Celebrity chef Paula Deen opened a new restaurant concept in the Smoky Mountains. Located on The Island in Pigeon Forge near Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Paula Deen’s Family Kitchen serves breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The nearly 20,000-square-foot location also includes a 4,000-square-foot store. Paula Deen’s Family Kitchen features 300 seats providing each guest a front row seat to The Island Show Fountain and a panoramic view of the Great Smoky Mountains in the distance. The facility features a replica of Deen’s home kitchen for special events, samplings and personal appearances.
