We will be visiting Gatlinburg next month for a week. We like to eat at "non-touristy" places such as family owned restaurants and not chain restaurants. Any suggestions for breakfast, lunch and reasonably priced dinners?

LOL, my morning chuckle! I wonder if the OP has ever actually been to Gatlinburg before.

We actually enjoy going up there a time or two each year, but Gatlinburg is just about as touristy of a place as you can get.

Maybe there's some quaint, hidden, undiscovered gems over at nearby Pigeon Forge or Dollywood. Just kidding.

The Apple Barn and the Old Mill are tourist attractions, definitely worth a visit though. The Peddler is expensive. I've been very disappointed by Partridge and Pear twice and will not go back. I suggest heading east, East Parkway that is, towards Pittman Center. This is also the arts and crafts specialty area (Glades Rd) but is not as tourist heavy as the Parkway.

And you can try Wears Valley...321 on the Pigeon Forge side....might not be as tourist heavy ???

Stop in at Mellow Mushroom across the Parkway from Partridge and Pear. MM has great pizza at a reasonable price. There's also a little sports deli in the strip mall behind Mellow Mushroom. Don't recall the name, but they served hotdogs about 83 different ways!

This web site is run by the ad agency that handles all Pigeon Forge marketing. It's not an exhaustive list by any means...but it does have some of the locally-owned shops you're asking about.

Honestly, not sure if you are really going to go anywhere that you aren't going to see tourist. We enjoy going there and Pigeon Forge. We haven't been in a couple years, there was a place called Bubba Gump Shrimp, not sure if it still is there, but someone that is from there might know. Thought that was funny. Automatically think Forrest Gump. Sorry, don't know if it is good, we don't eat sea food. But if it is still there it might be fun to go there because of the name.

Bubba Gump Shrimp Co is a chain as well. So is Mellow Mushroom for that matter. Most of these places are chains or tourist spots. It's the nature of the beast over there.
