4.      LongHorn Steakhouse – Although this is a chain restaurant we felt it was worthy of the #4 spot. At LongHorn, they have a passion for grilling inspired by the American West. This passion is reflected in their legendary steaks and extends beyond steaks to chicken and fish,  that are fresh, never frozen.  The LogHorn’s in Sevierville offers fantastic atmosphere, wonderful service and outstanding food. If you haven’t had the pleasure of eating at a LongHorn’s Steakhouse, stop in next time you are in Sevierville.
