The vittles and the sweet tea were awesome! The catfish was bland. I’m use to Cajun so maybe that is why. The tarter sauce was good. I also had the fried green tomatoes. Not the best I have ever had but not bad. I like...mine over cheese grits so these were different. I would definitely go back. Our server was really nice and very quick to make sure we never ran out of anything.More

Great food and friendly service. Vittles (hush puppies, beans n ham, coleslaw, onions and pickles) are all you can eat and come with your meal along with 1 side dish. Catfish was served hot and crispy. Had the skin on mashed taters with cream gravy....Taters were hot and creamy. Reasonably priced for the portions and you can share an entrée and pay about $9 for the Vittles. Would definitely eat here again.More

Nothing wrong here except the the fish fillets are kinda small and the fish often gets lost in the crust, The slaw, fries and hushpuppies are very tasty. You can get a regular order or the "all-you-can-eat" option. Also, all you can eat white beans,...pickles, hushpuppies and slaw. Service is good and it's a neat, clean atmosphere.More

Stopped here on lunch during a day of fun in Pigeon Forge. We tried a mix of entrees, including frog legs, catfish and fried chicken. All were excellent. Meals include family style "vittles" of beans & ham, cole slaw, hushpuppies, pickle & onions, All were...great and portions were good. Prices seem reasonable and service was helpful. Definitely enjoyed our visit.More

Food and service was great. They really feed you here! Unlimited vittles with your meal - hush puppies, cole slaw, and beans. All were good, but we especially liked the hush puppies! My catfish was awesome, and my wife loved the BLT! We will definitely...be back!More

You could make a meal of vittles, white beans, coleslaw, hush puppies, dill pickles and raw onions, but we didn't. We catfish fillets (a three piece order, with mash potatoes and a four piece order with fries), they were huge. I am one who never...ask for a to go box, (we both did) but I had to, as I said, the fillet were huge and perfectly prepared. Our server, Danielle, checked back often to make sure our drinks were refreshed and everything was ok.More

They had a patio and tables but we went in December so they had indoor dining. Because of the setup i can assume in spring and summer they do.
