The triangular building (and the name) caught our attention when we passed the Pickle Barrel while riding on the downtown shuttle so we decided to check it out after dinner. It's an interesting place! Low ceilings, rock walls, dark and full of nooks and crannies. We took two stools at the bar which sat about 10. The bartender was very... More

This bar is pretty cool. It is shaped as the outline of the corner of the street. Great outdoor seating to watch the nightlife go by. Enloyed drinks at the bar and outside. Not sure about food as we only had late evening drinks.

Wife and I barely stepped inside before leaving. Way too smokey inside. Wife has asthma and can't breathe easily. Look somewhere else if you're in same boat.

We called an order in after a full day visiting local attractions. It was easy to place the order and it was ready when we picked it up. Great burger and salad and they made sure to include plenty of condiments and plastic ware. Nice little local bar/restaurant; Warning: smoking is allowed in the establishment and even though I was...

This is one of my favorites in Chattanooga. Downtown location,spiral staircase to rooftop seating, food was good, well-stocked bar, but my favorite thing is the building itself! Unique, cute, old, wooden, nothing cookie-cutter about this place. ( FYI - apparently it's against the law for ANYONE under 21 even to be one the premises. We got kicked out with a... More

Nothing spectacular about this restaurant. Menu was average with a few interesting touches. Good beer/drink selection. Staff seemed over worked, but they took care of us well. Establishment is 21 and up, as they allow smoking inside. I am not a smoker so I didn't care for this, but we sat outside on the rooftop and it was really nice.... More

What a fun place! We visited Chattanooga for the weekend and were walking down the street and came across this flat iron building which I thought was really quaint. We decided to go in and check it out. We shared a Reuben sandwich which was very yummy! We had a beer and enjoyed the ambience that this quaint little place... More

Go here for beers every year we come down. People are so great. Go upstairs on the winding stairs to the roof! Great food too.
