I came here and heard this was a great spot and it was! I had an excellent restaurant. Food was great and so was the service. It is worth the trip to find it. It is north of there river and downtown. Best sandwiches for lunch! I cannot wait to come back!

Food Works offers an Early Bird menu from 4-6 Mon-Fri. You get an appetizer, meal & dessert, they are full portions. $20 I ordered the sweet potato chips & dip, it did not have a lot of wow to it. I would not order this again. Hubby ordered the fried green tomatoes, they had a lot of flavor, but got... More

I would say this place had good, but not great food. I had the hamburger. It could have had s little more flavor. The hand cut fries were really good.

We had a very bad experience at this restaurant. First, I made my reservation over 2 months prior, yet we were seated upstairs with the stairs right in front of us. Clearly not a prime location. We ordered artichoke dip, and it was drowning in grease. I was completely disgusted, but my husband managed to eat some of it. It... More

The beef brisket is to die for!!! It is fork tender and delicious. The service is outstanding too. This is one of my favorite places to eat.

This is one of my personal favorites for fine dining in Chattanooga. It is romantic, artsy, professional and formal without being pretentious or too stuffy. Its a 'nice place' as my mom would say, she wouldn't want me to wear something too casual for dinner there. It has lovely views from the upstairs tables by large windows (my favorite place... More

We have a regular girls night out. Usually we go somewhere different every time. After coming to Food Works we now have a regular spot. The food is excellent, the service wonderful, great ambiance for the occasion. I highly recommend it.
