“Tons of fun!”
Reviewed April 25, 2014

Pleasantly surprised at the amazing atmosphere. The "firewater junction" band made it even more worthwhile. A little pricey, but when the cashier saw my military ID, he immediately offered us a 10% discount. Nice place, will definitely return

“Good time”
Reviewed April 25, 2014

Every time we are in Gatlinburg we have to stop here. Everybody that works there is really nice. Gotta love the free moonshine!! My husbands favorite is the Blackberry moonshine. And I love that they have live music so the kids and I get to sit there and listen to them while my husband do in.

“Free tastes!”
Reviewed April 25, 2014

This place has a great atmosphere! It is very laid back. You can see where they make their moonshine and they have a band that plays. The bartenders would joke around with everyone and they made the tasting enjoyable. We got to taste each kind of moonshine that they offer. The strawberry, lemon drop, and blueberry were delicious!

“Nice Experience”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

This is a nice place. Lots of free samples of moonshine. The only thing is that the moonshine we purchased seemed a little watered down from what we tasted and it froze when I put it in the freezer which proves that fact.
