Description: Bradley's Pit BBQ & Grill is home to East Tennessee’s 4-Star Award Winning fresh hickory smoked BBQ. A family owned and operated establishment that has been a growing favorite for the locals and tourists traveling up and down Interstate 75. We are located off Exit 60. While you're in town, also visit the antique district of Sweetwater and The Lost Sea. If you’re cravin' the the real stuff…. We have the best around! From the fall off the bones ‘All you can eat’ pork ribs to the tender beef brisket, all barbecue is smoked on premises in an authentic pit. Also available is the smoked chicken, pulled pork and pulled turkey. If you're not in the mood for barbecue, we offer steaks, seafood and country favorites. Don’t forget the homemade sides, all made from family recipes, such as – potato salad, coleslaw, macaroni salad or our famous baked beans. Whether you save room…or have to take it with you, be sure to try one of our several homemade desserts from our most popular blackberry cobbler to the best carrot cake you've ever tried. Stop in and see us! Open 7 days for lunch and dinner! Carryout is also available.

Stopped here on a whim on our way through Tennessee. We made the right decision. We were greeted immediately and shown to our table. Our server quickly brought us our drink order (sweet tea $1.99). My companion had a half-rack of Smoked Baby Back Ribs with sides of collard greens and fried okra ($14.99). I ordered the Smoked Shredded Pork... More

On our way back from a trip to Georgia. We wanted some southern BBQ before we made it back to Ohio and this place didn't disappoint. Yummy smoked turkey and the sides were all delicious. Especially the homemade chips. My hubby's steak was cooked perfectly and my kids cleaned their plates as well. We all ate a ton, and the... More

Not normally a big BBQ person but the beef brisket was very good. Service was ok, but the restaurant was busy.

BBQ was good but the service was poor. The all you can eat ribs seemed like the "as long as you can wait ribs".

Awesome BBQ! The pork was least favorite. Chicken and beef was awesome. Homemade apple sauce was awesome. Homemade chips were awesome. Baked beans were tasty! Not spicy or smokey tasting. You must eat here.

Typical BBQ restaurant. Wasn't anything outstanding but it was a good choice for a nice sit down family meal instead of fast food on the road. My son's steak was perfection. My husband and daughter thoroughly enjoyed their ribs. And my hamburger was too big for me to finish. Service was okay. When we stopped in, the A/C was working... More

New to area my husband and I ventured out to the hopping metropolis that is Sweetwater looking for dinner before we finished unpacking. With reluctance he suggested we try this local BBQ joint he happened by the other day. While we have lived in East Tennessee since 2010 (we moved from South Georgia), we have yet to find, and believe... More

Living in the Sweetwater area I eat at Bradley's on a regular basis and have yet to be disapointed. The restaurant has a very comfertable atmosphere, the food is always hot and brought to my table very quickly, and the servers have always been sweet and attentive. If you are in the near Sweetwater Bradley's is a must!

the young waitress should give people enough time to get seated before she asks what would you like to drink in a low voice we could barely hear her. Then we've barely had enough time to open the menu when she is asking if we know what we want. Maybe regulars already know what they want but we didn't. The... More

Went here for dinner Saturday and was truly disappointed -- for starters: ordered 1 sweet and 1 unsweetened tea, they both came out sweet. The servers were outfitted in very nasty aprons/shirts. Then the food - absolutely terrible. We both ordered pulled chicken. It was hard, dry, and cold. The baked potato was half baked. The only thing warm was... More
