Mama’s Farmhouse

With a name like that, you’d be amiss not to grab a table and bond over Southern comfort food at this family restaurant. Mama’s Farmhouse welcomes groups to share a meal, relax in one of the porch’s rocking chairs, and let the kids loose in Mama’s playground. For some of the best dining in Pigeon Forge, sit down to a family-style meal with generous portions of fried chicken, honey-glazed ham and Salisbury steak, among others.

Local Goat

Since 2016, Local Goat has been cooking up delicious American fare in the heart of Pigeon Forge. Their craft food and drinks are inventive yet hold onto Tennessee’s Southern roots.  Juicy burgers, hand-cut fries, shrimp and grits, bison meatloaf, harvest salads, and other scratch-made dishes are prepared using locally sourced fresh ingredients. Share a plate of fried green tomatoes with goat cheese and bacon jam or jumbo wings showcasing house-made flavors. Try a gourmet burger like The Elvis complete with peanut butter and fried bananas. Save room for dessert because no one makes white chocolate bread pudding quite like Local Goat. Sip on craft beer, wine or creative cocktails at Billy’s Bar, which specializes in delicious libations.
