The three restaurants in the art district are all worth visiting. I love sitting outside Rembrandt's in summer as it feels like a piece of Europe in Chattanooga. The view from the balcony at Tony's is also amazing.

We've been to Chattanooga quite a few times, and truly enjoy this city. We decided to head to the Bluff View Art District for lunch (we walked there from the Marriott Hotel) after we toured through the River Market (arts & crafts booths) near the Tennessee Aquarium. My husband and I both enjoy local artists, and we were not disappointed... More

Visited the Hunter Museum (amazing), then wandered around to see the various sculptures (including the sculpture garden, which is not to be missed). Tony's was a disappointment for lunch: mediocre food and an uncaring waiter didn't make me feel welcome. Better was the afternoon sojourn at Rembrandt's: decadent pastries (loved the chocolate boat) and frappe, plus outdoor tables where I... More

This is a nice place to go for a stroll. There is a nice atmosphere to the area as if you are suddenly in a cute little villa.

The area has a sculpture park you can walk to, great little shops for coffee, artisan breads and shopping. It also has one of the bike rental racks nearby if you want to ride around and take in the buildings and vibe of the area. Great for a leisurely stroll on Sunday afternoon with a coffee or pastry in hand

Thank John W
