We checked into our hotel & asked the desk clerk for a recommendation for a place to eat. We told him we wanted something we couldn't find in every town. He recommended this place. We were given a coupon for free fried green tomato appetizer. They were very good. We also had the nightly special of crab stuffed salmon ($19.95), 2 piece fried chicken ($12) and ameretto pie ($5). Everything was excellent. Our waitress could have been friendlier & filled my tea glass again, but the hostess was friendly as could be. All in all, we would go there again because the food was so good.

We went to this restaurant based on the recommendation of the hotel we were staying at. They gave us a coupon for a free plate of fried green tomatoes with purchase of two entrees. The tomatos and other food we ordered was excellent. The owners are very personable. They came by our table to see how everything was and when we stopped to thank them on the way out they gave us some helpful sightseeing tips.

I eat at Mt. Vernon on a regular basis, I took some clients there from Memphsis and they fell in love with the food. It has great Southern cooking, the daily specials are always delicious and the regular menu is really good as well. The owner/manager is always there, checking to see if the food is good and that things are always what they should be. Service is always very good, food is always fresh and tasty.....the desserts (Amarito Pie) is to die for. Heaven on a fork! If you are visting Chattanooga, Mt. Vernon sits at the foot of Lookout Mountain on Broad Street and you simply must try it. If you live here and have never eaten there, you are missing out. It's a great place to meet and greet and get some really good food!!!

First when you walk in it smells of fried food. They really need a new hood vent. The food was battered way too much. A little pricey also. The waitress was fast and efficient. I wouldn't go back.

Mt. Vernon Restaurant that was suggested to us by another couple who frequent the area often. We're glad we did. It was wonderful! The food was much more tasty than the fancy fine dining restaurant we visited on our anniversary. We spent twice as much for food that was only mediocre at the fine dining establishment. We both wished we'd chosen Mt. Vernon for our anniversary dinner instead. The service at Mt. Vernon was very nice, too! Next trip we're making it our go-to place to eat!
