Solitude, serenity, silence!
Remote & private
In a nutshell
Great place to relax and unwind, very laid back atmosphere
Came here after an afternoon of hiking, but before starting the long drive home. Boyd and I likes to stop at local restaurants when we travel (rather than chains), and this one looked perfect. The inside looks like a cabin with wood-paneled walls and woodland decorations, including photos of the Great Smoky Mountains. I ordered the Jack Daniels burger (served on a kaiser roll with french fries) and Boyd ordered the BBQ Pork sandwich (also served with fries). The food came quickly, and was very tasty. A good deal for the price - we enjoyed very much!
The sandwiches, drinks (cola), tax and tip came to ~$25.

The bear's keen sense of smell leads it to nuts and berries, but the animal is also enticed by human food left on a picnic table or offered from an outstretched hand. Feeding bears or allowing them access to human food causes a number of problems:
• Nuisance bears damage property and injure people. In 1993, 110 bear related incidents were recorded and extensive property damage occurred.
• It transforms wild and healthy bears into habitual beggars. Studies have shown that nuisance bears never live as long as wild bears. Many are hit by cars and become easy targets for poachers. Beggar bears may die from ingesting food packaging and aggressive nuisance bears must be destroyed y park managers.
For these reasons, National Park Rangers issue citations for improper food storage and feeding bears. These offenses can result in fines of up to $5,000 and jail sentences lasting up to six months. Visitors are urged to view all wildlife at a safe distance and never to leave food or garbage unattended.

I can't remember who dubbed it that, but it fits. Pigeon Forge, TN offers wall-to-wall tourists, outlet shops, miniature golf, go-carts, bumper boats, water rides, laser games, bungee jumping, and country music theatres...not to mention bumper-to-bumper traffic.
Unique Suggestions: If you have kids and they're bored with the natural beauty of the Smoky Mountains, take a day trip to Pigeon Forge and go to Dollywood, I guess. Then return to Townsend to relax again.
