The Old Mill Restaurant is legendary in the Smoky Mountains for the hearty, delicious, classic Southern breakfasts, lunches, and dinners. At breakfast, guests are greeted with a basket of mini muffins, our Smoky Mountain Special Preserves, and sourwood honey. When we serve lunch and dinner, we bring you a basket of fritters and maple butter to start your meal and serve your vegetables family-style. Folks drive from Michigan, Florida, and beyond to share our tables and savor homemade comfort food, including our made-from-scrach pies, fritters, and fresh baked biscuits and yeast breads.
Sit at tables overlooking the river that flows to the waterwheel next door, powering the gigantic stones that have ground our cornmeal and grits since 1830. Across the street at The Old Mill Pottery House Café & Grille, enjoy a picturesque dining experience with creatively prepared and beautifully presented Southern foods. We serve fresh-baked bread from our in-house bakery in our signature sandwhiches and with every meal. Our mouth-watering homemade desserts are legend; you’ll be tempted to take home a loaf of bread or pie when you leave!
