While walking through Gatlinburg to another highly rated restaurant we noticed a small sign stating that Howard's Steakhouse had outdoor dining. Being from a northern state my wife and I decided to seize an outdoor dining patio seat and enjoy the Tennessee weather. The patio was tucked behind the restaurant and next to a creek. The lighting was perfect to... More

I was there with a friend and it was late looking for somewhere to eat that wasn't a chain restaurant and happened upon this place. We thought we would give it a try when we walked in the restaurant was basically empty and the hostess asked if we wanted to sit outside and of course we did and had the... More

We like the Wild Boar as it looks like a old time bar. Great drinks and good prices. You can also eat at the bar which is nice. Outside seating with a view of the creek is nice. Great bartenders. Always a good time.

We stopped for lunch during our day checking out Gatlinburg and wanted a place less "touristy" than some of the others. This place did not disappoint. We sat at a high top in the bar area and the bartender was our server. The Bloody Mary was delicious and the burger and fries were great. The quesadilla had lettuce in it,... More

I would have to write a book on everything that went wrong at this restaurant...so I will just tell you the good parts. The outdoor seating is nice and the manager is very nice. The manager did what she could to make sure we enjoyed our meal but needless to say after waiting 20 minutes for a glass of water..I... More

Stopped in after walking/shopping Gatlinburg. We were given a table with a view of the creek. Our server was very nice, and had a great personality. The food was delicious and large servings.
