Our Story

Welcome to The Abbey!

The Abbey is a great way to spend a sunny afternoon, eating lunch by the river and drinking your favorite brew, whether it be Craft Beer, Cider, Sweet Iced Tea or a Soft Drink.  Our family friendly atmosphere brings a smile to all ages.  Join a friend in corn hole or Connect Four.  Escape the hustle and bustle of Pigeon Forge (25 minutes away) or Gatlinburg (25 minutes also).  Visit Cades Cove or ride your bike along our 6 mile Townsend Bike Path and rest with us!

We also have shareables for you to snack on and a sandwich, salad or flatbread should you have a larger appetite.  Specials each weekend for music night are to promote speedy service so you can better enjoy your time with us!

“A Great Find”

“What a fabulous addition to Townsend! Great craft beer, nice patio overlooking the river and tubers and corn hole. Great place to relax and have a bite to eat and a beer after a hike. The best thing is they are open all year! Looking forward to the addition of live music! I’ve told all of my hiking friends about you all!
