Why Choose Three Jimmys For Dinner In Gatlinburg?

The city of Gatlinburg has no shortage of restaurants to serve just about every taste under the sun, but one of our favorite places that we like to post on our network of websites about every so often is the Three Jimmys on Highway 321 in Gatlinburg. We have gotten to enjoy Three Jimmys so much that we have been going there at least once a month for dinner, drinks and meetings with other clients. We have some of our favorites that we go for (beer-battered shrooms, chicken pot pie, maple bourbon chicken and Guinness-braised reuben, specifically) and for dinner or drinks, we often choose a time when a performer will be playing that night.

We know why we choose Three Jimmys, why should you?

1. The food, obviously. We were customers and patrons of Three Jimmys before we started promoting them on our websites. About 5 meals before and many more followed. We are confident we will have a great night out each time we choose Three Jimmys, and judging by their reviews on Google, we are not the only customers who say so!

Three Jimmys has a long and varied menu, made up of local recipes and specialties the owners had perfected, broken up into Comfort Food, Sandwiches, Burgers (yes, they actually separate out sandwiches from burgers!) Barbecue & Grill, Soup & Salad, World Artisan Pizza, fresh housemade sides and, of course, appetizers under the Starters header. They are especially proud of their smoked meats; some of which we’ve had some and can see why. These meals include chicken wings, “Rockin’ Ribs” with a special sauce only available at Three Jimmys, brisket, sirloin, roast beef, ham, catfish, turkey, themed pizzas, a multitude of cheeses and vegetables, and much more than we’d have room to post here.

See their menu at

2. Despite the area being full of restaurants and full of music artists, Gatlinburg surprisingly does not have many restaurants that offer regular music performances throughout the week, or month, or at all. Three Jimmys has music performances and their restaurant is the stage for locally famous performers like Kirk Fleta and Neese Hurst as well as Karoake Nights on Thursday.

See their entertainment schedule at

3. An excellent location that both locals and visitors to the Smokies greatly appreciate (it shows up in Google reviews quite a bit). Gatlinburg is known for its traffic downtown, and it’s known for its very long stretch of road into the far more rural and mountainous area of the Tennessee Smokies on Highway 321 towards Cosby. Three Jimmys is located right at the “sweet spot” where the Gatlinburg traffic dies down but not so far away that it isn’t easy to get to.

That same location is also the start of the Glades/Gatlinburg Arts and Crafts Community, so it has proximity to a gorgeous portion of Tennessee Smokies that feels prestigious, calming and historic all at once. A handful of times, we have had a day out at the Arts and Crafts Community and then enjoyed an awesome pizza or roast beef plate at Three Jimmys.

Oh, and they have outside dining that is dog-friendly!

In addition to that – in the same building complex, Three Jimmys also own and operate Green Eye Hemp Cafe. Green Eye Hemp came of their interest in hemp and CBD products after their legalization in Tennessee, and they have since turned it into a chill, artistic establishment where they sell coffee blends made to order, daily soups, paninis, organic teas, Kratom teas, Deltas 8 and 9 edibles and, yes, more. Variety and value is the name of the game at Green Eye Hemp and our network owners have become personal fans and repeat customers of Green Eye Hemp themselves.

“To become wise, meditate on the third eye, between the eyebrows and a bit above. Focus on that spot, the Agni chakra.” ~ Frederick Lenz

Green Eye Hemp Café is a locally-owned shop & hemp grow facility located in Gatlinburg, Tennessee near The Great Smoky Mountains National Park. It is our mission to continually strive to provide an educational environment that inspires our customers to take a moment to decompress and enjoy life’s quiet moments. We believe that if you want something done right, you’ve got to do it yourself, so we rolled up our sleeves and got to work perfecting each of our house made hemp oils, topicals, and edibles. You’ll find a whole array of offerings here that aren’t available anywhere else!

Green Eye is a hemp shop first, and a coffee shop second, but don’t let that fool you! We’re more than proud to serve the finest latte or cup of tea you’ll ever have the pleasure of tasting. All of our coffees are organic, fair trade, and locally roasted so we are able to offer you the absolute peak in freshness. Variety and value is the name of the game here.
