A local’s opinion of the seafood restaurants in Pigeon Forge, TN.

Huck Finn’s Catfish

If you’re heading to Gatlinburg from Pigeon Forge don’t be surprised if you do a double-take to your right on the way there. That’s right, that was a huge catfish you saw. Around here, it’s Huck Finn’s Catfish restaurant’s calling card. But don’t just keep going, stop in and grab a bite to eat. This is one of the best restaurants in Pigeon Forge, no less the Smoky Mountains. Their menu consists of everything from catfish to country cooking you grew up on. Their service is second to none in the area and they feature live music almost every night. Huck Finn’s will have you coming back for more and bringing your friends with you.

Obviously, when you’ve got catfish in your name, you’re specialty is catfish. Or at least it better be. Whether you want it fried, golden-brown and served in fillets or whole fish, Huck Finn’s has mastered catfish cooking. They bring in the best catfish from farms in Mississippi. You won’t find any puny or under-prepared catfish here.

So you’re looking for something other than the usual? Place an order for fried chicken. It’s so crispy my mouth is watering just thinking about it. Can’t decide between the two? Try the catfish and the fried chicken. At Huck Finn’s Catfish, it’s all-you-can-eat so, they’ll keep serving it up if you keep asking for it. And be sure to at least take a glance at the menu, there are many more seafood choices that you might want to try next time.

Each meal comes with a family-sized portion of sides. You could fill up on the vittles alone, though I wouldn’t suggest it. The catfish and chicken are just too good. Tempting though, especially when your server brings out hushpuppies, cole slaw, white beans & ham, onion and pickles. This is also all-you-can-eat, so don’t worry about taking too much. Ask for as much as you like. In our opinion, you can’t ever have too many hushpuppies.

Huck Finn’s Catfish isn’t a Johnny-come-lately establishment, it’s become a Smoky Mountain destination over the years. Part of the reason they’ve been so successful for such a long time are their knowledgeable and hard-working servers. Huck Finn’s wait staff works really well together- most are from the area and truly enjoy their job. Not only is the food prepared quickly, but exactly to your order and drink refills are prompt as well as the all-you-can-eat sides, catfish, and chicken. On top of that, live music on the stage almost every night makes Huck Finn’s a pretty happening place even during the week. It’s easy to see why they’ve been around for so long.
