Abby’s Top Ten Pigeon Forge Tennessee Eateries and Such!




Trip Advisor has nothing over me, I can create a top 10 list to top their top ten!  Seriously, after living in that area for several years and visiting there annually, I feel empowered to tell you where to go – to eat that is, and to shop a little!

 

The Chop House:  This restaurant was our favorite when we lived there, it was our favorite when we did mystery shops there and it is still #1 on our list of eateries.  This last trip we both ordered the Prime Rib and if you are into that cut of beef, then you need to put The Chop House on your ‘to eat at’ list.  They have been around a long time and they know what they are doing!

Bullfish:  I love Bullfish, but learned the hard way that if you don’t want your Prime Rib covered in gravy be sure to tell them that.  I had no idea they served it that way.  I did have their steak our first visit and it was very good.  The service is good, the food is good, just watch out for the gray!



Belly up to the bar and enjoy


Harpoon Harry’s:  While their service is on the slow side, it is worth the wait.  Make sure to order a shrimp cocktail to keep you busy while waiting!  We have eaten there a few times since they opened and they have gotten a little faster.  Check out their bar!





That's a lot of Sweet Tea


J.T. Hannah’s:  Another great, casual place where the drinks are served in Mason jars and the ribs really do fall off the bone.  We ate there last week and I had a baked sweet potato with my Rib Eye Steak – delicious potato and perfectly cooked steak!



I could go for one of these subs right now!


Jersey Mike’s:  Since we are originally from New Jersey, the home of Jersey Mike’s, we were extremely happy to learn of their new location in Pigeon Forge.  That was our first stop last week – and the subs are just as good as we remember! 

Texas Roadhouse:  Again, great steaks preferred your way.  The Roadhouse does tend to get a little noisy at times, especially if you are seated anywhere near the bar area!  I don’t think we’ve ever had a bad meal there.




Old Time Pottery:  This is an old-time favorite of mine. When we lived in that area we spent hours walking through this store…it’s huge.  If you plan to visit Pigeon Forge please put Old Time Pottery on your list.  Right now, they have millions of Fall decorations and the beginning of Christmas decorations.  I did pick up a very cute wooden Fall pumpkin for the mantel.  They have thousands and thousands of plates, cups, mugs, glassware and all kinds of home décor items. 

Tanger Outlet Mall:  I am not an outlet shopper normally and when we go to the Chop House for dinner it just happens that Skechers outlet is close by.  If you love Skechers stop in and try on a pair or two or three!



Add to your Corelle or start a new pattern


Corelle Outlet:  This outlet is in the Red Roof outlet and if you are a Corelle lover you need to check out their prices.  The top level is mostly their current patterns and you can buy sets of individual pieces.  In the basement they have tons of odd pieces.  I picked up 4 small plates that normally sell for $5 each, marked to $1.50 and were on sale that day for ½ price, so I paid $3 for 4 plates!



New Public in Pigeon Forge, TN


Publix:  Up until a few months ago the only grocery stores were Kroger or Food City.  Now there is a brand-new Publix.  It’s was so nice to visit that store which is very convenient to where we stay.  We actually did a little grocery shopping the day before we left so that we wouldn’t have to rush to go shopping once we got home.

There you have it – my Top Ten in Tennessee.
