Their cheesecake makes Cheesecake Factory cheesecake taste like something that came from the frozen food section. The peanut butter was my favorite of the 4 I tried. We iced down 3 slices in the cooler to take home. Flavors will vary from day to day. She will ship to your house. We had the chicken sandwich and the Cuban which were also very good.

We went their just for the cheesecake and got there close to closing time so the selection was small; but it didn't matter! We chatted with possibly the owner and his brother, who was up from Florida, and they were sooooo friendly. We bought a slice of peanut butter cheesecake and a slice of "death by chocolate" to get the Reese's peanut butter cup experience. When I mentioned that they then cut each slice in half and then put them "together" so we could enjoy them that way. That is just AWESOME!! service in my opinion. Do not miss this place!!! :-)

Simply put........If you do not stop here for lunch, you are going to miss out on a great experience. This little deli has stirred up a lot of interest because of the scratch-made, mouth watering cheesecake and the best Cuban sandwich this side of Miami. Very clean and you will not find nicer folks. We have a lot of restaurants in this area, mostly geared to 'get-em-in, get -em-out' service and bland food. If you are headed our way, put this restaurant on the list and come hungry! You will not be disappointed.

We spent a week in the area and didn't visit the Smoky Mountain Cheesecake Cafe until the last day of our trip.Our visit was really only to try out the cheesecake as we were not expecting much for lunch. How very suprised we were. We tried the Cuban sandwich- after reading reviews ofcourse- and was completely suprised at how awesome this sandwich really was. The cheesecake was also great too.
The restruant is a small place past Pigeon Forge in Seiverville, but if in Pigeon Forge it is definatley a must visit. We will definelty be back again when in town. Had we went earlier in the week we would have probably visited this place twice- it was that good. I put three stars for families with childrens, only because its just a great little place to eat- no arcade or kiddie things- but with that said it's an awesome restruant and is what it is- not a touristy kiddie place that is loud and abnoxious. If you are looking for somewhere to eat thats not the normal chain restruant and want some yummy lunch... then give these folks a shout out. It is worth the drive out of Pigeon Forge.

We traveled to Pigeon Forge for the first time in April 2013. We read about the Smoky Mtn. Cheesecake Cafe online (maybe via Trip Advisor?) and we added it to our list of places to stop. We love to support the non-chain establishments when possible.

We stopped in on a rainy afternoon for some dessert. (Keep your eye out, easy to drive by and not realize it) We were the only patrons and ordered a slice of cheesecake for each of us. We chose to eat-in and ended up having a great conversation with the owner--that is why places like this are so fabulous. The cheesecake was awesome. Unfortunately we had already eaten lunch so we did not order any of the food/meals and had every intention of returning before our vacation ended, but did not make it (we were staying at the end of Pigeon Forge, closer to Gatlinburg).

The slices are huge--perfect to share but we still each ordered our own. Very yummy and absolutely worth the stop. Would like to try the cuban and reuben when back in TN. Nothing beats homemade food that isn't served from a frozen ready-made box or can.
