Huck Finn's in Pigeon Forge is one of the best restaurants in the U.S. for fried catfish. They are, in my opinion, the best restaurant in the U.S. for frog legs. And their sweet tea will match any other sweet tea in the south. My neighbor and I travel from Knoxville to Pigeon Forge on my days off just to... More

The best hush puppies (or dog nuggets as my son kept calling them) I have had in a long time. The boys loved the chicken strips and the fried chicken was tasty. But the catfish was just ok. The vittles were great and the fried pickles were fantabulous! The service was awesome!

My wife and I really enjoy Southern style fish and looked forward to trying Huck Finn's out. We were very pleased with our meal and service. As we waited for our meal they brought us all you can eat vittles (Slaw, white beans, hush puppies and Onion and pickle). Our waitress was super sweet and was very helpful in helping... More

Our first experience with Huck Finn's Catfish was a great one! We arrived around 2:30 and were told it was still "lunch service". As our waitress seated the six of us, she began piling bowls of coleslaw, baked white beans, plates of sweet onions and dill pickles and baskets of crisp tender hush puppies on our table, and they kept...

My son couldn't wait to go to Huck Finn's to try their catfish. Based on reviews we gave Huck Finn's a try. Don't bother, try another restaurant in the area. Reasonable price for amount of food, but nothing great about food. Vittles were just okay along with catfish and as other reviewers stated French fries were soggy. Won't be back.

The sides that precede the main dishes are OK. Beans, coleslaw, hushpuppies, onions, etc. My husband had all you can eat catfish and they did provide as much as he wanted. I had catfish and chicken. The catfish consisted of two very small pieces. The chicken was good. The service was excellent. I don't think it is the best place... More

This is some good eatin! I know that's not proper grammar however that is the only way I could describe it. They give you awesome portions, the service was great and I really wish I had a personal driver ready for me so when I left, I could sleep in the backseat of the car while they drive me to... More

We've seen this place for a number of years and wanted to try it out. My family finally ate here last night. We all ordered salt and pepper catfish but the amounts were so large I would recommend ordering a variety of items and sharing. To start the meal you get unlimited coleslaw, beans, pickles, onions, and hush puppies. Hush... More
