STIR is the perfect restaurant to sip a craft cocktail over a dozen oysters, enjoy a night out, or meet for lunch. Located in the historic Chattanooga Choo Choo complex, the restaurant is an open-air concept with a large, heated outdoor patio. We are open for lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch.

Great food starts with fresh, local ingredients. Our kitchen prepares everything from scratch, and our signature raw bar is stocked with fresh oysters and seasonal seafood.

STIR is famous for craft cocktails. We freeze and carve 300-pound blocks of artisanal ice in-house, age certain cocktails in oak barrels for richer flavors, and place others on draft for crispness and carbonation. The result: categorically elevated cocktails. Our passion for fine spirits also compels us to find and share rare bottles, many of which are extremely difficult to procure.

We welcome Chattanooga to enjoy our unmatched cocktails, fresh seafood, and classic dishes in an atmosphere of genuine hospitality.

This is our second time to dine at Stir. We were visiting the area from FL and absolutely love the ambience and vibe as well as the delicious craft cocktails! Definitely enjoyed the char grilled oysters and their special raw oysters. The fried Green Tomato appetizer is so good! The steak frites was cooked perfectly. Chicken piccata was huge and pretty good. My only feedback was the food was not hot enough when it arrived, but all tasted good. We loved how the entire wait and bar staff work as a team to execute everything. That was so nice to see.

We really enjoyed our meal at the Stir. The staff were all great and we would not hesitate to return the next time we are in Chattanooga. Be sure to reserve a table. It is a very popular place.

The food is always excellent and usually the service is very good. My waitress on this visit left empty glasses on the table when she brought a fresh drink and could have been a little more friendly. Overall Stir is one of my favorite Chattanooga restaurants.

Appetizers came out after entree. Manager seemed to not care and annoyed when he spoke with us. This was a special occasion and I had waited a year to bring my husband to this restaurant as we are from out of town and it was such a let down. Management do better!!

Keeper. This was our first-time dining at STIR, and it will not be our last. There is something for everyone on the menu. You will not be disappointed. Try the fish tacos. If you like oysters, you will have a good variety to chose from. That goes for all of you Bourbon lovers too, check out the selection. Good location, the atmosphere is lively, and service was great, thank you Rachel!

We made reservations to celebrate a graduation. We ordered the truffle Parmesan fries which were delicious. We all got filet that we ordered medium. They all came out well done. The bill with a tip was over $100 which would’ve been fine for our food being cooked correctly. The waitress was wonderful and very attentive.

The menu and the outdoor seating is what brought us in. The staff was friendly enough. The food was pretty good. The cocktails were typical. Nothing was unsatisfactory, but we weren't blown away. We might go again if we lived in town, but we're not making a special trip from Atlanta for it. I thought it was kind of funny that they brought the sangria in a wine glass with a straw.

The app was crab bisque, which was delicious. Entrees were fair to middling. Pretty plates, but the taste will not "wow" you. Dessert was pretty terrific. Service was so, so. Menus were not on the table and you were supposed to scan the bar code to read the menu on your phone???? Not too bad, but not as good as I expected.

Date w daughter while college touring. She loves fresh Poke bowls so I chose Stir. Food was excellent. I had the house burger w pimento cheese and fried green tomato and literally best burger ever. The meat is seasoned and so tender it kept falling apart. Delicious! Enjoyed the drinks as well.
