"Motown Show"
December, 2017
The show was excellent!!! They state the food is all you can eat but my son wanted more spaghetti and they told him they had no more. They gave a woman sitting in front of us a 2nd plate and she did not even eat it. My son would have cleaned the plate!!! Needless to say we had to go and get him a hamburger after the dinner show. If you want to be full eat before you go because their all you can eat is not all you can eat!!!

Tip: The performers are AWESOME!!! I would have given 5 stars if not for them running out of food!!!

Excellent night of entertainment. The meal was good. The entertainment was out of this world. It was nice of the entertainers to stay after the show and sign my daughter's dvd. The young lady who played the saxophone was mesmerizing.

"Sound of Motown"
August, 2016
Due to some maintenance issues, we
actually saw the Motown show instead of America's Hit Parade. If The Hit Parade show is any better than the Motown show, then it would be 'out of this world' (because the Motown show was absolutely phenomenal). It was like actually being at a Temptations concert back in the 1960s!

The entertainment value was excellent! There were many talented performers. The show was high energy, and very nostalgic. The tribute to the veterans was very inspiring. The food was not that great, although the service was excellent.

Tip: See if there's an option to just see the show and pay less for the tickets. Don't buy the meal unless you have to.

"Hit Parade Music a Real Hit"
June, 2016
The Music of the Hit Parade lived up to its promise and billing. The singers were professional and sounded like the original stars of the 50s and 60s. The tribute to our veterans was inspiring. I'd recommend the music show to everyone, it is a really nice family show. As for the food, well that's another story. The service was fine but the served it an hour before the show and not many were there. The food was second rate, a piece of meatloaf, some ordinary mashed potatoes, normal chicken tenders you'd find in any fast food restaurant and some concoction of carrots and peppers that weren't really good. The dessert was an apple or peach fritter, rather flat and something you'd find just above what you might find in a gas station. The unsweetened tea was okay but the sweetened tea was like water. It was really uncomfortable having those not eating coming in and sitting around us while we were finishing eating. There was no entertainingment during the dinner, nothing, just sitting there and eating a meal not up to par with what you'd expect for a dinner theater. They need to either follow the Dixie Stampede model or drop the dinner all together.

"We Had the Worst Meal Ever But a Good Show"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed November 26, 2017
Hubby wanted to see this show, although I told him I thought TripAdvisor reviews had indicated the food was not good. We did attend this show. There was a bus full of tourists attending and a few more couples like us. The theater was mostly empty. The theater has low breakfast bar type seating that chairs pull up to. Food is delivered to you already plated on a regular size rectangular plate . From their show flyer, I will list what was on the menu and write beside it what we actually received. "Grandma's Homestyle Meatloaf" : On one corner of the plate, we received a small meatball size chunk of meatloaf - about 2 bites worth. "Juicy Roasted Chicken": In another corner of the plate were 2 thin slices of highly processed sandwich style chicken that were rolled up and were each about the size of a piece of blackboard chalk. There was gravy on top. "Seasoned Fresh Vegetable Medley" : On a third corner of the plate was about 1/2 cup of wilted, brown, salad in a bag mix with a couple of bits of tomato. There was a cup of ranch dressing. "Hot Baked Dinner Roll" : In the last corner of the plate was about a 1 1/2 ounce roll. On the table was a dish with individual portions of "buttery spread". "Creamy Mashed Potatoes" : In the middle of the plate was a large serving of instant mashed potatoes topped with gravy. "Specialty Dessert" : On a dessert plate was a slice of cheesecake with 2 puffs of artificial topping and a squiggle of raspberry sauce on the plate. The two bite serving of meatloaf and the cheesecake were the only parts of the meal that were reasonably good. People from the bus tour were sitting in front of us and we were discussing how dreadful the meal was. Many people were not finishing this first plate of food. I did not see anyone asking for refills for this " all you can eat dinner ". If I was rating only the meal, I would have rated this a 1: Terrible on TripAdvisor. Things got much better when the show started. This is a small show with a limited number of performers. - 7, I think. All the performers were skilled, enthusiastic, and upbeat. The performances were well paced, and energetic. The tribute performances were very well done. The Elvis tribute singer was superb, and all the other performers were excellent as well. If I were only rating the show, I'd rate it a 4: Very Good on TripAdvisor. There are a number of dinner shows in Pigeon Forge with great entertainment and good to great food. They are all in the same general price range. You have lots of choices. Based on our experience, I would not go to this dinner show again.

"Not worth the money"

I was very unimpressed with this show. The Elvis performer was really good but that was it. This was a dinner show. The food was terrible. We ordered appetizers and didn’t get them until after the meal. My salad was brown and when I mentioned it to the waitress she told me it had only been made an hour ago and she walked away. I would not waste my money on this show again.
