This was the only stop on the Knoxville Ale Trail that we had time for as it was close to the interstate. There are screens for every team, labeled with the game of the day via a sign taped beneath the screen. Not sports fans, we came for the food and the beer and were not disappointed. Eight beers are... More

This place has the best Long Island Tea in town. I'm not a beer drinker, but they seem to serve plenty. The food is pretty consistent and it's a fun atmosphere. Service varies, but is usually pretty good.

Stopped by during a UT game. Receptionist just shrugged when we came in and told us we could look for a seat but...Luckily it was the third quarter and we were able to find 2 seats at one of the bar tables. Thoroughly enjoyed the evening due to the game and its fans. Food was just ok, service good. But... More

Stopped here for dinner on our overnight through Knoxville, couldn't have chosen better. Even though there were some other favorites within a stones throw (Bonefish, Fleming's, Longhorn) the were looking for microbrewer beer and bar food that night. The flights are 6 oz pours and come in 3,4, or 5 choices - which is very convenient as you're not ordering... More

We ate hear as a family and I must say we won't go back. The food is over priced for the taste and quality. Our server was really nice. Our son ordered shrimp and they had to walk next door to Calhoun's to get some. To be fair we are not alcohol drinkers. I am sure if we drank beer... More

I've been here a few times and it has been consistently good. The beers on tap are very good and at a reasonable price. The bar area has several large flat screen tv's tuned to various sports broadcasts. Service was good even though they were packed. Good beer and atmosphere!

We were looking for a sit-down restaurant and saw this huge sign on the outside of the restaurant which said, cheeseburger and French fries $5.50 on Wednesdays. So we hobbled in after driving for several hours. We were greeted promptly and seated. Our waitress, Ashley, was delightful! Well informed on which homemade beer was comparable to main brands. My husband... More

Food was good but service was slow. Burgers were excellent. Gluten free pizza was very expensive. No prices marked on the gluten free menu.

Serve Simple Foods Whatever the specific restaurant concept, the ability to create menu items in a consistently excellent manner is directly related to ease of production and simplicity of presentation. Consistency at a high level is always more important than innovation. Use The Finest quality Ingredients There is no more essential factor in a successful menu program than the quality of ingredients used in food preparation. Starting with the best is the only possible way to end up with the best. Keep The Environment Clean, Organized and In Proper Working Order Concern for the guest means being attentive to all environmental details from maintenance of the physical plant to the personal grooming of each individual employee. Cleanliness and order are the keys to building guest confidence in the establishment. Make Memorable Moments It is the perfecting of all the little details in a restaurant that makes the guest's dining experience a memorable one. With every action, the appropriate question is: does this act show a commitment to excellence and respect for the patronage of the guest? Work As a Team Ease, efficiency and enjoyment of the restaurant experience, for both employees and guests, is directly related to the level of respect, support and cooperation among the staff. Any restaurant guest is everybody's guest; any restaurant responsibility is everybody's responsibility.
