Paula Deen’s Family Kitchen was born from the values of spending time with family and loved ones, serving up delicious food and always showing southern hospitality. We wanted to create an environment that feels like home without the worry of cleaning up the mess afterwards! Some of Paula’s most cherished memories involve enjoying a meal while being surrounded by family and friends, passing dishes back and forth – and that’s exactly what we want our guests to do!

We opened our very first restaurant in April of 2015 at The Island in Pigeon Forge, TN, and it soon became known as one of the most unique dining experiences in the South. We just knew we couldn’t limit this experience to one location, and we’re so grateful to have several Paula Deen’s Family Kitchens in the US.
