Alamo Steak House Pigeon Forge, TN

I’m just not a big fan. I’d give them probably 3.5-4 stars. Honestly, I was so upset because their prices online do not reflect the prices of their actual menu. It’s like double the cost. Only kids can order off the kids menu. Normally I don’t complain much about this, because there’s something at least comparable on the regular menu. Not here. Their steaks were all big. I couldn’t eat all of that. Cooper and I could have just shared a cheeseburger. This is the cheeseburger he got. It was ONE POUND. Why does one need a one pound cheeseburger? I didn’t get it! I got some French onion soup, because it’s my favorite soup. Anytime I’m at a restaurant and they have it, I must buy it. It was pretty good, but the richness was so much and there was nothing to cut through that richness. I couldn’t finish it, because I couldn’t tolerate that richness. I ate about half of it. If it had something to freshen up with, I think the soup would have been the bomb. I had a kids steak, because it’s what Coop ordered, and then I ended up eating it, because the cheeseburger looked better to him I guess. Anyway the steak had been brined for too long. They had horrible texture. Coop did LOVE the cheeseburger and fries though. For 3 people we paid 95.00. I almost died. It was just too much. Our waiter refused to come by our table regularly. He made me feel uncomfortable. The waiter aside, because he didn’t matter; I will not go back again. It’s just too expensive for my blood for blah food.

Curley’s BBQ Pigeon Forge, TN

We always try to go to places we’ve never been to before when we go on vacations. No chain restaurants that we can go to at home. We decided to try out Curley’s.  I’m super picky about BBQ sauce…and I loved theirs. We really loved their fries. They were the best part of the whole meal. The BBQ was ok. It wasn’t horrible, but it was really dry. As you can see I put a ton of BBQ on mine, so I wouldn’t choke to death. I’m hoping that the issue is not wide spread, but instead an isolated incident. I also think they’re rather pricey. It really sucked we sat in the drive thru forever waiting for our food too. I’d probably give them a 3.5 stars. I don’t know if I’ll ever go back, but I’d definitely consider it.

Review: Ramsey Hotel Pigeon Forge, TN

I forgot to get a picture of the outside of the hotel, but we live close enough, I can get one anytime, but I figure that everyone would be more interested in the food from the Ramsey Hotel. It’s a beautiful place, but they are still under construction. At least they were when we were there August 6th. They used to be Holiday Inn. We were told they changed the mattresses just a week before we came. I’ll say the beds were sooooo comfortable. I was pretty sick still during this time, but I slept pretty good, considering. They just had all the carpets changed about two weeks ago, so we didn’t get to see those. We were told by one of the employees we were sitting and chatting with that they’ll be redoing the rooms next too. The rooms weren’t ugly, just dated, so I know when they finish that upgrade then it’ll be amazing!

One of the best things about this place is, it’s not bad priced. It is a bit more pricey than some of the other places though, but you can get good deals too…but anyway the bestest part about the place is they do offer a buffet breakfast. This is what I got. I know it looks like a small plate, but understand, at this time I couldn’t hardly eat anything. The eggs are pretty good. They have hash browns, biscuits, gravy, cereal, and more. You’d love this. They have a bar and a restaurant here. Movie night in the pool area. The pool is open 24/7. The bad thing is no outdoor pool. But it’s not a deal breaker for us. If you’re ever in Pigeon Forge TN try this place out! I give it 5 stars. I really didn’t have anything bad to say about it.
