grand lake o’ the cherokees

Welcome to the Island

The Blind Swine Lounge specializes in hand crafted cocktails made from carefully selected liquors, seasonally fresh produce and herbs. Our drink menu is a labor of love and updates frequently throughout the year.  Rumor has it, the locals love our infused crafted drink specials. Patrons pop in often just to see what is coming up next.

In the Restuarant, you’ll find all hand battered specialties and house made dishes featuring signature sauces, all made fresh and many based on family recipes. There are several unique dining areas options including an outside deck, two bars, covered patio, two dining rooms, and a billiard room that includes vintage pinball. Everyone is sure to find their favorite spot!

Music is the pulse of the entire venue. During dinner hours, you’ll usually hear an array of songs from the traditional blues genre. Later in the night, expect to be entertained by eclectic live music performers, DJs playing to the crowd & bartender-of-the-night personal favorites. Karaoke is a favorite pastime at the Swine where patrons can gain their fame on the Blind Swine stage!

Blind Swine is constantly evolving and many plans are still yet to be realized. We are passionate about service, ambiance and quality and constantly strive to bring new and special experiences to Grand Lake O’ the Cherokees.

Take a trip to Monkey Island and see for yourself what the Swine has to offer!

Really cool, eclectic bar with great cocktails, good food, and a cool atmosphere. Highly recommend the “whisky pig” cocktail. Outdoor seating, funky decor, and relaxed vibe. Great for pre-dinner drinks, late night cocktails, or a relaxed dinner. We will be back.. ”
