“Food and Service was Great!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2011

For starters, the corn chowder was "out of this world" and the fritters served with it were so good they'd make your tongue slap your brain. I had the open-faced roast beef sandwich and my wife had the turkey club, which were both Excellent. The service was Good and we are planning on going back to the Smokies soon. The next viisit would not be complete without a visit to The Old Mill.

“Great! see parking info for Oct 2011”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2011

Checked TripAdvisor for a nice lunch spot. So glad I did! I believe this restaurant does lunch and dinner daily. Service was pleasant and quick, we had a nice table inside where we could see outside from every angle. The patio seating was beautiful, but i felt it may be a little cool for me. The fried dill pickle chips are so worth it, chicken almond soup with strawberry spinach salad was delicious. I don't believe you could go wrong with any of the choices. Just like others have mentioned, beautiful landscaping and a great gift shop to browse. Lunch for 2 under $20.

Parking note: for the month of October 2011, this restaurant along with The Old Mill Restaurant is charging $10 to park in the lot behind it. (This is the lot designated for their parking). You will recieve a ticket to use in the restaurant or adjoining gift shop worth $10. They are doing this because of all the activity in the area in hopes of preserving their customers some parking spaces. So don't let parking concerns keep you away.

“Outstanding food, service and atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2011 via mobile

After checking trip advisor for recommendations, we decided to try The Old Mill Pottery House Cafe and Grille. We've now discovered a new favorite place in Pigeon Forge. We dined there for dinner one night and returned for lunch the next day. Outstanding food, service and atmosphere with very reasonable prices. Will definitely go back when in the area!

“Pottery House Cafe and Grille, good food and aesthetically appealing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2011

I went here with family on sunday around 1130 hrs for lunch. I loved the outside seating area (and it was a beautiful day), but the tables were not big enough for our party of eight. We were seated inside near the front of the building, right by the window. For my meal I ate the smokehouse burger, it was quite delicious. Our server was nice, but service was a little slow. After our meal we went around the corner and shopped in the pottery store, and candy shoppe. The cafe and surrounding area is very well manicured and pleasing to look at. I would definetely go back. My one complaint would be that they apparently need to improved their restroom facilities, there was a line outside the womens restroom.
