We went to celebrate my birthday. The food was awful. I sent mine back. The meat looked like it was frozen processed and the potatoes were so cold the cheese wouldn't even melt. The drinks were way overpriced. The atmosphere was cool but we were sat outside and not even asked if that was okay.

Stopped here for lunch since we had never been here before. Despite a long line to even get in for lunch, we only had to wait about fifteen minutes. Seated at a high top table in the bar area, we ordered lunch- burgers and tator tots plus cornbread. The tator tots were pretty awesome and unique but very tasty. Burger was good and satisfactory. Cornbread was good but was a bit dry and crumbly. There was a stage performance which was cool. Our seating didn’t allow us to see the stage well so that was a bit of a bummer but overall it was a very good experience. I’d love to come back again for the music and drinks in the evening because I bet it is great. Overall we liked it and would recommend to others.

We were visiting Gatlinburg and since we were looking for some place to have a cold drink I suggested Ole Red. We were not disappointed Luke the bartender did an awesome job!! Cold drinks and live music-what could be better!!! I am a HUGE Blake Shelton fan and have visited his restaurants in Tishimingo, OK, Nashville, TN and now Gatlinburg, TN!!! Only thing that could have been any better is if we were lucky enough to catch Blake there himself!!!

Stopped in for a drink at the bar.....beer was served in plastic glass, not that cold. Live entertainment was nice, but the bartenders decided to have a work spat two feet from us. Guess it’s a bar!
