Delicious Friday night seafood buffet My favorites were shrimp & grits, creamed corn cornbread, clam chowder, shrimp cocktail, & the Caesar salad was excellent. They had several fish dishes, steak, pork, fried chicken, and carved turkey with mashed potatoes and gravy. And the desserts were delicious. They have an apple crumble cheesecake pie that is heavenly. We arrived around 5:00 and it wasn’t busy at all. Delicious and well worth the price 👏 my fiancé is driving trolley for the DreamMore Resort this summer. Randy Gauthier and I loved the buffet. Lara Tant

Gatlinburg
About the restaurant
Gatlinburg's best kept secret! We're serving up comfort food done right! Get ready for the authentic taste of the south with southern cooking and comfort foods we all love. Now open for breakfast! Great home-cooked meals meet sweet Southern style with our newest collection of decadent comfort food from the South, now at Southern Comfort! Here, the cuisine leans toward the low-country, and caters towards the Cajun in all of us, with rustic, creole, and good old fashioned Southern home cooking bursting in every bite.

From shrimp and grits to chicken and dumplings, our Southern cooking deserves to be kept on the family table for generations to come, so come on in, dig on in, and sit for a spell while we do the cookin’… because everyone needs a little Southern Comfort.

We enjoyed our time but it was just really loud while trying to eat dinner. We will come back for sure but probably not dinner, just a snack, although the food was really good. The service was good and they were very helpful helping us decide on how many points we should buy for our three kids.

In seven days in pigeon forge this was the best experience. And Tonya was the nicest waitress of the trip. She absolutely knows southern hospitality and I was happily surprised at just how nicely we were treated.

Our one and only disappointment was that Mimi's doesn't serve wine. The Google Maps review doesn't divulge this. In fact, it has a wine list from an older menu. We would have easily increased our bill by $20-$30 had wine been available.
