Stuck directly in the middle of the tourist trap that is Gatlinburg Tennessee you will find the Smokey Mountain Brewery and thank god for that. The atmosphere is alright but not great. It just seems like a normal restaurant. The bartender on this particular night was very cool. He accommodated us with anything we needed. The beer was good especially their Appalachian Pale Ale is the best offer. AT the time of my visit they had four of their brews on tap which isn't great but better than one. As far as food goes I would recommend their BBQ it was very tasty. If you must vist Gatlinburg it is worth the stop.

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.
