Food was very good but service was a bit slow. We were here for a lazy afternoon so the slower service was not a big deal. Food was very good and wait staff was very friendly. The ambiance was also very good...excellent backgroundd music.

The desk clerk at the Fairfield Inn (Lookout Mountain) recommended the grill. I arrived about 11am. It was full but didn't feel packed. The server recommended the shrimp and grits. It was excellent and service was wonderful.More
