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.

We stopped for lunch just as we did 2 years ago and both times we had a pleasant experience. The service was quick and the food was very good. The atmosphere is better than one would expect for the price.

Blaines has become a tradition for us for the last 3 years. Their hamburgers are the best. I will never forget my son who was 15 at time asked if he could go back and thank the cook for his awesome hamburger. The food is excellent the service is great. It is right downtown in Gatlinburg so you can walk around do some site seeing then stop in and relax and have a good lunch or dinner. We recommend this place to all our friends.

We arrived in Gatlinburg starving when we came across Blaines. We asked for outdoor dining, which is on the 2nd floor. It was a little loud from the street traffic as it is directly on the strip. But we had a great view of all the tourists/shoppers and was able to do some people watching while we ate. The restaurant has typical "bar and grill" food and it was good, no complaints. The waitress did tell us that at a certain hour (10pm maybe?) they move the tables and have a DJ with dancing etc. We didn't make it back for that so I can't comment, but seems as though it may be one of the few places in the area that offered it. Be warned, if you don't like or can't climb stairs, the bathroom is located on the 3rd floor. Would definitely eat here again if we ever go back.

We went there pretty late, but they still accommodated us and ensured we didn't have to sleep empty stomach ;-). I will certainly recommend the Fried Trout. The trout was nice and fresh. The hostess provided a great service and also managed to customize a pasta dish for one of my friends who is a veggie. And as per him the pasta was one of the best he has had.
