First place my husband wants to eat when we arrive in Pigeon Forge. Very casual atmosphere, the employees wear jeans and t shirts. good southern food. The first thing they bring you is vittles, which consist of cole slaw, hush puppies, white beans pickles and onion slices. all you want and it comes with the meal. the menu has fried chicken, catfish, gator tail, frog legs, country fried steak, country fried chicken, chicken livers and more. you also get a choice of mashed taters or fries. also appetizers, a kids menu and desserts. (they do have a grilled chicken also) Your drink comes in a mason jar with free refills. your napkins are a roll of paper towels on the table. there is also a gift shop. Huck Finn's is located in the middle of Pigeon Forge on the parkway, the main road through town. There is a big cat fish out front, cant miss it. and at Christmas, the catfish wears a Christmas outfit. very cute. Dont miss this place if you like southern fried food, casual dining and friendly people. the only negative to Huck Finn's is they serve Pepsi, I am a Coke person. but that is minor. we have been going to Huck Finn's for years everytime we visit the Smoky Mountains. highly recommend.
We ate here on 7/12/10. The best BBQ ribs either of us had ever eaten anywhere- perfectly smoked, great sauce, and just falling off the bone tender. Both the sides (baked potato salad and green beans) were good too. We met Smokin' Ed the owner. He was welcoming and pleasant with a genuine passion for BBQ that you can taste a hundred times over in his ribs. We'll make the drive from NC again just for more BBQ. It just is that great. Don't expect to find a big fancy place. It's small and plain but cosy and very clean. If you have a big party, best to pick up some Smokin' Ed's takeout and find a pretty place to picnic. The portions are incredibly generous- which is wonderful because the leftovers made a delicious lunch for us the next day. Due to the portions, the quality, and the family-friendly pricing, a meal there is truly an amazing value. Not that it matters. The only thing I'll remember about Pigeon Forge when I'm old and gray will be Smokin' Ed's outrageously perfect BBQ ribs. That makes this a consummate dining experience at any price in my book. Five out of five stars because BBQ could be different and possibly just as good but just doesn't get any better than Smokin' Ed's.
No reservations are required, but on the weekends, you might want to call ahead. Parking is free and the Island provides a free tram to and from your car. Police patrol the parking lot so it's about as safe as it can be. Restaurant serves alcohol, the Land Shark is their bar. They have a pavilion outside to hold the drinkers and keep them segregated as well as possible from the families inside. The food at the Island Margaritaville seems somehow a little better than other Margaritavilles. I'm not sure why, but the presentation is so pretty! and the taste is So so nice. :) The service is friendly and attentive without hovering. So far, I haven't found anything on the menu we don't enjoy. I go there every chance I get. :) Oh, and my favorite dish is the Seafood Béchamel. Wow! I could live on that stuff!
