Northshore Brasserie is a family owned, full-service restaurant and bar serving French Belgian cuisine in a relaxed and sophisticated atmosphere. Over the last decade, we have become a Knoxville favorite known for hearty delicious food, and outstanding service. For dinner, we specialize in Brasserie classics, such as: steak frites, mussels, roast chicken, fresh seafood, and handmade pastas. We also take advantage of local produce and meats to create in season specials. Our bar has a vibrant, unpretentious atmosphere where locals and out-of-towners gather to enjoy craft cocktails, Belgian beers, and a selection of wines from around the world.

We offer a healthy, fast, and affordable lunch where our buffet (Mon-Fri) provides daily chef-inspired creations. You can also order soups, salads, and sandwiches from the menu.

A great meal. Not rushed and attentive service. The trout was still swimming in oil. Otherwise all was wonderful!

They took amazing care of me and my girlfriend on Valentine's day, and even put some roses on our table. My girlfriend took one home, and it's in a vase now as a memory of our wonderful stay.
The ambience would have been much better if the rows of tables weren't so close together, we could constantly hear what the couple's on either side of us were saying, and they could hear what we were talking about.
Overall a great time, though.

The trout was the best I have eaten and the mussels never disappoint! Loved the topping on the creme brûlée - overall an outstanding meal despite how noisy the restaurant is.

Loved our server. He was amazing. Love the staff and atmosphere too. Food was very good, but duck was better a year ago. It's a great restaurant to go to for a special occasion cause it is a bit pricey.

Wonderful food, great service. My wife had the Duck Duo, I had the braised Trout. We paired these with Two wines by the glass from their extensive selection. We started sharing the brasserie salad and ended with the Profiteroles. It was a very nice meal, great service and nice ambiance.

I frequent the brasserie,however, it was my sisters first time and she greatly enjoyed the experience. The service was wonderful as always and the food a delight. They brought us a birthday dessert which was a lovely surprise. A small note, which was not a big deal, was that our steaks got mixed up when delivered to the table. I had ordered a medium rare and she had gotten a medium. She cut into her steak and had a few bites before I noticed her steak was much more rare than medium and she did not want to make a fuss. I then cut into my steak and noticed they had just gotten mixed up. No big deal just something to maybe pay attention to. Always a pleasure.

As usual we had another lovely evening at the Brasserie. Our meal was great, and the service was attentive and friendly. The steaks were cooked to perfection, my salmon was so yummy, and the fries are the best! It is our favorite place!

Northshore Brasserie is consistently exceptional. I love their Mussels in Pernod, our friend had a steak and said it was delicious, the crab cake appetizer was large enough for a light meal and my husband's short ribs were perfection. We have also dined there for lunch and enjoyed their salad and lighter fare offerings. We want to support local restaurants-give it a try. You won't be disappointed.

AMAZING steak frites with a great custom mixed drink (🍸Lyons Bend), but the roasted root vegetables were unevenly cooked (some still raw), and the greens for the spinach salad were a bit wilted. Perfect friendly and prompt service though and comfortable, fun setting!

We took my husband’s mother, her husband and our two sons out for a birthday dinner celebration. I was a little concerned that it might not be suitable for children, but was quickly put at ease as we were seated. There were other older kids eating as well... Our server was Shamos (I hope I spelled it correctly) who was on-point and amazing. His timing was perfect, he was friendly yet professional and he even brought the dessert out complete with a lit birthday candle..all without us asking for it! The dinner was delicious! Oh.. and they offer a kids menu, but only if you ask your server because it’s not printed. I ordered and highly recommend the half chicken with fig reduction and brussel sprouts! I can’t explain how amazingly delicious it was, but can tell you that it’s made it into a couple of my dreams since our dinner outing. Overall, the experience for our family was wonderful. The food, service and drinks were without any complaints. The value for your money is there with the food quality and precisioned execution in each dish. DE-licious!!

Escargot were prepared in a way we have not had before but are now a new favorite. We then share several appetizers and a bottle white Bordeaux, all perfect.

We hadn’t been there since the expansion which has made it very open. The noise from the bar was a little loud when we arrived but quieted down shortly thereafter.

Tim was our server. He is extraordinarily knowledgeable and helpful and the best we’ve had in quite a while. He was attentive when required but not a nuisance as some servers can be when trying too hard. Very enjoyable evening!

We had a great time and able to visit even though the noice was loud in the less than full restaurant. We were eating early to get to football game. The service was slower than I would have expected with a small crowd and time of day.

We had a reservation that I had to move back about three times, which was surprisingly easy on a Saturday night. The food was delicious- we had lamb and duck. The duck could have been more orange flavored. The service was fantastic!! It was a bit noisy. Overall, we had an excellent experience and I highly recommend.
