Old Mill Restaurant

You simply haven’t experienced true Southern Cooking until you’ve sat down to an old-fashioned breakfast, lunch or dinner at the Old Mill Restaurant.

We’re known for our old-fashioned,  classic Southern food;  and we’ve gained reputation as one of the best restaurants in the Smokies.  We’re a favorite local spot and attraction for a day trip to Pigeon Forge, and many of our vacationing guests dine with us regularly during their stays.  

Open Daily  8:00 am - 9:00 pm. We serve breakfast, lunch and dinner everyday!
Breakfast served from 8:00 - 11:00 am
Lunch served from 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
Dinner served from 4:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Dine in our double-tiered, wood paneled dining room that overlooks the Pigeon River.  Located adjacent to the historic Old Mill, it offers views of the great water wheel that powers the mill;  as the massive stones grind grains in the mill, you can watch the wheel turn just below the dam.  And you’ll enjoy some of the stone-ground grits, breads, biscuits, pancakes, and muffins that are made from ingredients ground right next door.

Start your day with a hearty Southern breakfast:  fluffy warm biscuits and muffins, cooked-to- order eggs, pancakes, grits and pepper gravy, sausage, bacon, and more.  For lunch or dinner, you’ll never forget our country-fried steak, sugar-cured ham, pot roast and gravy, chicken and dumplings, chicken potpie, and much more.  All entrees come with Signature Corn Chowder, fresh salad, fresh vegetables and sides served family-style, and homemade desserts. Some of our “secret” recipes can be duplicated at home;  stop by the General Store or the Farmhouse Kitchen to find mixes for our gravy, pancakes, muffins, biscuits, chowder, and much more! Our famous pecan pies are baked from scratch daily at The Old Mill Restaurant, and they are available year ‘round to take home.
