This was our first trip to Pigeon Forge and Junction 35 was the first meal we had when we got here after traveling 12 hours by car from NY, and it set the bar really high for the rest of our vacation. It was actually so good, we came back a second time during our stay. The restaurant is brand new and has a great atmosphere. The modern, industrial decor immediately feels comfortable, yet high end. There is a great selection of comfort foods on the menu, from smoky BBQ platters to gourmet salads, there is something for everyone. Between our two meals, we tried the BBQ and dry rubbed wings, the BBQ ribs, the brisket nachos, the shrimp and grits (if you love spice, you will LOVE this dish!), the chicken club sandwich, and the grilled marinated chicken breast over rice. All of it was outstanding! The drink menu is large and there are a lot of great options there as well. My husband tried a few of the craft beers, as well as a jalepeno mango margarita, and I stuck with mojitos, which were the best I have had anywhere. The service was great and we had a lot of fun sampling and shopping in the gift shop after. We brought home a bottle of the Apple Pie whiskey that we can’t wait to sip by our fire pit one evening when the weather cools down. Overall, this was our favorite restaurant during our trip and I will absolutely recommend it to anyone I know traveling to Pigeon Forge.

we headed here for an early dinner and to check out the distillery . our server was really great - service was fast and the food was delicious (appys and our burgers) as was my cocktail ... of course i ordered a cocktail because i am not a fan of moonshine ... or so i thought , so lets step next door to the distillery . the distillery has quite a number of flavours of moonshine and other liquors. i was really only interested in the flavoured vodkas until i got that first taste of one of their moonshines. and it was so good! definitely nice sipping 'shine. we ended up buying several flavours along with some of the flavoured vodka and honey bourbon . ( they also have tequila and gin) . as we'd eaten there , we got the tasting free , but it is well worth the $5 it costs if you dont. as an aside, every thing was clean , bright and the guys working on the distillery side were great!

We went here to eat our first night and 2 other times while there. We had the best bartender Krystle on our first night she was fantastic!
The food was good , the many different moonshines were great, highly recommend the Apple pie moonshine or we called it[ Aunt Bees] from Andy Griffith. That's what it reminded us of. We also did the wine, shine and food tour whistles is a must do if your there. The reason I bring it up is 35 junction is one of the places on the tour . Mama Missy I belive the name she goes by has just about every moonshine they make lined up as you walk in. She was really great explaining each one and it gives you a chance to sample and buy the one or in our case ones you like best.
Must say that tour and just going there to eat and drink is a must if in the area. It was our favorite.

We had dinner there tonight, and the service wasn’t good, but the food was awful!! Our salads came and were warm and wilted, and less than a minute later, our entrees were served as well, which is a major no-no. I had shrimp pasta. The shrimp were in skewers, and were not fully cooked. The pasta was extremely tough. My husband’s chicken pasta dish was the same…extremely tough pasta. The only thing we had that was good was the order of fried pickles. The sub-par meal was expensive, and it’s extremely loud in the restaurant. I don’t recommend, and we won’t be back.

I visit Junction 35 Spirits each time I come in town. This time was especially good because the person that served us was not only knowledgeable about the product but she was very friendly and comfortable to be around. These are the traits that not only make for a great vacation but makes you want to move to Tennessee. BIG shout out to Missy!! Keep up the great work! We will return to see you again.

This was my first time visiting, this was a recommendation from my father-in-law. We made the trip as part of a bachelor party weekend, and I have to say the food was absolutely fabulous. The Montreal nachos were by far the best nachos I have ever had.

After our lunch we headed over for a tasting and Eric was the greatest, He went over and beyond to answer our questions took time to explain all the flavors and mixtures that would make each and every bottle of spirits the greatest.

By the time we left out after the tattings I know I had 13 bottles and everyone else was pretty close to 10.

Would definitely recommend to anyone who is close to the area. Even if you're not a drinker, the food was well worth the visit.

We absolutely loved this place. It’s new, modern, fresh, progressive, and clean. We paid $5 for a tasting and received at least 10 samples, plus some that were not in the line up. The moonshine here is 70 proof, and so many high quality flavors! Missy was our server, and she was simply awesome! We even hung out after our tasting to eat lunch, and Stan took really good care of us.

I like this booze here better than Old Smokey and others(there, I said it!), and there was zero wait to sample and eat. I’d recommend this place to anyone hoping to avoid the typical Gatlinburg/ PF tourist traps and who want something new, different, and high quality.

I cannot tell you much about the food , nor much about the restaurant, as I have never been inside. What I can tell you about is the people!! When Sevier County got put on lockdown and all restaurants closed their doors, Junction 35 was selling hamburger meat, potatoes, toilet paper, sanitizer , rice, etc. Alot of things we could not find in the grocery stores at the time. They also did one of the most amazing things I have seen a restaurant do. Every Friday for month, Junction 35 would give out food to their locals . No strings attached, called community curbside service. This restaurant has not even been here a year and has reached out and helped locals like not many restaurants did. Either breakfast or lunch, it was always good. We once asked if we could make a donation or some sort but the gentleman simply said this is our way of giving back to the community. SO for a restaurant that takes care of it's locals , it will definitely take care of your family! Thank you so much Junction 35 . your kind gesture will never be forgotten and I can't wait to write my second review when everything gets back to normal

We stopped in while on vacation. We ordered the poutin, a tray of smoked meat and a cheeseburger. The portions were generous and each dish had delicious flavors. Nothing was overly salted or bland. I recommend the smoked brisket. They also had brussel sprouts drizzled in a balsamic glaze and they were great! My husband was sipping on a watermelon rosé beer and it was fantastic. The sweet tea was perfect as well. The waitress was great! She came around at the perfect time and checked to see if shellfish was fried separately due to an allergy I have. She was knowledgeable on the drink menu and food menu. The prices were reasonable considering the portions size. $9.99 for the appetizer and it was large! We also did the tasting of the whiskey and moonshine on the other side of the bar when we finished eating...it was $5 and you get a shot sized sample of several types of alcohol. There is also a gift shop where I purchased a shirt and it was high quality as well. Very nice place we will return on our next visit in November.

Laura was a great server ! We came from Grand Rapids Michigan and she was born and raised near there ! It felt homey 🥰 and she tried her best to go above and beyond ! I think this is a great place for everyone to eat at. There’s a variety of foods and alcoholic drinks. Make sure you stop over to the other side of the store, as they do moonshine & whiskey tastings :). We got free tasting cause we ate there. $5 tastings if that’s all you want to do. Everyday there’s a variety of flavors they have people try. We ended up buying 3 bottles of moonshine. A must-buy is the bomb pop ! This really does taste like fruity pebbles cereal. Laura noticed our bottles that we bought and went to the bar where one of their workers wrote out recipes for the drinks we purchased :). Stop right on in if you want great food and drinks you will not be disappointed. Don’t forget they have deals on there bottles.
