Very reasonable prices for this area. Good service. The food is fresh. They serve sour dough bread hot from the oven.

My daughter and I eat here every year we come up for our annual trip to the mountains. Please don't overlook this little gem. The food is excellent. The pottery is great and the desserts are not to be missed even if you have to take it home to eat later.

One of our must stop places to dine when visiting the Smokies. The servers and food are always top notch. Homemade bread, mmmmm. The patio was open, always love dining outside with the water feature and beautiful flowers.

They not only make their food there but they make their own plates too. Very cute atmosphere. I highly recommend the chicken almond quiche and loaded potato soup.

No matter how tired you are, the fresh baked bread starts the meal off right. The entrees and service were excellent. The entertainment (mamma duck led her babies across the patio and allowed each one to go for a dip before she led them out again) seemed like it had been planned just for us.

Best Restaraunt in Pigeon Forge. I had the pecan encrusted with french toast moonshine fried chicken salad and loaded baked potatoe, best meal ever. Great dressed salad. My husband had the black and blue chopped steak with jalepino corn chowder and salad he loved it. Our waitress Brooke was so nice. The homemade bread was delicious. Great place for dinner... More

This restaurant is constant in its service and food. Both are excellent....and their home made bread is a must to take home. We don't do desserts as a rule, but the pies look wonderful. Sometime we are going to stop just for pie and coffee.
