Tried this with my son and wife after the 2015 Mountain Man March, pretty good BBQ for East Tennessee. Expensive and I'd pass on the steaks, they are poor but the BBQ is pretty good.

We started a four day workshop in the Smoky's with a dinner at Bennetts in Gatlinburg, we had 11 of us for dinner. The food was excellent and tasty. The service was good, a little slow, but that allowed us to get to know our group. The four rating was closer to 5. The wife and I have eaten at... More

The ribs were just great! fell off the bone like they said. The smoked chicken was good too and my husband loved the way they cooked the beans and corn on the cob. My pulled pork sandwich was a little salty and smothered in sauce. would have preferred plain pulled pork so I could add my own sau Still, we... More

If you like saucy ribs, Bennett's your place. I enjoy dry ribs that I add the sauce to. Their salad bar is a little creamy. So if creamy is what you enjoy, Bennett's your place. I like my coleslaw where I can enjoy the cabbage. Family oriented. Convenient to downtown.

This is our first meal stop on our annual trek to the mountains. We are never disappointed! BBQ is delicious as well as all the sides. Reasonably priced too.

We had heard this rated 1st for the last several years and we can agree. We sat outside on the covered patio. The service as excellent. I ordered the corn not knowing it was a small corn cob that had

We ate here twice while we were in the area. Lucky for us, Rob was our waiter both times. He was very attentive to our needs. Between us, we had the beef brisket, the burnt ends and the hog legs. It was all good! We always had the barbeque baked beans and also tried the deep fried corn. They offer... More

My family enjoyed a great dinner here. Service was great. Food was great. Price is decent, considering that we were in Gatlinburg. We had the BBQ ribs, which are pretty good. I wouldn't say that the ribs were the best I've ever had, but they were still really good. The sides are decent and they have a pretty good kid's... More

My husband and I went to Bennett's tonight. We wanted BBQ. Many places we found on trip advisor had closed. We are staying near Pigeon Forge. We asked locals and no one could really give us a good place to go. We found Bennetts in Pigeon Forge. Be advised - on Trip Advisor they give 2 locations. One location did... More

I was craving BBQ so my husband and I stopped here for lunch on a Saturday. I enjoyed my BBQ chicken plate and my husband liked his brisket. Their Mac-n-cheese was made from pepper jack and it was amazing! I really liked the garlic cheddar biscuits that came with the meals. I should've ordered a basket of it! The sweet... More
