This restaurant was recommended at one of the national park information locations. They were right! There was a very brief wait, only about 5 minutes. A comfortable table, delicious fresh bread. (They state they grind their own flour, bake their own bread and make their own plates.) The food was delicious, reasonably priced with generous portions. Service good. They also... More

My family and I vacation in Tennessee every year and this is a must stop for us. My son loves the big breakfast and the food is amazing. Huge portions, great prices and a very welcoming atmosphere. It's the first place that we hit when we get into town and the last place we have breakfast before heading home!

Was expecting a wait so we settle onto the patio to listen to a wonderful vocalist - were called to our table just as she started singing! Beautiful voice! Food was great and well presented.

The food was so tasty. My husband chose the buttermilk chicken melt. He said it was very good. It certainly looked tasty. I love roast beef and opted for the... More

My family ate here on our last night of vacation (we have been here before and have always had good experiences). The wait for an inside table was a bit longer than we wanted so we opted for a table on the back patio. There are tables with umbrellas outside next to a bubbling waterfall area which helps create a... More

The Old Mill is a perfect photo location (Beautiful Backgrounds), shopping destination (Great Prices) and additionally some of the best home cooking I've ever eaten in a restaurant! Our group of four enjoyed sharing the food served! Each dish was prepared perfectly and the portions were huge! The service was so fast that we thought the waitress must have the... More
