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.
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!
We had heard great reviews about Cheddar's, so my husband, son, and I decided to check them out. My son's food was perfect right off the bat. However, my food and my husband's food had to be sent back TWICE. And we never send food back!! After waiting an excessively long amount of time, my husband spoke to the manager and we FINALLY got the correct food, cooked correctly. If it hadn't been so tasty after we finally got it the way it was supposed to be, I would have given this only one star. Perhaps, the cook was having an off day-- it happens-- but our first impression of Cheddar's was not a very good one.
Blue Moose is one of our favorite spots in Pigeon Forge for a mid-day/early evening meal/snack. It's never crowded at those times, the staff is friendly, the food is brought to the table quickly, and everything we've ever eaten there has been delicious. I don't think we've ever been to Pigeon Forge without stopping at Blue Moose at least once. Don't forget to check out the daily specials. Half-price nachos on Mondays = quite a delicious deal!! I recommend the ones with chicken. :)
Where's the chicken? We ordered the chicken fajita Queisdillas but it was all cheese! Oh & it was supposed to have bacon in it also... It had a few pieces the size of pepper flakes. So, call it what It is - cheese Queisdillas!
Sophie K. was a former student at the Life Changers Outreach Center - a 12 month faith based recovery center. This ministry is independent of Life Changers International Church.
The food was good and reasonably priced. We were a bit disappointed in that they did not have okra, hush puppies or dry rub on ribs but otherwise the food was very good.
We always enjoy eating at Margeritaville! The Cheeseburger in Paradise " is awesome! Great food, fun atmosphere & wonderful service. Can't wait to go back!
Food was okay. I've had better. All you can eat but you have to ask for more. Way to expensive (19.00 pp) This place is just not worth it.
There is NO match to the Cracker Barrel in Pigeon Forge TN. Frank the Manager and All his staff are Tops. Best Restaurant anywhere!!
