This is the joint your mama warned you about. Dick’s serves up buckets of barbecued ribs, chicken, catfish, shrimp and crab legs. Platters include steaks, crabby cakes, salmon, chicken and even salads for the wimpy eater. Lunch includes sandwiches, salads and buckets of good food. The wait staff is irreverent by design, and the decor is local garage-sale stuff. Dick"s offers a full bar. No cover, no dress code, and definitely no class. Come see why we are the "Shame of Pigeon Forge"

Dick’s Last Resort is definitely a different dining experience! It’s not for people who lack a sense of humor or get upset being teased, because it’s all in good fun. We took my son there for his 16th birthday and it’s one he will not forget! Our waiter Dan was great! He was surprised at our suggestion to whip cream my son, but definitely obliged! Thank you all for a great time! Highly recommended for some great belly laughs!!

Expensive price for poor quality and small portions we barely saw our waiter never mind being heckled by him. Requested in writing a 20 or 40 dollar tip for a 75 dollar bill. Charged $10.00 for a draft beer. Don’t waste your money

Food was good and server was fun and energetic. Language of servers was a bit over the top for young kids with us but they seemed to enjoy themselves. Overall a fun time with good food.

Our first time there, enjoyed the interaction with the waiters, she was very good. Took a long time for the food to get to the table, when it did fries were cold, shrimp was overcooked, bacon cheeseburger had no bacon. One person in our party had steak and it was very good.

This was our 1st & last experience at Dick's. An HOUR after being seated, our order was brought out to another table, passed out, picked back up, taken back to the kitchen & brought back out to our table a few minutes later. We witnessed all of this. When I questioned our waitress (Cassandra), she just got nasty. The manager came out & said what we had witnessed didn't actually happen, but he would bring us a new order if that's what we wanted. We were afraid of what would happen to our new order after complaining, so we declined. Cassandra continued to be EXTRA rude. (I feel, beyond what her "character" called for). Our food was dry, as if it had been sitting for a long time. It was definitely not freshly cooked. Two of our meals had been removed from the receipt & Cassandra scribbled out the tip % area on our receipt. I still paid nearly $80 for an AWFUL meal.
We were really having a good time with the hats, being silly before the food mishap, so it made my husband & myself upset over our experience. :( :( :( :( :( :( :(

We went to Dick’s to celebrate a teenage boys 16th birthday. Waitress wasn’t snarky or anything. Hats we were given we lamest of all around. Food was overpriced and mediocre. So wanted to celebrate but ended up waiting and waiting and waiting for our food. The wait for the food, the non celebratory birthday, everything was a huge disappointment. I will not eat there ever again.

We went to this restaurant only for our two grandchildren, ages 9 and 12. We had taken them to the Dick's Last Resort in Gatlinburg last year and they had so much fun. That was not the case this time.
We arrived at 600pm and that may have been too early but we were seated at a long table with no one else sitting there. Our waitress seemed very uninspired. She made none of the brash, insulting remarks that we experienced last year or other tables were enjoying. She simply took our orders and spent a lot of time making our hats. The hats were humorous but that was the extent of any humorous interaction. Eventually two other couples were seated at our table but I noted she treated them the same way as she did us. Incidentally the food was not particularly good and certainly overpriced. I would never, ever go back to this restaurant. Was very disappointed we had not driven down to Gatlinburg.

We had reservations here but we didn't get to eat - they were so understaffed that we waited around for 15 minutes or so, finally said we would sit at the bar but then since they were so short staffed the manager put everyone that was waiting for a table at the bar high tops (meaning probably 15-20 people were seated at the bar area AT ONE TIME. The poor bartender was so overwhelmed taking orders it took another 10 minutes to get our water. We decided to bail. We were looking forward to this. I think they need to solve their staffing issue.

We had heard really great things about dicks so we checked it out. We were super disappointed! The wait stuff wasn’t just sarcastic, they were rude. Which I could look past but others in party were not impressed. Food was decent but way over priced. I would recommend try it one time just to say you have but wouldn’t probably return.

Celebrated my daughter’s 19th Birthday there. It was fun and family friendly. However, the busier it got the less attention our table got, so that was disappointing.

The only reason i would go is for the laughs. The food is overpriced and not good. If you don’t have thick skin and able to take a joke don’t go.
We laughed so much so for that reason i would return.

A little pricey for the quality of food. Our party of 4 ordered a chicken ceaser salad, a steakhouse salad, cheddar bacon burger, mozzarella sticks, fried pickles, 3 sodas and a water and the total was 75.94. The food was no better than Applebees. The steak salad was not as described on the menu but still tasted ok. Even with the sub par food we had a good time.

We went as a group of 22 between when the first person getting their food and the last one it was about 25 minutes. I can see 10 minutes but 25 is excessive. One gentleman ordered several vodka and Red Bull and was charged for grey goose vodka. Who mixes a drink with high end liquor unless requested. The manager said he was “in training” waitress was ok. Have had a much funner time at other DLR.

My friend and I visited Dick's for the first time after hiking. We came with high hopes, as we know of many people who have had a lot of fun eating at other Dick's in Nashville or elsewhere. Our waitress took over thirty minutes to get us drinks. The only food that was remotely enjoyable were the pickle chips. We were there for two hours without reason. Our waitress pretty much neglected our table, and we never even got Dick's signature hats with the insults written on them, which had been the whole point behind our visit. Our table, which was a community table, was uncomfortable, since the other four people at our table had an entirely different vibe than we had. There were a few laughs, but all of them came from watching other waitresses interact with their guests. With the long wait for service, one of the other table members started getting aggressive. Additionally, the food is incredibly overpriced. I wish we'd gone elsewhere.

Waiter was sarcastically hilarious! We laughed as we responded with hilarious sarcasm with him. It was all in good fun and if you are easily offended with sarcastically humorous remarks, DO NOT visit here!
However, if you can give and receive sarcastically humorous remarks, then by all means GO AND ENJOY!
I had ribs And fries which were very good. I will visit this particular one again in the future.
THANKS ALOT DICKS! 💦😂💦

Wait staff were entertaining but alcoholic drink was overpriced . $15 and barely got a buzz. Waiter did not provide water. I appreciate the jokes but the chicken was dry and the food was just overall bad. I spent $100 for two people and the food was terrible and overpriced.

The server was great and made our experience a blast, but the food came out wrong and the 1st manager we dealt with tried to argue about how our steaks were cooked. He took them back and had to fire 2 more steaks after us telling them to just take it off. The 2nd manager was great the steaks were finally right but everyone else in our 6 person party was already done and waiting for us. They did take the steaks off the bill but manager was very rude and not in the Dicks last resort fun way.

The food was truly terrible. Even the French fries had no seasoning, no flavor at all. Fish is better at fast food restaurant and took almost an hour to be served once seated. You pay for the show which is rude waiters saying crude things. I knew that going in. They really try to entertain and some are much better than others. Would be fun once with your rowdy friends.

After reading all the “negative” reviews we decided to still go. I’m so happy we did. The food and drinks were sooooo good. I had the Cajun pasta. You have to have a sense of humor to
Come here. It was sooo much fun. We will definitely be back!
