Food was not very good, not worth the price. Burgers were burnt to a crisp. Never got our cheese sticks and no one to ask about it till the end when we paid. Good place for some entertainment though.

Place was chaotic of course and thought the floor should be swept as there was a sea of paper all over the floors. Could be dangerous walking but dealt with it as that’s what Dicks is all about. Wanted more attention from staff on birthday people we brought in for the first time but didn’t get that. Food is overpriced for what you get, don’t get the steak, awful piece of meat and ribs weren’t all that good either.

Not our greatest dining experience. I ordered a wrap and the chicken was undercooked and still pink on the inside. Manager less than helpful.

In truth, Dick’s Last Resort deserves zero stars because our reservation was not honored. At first, we thought the server’s refusal was part of the insult humor theme. I showed her my reservation confirmation, and she assured me that she was not going to honor it. It would be a 45 minute wait “just like everyone else!” When I inquired why the restaurant was on Open Table, she shrugged her shoulders and walked away.

Undeterred, we went to the side entrance. The man at the counter pointed to the front door and said one word — entrance. When I explained our situation, he also indicated that the restaurant didn’t accept reservations, he raised his voice and shouted, well over the din of the dining floor, Lady, don’t hassle me!”

I thought an evening of beer, burgers, and comedy would be fun, even if it meant we would be the butt of the humor. Clearly, the joke was on us!

I used this site to make dinner reservations and when I arrived I was told this Dicks doesn’t take reservations. So we were forced to wait 45 minuets for a table. It makes no sense to me why you would even list the Gatlinburgh Dicks on your site. False advertising if you ask me. Overall, dinner was fun.

I would never go back to Dick's in Gatlinburg again unless I could request one of the female servers, they were hysterical and did a great job with their tables, they showed they truly cared about what they were doing and were hilarious. The male waiter we had was terrible and didn't seem to care a bit about his job and what his purpose was there. The idea is to be sarcastic and rude and hilarious at the same time and he was a down right jerk with no care for his job. He complained about his pay he complained that people do not tip well and was very rude to the girl that was sitting next to us about her bill and that he had been there since 11am was over it.

Had reservations for 7:30, arrived at 7:15, there were plenty of open seats and we were told by the hostess we would be seated shortly. We stood and waited for 45 minutes. We asked a couple times when we would be seated and were told both times they were getting our table ready. We finally left at 8:15 and went next door to melon mushroom. The restaurant was extremely dirty, if it hadn’t been for my son wanting to eat there I would have walked out as soon as we arrived. Please don’t look at my food evaluation as we did not eat. Would not let me submit review without rating.

Restaurant doesn’t know how to handle reservations vs. walk-ins. Very disappointed that we made a reservation, then we were told to wait about a half hour, and then finally told by the manager that they didn’t know about the online reservations, so basically “oh well, can’t do anything for you.” Management needs to get their act together.

I do not recommend this location. We made a reservation and still did not have a table 45 minutes later, so we left without any service. Management was very disorganized and was unable to give us an answer as to why we were waiting so long, despite having a reservation. I’ve been to many Dick’s locations and have never been treated like this.

The workers were fun and our grandkids got a kick out of it. The food was good. The only problem was a few people at the bar being overly loud and obnoxious. Seemed a couple of them should have been cut off from alcohol - they had several just in the time we were there. My grandkids could hear the language and comments very clearly. I understand that happens; that is really my only complaint.

We had a blast. My 14 year olds loved it. They had no idea what to expect. They first off wanted to know why the place was so dirty. Napkins and paper towels everywhere.
When they brought out the “Flint” water my kids were in hysterics. Our server rocked. You aren’t paying for food quality here. You are paying for the theatrics of it all.
Would definitely go again. Kids and adults laughed so hard they were crying.

Dick's Last Resort was all I had hoped for in Gatlinburg. It's convenient and I laughed the entire time I was there. We went with a group of 10, and I'm grateful we had reservations. Our waiter was loud and obnoxious. You should be forewarned of the foul language and vulgarities that the staff writes on the hats. It was pretty funny, but we had to do some explaining to our adolescent boys. My best advice to you is to go with it! It can be quite liberating to be sarcastic and blunt to the wait staff. Definitely go with a group.
The food was not the best. I ordered the chicken fried chicken and that was delicious, but the shrimp platter was ok at best. I was disappointed they didn't have burgers on the menu. The food is pricey, but you're paying for the napkins and straws and entertainment. A night to remember!

It's a fun place to go. The servers are spot on and amazing. I left a great tip, the servers earn it by walking the line of smart a** and server. The food is not good. Plain and simple, bad, but that's part of the experience I guess. How do you run out of wings? They would not be good anyways based on everything else we had.

I was there 5 years ago and it was fun. The seating was High top tables and food was good. now they have bench seating and you have to sit with people and their kids jumping around. the food portion was extremly over priced for the portion . I had peel and eat shrimp and it was overloaded with garlic. I will not be going back. The wait staff were good though

Awesome atmosphere with delightfully rude service. My kids thoroughly enjoyed interacting with our waitress. The food was very good, but not 200 dollars good. But as I said, the atmosphere counter balanced the cost.
Great job.

Our waiter was trying to be funny when he threw forks at us, however they actually hit me and flew off the table. Then, when we asked him for barbecue sauce, he said, "No." He never brought the sauce. He gave my husband a Bud Light instead of a lager, and his jokes on the hats were rude (not in a funny way) to my fourteen year old daughter and myself. I'd heard good things about this restaurant but we had a bad experience and will not return.

What a wacky place. Going to some where that you tip them well to treat you like crap on purpose. Had a great time even though paper was everywhere even under the table to start the meal. Went to a paper napkin war with the surrounding table. Good place to loosen up or just go bananas.
