The food was fantastic and so was the service. Best salad that I have had in awhile. They have an awesome peanut butter pie. We sat outside on the patio and it was very relaxing. We will definitely be back!

The Old Mill Pottery House is on our list of favorite restaurants in Pigeon Forge. The sandwiches and loaded potato soup are delicious. We eat here every time we visit Pigeon Forge (lunch and dinner) and have never been disappointed!

Always the first place we eat when we get to town, and the last meal before we leave. Great fresh baked bread, soups, Chicken Livers, Open faced roast beef, never had anything bad.

The Old Mill Pottery House Cafe is a great place to stop, eat and unwind from a busy day in Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg. The food is excellent. The staff is great and always welcoming. The outdoors dining area is awesome - especially when the weather is good. My wife and I make it a point to eat there at... More

The food here is very very good. Had a wonderful server. He gave us a lot of insight into the food. The place is hopping but is very cozy at the same time. We would definitely eat here again if we were ever in Pigeon Forge. I actually IM'd a friend as we were leaving about the place as she... More

We were told by some friends to eat here and we loved it so much that we went back for breakfast the day that we were leaving to go home. The food is fantastic and we enjoyed everything. They bring out "sharable" family side dishes which have free refills. The meal price included the entrée, extras, as well as dessert.... More

I had the Ruben and fries. Excellent. Heard chicken pot pie was also good. A little loud in the place but good service. Corn chowder and hush puppies were also good.

We make a point of eating at the Old Mill Pottery House whenever we are in Pigeon Forge. However, we never call it by that name. To us it is called the Secret Garden because of the quiet eating area in the back of the cafe. The tomato basil soup was so good that we bought the dry mix at... More

Around 2 in the afternoon. Took 20 minutes to get a table. I ordered the Quiche (Spinach Muenster) with a side salad. It was absolutely delicious. The portions are perfect size of you can't eat much at a time. Definately recommend this place!
