Family of four went for dinner. The food was upscale diner with in house dressings and fresh ingredients. The Shrimp Mac & Cheese is the best you'll ever have. For anyone wondering it beats Puckett's Gouda Mac & Cheese Hands Down! I had the turkey club. It was very good. The fries were $1 more than the house made chips... More

It is a cute place on the Riverfront. It was recommended to me for breakfast. The wait staff was very nice and friendly. I had pancakes which were very good. I asked for cheese in my hash brown's and the young lady brought them to me on the side. I had to ask her to put them on the hash... More

We like to eat here when we are attending events downtown. Casual atmosphere with available outside dining near the Tennessee Aquarium and Ross's Landing at the waterfront. Great food and service.

Delicious food. A view of the river. Can't ask for much more. I must recommend the shrimp mac and cheese. And the pulled pork. This is a funky little restaurant with a great menu. Even our picky kids loved it. And it won't drain your wallet. Dogs are welcome on the patio. Save room for the ice cream right next... More

I have to be honest. I was really not expecting much from the place, since it said it was a diner. Wow, was I wrong. This restaurant turned out to be my favorite of several places we visited down town. The pork sandwich was really great, but it was the pancakes(which we had for lunch) that were unbelievable, as well... More

We visited here for breakfast and wanted to try the local taste. I had the chicken and pancake (their twist on chicken and waffle) and it was very tasty. Hashbrowns could have used some work. And the pancake is crazy thick. The place is on the pricy side, i guess due to the location close to the river and the... More

Today we drove up for the day to visit Chattanooga and I searched on line for a pet friendly restaurant and we were not disappointed. We were pleased we could park immediately behind the restaurant and this was easy for my husband since walking is difficult and upon arriving we were seated. Our waiter came out and was very pleasant... More
