Second trip back to Grill 73 passing through Pigeon Forge. The dishes are as flavor filled as I remember! The sweet tea is a new addition that I loved, I highly recommend! There wasn’t anything I tried that wasn’t of high quality. We will be back again.

Bean Trees Cafe

Reviewed By Roadhore - Little Rock, Arkansas

This is no fancy restaurant, but they have a great outside patio, good food, and good service, even if it was a little slow. Expensive for burgers and sandwiches. The burger, fries and beer I had was $20. It was a great burger, but it isn't a $15 burger.

While wandering around Great Smoky Mountains National Park we stumbled on this little gem. This little cafe and store features a good lunch menu, Blue Bunny ice cream and a few souvenirs. Monday is chicken and dumplings day so plan accordingly if your heart is set on this excellent dish. Note, this place closes for the season the week before Christmas and doesn't reopen till March.

A totally great experience. The hostess was friendly. The server was outstanding. The chicken and dumplings were amazing. Also enjoyed the barbecue and fried pork chops. Totally worth the drive. Hope the next visit is the same. Clean restaurant. Will certainly return.

We came across this place when stopping for gas, and I asked someone to tell us somewhere nearby that the locals eat. We absolutely love small town diners, and this place does not disappoint. The food was delicious and it is very reasonably priced. Four of us ate for less than $20. It was so good that we even ordered plates to take home. Its a little off the beaten path, but that's part of its charm. We will definitely stop here again if we are in this area.

Pigeon River Smokehouse

Reviewed By IowaJim2015 - Spartanburg, South Carolina

We've driven by this place numerous times and always wondered how the BBQ was there. We had time this trip so we tried it. It's in a small store right next to a bunch of white water rafting places with what appears a new dining area that has about 5 tables. We ordered the pulled pork sandwich with fries and slaw. Well the sandwich was large but the bun was so stale it detracted from the meat and in some bites all you tasted was stale bun with no pork. The sandwich lacked a good smoky flavor and tasted like leftovers from the day or two before. The BBQ sauce they put on the meat was a sweet bottled tasting sauce that was only good for softening up the bun. The fries were hot and the slaw was watery. Really disappointed but all I can say is we tried but I'm afraid we won't be back.

Food is good and plentiful, service is usually pretty good. Small place with folksy feel. We go there once a month for a group breakfast. Get huge portions.. Haven't tried lunch and not sure if they're open for dinner

This was our first stop & restaurant in the Smoky Mountains. Great view of Mountains from table. Served first with Apple Cider & their Apple Fritters to dip in their own Apple Butter...so good! Fast service for our food & our meals were great. Service was the best and if we would have had time we would have gone back.
Before we left we shopped their store & got Apple Butter, canned Peaches, Honey, Apple Fritters & the Best Apple Cider!!
