My wife and I returned to Gatlinburg to offer some consumer assistance to its recovery from the fall 2016 fires, and selected Old Dad's and its staff as a focus of some of that attention. Old Dad's (among others) stayed open throughout the fires to provide shelter and sustenance to the fire crews, police, paramedics, and volunteers, and we are... More

While reading the reviews on Old Dad's here on TripAdvisor I envisioned more of a restaurant less of a country store. However this place is very much an old timey true country store that carries a little bit of everything. We stopped in Old Dad's for the purpose of lunch, and I read the food was good and they had...

My sister wanted to go here for the food. The food was just average. I had a hamburger and tater tots while my sister had a grilled cheese and soup. I more enjoyed looking at all the items in this shop. I wouldn't get food here again but I'd come in to check out all the stuff.

Old Dad's is a gem tucked away in a great spot in Gatlinburg! The store has things that you may have forgotten or things that you just may want, They also have a great selection of food and drink items. Parking is easy to get in and out of and the staff is friendly.Go check them out.

We stopped in here for some last minute items that we had accidentally left at home or decided to purchase upon arrival. Super friendly staff, and a great mix of souvenirs as well as a great deli.

Stopped by Old Dad's to just pick up some quick snacks not realizing they had a restaurant inside. Ordered lunch and it was wonderful. The atmosphere is great, staff incredibly friendly and fun and it was very clean as well. We will definitely stop in again on our next trip to the mountains.

Old Dad's is a combination diner and general store. It has a quaint, old time feel about it. We had the Philly Cheeseteak sandwich and Roast Beef sandwich with tater tots on the side. The tots were good and crispy and were a nice change from the usual fries or chips. Our sandwiches were good, but not great. I think... More

After a long day with a need for something good and a great selection, I had the best service and taste of the menu at Old Dad's. I was engulfed by the quiet atmosphere then and now that permeates the surrounds and makes enjoyment of the visit the great experience it deserves.

The owners of this store/deli actually opened this up so that first responders could be fed and given sustenance as they fought the wildfires and worked on the damage all around the city. They actually opened before anyone was allowed back into the city which was amazing and did the community a great service!
