The Pigeon Forge location of this popular chain features 3 unique dining areas with memorabilia from Dolly Parton, Jimi Hendrix, and Madonna. The restaurant also has hundreds of collectible items on display, including a Taylor Swift vintage lace dress, frayed pants worn by Shania Twain, and a three-tier skirt with rhinestones worn by Dolly Parton. Don’t miss the Hard Rock Cafe’s famous hamburgers and be sure to pick up a t-shirt to commemorate your visit.

2. Paula Deen’s Family Kitchen

Paula Deen’s Family Kitchen is another fun restaurant to visit with a group because all of the dining is family style. If you are unfamiliar with this style of dining, your group simply chooses from a selection of hearty down home dishes and Paula’s famous sides. Once your food arrives, it is shared by everyone at the table so you pass the dishes back and forth just like at home. You can rest assured you won’t leave hungry as you are free to enjoy unlimited refills, so don’t be afraid to ask for seconds or thirds!
