Solid downtown bar. Was here to watch a UT away game. Place was crowded with a lot going on. Prices were average for a center city. Their brew was good, and would recommend trying them all. There is pool etc upstairs with TVs. I would return here if I come back to the city.

We went here for dinner before an event. The service was pleasant and well paced. I ordered the Greek salad because we had a huge bowl of chips and guacamole. The guacamole was fresh and tasty and the chips were pretty good. My husband had shrimp that was a bit over done but good. It seems difficult to grill shrimp... More

Went here for a late dinner with some friends after an event. The food and atmosphere was pretty average. They made their own beer which is why we went, but on the craft beer side this one was forgettable. This is definitely more of a twentysomethings hang-out. Probably good for the Knoxville college crowd, but not one I would put... More

Ate here during our recent trip to Knoxville after receiving a recommendation from my brother who lived right down the street. The atmosphere is great and the food is even better. If you happen to go during Sunday brunch, try the Breakfast Fajitas! They are sure to leave you full and pleased!

We visited for dinner during happy hour - $2.50 pints of craft beer. Also happened to be ladies night - ordered 2 signature martinis for $5.00 each. Our entrees were the philly cheesesteak and a pasta with grilled chicken & cheese. The pasta was excellent; philly cheesesteak so-so. Craft beer and martinis were enjoyed. We sat upstairs and the entire... More

A short walk from Hilton Hotel brought us to this great restaurant. The wait wasn't bad and the food was great.

The atmosphere was good, the food was great, the service was great, and the brews were made in house. What more is there to ask for?

We have been here several times. Most often it is for brunch. Food selection is nice and tastes great. I always get the roasted red pepper omelet and my son loves the steak and eggs. I also appreciate that the first mimosa is only a quarter! Great local beer selection for the evenings; I prefer the lighter ones. I recommend... More

My friends and I visit this place a lot -- the location right downtown is excellent. It is easy to get in and out of to get to other bars and shops in the area. The service is usually pretty good, but with most places - it will slow down with large crowds. The food is pretty good - nothing... More

Very nice location in downtown Knoxville. We were able to find parking right outside, for free even! The restaurant has that nice old timey feel with the wood and all. They have their brew tanks set up in the middle so you can take a peek at the brewing operation. We didn't order food but they had a full menu... More
