We enjoyed the food and atmosphere .The shrimp and grits was very good. It is conveniently located near the Chattanooga Aquarium.

Sunday plans fell through, and we were left with no plan for our last hours in the city. Our hotel had indicated that there was a holiday market as the Convention Center...and there was not. Then we had expected to go to a brunch that also featured local bands, and the reviews we read said that lines were long and... More

Came here for our last lunch before heading back to UK and it was remarkably underwhelming. Atmosphere really weird too. Downstairs felt like the dining room in a nursing home - dull decor, drab ambience and older crowd. We ate on the balcony which could have been nice but felt slightly abandoned. Food was really disappointing too, meatloaf ok but... More

Everyone loves this restaurant and my first try 7 years ago was so so. We gave it a go again yesterday and it was even worse and I have no idea why they keep getting great reviews. I ordered the salmon off the sunday brunch menu and my husband ordered the shrimp and grits off the regular menu. First off... More

Nicely appointed interior with comfortable tables, not overdone. Our server was efficient and brought rolls and courses in a timely manner. My wife and I enjoyed fresh trout and pork for entrees. Highly recommend fried green tomatoes as an appetizer.

Went to Chattanooga TN for the weekend with our convertible stayed in a wonderful little B&B, & ate @ several different restaurants down on Market street, & this one was one of them. Great farm to table food & absolutely delicious! I had the salmon & my hubby had the pork chop, both were delicious! For dessert we had the... More

Server was efficient and friendly. Food was excellent. I usually don't eat kale, but it was the veggie of the day and was sautéed with garlic like spinach. It was quite tasty. Nice atmosphere. Complimentary valet parking!

Nice atmosphere and service was inviting. Trout was awesome. Attentive staff was highlight with at least 3 different folks asking how things were and if we needed anything. Nice portions and well paced.

Although the portions were on the smaller size the food was VERY good. Someone with us had the lentil soup and she felt it was the best she had tasted. We shared the famous fried green tomatoes and these went over with "flying colors" also. For dinner I had the trout which was very good. They were able to accommodate... More

Just happened to stop by on the spur of the moment, although I had previously read reviews on TripAdvisor. So glad that we did. This is a farm to table restaurant. The wine selection is amazing and the food was exceptional. We sat in the outdoor balcony during early afternoon. The restaurant is beautiful and the staff was wonderful. Several... More
