Description: Casual Dining in Downtown Gatlinburg, TN Blaine's Grill & Bar is located on the site originally known as Rebel Corner which burned down July, 1992. The fire destroyed one whole city block, owned by Mr. Smith's family. Home from college for the summer, Kirby watched the block burn to the ground, and then left college to help his family rebuild the block. He decided to open a restaurant/night club where Rebel Corner originally stood. Blaine's Grill and Bar was established January 1998 by Kirby Smith. Mr. Smith descended from one of the original Gatlinburg families & has lived in Gatlinburg all his life. Mr. Smith opened Ronnie Milsap's Keyboard Cafe, January 1995 which he ran under this name until January 1998 where he converted to Blaine's Grill & Bar, striving for a more modern, fun place to come as opposed to the previous country theme. Blaine's Grill and Bar has been a great location for the past ten years for restaurant goers. Our menu serves a great variety of freshly prepared meals and has one of the best views of the Smoky Mountains in Gatlinburg.

“Nice place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

Went up for the weekend, chose Blaine's the first night because it was at the end of the road from our hotel, sat out on the deck, very friendly service, wings were really good, fried pickles were really salty but good, nice place to go.

“Very bad service!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013

Very expensive for what you got! Children's meal was poor! The waitress was rude! We ordered child meal chips and cheese.We got a bowl of cheese and chips . We also ordered chips and cheese for an appetizer. The waitress didn't tell us it was the same thing.we asked her to put melted cheese on child's order and she was rude. We asked if we could share the fajitas and she said no we only give u enough shells for one person.

“Late Night Entertainment”

After 11:00 this place converts into a night club with multiple floors of music and fun.. And its great to just sit out on their deck and drink and watch the world go by.

“We Waited Forever”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

This had to be the most unpleasant experience I have ever had. Total wait to be seated and served 2 hours. Ridiculous. I walked out after 90 minutes and remaining family stayed. I had waited 30 minutes to be seated. We ordered appetizers and a meal. The appetizers came within 15 minutes. Not great but acceptable. I left after another 30 minutes and had a piece of pizza and salad at an arcade near by. My meal was quick, hot and tasty. The rest of the family not so much.

The manager argued with them but finally did not charge for the meal I ordered. No other accommodation, discount or apology was made. My daughter was not able to eat because she had to walk around with her children who could not sit for two hours.

Perhaps we never should have waited to be seated. The hostess said the person upstairs was really slow. The waitress introduced herself by saying " I am new and slow.". UNDERSTATEMENT!!!! Do not waste your time.
