I would go back again and again, I enjoyed all of my food and alittle of my Fiance's food too. Being from the country I can tell you that this is some of the best country cooking i've ever had. If you like Cracker Barrel, Try multiplying their food and service by 100. And thats how I would rate Old... More

You must stop to eat here whenever you are in the Pigeon Forge area. Great food at a great price. The best county fried steak I have ever had. Breakfast is always great as well.

We stop at the Old Mill every time we are in the area. For dinner we always leave with enough leftovers for lunch another day. On the way out of town we stop for breakfast. The muffins they bring out while you are waiting on your meal are great, and they have some of the best grits around.

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!
