Live Entertainment Nightly in the Lounge
The former Bear Creek Grill has been expanded by new owners and now has 2 separate dining areas, 2 bar areas and a large covered porch with TV’s for watching sporting events. Crystelle Creek Restaurant and Grill is located on Hwy. 321 and offers ample free parking. Though they don’t take reservations, you can call ahead for seating before you leave your cabin so you won’t have any wait when you arrive.
The restaurant features daily specials and offers their own Crystelle Creek beer on tap for $2 a pint. On the menu you’ll find appetizers such as Queso dip, fried mushrooms and a classic Shrimp cocktail. Entrees include Chicken Parm, Lasagna, Stuffed Chicken, Ribeye Salad, Catfish, Trout and Salmon, and from the oak-fired grill, Beef Tenderloin, T-Bone, and Baby Back Ribs.

If you happen to visit on a Thursday, you can enjoy appetizer specials with your Half Off Wine (by the Bottle) purchase.
Live entertainment begins between 5-6 p.m. nearly every night and features local artists, singers and songwriters on Mondays and Tuesdays. Every Tuesday in March, Tim Keller will sing and play music, and you’ll hear “Neesee on the Keyboard” Wednesdays through Sundays. Neesee will play and sing oldies to current hits and even take your requests. The music is soft and uplifting and will certainly entertain while you enjoy your meal.

“Food was enjoyed by all eight members of our party-lots of compliments. Our server went above and beyond to see we didn’t have to wait for anything. Neesee, the entertainer that night, sings like a angel and it is worth going to there just to hear her sing. The restaurant is huge but designed to be easy accessible for everyone; even the handicap. My one disappoint was that we did not see a bear.”
“We’ll Be Back for More!” – “Stayed in Gatlinburg over New Year’s and decided to get out of traffic and try a new restaurant. We usually do The Peddler, but wanted to see what other Trip Advisor folks were talking about with Crystelle Creek. It’s a great setting, close to town but you feel like you’re “more in the mountains”. Can’t wait to come back when the weather is warmer and we can be outside on the porch and the grounds. The food and drinks were very good and our server Jeana was so friendly and never left us waiting for anything. We were there too early to catch any live music but hear it’s fun and lot’s of variety all the time. Will definitely be back for future food and fun!”
