We found the lines to the Local Goat to be ridiculous but we had to find a way to eat there. It must be fantastic. This morning we made an 8PM reservation just to give it a try before leaving town. The food was very...average. The facility is cute, but nothing special.Our waiter (ALEX) was truely outstanding. He was by far the best thing about the Local Goat. At the end of the meal I went to the restroom. It was filthy. One of the worst restaurant restrooms I have seen this year. No paper towels (other than the ones thrown on the floor). The counter was a mess. I left without "doing my business" knowing I could make it to our hotel. This was one of the worst experiences we have had. It was average, but the restroom put it over the top as a bad experience. I rated this a 3 out of 5 which I feel was VERY generous. Needess to say we will not be returning to the Local Goat on future trips to this area. I would not return even if they offered us free meals for life. I was very turned off, especially by the restroom.More

My husband and I ate at the Local Goat our first night in town. It was fantastic, the Deep Fried Deviled Eggs were Devilishly Delish! The white chocolate bread pudding was also a big hit! Our server was fantastic as well. Only one little hiccup...and that was the young lady seating us seemed to have a bit of an attitude. Other than that, we were more than pleased! The place was packed yet they still got us in quickly.More

Did not get past the rudeness at front door! Bar not open to buy drinks while you waited the 2 hours . The first person was so rude that I thought he was just taking a break. Could not look up from his phone.

Enjoyed a great meal at the Local Goat in Pigeon Forge. Although we had to wait a bit to be seated it was well worth it. The service was great, the cocktails delightful and the meal was wonderful. We had the shrimp and grits and...the teriyaki steak kabobs. Both meals were cooked perfectly. Would definitely recommend.More

Scrumptious food! Fettuccini Rocco was so delicious and a very generous portion. Fish and chips yummy with a nice crispy crunch on the 3 fish tenders. Onion rings were cut wider than our preference (each ring 2-3” wide) but still delicious. You can’t go wrong...with one of their hamburgers! Attractive, casual dining. Very popular and parking lot always looks crowded but they go through their wait list in a reasonable amount of time. After putting your name on the list, you wait outside or in your car for a text. Our server, Zachary R was fabulous! Very personable, attentive, but not intrusive.More

I would highly recommend making reservations a few days prior to your visit, the food, atmosphere, and our waiter, Robert were all fantastic. My fiancé and I both agreed he’s the best waiter we’ve ever had.
