When going to Dicks it is expected to have what I consider entertainment in a odd insulting kind of way. Our waiter was nothing like that, it was like he fell off the sweet train. We didn’t get the signature white hat of shame or any of that. Over all very disappointed. It was a girls weekend get away and we thought it would be funny to go, instead we got a dirty environment with decent food. Many other places there in Gatlinburg we now wish we had gone to.

I wanted to love this place... our waiters were wonderful. But the food....yikes. I will say I somewhat enjoyed the pickle chips, they were soggy and cold, but I’m really annoyed thatwe paid 100$ for that to be the only FAIR tasting item we ordered.

Waiter was not much fun. Didn’t really rip on anyone or do anything funny. He thought throwing menus on the table was all he needed to do to entertain. He sure didn’t mind asking for a large tip several times though.

Service was awful. Not brought wait staff. Never got our hats made for the table which is the main reason for going. No excuse and no apology. Unacceptable. And they have us a second round of drinks acting as if it was complimentary (because we did not ask for it) and they charged us. Will not be back again.

I understand that the servers are supposed to be sarcastic and funny but it was completely over the top. People were throwing napkins and straws on top of our food, and the waitress was nasty!. Even if I overlooked her inappropriate comments, she was a terrible server. (I.e. - never refilled our drinks). The final straw was when she wrote something so vulgar on our 9-year-olds paper hat that we couldn’t explain what it meant. In summary, I will never visit under Dick’s Last Resort - expensive food, poor quality and terrible service.

The service was terrible, which in this case is good! The waitress was hilariously rude. She did disappear for a while, so we were there much longer than anticipated. The food was okay- which for the price was a bit disappointing. However, you don’t go to Dick’s for the food, you go for the experience- and this was an awesome experience!

I totally understand the atmosphere and the vibe in this place. I was fine with the sarcasm. But the service was painfully slow. The food wasn’t good. The place was dirty. I’m sure it was dirtier than we could really see because of all the paper all over the floor. The bathrooms were dirty too. I would not go back here.

I understand that the servers are supposed to be sarcastic and rude, but they aren't exempt from doing their job...We had no silverware and couldn't get our waitresses attention long enough to get any. She saw that we had a coupon for a free appetizer and informed us that we could only choose room two options yet when we got our bill she didn't subtract the coupon and then argued with us when we tried to get her to take it off, saying it was too late that she had swiped our card and said she didn't know about the coupon. Food was ok, but my friends steak was so tough she needed a chainsaw to cut it...Terrible...

We thought is very very dirty and the food was less than mediocre. Waiter was pretty boring for an experience at Dicks. I understand know why it was so easy to get a reservation at open table. I would not recommend this restaurant.

Dick’s Last Resort should not be on open table because they do not take reservations. We only learned this when we arrived on time and then had to wait 30-45 minutes like everyone else. This was incredibly frustrating.

Boy, I did not know what I was in for. Someone gave me a coupon for DLR so I thought I’d put it to use. Man, the hostess was very nice, greeted me at the door. Then she told me it was community style seating (I never heard of that before) and ask if it was ok. She sat me with these to nice families. Which both the guys had jobs in the same field as mine. We all got acquainted. Then that’s when the waiter came to the table and started hurling insults at one of the guest. I was really shocked. Then he gave most of us a nick names as he asked what we wanted to drink. It really got hilarious when he made all paper hats with crazy phrases. Oh man it was a great time. Many laughs and memories were made that night.

We had a reservation for 15 and was 5 minutes late. They gave our table away. At first I thought no big deal because there was plenty of open tables. After 20 minutes we ask the hostess how much longer and she said she ways waiting for a table. The open tables where in a section that was closed. It was 7pm. Closing time was 10pm. Weird that a section was closed at 7pm. Especially since we where waiting for a table. The staff was rude and unwilling to accommodate our party. All they wanted to do was argue with us. The bar was out of a lot of stuff. The beer the we got was warm and stale. I would never go back to this restaurant and would highly suggest that you don’t either.

Our server was nice but the service was not great. Took 25 min to get our drink order. They ran out of coke and sprite. We ordered appetizers and never received them. When the food finally came out 40 minutes later it was cold. Definitely not what I was hoping for.

We are from Pittsburgh. Was on our vacation to Gatlinburg and decided to make reservations to Dicks Last Resort do we could have a fun experience. It was myself, my husband, my mother and 5 children. We had a coupon for a free kids meal and appetizer, thank god because our bill was about $260 which was mind blowing. We ordered 3 of the big margaritas which were horrible and way too expensive. I much would of rather of gotten a class of water and bought a cup!!! The kids drinks with the souvenir cups were $10 each, nothing was priced so we didnt realize we would be spending $50 on just kid drinks, which is our fault not yours. The food we ordered was not that great at all, nothing special!!! Our waiter was pretty good, hats were funny, kid friendly. He could have interacted a little more than what he did. I feel like my expectations were a lot higher. Guess it was ok for a one time thing. We can see we went but i will never come back!!! We spent the last of our money here and had none left for other attractions seeing how we budgeted the bill to roughly be $150/175max and we practically doubled that!

This is definitely somewhere to go when you visit Gatlinburg. The menu has a good variety of food, and for the area the prices are average, not cheap, but not expensive either. We took our 10 year old son and knew of the atmosphere so we gave our son a heads up. It’s definitely somewhere you need to go at least once every visit. The servers are great at what they do, and really base their level of “inappropriateness” on the group at the table. We really bantered back and forth with our server, while the family next to us had 3 littler girls and he toned it down for them. The food itself was bigger portion sizes, and came out in a timely manner. The taste was excellent, I had the chicken fried chicken, and the gravy was amazing. M son had the crab legs, and they were delicious. My husband had the ribs and wings, he really liked the wings but said the ribs were ok.

We were told when we went in that there would be insults. We thought OK? We were a group of 4. We were seated at 2 side by side tables even though 1 of these was a 4 top. The noise level was so high that I got a head ache within 3 minutes of being there and conversation was impossible. We kept hearing "Your Momma" and watched wait staff lean down to yell in customers ears. After 10 minutes of waiting to be approached by wait staff, we got up and left. We went diagonal across the corner and had a great quiet meal! Definitely not our cup of tea.
