The food was really good. The wait was 15 min less than they told us and the service was great. I had salmon and they accommodated my request for a side of glaze to put on my salmon. The broccoli was nice and fresh. I...also had fried deviled eggs for an appetizer which I had never heard of. The menu was a very nice change of pace from the many farm type menus around town. I will go again. I saw some huge burgers being served.More

We stopped as a last minute decision while driving through Pigeon Forge and it was the best decision! The food was excellent (including the deep friend Deviled Eggs) and while the place was pretty packed, we were able to get a booth (after only a...20 min wait) and our food came very quickly after ordering. Our server Mellanie was wonderful and my teenage kids even commented on how nice she was. Overall, great experience and I’d definitely recommend to others and I’ll be returning next time I’m in Pigeon Forge!More

Mellonie was absolutely phenomenal! From the moment we sat down she was very attentive and gave excellent recommendations for food/drinks. Whiskey burger and coconut shrimp were the best we’ve had. Will definitely be visiting again and again.

Excellent food and good gluten free options. My steak was cooked perfectly and the kids actually ate their dinner! Also had dessert and cocktails. Best quality food of our trip to the Smokies.

My family dined here twice on our recent trip, once for lunch and once for dinner. Both times we were quoted a 20-30 minute wait but were seated within 5 minutes! All of the food was delicious. We loved the deep fried deviled eggs and...cheese fondue for appetizers. My son got the Farmhouse burger and said it was the best burger he’s ever had. I’m a sandwich person and got the chicken salad sandwich for lunch and it was delicious as well! Highly recommend!More

We wanted to try this place for a while and we’re looking forward to trying the burgers based on the wonderful reviews. We started off with the fried deviled eggs and onion rings. Overall, both were ok. The eggs were slightly better as the rings...were a bit greasy and fell apart easily. Two of us got the Whiskey burger and two the farm burger. Only one of us finished our burger. They were all ok, but none of us would order ours again. The fries were greasy and soggy- probably the most disappointing item we had. We all agreed that we probably didn’t like any of it enough to ever return. My teen son that eats almost anything did not finish his meal. This definitely was not what we had expected.More

A group of friends and I visited the Local Goat for dinner last night. The food was delicious, but the service was PHENOMENAL. Jace was amazing, did an excellent job at keeping up with the large crowd, and was just a fun time! He made...the dinner so much more enjoyable!More

Went to Local Goat on our Girls Weekend. Made reservations a few days before to avoid the wait which is normal because this place is known to be great. We were seated quickly upon arrival within Jace's section. From drink orders to final checks and...last goodbyes, Jace was the best waiter we all agreed we have ever had. We even told the manager he needed a raise. He needs to train all new employees, because he knows how to create the perfect experience. He was knowledgeable of the menu, the town, and was attentive to are challenging groups every need. Food was great too, but the point of this review is to honor the fantastic service. Much thanks to a new friend from afar.More

The atmosphere of The Local Goat was absolutely what we needed to end our girls trip. We had the BEST time with wonderfully crafted drinks and I can personally recommend the pasta rocco.. however, the HIGHLIGHT of the evening was our waiter, Jace. He was...so attentive and had the greatest sense of humor! He literally made the experience at The Local Goat a 5 star experience. Give him a raise, a promotion, or at the least- a big ol pat on the back. He was the BOMB.com.More
