Boyd's Jig & Reel is an authentic Scottish music and Whisky pub, located in the Old City of Knoxville, TN. We are open six days a week serving delicious meals with a focus on friendly Scottish hospitality. Our extensive Scotch selection is one of the best in the world with over 600 whiskies. Our mission is to celebrate and preserve our regions’ musical heritage in the only way it can be done: playing the tunes and passing them on from musician to musician.
Oh man, do I love this place. The food is always good and the atmosphere is fantastic. I had the shepherd's pie and my friend had the bangers & mash, both of which left us stuffed and satisfied. The beer was pretty darn great too. We had the pretzels and beer cheese but I forgot to take a picture before we ate it all. It came out fresh and hot and delicious. 13/12, I'd recommend. 😉🤤
This was our first time to the Jig and Reel, but it definitely won't be our last. There was nothing we didn't like about it. We went the day after St. Paddy's Day, and my husband had and was very excited about the Moon Pie Stout. We shared a Scotch Egg and the Corned Beef Plate and it was the best food we've had in a long time! The Corned Beef was tender and so flavorful and came with fresh cooked Cabbage and potatoes. The Egg was served with a hot Mustard sauce. Yummy!! They had a couple of different live music groups playing traditional Irish music. It was a fantastic visit.
Decided to go celebrate St. Patrick's Day and this was the only place I found serving Corned Beef and Cabbage. (always on the menu) The service was great, the food was spot-on, the portions were just right, and the price was very reasonable. I finished the meal with an Irish Coffee and it was one of the best I've ever had. Great ambiance also. I will definitely be going again, way before next St. Patrick's Day.
Great bar in the old part of the city. The live music is awesome. Great atmosphere with friendly staff. The Guinness and IPA on tap were excellent together with the fish bite appetizer. Well worth a visit if you are in the area.
We drove over an hour just to have dinner here. Our experience started out great. The atmosphere is neat and our server was great. Our pretzels and beer cheese was really good but when it came to my dinner I was pretty disappointed. I ordered the shepherds pie and honestly it was terrible. It looks fantastic in the pictures but it was the most bland shepherds pie I have ever had. I had my husband try it and even he said that it needed seasoning. They did take it off our bill but it was just disappointing.
