“great place to get away”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

we stayed at honeymoon hills which is like home away from home and we were looking for a place to get away from all the traffic to get a bite to eat. we found a place called skiddy's on the way to the cabin and stopped in. the locals treated like they knew us and made us feel right at home. we played corn hole and asked about the food. everyone stated the food was great and that was an understatement. the food was excellent and so was the establishment and the people working there!!! we look forward to returning.....

Thanks so much for taking the time to post your review. We look forward to your return to the Great Smoky Mountains and of course Skiddy's Place. We are a small bar with locals, first time tourists and returning tourists that become a part of our extended family just like you. So we'll keep the beer cold & food on the grill till your next visit.

Sincerely, Edwina

I am a local here in Sevierville Tennessee and love going to Skiddy's! Wonderful service, great prices, delicious food and a very fun atmosphere! Also, they have a nice guy that comes in every thursday and performs karaoke and music, which makes it an enjoyable time with great people! 5 stars!!!

“Gatlinburg isn't done justice without local beerhalls.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Now, 'Excellent' is a very subjective rating. I rated Skiddy's 'Excellent' because I felt like I was in my hometown 'locals only' bar despite being 900 miles away. My wife and I had rented a nearby cabin and were very disenfranchised with the tourist trap watering holes (and their prices! My god!). Skiddy's was not only very affordable for the simple tastes we have, but a very welcoming environment full of some of the most agreeable people you'll ever share a bar counter with. So much so that in a four-day visit we actually went there two separate evenings. In particular, the bartender CJ was a joy to make conversation with and remembered who we were upon the lone second time we had ever been there.

I can't really speak for the food, though we were told very good things from the regulars, except for getting a basket of cheese curds which were just dynamite. Skiddy's will be a stop (or two!) on our visits to the smoky mountains anytime!

“Beer, beer, beer, great bartender and great food.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

I give it an very good not because there is anything wrong with it but it is an average kind of place and average is darn good sometimes when you want relaxed, easy, affordable and nothing fancy. CJ was our bartender, she was great, welcoming, fun to chat with and does her job very well. She cooked our dinner too and those burgers were delicious. We met some locals and a couple of out of towners. We planned to stay for a beer and a bite and three and a half hours later we had to rush to leave to take care of our dogs. Video poker is a hidden, ridiculous fun thing...

“It's a bar.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

To start, I have to say I like Skiddys. It's run by locals for locals. It's a bar. With bar food. And bar beer. And bar patrons. And the same fine folks are there daily. Sort of a "Cheers" effect. A welcome effect. You might walk into a corn hole tournament. Or karaoke night. Or a band. Yes, live music. It can be found. It's not a chain bar with everyone staring into the abyss of their "smart" phones getting dumber. It's not a biker bar with all of the weekender yuppies in their Harley branded garb from head to toe talking about the latest piece of chrome on what might be a motorcycle under all that junk. It's good people who converse, welcome you to an empty seat, and tell you come back when you leave. Order the Philly with fries and get yourself a bud light on draft. You're among friends.
