We were back in Pigeon Forge after a long day in the national park and we were hungry. The Old Mill had been fun on a previous visit (6 years prior), but we weren't up for a 60 minute wait. So, we walked over to the Cafe and Grille across the street and got immediate seating. The menu was basically... More

First thing - if you get a chance to sit outside do it! It's very quaint with only about 8 tables scattered around so it's not crowded. There's a little stream that flows through it with Koi fish in a pond. We went last night & the service was top notch! The bread they bring to your table is wonderful... More

Megan was a fabulous server and gave great suggestions when asked. I had the broccoli and cheese quiche with spinach salad and my husband had a pork chop with mashed potatoes and apples with cinnamon. For dessert we shared Key Lime pie with fresh whipped cream and both had lemonade. The meal was perfection and their fresh homemade bread that... More

The Old Mill Pottery House Café is quaint, relaxed, peaceful... unless you plan to eat there during a Rod Run. Of course, everything is frantic during one of these weekends in Pigeon Forge. I suspect this restaurant loves it and hates it at the same time. Anyway, they did the best they could, the food was excellent, and the rocking... More

YOU must try the chicken fingers at the Pottery House. - from the time we arrived - Sara seated us and gave us a quite table for the two of us to spend time together. We went during lunch hour rush and had a little wait - but well worth it. Our waitress was hospitable and made the suggestion of... More

For a great lunch you've got to go to the Old Mill Pottery House. Delicious soups, sandwiches and salads. And don't forget to try one of their house made cakes or pies. If the weather is nice sit outside in the backyard. While small, it is delightful. My only warning is...it can be very crowded and there can be a... More

great food. Had breakfast...country ham was great. If you leave hungry it's your own fault! They serve you complimentary OJ and banana nut muffins. Over medium eggs cooked perfect.

We arrived for supper on a Saturday evening around 7:30. I was a little worried because they close at 9:00. The place was packed because of the huge Rod Run which brought in tons of people. We only had to wait about 1/2 hour to get seated. Our waitress was Autumn and she was awesome!!! I thought the service would... More

I have been to this cafe two times now and I have to say they have the best panini sandwiches. It is a great little place to duck off of the busy stip and relax with good food. Also the in house bakery makes the entire place smell amazing!
