Dining

Is the Paula Deen Restaurant in Pigeon Forge Worth It?

I find that people have really strong opinions about Paula Deen’s restaurant in Pigeon Forge. Some people really, really love it.

Others … not so much.

First of all, you could say that this restaurant is one that might feel out of place in the area. After all, Deen is a Georgian at heart. But her family-style restaurant is one of the more unique dining experiences in the Smoky Mountains area.

When I visited, I took my mom to eat at Paula Deen’s for a Sunday lunch and only had to wait about 15 minutes.

That being said, if you show up for dinner during the busy season, I have heard the wait times can be somewhere in the neighborhood of about three hours.

Do you need reservations at Paula Deen’s restaurant in Pigeon Forge?

Paula Deen’s Family Kitchen in Pigeon Forge does not accept reservations.

During the busy season, remember that you’ll want to put your names down as soon as possible. You can always explore The Island a bit while you wait.

Since our wait was short, I spent a few minutes shopping around the Paula Deen store on the first floor, which is full of Southern memorabilia and cookbooks with Deen family recipes and other retail items.

When our table was ready, we went up the escalator to wait in another line and checked in at a desk.

Then we waited in a third line for our party to be called.

It sort of feels like waiting for a ride at an amusement park — the kind where you think you’re about to get on, but instead, around the corner, you find another section of line.

It’s quite the operation for a restaurant. But for the most part, it moves pretty smoothly.

The most important thing to know about this restaurant is that it features family-style dining, which means everyone at your table must agree on the main entrees and sides.

This way, I suppose, it feels more like home cooking.

For lunch and dinner, there are three main choices, The Albany, The Savannah and The Georgia – which is a fancy way of saying you can pick two, three or four entrees from the menu, respectively.

Is Paula Deen’s Family Kitchen worth the price? 

To be honest, I wasn’t completely blown away by the food, but it’s not all bad.

One of my favorite things about the restaurant is its location. Depending on your seat, you have a good chance of having a great view of The Island in Pigeon Forge or perhaps even the fountain show.

Another bonus is that the food has unlimited helpings. Just note that you can’t take them home with you at the end of your meal.

And as a lovely final touch, everyone gets to pick their own dessert.

Perhaps my absolute favorite thing about dining here was the complimentary biscuits. Those delicious, flaky biscuits alone are worth a return trip.

Okay, so what’s the bad news?

Well, just about every restaurant has its cons list and this one is no exception.

Personally, I find that the family-style spread doesn’t necessarily feel super practical.

If someone in your party has food allergies or dietary restrictions, it can be difficult to find something that can work for everyone. And in case you’re wondering, kids don’t get their own special menu items, either.

I understand that we’re supposed to feel like we’re gathered around for a traditional meal at home, but I find customization one of the main perks of eating out.

Also, most of the food is just OK. For example, I really enjoyed my order of Georgia Fried Catfish.

But we also ordered Chicken and Dumplings. I didn’t try them because I have an allergy to peanuts and we were told that the chicken from the Chicken and Dumplings is the same as the Best Ever Southern Fried Chicken, which is fried in peanut oil.

And look, maybe that waitress was mistaken. But if that’s true, even I know that traditional, Southern chicken and dumplings are not made with fried chicken.

But even without this interesting bit of info from our waitress, my mama was not a fan of that entree. She said it did not taste authentic. Or, at least not authentic for Tennessee.

For the sides, we ordered the broccoli casserole, creamed corn, creamed potatoes and mac and cheese. For the main dishes, we ordered the fried catfish and chicken and dumplings (photo by Alaina O'Neal/TheSmokies.com)

What are the best sides at the Paula Deen restaurant?

From Paula’s famous sides, I recommend creamed potatoes, creamed corn or baked mac and cheese. Those were the most delicious side dishes to me.

We also tried the broccoli casserole and I found it to be just okay.

If you want something classic, try the poppyseed tossed salad, green beans or fried okra. Or if you want something more simple, you could go with the buttered white rice.

What else is on the menu at Paula Deen’s Family Kitchen?

I haven’t visited Paula Deen’s for breakfast yet, but considering how good the biscuits are, I am willing to bet it’s good.

The breakfast menu lets you pick three Down Home Dishes, one breakfast meat and then two breakfast treats. The main dishes include options like Chicken and Biscuits, Sweet Piggies in a Blanket, Ooey Gooey Butter Pancakes and Apple Cinnamon French Toast.

The breakfast meats include black pepper bacon, country ham, sausage links and Applewood smoked center cut bacon.

Finally, the treats include hashbrowns casserole, fried potatoes, sausage and gravy, cheesy grits and fresh fruit.

The lunch menu is the same as the dinner menu.

You’ll find classic dishes including some options we already talked about and Beef Pot Roast, Chicken-Fried Pork Chop, Spare Ribs and Roasted Chicken.

How much does it cost to eat at Paula Deen’s?

Breakfast is the most affordable meal at $16.99 per person.

For lunch, the pick-2, or The Albany, starts at $19.99 per person and the pick-3 is $21.99 per person. The pick-4 entree is $23.99 per person.

The dinner menu is the same, except you can expect to add about $5 per option.

Kids aged 3-5 can dine for $4.99 while kids 6-10 can dine for $11.99 for both lunch and dinner at the time of this writing.

Does it cost to get into The Island in Pigeon Forge?

Nope, it’s free! Visitors at The Island will find that there is no cost to ride the tram, park or enter The Island.

However, once you enter, you’ll likely be tempted to pull out your wallet to dine and shop.

Still, it’s the perfect spot to get around and explore a bit.

If you’re interested in trying Paula Deen’s restaurant, remember to plan ahead. Overall, it’s a good option if you enjoy family-style dining and know what to order.

The restaurant’s classic Deen family recipes were birthed from the same recipes that launched Paula Deen’s career.

Every Southern-style entree, side dish and dessert comes from Paula’s cookbooks.

Paula Deen has even been spotted visiting this location on The Island to greet guests and train kitchen staff.

The restaurant is located at 131 The Island Dr #8101, Pigeon Forge, TN.

21 best restaurants in Sevierville TN [2023]

On the map, the West Prong of the Little River divides Sevierville from Pigeon Forge. 

It’s the same as many of the imaginary borders we use to divide our world into sections, arbitrary and relatively meaningless except for man-made concepts like politics, regulations and taxes. 

In the real world, unless you saw the sign, you’d have no reason to know that you’d crossed from Sevierville into Pigeon Forge or vice versa. Right there along the city boundaries, there’s very little practical difference between the two. 

But it may surprise you to know that Sevier County’s seat is more than just the business end for its two more wild and free siblings, Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge.

Years ago, Sevierville siphoned off the best of the county’s shopping – particularly the outlet businesses that had helped make Pigeon Forge strong.

Is Sevierville close to Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge?

Sevierville is closer to Pigeon Forge, near the heart of the Great Smoky Mountains. It’s right at the border of Pigeon Forge and about 30-40 minutes from Gatlinburg.

Sevierville siphoned off a major piece of Pigeon Forge’s bread and butter with its shopping outlet, but a funny thing happened to the rest of the city. Sevierville’s food scene became something of a natural balance to Pigeon Forge. 

Now, another movement is well underway. In particular, Sevierville is THE place to go in the county for foodies. 

It’s strange. 

When I first moved to East Tennessee, Sevierville was nothing more than the town you had to drive through to get to Pigeon Forge. As the county seat, it had the courthouse and the jail but nothing that would draw people to town who didn’t have specific business there. 

That’s not the case anymore.

Wild-eyed artists with little more than a spatula and a dream found a home in the burgeoning Sevierville food scene.

As of late, Sevierville is a good place to find great food.

So, if you’d like to get away from the culinary version of a classic rock station, drive up north of the West Prong and see what Sevierville has to offer. 

Below, you will find my personal ranking of the best restaurants in Sevierville.

21. Flapjack’s Pancake Cabin

Look, we had all this build-up about cracking the eggshell that is Pigeon Forge culinary homogeny, but you still got to eat breakfast.

Breakfast items are the one area in which Sevierville restaurants lack options compared to Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge.

Culinary artists, it seems, aren’t as jazzed at getting up at 4 am to make a bunch of hash brown skillets. Still, pancakes and waffles are big business in Sevier County and Flapjack’s is a great place to get ’em. 

It’s comfort food for your breakfast-lovin’ soul.

20. Holston’s Kitchen

Next, we have Holston’s Kitchen. Holston’s Kitchen made the cut on our best Sevierville restaurants list for its variety of menu options and massive portion sizes.

At Holston’s, you can get anything from Greek salads to TexMex to Italian cuisine to steaks and everything in between.

Try the Fried Green Tomatoes while you’re there – a Southern staple.

Just be sure to come hungry as portion sizes are generous.

19. Big Daddy’s Pizza

Everything is fresh at Big Daddy’s Pizzeria, where their wood-fired flame creates unique handcrafted Italian works of art.

The pizza is delicious, but it’s not unique to Sevierville. They also have locations in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg.

Of course, they are best known for their pizza but also offer sandwiches, salads and apps.

18. Fort Worth Texas Kitchen

Fort Worth Texas Kitchen is a newcomer on the Sevierville food scene.

Their dinner menu features a variety of TexMex style favorites at affordable prices.

17. The Diner

One of the premier attractions to Sevier County over the decades has been the car culture.

In particular, from the Rod Runs to cruising up and down the strip, the 50s/60s American graffiti vibe is a big part of the social fabric of the area.

At The Diner, get a patty melt, some onion rings, french fries, green beans, a chicken tender basket and a big ole shake.

It’s not culinary artistry. Certainly, it’s not Picasso at the grill. But it’s one of the best places in the Smokies for a traditional diner experience.

It’s good and fun and classic and there’s a place in any good food culture for those things, too.

16. Roll On In

Roll On In is a unique, casual concept but it delivers when you need quality food fast.

You can order from a selection of specialty bowls and burritos or completely customize your own creation.

It’s a bit like a Chipotle but for sushi and hibachi. And it’s genuinely great.

gatlinburg brewing company

15. Gatlinburg Brewing Company

Here, my friends, we may well have found genius.

Founded by a man who discovered his passion for brewing at an Outkast concert – I want to make an Outkast reference here to prove how hip I am but I’ll just say that if I were a professional baseball player my walk-up music would be “So Fresh, So Clean”.

With two locations, the Gatlinburg Brewing Co. offers craft beers, pub-style appetizers and truly delicious pizza.

Pizza varieties include Dirty Hippie, Hangover Helper, Betty White and Basic AF.

applewood farmhouse grill

14. Applewood Farmhouse Grill

The Apple Barn is one of our favorite places to frequent and it happens to be home to another popular restaurant: Sevierville’s Applewood Farmhouse Restaurant.

Located right on the line with Pigeon Forge, the Farmhouse is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner offerings. The fare is what you’d expect from a farmhouse restaurant – fried chicken and roast and meatloaf and such but with a few surprises as well. 

It’s all amazing food that the whole family will enjoy.

And don’t leave until you’ve sampled the chicken pot pie, chicken and dumplings, pot roast and apple fritters for a sweet treat with a side of homemade apple butter and apple julep.

This one is a local favorite.

Comida Hondureña Yobanina is a Honduran restaurant located in a gas station near the Tanger outlets.

This is the perfect place to go when you want to add a little spice to your diet. 

graze burgers exterior

12. Graze Burgers

Sometimes you just want a delicious burger. Graze is the place, featuring all grass-fed beef burgers with no hormones, antibiotics or steroids.

This is not your typical burger fare. For example, try the Local Farmer with aged cheddar, house bacon, a fried egg, local greens, onions, tomatoes and house pickles.

I’m gonna be honest. Any place that has its own pickles is gonna be alright in my book.

11. The Hippie BBQ and Grill

The Hippie BBQ is a new restaurant in the area. It’s a 1970s-themed sports bar that specializes in BBQ, burgers and wings.

It’s definitely a contender for some of the best BBQ in the area.

10. Seasons 101

For the record, this is not a freshman-level meteorology course. It is a self-described culinary experience.

Seasons 101 is located in the heart of downtown Sevierville, TN at the Historic Central Hotel. It is a comfortable, casual dining atmosphere, combined with upscale cuisine at moderate prices.

The season determines how the menu selections are curated. “An ever-changing selection of signature dishes and cocktails inspired by the current season is the heart of our dining philosophy.” 

And whatever the season, the food is, in fact, always good. 

Five oaks Farm Kitchen

9. Five Oaks Farm Kitchen

For symmetry purposes, I should have ranked this fifth. But let’s move past that.

Five Oaks Farm Kitchen lives up to the name. Run by the family of Dr. John (not the Iko, Iko guy) and Blanche Ogle who originally owned and operated the family farm, Five Oaks is probably the best of the region’s farm-house style restaurants.

I’d recommend something from the smokehouse – but that may be my general preference for smoked meat talking. The fried okra is also a must.

8. El Primo Products Hispanos

If you’re looking for the same-old Tex-Mex that gets slung in restaurants from here to the border this isn’t the place.

In fact, if the idea that the best Mexican food is served in the back of a Hispanic grocery store is a surprise to you, this might not be your place.

However, if you want to eat something with authentic flavor? This is your place. They have all the classics like quesadillas, tacos, fajitas and queso.

7. Trotter’s Whole Hog BBQ

This BBQ restaurant is another new addition to the growing downtown Sevierville foodie scene.

The menu features appetizers like pimento cheese, pork rinds and burnt ends as well as meat plates and a variety of smoked sandwiches with banana pudding for dessert.

It’s conveniently located on Bruce Street.

6. Pinchy’s Lobster

Pinchy’s Lobster is bringing New England seafood to the Smokies.

Freshly opened downtown, they offer fresh sushi, lobster, a raw bar, a beer garden and live music on select nights.

5. Bustin’ Butts BBQ

Delicious BBQ made fresh daily. It’s served on paper plates with beans, potato salad, smoked mac and cheese or coleslaw.

There are also a few outdoor picnic tables if you want to eat on site, but you can call ahead and pick it up to go.

4. Preacher’s Smokehouse

The menu? Written on a chalkboard on the wall. The proprietor? A real-life preacher named Sam Steele.

The Food? Oh. My. God.

Get the burnt ends. And get the three meat meal – which comes with two sides for $15. Get everything.

Indeed, this is the kind of place barbecue foodies dream about. Hours are limited, so plan ahead.

3. Aubrey’s

Aubrey’s is an interesting case study. It’s part of a popular East Tennessee restaurant group that is professional, consistent and good if not great. 

I’m a fan of the Pizza Rockefeller, the Hawaiian Ribeye and the Strawberry Pecan Salad.

2. The Chop House

This is an upset of sorts.

I love The Chop House which is run by East Tennessee restaurant royalty.

Everything is great. It’s done to perfection every time. It has been – in my opinion – the best place to eat in Sevierville for years. So why is it No. 2? Well…

The Appalachian

1. The Appalachian

Finally, if we’re honoring Sevier County’s burgeoning foodie community, we must recognize the new guard.

The Appalachian is one of Sevierville’s newest restaurants, serving up delicious food, fine dining style.

They specialize in bringing a modern approach to traditional Appalachian ingredients and dishes.

Dishes change with the season. For instance, the Wood Grilled Pork Chop has sea island red pea, long grain rice, smoked tomato broth and green onion.

At the time of this writing, prices range from $18 for the Appalachian Burger to about $90 for the 48 oz. Tomahawk Ribeye.

Certainly, The Appalachian represents an artfulness, a thoughtfulness to the culinary sciences that challenges the idea of what Appalachian cuisine can be.

1. Pinchy’s Lobster (Sevierville)

This new restaurant will offer fresh seafood and beer.

Expected to open “in a pinch,” Pinchy’s will offer New England-style seafood with lobster rolls, Maine oysters, clam chowder and bisque.

Pinchy’s is part of the growing food scene in downtown Sevierville where the venue is expected to also feature live entertainment in the beer garden.

Certainly, it will be the ideal location to have a great meal and experience the growing downtown Sevierville scene with great food and live music.

Another addition to the growing downtown Sevierville foodie scene, Trotter’s Whole Hog BBQ is now open.

The menu offers appetizers featuring pimento cheese, pork rinds and burnt ends as well as meat plates and a variety of smoked sandwiches with banana pudding for dessert.

The meat plates include a choice between rub chicken, spare ribs, short ribs and housemade smoked sausage.

With Pinchy’s and The Appalachian – one of the best restaurants in East Tennessee – offering fine dining downtown, the face of the Sevier County food scene is changing. Good times are happening in downtown Sevierville.

Azul Cantina Pigeon Forge Under Construction

3. Azul Cantina (Pigeon Forge)

Located on Teaster Lane, Azul is another restaurant set to open soon.

Billed as a flavorful twist on traditional Tex-Mex dining, Azul promises wood-fire grilling methods and traditional Mexican cooking styles with roots from South America to Texas.

Throw in homemade Cerveza-style lager and a variety of hand-crafted cocktails made with top-shelf tequilas, Azul will be destination dining with the first rooftop bar in Pigeon Forge.

Featuring real-deal food, this is almost certain to be one of the best new restaurants in East Tennessee. 

Azul Cantina has been teasing an opening for months now, but the restaurant posted a construction update on its social media page last month, showing considerable progress.

It is in the same area as Downtown Flavortown, another fairly new restaurant in the area from Guy Fieri that offers a tiki bar, arcade games and duckpin bowling.

4. Cumberland Jack’s (Gatlinburg)

This restaurant opened in the fall and received quite a buzz on social media.

Cumberland Jack’s, from the same folks who brought you Crockett’s Breakfast Camp, offers Southern staples like beef liver and onions, ham steak, corned beef and cabbage, pot roast, fried chicken, mountain trout, fried catfish, smoked chicken, pork chops, pulled pork, meatloaf and pork ribs.

Their signature trademark is the complimentary lil’ mug of soup. Between the good service, delicious soup and rolls, this restaurant is a real treat.

5. Pizza-Rio (Pigeon Forge)

Pizza-Rio is a wine and bar expected to open soon in the Pigeon Forge.

But it’s not just any pizza place. Pizza-Rio is offering Brazilian-style eats with hand-crafted sangrias and cocktails.

One of the main differences in Brazilian-style pizza is the crust, which is traditionally very thin and closer to the Italian style of pizza.

The restaurant will be located near the Hollywood Wax Museum along Showplace Blvd.

Carrying brands like Sweetwater, Yeehaw, Sierra Nevada and more, there will be something for everybody at this new venue.

Notably, there are more than 50 beers on tap as well as tasty food options.

The venue will also offer live music on select dates as well as a large outdoor seating area. The Neighborhood Beer House is located at 1448 Winfield Dunn Parkway in Sevierville.

B51 is a new chicken Peruvian restaurant in the Smokies. Menu selections offer treats like the Burguer Royal, a half-pound burger with lettuce, tomato, cheddar, plantains, sunny-side-up farm eggs, and Peruvian mayonnaise on ciabatta.

The Chaufa Rice with fried basmati rice, red bell peppers, onions, ginger root, eggs, cooked chicken and oyster sauce also looks delicious.

B51 is located at 1304 Parkway, Suite 101 in Sevierville.
