Great Meal!

My wife and I both had Dan's Chicken Pasta, and it was fantastic! Both of our Caesar salads were very good as well. The chips & salsa appetizer was also good. Would definitely recommend this place!

Downtown Grill and Brewery is a great place to dine for Sunday brunch! They had a jazz band playing and your first mimosa was $0.25 cents. My husband ordered the breakfast fajitas and I had the biscuits and gravy with breakfast potatoes and sides of bacon. So yummy and the prices were good. A new favorite spot for Sunday Funday!

Food is always good, never had a bad meal there-there is usually a wait depending on when you go. Service is always good but it is a bit loud for conversation.

several visits over the last 10 years and really enjoy the atmosphere and beer - first and foremost and the food and service are really good too. I like the beer sampler, the downtown blonde, the nut influenced brews. Most recently the black and bleu salad (went with the Caesar) was a HUGE portion - I carried out and made... More

The atmosphere was amazing as the staff. We were a party of 6 walking around and decided to try this spot. The mesquite tenderloins was amazing as well as the jambalaya pot pie. Unfortunately I ordered the Cajun chicken pasta which was very dry and chicken was over cooked. Other than that I would give it a five.

Every free weekend we get with friends, we always head to the Brewery. One of my favorite places. I prefer their house brewed IPA. Always a good time, atmosphere, and experience when we go here. Would highly recommend!

I NEVER make a trip to the state of Tennessee without going to my favorite restaurant downtown Knoxville , I found this place about 4 years ago before a Tennessee Volunteers (go big orange) football game and fell in love with the "downtown blonde" beer made in house, I've had nearly everything on the menus now and just last Sunday...

The food was pretty good. The service was below average. The Jazz band after 1 Sunday was good as well. The upstairs is. Little smokey due to the lack of ventilation from the kitchen. I would go there again but recommendation is it is okay.

We went to the Downtown Brewery for a late dinner. It was packed. We went to the bar and waited for a table. We were immediately served by the bartender. The beer is excellent. We got a table pretty quickly. Our waitress was great. We got a beer sampler and liked most of the beers. The actual food was just... More

I went here the other day and got their blackened fish meal with some sweet potato fries and asparagus, and it was simply outstanding. The cooks really know what they're doing here, and I always look forward to a good meal here!
