This simple yet friendly healthy restaurant, complete with a porch on Market Square, was the perfect place for a person with food allergies. I enjoyed the large and tasty Southwestern salad with chicken. My date couldn't believe how much I ate, because it was an...More

We have been here before. The kitchen was a little slow, but a solid fresh meal with great options for vegetarians and vegans.

Shared a large Caesar (mushrooms & olives in the salad stuck me as unusual, but tasty) and their meat-lovers pizza. Just right for lunch on a hot day with other places to visit! Good service, great value, nice local beer selection....what else can you ask?

Food was pretty good. It is pricey for pizza but generally healthier than your average pizza. My husband and I ordered the lamb sausage. He didn't like it but didn't complain about it. They waitress saw that he had picked it off and put it...More

I really loved the pizza that I got here. I got the salmon and pesto pizza. They also have some great cocktails. But, I found the ambience to be pretty lackluster.

We ordered a pizza. They use locally grown ingredients. It was good but was pricey. Their key lime pie was very smooth and tangy.

We visited here based on the rating from TripAdvisor and left wondering why it was rated so high. The beers were quite pricey, as was the food. The food was good, but not exceptional at all. I feel sure that there are better places in...More

We believe less processed food tastes better. Not only does it taste better, it's much healthier too. You'll notice this difference in our house made dressings and handcrafted pizzas, as well as in our colorful salads and sandwiches. Fresh produce from East Tennessee farmers like Hines Valley Farm, Mountain Meadows Farm and Colvin Family Farm is featured in our daily specials. Well known for our vegan and vegetarian dishes, our menu has plenty for the carnivore. All of our proteins are nitrate/nitrite free, all natural and antibiotic free. Our house made lamb sausage is cooked in small batches to ensure freshness. Our sister bakery, Flour Head Bakery, prepares all of the Tomato Head's desserts and breads (including gluten free!) Each morning. By using unbleached and unbromated King Arthur Flour, we create healthier and better tasting pizza dough and sandwich breads. We also can easily accommodate your dietary needs. Whether it's a nut allergy, a preference for vegan fare or a gluten sensitivity, our staff will craft a dish to suit your tastes.
