PIGEON FORGE (WATE) - A development that opened last month in Pigeon Forge has snagged a big name restaurant.

The Island in Pigeon Forge, which opened June 21, has inked a deal with Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville.

The island-themed restaurant is scheduled to open by Valentine's Day 2014 in the south end of the development.

Mayor David Wear told 6 News in March that Margaritaville had been in a holding pattern for some time, but that plans were starting to move forward in light of the passage of a law that allows restaurants to sell liquor by the drink.
