Description: Casual Dining in Downtown Gatlinburg, TN Blaine's Grill & Bar is located...
Casual Dining in Downtown Gatlinburg, TN Blaine's Grill & Bar is located on the site originally known as Rebel Corner which burned down July, 1992. The fire destroyed one whole city block, owned by Mr. Smith's family. Home from college for the summer, Kirby watched the block burn to the ground, and then left college to help his family rebuild the block. He decided to open a restaurant/night club where Rebel Corner originally stood. Blaine's Grill and Bar was established January 1998 by Kirby Smith. Mr. Smith descended from one of the original Gatlinburg families & has lived in Gatlinburg all his life. Mr. Smith opened Ronnie Milsap's Keyboard Cafe, January 1995 which he ran under this name until January 1998 where he converted to Blaine's Grill & Bar, striving for a more modern, fun place to come as opposed to the previous country theme. Blaine's Grill and Bar has been a great location for the past ten years for restaurant goers. Our menu serves a great variety of freshly prepared meals and has one of the best views of the Smoky Mountains in Gatlinburg.

The greeter out front who handles seating was ambivalent, seemed somewhere else. But we were seated quickly. This place is built on about three levels and offers outside (balcony) and inside seating. The balcony overlooks busy downtown Gatlinburg. All seating is up two flights of stairs. I did not see an elevator or any directions for those mobility impaired. Also,... More

This place was pretty rad. All we had were drinks but the servers were cool and chatty. Didn't feel so one stop tourist bar. Def worth a stop!

Honestly there was nothing "great" about Blaines but everything was good-very good. I had ribs which were a little too saucy for my taste but were definitely very tender and probably exactly what most people are looking for when they order ribs. Another person at our table had the steak and shrimp fajitas. The shrimp was delicious but the steak... More
