    In the downtown/southside area, STIR is good, as is Public House. Alleia is great. On the Northshore, Primo and Tremont Tavern are the favorites. I have a soft spot for the Boathouse on the river, too.

    I ate at Bridgeman's a few weeks ago for the first time and was pleasantly surprised.

    Is there a good brewery or drinking spot with outdoor seating?

    Yes. There are a lot of places. Depends on the weather and whether or not you want food. A lot of places have enclosed decks/patios for the winter which I am not sure is any better than being indoors.

    Wanderlinger plug incoming

    State of confusion has a great outdoor space but that's it as far as that place goes

    Naked river prob has best outdoor space for a brewery

    Basecamp is a cool spot if not freezing.....welp forecast calls for snow so prob not that

    This is for the end of the month. Could still very likely be cold though.

    Outside of the few mentioned already, Hair of the Dog has a heated deck and a good beer selection, however they are also one of the few remaining smoking bars in town. The new Heaven & Ale (local brewery) spot on Main St. has an outdoor area as well. Also, there is a relatively new distillery in the Choo Choo called Gate 11 that makes some pretty good liquor and mixed drinks, and with Station Street being open container you can get them and wander around or chill at some of the outside tables they have set up.

    Never been to the actual restaurant but had one from their truck at the market. Good hotdogs but not life changing

    Stir and Rembrandt’s Coffee House are go to when visiting Chattanooga.

    Stir has a spicy tuna sandwich with a sriracha infused runny egg, and the same oysters that get sent to Nashville, but cheaper

    Rembrandt’s has the best eclair I’ve ever had in my life.

    If visiting it’s the Bluff View Inn or an Airbnb near Point Park/Lookout Mountain.

    this town is so much cheaper and way nicer than Nashville

    I haven’t eaten at Il Primo in a minute. My wife loved the rigatoni and I loved the pork shoulder. I checked the menu and looks like the pork shoulder is no longer served?

    Saw a friend today(has bartended all over Downtown) thatv is running Zaya's bar program. Said they had 85 reservations Sunday night so thats good. He said the food is great and you get a good bit for the seemingly high $.

    Going to be in town for a quick work meeting tomorrow around lunch time in Eastridge. Anywhere good to grab lunch around there? I’ll also be headed back west on the way out of town, so can hit downtown, etc.

    Hard to beat. Throw in some nice seasoned tots and you got a storm brewing.

    There’s a nice Thai place just north of I-24 (more brainerd than east ridge but close enough) before the split called Sweet Basil that the wife and I really love. It’s authentic and great people.

    Food is good. Employee turnover the past year has sucked. Hope you enjoyed. I grew up a 30 sec walk from there and live 5 minute drive so there a ton.

    Low-key one of the coolest things about this board. You know you can a solid review on stuff to do in a foreign city.
