EMERGENCY QUESTION: decent sports bar in Knoxville?

Headed up there this weekend. I need a place to watch the NFC championship game that isn't my dad's living room. Preferably with good draft beer. My folks live in the Cedar Bluff area, but I am my wife is willing to drive a ways if someplace is worth it. Any suggestions?

Causal Pint has great beer selection and they have tv's that I am sure will be on the game. Very relaxed atmosphere. There one in Market Square and another one off one Kingston Pike but I can't remember the name of the road it's on off of Kingston Pike.

If you want to go to a college bar, don't mind some of the worst service in Knoxville, and don't mind to walk a little ways to get there (Half Barrel doesn't have a parking lot), then I can't possibly think of a better suggestion than Half Barrel. Considering that you said you're in your 40's I would suggest you look elsewhere.

Okay. First, I'm not in my 40s. OP is. Second, I've always had great service there, especially on game days. It's winter, and there are plenty of places to park within .2 miles for free. Quit being a little girl about it. He's not asking to go to a martini bar with valet parking.

Bailey's is good, too much cigarette smoke though. I go to Smoky Mountain Brewery in Turkey Creek often, although some ppl don't like the fact that they only serve their own brew. But its good beer!
