- Waited a Year For a Second VisitLadiesWhoBrunchDined on 11/9/2014This has become our traditional brunch stop on the way home from an annual weekend trip. We stumbled on it once, and the food was so good, we talked about going back all year. The food was still good, but the eggs were overcooked and our waitress was negligent at best. The manager did come to offer amends for the eggs, and everyone had a great time. Overall, still great, but if our first experience had been like that, we wouldn't have come back a year later.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great as alwaysFerchoDined on 10/25/2014Excellent food and service as always, lots of fun, great decor; it has become our family place for all occasionsSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Wonderful evening with friendsmoma5sonsDined on 10/23/2014My friend and I who share a birthday today celebrated with another friend at C &G. We had a wonderful evening...ordered and shared many small plates, sides, and cheese board because we couldn't decide what to get from the varied menu. We'd encourage others to do the same and explore all the varied, and interesting dishes served up. The desserts were perfect cappers to a memorable evening.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great night outFuninknoxvilleDined on 10/17/2014Food was outstanding, the jazz band was great and craft beer was perfect. Recommend to anyone visiting or living in Knoxville.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Knoxville at a FlashNovaVIPDined on 10/4/2014The food was great. There were four of us and we split the meals to try them all. The steak sandwich, sausage with blueberry, chicken and fish & chips were delicious. The flavors were great. If you are in a hurry this is not your restaurant or you or you can order while you wait. Our drinks took 15 minutes, another 40 for the food and 10 more for utensils. This is a place to hang with friends, have drinks and enjoy. We driving to NC and in a hurry and not able to drink the 1.5 hours we were there. We were not able to fully appreciate The Crown and the Goose. I will visit again when I'm in Knoxville. You will love them menu options. The outdoor patio area is wonderful.Special Features:
- Friday Night FindOpenTable Diner Since 2009VIPDined on 10/3/2014The food and service was outstanding. We found this restaurant on open table and will visit again next time in Knoxville.Special Features:
- Food very good, service amteurishRobertVIPDined on 10/3/2014I visit The Crown & Goose several times a year when in town for football and basketball games. The food is consistently good. On this visit, it was better than average. Everything tasty and well-prepared. The service, however, is just almost laughable. So is the management of the hostess stand. I do not understand why it is so difficult to train a staff to perform better, even if it is largely composed of college kids. Just leaves me shaking my head. As does the wine list. Still, worth a visit for a fairly enjoyable atmosphere and really good food. The bar isn't bad either.I would recommend this to a friend.
- good mealOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 10/3/2014had the bangers and mash and my son had the fish and chips. I the former was ok, but the latter was very good. decent beer selection and friendly and efficient wait staff.
- Downtown TreasureAllAboutThatFoodDined on 10/2/2014If you haven't been to The Crown and Goose,you need to go soon. It offers a feel good dining experience with unique choices in food. The outside beer garden is such a great place to kick back with some friends and drink some strongbow on draft. It has become our go to spot for a night out with friends. Service is great. Food for the foodie in you. You will try things you haven't had before and you'll never look at another restaurant the same.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Nice brunch in the old cityKnoxvilleGuyVIPDined on 9/28/2014My wife and I live near Crown and Goose and visit periodically. It's a nice location, good service, and the food is pub-like. This time, I took my mother for brunch. The wait staff was friendly and helpful and the food was brought out promptly and was nicely done. No complaints if you are in the mood for some pub grub in downtown Ktown.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Outstanding All-AroundRobertEarlKeenDined on 9/5/2014The Crown & Goose Delivers once again. Great service, great food, nice atmosphere. Our favorite place in Knoxville. The Dublin steak sandwich is good, the oysters were great, one of the specials of the day (sausage) was excellent. Drink prices are about $1 too much each.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Best Brunch in KnoxvillesamkjonesDined on 8/31/2014Met a couple of friends at Crown & Goose for the first time this past Sunday for brunch. Had a GREAT experience, and we can't wait to go back. From the spicy $3 bloody marys to the Eggs Chesapeake, not a single drop or crumb went undevoured. Our server, Kayla, was great in the beer garden-attentive, but not overbearing. We had a great time, made friends with the patrons at the next table, and made plans to make this a regular occurence.Special Features:
- Awesome spot!OpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 8/25/2014A group of friends went there and they were so accommodating and our server Ian knew everything about the menu and wine list! Will definitely go again!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great Place!kapann09Dined on 8/2/2014This place was fantastic! I found it online, my family and I have never heard of it or been there so we thought we'd try some place new. So glad we did! The atmosphere was nice, service was great, even had a nice conversation with the manager, and the food was amazing! I would highly recommend this place to anyone!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Great Venueswatsp0pDined on 7/18/2014My wife and I came for dinner as first time visitors. We were extremely pleased with the service, the food and the entire dining experience. Highly recommend.Special Features:
- Fantastic experienceFerchoDined on 7/16/2014While a live band played great music our server, Reed, suggested appetizers to die for (chips with smoked salmon), we were a party of four, we all ordered different and we all agreed it was the best food we had had in a long time: the cheese board was fantastic, fish & Chips crispy and not oily at all, tomato soup really homemade and delicious, and my charcuterie board was absolutely wonderful a great combination of meat, pork belly, andouille and duck confit with a perfectly crispy bread. Our waiter helped everyone wth accurate descriptions. Lovely experience!Special Features:
- OpenTable Diner Since 2008VIPDined on 6/4/2014We were in Knoxville for orientation with our son at UT. We chose the Crown & Goose because it was close to our hotel. What a surprise! The food was outstanding. My son had the pork shank and at age 18 he rarely raves about anything but he did about it. My wife loved the salmon. I had the duck legs confit served over risotto. A very nice evening.Special Features:
- A bit pricey!lulu42Dined on 5/28/2014After reviewing the menu and making a reservation, I was a little disappointed when I arrived to the restaurant to find essentially a bar with very little ambience. To be fair, I did not visit the beer garden outside, because my dining companions and I had a concert to attend and were limited on time. However, based on the website and the (pricey) menu, I expected something a little more elegant. The server was knowledgeable and engaging, and the cheese board did not disappoint. However, when we asked for more bread with our ($18) cheeseboard appetizer, we were told that there would be an additional charge. (We received 1 small loaf for 4 of us). I would think at $18, they could've tossed in some more bread.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- RelaxingyummyDined on 5/10/2014We invited a group of friends who all enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. The food was delicious. A couple of us sampled the house wines and thought them to be very tasty. Each of us would dine there again.Special Features:
- In dire need of updates!VinoisbestDined on 5/9/2014Old, uncomfortable seating...too open to enjoy conversation! Food is totally average but the price was in line. Service was ok. Felt like a run down shoneys. BEST PART WAS FREE PARKING! Will not be back and would never recommend.
- old city gastropubmyoutingsDined on 5/3/2014Excellent menu and beer selection. They are happy to accommodate large groups which makes it a great gathering place.Special Features:
- Post Meeting DinnerCountryBoyInTheCityDined on 4/30/2014Trekked to the Old City for dinner with a group of colleagues from Chicago and San Francisco after a multi-day business meeting. Better than expected cocktails and a great bourbon selection appeased cocktail snobs who haunt well-known mixologists bars and eased tense and tired minds. The talented jazz band was a occasionally a little loud for the fairly small space with lots of hard surfaces, but it definitely set a festive mood. Finding a quality selection of wonderful fresh oysters in Knoxville was a very pleasant surprise. We sampled both pub fare (bangers and mash, bubble and squeak, shepherds pie) and small plates (crab stuffed deviled eggs, sliders) and all was fresh, well prepared, and nicely presented. Will be back!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Crown/Goose is good findMrDaleDined on 4/25/2014Electic menu, good food. We had a number of small plates, from raw oysters to mozzarella croquettes. Everything was well prepared, with quality, fresh ingredients. Staff a bit pretentious for Knoxville, but overall a good time.Special Features:
- An off night at a favorite spotJosiahWitherspoonDined on 4/23/2014We generally love the C&G. Wednesday night the wait time for service & food was excessively long. The food was not up to usual par. There was a great jazz band. Unfortunately the volume was so high that dinner conversation was impossible. We will be back and hope for better!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Shepard pie to die for!!OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 4/4/2014The food was amazing! Shepard's Pie made with real ground lamb, served with two small lamb chops. It was incredible! The ambiance was great, the old city...well it's great! Server was not all that hot. Too snotty. But the food made up for it!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- awesome menu with fresh choices...detjktDined on 3/27/2014The pork shank is delicous "fall off the bone". The duck confit was very well done and delicous. Fresh oysters and a very good selection of beer especially high gravity imports. All in all very well done. Service was perfect.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Nice placeOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 3/21/2014Great area of Knoxville. Love the cuisine . Menu is full of great options. Food was great and so was the atmosphere. Service marginal - but we won't hold it against the place. We will be back .Special Features:
- Very disappointedOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 3/17/2014We had reservations for Saint Patrick's Day. We waited over an hour for our food. We asked to speak to the Manager and he never came to our table. I have never had an experience that the manager does not come to the table!Special Features:
- Anniversary Dinnerjust4funDined on 3/14/2014Very friendly restaurant. My husband and I were celebrating our 33rd Wedding Anniversary and wanted to try a new restaurant. A number of my friends had recommended this restaurant. It has a great English Pub atmosphere and the food was very good. I had a very generous fish and chips dinner and my husband tried their meat board. We both liked our dinners very much and are looking forward to returning and trying other dinners on their menu. The bar had a very good beer selection!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- anniversary dinnerOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 3/8/2014Our anniversary was celebrated there with a great dinner and a bottle of champagne. Our server was very patient, friendly and efficient. Great place to eat that's not too frilly.Special Features:
- Loved the food - service needs workSugars12Dined on 2/20/2014Nice décor. Love the "pub" feel. Great food. The steaks were HUGE and tasted great! But, the place was really noisy. We were there to have dinner with friends and it was tough to have much of a conversation. Service just so, so - took 3 tries to get our drinks order strait.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Love, love, love this place!!!!Prgirl10VIPDined on 2/16/2014Love, love, love this place!!!! We cannot wait to come back. Brunch on Sunday was excellent.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Nice change upChrisDined on 2/15/2014Nice atmosphere there. Service was a little slow but we sat in the side room with a group of 5 and the bartender took care of us. Everyone who tried the fish complimented on how good it was. I tried the duck which was different and a little too salty for me. I will try something else next time. Will go back again. Nice change up from wannabe restaurants in the old city.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Quintessential Gatropub!IntownfromMnDined on 2/10/2014All that you would want and expect in a GastroPub. Pleasing twists to British staples. The brussel Sprout side dish is UNBELIEVABLE! A great dinner made extra great due to our server.Special Features:
- Trouble getting our tablemarcDined on 2/1/2014In spite of having made my reservation via OpenTable, many hours in advance, we had some issues. The table the first showed us was a two-top that was positioned in the middle of the dining room, closest to the exit runway for the kitchen. We declined that table and asked for another table. Two of 4 tops were available, but they claimed that they were reserved. We had drinks at the bar, while the door staff was (we assumed) going to give us the next desirable table. We watched the two 4-top tables remain unsat, for 30 minutes. We left and I won't be back.Special Features:
- Great experiencePubCrawlerDined on 2/1/2014I had not been to Crown and Goose for a while. We went as a family and enjoyed the great food plus beer and Scotch selections. I travel in Europe a lot, and this pub brings a great European experience to Knoxville. We had a great leisurely dinner with attentive service. While they do not have a kids menu, our son ordered sliders from the small plates menu and really enjoyed them. The brazed pork shank was fabulous.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
