The Old Mill Pottery House Cafe & Grille
Want to eat where the locals eat? Want unique, different, homemade foods that will leave you salivating for more…especially when you go back home after vacation? We’ve known visitors to come back to Pigeon Forge just because of this restaurant. Seriously, it’s that good. We highly suggest The Old Mill Pottery House Cafe & Grille for lunch. It’s fantastic for dinner as well, but the lunch absolutely cannot be topped by any other restaurant in Pigeon Forge. It’s located across the street from it’s sister restaurant, The Old Mill Restaurant. Don’t let the Pottery House’s size fool you, though…dynamite comes in small packages! Our recommendations are the Original Chicken Reuben and the Pottery House Grilled Club. Also, their Lemonade Pie is a fantastic dessert choice! Or, my favorite, order the chocolate pecan pie and ask them to warm it just a little…amazing!
