Will be passing through for one night...

We will be passing through Knoxville and actually staying for one night @ The Four Points by Sheraton ...

We have a one year old, and was wondering where would be a decent place to go out for dinner. We like bar and grill type places, microbreweries, etc...

Thanks...

Before you reach Knoxville get off I 40 at Exit 373 on the S side and hit the first street left on Parkside and go about a mile to Smokey Mountrain Brewery for pizza, burgers and steaks. Get back on I 75 and head N on I 75/I 40 past Knoxville.

Smokey Mountain Brewery @ 11308 Parkside Dr., Knoxville, TN 865 - 288 - 5500.

The folks that own Smokey Mountain own Copper Cellar just N of SM at Exit 380 S of I 40 on Parkside also convenient to plenty of shopping and just a minute off I 40. Both places are similar.

We also enjoy bar and grill type restaurants and microbreweries. If you are looking for places to eat the night you are in Knoxville at the Four Points, try one of these. They are our favorites.

Calhoun's on the River

coppercellar.com/…locations

Calhoun's is owned by the Copper Cellar group that Axle mentioned. There is also a Copper Cellar on the "strip" in Knoxville, not too far from Four Points.

Our other favorite is Downtown Grill and Brewery in downtown Knoxville.

http://www.downtownbrewery.com/

Our daughter is a senior at UT and we have grown to love Knoxville. Enjoy!

Thanks, Axle, for the suggestions for places between Knoxville and Asheville. We are headed to Knoxville next week and are going to Asheville for our first time when we leave Knoxville.

Terp Fan.........Here's a few places to stop and rest on your way to Knoxville on I 81. The Naked Oyster is a great place for lunch/dinner at Winchester at Exit 313. Try the buffet at Butcher Block BBQ @ Exit 307 in Stephens City. Just down I 81 a few miles at New Market is Southern Kitchen serving outstanding country food for breakfast, lunch and dinner at Exit 264. Harrisonburg has quite a few fine road food places convenient to I 81. I suggest you consider Jess' Quick Lunch or Little Grill at Exit 247. The Village Inn is very nice also at Exit 240. Staunton is just W of I 81 and a very nice town also. It's home to Mrs. Rowe's country food breakfast, lunch and dinner and Wright's Dairy Rite. Lexington, VA has a number of good restaurants like Bistro on Main for lunch/dinner, Macado's for sandwiches and Sheridan Livery Inn and Restaurant for lunch/dinner. Lexington is the home of VMI and W&L U. It's a beautiful town a few minutes W of I 81 and worth a visit. Home Place is a great restaurant several miles W of I 81 W of Roanoke at Exit 141 serving outstanding country food, good fried chicken and deserts in an old home. Just E of Lexington at Exit 188AB Frank's for the Memorie's is a great place for good road food with great outdoor dining. Roanoke has quite a few nice restaurants but they are mostly in town.

Get off I 81 at Exit 150B and go E to Highway 11. Turn left and go N a couple of miles to Pomegrante Restaurant for outstanding seafood and steaks for dinner.

Pomegranate Restaurant @ 106 Stoney Battery Road, Troutville, VA 540 - 966 - 6052.

Just a little N of Roanoke at Exit 150A/150/B is 3 Little Pigs. In Christiansburg just down the road a piece is Dude's, Due South, Farm House and Summit. All are very good places to eat. On S on I 81 in Wytheville, VA stop at Smokey's BBQ at Exit 70 or 73. Peking Chinese Restaurant is outstanding also. C J's Pizza is good if you have kids. At Abingdon, VA there's some fine places. Have lunch at the House on Main and dine on the porch, lunch or dinner at Peppermill or BBQ at Parks BBQ at Exit 17. Chick N Little is good country food and Ellis Soda Shop and Grill has good salads, soups, sandwiches, burgers and more with outdoor seating as well. Wildflower Bakery and Cafe is great for breakfast,lunch or dinner and it's close to I 81 at Exit 19. If you have time to detour to Johnson City or Bluff City then Cootie Brown's and Ridgewood BBQ are good road stops.
