“Great Lunch Spot!”
Reviewed 18 May 2014 via mobile

We recently spent a weekend in Monteagle. On our way out of town, we were looking for a casual - but yummy - lunch spot and this place hit the mark! I got a steak Caesar wrap and my husband got the crispy chicken wrap and both were delicious. They also had a great Sunday brunch menu, but we were in the mood for lunch. We sat in the tap room which had a casual, but festive vibe. We recommend this one!

“Go for a drink. Not the food”
Reviewed 31 March 2014 via mobile

Ordered the artichoke spinach dip appetizer; but the chips were stale and the dip tasted like velveeta. The flank steak with mashed potatoes was good and very big portions. The gravy was very rich. But was $18 with no bread or salad was overpriced. My husband did not care for the ribs. This restaurant has an identity crisis. Not sure if it's a BBQ place or a fancy restaurant. Does neither very well.

“Saved the day!”
Reviewed 16 March 2014

Got caught in traffic in Nashville AGAIN. Evening shot. So were looking for something other than fast food close I-24 and up popped Monteagle with several options with good reviews so were de-sided to look. Dave's was the first place we came too. What a day saver. I got the special Mahi with pesto lobster sauce and my husband got the Salmon. Perfect! good value, interesting interior. Looks like we might plan a day trip that includes Dave's when they have live music.
Our waiter Aaron sure makes a mean Margarita.

“Great food and fun”
Reviewed 6 March 2014

Love this place! I've never been disappointed with the food. Great beer selection to boot! I try something new everytime I go. Entertainment in the Tap Room some nights is also a plus. My only wish would be that they were open later on the weekends.
