Southern

The newest addition to the growing Knoxville downtown restaurant landscape, Knox Mason marries elements of traditional Southern cuisine with a vibrant, contemporary aesthetic. Chef/Owner and Knoxville native Matt Gallaher's seasonal menus draw from his 20+ years of cooking experiences as Sous Chef at Blackberry Farm, cooking for rock stars around the Globe and, most recently as Tennessee's Executive Chef for Governor Haslam in Nashville.

Working closely with Southern farms and artisans, familiar dishes are recast to reflect the 21st century. And the full-service bar includes the best domestic, craft and micro-brews, wines from Tennessee and around the world alongside seasonal cocktails.

We offer dinner service Wednesday - Sunday from 5pm - 10pm Nightly.

We invite you to stop by and try our original cuisine inspired by the South we love.

The rooftop was great but only order wine or beer upstairs as the mixed drinks were all ridiculously weak. (My 80 year old mother who has 5 drinks a year had to ask for more vodka in her vodka tonic.)

This is our second time eating here. The food is average for the price. I had the gumbo and the portion is on the smaller side and was bland. My husband likes the shrimp and grits. Our waitress was friendly but the service was slow. Not sure if we’ll go back as the food is just ok.

My husband’s trout was “dry & uneventful.” My pork blade steak had a great flavor but was more fat than meat. Our son’s shrimp & grits were great, and his girlfriend’s smash burger with pimento cheese & fries were very good.

Steaks not as flavorful as in past and some overdone. Promised to make fresh coffee but served cold cup instead. Service good and deserts delicious along with appetizers.

It had charm and unique flavors you couldn’t get anywhere else. In the hotel, it’s noisy, steak was tough, portions are small, and it’s over priced. So sad. We won’t be back.

He seemed to magically appear just at the right time. He was very knowledgeable about the food and beverages. Southern cuisine with a twist. Balcony seating was special if you are a people watcher.

We had the pork rinds, pimento cheese dip, the 1/2 roasted chicken with mashed potatoes, a cheeseburger, Philly cheesesteak, and shrimp and grits. The menu is on the smaller side so we tried a good majority of their offerings. There were four of us, the pimento cheese came out with 3 small breads. The cheese itself was as very mild no pimento flavor. The 1/2 chicken was the size of a Cornish game hen not a regular size chicken very misleading and not a good value at all. Shrimp & grits is one of my favorite dishes, I order it wherever it’s offered and this had to have been the worst shrimp and grits I’ve had!!! The shrimp were tiny little frozen shrimp not the gulf shrimp you usually get in the south. The grits were bland and the stock they pour over had zero flavor. The two sandwiches were average. The only stand out were the pork rinds. We won’t be back.

We had run out of drinks and it took a while for the server to notice/come back. It also took her a few minutes to come back after the food came out to see if we needed anything, which we happened to. That being said, the food was delicious and the drinks were tasty. We were seated outside on the balcony overlooking Gay St, which was nice, but there was a large party on the balcony a table over that was being very loud. We could hardly hear each other and I realize that’s not the restaurant’s fault but boisterous diners do affect the ambience and vibe for other guests. It might be a good idea to have a sign or something on the app when people make reservations asking them to keep their noise under a certain level.

When Knox Mason was a small business on the 100 Block of Gay St, the was all locally sourced, there was care to details, the menu was a reduced menu but for good reason. The food today was just not good. The menu choice is poor and limited. It’s not reflecting the region. Given the other great restaurants in Knoxville, this place needs to up its game. I will not be returning - why would or should I when I have so many better options. Sorry knox. You need to do better.

Waiter was great in getting us drinks before it ended. Shrimp and grits were fantastic, however the online menu is out of date and says that there is a delicious Mac n cheese side on the menu when there isn’t. Would have loved to try it. Overall fantastic dining experience.
