font=Georgia][/font=GeorgiaMy suggestion is Calhoun’s restaurant. There is one location in Pigeon Forge and another location in Gatlinburg. They have the best steaks and chicken. Their food is full of flavor; I have to have the spinach Maria creamed cheesy spinach. One of my friends was lusting over the strawberry shortcake and talked about it the whole way there. . . when she got there they had just sold out. Order your dessert in advance. A really cool thing about Calhoun’s is the atmosphere. It’s very cozy w/ fireplaces in most of the rooms. Hope you enjoy your trip!
Fortunately the Applebarn in Sevierville/Pigeon Forge is a different place. It is alive and doing a huge business.

I ate lunch at the Applewood Farmhouse Grill in November. It was great. Busy, but I didn’t have to wait but a few minutes for a table. My waiter immediately brought an apple julep and apple fritters served with apple butter for dipping. I ordered the Southern Fried chicken (2 pieces) which came with soup, mashed potatoes, choice of vegetable, and biscuit. All this for only $10. It was delicious. I highly recommend it.
We visited Gatlinburg in November and had a great meal at the Applewood Farmhouse Restaurant in Gatlinburg. They start the meal with warm, wonderful apple fritters with apple butter for dipping.
Thanks for all the suggestions!
Apple Barn was intimidating to us at first. Seemingly thousands of diners (not really, but seemingly) and cars everywhere. But it was pretty good.
Second on Apple Barn.
Try the Pancake Pantry directly downtown. They have been there for many years and their breakfast is out of sight. Unfortunately you might have to wait a few minutes as so many find it a great place to go.
You will not be disapointed.
My best choice would be the Apple Barn in Pigeon Forge which is just a few miles away. It is super and I guarantee that their breakfast is by far the best you can get. I have posted about them many times. This place is huge with two restaurants, hotel, wine store, candy store, bakery store, ice cream place and even better than that is it is pretty to enjoy.

We loved a place called the Lamp Post (I think that was the name). It was across from the Park Grill, very near the National Park entrance.
Go to the search function, type in Gatlinburg, and the where should I eat function and you will find a large number of roadfood suggestions. Good luck!
Any Roadfood in Gatlinburg? My husband fondly remembers an Italian place, maybe Pasquales (spelling), where he had a roast beef sandwich he can still taste after 19 years. Does this ring a bell with anyone? I’d love to take him there if it still exists.
