Thanks for the correction. The Terminal...near the train. I had to drive home last time I was there so I passed on the beer, but if they brew as good as they cook, then it is a must. We have a mellow mushroom here in Columbia and it is just OK. I usually try and avoid the chains when I'm out of town.
While their brews are great, they've gotten too popular and their brewery is operating at capacity. They're having to force everything through as quickly as they can and everything I've had in recent weeks has been cloudy and a bit green. Hopefully they'll figure out a solution soon --be it expanding or adding some craft brews to their taps and running specials on the crafts to try to take a load off.
The best beers to be had in Chattanooga are from the local homebrewers. ;-)
In my opinion, Treemont Tavern had one of the best burgers in this town. The boathouse is a nice place for lunch and has a good simple menu. Hair of the dog makes a pretty good reuben, but you have to put up with a smoky atmosphere. EZ bistro is in a league of it's own, in terms of both price and fanciness, but the food is of a better quality than what you'll find pretty much anywhere else.
Hands down one of my favorites is Tony's Pasta in the art district. One being, the food is fantastic. Have yet to have a single thing I did thing was amazing much less not taste good. For the second, it is right a across the way from the best little cafe called Rembrant's. Grab dinner at Tony's then walked right over to Rembrant's for coffee, conversation, and desert. Its a guaranteed great date line up.
