We usually go somewhere other than the hotel we stay in, but found ourselves spending some time at the Orange Martini. We enjoyed to the interior bar while relaxing with drinks and appetizers before going out to dinner. The appetizers were good and drinks were priced reasonably. We also spent time on the outdoor patio and watch a game on... More

I am hoping we caught them on a bad night. We sat outside (patio is beautiful) at 9:00 pm. The waitress did not get our drinks right on two tries. We then tried the Orange Martinis. Horrible....tasted like orange juice and vodka. Someone else ordered blueberry cobbler and it literally was blueberry pie filling warmed up with whip cream on... More

Had the chance to try out this place while staying at the Hilton. It's much better than the hotel. Bartender was very friendly and attentive. My friend and I both had burgers and fries which were very tasty. Prices are very reasonable.

Mandy makes the most perfect martini ever. A simple drink but so easy to get wrong, her martini is ultra cold with a thin layer of ice crystals on top. I've had martinis all over but none better than at The Orange Martini from Mandy!

This is a better than average hotel bar. The cocktails are great, and they have a variety of local beers on tap.

I come to Knoxville for a week once a year during the week before Memorial Day for Destination Imagination Global Finals, and we often frequent The Orange Martini for drinks during the evenings. We've been pretty impressed with them - good bartenders, cool atmosphere, adequate seating, and a good selection of beers. If I'm correct, they've even stayed open late... More

Nice set up. But most importantly their staff makes people feel comfortable and welcomes them to the city. Knoxville has alot going on but sometimes it takes someone on the inside to point you in the right direction. These ladies are really good about knowing the area, as well as being good bartenders and servers.

The Orange Martini is literally just a bar with bar food. The servers both nights I was there were distracted by their personal friends that were sitting at the bar or the gossip they had to talk about behind the bar. Everything seems to be a taxing effort and they appear to be very ambivalent if you are there, unless... More
