What to Expect At The Margaritaville Pigeon Forge
The new Margaritaville Pigeon Forge restaurant is unlike all the other places to eat in Pigeon Forge. Here, guests are encouraged to set their clocks “to island time” and drift away.
From the moment guests step inside they will feel as if they have been transported to a tropical beach somewhere with none other than Jimmy Buffet as their tour guide. Everywhere you look, visitors will find an abundance of island-themed memorabilia, slogans and pictures. Not to mention, there is a larger than life margarita blender in the middle of the dining area.
Our personal favorite is the Volcano Nachos. Piled high with house-made tortilla chips, melted cheese, fresh guacamole, chili, jalapenos, tomatoes, sour cream and scallions. We suggest bringing a volcano-sized appetite to finish this dish, or at least a buddy to share it with because there is a lot!
Other popular choices include:
- Shrimp Louis Wedge Salad (grilled shrimp, avocado, tomatoes, capers and hard-boiled eggs)
- Beach Club (sliced ham and turkey, Swiss cheese, Applewood-smoked bacon, dijon aioli on a toasted bun)
- Seafood Mac & Cheese (shrimp and lump crabmeat with cavatappi pasta that is covered with a Boursin cream sauce)
- Key Lime Pie with a graham cracker crust
Vegetarian and gluten free menu options are also available.
Prices for entrees range between $16.99 and $25.99. Be sure to sign up for Margaritaville Pigeon Forge’s Fins Up Club email list to receive a coupon for a free appetizer for your next visit to the restaurant.
