Brick & Spoon
We are so excited to announce that this brand new restaurant has finally opened its doors this past weekend. It’s located at 136 Community Center Dr. in Pigeon Forge. According to their website, Brick & Spoon was voted as one of the “top 10 breakfasts in the US” by Travel + Leisure which means this dining establishment must be extremely good! They will be serving breakfast, brunch, and lunch and they’re sure to become a family favorite. Their upscale menu still comes at an affordable price tag and the ambience has a very casual feel to it. Their menu options are something you have not seen in town before, but don’t let that fool you, it’s fantastic. It has a very cajun feel to it and their breakfast choices range from omelets to egg benedicts and then their lunch options include dishes like shrimp & tasso mac and cheese, burgers, and seafood entrees. Best of all, they actually service mimosas and build your own bloody marys which you don’t often see here in town! If you’d like to check out their full menu, make sure to visit their Facebook Page.

Smoky’s Pancake Cabin
If you’ve been coming to the Smokies for a long time, you may remember that we had a Log Cabin Pancake House right before you entered onto the spur from Pigeon Forge heading into Gatlinburg. They had decided to relocate and build a new location, so we now have a new restaurant that has taken over that spot! Their menu is full of all different kinds of pancake dishes, breakfast scramblers, french toast, and they have a few lunch options like a club sandwich, BLT, patty melt, burgers, and more. One of my favorite things about this particular restaurant is they actually have tater tots, yum! If you’re looking for a wonderful Smokies breakfast, this is just the place for you. They are open from 7 am until 1 pm every day.

Located at 2660 Teaster Ln. in Pigeon Forge, this new restaurant is sure to become a new tasty favorite. Don’t let the name fool you, they have some of everything here. They serve gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches, quesadillas, sandwiches, salads, soups, burgers, and much more. Are you ready for the extra good part? They have all kinds of incredible desserts served daily AND you can find actual edible cookie dough as well as other choices like birthday cake, brownies, and many others. They have homemade cookies and cakes and tons of other delectable sweets, it’ll be so hard to stay away from this place once you visit it for the first time. Make sure to check out their Facebook because they update it daily with goodies they’re serving that day that may not even be on the menu! They are open from 11 am – 9 pm, Monday through Saturday and Sundays are 12 am until 6 pm.

They even have warm cinnamon rolls, yes please, I’ll take four! For lunch, they have things like salads, soups, meatloaf, pulled pork, and even some freshly baked desserts! Now let’s talk about supper, one of our favorite meals of the day. They have some smokehouse staples like barbecue ribs, prime rib, and smoked chicken. They also have those Southern favorites like fried chicken, pot roast, chicken and dumplings, stuffed peppers, and more! I might just have to order a bunch of their sides, they look so good. There’s turnip greens, pinto beans, creamed corn, slaw, mashed potatoes, mac and cheese, and everything else you can imagine. This is absolutely a must try whenever you’re in town again.
