Iron Boar Saloon is a biker bar with a dedicated mission to serve high quality food in a friendly, casual setting. While they are open from 11:00 a.m. to 10:30 p.m., you may have difficulty getting beer if you arrive after 9:00 p.m. Go early to enjoy the full flavor of the Iron Boar Saloon experience.

The atmosphere inside the saloon is creative and casual — think neon beer signs, biker memorabilia, and rustic bric a brac, such as motorcycle tires suspended from the ceiling. The outside bar area has a roof overhang, so it is somewhat protected from the elements.

It’s one of the best spots in town for people watching. Many of the bar’s patrons are local residents, so this can be a great place to visit if you’re seeking tips on how to make the most of your time in Pigeon Forge. You will also find friendly bartenders and servers who can walk you through the menu items, so you can figure out how much heat you can handle for the buffalo wings.

Iron Boar Saloon is committed to serving high quality food without shortcuts. Their food is made fresh to order, from the loaded burger and taco down to soups, sauces, and dressings. Despite their firm commitment to using fresh ingredients rather than relying on processed or frozen convenience items, Iron Boar Saloon maintains a low price point for their items. It’s a win-win for customers, and this is part of the biker bar’s wide appeal with Pigeon Forge locals and tourists.

Every Friday and Saturday, there’s live music from 7:00 to 11:00 p.m. Arrive early to enjoy a tasty meal and ice cold beer, then stay for the live entertainment.
