Reviewed August 5, 2014

Good food and drink, great music and atmosphere....a little expensive though!
Trip advisor says I need to add more characters, ( my review is too short). Well, I will add that they had live music, a great 5-piece band, apparently they have various local musicians and the two who performed while we were there were great!

“Fun experience! ”
Reviewed August 5, 2014 via mobile

I would say the food here was a little above average but not by much, but it's the atmosphere that made it worth while. It has a super fun, music playing, loud party type Will of atmosphere. Our boys enjoyed it and the service was wonderful. Our waitress was super friendly and talkative- she genuinely loved her job.

“Good Location at The Island”
Reviewed August 4, 2014

Have frequently visited the one in Myrtle Beach and this one is not as good, however it just opened and can get better. 1.5 hour wait which we knew it would be. Was a great location at the new Island. We visited may shops and had the fountain was great at night. Food was good but a little pricy which is a given here. Will go back when in the area.

“Meh”
Reviewed August 3, 2014 via mobile

We went with friends to have dinner for the first time here. We got a few alcoholic drinks, which didn't even have much alcohol in them. Two people got one of the fish plates with mashed potatoes and cole slaw. The slaw was just gross and the potatoes on both of their plates were ice cold. One of the kids meals was butter spaghetti and it was also cold. Cheapest dinner item I found was a burger for $13 and it wasn't worth that. We ordered nachos and they are huge, worth the $15. The waitresses are spread thin it seems. Our waitress constantly dropped off a few drinks and then disappeared before we could order appetizers. Pretty safe to say we won't be back a second time.

“Fun time!”
Reviewed August 3, 2014

This was the highlight of our trip to Pigeon Forge. The waitress was fantastic and made wonderful recommendations (Bama Breeze!). Make sure you have a large appetite because the portions are huge. You don't have to be a Jimmy Buffett fan, but it sure makes the menu a lot more fun to read if you know his songs.
