Home cooking at its finest ! LARGE portions! Fast service, corn chowder and corn fritters are the best! NOTE: go early for dinner to avoid a long wait , arrive around 4:00pm for faster seating!

My brother-in-law suggested we dine here...We were very leery as a country style restaurant is owned by family members - and as a rule, we never dine out at restaurants that serve country style food.

I never go to Pigeon Forge without eating at The Old Mill. The atmosphere is outstanding and the food is great.

They give large portions and you may still... More

Huge meals! I shared with my sister and we had plenty to eat! The stir fry was great! Loved the corn chowder that came with each meal. Each meal also includes your choice of a yummy dessert!

My family and I went for a late lunch and were most pleasantly surprised. This place is an attraction, a bit of history and a great restaurant all in one. Staff is professional, food is fantastic and prices and portions are great. Had to bring leftovers home. Would definitely go back.

Very nice feel to this place, like an old barn ( it was an old mill). Come early as the line gets long. We were told there would be a 40 minute wait, but only waited 30 minutes. Don't expect fancy food here, just stuff mamma cooked down south! Had the meat loaf, it had be 3/4 lbs of meat!... More
