The 5 Best Steakhouses in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg
There is nothing like a nice steak dinner! Visitors to Tennessee’s Smoky Mountains will find a number of wonderful steakhouses that are perfect for a special date or a celebration with the whole family. To help you make the most of your vacation, Acorn Cabin Rentals has put together a guide to the five best steakhouses in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg.
1. Alamo Steakhouse
The Alamo Steakhouse boasts that they have “the most awesome food from here to Texas”, and we don’t disagree! All of the steaks at the Alamo Steakhouse are aged, hand cut, seasoned in-house, and grilled over an oak fire that locks in juices and natural flavors. In addition to their mouthwatering steaks, the Alamo Steakhouse is known for their salmon, baked sweet potatoes, and salads.
2. The Peddler Steakhouse
The Peddler Steakhouse has been delighting visitors and locals alike for over 40 years! This beloved restaurant offers naturally aged steaks that are grilled over Tennessee hickory charcoal for a distinctively delicious taste. The Peddler features a lovely atmosphere and beautiful views of the West Prong of the Little Pigeon River from the back dining room, bar, and covered pavilion. We suggest taking advantage of The Peddler’s call ahead seating, as this restaurant is very popular on weekend evenings.
3. Bullfish Grill
Bullfish Grill is another one of the most popular steakhouses in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. Guests will enjoy aged Grand Champion Angus Beef that is always cooked to perfection. Along with its selection of incredible steaks, Bullfish Grill also offers spectacular seafood dishes, including seared ahi tuna, blackened tilapia, cilantro lime grilled shrimp, and pan-seared crab cakes. Be sure to save room for dessert, because the caramel apple funnel cake a la mode is out of this world!
4. Greenbrier Restaurant
The Greenbrier Restaurant features one of the most unique atmospheres in the Smokies. Located in an historic log cabin built in 1939, this restaurant is surrounded by beautiful woodland views. Guests will enjoy a variety of USDA choice steaks, including the Filet Mignon, in which the heart of the tenderloin is wrapped in Applewood smoked bacon. Besides steaks, Greenbrier also serves exceptional seafood, chicken, and pasta entrees.
5. Cherokee Grill & Steakhouse
Cherokee Grill & Steakhouse offers fantastic food in the heart of downtown Gatlinburg. Perfect for a date night, this restaurant has an upscale mountain lodge ambiance that sets the mood for a romantic evening.
