Most astutely for those individuals who want to pamper their appetite, a sensational meal you will find. Most undeniably a feast for adults only. The wine list would most undoubtedly have satisfied my grandfather, he treasured his wine cellar of 100 plus wines. Enjoy!!

These folks live to serve their patrons. Martin took such good care of our family. As did others who anticipated our every want and need. What a model for other restaurants to emulate. Chef Rebecca Barron, your sweetbreads should be mandatory fare for everyone darkening the door! The starters, the main course items, sides, sauces and chutneys were ridiculous. Everything... More

Whoever owns and runs St Johns clearly loves what they do as seen in great attention to detail and spot on service. If in Chattanooga treat yourself to this gem. From the menu to the venue they real have something special Chattanooga is lucky city.

My wife and I and a friend spent New Year's Evening at The St.John's Restaurant in Chattanooga. St. John's never disappoints. The NY revelers were out in full force. The restaurant was festive, the food fantastic, and the music a great addition. We had a fork tender filet with potatoes and all the other accompaniments. All well prepared by Executive... More

My husband and I went to St.John to celebrate our anniversary and had a perfectly delicious meal and lovely service. The wine list was plenty varied for us and, although we did not partake on this occasion, a variety of beers was also available. This option opened the way for the elegant setting to be pleasantly casual, too, perhaps for... More
