“How is this possible?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

2 adults, 2 teenagers and 2 children all walk into a restaurant and leave happy. The end.

Well, not quite. The service was excellent despite being very busy. I have ordered 100 dollar steaks at other restaurants, and none as tasty as JTH's 20 dollar one. Large beers were priced under 7 bucks, the wings coated in a taste reminiscent of the sort you find in upstate New York mom and pop dives. (which means they were saucy and delicious) The only thing I wouldn't recommend ordering are the cheese bites on the appetizer menu. We had everything from dip, wings, sandwiches, ribs, steaks... and we had not one complaint. We are "local" so I hope this was not a fluke experience as with many new restaurants in the Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg area. Cannot wait to go back!
PS. I wish I could remember her name, but our server was an hispanic girl who was so great with the kids and their frazzled parents (us). She was one of the better waitresses we have encountered in a very long time.

“Very good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

We went here after much research on where to find the best burger. After a week of eating "country cooking", we decided that we needed a good grilled burger to balance out the fried food. J.T. Hannah's fit the bill. My son got the "Killer" burger which is 16oz of Ground Sirloin and the rest of the family got regular burgers. I, trying to eat low fat, got the "lite chicken' plate. Everything was excellent including the service and atmosphere. The company that owns this joint also owns other good places in town.

“Good local place.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013 via mobile

When on vacation we try and hit local places and big chains. This place was a great find. My kids lived their burgers and husband got the killing me burger he said it was very good. Our service was fine no complaints glad we stopped here.

“Disappointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

Over-hyped and overpriced. Not much to say here just not worth the wait or money. My burger was small and my wife's chopped steak was small and smothered in gravy she didn't want.

“great food , quick seating”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

We were on our way to Cheddars which is a family favorite, but it was packed out, people standing waiting even on the outside. Close by and Just up the parkway we saw J T Hannah's. I had read about it on Tripadvisor and thought that since it had good reviews we would try that instead. We had to wait about 10 minutes to be seated, which is not bad for Pigeon Forge supper dining. The atmosphere is country with old tin signs, antiques,etc. We were served quickly . The best item of the four entrees was the ribs. They were very tender and sweet. The other entrees were large in size-- salad, hamburger, chicken tenders. The soft drinks, and teas are also in very large glasses. The prices were reasonable which is not commonplace at Pigeon Forge. We give this place a thumbs up. We will return.
