SEVEN NEW RESTAURANTS IN SEVIERVILLE, TENNESSEE

These recent additions to Sevierville, Tennessee’s dining scene had our mouths watering even before the doors opened. Each new hotspot adds welcome new flavors to local menus, from Southern classics to secret recipes, healthy eats to sweet treats. Come enjoy a tasty feast in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains, y’all.

BARLEY STATION BBQ

Specializing in smoked farm-to-table food, Chef Adam Palmeno’s menu offers classic and fusion barbecue for lunch and dinner in the main dining room and beer garden. In addition to classic favorites like pork ribs and brisket, you can find creative fusions like wasabi slaw and a tomato-based barbecue sauce with ancho and guava in the recipe. The restaurant doubles as an outdoor live music venue with regular performances year round that generally start at 6 or 7 p.m.; check the Facebook page or call for details. 140 South Kilby St., 865.365.1790, Barley Station BBQ

GRAZE BURGERS

All natural, grass fed beef burgers are the feature at this hip new restaurant in downtown Sevierville. Housed in what was Sevierville’s first U.S. Post Office, Graze Burgers acknowledges the history within its walls with specialty cocktails like Goin Postal (Plymouth Gin, Blueberry-Sage Shrub, and Tonic). Another cocktail, Off the Rails (Bulleit Rye, Cherry Brandy, Star Anise, and Orange), is a nod to the Knoxville, Sevierville & Eastern railway that once ran down Bruce Street – right in front of where the restaurant now stands. Check out live music and patio seating during summer months. 125 Bruce St., 865.206.9822, Graze Burgers

FIVE OAKS FARM KITCHEN

Southern-style breakfast, lunch and supper is served with gracious hospitality on two floors at this spacious restaurant. Start your day with a Belgian waffle topped with warm cherries jubilee and real whipped cream or perhaps Eggs Benedict with sugar cured ham. For lunch consider the fried chicken, meatloaf, or hickory-smoked pork ribs among other temptations. For supper perhaps fried chicken livers, chicken and dumplings, beef short ribs, or pan-fried rainbow trout will satisfy cravings. Desserts like blackberry dumplings and banana pudding prove hard to resist. 1638 Parkway, 865.365.1008, Five Oaks Farm Kitchen

GHOST BAR

The vibe is more friendly than scary at this new lunch, dinner and late-night venue. Wings, burgers, pizzas, sandwiches and other boo(ze)-ready bites are on the food menu. The full bar pours a range of spirited options including 20 specialty cocktails like Spooky Witch’s Brew made of rum and juices, Vampire Bite Shot with vodka, coconut, peach and grenadine, and dessert-y splurges like a frozen mudslide since you only live once. Ghost Bar is open exclusively to adults age 21 and older starting at 9 p.m., so have your IDs ready at the door. 815 Parkway, 865.365.4979, Ghost Bar

MOUNTAIN CHICK CAFE / HOME OF DOC'S DONUTS

This family-owned and -operated little spot serves pillow-y donuts that are made fresh daily alongside fresh-brewed coffee and other pick-me-uppers. Located in Wears Valley, you can savor great views along with a sugary snack. Good luck deciding between donut flavors like peaches and cream, chocolate frosted, blueberry-filled, lemon-filled, strawberries and cream, maple frosted…the list goes on, so you may want to plan on buying a dozen. Come early for the best selection since some flavors sell out before closing time. After a remodel is complete, an expanded menu will offer breakfast sandwiches and tacos, steel cut oatmeal, bagels and more each morning as well as grilled cheese, soup and more at lunch. A new espresso bar will serve coffee drinks throughout the day. 3103 Laurelwood Lane, 865.366.7121, Mountain Chick Café / Home of Doc’s Donuts

Sevier County’s only coffee and keto-friendly dining option uses fresh ingredients in its scratch-made dishes that aim for low-carb eating with a Southern twist at affordable prices. Dishes are gluten free and diabetic-friendly with vegetarian and vegan options. Options range from cauliflower crust breakfast pizza with yogurt sauce to a seven-layer bacon sandwich. Dig into an egg scramble with mixed veggies or bite into a Reuben or Italian sub. Tempting desserts include brownies and key lime pie. There’s no excuse to be hungry. The dog-friendly patio makes it easy to eat without ditching your best friend. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. 1354 Dolly Parton Parkway, 865.286.9909, Ray Ray's Keto & Koffee

THE WILDFLOUR BAKEHOUSE

Smothered cinnamon rolls. Need we say more? These fresh, hot babies are served on a mini sheet pan so you don’t lose a drop of whichever glaze (classic sugar, cream cheese, or caramel maple pecan) you choose. Flaky Danishes, fudgy brownies, old-fashioned cookies, and perfect-crumb cakes are also on the menu, alongside healthy options like avocado toast, yogurt parfaits, and oatmeal if you have stronger willpower than we do. 240 Forks of the River Pkwy., 865.365.1295, The Wildflour Bakehouse
