Description: Ice Cream, Snacks, Cold Drinks, Gem Mine, Light Show, a Relaxing Garden & a Waterfall! This is a great find in the Smoky Mountains. Only 4.5 Miles from Pigeon Forge on Wears Valley Rd but your a world away. Step inside our store and enjoy and enjoy a cold drink or snack on the covered/heated deck overlooking our waterfall or in our garden. The kids we'll LOVE our creekside Gem Mine. You can even get married, hold a family reunion or book a private dinner at our Waterfall! Hours change seasonally and we are closed for the months of January and February.

“Not at all what you are expecting...”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

I read all the reviews and nothing prepared me for the unadulterated quirkiness of this fabulous place! The view is beautiful, the owners are sweet as pie, and the food is scrumptious. Not fancy, not even organized much, but just plain good eats. We got the Wears Valley Wings. So Delish...crunchy, baconey, spicy. I had the Falls dog, with baked beans and their oil & vinegar slaw and a pickle slice on top...so good I want another one right now! Hubby enjoyed his brat as well. You really should stop here even if you don't want to eat. It's that funky and cute.

“Awesome Casual Dining Experience”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Friendly Falls is a unique experience. The restaurant is rustic with a tiny store attached. The hotdogs and root beer that we had were great but the view from the outside decks was absolutely awesome! Cove Creek is a beautiful creek with many falls and cascades along its meandering path. We loved it so much that we purchased a cabin just up the creek.

“Great smoky mountains experience.”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

Tasty food - burgers, hot dogs, pb&j,. VERY tasty fries. But the best thing is the view. It's right on a mountain stream with a magnificent waterfall. Stop - you won't be sorry!
