“This is our favorite go-to for early dinners. If you plan to dine after 4pm, reservations are a must. The lobster bisque is outstanding and their raw bar Tuna tar tar is to die for.”

“Last year, while on vacation, we went to the Smoky Mountain Brewery in Pigeon Forge. That visit was forgettable and a reviewed it as so. For Father’s Day, I was treated to dinner at the Knoxville restaurant. Everything that I had previously loved about Smoky Mountain Brewery was evident in Knoxville. Our waiter Joe was great and constantly checked up on us and removed dirty plates and dishes. The beer sampler I had was very good, with the Black Bear being my favorite. The price for the sampler is very good too; this time I had 6 beer samples for $7. I once again went with my favorite steak, the Brewery ‘Ale’ Steak, and it was perfect. ”
