I would rate this a 1 based on the service but the food was good. I will not return though due the poor service and the smoke.

So my sister and I were going to go eat there but once you opened the door you are greeted with a blast of stale and new cigarette smell and smoke. I’ve been smoke free now for almost 2 years and my sister is sensitive...to that smell. To bad too the menu read good.More

I LOVED THIS PLACE! I wish there was one in my home town. Food was amazing! Drinks were even better. Our server was very friendly and personable. Prices were good. Atmosphere was exactly what we wanted. I will be back there wvery single time I...come to Knoxville. We all agreed it was the best time out of our whole weekend. Do yourself a favor and visit!!More

Took friends there for lunch before they flew back to NY. Prices are very reasonable and the food was good and portions were big. Was able to sit outside and enjoy the sun while eating. Great experience there! Will keep going back.

Good Food and reasonable prices, the only thing is that even in the non smoking part it smelled like smoke. That aside the appetizers and food we had were really good.

This can easily be your new corner pub. that place where you are expecting Norm in the door. Good food specials as well as drink specials. Something goofy is always going on.

You can't go wrong when you stop into Buckethead Tavern in Knoxville, Tennessee. The owner, Troy, is a True Southern Gentleman who knows how to run a fantastic establishment.

This place has pretty average food and service. It's 21+ so they allow smoking. If you have asthma, like me, DON'T GO! They have a non-smoking section which is like the non-peeing section of a swimming pool. If it wasn't for the smoke, I might...return, but I can't breathe in here so I don't see me returning.More

Service was good, food was okay! Open air bar seating was pleasant. Typical bar selection. Nice touch, manager stopped by the table.
