The Roaming Gnome Pub and Eatery – Sevierville, TN


The Roaming Gnome Pub and Eatery is located at 202 Collier Drive in Sevierville, Tennessee in the Governor’s Crossing strip Mall across the street from Wal-Mart.


Known to the locals as “The Gnome”, The Roaming Gnome Pub and Eatery is a laid back informal Irish pub that offers a relaxed atmosphere with lots of games to play including pool, darts,
large screen TV for sports enthusiasts, live music, free wi-fi, and outdoor seating. The pub is a “good little ‘locals’ bar in the middle of a tourist wasteland.”

In keeping with the restaurant’s titular theme, gnomes are inconspicuously scattered about the building. Some are hanging from the ceiling, some lurk on the shelves behind the bar, some sit in the window displays and still others are found painted on tabletops.

For those looking for cold drinks, the bar at the Roaming Gnome has over 75 frosty beers, among other spirits, as well as an assortments of non-alcoholic beverages, like tea and sodas.


The food at the “Gnome” is standard American Bistro fare, including cheeseburgers and Philly cheese steak subs. According to the proprietors, “We offer a full menu from open till 2 a.m. everyday, including the “greatest” mouth watering cheeseburger in the country. We’re known for having the largest food portions but not the largest price.”

The menu features a classic Gnome burger described as “Our original tasty hamburger with all the trimmings. Add cheese for a small price – your choices are America, Swiss, Jack/Cheddar blend, Mozzerella, Nacho Cheese, Blue Cheese Crumbles or Beer Cheese.

Along with tasty Gnometizers, you can also order the SuperGnoma Pizza with the works, pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms, onion, olives, green peppers, or the Gnomad served fried (grilled upon request), a monster sandwich topped with grilled ham, cheese and bacon. And for salad lovers, there is the Gnomatic Salad topped with tasty rows: turkey, ham, beacon, onion, cheese, tomato, olives, and green peppers.

To remember your visit to the pub, souvenir tee-shirts are available for purchase.

Note: The Sevierville location opened in 2007. It’s owner Travis Webb, originally from Little Rock, Arkansas, expanded his operations in 2008 to a new branch at 716 20th Street Knoxville, TN (tagged as the “Campus Edition”). The Knoxville branch was located in the building that housed the original Ruby Tuesday’s, 21st Street Grill and Charlie Pepper’s. A second expansion happened in 2010. The third pub was located at 1720 West Broadway Avenue in Maryville in Blount County.

The Knoxville and Maryville locations have since closed, but luckily the Sevierville location remains as a place to go for a good night out of food and drink.

And in case you were wondering, The Roaming Gnome Pub and Eatery is NOT affiliated with the Travelocity Roaming Gnome.
