The Old Mill Pottery House Café & Grille offers a picturesque dining experience in the Smoky Mountains. Located in the former home of Pigeon River Pottery’s founding potter, Douglas Ferguson, original stone floors line the dining room and the large stone fireplace provides warmth and atmosphere during chillier months. When weather permits, ask for a table outside on the patio beside the small pond lined with cheerful plants. For lunch and dinner, we serve quality steaks, grilled salmon, fresh local trout, and Southern comfort foods. Other menu items include garden fresh salads made to order, delicious sandwiches, burgers, hearty homemade soups and fresh-baked breads made with wholesome grains stone ground at our historic Old Mill. Finish your meal with a slice of cake or pie made from scratch on site in our bakery. Our plates, bowls, salt shakers and even our bathroom sinks are handcrafted by our skilled artisans next door at The Old Mill Pigeon River Pottery. Come and experience our quality and our heritage and see why we are rated #1 in the Smokies on trip advisor.
