The Smokies Best Shows Are Also The Most Fun Places To Eat!

For guests visiting the Smokies, the entertainment options are top notch. Whether you’re ready for an adventure with Pirates or want to laugh your socks off, we’ve outlined the best shows the area has to offer.

First up is Pirates Voyage Dinner & Show. This is the newest show to the area and one of our favorites.

Appropriately located right next to The Island, pirates and mermaids will take you on an amazing adventure. Even Salty the Sea Lion makes an appearance, all while guests are served a delicious four-course feast fit for a pirate.

If you’re looking for some feudin’, feastin’, and fun, the Hatfield & McCoy Dinner Feud has got you covered. Become part of the longest-running feud in history and help the Hatfields and McCoys try to settle their differences mountain-style.  You’ll love the singing and dancing, mighty feats of strength, jaw dropping stunts and side-splitting comedy. They also have an all-you-can-eat southern dinner that is out of this world.

We would be remiss if we didn’t include the world-famous Dolly Parton’s Stampede in our list of best shows. For 35 years, this staple has entertained millions of guests with its 32 magnificent horses, amazing trick riding, and friendly competitions. The meal at this dinner and show really is spectacular with a whole rotisserie chicken and their original creamy vegetable soup that is so good it’s got its own cult following.

If you have dinner plans elsewhere or are just looking to unwind, The Comedy Barn is a fantastic option. It’s touted as the most successful and most attended clean comedy theater in the world and has been entertaining guests for over 25 years. With barnyard animals, jugglers, ventriloquists, comedians, and live country and gospel music, it truly is a night of a thousand laughs.

So be sure to take in a show during your trip to the Smokies – or more than one! Go to to learn more.
