We can’t begin to tell you how excited we are that the season is changing in East Tennessee and here in the Great Smoky Mountains! Our beautiful farm and orchards are in full bloom and the sights, sounds, and smells of spring and summer are incredibly vivid! You can feel the excitement at Applewood Farmhouse as we prepare for the summer season and the anticipation of seeing so many of you who travel to visit and dine with us each year. Our pet-friendly patio is open, we’re booking our summer entertainment, and we are so excited to move into the most relaxing and laid-back time of year.
As you may have been seeing on our website and in all of our social media, Applewood Farmhouse is celebrating our 30th Anniversary. We have already been celebrating by sharing with you bits of our history and some fun throwback facts to 1987, the year Applewood expanded from the original farmhouse into a family eatery. We are so proud to have reached this incredible milestone and to be able to say we serve over 28-thousand people a week! We know that you, our loyal and faithful customers, are the primary reason behind our tremendous success. We can’t thank you enough for all of your support, encouragement, and love throughout the past 30 years. We will be celebrating formally in September when the Mayor of Sevierville, Brian Atchley, joins us for a daylong celebration and makes the official declaration of Applewood Farmhouse Day in the Great Smoky Mountains. We will have more details as we get closer to September, and we hope that many of you will be able to join us for what is sure to be a fun and exciting event-filled day.
Another thing that we love about this time of year is that it’s the time when we roll out some new items on our menu. Of course, you will always see Applewood Farmhouse favorites such as our famous chocolate chip pancakes, mouth-watering southern fried chicken, or our savory chicken pot pie. But to whet your appetite even further, we have just introduced some insanely delectable desserts like peanut butter chocolate chip pie at the Farmhouse and supersized desserts you can share with the family at the Grill. Come in and treat yourself.
We were recently named by the Grub Scout in the Knoxville News Sentinel as one of “5 Great Breakfast Spots in the Knoxville Area.” Even though we are located in Sevierville, Tennessee, we are so honored to be included in this elite list of great local restaurants and to be acknowledged by the Grub Scout as a breakfast spot you don’t want to miss.
I truly hope to see you this spring and summer season. It always warms my heart to see so many familiar faces. We can’t thank you enough for continuing to visit us year after year and for making Applewood Farmhouse Restaurant and Grill destination dining.
