Great food especially the sourdough bread! Had to buy a loaf to take home! Very good atmosphere, with a double fireplace in the center.

11/22/14 We had lunch here today and we both had some great burgers. We were full but went with the pie like other reviewers have suggested here. They were right … Outstanding!

The Pottery House is a must visit every time we visit the Smokys. The wait can be long, but with the surrounding shops, it goes by fast. For many years we would eat at the Old Mill, but once we tried the Pottery House, we haven't been back to the Old Mill! The quaint atmosphere, friendly staff, reasonable prices, and... More

We've been to the Smoky's several times and how we ever missed this place is beyond me! While checking out tripadvisor, I saw the great reviews for the Old Mill Cafe so we decided to visit. Let me just say, we were in the area for 5 days and ate here twice! On the first visit it was between lunch... More

The service was exceptional! We ate two meals there because it was so good. The first night for dinner they also give you homemade bread. The hamburgers and the chicken reuben are delish. If you get the fries make sure you ask for the comeback sauce, you won't be sorry. The soups are homemade and tasty. Get a loaf of... More

Have eaten there every time we visited the area for years and have recommended it to friends and family. My husband and I waited 40 minutes to be seated for lunch, but it has been well worth the wait...until now. We ordered our usual chicken salad half sandwich and soup. Instead of the tasty fare we were expecting, we got... More

We were in town with a couple of friends and had intended to eat at The Old Mill but our friends suggested The Old Mill Pottery House Cafe and Grille. It was wonderful, very casual and the food was great. For an alternative from The Old Mill this has my vote.

This is the second time that we have eaten at The Pottery House. Today we had soup and sandwiches. Food is great. If you eat there at lunch and if Tully have a meat entree, like pork chops, you must request the bread. It's free with the meal, but they do not being it, with our request, at lunch. Theo... More
