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

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
