    Watch for the beer-food pairing five course prix fixe dinners on Monday nights monthly. They are amazing. Highly recommended and you'll not see anything like this in Knoxville for sure.

    Their brunch changes every week and is my favorite in Knoxville. Check out the menu in the Metro Pulse each week or on their facebook page. Bloody Marys and mimosas for $5.50. Read more

    The fried green tomatoes here are perfection. The combination with goat cheese creates a tangy, melt in your mouth combination that cannot be beat.

    For a vegetarian entree, try the grilled portobellos with fried green tomatoes. It is something beyond the typical pasta or veggie burger you get at most restaurants.

    Vegetarian/Vegan friendly, but meat dishes are listed on the menu. Not cheap, but the food is delicious and worth the higher cost!

    The black bean burger is tasty, and the jalapeno-garlic aioli keeps it moist, unlike a lot of dry veggie burgers I've gotten elsewhere.

    They &$@%ed everything up by rising the prices so drastically, getting rid of mine and all my friends' favorite meals too!! Plus vegan/vegetarian?! Only 2 entrees without meat!!

    Great food. Amazing number of glory holes between the booths. Some smaller. Some larger. Plan accordingly.

    Ask about the steak before ordering it, @ $18 it had better be a really good cut, grilled beef is not their forte. Buyer beware.

    They did not have dairy free milk but I was able to make some adjustments to their meme Nd create my own vegan option.

    They ruined the curry tofu tacos!!! They used to be longer...and the prices?! Forget about it. Used to be a regular and after I got over my anger only go back for wine night.
