I heard Roosters is good! Isn't that the place that has the doorman they call "Theoculis". Probably wrong spelling, but the
Big ass gladiator in Spartacus?

What is the place in the strip mall with stripper poles in the bar on Seven Oaks off Kingston Pike? There. Good wings. Lots of characters.

If on the West Side of town, Mellow Mushroom at Campbell Station. Mellow Mushroom on the Strip is my favorite though. Go Vols!

Too bad sheep people, brainwashed by decades of commercials don't have a sense of adventure. A place that serves their own brew is great for stepping outside the "how long was it on the shelf?" beer brands. One of the finest places to beer, and that actually knew how to make a proper pilsner beer was the now defunct "Holy Cow!" It was a little, and I mean little street corner place in Las Vegas, NV I wandered into while heading for Mammoth Mountain, CA. Their beers were so good, I made sure to revisit them on my way back to Arizona at the time. Unfortunately, their major focus was on excellent sandwiches, salads, and limited steak fare and BEER! LV is a casino town so they died after a few years. Found out when I went there for a convention and hoping to sample the rest of their great beers.

Sheep people, usually places selling their own brews are sensitive to how their brews are perceived. So they take extra effort to make them worth your coming back again. Walk a bit on the wild side, you could be in for one heck of a surprise.

Now, OP, I can't suggest a game bar for you as I don't live in the Knoxville area and don't it that well. Hardly at all, really. But if were you and the place has good game watching, I'd go with SmileyVol"s suggestion.

Of all the criteria the OP laid out, I think Double Dogs off the Hardin Valley exit might be his best bet. Tons of TV's, not just strictly a college crowd like many of the places down on the Strip, good food, close to his folks house in West Knox, and IIRC it's smoke free.
