The Most Exciting Places to Eat in Sevierville, Tennessee

From piping hot apple fritters and milkshakes to pimento cheese-slathered burgers and cathead biscuits (and of course, whiskey)

View as Map

Within sight of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the Parkway introduces tourists to a seemingly homogenized scene. But, dig a little deeper and you’ll find the quaint town of Sevierville where the great Dolly Parton was born and raised. Check out the Dolly statue right outside the courthouse, the butterfly mural begging for an Instagram-worthy pose, and the Red’s Diner mural commemorating the first burger Parton ever ate. Dotting her hometown, you’ll also find a host of culinary stops, perhaps legends in their own right.

Serving breakfast through dinner with an extensive orchard on-premise, and views of the Great Smoky Mountains, every meal starts with piping hot apple fritters they’ve actually trademarked. The Southern-style menus are extensive. But, what you won’t find are the libations made from said orchards, as the restaurant is dry. The good news is that the cidery’s tasting room, along with a winery, are right next door within this all-things-apples compound of eateries.
