My husband and I really enjoyed our date night here. The food was good, service was good and anything downtown takes the place up a notch. We enjoyed walking around after dinner and viewing the sights and visiting shops.

The DG+B is a great stop for dinner and drinks before going to the TN theatre. Generally, the place gets crowded and somewhat loud, especially on the lower, bar level. The menu offers a variety of good food. The various pasta and burgers are tasty. service has always been good.

Friday night here was a blast while visiting my friends for the first time in Knoxville. I highly recommend sitting outside - fun to people watch and seating is first come / first serve. My fish and chips were hands down fantastic and I always appreciate local brews on tap. Prompt and friendly service rounded out a great experience that... More

A great beer selection and I highly recommend Dan's chicken pasta. It can be a rather loud spot, so if you're hoping for an intimate tete-a-tete, this is not the place for you :)

Food was ok. I had the Durango chicken and bit into a small bone. Yeah I have never had that happen In a boneless chicken breast. Anyways, it is more of a place to sit and drink a beer with friends for sure. The atmosphere I will say is awesome. It has 2 levels with the balconies looking over below... More

When gathering downtown for an event, this is the place to go for a good lunch, dinner and a great beer. The food is good, tasty, priced fairly and the atmosphere is relaxed. Parking is free just down the hill, same block. Nobody has to stamp anything. Lots of UT people here, contractors and locals. One place you can find... More

Found this nice brew pub in downtown Knoxville. Very busy place. When I walked in - alone - nobody offered assistance as to how seating was done. Finally told to find a spot myself. Afterwards everyone who came in not alone was escorted to a table. Not sure of that malfunction and why a single person is treated so differently.... More

Located in downtown Knoxville this restaurant has good craft beer and yummy food. We grabbed a quick dinner and beer before a concert at the Tennessee Theater and the food was good and the service fast.

The food is decent, but tends to be a little over-cooked. They really push their line of beers on you, which I guess is to be expected from a brewery. The challenge lies in the fact that most people I've talked to aren't impressed with their beers. And if you don't like the ones they brew, their selection becomes EXTREMELY... More
