The Old Mill Restaurant is legendary in the Smoky Mountains for the hearty, delicious, classic Southern breakfasts, lunches, and dinners. Served family-style, guests are greeted with a basket of mini muffins, our Smoky Mountain Special Preserves, and honey at breakfast; for lunch and dinner, we bring you a basket of fritters and maple butter to start your meal. Folks drive from Michigan, Florida, and beyond to taste our made-from-scratch pies, fritters, biscuits, breads, and homemade dishes.
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 with every meal and in our signature sandwiches. Our mouth-watering homemade desserts are over-the-top tempting and delicious, too; you’ll want to take home a loaf of bread or pie when you leave!
