My husband and I travel to Gatlinburg 2-3 times a year. Blaine's is always our first stop to wind down and have some drinks. Thomas and Shane are absolutely the best bartenders in Gatlinburg. It is nice to go back to a place and the same employees are there and actually recognize you. I believe that having personnel stay on is a sign of good management. While I would not characterize Blaine's as a "sports bar" like BW3's or Puckers, this is our favorite place to watch a game. The bar has several large screen televisions, big bar area with tables and booths besides the very comfortable bar.
We normally have appetizers and never have a complaint. The food is good, however I cannot comment on the dinners as we usually just have the "bar food". You can order from the main menu in the bar area also if you like.
Looking forward to returning in March and Blaine's will be our first stop again!
