St. John's is Chattanooga's premier fine-dining restaurant, featuring an elaborate and elegant menu of succulent steaks, fantastic fish filets, and wonderful pork, chicken, and duck dishes. The environment is the epitome of class, with gorgeous white marble floors and large hanging lampshades suspended from the high ceiling. The food from master chef, Daniel Lindley, goes head-to-head with the best I've had in even the bigger cities of our country.
For a more casual evening, step next door to the Meeting Place for smaller plates an intimate atmosphere. The downstairs of this interior is lined with large mirrors and beautiful cherub paintings on the walls. The upstairs features a candlelit bar and lounge area with sofas. Though a little less pricey than St. John's, the Meeting Place still delivers with outstanding food and drink. On weekdays, they even offer a great happy hour from 5:00-7:00 pm, with $5 craft cocktails, $4 craft beers, and $6 small plates. Phone: (423) 266-4400
