The Pigeon Forge Mill, also known as the Old Mill, is a historic gristmill in the U.S. city of Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. The mill was initially used to grind grain, mainly corn, wheat, and oat, for local farmers. During the U.S. Civil War (1861–1865), the mill powered several looms which produced cloth for the military. In the early 1900s, a generator was installed at the mill which provided electricity to the area until 1930. Now a souvenir shop and restaurant, the mill has become a popular stop for passing tourists. Sit at tables at the Old Mill Restaurant overlooking the river that flows to the waterwheel, powering the gigantic stones that have ground the restaurants cornmeal and grits since 1830.

Here your taste buds are taken to a new height with their dinner specialties. They are served in lavish portions along with their signature corn chowder, salad, fresh vegetables and dessert. Their famous pecan pies are made from scratch. The whole grains are stone grinded and used for breads, grits, hush puppies, muffins and pancakes. Even the bread crumbs required for fried chicken, cat fish and pork chops are made here. The experience of having a meal at the Old Mill Restaurant is unique and the hospitality of the staff ensures you come back for more.

Ingredients are available on purchase in their general store. From bags of stone ground meal and custom soup mixes to fully prepared jams, jellies, dressing and sauces.

The Old Mill Restaurant, Pigeon Forge Reviews

  • I loved the old mill. The restaurant itself was nice, and even though it was busy we were seated within minutes. My waiter was great, very attentive and friendly. The food was delicious and not too expensive either. On top of that, the old mill has multiple other areas, like a country store and I believe a distillery so after eating we walked around the whole complex. Fun for the whole family, and great if you love history. The mill has been around forever apparently and it was fun to learn about its history.

  • We ate here for my reception dinner. First the food is phenomenal. Not only is the quality superb, but the amount of food is unreal. I suggest that you pace yourself. If not you will be full by the time your main course arrives. Second, the atmosphere is exactly how you would imagine. Third, our waiter was on his game. You could tell he was used to handling large parties. We never had to wait for a refill or service of any kind. He was very personable, prompt, and polite. We will definitely go back!

  • We decided to try because of the great reviews. I’m glad we did! I had the turkey and dressing and my husband had fried chicken. Our lunch was delicious!! Portions were huge - I couldn’t believe it was a lunch portion. And not to mention great prices for the amount and quality. Our server, Mikey, was a joy and provided excellent service! We will have to come back on our next visit.

  • Very nice place! From being the first post office in Pigeon Forge, to being a secret Union Soldier uniform manufacturer during the Civil War, there is so much to discover at The Old Mill. They serve great southern comfort food. You get corn chowder and corn fritters to start off with. Then you get your choice of entree usually served with mashed potatoes and green beans, family style, and then a dessert. It is ALL good.

  • The Old Mill Restaurant is true to it's name and has the exterior of a large mill. I was here part of a group of 10. The hostess told us 20-30 minutes, but our party was called in 10 minutes. Our waiter's name was Blake and he was outstanding. He was very attentive to us and gave us suggestion on items for us to eat. Our drinks were always full and he made sure every part of our meal was perfect. While I would not say the food was the best food I've ever had, Blake more than made up for it for his great service and attitude towards our party.
