I stopped here with several other hikers while passing through the Smokies on the AT. We hit Gatlinburg on an April weekday, and the streets and restaurants were empty. Rumors of karaoke lured us to the Smoky Mountain Brewery, and the beer and food surprised us as being better than expected. We got a flight of six of their drafts, and they were excellent. Our tolerance for alcohol was weakened by our time in the woods, and thus a full review of the beers is marred, but rest assured that the samples were quality. Our food tasted great and was large enough for our hiker appetites, and the waitstaff was very friendly. The only downside is the girl giving her boyfriend a lap dance three feet in front of me while I sang "Livin' on a Prayer", but the story is worth the price. I heartily recommend Smoky Mountain Brewery.

Came here after a long day of hiking Mount Leconte. We were staying in Gatlinburg anyway, so figured we'd check this place out. Very much the feel of a ski-lodge pub. Big place, with two levels of bar and dining area. The food was okay, what you'd expect for a pub in a touristy area, I guess. We ordered a sampler of their beers and all of them were sub-par in my opinion, but again, aimed at the masses. I doubt the beer comes first here. In fact, I know the beer doesn't come first here because every table around me had a crying baby at it. They must have hated the beer even more than I did.
I honestly expected Gatlinburg to be more like a Jackson Hole, WY or North Conway, NH, but it's more like a hillbilly Vegas strip or Niagra Falls minus the gambling. At least downtown was like this, but as I drove out of that sad little town I was met with the same cheap tourist traps in places like Pigeon Forge. It made my heart sad.
