Pigeon Forge, Tennessee…a quaint mountain town surrounded by the stunning Great Smoky Mountains, home to the one and only Dollywood, and brimming with tasty food stops.
The Blue Moose is a great place to hang out and watch the game or just chill with your buddies, plus they’re family & dog friendly, so bring the whole gang! Locals RAVE about their wings, unique appetizers, and huge beer selection.
Local Goat is, arguably, Pigeon Forge’s best restaurant for craft food and drinks! Not only is the food locally-sourced and completely scratch-made…the dishes are crazy unique and creative. Think deep fried deviled eggs, stuffed piquillo peppers with goat cheese, and “The Elvis Burger” featuring peanut butter, smoked bacon and fried bananas…yumm!
You can find this gem of an eatery in The Old Mill, built in 1830 it’s one of the oldest continuously operating gristmills in the country. You won’t find any gimmicks or trends here. Rather, they pride themselves on honest-to-goodness fried chicken, buttermilk biscuits, fall-off-the-bone tender country ribs, and other Southern classics that warm our bellies and tug our heartstrings.
Located in the Wild Bear Inn, the Wild Bear Tavern serves up something a little different…and we like it that way! You can find them serving up authentic German fare, from Schnitzel & Eggs to German Pot Roast, morning till night.
Technically The Donut Frair isn’t located in Pigeon Forge (it’s actually in Gatlinburg) BUT we visited this charming donut shop while we were staying in Pigeon Forge and it’s so incredibly good we had to include it anyway! This cute little bakery lends some of it’s allure to the fact that’s it’s located in The Village Shops, a quaint, Old World, European-themed village featuring a collection of 27 unique boutiques, eateries, galleries and clothiers. You’ll be hard pressed to find a better fried pastry in the Great Smoky Mountain area, but make sure you bring the Washingtons & Lincolns as they only take cash, they’re old-fashioned…just like the donuts!
