When visiting downtown Knoxville, we often end up eating at the Downtown Grill and Brewery. They have good food and good beer. What more could you ask.

We locals refer to it as DTGB. This place crafts it's own beer, offers a full bar and good food from pizza to ribs to quesadillas. Their hot pretzels with beer cheese dip excellent too.
