Third time here, tired of the hit and miss eating. We just ate at Tokyo something or other with knife and spatula acrobatics, that was good, what else is GTG?

In Pigeon Forge There is the Mill and Apple Barn.


Both are good.

Cherokee grill in downtown Gatlinburg is one of my favorites, and don't miss the Pancake Pantry in Gatlinburg as well for breakfast. Get there early, and bring cash, they don't take cards.

Alamo Steakhouse - if you like big steaks.

When you get to the Apple Barn, there are two restuarants, got to the one towards the back. They also have a gift shop. Pick up some of their apple butter.

Applewood Farmhouse in Seivierville (sp?) is just north of Pigeon Forge. I also liked Huck Finn's Fried Catfish, I believe that was also in Pigeon Forge.

In Gatlinburg itself I liked Bennett's BBQ and of course the two big pancake houses, Flapjack's and Pancake Pantry.

You may want to PM FJ Wheeler as he was very helpful in a thread in the TN Hometown forum when this question last came up.

Be careful where you eat. I was there a few weeks ago and on the local TV they were talking about a lot of the places having Health Inspection violations. Since we rented a cabin, we just ate there. The National Park is great but that place is a tourist trap for sure.

Bennett's BBQ. Get the sampler

Was there last year.

The whole place is weird. I'd drive somewhere not weird.

This, although I swear Flapjack's is better than Pancake Pantry.

Family dining? O'Charley's doesn't suck. Step up from Chili's and TGI Friday's. Not hard on the wallet.

ETA: Great beer specials too.
Link Posted: 8/8/2011 3:23:10 PM EDT
I remember the Park Grill being fabulous. The salad bar there was excellent, too.

Alamo Steakhouse had the worst piece of horseflesh I ever tried to eat.


Cherokee Grill has a damn good NY strip, though. Calhoun's is pretty good.



Be sure to get some Ole Smoky Moonshine, they also give FREE SAMPLES.

The Peddler is THE place to eat in Gatlinburg.

Steaks cut to order at your table.

I thought so as well. The applewood smoked bacon at Flapjack's was much thicker and nicer than the bacon at Pancake Pantry.

You may as well do the ARF thing and go to both ... that's what I did.

ate at the apple barn a few weeks ago it was awsome..
Link Posted: 8/9/2011 11:37:55 AM EDT
We had Pancake Pantry for breakfast, I had the morning star, with a side of bacon. How is Dick's Last Resort? We've got Dixie Stampede planned for later.

I was not too impressed with most of the food, but the apple fritters and apple butter appetizer is fookin' AMAZING! stop by the winery while you're there.

The Alamo Steak House was expensive enough that we literally walked out. Something like $10-15 bucks for a single appetizer. Fuck that.

Pancakes. Lot's of pancakes.

The Peddler is awesome.
Very good food, service, and ambiance. Make reservations and ask for a table near the window overlooking the stream.

DO NOT eat at the Bear Creek Grill.

It is way overpriced and the food sucks.

MAN LITTLE TOYKO IS 2 MINUTES FROM ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!­!!!!!!



That said ......Best Italian in Gatliburg is good...stay away from the veil though.....
Melting Pot if you want Fondue
Peddler for steak
The Diner on 66 is good.
La Carreta for cheap Mexican

Let me know what you want and I will point you in the right direction.

Brewery is also good.


Edit just saw you were going ot Dixie.....you won't eat anything better the entire trip. But if you need anything while in town shoot me a PM and I will see what I can do to help you out.
Link Posted: 8/9/2011 12:27:28 PM EDT
What is with all the pancake places down there anyway? I have never seen so many concentrated in one area in my life.
Link Posted: 8/9/2011 12:35:10 PM EDT
It doesn't look like much from the street, but my Wife and I get excellent steaks at Howards.
Link Posted: 8/9/2011 12:39:08 PM EDT
The Peddler, The Park Grill and The Smokey Mountain Brewery



The Peddler & The Park Grill are both very good. Same owners.

Smokey Mountain Brewery has great beer and pizza. Get the beer sampler for starters.


As others have mentioned, there are a lot of weird places too. You will see advertisements for a lot of other "great" restaurants in the area that are not so great.

This is the first place we eat when we visit Gatlinburg. The pizza is awesome and the beer is really good as well.

Those are the only two places that I can remember off the top of my head. Bubba Gump Shrimp was really good but I think it's a national chain restaurant (maybe?).

Another vote for the Apple Barn in Severville. Like another poster said go to the restaurant all the way in the back.

If you're still looking for places to eat i recommend:

http://www.oldmillsquare.com/restaurant.htm Its like cracker barrel on steroids.

http://www.bestitalian.com/ They're really good and they've got some kind of garlic rolls as an appetizer that are amazing.

So it'd be a good place to go in mid July, assuming your throat was dry?
Link Posted: 8/9/2011 4:25:46 PM EDT
I was there last month for a week for a family reunion thing and thought the area was neat.

Bubba Gump was pretty good.

There is a metric ton of pancake places it was freaking crazy.

Dixie Stampede oddly enough had pretty good food if you want a campy dinner show.

The Diner across the street from Kroger off the main drag was pretty good and cheap.

The Donut Friar at 6 in the morning is great.

I personally enjoyed the meal at The Alamo.

ETA: Just got back from Gatlinburg last week. It may be a tourist trap, but I've taken my kids there the last two years since they could walk. My little girl pined only for the cheap necklace at the ripoff store in the Mountain Mall, but she'll remember her dad getting it for her forever. If it makes me a tourist, so be it! Love Gatlinburg!

The Old Mill is our favorite place to eat in the area. The food is good, plentiful and reasonably priced.

Can you say more about the weirdness of the area? We're planning to go to that area, rent a nice cabin, and hit Dollywood next year. Is this a big mistake?

Is best Italian better than Olive Garden? My wife loves OG, especially their Moscato.
