“A Good Time with a View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012 via mobile

One of the few places you can go in Chattanooga where you cam enjoy a night out with dinner, dancing, drinks and live music all in one place. Friendly wait staff, good food and cold drinks. Bart's Lakeshore has live music weekly and nightly specials. We all had a good time and a night to remember.

“Go for the view”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

Bart's has arguably the best view of the Chickamauga Lake from a restaurant. The food can be very good, but is inconsistent. Ditto for the service. Smoking is allowed, so if that's a deal killer don't go.

“Smoke annoying, food great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012 via mobile

The food was wonderful, especially the greek salad. The smoke was annoying. These days restaurants just shouldn't allow smoking. The food was great.

“Customer Service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

Been hangin' at Bart's for a LONG time. "Bart" is NOT friendly....one would expect a bit of customer service from the owner. He's barely said hello in several years. I go there because it's convenient...not becasue he's made me feel welcome. Moved to Chattanooga from Ft. Lauderdale several years ago and was always accustomed to being treated as a "regular" at restaurants/bars of choice. That's not the case at Bart's. When anyone frequents an establishment, it's nice to feel appreciated. We work diligently for our money and if we choose to spend it to keep some place in business, they should appreciate it. His girlfriend/office manager has the same attitude. She darts around and has yet to speak.

The staff is almost always great, friendly and provide great service. Without the staff, Bart wouldn't keep the doors open. And he wouldn't keep his doors open if there was any remote competition in that particular area.

Having said all of this, I continue to go there by choice because it's convenient and staff treats me great.
