For the longest time, on the road through Wears Valley, there was a little structure on the side of the road overlooking the waterfalls that used to be one thing or another and then just sat empty for years and years.
Then one day, the owners of the highly popular McClaren’s in Sevierville bought the odd property and turned it into their next big hit with locals and visitors alike by turning it into Friendly Falls – a little roadside cafe where people can stop for a bite, burger or beer, settle into a comfortable and pleasantly offbeat atmosphere and just enjoy being alive for a while. All sorts of fun things appropriate for a snack or full meal are served at reasonable prices. Some nights we have entertainments playing as well.
If you’re in the area, come by and see us! You’ll have a great time!

My wife and I spotted here on our way back from Cades Cove and ate glad we did! The owners were super friendly and the view of the waterfalls was amazing! We got a burger and wins and some Orange Shandy beer (hard to come by in NJ). The food was good. They also had locally made crafts and other items. Would recommend stopping here for a bite to eat and to relax between shopping and looking for bears! Really beats the crazy restaurants in Pigeon Forge.
“SO WORTH THE STOP!!!!”

We could tell the first time we drove by this place that we wanted to stop-in and see what it was all about. It has a unique and quirky feel even from the road. We weren’t sure at all what to expect but we are SO glad we stopped in! The view is fantastic and all the dining is outside on the deck overlooking the waterfall but there are space heaters all around to keep you warm. I honestly wasn’t expecting much out of the food because it seemed like the real attraction was the view and eclectic vibe but I was very pleasantly surprised!! I had the fresh, local rainbow trout and it was outstanding. My husband had the jalapeno wrapped in chicken wrapped in bacon fried and tossed in buffalo sauce which was crazy good.
