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
Tip: They serve alcohol for an additional fee.

"Awesome Show "
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed June 26, 2017 NEW
I'm sitting here reading the negative reviews in disbelief. This awesome show is Dollywood meets Cirque du Soleil, with the trademark delicious food you get in Dolly's shows. No, I'm sure Dolly's mom and dad didn't meet while turning somersaults and dangling off poles. It's a show! Dolly even narrates it and says that host Apple Jack was a storyteller who told some tall tales now and then. And you know, we'd be pretty bored if we were just eating dinner while watching two people fall in love... there kinda has to be some embellishment for entertainment's sake. The trained hunting dogs and Hamlet the pig were precious, and the music was fabulous. Our server Alexis was fantastic as well. I would highly recommend reserving your seats on the Owens side for the sole purpose of being able to watch the Owens juggler. I couldn't take my eyes off that guy; everything he did was astounding. Dang, I love Dolly.

I never saw the Lumberjack Show which was in this theater before Smoky Mtn. Adventures but this must be an improvement since the other didn't last. The food was as expected if you have had Dixie Stampede's. They do a fantastic job of serving it piping hot to that many people. I agree with other reviewers in that the storyline is lame. Dolly is a terrific storyteller so maybe they should ask her to do a rewrite. Surely, she did not write this one. The acrobatic performers are so good they need a better venue for their stellar performance. Still, I recommend this as a good choice for a dinner theater.

"I Was So Disappointed"
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5
Reviewed June 23, 2017 NEW
I'm a huge Dolly fan and had been excited about this show since it was announced. I really want to give this a good review but in all honesty just can't do it. The acrobats were hands down incredible but it just doesn't match up to the storyline which is sketchy at best. America is currently in love with your origin Dolly, they loved your two movies based on your childhood and your parents and seeing that you're billing this based on your family's origin, it would seem that the storyline would be truer. The acrobats are also not true dancers or singers, they're acrobats. That was also a huge disappointment as we are used to authentic artistry in this part of the country. Best part was definitely the food!
