We went with my son and his family for breakfast. We had been here before for dinner. The waitress was excellent and very friendly. Food was very good and plentiful. My wife loved the French toast. We will definitely go back.

This place was packed. You can tell that the owners of this establishment are used to being packed as it is run as a really well running machine. Servers are fast, the cooks are fast, bussers are fast. Quick service and turnover all done with a friendly atmosphere. William was our server and he was excellent. Good service and humor.... More

We went here for breakfast and was greeted with smiles, orange juice and mini banana nut muffins. Where I am from, they charge for an opening like that. I had a breakfast that had about everything one could get like eggs, pancakes, biscuits and gravy, grits, ham, bacon, and sausage. There was so much food I had enough for another... More

This was our first visit to The Old Mill Restaurant and it won't be our last. We arrived after 1pm and were seated by the window right away, which was nice. Our server was wonderful, friendly, kept our glasses full and constantly checked on us. The fritters they bring to your table were amazing and a must have! The potato... More

We loved it here! It seems a little pricey at first, but when you factor in all you get, it's not that bad. I like to refer to it as all-inclusive dining! Loved the soup, fritters, salad and dessert!

I had the country fried steak and gravy and my husband had turkey and dressing, our little boy had the kids chicken and dumplings. All 3 were delish but next time my husband and I will share a...

This was my first visit to The Old Mill Restaurant in Pigeon Forge. I ordered the vegetable plate. My meal came with complimentary corn fritters with maple butter and a cup of corn chowder. The corn chowder and fritters were amazing. My daughter thought the fritters tasted like pancakes with the special maple butter spread on them. The food is... More

We usually have breakfast here at least once every time we visit the area. Always excellent. The latest visit definitely held up to expectations. Very simple breakfast menu so choices are easy, but you will not be disappointed no matter what the choice. I like the country breakfast with country ham. Not easy on the blood pressure, but it's not... More
