    • ken werner says

      stay away from PUCKERS , i went there for a adult beverage, the waitress ask if i was local or visiting, i said does it make a difference, she said yes if you are not local your beverage is more expensive, i told her to go to h—-, then i left, that is not a way to do business anywhere.plus the bathrooms where filthy, STAY AWAY FROM PUCKER’S

        • ken werner says

          That’s still a bunch of B—-L S–T I know a lot of people who go and try to enjoy
          the atmosphere and re-lax, They said the same thing, PUCKER’S IS A DIVE, ENJOY LOCAL’S.

      • Tina Jordan says

        All tourist towns offer discounts to locals. If you are a local in one of these places, you’d appreciate it too. Everybody loves Puckers! Everybody is so friendly and it’s not dirty by any stretch! Should have tried their wings and stayed for the enjoyment because Locals get discounts everywhere in town.. not just Puckers!

      • Sharon says

        Some people have no class. I’ll apologize for them. Puckers isn’t really too bad. The worst place us above it. Hogs and Honeys. But there’s loads of places to go. My son works at Crawdaddys. They seem to always be having fun there. Enjoy.

    Does anyone know the name of the hotel that is located on the same street as the convention center, side street, about 1-2 blocks behind it, across from an old church? I would appreciate the name of it!

    • Sharon says

      There is Gillette hotel. Microtelle hotel super 8. Sydney James is all the way at the end . that’s all I can think of.

    Whatever happened to the Rib Fest. My family and I attended it one year and had a blast. We arrived, in Gatlinburg the next year, to find that it had been cancelled.

  4. D jackson says

    I have a condo in Pigeon Forge, Tn. and have had it for 5 years. I pay taxes,electricity,trash sewer on and on. I stay quiet a bit. I agree locals should get discounts, but resent the fact I cannot get a discount of any kind..
