Mama’s Farmhouse: 6 minutes from Bluff Mountain Adventures

Come Hungry!  That’s all I have to say about this great home cooking family-style restaurant. Family style is my favorite way to eat all-you-can-eat since it means this “mama” doesn’t have to get up from the table over and over.

Instead, the amazing wait staff at Mama’s Farmhouse will bring you ample portions of fried chicken, meat loaf, honey glazed ham, potatoes, sweet potato casserole, fried okra, and those amazing cat head biscuits that we all love in the south! 

For a complete list of menu items and prices visit Mama’s Farmhouse website.

The Old Mill Restaurant: 7 Minutes from Bluff Mountain Adventures 

No one ever goes hungry in Pigeon Forge unless it’s by choice.  Another quintessential Pigeon Forge eatery is The Old Mill Restaurant.  

The food quality isn’t as good as Mama’s Farmhouse in our opinion, but the ambiance and experience of eating on the Little Pigeon River in an old grist mill make up for it.

The Old Mill is one of those must do it once type of things.
