“Great Atmosphere and Price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012 via mobile

My wife and I ate there for dinner during our stay on Lookout Mtn at the suggestion of our B&B staff. It was a great recommendation! Local, great atmosphere, friendly staff, good food, and reasonably priced. Suggestion: call ahead early and reserve one of the tables near the fireplace.

“A great local place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

We really enjoyed Cafe on the Corner during our recent visit to Lookout Mountain - once for a larger family dinner, and then again the next day for lunch, because there were so many things on the menu we wanted to try. A convenient location and delightful, simple atmosphere were matched by a warm greeting and service. Shrimp and grits, meatloaf, lemon herb chicken, excellent house made potato chips... yum!

“Perfect Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

We finally have seen Lookout Mountain and Rock City. Between, we stumbled on Cafe on the Corner. Lots of fresh sounding looking/sounding entrees. I had Gumbo and it was the kind that could give okra a good name. My wife had the daily special which was excellent. Wait staff personable and attentive. Pleasant casual surroundings.

“So Much Opportunity ...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

The only resturant on Lookout Mountain. Great location, nice atmosphere. Intreging menu but terrible service. I mean it was like the server was smoking something - failed to take orders, mixed up order presentations, failed to bring bread after committing to do so several times ...

Such a shame.

“Ruined by waiter”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Food was fair, my steak was cold, cold, cold. But the worst part of all was the service. Our waiter was out of it completely, forgot to tell me they were out of the special and then forgot to retake my order, forgot to bring enough wine glasses and totally forgot our bread even after we asked repeatedly. The menu and the atmosphere are delightful, but we were very disappointed.
