Restaurants in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee

Here are some of the restaurants in Pigeon Forge that we patronized:

Huck Finn's Catfish
3330 Parkway
Pigeon Forge, TN 37863
(865) 429-3353

Huck Finn's Catfish restaurant is our favorite place to eat in Pigeon Forge! Go for lunch. They start you out with what they call "vittles," served family style -- a bowl of ham and beans, a dish of coleslaw, a plate with pickle spears and sliced onions, and a basket of hushpuppies for everyone at the table to share. Then, each person orders an entrée, which they serve normal restaurant style. You can make a meal out of the vittles, but the fried catfish and spicy grilled shrimp are too good to pass by. And, by the way, the vittles at Huck Finn's Catfish are bottomless, meaning they will give you refills. If you have a small RV, you'll probably do okay with parking, but I'd suggest leaving the RV in the campground and riding the trolley.

Smoky's Pancake Cabin
4235 Parkway
Pigeon Forge, TN 37863

Smoky's Pancake Cabin is one of many pancake houses in Pigeon Forge. Open for breakfast and lunch, it specializes in, well, yes, pancakes. All sorts of pancakes. Bob had the Pineapple Upside Down Pancakes, one of the specialties on the menu. I opted for biscuits and gravy; the biscuits were light and fluffy, and the gravy had chunks of sausage. The food was very good. RV parking at Smoky's Pancake Cabin is iffy, so if you have a big RV, opt to take the Pigeon Forge trolley.

Sitar Indian Cuisine
903 Parkway
Sevierville, TN 37862
(865) 366-1380

Sitar Indian Cuisine has a lunch buffet, plus a menu. The restaurant was quiet, clean, and a pleasant place to go for and Indian food lunch. (We haven't been there for dinner.) It wasn't a huge buffet, but we enjoyed the variety of chicken and vegetarian dishes. Sitar Indian Cuisine has off street parking and we had plenty of room to park our motorhome.

Long John Silver's

3660 Parkway
Pigeon Forge, TN 37863
(865) 453-6204

Long John Silver's is fried fish, fries, and hush puppies. Oh, I think the menu includes baked fish, but when we go there, it's for fried food. Crisp breading, mild fish, served hot -- that's what I wanted, and that's what I got. The accompanying coleslaw and hush puppies were good, too. The real surprise was the crab cake -- delish! Long John Silver's is fast food, order at the counter, for eat-in or take-out, with a drive-through window. Our motorhome fit in the pull-through parking spaces in the back.

Harpoon Harry's Crab House

112 Community Center Dr.
Pigeon Forge, TN 37863
(865) 428-2006

Harpoon Harry's Crab House has a broad selection of fish and seafood, including buckets of crab and sushi. You can choose to eat out on the patio or in the dining room. We went for lunch, because lunch prices are considerably less than dinner prices. I enjoyed the crab cake sandwich. Bob said his blackened grouper sandwich was very tasty. Harpoon Harry's Crab House has a reasonably large parking lot; we parked our motorhome there with no problem.

Bullfish Grill
2441 Parkway
Pigeon Forge, TN 37863

Bullfish Grill's Sunday brunch menu enticed us in with Chesapeake Bay Benedict, a variation of eggs Benedict that included crab cakes instead of Canadian bacon. The petite portions of food were tasty and nicely plated. There's a large parking lot behind the restaurant with pull-through, double length parking spaces, making Bullfish Grill very RV friendly.

Reagan's House of Pancakes

2820 Parkway
Pigeon Forge, TN 37863
(865) 428-0652

Reagan's House of Pancakes is one of many pancake houses in Pigeon Forge. They do have a menu, but most people were choosing the breakfast buffet. They have off street parking, adequate for small RVs, or take the trolley. Reagan's House of Pancakes has discount coupons in the tourist coupon ad books and they also gave a discount when we showed a gas purchase receipt from the Marathon station next door.

Cici's Pizza Buffet
3189 Parkway
Pigeon Forge, TN 37863
(865) 366-1616

A typical Cici's buffet, with lots kids and noise. Many of the racks with tourist attraction brochures had Cici's rack card ads offering a free buffet with the purchase of an adult buffet and two beverages. Cici's Pizza Buffet has a large parking lot behind the restaurant, making it very RV friendly.
