For our second Local Guide entry, we are spotlighting a fairly new addition to the area, GrapeXpectations. This casual wine bar is locally owned and features wines by the glass or bottle, meat and cheese trays (charcuterie), toasty bites, and decadent desserts. If you are looking for something a little different, this is the place to be! We highly recommend the toasty bites--the variety of flavors is exceptional!! They've also recently added mini pizzas to the menu which are little slices of tastiness. If you are following a gluten free diet (or Paleo / Keto), they have some wonderful options for you. And, they host weekly trivia as well as monthly paint nights!


From GrapeXpectations: Join us for casual dining in a relaxing atmosphere in our little wine bar at Exit 407 near Knoxville, Sevierville, and Kodak. We offer the finest wines, cheeses, and cured meats along with other small plates to tempt any palate. If you are looking for a great girls night out, date night, a quick bite, or a delicious glass of wine after a long day, stop in and let us make your day GRAPE!  



This is starting off our Local Guide series of posts where we highlight another local business that you might enjoy visiting while you are in town. To kick us off, we are starting with the Bullfish Grill in Pigeon Forge. This amazing restaurant boasts high end food at mid-range prices. If you like fried green tomatoes, this location has one of the tastiest options we've ever tried. The tomates are fried to a perfect crispness and topped with feta cheese and Pico de gallo on mixed greens with aged balsamic reduction. Their steaks are top notch, and their seafood is fresh. Treat yourself to a great dinner out or stop in for lunch while you take a break from shopping! 

From Bullfish: 

"At Bullfish Grill, we specialize in our namesake. Bullfish proudly serves aged Grand Champion Angus Beef. Seafood is delivered daily, offering you the freshest selections available. We carry only the finest wines, lagers and ales to compliment our fresh seafood and hand-cut steaks. No bull, just great food. Voted Pigeon Forge’s Best Restaurant!"
