  • Food is fantastic, portions are huge. The service is great. Anyone that goes to pigeon forge needs to dine here at least once. You'll wish you could go more often. Even when there's a wait, they still get you in pretty quick. Home cooking and southern hospitality. The prices are also very reasonable.
  • Absolutely love this place. It is a must eat every trip. But sandwiches and the best pasta salad around. It is a little pricey but well worth it. Oh, and they bake their own bread, it always smells amazing!
  • What a great referral!!! Thanks to some friends, we were made aware of this awesome southern comfort food stop! Make sure you have time to enjoy enormous portions of great southern style cooking
  • First of all, this location is absolutely beautiful year around. It is a huge, old looking building adjacent to a large mill and body of water that is picturesque all 4 seasons of the year. It has an old country feel with wood floors, open wood ceiling with beams, and windows over looking the water and Pigeon Forge. Most everything is served family style and includes made from scratch apple fritters, their corn chowder soup, a side salad with made from scratch dressing. The sides are all you can eat mashed potatoes and green beans, and rolls on the side. I have the fried chicken every time we dine there. You get 3 large breasts and it is fried with a southern style crispy crust. Your dessert is included - pecan pie is my favorite. There is almost always a wait so you have plenty of time to stroll around the area and visit all the little shops where you can even purchase the fritter mix and the soup mix. Their pecan pie dry ingredients are also sold in a mason jar with instructions to bake their pie at home. So yummy!
  • Pleasantly surprised at the size of portions they gave you with your meals. Everything in Pigeon Forge is expensive, but the Old Mill gives you a great value for the price. Would definitely return. Our waiter was quick on drink refills, the food tasted excellent, and they even gave you dessert with your meal. Great for families!
