    Fun and entertaining show !
    Lively, entertaining show. A fun evening. Very unique how everyone sits facing the action and the food is brought directly to you. Once you sit you never have to get up. Be aware, they only give you a fork. No knife. You are to eat with your fingers, picnic style. Definitely recommend this to anyone looking to be entertained !
    Hi there! Thanks for the great review. We're happy to hear you had a fun time.

    Dinner theater
    Very intertaining and the food was good. We enjoyed the way you are seated and the food is delivered fast, hot and good. Doggie bags are even given out for those who want to take home leftovers. We especially loved the Red, White and Blue show. There was something for everyone, comedy, acrobats and amazing horse shows.

    Disorganised, but great show in parts
    Expected a lot but not as good as thought would be. Couldn't order tickets from UK so emailed them and they organised for me. Just got a parking space. Queued to collect tickets. No tickets. Disorganised and managed to get printed. Into saloon , told can go in arena at 5.30 for 6 o'clock show. Queued upstairs at 5.30, everyone then upstairs, squashed liked sardines or cattle, if any incident would have been disaterous. Finally allowed in about 6.15 to seating, waitress brought drinks, show began, wonderful start, loved the USA history show and video screen etc, waitress starting serving, very distracting, ordered gluten free, awful, got spoonful fruit cocktail and overcooked roll, show still on, waitress serving dinner, chicken first, started eating, very good, then sweetcorn, then potato etc etc all served separately, trying to eat while show continuing, then pudding, overcooked cookie ! I think as a 'Dolly'show it would have been far better to have her singing songs on screen while eating and very little 'Dolly', also when the story if book donations, again why not Dolly. Then there was a lot of audience participation, shouting, cheering, comedy and chicken and pig racing etc, more than needed as I had paid to see the show etc. Loved the end with all the glitz sparkle American stars and stripes, again not long enough, may be just as am English but love all the native american history and glitz show.
    Hi there! Thanks for taking the time to share your experience, we're glad you enjoyed your time with us.

    Stampede Show - great dinner & fabulous entertainment!
    This is much improved compared to a few years ago when we went. The talent of the young horseback riders is phenomenal. It had a little slapstick comedy from time to time, but all of it was fascinating and entertaining! Waiters and everyone there all had smiles, and we’re very friendly and cordial. Food was delicious too. Highly recommend!

    Must do!
    We LOVED this dinner. It was such a fun experience with two 5yo kids. The food was good the show was great and we enjoyed the entire experience. My daughter has a severe egg allergy and they had no problem accommodating her. It was my favorite dinner in pigeon forge.
    Howdy Danielle! Thanks for the amazing review! We're glad you had a great time!

    Decent Meal, FIVE STAR Show
    The show alone is worth the money! Incredible performers and really great job of engaging the audience. My niece (6) and nephew (9) both LOVED this. The food was pretty good. The chicken was the best part. Service was also good. We were provided an ASL interpreter as requested so bonus points for accessibility.
    Hi Jackie! Thanks for the 5 star review! We're glad to hear everyone had a great time and that we were able to accommodate your ASL needs.

    Good food, good service, nice commitment to patrons
    The food was quality and plentiful. Every single staff member we interacted with either by phone or in person was friendly and focused on being completely helpful and answering any questions. I know having been to Orlando some dinner shows will try to cut corners to make an extra buck but this place definitely seems focused on satisfaction. Likewise while of course there are the requisite opportunities to spend more (photo, flags, gift shop etc.) I never once felt it was a hard sell or parent guilt tripping. Just “we have this option too.” The most impressive part of the show for me was the trick horseriding. Very talented. Some acrobatic stuff was great too. I was surprised there’s very little Dolly Parton in the show. Like 5% less and it could have been any generic Stampede.

    Fun and different family attraction, did not like the crowds!
    Fun family attraction to do in Pigeon Forge. Very different than what we are used to. The check in process was easy but when it was time to go to your seats, it was a crazy mad dash with lots of people and pushing. We did not enjoy that. Once we were in our seats it was fine though. They served us a lot of food to the point it was almost wasteful! Exiting the venue was much easier than entering it. It was an Ok place, but pretty much a one and done for us.

    Even my two teenage boys had fun !!
    I have to admit- I thought it was going to be cheesy entertainment and plates of “rubber chicken”. I was completely wrong! It was a high quality production with gorgeous horses and silly but fun competitions. The kids were very entertained (even my two teenagers!). They really mastered the food production, each chicken was served incredibly tender and the dessert was absolutely perfectly done. The chicken was a tad salty on the skin but underneath was perfect. Despite all the good food we ate on the trip, my 16 year old said that was his favorite meal. 😂
    Hi KJ! Thanks for the amazing review! We're glad EVERYONE had a good time!

Good show, and good food. However, the VIP option is a waste of money. They let you in early just to sit around and wait. You sit in the front row, but actually sitting back a couple of rows is better.

A delicious meal and entertaining show. All around a family favorite of our trip. The engaging show that is funny and exciting. High level of service. Totally worth it! The competition between north and south was fun and audience participation made for some good laughs.

Bring cash to tip your server.

Was very disappointed. Food was terrible. Chicken dry. No butter for corn or biscuit, potatoes hard and not totally cooked. If you’ve ever been to a rodeo then you’ve seen the show. The best part was the entertainment before the show. 3 gentlemen that sang and entertained us. They were great! I talked to my brother in law who went to the show 35 years ago and he said it all sounded the same , even the food :/ I think it’s time for a redo n he show and food. Definitely not worth the money!!

My sisters and 90-year-old Dad went to the the Sunday matinee and a great time. The venue is designed such that everyone has a good seat! The show had its corny moments, but that was part of the fun! The food was plentiful and tasty. We all good doggy bags and had enough left overs for dinner the following night!

Food has declined significantly. We've visited the old Myrtle Beach location many times and the food was excellent. Sadly, the soup is now practically water and the potatoes and biscuits are terrible. The show was entertaining as always. I also recommend having some digital way of tipping servers. I don't regularly carry cash. Both my family and the family beside us left no tip because there was no such option. A simple QR code would have resolved that.

I have been to this show many times and love it. It’s one of my favorite things to do in the area and we go everything we are in Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge. Highly recommend.

Fixed meal. Biscuit, whole chicken bird, pulled pork, potato bites. Coke products. Alcohol extra. Lightly seasoned.
Nice show. There are times the audience gets involved.

Loved the show including pre show entertainment. Wish the Clydesdales were on the horsewalk. That was disappointing. I also wish they would do away with the North and South labels. Needs to be refreshed into something new given the political atmosphere. It still could be a competition! What about predator/prey, urban/country, mountains/ocean, silver/gold, past/present (that’d be a cool technology show and how horses evolve with it as workers). There are so many better options.

I really appreciated that they offered a vegan meal for me. I wish they would have seasoned it though. Very bland vegetables and not great rice. It would be easy to swap the buttermilk biscuit for a dairy free biscuit, but I just didn’t get any bread - only more carrots 🤷🏻‍♀️ please have your chef consult with someone who knows vegan food. Would be easy and inexpensive to have better tasting options.

The show was outstanding! However the meal was disappointing. I ordered a vegetarian meal. The website says fire roasted vegetables with quinoa and rice. I basically got a plate of soggy vegetables. They tasted like a pack of frozen vegetables that were thrown in boiling water. They had absolutely no taste. I tried to put salt on them but all the salt packages looked like they were wet at one time. The salt was one big clump. I ended up putting barbecue sauce on the vegetables to make them edible. Far from the fire roasted vegetables that were advertised. The vegetable soup has chicken broth in it. If you are vegetarian I advise you to eat before going to the show so you don’t leave hungry.
