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.

Good Food

The food was great! However, we decided that we wanted to eat on the balcony. It was very warm out and the balcony is covered and they lowered the screens to block the sun, but, there are no fans to keep the air moving and we all got so warm that we were unable to finish our dinner and one... read more

Blaine's is typical of what Gatlinburg has become -- a low rent, smelly, bar-hopping tourist rip-off. The food was mediocre, the service staff seemed bored and uninspired and the clientele was loaded (and I don't mean with money.) People were screaming from the balcony like it was Mardis Gras without the beads. The A/C was FREEZING and the place just... More

Ate there twice. Food both times was excellent. Service was good. If one enters from the Parkway, stairs must be climbed to second floor. Restrooms are on third floor. If one enters from the side street, Historic Nature Trail Road, the elevator can be taken to second floor. Decor was very nice. Good for families as well as couples.

This was a nice place to eat, right in the middle of Gatlinburg. The food was moderately-priced with a nice selection. The food was good, service was very good, and the place was very clean. The only trouble is it is up a flight of stairs, didn't see an elevator. Maybe I missed it.

Decent Restaurant. Not over priced like a lot of Gatlinburg. They have an Ole Smoky Moonshine drink on tap that is awesome! We sat on the patio outside and had a great view of downtown while we were eating.

We usually just stop in to Blaine's for a break, grab a beer and do some people watching form the upstairs ope bar. It over looks the strip. Service is a inconsistent, bathrooms are not stocked.

After waiting 20 minutes for a table outside to enjoy the beautiful view. I regretfully say that was the only thing enjoyable of meal. We had deluxe nachos which were good except more chips and nachos, rack of ribs which were good if the waitress would've ever come back to ask if everything was OK so I could get more... More

Visited with hubby after stopping by other eating holes and came across Blaine's. Prices were good and best from other competitors (Friday's, Applebee's ect). I had the best salad ever (strawberry chicken salad) and hubby felt Italian with spaghetti and meatballs. All food was excellent and we will be returning customers. Nice atmosphere with seating available outside (we opted in... More

I had read reviews from trip-advisor and decided to go to Blaine's to get drinks and relax. The waitress was friendly but not knowledgeable about the bar drinks taking 3 trips and a wrong price on the cocktail I ordered. The cocktails had little or no alcohol, I ordered my next cocktail with the shot on the side with cranberry... More
