Walking by and saw meatloaf and mashed potatoes $5.00. It was excellent. Our server, Marlena, could not have been more pleasant and attentive. We were there at 1:30 pm on a Wednesday so no wait. Definitely go if you can.

Five of us arrived on a busy evening to this bustling bar/restaurant and the receptionist quickly located a table for us. Our friendly waiter provided the menus and drinks were served promptly. All five of us had different main courses all cooked to perfection and highly enjoyable

Great locally owned and has actual chef's not frozen pre prepared foods like so many restuarants and chains have now gone too. The food is fabulous with variety. Italian food, southern comfort foods, seafood, salads. Everything I have had here is great. Prices are decent, especially their lunch specials are very reasonably priced. Come and enjoy, you want be sorry.

We were recently in Knoxville for the weekend visiting family. Knoxville is very spread out, and there are many, many good chain restaurants. However, our visit to the Downtown Grill and Brewery was our best choice, and we enjoyed it very much! The downtown location is really cool and gives you a taste of this city's downtown feel. The food... More

My husband and I were downtown for a movie,and stopped for lunch in the Downtown Grill and Brewery for lunch. Both of us had eaten there before and enjoyed it, but an additional incentive was the chalkboard outside advertising a burger special with homemade fries and a drink for about $8. I'd never tried a burger there.Oh, my gosh. It... More

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
