Description: 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.

Every time I come to Tennessee I have to come here! It's really good food for reasonable prices. Also, customer service is pretty great too!

We went with our family the last week of the year and the burgers are excellent. This is a three story facility in the heart of Gatlinburg (I'm not sure they have an elevator). Main seating is on the second floor and the area is spacious and perfect for family dinners/lunches. Service was very good and food was brought all... More

The food, drinks, it all great. In warmmer weather they have a balcony that you can sit on & injoy your dinner & some times they contribute to the night life with the DJ & dance floor.

Several of us seniors spent New Year's Eve here and were somewhat disappointed. The food was good, drinks average but the music was geared to the younger crowed and we listened to bump and grind all evening. Not one slow song was played. Couldn't understand the lyrics to most of the songs played by the DJ and it seemed the... More

Went to Blain's for dinner before a show. The wait was Quick, but the hostess was not too friendly. Our waitress was nice. The food came out quickly and everyone enjoyed their meal. The atmosphere was very family friendly. Overall a good experience.

We decided to grab an appetizer plate here on New Year's Day because my husband wanted to watch Alabama and Ohio play. The appetizer plate was good but a little cold. The service was good and the beer was pretty cheap for most sports bars in touristy areas. We are on the upper level in the sports bar so it... More
