    Delicious new menu offerings. Must have Bison sliders and Goat pizza right out of the wood fired oven. Mmmm

    Everything was great except the tables were too low. They are meant more for lounging than eating. It was rainy so we couldn’t experience the rooftop deck.

    We were hosting family from out of town, and had a a confirmed brunch reservation for 8 but the restaurant was closed when we arrived. No sign, no explanation. Ended up having to scramble to find another restaurant that could seat 8 at peak brunch time with no notice. Very disappointing.

    Service was entirely lacking. Perhaps we caught them on a bad staffing day but basic knowledge of submitting orders for drinks and food was lacking and we were there way too long (~ 2 hours) for a sub-par meal. Okra appetizer was tasty, but tiny. Tater tots were good. Teriyaki lettuce cup was not. We won't return.

    Mason made our entire experience AMAZING. From his menu knowledge to his attentiveness, he made sure we were taken care of. Even making a drink for me himself to be sure it came in a timely manner (as i asked). The food was yummy too. We will definitely be back!!

    We made reservation for our out of town visitors. We were excited to be able to find a place that accommodated our party of 6. When we arrived for our 7:30 reservation we were told they were out of burgers and that tang food would be an hour wait and at least 30 mins of a wait for a drink. The host asked if we wanted to sit outside or in, when we said we would like to sit outside we were told it would be an hour wait for us to be seated outside. So we said inside would be fine, he then walked us to a 4 person table and told us he would bring us another chair. He never returned. After waiting about 5 mins just standing in the middle of the “restaurant” we decided to find another place. Terrible experience and just really embarrassing to experience with out of town guests.

    Restaurant is located inside the Hilton which I didn't realize & they don't validate parking. It was about 27 degrees outside the day we visited and we froze because they have to keep the main door (to the outside) open at all times. The pizza was the highlight but overall not a great experience.

    I would recommend the place only for the pizza, in the entrees there is a specific salad that is literally a whole lettuce cut in half with only a few small pieces of bacon and some vegetables. Depressing dish, also expensive for just lettuce.

    High Rail sits atop the historic Chattanoogan Hotel, and offers dynamic views of both the city and Lookout Mountain. Recline on the open rooftop seating area, warming yourself by the fire pit, and relish a beautiful sunset if you time it right. Indoor seating and a cozy bar both remain available as well. The food proved well prepared, and we savored the loaded fries appetizer then brisket tacos and a pizza with delicious goat cheese. The service was friendly if slow, so the overall experience was most positive.

    I do not fault the unfortunate staff working this night. They were understaffed and not able to serve the influx of what appeared to be travel sports guests. We did not stay as they were not prepared for our reservation and were clearly overwhelmed with the mismatch of staff and guests.

    Somewhat breezy, cool but not cold evening with a small crowd, very attentive wait staff, and an excellent setting. Open air with a fire pit and a view. We had the Dougie Pizza with a couple of locally brewed Lager's. Pizza was interesting with a balsamic touch, quite tasty! A good evening before a TSSAA Div 2AA football game!

    We waited for over an hour on our food. My husband ask for a tea to drink and when they brought the food an hr later he still had not received his drink. Took over 15 mins to get a box and the check.

    It’s was cool overall, food was well seasoned and you get a lot for the price. Drinks were pretty good. There weren’t many other people there and service was really slow. Our waitress was nice but she seemed tired and was not as responsive as she could have been considering we were her only table.

    Seems disorganized. Sat at a table outside by the fire, one person asked for our drinks another person brought them, friend ordered gluten free bun or no bun because she has celiac disease, came with regular bun, server said oh oops I forgot.... Mimosas are 8 dollars which seems high when three restaurants (one really nice) down the road have 1-3 dollar ones, even if you’re using nicer OJ use cheap champagne. I feel like it was dead also. For being such a cool outside spot it wasn’t even half full and I think the expensive brunch drinks are the cause. People want to stay and hang but for for 16 bucks for two mimosas. I’ve given this place three shots, the first time my food was ice cold, I think I may now out for a while. Needs some fine tuning for sure. I want to like this place I really do but it needs work.

    The food was good but was served almost cold. We got the fries which were amazing and the spinach dip. The only issue I had was that we reserved a spot by a fire pit but it was given to someone else that had not (they only had one working fire pit). The fire pit we sat at wasn’t working lol I guess I should’ve requested a working fire pit smh Otherwise, the vibe was pretty cool and chill. I will def be back. Maybe hopefully this time we will have a working fire pit.

    Our family went there while visiting Chattanooga and the service was worst I’ve had at a “nice” restaurant in a very long time. The food was not very good, and was not hot, as it probably sat under a heat lamp or on a counter for a while. We ordered chips and queso to start bc we were so hungry, but, I think he put it in all at same time and just brought the main course slightly after the appetizer. The queso was barely edible, as it was not at all hot, but our service was MIA. I had to go track down someone inside the restaurant every time we needed anything. Won’t be back.
