tomato BLT was a fun spin on a traditional sandwich. Be prepared... More

The staff is friendly and attentive and the food is "country cooking". It is good and the portions are huge. The price is very reasonable for Pigeon Forge and the quality of the food.

The reviews are dead on. Quaint restaurant by the water. We had lunch and were seated and served quickly. Our server was most efficient and friendly. This restaurant operates with precision. The food was excellent and plentiful. Planning on a return visit for dinner!

Service was fantastic! Our waitress was working so hard. When you sit down at the table they immediately serve you with corn fritters and corn chowder. Both are very good! Atmosphere is very family friendly! We really enjoyed it! Me and my daughter ordered the fried pork chops. They were good, but not as good as the ones we have... More

We stop at this cafe every time we are in Pigeon Forge. The food is amazing and delicious. Large portion sizes with the freshest homemade breads. The pottery the food is served on just ads to the quaintness of this cafe.

I was told that this was better than the Old Mill Restaurant and was not disappointed. Excellent food and the patio area is awesome. Highly recommend this, if you want good food at a reasonable price.
