KTs Bar & Grill on The Parkway in Sevierville, TN

KT's Bar & Grill on The Parkway in Sevierville, TN

You wouldn’t believe how hard it is to find a local place in a tourist town. J and I went on a quest to find something that wasn’t going to be cheesey or touristy, but we didn’t have an Internet connection in our cabin, so it was real hard to research. I can’t tell you the last time we went without Internet for 48 hours, but we made do.

The plan was to head back in to Sevierville because we noticed a county courthouse on the way in. There’s got to be a pub or something near the courthouse, right? I mean, where do employees go for dinner and a beer?

Well, it’s not in downtown Sevierville, that’s for sure. There was nothing. One place but it looked fancy and didn’t have a menu outside so we passed. Instead, J got her GPS out of her purse to see what sounded local.

When she turned it on, our location was back in Sevierrville near our cabin. She found a place with the word “grill” in it, so that’s where we went.

When we got there, we found a different restaurant, but it was still a bar and grill, so we went in.

KT’s Bar & Grill is just off The Parkway in Sevierville in the area of the Tanger Outlets. It looks kind of like a cross between a chain and a local establishment. It’s got the size and exterior of a chain, but inside, it has more of the feel of a one shot deal.

We pulled in a little after 7:30 on Tuesday night. There were a few cars in the parking lot, but business was slow inside. A hostess took us to a booth near the bar and handed us the one page menu. That one page was rather large, but it still had all the usual suspects.

J wanted to start with the Loaded Nachos so we did. After getting our drinks (a Coke and a Wild berry Daiquiri), the nachos came out really fast. The tortilla chips are fried in house and they are covered with chili, jalapeños, sour cream, tomatoes, lettuce, and scallions. There was a lot of topping. A lot. The chips got a little soggy on the bottom, but we did our best. The plate could have been an entrée for both of us. We ended up with a pile of the topping on the plate. The waitress asked if we wanted more chip. We declined because we were both getting full and we still had food coming out.

I wasn’t in the mood for a burger since I had one for lunch, so I actually had to look at the menu. They had pizza. They had a pulled pork. They had quite a few sandwiches that I could have gotten, but I went with the chicken strips since I knew J wasn’t going to. There were five pieces of chicken that were hand dipped and fried then served with BBQ sauce, honey mustard, and skin on french fries. They were delicious. The breading had a great flavor and I got my BBQ sauce for this meal (four in a row now…:) ). The fries were great as well. Cooked crispy and lightly salted. By the time I got done, I couldn’t have eaten another thing.

J ordered the spinach and strawberry salad. She said it was time for some roughage since we’ve been eating so heavy and it is her favorite salad combination. This was a huge plate of salad. It came topped with halved strawberries, walnuts, and bleu cheese with their house dressing. She loved the salad but there was just so much. She’s lucky if she ate half of it. We couldn’t take it home because we’re in a cabin and we’ll be leaving in the morning, so it wasn’t going to be eaten anyway.

Our bill was just over $41. Much more than we usually spend when we dine out, but we got a $10 appetizer and J got a frozen drink, so that added another $16 to bill. The food was good. The portion size was humongous, and it was just the atmosphere we were looking for.
