"Awesome"
August, 2016
We've seen quite a few shows in Pigeon Forge but can't say enough good things about this one. First they are very efficient, meal is brought out in waves so you're not overwhelmed. Servers are super friendly and there immediately if you need anything.
The show.... Wow!!! Constant motion. At no time were you without some kind of entertainment. From acrobatic to wood chopping to dog fetching tricks and everything in between. Wonderful show, wish I could've gotten a CD of the show but they don't offer this. Other than that, we were totally impressed and did pass our feeling onto the GM who happened to be sitting next to us. Super friendly guy btw. If you are going to Pigeon Forge make this one of the must see shows. We booked thru reservepigeonforge.com for our tickets, good prices and great seats

"Just OK"
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5
Reviewed June 21, 2018 NEW
Like many other reviewers, we were disappointed in this show. We were expecting something much better since Dolly has her name on it...but it was only OK. We will not return. The tickets were expensive and the food was at best OK. The waiting area to go inside the theater was cram packed with people and when they finally open the doors to be seated, people file in like cattle or something. The sweet potato casserole was about the only thing that was good at dinner. The server (Carrie) was very good and kind. The pre-show with the 2 clowns wasn’t funny at all and the acts were mediocre. The theme of the show was almost like a poor knock off of The Best Showman movie. Don’t get me wrong, the actors are talented but seemed to even surprise themselves when they landed a move successfully. Overall we were very disappointed. When my daughter (5 yrs old) was asked her favorite part, she responded “the end”...Mine too.

"Celebration Show"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed June 21, 2018 NEW
Enjoyed the show Celebration more than the Dolly Parton’s Stampede. The acrobatic acts were more entertaining and there was not a pre-show to draw it out. The only downfall was being held up at the door while everyone had their picture made. I know a lot of these show make it mandatory and I understand, but they need a better location than the front door.

"Very Disappointing"
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5
Reviewed June 21, 2018 NEW
Considering this dinner theatre was coming from the Dolly Parton entertainment group we were expecting some special things that did not happen. To begin with it is advertised that there is a per-dinner show which there was but the only way to describe what I assume were clowns was LAME.These two performers were beyond boring and I have no idea what they were trying to do. Next the dinner came out and it was really disappointing. The chicken breasts we had were reasonably flavorful but they were dry. We were at Hatfields and McCoys recently and the chicken was PHENOMENAL, moist, juicy and very tasty so chicken can be cooked for large numbers of people, no excuse. They also served macaroni and cheese that did not have any flavour and was gummy. The ham was good but come on, who can mess up ham? The main entertainment was okay and only okay. Jugglers that dropped things, acrobats that were only reasonably talented and some purposeless audience participation events. Considering the popularity of the Dolly Parton dinner theatres and the money behind this corporation you would think they would be able to hire more competent performers. I have to give positive comments to their biscuits and the dessert but that's it. The bottom line is from my point of view if you only have the time or money to only attend one dinner show in the Pigeon Forge area, do not hesitate to go for an all round great evening at Hatfields and McCoys.

First time at this theater, saw the show "Celebration". Tasty food was served by friendly staff. The show featured aerial performances, acrobatics, comedians, singing, and even included people from the audience. Well worth the money. We would definitely return to see this show again,.

They need more wheel chair spaces. Had a great ramp. The waiter was friendly and took good care of us. He was quick, efficient, and was still able to keep it friendly. All the food was great.The chicken breast was tender and very tasty. The ham was just as good. I love sweat potato but found their's with cinnamon was too sweat for me but was fine. After the soup I was full but managed to eat it all. The show itself was good. I would not say excellent but good. It was fun and we enjoyed it. I don't think you will be disappointed.
