All breakfasts come with Applewood Juleps, Apple Fritters and Homemade Apple Butter. Their juleps are made from several juices including pineapple, apple and orange. Their apple fritters and apple butter are some of the tastiest southern treats you can get. It is worth it to come to one of the Applewood restaurants just for these. People come here and buy bags full of them for takeout.
The kids ordered the silver dollar pancakes which comes with fresh butter and bacon off of the children’s menu for $3.25. We ordered the buttermilk pancakes which were topped with strawberries and whipped cream and a Toad in the Hole with Canadian Bacon for $5.95 each. Their Toad in the Hole is two slices of homemade bread, each with the center cut out, and grilled each slice with an egg in the hole. I fell in love with it at the Applewood Farmhouse Restaurant, but was deeply disappointed at the Applewood Farmhouse Grill. The bread tasted stale. Everyone else loved the pancakes however.
They seem to get you in and out pretty quickly. We tried to change one of our orders within two minutes after the waitress took it and she said it was too late. The food was at our table in about five minutes and we weren’t even finished munching on the apple fritters yet. This is not necessarily a bad thing, but when the restaurant is not busy I like more or the European approach of taking my time at my meals.

During busy times, seating is done a room at a time. All tables in the same room are seated at the same time, making it easier for the server to provide their great service. The meals start off with apple julep, apple fritters, and apple butter, all of which are not to be beaten. This is followed by salad, then soup, main course, then dessert. The main choice courses include many good old country cooking standards, such as chicken pot pie, country fried steak, trout, catfish, and several others. Desserts tend to lean towards the apple theme and on this visit I had apple cobbler that melted in the mouth. All of this is for one price, the highest on the menu was $13.95.
While waiting to be seated (I have never waited for more than 45 minutes and was seated immediately on this visit) or while digesting your meal, you can sit out in one of the gazebos and enjoy the scenery of the surrounding orchard, or watch the tranquil stream flowing on the other side of the street, often with ducks nearby. Or you may shop in the Apple Barn itself for many apple themed crafts, gifts, and souvenirs, or pick up a jug of fresh apple cider.

The food was delicious and plentiful. After you place your order, they bring extras, including delicious apple fritters. My husband and I had to ask for doggie bags, as did everyone else we saw coming out of the restaurant.
The restaurant is set in an apple orchard and has several gift shops, an ice cream parlor, and other things of interest to wander through.

Apple Valley Road, where this restaurant is located, is off the Parkway just north of the boundary between Sevierville and Pigeon Forge. There are two similar restaurants on this road: the Applewood Farmhouse Grill, the first one you come to, and the Applewood Farmhouse Restaurant, the second. The food is the same -- the Restaurant meals tend to be all-inclusive and more expensive, while the Grille meals are less expensive but some items such as dessert must be purchased as extras. Child-size portions are available.
