Shopping Centre
“Turkey Creek has dining, entertainment, shopping, dessert boutiques, and is basically your all-inclusive stop for the whole family. The Regal Cinema Theater is STUNNING! I remember seeing the neon lights for the first time at night when I moved here and though to myself..."Wow. Now THAT is a theater". Ohhh boy, and trust me it doesn't disappoint either. An ABSOLUTE MUST is the 4DX movie theater. The seats move as if you're on a ride at your favorite amusement park. I'm talking full tint, unexpected laughter, and a true movie experience that is UNFORGETTABLE! The theater actually can rain...rain...yes, it's that advanced. It's almost as if you're put into the movie itself. It's one of the most state of the art theaters out there. Plus, you have the 3D showings, regular 2D showings, along with extended hours and special features for certain movies. Shopping-There are simply too many to list but none that I don't love! Kid-friendly shops, pet stores, apparel, home decor/furniture, hobby shops, and shops for the tech-lovers. Restaurants-SOOO many good ones. But my three personal faves are Connor's Steak and Seafood (super nice and romantic), Kabuki (AMAZING sushi-ask for Dichka! Tell her Erica & Jay sent you. She makes that business the most unforgettable experience with her customer service, beautiful heart, and attention to detail. She has our personal orders memorized!). Last but most certainly not least-Schakolad Chocolate Factory! That's right. Chocolate baby....I'm talking whole lotta chocolate. The owners are local and I love supporting their business. They are in there early and stay late. They dip my "usual" order of fresh strawberries right in front of me to watch and then flash freeze them while we talk for a minute so I can enjoy my treats only moments later after leaving. They have fresh gelato and TONS of beautiful cordials, truffles, and specialty chocolates that decorate their display cases. Just talking about it brings back the amazing smell of this place. It's my personal favorite for a dessert that offers more than a quick bite. Their service and willingness to provide the most educational chocolate experience are so cool. On the first Monday of each month, they offer a closed-door event for people to dip their own chocolates and make their own treats while learning about the history of chocolate. Just be sure to call and book ahead. It fills up quickly. How cool would this be for a work event or family night out that's interactive and conveniently located!”

“Our waitress, Alexis Mayuex, did a phenomenal job the entire time we were at the table. She didn’t leave our drinks empty, constantly refilled our bread, and made our experience one to never forget!! I hope the that next few customer get the pleasure of having her as a waitress. I will most definitely request her next time I come in! I will also always recommend the Turkey Creek location because of their amazing service!”

“This is our favorite go-to for early dinners. If you plan to dine after 4pm, reservations are a must. The lobster bisque is outstanding and their raw bar Tuna tar tar is to die for.”

“If you find yourself in West Knoxville, shopping at Turkey Creek or Costco, this is local coffee roaster in a converted auto repair shop. The coffee can't be beat and the honey lavender latte is a customer favorite! ”

“Last year, while on vacation, we went to the Smoky Mountain Brewery in Pigeon Forge. That visit was forgettable and a reviewed it as so. For Father’s Day, I was treated to dinner at the Knoxville restaurant. Everything that I had previously loved about Smoky Mountain Brewery was evident in Knoxville. Our waiter Joe was great and constantly checked up on us and removed dirty plates and dishes. The beer sampler I had was very good, with the Black Bear being my favorite. The price for the sampler is very good too; this time I had 6 beer samples for $7. I once again went with my favorite steak, the Brewery ‘Ale’ Steak, and it was perfect. ”

“This course is great for golfers of all abilities! The front tee’s for the intermediate golfer and the back tee’s for those who want to test their abilities. Willow creek has a great driving range, a big putting green and a separate chipping area.”
