This was our second time visiting The Old Mill Pottery House Cafe & Grill. Just like the first time, we were so glad we came for lunch. The parking can be tricky when the area is crowded but there's a parking lot across the road & within walking distance. The staff is always friendly & the waitstaff is very personable... More

They were very busy but everything came quickly. Also, the waitors weren't too bad to look at either. Food was very southern tasting and not what you'd expect if you are from the Midwest, like me. Overall, it was great.

We enjoyed our time in Pigeon Forge recently. We stopped at the Old Mill Pottery House for lunch. Being from the northeast and having one of the coldest winters in a while, it was so great to be there with the flowers blooming, bees buzzing. The restaurant was very busy. We were seated on the back patio. There were 5... More

Ate during Lunch time. Service was good even though they were really busy. Had Ham & Cheese Quiche and strawberry spinach salad. Husband had the blacken Catfish, shrimp & grits. All were great. Bread was great! Will return when back in the area.

The kitchen staff produced food fast and it was delicious! The restaurant was really cute and the aesthetics were appealing. However, the female eastern european waitress was not great. She took a while to get our order and at the end of our meal she asked if we wanted desert and when we declined we assumed she would bring our... More

We had stopped in for a quick lunch and found the service very good. We ordered the Spinach Quiche and soup which was delicious. I can say that we will be visiting again.

We started with fried green tomatoes as an appetizer. There were two varieties and we with the regular fgt and it still had a little bit of a spice to it. I had the pecan pork chops, which were thick, well cooked and delicious. The bread and butter is so good I could have eaten the whole basket by myself.... More

The service was great here - I would definitely recommend it! The lunch was reasonably priced and there was tons of food! The peanut butter pie is a must! It was so good we went twice.

This place behind the Old Mill Restaurant area off the Parkway on Old Mill Avenue. Love the pottery! You can actually walk to the back and watch it being made and the guys working there answer all your questions. The Café & Grill is pretty good and they have hamburgers and other sandwiches, soups, salads, etc. Decent price - maybe... More
