When we come to Knoxville in May, we're catching UT baseball on Saturday, Chattanooga on Sunday and Cades Cove on Monday.
I haven't been to either Chat or Cades since 1990. Where can we eat?
Outside of Lookout Mountain, is the next main attraction the aquarium?
Dude, check out Aretha Frankensteins
Sticky Fingers of course. Chattanooga is a great town. I haven't been enough.
There are only four answers to any question: Yes, No, I don't know, or the Correct Answer.
Right around the Aquarium, there's Cheeburger Cheeburger, Five Guys, and Good Dog (across the river, but you can take a walk on the bridge instead of driving). Sticky Fingers and Aretha Frankenstin's are good, and people I went to school with swear by Champy's Chicken (I think that's the name). There is a Ben & Jerry's by the Aquarium for your ice cream fix...

Oh man, there is Genghis Grill, which is a piece of heaven, also. There is also the Terminal that has a killer beer selection, along with Taco Mac. A lot of great places. I love down town chat man.
Mellow Mushroom is awesome down there too, it is on broad street. Plus, if you are a coffee shop fan there are a ton of great places: Mean Mug, The Camp House, and Grey Friars are some of my favorites.
Sticky Fingers went corporate... not nearly as good as the old school Sticky.
My advice is go to the Doubletree Hotel on Chestnut and ask the front desk for a restaurant guide. It has all local restaurants, what local farms provide their produce and meat, seasonality guide and price points.
Any hotel or the downtown visitors center at the Aquarium should also have this publication
Chattanooga has changed in so many different and good ways and arts and food being a focal point. The aquarium is for the true tourist...like a little generic but still cool.
Just get a city guide/map and walk around and you will run into many hidden jewels.
I'm partial to Big River Grill. Good eats and a killer craft beer selection.
Lupi's Pizza, Sofa King Juicy Burger, Good Dog, Hair of the Dog, Big Chill, Urban Stack, Foodworks, River St. Deli, Thai Smile, 212 Market, Back End Cafe, Tony's Pasta... All LOCAL...and just the tip of the iceberg.

Duh, sticky fingers...get the smoked wings, all drums and douse them in Carolina mustard sauce...damn, I may have to head down there for lunch on Sunday.
Sticky does have the best wings though... but I just cant go there bc they are corporate and there are way way too many local establishments that serve LOCALY GROWN FOOD.
PLEASE EAT LOCAL!!!
Someone mentioned going to Ben & Jerry's for ice cream. I'd suggest walking across the walking bridge and going to Clumpies for I've cream.
The Terminal Brewhouse has taken over for me as my brewery of choice over Big River. Beer is better.
Another place if your looking for a burger is Urban Stack. Great burgers.
Thanks for all the suggestions! We would definitely prefer to eat at places that are local. Chains are fine but I could eat at any of those here at home.
I'm amped up about this trip!
If you like fried chicken and Peach Cobbler, go to Bea's Restaurant on Dodds Ave, you can thank me later.

The wait for your food at Aretha's is terrible. They need to turn orders around faster.
Every time we had friends in town I would take them to Bea's. best fried chicken ever. My wife hates it b/c of sharing the table with other people but that is part of the experience.
They've been cooking the chicken the same way for 60+ yrs., the old saying there holds true, if it ain't broke, don't try and fix it.
Big River is what I was going to say as well. Plus one if the main chefs is a VFL
If you want nice history then go to Mt. Vernons.
If you want sloppy history then go to Tubbys or Nikkis on Frazier.
All good food.

Big River is our favorite for sure , never had a bad meal in there
That's an interesting choice. My brothers nickname since birth has been Tubby.
I will try Terminal on my next trip down there on biz. I usually stay at the Courtyard and Big River is right across the street, which is most convenient.
Hey shoe! Good to see you posting again. Work slowing down any?
Champys famous fried chicken is awesome. Best fried chicken in town and they serve 40 oz beers. Urban Stack has great burgers and the best whiskey selection in town. The Terminal is the best brewery restaurant (food is way better than Big River, beers are very comparable). If you want something different then try Taco Mamacita it's a taco place unlike any other.
crazy times my friend , no time to think over the last 4 months much less have fun hanging out with you guys ; glad to be back - how ya been ??
Pretty much the same. I have done my best to ignore most of March Madness, which I tend to do when the Vols aren't a part of it.
Boathouse on Amnicola is good.
