Top 5 Delicious Places to Eat in Pigeon Forge That Kids Will Love

Pigeon Forge is an ideal place to take the kids on vacation, and one of the most important decisions to make is what are the best places to eat in Pigeon Forge for them. With many kid-friendly activities in Pigeon Forge, that also means there are plenty of great restaurants in town that welcome kids too. That should say a lot about the places on this list that we think are the 5 best for kids.

1. Frizzle Chicken Farmhouse Cafe

As you’re being seated at the ​Frizzle Chicken Farmhouse Cafe​, it’ll be hard not to notice the many animatronic characters singing silly songs. It’ll also be difficult not to laugh at what they’re singing, and the kids will giggle along with you as you enjoy a hearty meal at this relatively new establishment in Pigeon Forge that earns its recognition as one of the top places to eat in Pigeon Forge for kids.

2. Big Daddy’s Pizzeria

This place is worthy of being listed as one of the top places to eat in Pigeon Forge, overall, but ​Big Daddy’s Pizzeria​ is also great for kids — and not just because of great pizza. Bring the kids and they’ll get a chance to shape some dough before they take it to the back to wood-fire it up. The arcade inside is also a nice touch to this wonderful kid-friendly environment.

3. Lil Black Bear Cafe

The Lil Black Bear Cafe is a small business open for breakfast and lunch, but it’s a big hit with the kids and worth including as one of the top places to eat in Pigeon Forge for the little ones. The owner is very caring and lets kids do some coloring to be featured on their ​Facebook page​ as members of the Color the Bear Club.

4. Sawyer’s Farmhouse Restaurant

Kids and adults alike love pancakes, but that alone doesn’t necessarily make ​Sawyer’s Farmhouse Restaurant​ one of the top places to eat in Pigeon Forge for kids. Their breakfast offerings for kids are quite generous, but they’ll probably want to try the chocolate chip pancakes. But they’re really more like double chocolate chip pancakes with peanut butter when you throw in chocolate pieces and peanut butter syrup to the masterful kid mix.

5. Marble Slab Creamery

Ice cream is another classic kid treat, and ​Marble Slab Creamery​ will keep your kids loving it after a visit. This place earns a spot on the top places to eat in Pigeon Forge for kids, because they can watch as they mix the ice cream and then choose whatever toppings their hearts desire. It’s a winning combination that gets better when it’s time to eat this cool treat!

We think that the adults in your group would also agree that these are great places to eat in Pigeon Forge as well as the kids. Another thing you’ll all agree on is the level of service and accommodations we provide for you at The Inn on the River. ​Book your room​ now so your kids don’t have to hunger for a chance to enjoy a fun family vacation!
