On U.S. 441 South through Gatlinburg, we are 200 yards on the left before entering Great Smoky Mountains National Park. We are between lights 9 & 10, next to the Clarion Inn and across from the Days Inn. We are the beautiful large log building that is reminiscent of the grand lodges of America’s national parks. You may also take the by-pass around Gatlinburg when traffic is heavy. Just before entering Gatlinburg, exit the Spur (the road between Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg – U.S. 441) at the sign on the right: “National Park via Gatlinburg By-Pass” and drive 4 miles over a scenic overlook. This will bring you out above Gatlinburg in the National Park. Just follow the signs to Gatlinburg – less than a mile. We are the second building on the right as you enter town, just past light 10. Back road directions to the Park Grill Steakhouse from Interstate 40, Exit 407: Exit I-40 at Exit 407 and follow Hwy. 66 into Sevierville. Turn left in Sevierville onto Hwy. 411, the Dolly Parton Parkway. Drive east on Dolly Parton Parkway past Sevier County High School on your left. Turn right on Pittman Center Road (Hwy. 416)–right lane must turn right 1 mile past the high school. On Pittman Center Road, keep going straight, even when the signs say that 416 turns to the left. Continue on what has now become Birds Creek Road and later becomes Buckhorn Road as it winds through the scenic countryside. It will dead end at Hwy. 321. Turn right toward the west and follow Hwy. 321 into downtown Gatlinburg. Bear left on the Parkway (U.S. 441) at light 3 in downtown Gatlinburg and follow the Parkway to the Park Grill. Presto! You’ve now missed miles of possible traffic tie-ups along the main highway through Sevierville and Pigeon Forge and enjoyed the countryside.
The perfect end to a day in the Smokies . . . or a wonderful meal anytime can be had at the Park Grill in Gatlinburg. Massive wooden log beams form a rustic cathedral, nestled against the gorgeous greenery of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Diners at the steakhouse can take in a spectacular three-part mural of Gatlinburg with their eyes, painted by Knoxville artist Ann Lorimer. Among the specialties: Charcoal-grilled, fresh Abram's Creek Rainbow Trout, Chimney Top Stuffed Mushrooms, hickory-grilled steaks, ribs & prime rib, Jack Daniel's Creme Brulee and White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cheesecake. Tuesday through Saturday, 6 pm-9 pm, at the Grill, wonderful dinner music on the piano accompanies your scrumptious meal. Open 7 Days a Week: 4:30 pm on Saturdays; 5:00 pm Sunday-Friday.
