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.

I visited this brewery with my wife and son, while camping and rafting nearby. It was our first trip to Gatlinburg, and the crowds made parking and finding this brewpub a bit of a challenge. The restaurant has an outdoor theme, with a cabin-like feel. The service was friendly, but also a little slow and disorganized, and he got a few things wrong with our orders. However, the welcoming atmosphere made up for the errors. The beer was solidly good, but not outstanding. I enjoyed the IPA and the Stout, which had a smokey quality. The food was typical pub fare, and I had a reasonably good burger. Worth a visit, but not really worth raving about.
