Barbeque is a mainstay in the Smoky Mountain region, and Clint Carnley is considered a local master. In addition to fabulous slow-cooked pit barbeque specialties (which include beef, pork, chicken and ribs), this informal eatery and its down-home-friendly wait staff serve plenty of other fare, such as sandwiches, shrimp and 32-ounce cowboy-cut steaks. The homemade desserts are simply delectable. The walls are covered with old-fashioned signs, historic photos, and old-fashioned memorabilia that will keep the kids occupied until the food arrives. On Tuesday nights, Clint (who used to be a professional musician before he took up chef duties) even plays guitar and sings for patrons. The restaurant is less than six miles from the center of downtown Sevierville, on US Highway 411 (which starts out in town as Dolly Parton Parkway before its name changes to Newport Highway).
