Welcome to Ole Red!
Misbehave a little, Gatlinburg style.
Whether Ole Red is at the top of your country music bucket list or you just wandered in itchin’ for a little fun in the heart of Gatlinburg, we’re glad you made it.
Country fans already know this place gets its name from superstar Blake Shelton’s breakout hit, “Ol’ Red.” Being here is a lot like hanging out with the guy himself: laid-back and genuine, up for anything, a bit irreverent (but always fun)—and set to great music. Ole Red has a little something for everyone in the heart of the Smokies!
We cordially invite you to settle in with a Blake-approved cocktail, order a plate of Redneck Nachos, or try the Clingman's Dome Burger. And you feel like sharing, snap a selfie with our famous Champagne of Fried Chicken, brined in Miller High Life, fried to perfection, and served in a champagne bucket. You can’t go wrong here; every one of our made-from-scratch menu items and special desserts is a crowd pleaser.
Blake knows a thing or two about spotting country’s next rising stars, and we’re putting them on our state-of-the-art stage seven days a week. You’re at the only live music spot in Gatlinburg with talent hand-picked by our Nashville team, showcasing the very best coming out of Music City and across the Southeast. From hot up-and-comers to surprise celebrity guests, you never know who will take the stage!
So take a stroll around, talk to a stranger, and indulge in some prime people-watching from our outdoor terrace. And don’t leave without checking out the Ole Red shop — you’re gonna need a cool tee shirt for yourself, and your favorite Blake fan back home will be mad as hell if you show up empty handed.
We appreciate you coming by. You have the fun. We’ll do the dishes.
