went with a business group on a colleague's recommendation. Fabulous! great beer and cocktail selection, and the western cuisine was quite tasty. has exotic meat selection as well as the traditional choices. Pricey but worth it.

My family of five went on a Friday night with a 6pm reservation. Got right in.
Our server gave great recommendations. We tried four of the first course offerings (appetizers). My two favorites were the fabulous lobster hush puppies and the Elk sliders. Yum! The spouse and daughter shared the Texas chili. He loves spicy so it was perfect for him. The daughter said it had a great flavor but a bit too spicy for her. My main course was the garlic stuffed beef tenderloin with asparagus. It melted in my mouth! Dessert was the blueberry galette with lemon curd ice cream. Another hit! Highly recommend. Pricey so be prepared.

We received a sizable gift card and made a reservation for a date night. We were seated after a short wait and were quickly met by our waiter David and his insights into a unique menu. We went straight to an appetizer of elk sliders and they were wonderful! The salad and breads were just as nice. We both ordered Elk Loin, medium rare and it was a treat we don't get often in Knoxville. The service was just attentive enough and the manager Mark was very solicitous.

It is on the expensive side but it was worth it. We will be back.

Enjoyed dinner. We experienced about 5 items on the first round - elk sliders, grilled oysters, deviled crab were our favorites. I enjoyed the beef tenderloin and it was great. Others enjoyed the trout, venison and buffalo ribeye. They were all outstanding. Good wine selection. Service was outstanding. Server was very knowledgeable and gave us great recommendations. Not a place for an inexpensive dinner. Pricey but worth the price. Wild game options are plentiful. They are flexible on the first round dishes. Usually comes 3 to a plate. They can add or take away to make sure everyone gets what they desire.

The food and service are excellent. We went there for our anniversary and we were so pleased. Our server Kyle explained everything to us and made our experience that much better. There was nothing that we tried that we did not thoroughly enjoy. We ended up spending just over 2 hours there and it was awesome. Thank you everyone there for making it a special evening for us.
