We ate at the Pottery House Café on our last trip to the Smokies. It is a great place for a salad. soup, or sandwich. they have seating both inside and outside. There is also a very good bakery inside the café. Give it a try next time you are in Pigeon Forge.

The food was super exspensive. We waited for 45 minutes for good that was super bland. Much better food other places value sucked. Exspensive!

We stopped here with friends for lunch. There is a fairly large inside dining room and a small outside garden dining area. The service was wonderful and food arrived in short order. Our lunch was absolutely terrific. Don't miss the bakery where pies and bread can be purchased to go. On a busy day at peak hours, parking can be... More

This was our second trip here this weekend. We were seated immediately.The smell of fresh baked cinnamon bread was wonderful. Great food. My very picky son loved the mac and cheese and the basket of delicious bread. The bread was so good we got extra to bring home. can't wait to return to the area to eat here again.

This was the best place we ate while in Pigeon Forge. Bread was hot and delicious (we were given a second order which we ate!) Amount is generous - go hungry. Wait staff was professional and friendly. Loved the sweetened peach ice tea which the waitress recommended - she knows her products!

The portions are huge! My sister and I shared. The evening meal includes a dessert in the price! Super good! I recommend the stir fry!

Stopped here with some family. Very busy were gonna have to wait if we didn't sit outside, but it was cool and the outside scenery was nice. I suggest sitting out side. The service was great and the food was even better. I had a salad, my family had the praline pork chop and a cheese burger both were very... More

Hands down, this is the BEST restaurant in Pigeon Forge. The food is delicious, the atmosphere is quaint, and the service is spectacular. Our only regret is that we didn't find it sooner! The food is served on their own homemade pottery which is beautiful. We went on a Sunday night and waited only 10 minutes for a table for... More
