The food speaks for itself. Most of the dishes are so tantalizing and smooth, and every dish has an explosion of flavours. Dishes vary in timing and precision. Some are cooked with hours of care, to enhance the spice and taste and some take the correct cooling time to bring perfection. Try Huck’s favourite Catfish paired with Golden Chicken, or Grain fed Pond raised Catfish enrobed in a meal mixture. Their Gator Tail is hand breaded and deep fried, and their Cheese sticks is nestled in warm marinara. The Hot pepper Cheese Bites sits on top of spicy pepper cheese sauce. Their extensive southern style menu also features such delicious items such as Country Fried Steak, Grilled Chicken, Frog Legs, Fried & Grilled Shrimp, Rib eye Steak and Chicken Livers balanced with all you can eat Vittles. This consist of creamy homemade coleslaw, made from scratch, baked white beans, choice of French fries or homemade mashed potatoes and gravy, famous signature southern hushpuppies and dill pickles & onions slice. All this at Huck Finn’s Catfish Restaurant and more.

Huck Finn's Catfish Reviews & Ratings
More than enough food and pretty good, excellent service. The sweet tea was PERFECT and the hush puppies were so good that I took some with me. It was so loud we couldn't talk to one another though. Parking was a huge pain. The gift shop and the novelty t-shirts might have been the best part.
Love their sides (vittles)! Show up hungry because it's a lot of food. The Chicken Livers are amazing. I think I'll stick to the catfish fillet next time. I was surprised at how small the whole catfish was and it was only 1 piece. Yes it was lunch portion and I was already full from sides. Yes it tasted great. However, I'm used to the whole catfish from a town I lived in. It was scored and fried to perfection. Giant beautiful chunks came off the bones effortlessly. So I guess, my expectations were really high. Still giving 5 stars because it ALWAYS tastes great!
Great catfish and the vittles come free with a meal. Hubby got fried clam strips which were good also. Grandson got chicken strips & fries off the kids menu. My son got the Rocky Top boom boom shrimp but, they apparently forgot to put the sauce on top of his dish...
Absolutely loved this restaurant. The service was wonderful and very nice. The atmosphere was interesting too. The gift shop had a variety as well. The food was beyond tasty. The boom boom shrimp, gator tail, and frog legs were all mouth watering good as well.
We eat here every trip we make to Pigeon Forge. Love the atmosphere the service and the food! I always get the catfish it's so good. My hubby ordered the hamburger steak and liked it. We love the vittles. The white beans are yummy coleslaw is good but the hush puppies are the best!
