“Pure Southern Cook”
Reviewed July 30, 2014

Down home Southern Cooking. The fried chicken is battered just right, crunchy outside, tender and juicy inside. The fried catfish is the same, you can filled on the regular order, but some folks might opt for the all you can eat, at a great price, either way you won't be disappointed. You can make a meal of the "vittles", creamy coleslaw, hushpuppies, raw sweet onions, dill pickles and white beans. A word about our service, Summer our server was great, very friendly and attentive, she kept our quart jar, drinking glasses full. Plan to arrive between 3 and 4 pm, as it gets very busy afterwards. The only bad part of our meal was a whinny child, which the adults at the table kept laughing about, parents PLEASE be considerate of others. A great meal and a great price.

Fast service with great food. They even had live music. Even if you do not like seafood, there is something for everyone. You will not find a better family owned business in the Smokey's!

“BEST CATFISH & COLE SLAW”
Reviewed July 28, 2014

I dont like cole slaw, but this was amazing! I had a few helpings of it. The catfish is to die for. Very light battered, delicious. Mashed potatoes and gravy and hush puppies. Very charming place. they serve you drinks in huge (I mean huge) glass jars. I loved that.

“Wow”
Reviewed July 26, 2014 via mobile

If you're in Pigeon Forge and love fish, you have got to try Huck Finn's!!!!! We have passed it many times, but never actually tried until last weekend. If you walk away from there hungry, it's all your fault. They start you out with "vittles" of white beans, pickles, onions, hushpuppies, and coleslaw. That's all I ended up eating and walked away way fuller than what should be legal. That is all you can eat, included with every meal. My husband ate catfish and chicken and said it was very yummy!!! The price is phenomenal for the amount of food you get!!! Try it, you won't be sorry!!

“Miss the whole catfish”
Reviewed July 26, 2014 via mobile

We started eating here every year on our trip to the area because they had all you can eat whole catfish on the menu. No more, only filets. They were ok, but not the same. The rest of the family had shrimp which all agreed were excellent. We will be back next year again.
