The Bullfish Grill: Great Seafood & Disappointing Steaks
Local Expert's Rating:
3.5 / 5
The Bottom Line:

Steer clear of the overpriced steaks, but the seafood and desserts are worth trying. The Sunday Brunch is not to be missed.

The Bullfish Grill, which opened several years ago, is located next to The Inn at Christmas Place near Light #2A in Pigeon Forge. The cozy lighting, soft music, romantic atmosphere, and great service have made the Bullfish Grill a favorite restaurant for couples visiting the areas.

Unless you like mediocre cuts of overpriced beef, steer clear of the ribeye, filet mignon, and filet medallions. These steaks, which had an awful plate presentation, were simultaneously both chewy and tough. Considering this place bills itself as a steakhouse specializing in “Grand Champion Angus Beef,” I was quite disappointed in both the quality and the tenderness of my steak.

While the steak fell short of my expectations, the following menu standouts are worth mentioning:

  • House Bread (Included) – Excellent bread with a crisp and buttery exterior and soft inside.
  • Mozzarella Sticks ($6.99) – The mozzarella sticks are lightly fried and served with a tangy marinara sauce.
  • Seafood Entrées ($15.99 to $22.99) – All of the seafood, which is delivered fresh daily, is cooked perfectly and tastes fresh. The roasted red pepper cream sauce tastes wonderful on top of the fresh catch!
  • Funnel Cake Apple Stack ($5.99) – If you can imagine a high-speed collision between an apple pie and a funnel cake, you have a good idea of what this dessert tastes like. It is topped with vanilla ice cream and a hot caramel sauce.

Although I was disappointed with the steaks, the high-quality seafood and delicious desserts make this a good option for couples.
