Bridgeman's Chophouse offers the finest cuts of beef and largest wine selection in Chattanooga. This classic, upscale chophouse is named after Peter Bridgeman (aka "Peter Rabbit"). Mr. Bridgeman was one of the most well-known employees of The Read House for 47 years. He served locals and visitors alike and almost never forgot a name or a face.

The 32 oz. dry-aged Tomahawk rib-eye special that my husband and I shared was honestly nothing to crow about. It had a lot of gristle, was chewy, and over-cooked. We asked for medium rare and it was medium at best. The sides we shared were...More

No dress code but definitely worth sprucing up to dine there and tour the hotel- it’s a must see- be sure to check out the bar area off the main lobby- the staff is dressed like back in the Roaring 20’s!
