Top 5 Brunch Restaurants

We all love our breakfasts, the towering buttery pancakes, the crispy and salty hashbrowns, the rich omelets stuffed to the brim with every kind of topping imaginable. However, there is equally as much to be said about the wonders of lunch with mouth watering sandwiches and the juicy burgers just begging for you to sink your teeth into them. This is where the beauty of brunch comes in, a perfect mixture of all the best parts of both, wrapped up in a single meal that we can often enjoy with a mimosa or bit of sparkling wine. If you feel this way as well, then make sure you read on about our top five restaurants serving brunch in Pigeon Forge and the Smoky Mountains!

All their food is made only from locally grown farms, allowing their meals to change and fluctuate as the seasons change and different ingredients come and go. For this reason, almost every time you go you are sure to see a new array of meals for you to sink your teeth into, and perhaps enjoy with a perfectly paired wine from their rather large selection. At Red Oak you will find such plates as a charcuterie board with prosciutto, rosemary ham, and salami, or even a meal of sausages, mashed potatoes, and green beans sauteed in balsamic vinegar and garlic. Enjoy your expertly prepared small plates either inside under the cool air conditioning, or outside among the trees so that the sound of nature can play a tune as you eat.
