The seafood is delicious! Cool atmosphere and a fun place to meet friends for Dinner. Great Sunday Brunch with a big selection of food and a juice bar.

We had hped for so much more, The buffet items were varied, but empty as to what had resided there at one time. Service was practically non-existence. Highlight of the entire experience was the carver at the meat station. He was the only one who came to our table, chatted, and said he hoped we would come back.

The Battery is an all around great restaurant. Great atmosphere, good selection of food and drinks and typically good service, but what I like the most about The Battery is the brunch buffet on Sundays. It's not just the quantity of food that is appealing, although there is more than enough to choose from, the quality is also very good... More

My wife and I went for our anniversary and the Battery was a great choice. The buffet brunch was oh so good. Beside breakfast items there was roast beef, deep fried turkey breast(my favorite) talapia and a great assortment of veggies. The cream style corn was the bomb. There was southern style green beans, fried okra, mixed squash and several... More

We had a very enjoyable dining experience at The Battery in Johnson City. My wife had crab cakes and I ordered the shrimp and grits. Both meals were terrific and reasonably priced. We enjoyed the Charleston flare and the ambience of the restaurant. This was our first visit to The Battery; however, we will be returning soon!

We were seated in the back of the restaurant and the atmosphere was uncomfortable due to the noise and restaurant temperature. The food took forever to be prepared and the service was horrible.

We went on a slow night when there were only maybe four tables being served. Still, the service was slow. And then, there was the food....The panko breaded shrimp was over-breaded and reminded me of Captain D's. The baked potatoes were uniformly terrible. It was like they had been sitting for too many hours and had completely dried out. This... More

Second visit was just as pleasant as the first a week earlier - My food was well prepared and presented: a sirloin steak cooked as requested. I particularly enjoyed oysters on the half-shell as a starter and the salad was also above average.. My wife remarked that the shrimp and grits was spicy and very good. One of our favorite... More
