The food was phenomenal. The service was great. I have only been here a few times and it has never disappointed.
I enjoyed the meal very much. My wife had the catfish, which was excellent and I had a steak, which was priced well and I loved the frites. The table spacing was very tight. Seemed like you were on top of the people next to you. Food and service were top notch , so we will return!
Food was good, but most dishes were with grits, which I don't like, thus limiting my choices. Service was great, as were the drinks.
I continue to be impressed with both the food and the service that I receive at Knox Mason . as a person who lives downtown it is a pleasure to have a go to location that never disappoints.
Pre-movie dinner. Had the chip and onion dip app, and orecchiette pasta entree. Hombre cocktail was delicious. Service was great, atmosphere cozy. Overall very good. Would recommend.
Very disappointed in food. The shrimp special was simply awful and tasted like nothing. The pasta was another dog’s breakfast. No taste distinction among ingredients and thrown together. Expected so much more.
We've been wanting to visit this small restaurant for a long time, but its hours are fairly limited. When we finally did earlier this week, we were not disappointed. My husband and I both had Cornmeal Crusted Mississippi Catfish with Creamy Shelton Farm Grits and Housemade Tasso Gravy. Our friends ordered the Fresh Orecchiette Pasta and Pork Blade Steak. To accompany our beer and bourbon adult beverages, we enjoyed an appetizer made of Sweetwater Valley Cheese pimento spread served with beer bread and homemade pickle slices, the latter an interesting take on traditional bread-and-butter chips.
Locally sourced, the entrees came out hot and attractively presented. In fact, we could see the chefs busily at work, as the kitchen is open for guests to observe . Prices were very reasonable. We would go back the next time we are in Knoxville and recommend this cozy little place to diners who enjoy Southern cuisine served with a smile and a charming Southern drawl. Parking downtown was not a problem on this particular evening, as we found a metered spot across the street. It was free after 6 p.m.
I’m glad we tried it, but I probably wouldn’t go back. The food was just “ok” and I don’t think it was worth the price. I hate how close the tables are. It feels like you are dining with strangers. Not a good place to have a conversation.
I love Knox mason. Have been there several times and I have never been disappointed
High-end, southern cooking at its finest! Interesting flavors. Service was over the top.
I truly loved the food. it was delicious. I will come back over and over again. The steak was amazing . They need to sale the bone marrow butter. Yum. Magnifique!
Went for Sunday brunch and all ordered the Eggs Mason (Eggs Benedict) and an order of banana bread. The banana bread was good, but nothing that special. The Eggs Mason was also good, but again, nothing that special. The pitcher of mimosas was very good and was probably the highlight of the meal. The service was very slow, we spent most of the meal with empty coffee cups and no water. My 10 year old daughter ordered the Eggs well done and they all came out the same. We sent them back and after an eternity, they were more cooked, but still runny and she wouldn't eat. For a total of $57 with tip and after my daughter's meal was comped, I'd say it was an overpriced, but mediocre brunch.
We were so happy to return to Knox Mason - it was one of the reasons we decided to spend our short honeymoon in Knoxville. We appreciate the fresh ingredients and amazing flavors. Always a treat! Thank you!
Cool vibe, foods ok.
Good for meeting friends. Small menu
One of the best meals had in Knoxville over past 25 years...wonderful.
The food was good but but the whole experience was a little underwhelming for $110
Small portions but everything was delicious and we loved the new experience!!
Everything was well prepared and delicious, even with special orders for the chef.
Fun, cozy, modern, hip with refined Southern comfort food. Great service. Champagne and grapefruit cocktail...yum. Brunch: warm Banna bread with ricotta, corned beef over potatoes with fried egg, eggs Benedict. Will try griddle cakes next time!
Fantastic- still one of my favorite places in Knoxville!
As always just a great experience. We had the charcuterie which was plentiful and so tasty.
My steak was cooked to perfection and my hubby had the pork blade steak. The Brussels sprouts were delish! As usual we ate too much! First time we didn’t order the pork rinds!
Very disappointed overall. Most likely will not return
They rebounded! We had a few mishaps with them on several dinner disappointments but last Saturday they delivered! Good food altogether! I say try to be consistent with a small city like Knox word of mouth is far even more important!
Knox Mason is one of the best, and smallest, restaurants in Knoxville. Set in a shotgun storefront, the Blackberry Farm alum chef/owner provides some of the finest food in town from locally sourced ingredients and a menu that changes according to available quality. Casual atmosphere, excellent service, and very reasonable pricing. Reservations pretty much mandatory due to the small dining area, although a move to a larger facility is in the works for 2019. Very highly recommended.
My boyfriend and I ate here for New Years Eve dinner. I’ve been to Knox Mason before and enjoyed the food, but the five course NYE menu was absolutely stellar. I was impressed by the consistency of the dishes between tables and even more impressed that a three person kitchen was cranking out all the food so quickly and consistently. This is a fantastic little place to eat in Knoxville!
New Year's Eve dinner consisted of a 5-course meal. Everything was delicious! The wait staff and bartender were on the ball. However, we expected this special evening to be a bit more special. The evening started with a menu describing what we were about to enjoy. The courses were paired with different wines. The waitress took the menus, but we didn't care because we were sure they would deliver the course with a description of what it was and why the wine paired so well with the flavors. Nope, that didn't happen. One course served. Before everyone finished that, the next course served. At one point my daughter had three drinks in front of her. We tried to slow down the rushed service, but it didn't work. We finished that meal in 45 minutes. It was rushed, it was uncomfortable, it was very expensive. I left a private message on their Facebook page because I didn't want to leave a bad review. I never heard back from them. We love this restaurant, but we are extremely disappointed. Probably won't go back for a while.
Fantastic dining experience. Every item we tried blew us away.
Tasty cocktails, wonderful appetizer, unique salads and great entree.Our group of 4 tried the ham/potato puffs and the pimento cheese appetizers, the trout special, pork steak and springer chicken for entrees. We each had a different salad from the menu and all were very good. We didn’t have room for dessert. Service was excellent. I wish there was a little more room in the building- seating was a little too close with the adjoining tables. But we had a lovely meal and all around experience.
Great food in a laid back atmosphere. Staff was attentive but not too in-your-face. Great time and would stop in again if in Knoxville. Highly recommend.
Knox Mason is consistently serves the best dinner in downtown Knoxville. Food is always perfectly prepared, cocktails are excellent, service is impeccable, and the manager always checks to make certain all is as expected.
It is a small, quirky place, with outstanding food and service, and darn good cocktails. The Smoked Springer Mountain Chicken Breast is one of the best dishes we have ever had anywhere, at any price. I wish we lived closer, but if you live nearby, run don't walk. Just make a res first.
Dinner with our son a girlfriend. He has been wanting to come. Small restaurant but lovely dinner. We were all very happy with our entrees. Will be going back!
Excellent food with local ingredients. Save room for dessert it is a great way to finish
Third time here, second for the brunch. Outstanding choices - wonderful flavors - great wait staff. Very unpretentious. IF you haven't eaten here , but it on your list. Now.
Knox Mason never fails to delight. Everything is perfectly prepared, the nightly fish special is usually my choice and I am never disappointed. Service is beyond reproach; the servers are friendly and knowledgeable. Manager always stops to check on our meal. Great bartender also.
Knox mason’s menu had a great selection, and everything we tried was very good. I’d go back just for the pimento cheese appetizer with beer bread the awesome house-made pickles!
Both the vegetable panzanella and smoked chicken entrees were delicious, with generous but not overwhelming portions.
As this was my first visit, I wasn’t sure what to expect for the ambience - it wasn’t quite as intimate as I’d expected for a date night, but seems like a fun place to go with a bit larger group. But I’d definitely go back for the food, especially for a dinner with friends or family.
Our service was great. Our food was fantastic. Overall, it was a wonderful experience.
Great food! Especially filet. We were seated right away and service was great. It’s very small but quaint, only complaint , tables very close together. Derby pie great dessert to share!
This is an average restaurant. I started with tater tots, which were a tad overcooked. The squash casserole and apple salad were excellent. Service was average but not especially friendly (unusual for a Southern place).
Food was fabulous! Reasonably priced It is a small place
