Give this place a go, if you need a grocery item or beer. They also make hot foods. This place is very convenient to the Bearskin Lodge.

I hesitate to write this review.Old Dads is maybe the best kept secret in the Smokies.Right downtown in Gatlinburg. Parking is a dream,never await. It's a combination convenient store and small restaurant. They serve breakfast and sandwiches. They will even pack you a lunch for a day in the park. The food is excellent. The prices are unbelievable. Just can't... More

Simply the friendliest staff, the best deli food and a great grocery selection. Smiling faces and souvenirs help make this the best little shop in Gatlinburg. Stop by and feel welcome.

My wife and I stopped here for a quick bite on our way to Cade's Cove. They have a pretty big selection for a general store. The food was good and the service was also good. There is also free parking, that's rare in Gatlinburg. I will definitely return.

We were looking for a place to have lunch before our trip to Cades Cove. We did a search and this place came up as #1. We were surprised because it's a General store... But it was yummy. We had burgers and chili cheese fries. The burgers were great. They were freshly pattied but a little thin. The chili cheese... More

Stopped in here on a whim, needing a few items for back at the condo. The personnel manning the cash register was extremely friendly and helpful. The prices weren’t too bad for this type of small store, and they had odds and ends that you will need and not want to have to drive to a bigger town for.

Oh my goodness !!!! When we come to Gatlinburg, we have to eat here. Some of the very best hamburgers in the world. The customer service is out of this world. Every time we have visited this place, they greet you when you come in and talk with you like they have known you for years. It kinda reminds me... More

Bacon cheeseburger was delicious. Chili cheese fries were large enough for the whole family. It's not really a restaurant just general store with a few tables.

This is such a cool place. They offer just about anything you need while in Gatlinburg. Groceries, drinks, souvenirs, you name it, they probably have it. They also have a deli which I didn't try on this visit but look forward to trying the next time I visit. The staff is very friendly too!
