“Fun night out”
Reviewed April 12, 2014

We enjoy fun nights out with friends or just as a couple at the Flying Squirrel. The location is great and the staff has been wonderful. They make drinks based on your preference (for example they made me a pumpkin bourbon drink - which they determined just from conversation). The drinks are great and the food is just right for a night out. We tried the fries and the chicken.

If you don't feel like sitting in the bar area and it is too chilly for sitting outside, then head upstairs. They have sofas set up which make for a more intimate conversation setting.

“Duck tacos are the best”
Reviewed April 1, 2014

We just happened to go to this place to get a drink because we were staying next door but it turned out to be a great place to sample some TN beer and a late night snack. And the next night we had an ice cream emergency and guess what? They serve Clumpie's ice cream.

“Great draft beer selection”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

The Flying Squirrel is great! So many people love that place. By 10 it's packed. Their draft beer selection is absolutely amazing I could have just tasted beer all night and not even talked to anyone...but that would have been hard to do since the bartenders are so cute.

“Ginger-lover's dream”
Reviewed March 20, 2014

Listen: If you like ginger, and you like cocktails, do yourself a favour and hit up the Flying Squirrel for The Opportunist. Phenomenal. I didn't get a chance to try their food but heard great things from fellow travellers.

“Beautiful Bar/Restaurant”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

My wife and I visited for the first time on March, 25th, 2014. There is not host seating patrons, but it was nice to just look around and seat ourselves. The architecture is beautiful, windows galore, and very bright, open feeling.

Our server greeted us promptly and took our drink orders. Tuesday night is half price wine night so we ordered a surprising affordable Napa Cabernet. The Squirrel is more bar than restaurant but the food they do offer transcends normal bar food fare. We had Duck Tacos, Cuban (pork belly) Tacos, and Lamb Lollis (mini chops). The Cuban was our favorite, it was moist and very flavorful. The Lamb was unevenly cooked, but still delicious.

To add to the very agreeable atmosphere, live music started soon after we arrived. A single acoustic guitar and electric violin really added to our night..not too loud, but loud enough to enjoy.
If you are in Chattanooga, put the Flying Squirrel on your list of must dos.
