5 Gatlinburg Area Restaurants to Visit this Valentine’s Day

Time to start planning this year’s lovey-dovey date night for you and your partner!

If you’re visiting the Smokies for Valentine’s Day, you can cook a romantic meal in, or leave the wining and dining to the professionals. If you’d rather go out for your romantic dinner, you should consider visiting an area restaurant for a unique mountain dining experience. With so many delicious options, the most difficult part of your Valentine’s Day should be deciding what to get for dessert! Take out the guesswork by reserving your table for two at one of these intimate eateries.

Steal a Kiss at Greenbrier Restaurant

Like the idea of escaping into the woods together? Greenbrier Restaurant is a rustic Gatlinburg lodge built in the 1930s as a hunting and vacation retreat. The cozy, fireside atmosphere, paired with delicious steak and seafood dishes, brings a whimsical, chalet-like feel to dinner. End the evening with a cocktail from the full bar or something delectable from the dessert menu (or both…treat yourself).

Experience World-Class Service at Bistro 109

If you’re looking for a modern dining experience, Bistro 109 in downtown Sevierville offers an award-winning menu and a sleek, modern atmosphere. Romantic lighting and low-key live entertainment accompany an eclectic menu with options ranging from pasta to glazed duck. Spoil your date and order flowers for the table, or try one of their infamous designer cakes.

Share a Homemade Dessert at the Park Grill


The Park Grill in Gatlinburg has achieved a balance of sophistication and a charming, mountain-cabin vibe. You can’t go wrong with their award-winning ribs, moonshine chicken, or savory steaks. They also feature a full bar for your favorite cocktails, or you and your Valentine can order a drink off the extensive wine list, featuring many local vineyards right here in the Smokies.

Hold Hands at Bullfish Grill

Want to savor regional specialties? Voted Pigeon Forge’s best restaurant, Bullfish Grill serves Southern dishes such as shrimp creole and fried chicken in a contemporary setting. An ideal location on the Parkway in the center of the dining district means you spend less time traveling and more time with your loved one. Don’t forget about a decadent dessert!
