Writing about this restaurant in particular is rather difficult for this blog-writer as I haven’t actually been able to go there. And the reason I haven’t been able to go there is because it’s always almost entirely filled with locals and out-of-town visitors every time I pass by. To say The Local Goat is one of the bigger restaurant hits since the mid-2010s here in Pigeon Forge is a sizable understatement and there’s clearly something there of enormous quality that keeps bringing people in by the truckloads.
