My wife and I had an outstanding dinner date. Our temperature was taken before entering and the staff seated us apart from other guests.
My wife had the Chilean sea bass and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was the best she has ever had. I had the Kansas City strip and found it tender and delicious.
The meal, service, and experience was outstanding. Looking forward to our next dining experience at Conners.

Unusually slow to get seated....server seemed stretched and really leaned on the help that is usually provided by teammates......Chicken Picatta had too much salt seasoning for my taste......management wasn’t as interactive as usual. So overall, today’s visit was not reflective of the A-game service level that one can expect at Connors.

My wife and I have been frequenting Connor's for about 15 years. It's our default restaurant for special evenings, celebrations, anniversaries, birthday's and when we have had our Mercedes-Benz Club of America dinners. We have always, but always, enjoyed a perfect meal with the best service and wonderful ambiance. We can always rely on Connor's to brighten any occasion and to mellow any of the world's rougher edges. The best food and beverage, the best servers, cooks and cocktail-makers have been employed for all the years we have been fortunate to call Connor's our favorite eatery.

I’m here for work and had a friend in town for the weekend. We found this place by accident searching online for something else and decided to make it our last meal together before she left and I started work again.

First, for those concerned about dining out during COVID-19, don’t be. They provide sanitizer and check your temperature before entering.

I was pleasantly pleased that sides are included in most of their entrees without an upcharge or additional fee. Surprising even more was having the choice to switch out for other side dishes.

I ordered the 6oz filet mignon MR, a half dozen oysters, and the deviled eggs. All were 6-star premium. Yes. 6-star.

The filet was juicy and cooked to delicate, flavorful perfection. The oysters fresh, sweet and buttery. The deviled eggs had the best tasting bacon I’ve had in a while.

For my sides I had a wedge salad and creamy spinach. It cost an extra couple dollars but I wanted it. Now, I’m not sure if I loved the creamy spinach... but it wasn’t necessarily displeasing. It just tasted like spinach and artichoke dip. I’m not sure if that’s what creamy spinach is supposed to taste like. 🤷🏾‍♀️

Moscato was my drink of choice. I would normally get a Red. This night I wanted sweet. I can’t remember the name of the wine (it was the second offering of Moscatos on the menu) but it was crisp and smoothly sweet. Not too sweet. Balanced really.

My waitress was pleasant and very attentive. Her service style was accommodating and didn’t disturb me and my friend’s bubbly random banter.

I enjoyed having the manager and other service members check on us. I felt appreciated, especially given the changes of the pandemic.

I’ll leave one last thought—I haven’t been out much because of the pandemic. I’ve largely remained sheltered in place. That said, I’m glad that I decided to dine in at Conners tonight. I’ll likely resume my routine but if I decide I need another steak (in Knoxville) Conners will be first on my list.
