    We sat down at a dirty table that wasn’t bussed/cleared for at least 15-20 minutes. Our waitress disappeared multiple times and rarely checked on us. (We didn’t see her waiting on other tables at those times either, so we’re not sure what she was doing.) It took forever to get our food—which was below average—and it was only after I pointed out to another waitress that I believed our food had been sitting under the heatlamp for an extended period of time (which it had been). The “rooftop” is 2 stories up so not much of a view. If you’re in Chattanooga for a short stay, I would venture out and find another restaurant.

    Our experience was ok. It was nice to eat outside and our server did a good job of taking care of us, despite how much was going on. We tried the Fire and Ice salad but it was inedible since it was too spicy. My husband’s burger was fine but his fries were overcooked and so was my Farm to Fig pizza. About halfway through our meal it became apparent that a wedding had ended at the hotel. They informally moved their festivities to the rooftop at High Rail which made for too many people in the outdoor space. Not sure how often the hotel experiences things like this. It was a fun “party” atmosphere for the wedding guests, but not enjoyable for those of us trying to have a more relaxed dinner experience.

    Service was outstanding. I took a girlfriend for her birthday. We sat inside as there was a threat for rain. The food was really tasty and timing was great. Good value for the quality. The only little thing I would say was inside chairs at the tables needed to be wiped off. And paper menus are fine, but we were given some with food grease and stains.

    Food portions were small—especially for what we paid for it. Beverages were good—worth the price. New menu meant that some pictures online were no longer available which was frustrating. Overall experience was really good for our bachelorette trip.

    It was ok. The rooftop was nice but not the rooftop we were expecting. It’s on the second floor over looking the courtyard of the hotel. The food was good but nothing special. Very limited menu. Service was good. It’s a neat place but doubt we’ll go back but also happy we went to try it. If you’re staying at the hotel, it’s worth going to. But if not staying there, I don’t think it’s worth a special trip.

    Food was great Ashton our server was fantastic. However the hostess flung menus and told us to sit where we wanted but sat other customers. This is the first person you meet and she sets the tone for your stay. May want to change out your hostess in my opinion. But the good was great

    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.

    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!

    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.
