"Good times"
June, 2018 NEW
We went to this show on our second night of our vacation. The chicken served was very meaty and tasty. The show was fun, especially the two comedians. They might not speak, but were hysterical! The show reminded me of a Cirque de Soleil with the acrobatics. Our server was very nice and attentive. The only complaint we had is that the food is continually served throughout the show. With the lights dimmed, it was sometimes hard to see what was on the plate and even the server's walkway is lower, they still were in the way occasionally while watching the show. I would prefer my meal be complete so I can thoroughly enjoy watching the show. That is the same reason we did not repeat the Dolly Stampede.

It was a great way to spend the evening with our grandchildren. The food was wonderful and the show was so entertaining. The staff were warm and welcoming and the grandchildren enjoyed meeting the performers after the show. My youngest grandson asked if we could go again the next night. We would definitely go to this show again the next time we are in Pigeon Forge. IN

June, 2018 NEW
My husband and I had a great time at Dolly Parton's Celebration. It was a cute and family friendly show to watch while we were served a delicious meal. I felt the value we received for the price was well worth it. I was impressed as to how the servers were able to serve all those people at the same time and that the food was also hot and fresh!

"Well worth it!"

The show was amazing! There wasn’t a dull moment. When there wasn’t a huge act or there were set changes there was side performances to keep the kids entertained and all parents know the importance of that during a sit down dinner, but I loved the show as much as they did. Not to mention the food was delicious as well!

Went to the new dinner show Celebration 6-16 18 and found it tobe way unorganized.There is no pre show like Dixie Stampede or Pirates Dinner show which I might add is the best of the three.Every body trying to find a place to sit until the doors open.The food was fantastic the show needs some work for the price you have to pay.Anyone can tumble and do cart wheels.The trampoline act,I will always Love You act, and the Wheel Walker was the best acts,maybe with time they will get it together, The show is timed for two hours but it only lasted One hour and 25 minutes.I might try it again but no time soon.

Our family loved it! If you get there early, you can get a drink or look in gift shop. Seating at this venue is great! Your sitting side by side at a table, looking directly at the stage. Our server was SO friendly and attentive. We were very impressed with the food, the fried chicken was so good! Amazing how they serve that quality of food to so many people. We loved the little peach pie at the end. The show itself was really good too. Highly recommend !

"Just OK"

Reviewed June 21, 2018 NEW
Like many other reviewers, we were disappointed in this show. We were expecting something much better since Dolly has her name on it...but it was only OK. We will not return. The tickets were expensive and the food was at best OK. The waiting area to go inside the theater was cram packed with people and when they finally open the doors to be seated, people file in like cattle or something. The sweet potato casserole was about the only thing that was good at dinner. The server (Carrie) was very good and kind. The pre-show with the 2 clowns wasn’t funny at all and the acts were mediocre. The theme of the show was almost like a poor knock off of The Best Showman movie. Don’t get me wrong, the actors are talented but seemed to even surprise themselves when they landed a move successfully. Overall we were very disappointed. When my daughter (5 yrs old) was asked her favorite part, she responded “the end”...Mine too.

Enjoyed the show Celebration more than the Dolly Parton’s Stampede. The acrobatic acts were more entertaining and there was not a pre-show to draw it out. The only downfall was being held up at the door while everyone had their picture made. I know a lot of these show make it mandatory and I understand, but they need a better location than the front door.

"Very Disappointing"
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5
Reviewed June 21, 2018 NEW
Considering this dinner theatre was coming from the Dolly Parton entertainment group we were expecting some special things that did not happen. To begin with it is advertised that there is a per-dinner show which there was but the only way to describe what I assume were clowns was LAME.These two performers were beyond boring and I have no idea what they were trying to do. Next the dinner came out and it was really disappointing. The chicken breasts we had were reasonably flavorful but they were dry. We were at Hatfields and McCoys recently and the chicken was PHENOMENAL, moist, juicy and very tasty so chicken can be cooked for large numbers of people, no excuse. They also served macaroni and cheese that did not have any flavour and was gummy. The ham was good but come on, who can mess up ham? The main entertainment was okay and only okay. Jugglers that dropped things, acrobats that were only reasonably talented and some purposeless audience participation events. Considering the popularity of the Dolly Parton dinner theatres and the money behind this corporation you would think they would be able to hire more competent performers. I have to give positive comments to their biscuits and the dessert but that's it. The bottom line is from my point of view if you only have the time or money to only attend one dinner show in the Pigeon Forge area, do not hesitate to go for an all round great evening at Hatfields and McCoys.
