Our server, Jacob, was very nice and attentive. I had the prime rib with mashed potatoes and mushrooms, cooked perfectly. Hubby had Salmon with loaded baked potato, excellent! Always a very popular place, esp. on sports game nights.

We ate here before the Celtic Thunder concert. It was not our original destination but we were glad we discovered it. Portions were plentiful, prices were great as was the service. We will definitely eat here again when in downtown Knoxville

I have tried several of their beers, and they were top notch. I think I like their porter the best. These are all their in-house beers, I don't think they even offer outside options. Happy Hour offers $2.50 pints, which is really awesome compared to...More
