“Nice local restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2014

Chose this restaurant based on its proximity to our hotel and its Tripadvisor ratings. We were not disappointed - the food was good, the service was quick and efficient and the restaurant was clean and inviting. We sat in the dining room behind the bar - it was a little noisy, but not objectionable. Next time we're in west Knoxville, we'll likely eat here again.

“Always good”

good food, fresh, healthy and great prices. One of my favorite plates of food; baked salmon with mustard sauce with steamed broccoli and mashed potatoes, good to the last forkful.

“Great food, good service.”

Get the steak bites from the appetizer menu and the margarita in a mason jar! We would definitely eat here again if traveling to Knoxville.

“Close to motels and fairly good...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2014

Arrived during an unusual strong snowstorm and checked into a nearby motel. Asked the front desk for their dining recommendations and they suggested Parkside but due to the storm, perhaps they would close the restaurant? Say what?! People are still coming off the snow blasted highways and seeking accommodations at any/all motels and this restaurant wants to close?!! As we could literally see it from our motel, we meandered down there and were seated in the bar area which we always prefer as it's always fun and busy. Served by 'Megan' who was absolutely delightful and efficient. Martini's were done to perfection and after 10 hours of driving, were welcomed. Relaxed and ordered grilled salmon on buns with hot fries with a side of asparagus and everything was absolutely done to perfection. Salmon grilled hot and not overdone! Fries were hot and crispy which many high-end restaurants don't understand. Asparagus just absolutely wonderful! But what a surprise to find we were charged $8 for the asparagus when it was on the menu for $2! Apparently, we didn't read the fine print...buyer beware. Ordered a nice Shiraz but noticed the bartender filled her nearby friends drinks a whole lot more than what I was receiving - for the same price. Strongly suggested to Megan I receive the same - which she did. Next time we drive thru, hope we get Megan with her winning ways!

“Something for Everyone”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2014

Large varied menu, pleasant wait staff and manager. Dinner was good and reasonably priced. Nice to go to a good local restaurant rather than a chain.
Was recommended by hotel staff where we stayed.
