Love this place! Love the food! Love the service! Love the laid back atmosphere! Love everything about it! The servers are very friendly and quick to serve you.

I am not a seafood eater so I did not try the catfish but a friend with us got the catfish and loved it. My husband got the gator tail and I tried it and we both liked it a lot. I had the grilled chicken breast which was also very yummy. I am a chicken eater and it is... More

Down home Southern Cooking. The fried chicken is battered just right, crunchy outside, tender and juicy inside. The fried catfish is the same, you can filled on the regular order, but some folks might opt for the all you can eat, at a great price, either way you won't be disappointed. You can make a meal of the "vittles", creamy... More

Fast service with great food. They even had live music. Even if you do not like seafood, there is something for everyone. You will not find a better family owned business in the Smokey's!

I dont like cole slaw, but this was amazing! I had a few helpings of it. The catfish is to die for. Very light battered, delicious. Mashed potatoes and gravy and hush puppies. Very charming place. they serve you drinks in huge (I mean huge) glass jars. I loved that.

If you're in Pigeon Forge and love fish, you have got to try Huck Finn's!!!!! We have passed it many times, but never actually tried until last weekend. If you walk away from there hungry, it's all your fault. They start you out with "vittles" of white beans, pickles, onions, hushpuppies, and coleslaw. That's all I ended up eating and... More

We started eating here every year on our trip to the area because they had all you can eat whole catfish on the menu. No more, only filets. They were ok, but not the same. The rest of the family had shrimp which all agreed were excellent. We will be back next year again.

We went to Huck Finn's for dinner during our stay in Pigeon Forge because it looked like an interesting place and the menu sounded very good. Our experience was not very good. The service was horrible and the food just wasn't very good. We're not picky eaters, but it was not up to par. We won't go there again.

Asked a local the best place to eat in Pigeon Forge and was told Huck Finn's! Fun atmosphere and excellent Southern Style Home Cooked food! Excited to say I am now a fan of Vittles! Loved the family style and the staff was very friendly and accommodating for our large group. Highly recommended!
