We ate here along with the old mill resturant on our trip to Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge and this little gem was one of our favorite meals. I rathered here over the mill resturant bc it is more of my style (very quaint) and menu choices were different but in a good way. If your looking for a good soup salad or... More

My whole family loved their meals here. I had the shrimp and grits, and it was fantastic. Couldn't believe how much shrimp was in this dish! One thing to note regarding seating: If there's a wait, they'll ask for a cell number to call. We gave them my number and went shopping since we had a 30 min. wait. We... More

The food was great, but honestly, I would have been perfectly happy pigging out on the FABULOUS freshly baked bread they put on the table when we arrived. It was warm and wonderful. I wish I had some now. Our food was great ranging from a steak that got constant yum noises, the salmon, quiche, and fried green tomato BLT.

This is one of the best restaurant experiences my wife and I have ever had. The service was fantastic thanks to Meghan. Our food orders were tremendous. My wife and I both loved her French Onion soup. Prices are low, low. Restaurant itself is beautiful inside and out.

We had dinner here the last night of our vacation, and honestly, I wish we'd come sooner. The food was really, really good. The atmosphere, while a little rustic and a little older, was nice. Very busy and had to wait about 30 minutes to get in, but it was worth the wait. Great menu for dinner, and prices were... More

This restaurant is consistent in offering good food and good service. I had the Old Mill Club and it was very tasty. My friend had the quiche of the day (Ham and Swiss) and was very pleased. The fruit served with it was fresh and good. Worth a visit.

When we arrived in Pigeon Forge, we stopped here for lunch. If you eat here, you receive 2 hours of free parking. That's a good point sort of. The food was good. I had the fried green tomato BLT, my wife had the loaded baked potato soup. My son's chicken fingers were bland and frankly tasteless. Back to the two... More
