We arrived on a Saturday without a reservation but were able to be seated at the bar, where we were well attended to. Enjoyed the duck and some cocktails and wine. Wish we'd had room for the huckleberry hand pie!

They know how to treat their customers. The food is excellent and the desire is very nice. Great for the holidays or a family get together.

For my husband and I, St. John's is our hometown, go-to restaurant, whenever you want to dress up fancy, and celebrate an occasion: an anniversary, a friend's birthday, or to "wow" an interviewing potential work colleague. We have dined here often and the atmosphere, food, and beverages have never disappointed. Two of my favorite dining experiences at St. John's were... More

Had the chicken- absolutely superb and filet was cooked perfectly. Even with having reservation we had to wait 20 minutes then another 30 for food after we ordered. Butter for bread was also delicious

We went to the restaurant for my Mother in Law's 90th Birthday. They were sweet and treated her to a dessert and she was so thrilled (it had a candle it in!). The food was great, the crab appetizer with pimento was the best I have ever had. My Filet was cooked perfectly and was almost "melt in your mouth"!... More

The farm to table movement is the best thing that could happen to American food. St. John's is doing this with just enough experimentation to make a meal fabulous. The pimento cheese appetizer was perfect way to ease into the meal. And when another table cleared-out the inventory of racks of lamb, they were quick to substitute a filet what... More

We thoroughly checked out Chattanooga restaurants on the internet, before we decided on St. John's and it was a very good decision. Researching restaurants in Chatt., we found St. John's was at the top of the heap ( including the TOP) on Trip Advisor so....

Great service, good food, and pleasant but not opulent decor. Haute cuisine might describe it and prices very high. Good for a special occasion.
