About the Park Grill in Gatlinburg

Our Smoky Mountain Restaurant

Our Gatlinburg restaurant sits right next to the entrance of the beautiful Great Smoky Mountains National Park, making us the unofficial restaurant of the park. When you visit us, you’ll enjoy a true, Smoky Mountain dining experience. We’ve designed our restaurant to feel like you’re dining in the heart of the Smokies, using wood from old spruce trees to form the exterior and stone from fences in Cosby to create a rustic mountain lodge atmosphere for the interior. Not to mention, our menu includes all the classic flavors of Southern Appalachia, all the way from our hickory-grilled steaks to our bountiful salad bar. Whether you’re in the area for a hike with your family or a romantic dinner for two, we’re looking forward to having you at The Park Grill.

The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is the most visited national park in the United States. But unlike other national parks, there is no restaurant that sits within the park’s boundaries. That’s where we come in. Because of our incredible location next to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park’s entrance, we are the perfect place for hungry travelers to grab a bite to eat after exploring everything the Smokies have to offer. Plus, our location is easy for guests to find and get into, and we offer free parking on-site!

Our Gatlinburg restaurant is the perfect ending to your busy day of exploring the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and Gatlinburg. Bring the whole family to enjoy a special Smoky Mountain dining experience at The Park Grill. To get an inside look at our Gatlinburg restaurant, visit our photo gallery.

Our Mountain Lodge
