This restaurant is our favorite, and we've traveled across the country, so we know great restaurants. Our daughter requested this restaurant for her 16th so we traveled to Chattanooga for the evening to celebrate at St. John's. Everyone was amazing, the service was outstanding, the food was incredible, and even our picky son enjoyed the evening. The restaurant presented a... More

Love. Love. Love. We have heard The Meeting Place was the place to go for fresh interesting cuisine. It did not disappoint. We were able to be seated before Happy Hour (5-7) was over. The choices of cocktails for $5 was superb. We highly recommend the Texan which is a spin on the jalepeno margarita. The server was able to... More

This restaurant is amazing. The people are really friendly and the food is excellent. Fresh locally sourced ingredients cooked and plated beautifully. We always visit in the summer and the way they incorporate peaches and heirloom tomatoes into their dishes is just amazing.

What a great find. It was a family affair, so I tasted several dishes, and everything was exceptional. If I lived in Chattanooga, I would eat here at least once a week. Atmosphere is very nice, with dining at the very comfortable bar is an option. Vegetarian dishes are available and excellent. Staff is friendly and efficient. Can't give this... More

We were very impressed with St. John's restaurant. From the moment you enter you are greeted with a smile and courteous staff. The food is gourmet food, well-prepared and excellently served. The menu is farm driven and very diverse. My squash soup with lobster was superb. The duck entrée was amazing as was the chicken. We are not dessert eaters... More

My first time at St. John's and I will definitely be going back when I have the chance. Service was great. Food was great! Our waiter, Justin, was new but he did an excellent job and was very accommodating.

This restaurant is amazing. Every meal I've had here has been extraordinary. The building is very charming with a more formal upstairs area while the main dining downstairs is centered around an impressive bar. I almost always get the duck, which is fantastic, and my husband loves the Kobe beef. When available, the lobster soup is fantastic, and I've never... More

Wow. I never thought I would be writing anything but a positive review for St. John's Restaurant. As you can see from our Trip Advisor history, we've always been a big fan and supporter of St. John's. That said, our most recent experience(s) changed everything. Our party of 4 invested a "significant" amount of money in our appetizers, salads, main... More
