We happened upon the Moonshine Ridge Country Store and were glad we did! We bought all kinds of treats! It was so much fun tasting the jams, jellies, dips, BBQ sauces, salad dressings, chow chows, and pickles! Great candy and fudge selections. Everyone working there is friendly and helpful!

Stopping at Moonshine Ridge is something we do each time we visit the Smoky Mountains. They offer very unique gift items, tees, and homemade jams, jellies, salsas, pickles, hot sauces and candy. There are samples of each to taste and make sure it's what you want. I've never been disappointed with anything I've ever purchased. The seedless blackberry jam is... More

A Cracker Barrel off the beaten path. Enjoyed this shop, had unique gift items. A jelly/jam tasting. The jams /jellies and salsa all unique. We especially loved and purchased the pecan butter a praline type spread in a jar, heaven to the taste buds! A candy shop, a cafe, gift items, this place had it all! Really glad we stopped... More

This is not your average gift shop! This is one of the cutest little country stores I've been to. They have all kinds of homemade jellies, jams, salsa, dips, fresh honey, taffy, handmade candies, etc. They have the best fudge hands down!! We tried several different places in Gatlinburg & Pigeon Forge & found nothing close to theirs!! We highly... More

So happy with our visit here! We've been to the cafe many times in the past few years and I have to say it was the best we've had. The food was delicious, and filled you up, for a good price. We had the brisket and it was absolutely amazing! I'll be back just for that. The couple running it... More

Off the beaten track off the parkway. Real comfortable, EZ going employees. Ssampled a few moonshines and it was fun. They need to beef up the inventory; but, looks to be a new concern, so likely is a work in motion.

Pamela, I believe you have the wrong business for this post as we do not sell nor sample Moonshine at our establishment. We are a family oriented Country Gift Store and café that samples a wide variety of salsas jellies and sauces, not to mention the best fudge in the Smoky's. We have a fully stocked store and very friendly... More

The nicest people work in this lovely gift and souvenir shop. With all the people they see daily, they are still patient and helpful and quick to smile. Beautiful selection of gifts and most are reasonably priced. Purchased a few Christmas presents since they were unusual and not something I will find locally. They offer free tasting of the sauces,... More

There are a lot of "country stores" in this area and most are fun to visit. Most have the standard supply of tee shirts, cute signs, and souvenirs mad in China. This store is a bit different from those. Lots of local made jams and jellies, fudge and salsas and other foods to taste. The fudge is heavenly, the various... More
