Amazing service! Knowledgeable staff.
We are from Florida but have UT season tickets. Owed our own restaurant for 8 yeats. Have eaten at Knox Mason twice. Bring different people each time. Nothing else to say but awesome!!! Amazing!!! Can’t wait for football season next year just to eat here again!
Great adult family dinner night - excellent selections, knowledgeable server ( I am gluten free), cozy environment. No complaints at all
Very quaint restaurant right on Gay Street. Great place to take a date, nice and quiet. The food was excellent, you could tell that the chef he’s a tension to every detail in the plate. Pork steak was excellent, and the catfish was very good as well. If they have the panna cotta for desert you don’t want to miss it
We were in town visiting from New York, NY and everything we ate was exquisite! Nathan, our server, took the best care of us. Knox Mason knocked our socks off—so very happy we got the chance to dine here in Knoxville.
Sunday Brunch was wonderful. All local sourced and fresh ingredients. Homemade banana bread with buttermilk cheese, eggs & cured ham on house baked English muffin. And the best Bloody Mary around. Next time we have to come in for dinner.
Excellent experience. Went before the opera at Tennessee Theatre. Menu starters delicious. Both had the past entree since we were running a half marathon the next miming. Simply delicious. Thanks Knox Mason.
we just love this restaurant! always fresh, seasonal menus with wonderful options!
Good place to go for small plates but would not recommend for main entrees. My wife and I both ordered the pork. It was very fatty. My wife sent hers back and just got an appetizer. Mine was a little better cut but was still very fatty and a lot of it was not pleasant to eat.
Overpriced for amount of food you get. Was also annoyed that my wife and I were celebrating our anniversary and it was just us and another couple several tables down in the entire restaurant. A party of 4 came in and they sat them right next to us! It was so awkward. Practically sitting together like a party of 6 because the tables are so close.
This likely our last time going here.
Excellent!!! Ask for Erica and Jeremy at the bar! Food was divine, especially the filet and brussel sprouts caesar salad.
We enjoyed our evening at Knox Mason very much! The food was absolutely wonderful and the service was attentive & friendly. The only negative we experienced was the noise level was quite loud, and it made conversation for our 6 person group difficult. Overall, it was a lovely meal.
One of our favorite places to eat. It’s worth the trip downtown!
We were looking for a place with decent vegetarian options. This did very well.
It was magnificent!!! Chef Warren wove the magic food wand and everything was delicious! Nathan took excellent care of us and the experience was one of the best!!
The food was very good and well presented. My wife and I both enjoyed our drinks, appetizer, meals, and dessert. If the meal alone defined the experience, we’d be likely to return to Knox Mason. However, the service was sub-par for the cost of the restaurant. We visited to celebrate our wedding anniversary and had high hopes for a romantic meal. The table next to us was also celebrating their anniversary and multiple servers and staff stopped by their table to congratulate them. While ours not being acknowledged isn’t a legitimate gripe, watching the table beside us receive so many visits and so much attention was frustrating when we saw our server 3 times in our two hour dinner. Likewise, the staff had a habit of walking between the narrowly spaced tables to address the neighbors, resulting in a few near misses of our table (and me) when they were stepping into the space between the tables. Ultimately, the food was good, the atmosphere was intrusive, and the service was less than stellar. If there wasn’t a plethora of good restaurants nearby this experience would have been annoying, but we might have returned. Instead, we’d rather spend our time at the other places within walking distance.
The only reason for me not to have given this 5 stars was my fault - I was not in the restaurant for dinner. But the mimosa carafe was both good and a grate deal. The catfish and grits were some of the best I have ever had. The banana bread was a perfect way to start
For sure one of the finest local ingredient eateries in KnoxVegas. Don’t forget to have the pork rinds and deviled eggs,, great way to start the meal over some ginger food..
Amazing food and atmosphere! Great prices for the caliber of food that is served.
Great experience at Knox Mason! Loved the different take on some traditional southern foods. The service was impeccable and loved the cocktails! Will definitely be back when I'm next in town.
the server we had was incredible he was so friendly informative and helpful! The food was unbelievably good I wish we could eat there again and again
Outstanding. The appetizers were amazing !!!
We loved this place! Would come back for sure next time we are in town. They accommodated us with a very large party despite it being a rather small venue. Food was superb! Order the pork rinds.
We have been to Knox Mason several times, and it has been really good every time. They have an interesting and creative menu. Great wait staff!
Restaurant is very pretty. Food was just OK. Service was great.
We loved this place! Will return.
I’ve been interested in Knox Mason for years and was so excited to finally go! We went for a date night on First Friday, I knew the restaurant was small/intimate but my date was a little weirded out by how crammed everyone was into the space. Especially when you combined a larger, loud crowd two tables down—it was a bit much. Thankfully the food was phenomenal, the filet was very petite but SO flavorful and delicious! The pork steak was also excellent and Pork rinds were another standout! Mac n cheese was average. The service was OK, not very detail-oriented: I ordered a glass of wine when our appetizers were brought and and they didn’t get it to me until after the entrees were out; they told my date they would bring out a steak knife but never did (thankfully the filet was tender enough that the butter knife worked fine). The price point was great for the quality of food—a cocktail, a glass of wine, two appetizers, two entrees, and a side for just under $100.
Great presentation and service, menu sourced from local and sustainable providers, and each course is prepared with attention to detail!
We were meeting two friends passing through town. One of them has had gastric surgery, and has a very limited eating ability, but because they make everything fresh, they were able to accommodate her needs. A good time was had by all.
Mind you, we all miss Papa Harald.
This place really blew us away. We will definitely return to try more of the menu. From the appetizer, to the drinks, to the main course and dessert; it was all absolutely fantastic.
The menu is Southern influenced, with a creativity that results in flavors that are decidedly unique. I highly recommend the cat fish, and the pork blade steak. For dessert, we had a grapefruit crème brûlée that wasn't on the menu, that I will remember for years to come.
The food was fresh and delicious! The service was just right. We will definitely be back!
loved the atmosphere of the restaurant and the food was outstanding. The filet was delicious and the vegetables that accompanied were fresh and so tasty. Highly recommend the fried green tomato and shrimp appetizer.
We had an excellent time at Knox Mason! The happy hour (before 6:30pm) drink menu was a pleasant surprise (and incredibly tasty, too) and everything tasted AMAZING. We are excited to come back!
I enjoyed the pork rinds! How can you not? The service was great, and the entrees were good. My friend got a few small plates and seemed to enjoy all of them, especially the Shrimp. I had the burger special. It was tasty and cooked well, but I always have issues when the burgers are so large and I can’t eat it in a normal bite. The food was solid, and I would go back.
I came with some friends for my birthday and we had an amazing time. They started us off with complimentary Cava, which was a sweet way to acknowledge my birthday! The service was great. All of our cocktails, starters, and entrees were delicious. One of my friends just got back from New York City and he said that meal was better than anything he ate while he was up there. I highly recommend!
My daughter gave us a gift certificate to Knox Mason and we saved it for a special occasion. The service was very good....our group enjoyed steak, fried okra, oyster sandwich, and catfish dinner. It was not very crowded since we dined on a Tuesday evening. We were promptly seated at the back table near the kitchen which was VERY warm and a bit noisy. (even though there were lots of vacant tables closer to the front)
It was so warm that we had to use our menus as fans...that's a shame because the food was delicious and being that hot distracted from our overall dining experience.
Made reservations due to UT move in weekend. My husband and I arrived 10 mins early and were seated right away. Each of us had one of the signature cocktails - both refreshing and great tasting. Our son and friend arrived 15 mins after the reservation time but the waiter never made us feel bad about it. We had the deviled eggs which everyone loved. Each of us had a different plate, one the catfish, one the pasta, one the steak and one the fried green tomato app. We also got the mac and cheese. Every single one of us enjoyed our meal. Suggestion on attire - casual dressy -- if that makes sense. Not tennis shoes/shorts...
Very creative Chef ! Our dinner was fabulous and enjoyed the ambience !
It was wonderful! Farm to table ! Perfect
Excellent overall. Would highly recommend the place.
