Lunch at market restaurant

While family had lunch. Everything was wonderful. I had the spinach salad and it was delicious. My husband and I both had the shrimp and grits and it was the best we've ever had. My husband doesn't normally like shrimp and grits but loved these. My daughter had crab cakes and gobbled them down... read more

So delicious and many gluten free options. The decor could use some updating because you feel a little bit like you are in a Lubys cafeteria. But the food is great!!

The cocktails we ordered were delicious, especially the Euro. It features Pimms, which I'd never had before but had always wanted to try. Our waiter, Paul, was kind enough to bring out a small sample of it for me to try. Needless to say, the Euro was delish! I ordered the spinach salad which was less flavorful than I'd hoped~... More

After visiting the aquarium and checking out the snack bar there, decided I would prefer someplace nice and relaxing. This is just a block away but just the break we needed. Food was good and service was excellent!

Dined here and had a great experience. Food was terrific. I had the 4 oz filet which while a little past medium (I had requested medium) still was very good, mashed potatoes and sautéed kale. Didn't care for the kale but that's a personal preference. Hubby had the trout which he really liked. Came with grits which he liked but... More

212 Market did not disappoint this foodie! A fabulous restaurant with experienced wait staff. They were more than happy to accommodate my dietary restriction by exchanging the grits (made with heavy cream) for the sweet potato hash. Much appreciated! I thoroughly enjoyed the vegetable plate special with the hash! We chose a Carneros Saintsbury Pinot Noir. I believe they had... More

212 Market has a very unassuming exterior and interior, but the food and wine selection is top notch. We dined here on a Wednesday evening at a later hour and were seated immediately. There were a nice selection of specials for the the evening to go along with the standard menu. I ordered the seafood bisque as an appetizer and... More

I met up with an old friend in Chattanooga for shopping and lunch. I chose 212 Market based on good reviews on Yelp, and we were not disappointed. The weather was awesomely hot, and we were sweating just from a short walk from public parking on 4th and Cherry Sts - just to find out there is parking for the... More

I will start with the positives of my experience; the service was excellent and very friendly. The menu was extensive enough to satisfy every appitite, and our beef was cooked how we ordered it. However, the bad was the pricing, which did not fit the product we recieved. I had a New York strip for $26 that had so much... More
