My wife and I located this restaurant online shortly after getting settled into our hotel. We were impressed with the prices on the menu as well as the items on it.

Parking was extremely tight; but we were fortunate to come across someone just pulling out of their parking space. Upon being seated, we were introduced to our host (named Skeeter). He far exceeded our expectations in not only catering to our needs but interacting with us...as if we were VIP guests at his home. He was very engaging and made our experience there a most enjoyable one.

Our appetizer was fried green tomatoes; and the pimento cheese made for an excellent compliment to the dish. For the main course, my wife had the fried flounder with a side of mac & cheese and collard greens (seasoned w/ smoked turkey) while I had the blackened trout with a side of mashed potatoes and sauteed green beans.

So the food was great and our host was great which made for a nice romantic anniversary dinner with my wife.

Went with my husband for drinks and dinner. Service was superb and so was the food. The blueberry mojito was to die for.

We decided to do a quick wkend trip to Chattanooga. Around dinner time everyone was hungry so I pulled up Trip Advisor to find a place to eat and we decided on this place. We got there around 730 and the place was packed. We waited an hour for a table but it was worth the wait. I ordered the Fried Flounder and it came with hush puppies and cole slaw. This was the best fried fish, it was crispy and light and seasoned perfectly. The hush puppies were the best I have ever had. I usually don't eat them but these were delish. They were crispy on the outside and tender and mouthwatering on the inside. My husband had the Steak and he said it was awesome. Like I said before this place is worth the wait. It's not expensive we spent about 60.00 and we also had cocktails.
