If you're looking for your food to "look pretty" but not be edible, this is your place!! My wife and I have traveled all of the world, and we can honestly say that we will NEVER be eating here again. It's BYOB, which is fine, but to charge an uncorking fee of $3 per person is ludicrous! If I wanted... More

We shared a daddy-daughter 19th birthday here last Saturday evening. This was my daughter's 1st birthday since moving to college and she "researched" the best place to eat in Sewanee...........what an excellent choice. The atmosphere was reminiscent of a boutique Soho, NOLO or Napa special gem. Most of the ingredients are locally produced and/or processed. The staff, without exception, is... More

We chose Ivy Wild (and chef Keri Moser) to cater our wedding reception and the groom's parents chose it for the rehearsal dinner as well. The food was tasty and beautifully presented, the wedding cake was like from a fairy tale, and the staff were very professional. We always go back.

My husband saw their article in the Tennessee co-op magazine and wanted to try it. We met 2 of our friends and my daughter and her husband there on Friday night, the 5th. The menu we saw online was not the menu for that night, this was ok. They didn't have what I wanted so I got the MIRIN GLAZED... More

The chef, Keri Moser, has received several awards and accolades for her very cosmopolitan cooking style while using farm fresh ingredients from local farms in south east TN. The portions tend to be smaller than lots of "meat and three" restaurants, but the presentation and flavor definitely makes up for that. You will savor every bite! Wonderful service! IvyWild has...

We were dropping off our daughter for college at The University of the South and wanted to have a nice dinner as a send off. Ivywild did not dissappoint! Great cheese selection and we brought some nice wines to compliment as it is BYOB. Great food (salmon is unreal) and great service. We will be back!

Great addition to the Sewanee area! We enjoy this restaurant for many reasons. It is a BYOB so I get to drink my favorites, the food is that which you would find in a 5 star restaurant in Atlanta for a fraction of the price! My personal favorite is the salmon, they ask you if how you like it done... More

My expectations were high and they were met. A once-in-a-decade meal with a bottle of brut rose champagne. I wish I lived within two hours distance, but plan to make it back again despite the four-hour timeframe.

This was my third trip to Ivy Wild. I was staying at a Bed and Breakfast in Monteagle, TN and found Ivy Wild when I was looking for a place to have a decent meal on Monteagle Mountain about a year ago. (I lived in Sewanee twice, 1967/68 and 1975-77; so I was up for trying this place in Sewanee.)... More

We dined at Ivy Wild on a recent visit to Sewanee and it was, by far, the best meal we had in the area. It's located inside a very unassuming building and the inside is quite plain. But the food is another story! We loved that they used local food and products. Our server, Mary Jane, was incredibly knowledgable about... More
