Our group of 10 went here for dinner. Got there around 5pm. Will go here again, but will not be our first choice. One friend got a patty melt medium and it was dry. One friend got a burger with steak fries. The food was warm and the burger was cooked well. I got Carolina pulled pork dish and it... More

We decided to try this place after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. It was very good and the prices were extremely reasonable being in a tourist town. There were sandwiches, soups, quiches, salads, dinner entrees and wonderful desserts. The atmosphere was nice with a fireplace that added ambiance and warmth. We would definitely go back again and again!!!!

This is one of our favorites whenever we visit the Old Mill. The food is consistently good, the atmosphere is great and it is a lot of fun to walk around by the old mill and take pictures. Nice shops in the area too.

The last time we were in town we came for dinner and it was a horrible experience my wife had shrimp and grits and the grits were undercooked and soupy, neither the waitress or the manager seemed to care. We were in town recently and reading all the positive reviews I convinced my wife to give it another chance. I... More

Casual, bustling, Smoky Mountain style restaurant with some of the best food you can put in your mouth. Great service and made from scratch bakery items for dessert. All of it reasonably priced. I had the shrimp & grits with house salad and bread. My spouse had the pecan crusted pork chop with baked potato and baked apples. Oh my... More

We decided to eat here instead of the Old Mill on this trip. Excellent choice! It was the same tasty food in a more intimate setting. Plus...no wait! The French onion soup was AWESOME! The service was fast and friendly. There is a lovely garden with water feature. Great view! I loved the artisan bread with butter they served with... More

There is an Old Mill Pottery House Café and Grille and an Old Mill Restaurant, and they are right across the street from each other, and they have nothing to do with each other. They are 2 completely different businesses, owned by different people. We ate at this one, but we are wishing we had gone to the other simply... More

Two adults, 2 pre-teens and a baby ate here at lunch on a Sunday at lunch. It was very crowded but the wait wasn't too long and the food made up for wait. I ate the rib-eye steak sandwich which was very good, and the others had a variety of items. We all enjoyed the food. The service was very... More
