My colleagues and I happened to choose Ladies' Night to stop in at DGB, and I had a few of the best gin and tonics I've ever tasted! The service was great, as was the food. It was a little noisy, so I wouldn't come here in more intimate circumstances. Otherwise, no complaints here!

My husband always gets the Delmonico Ribeye and mashed potatoes. Great location, food, and atmosphere makes this our go-to restaurant when going to a concert at either the Tennesee Theatre or Bijou in Knoxville.

We only had a few beers and an appetizer but my boyfriend and I really liked it. We had chips and guacamole and it was delish and he is very picky about guacamole. The atmosphere was good and place is historical so I liked that about it. We say at the bar and it is very beautiful with the wood... More

There are better places downtown to spend your time and money. This place is only ok in my opinion. The place is very loud and could use some better acoustics. Food is average and nothing to brag about. Service is spotty.

They have a live jazz trio from 11-1:00. Food is really good with reasonable prices. Its kinda loud at times but that's okay. Plenty of leg room and it looks clean. Don't like the bathroom, cramped and dark. : - ( But, it has a lively atmosphere and overall fun place to sit with a group. I will definitely visit... More

The food encompasses the spirit and flavor of knoxville. very unique with a little bit of everything . They brew their beers that no traditional domestic brew can even come close to..ie Budweiser. Servers are very friendly and seems to live their job. Great place to watch the game with 10 tvs and a giant projector. Seem to always have... More

With so many other really amazing restaurants in Knoxville this one was really a disappointment! We waited for a really long time for our food and once it arrived was really cold and bland. The beer cheese and pretzels were good but I have had good ones at other restaurants too. Not a place I would take out of town... More

I'm a close 20 miles away from Downtown Grill and Brewery and frequent this Knoxville landmark a couple times a month. As a craft beer enthusiast, I go for the beer. DGB has a 15 barrel brewing system and 8 brews are always on tap covering a wide range of styles including IPA, Kolsch, ESB, Stout, Porter, Alt, and Brown... More

As someone who visits Knoxville on business regularly, the Downtown Grill and Brewery is my go to place. There are usually interesting people around the island bar to talk with. The food is typical pub style with a little bit of everything and the house made beers are good quality. The happy hour prices are excellent. $2.50 for their beers... More
