Vintage style ferris wheel pictureWe’ve already told you about all the fun things to do at The Island in Pigeon Forge, but we understand that with so much fun and excitement it is easy to build up quite an appetite. To help with this, we at Hearthside Cabin Rentals have decided to give our guests a break down of all the delicious Pigeon Forge restaurants that call The Island home.

Mellow Mushroom Pizza Bakers

The original Mellow Mushroom was opened by a couple of Georgia Tech students in 1974, Today the national pizza chain is well-known for bringing guests some of the tastiest pizza in the country. What is special about this particular pizza restaurant is that it is the first Mellow Mushroom to offer solely counter service. Guests order their favorite pizza, calzone of hoagie from the counter then go and pick a seat in the climate-controlled dining area or patio (depending on the weather), and one of the cooks brings your food to your table. This is different from other traditional sit-down restaurant style Mellow Mushrooms. Besides, who isn’t always in the mood for a good slice of pizza?
