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

    The food is always great. we had a reservation for 5:15. we arrived early at 4:30 because we arrived in town earlier than anticipated. There was no one waiting and at least 8 or more empty tables. I told the girl we would like a booth. The girl checking me in said she would text me at 5:15. For 45 minutes we waited only to be seated in the same booth that had been empty the entire 45 minute wait. Maybe they were short handed or she just felt she could only seat us at our reservation time but, having 2 booths and several other tables empty we didn't feel like customer satisfaction was her goal. After being seated everything else was perfect.

    What are you supposed to say when a waiter who is serving an adjacent table turns to you to ask how the meal you are starting on is? I told the truth (overcooked and dry), and the waiter acted the rest of the meal as though we were poison. Brought the check without asking if we wanted anything else. When I asked for a cognac, he asked "up or on the rocks?", and when I said "in a snifter" he said "we don't have that.

    This place was not what we expected. The drinks were supposed to be their strong point, but they were a little strange and not well balanced. The ginger syrup was way too strong and was in so many things. The food was all over the place. Our oysters were great, and the chef’s board was very good, but the mains were not as great. My husband’s filet was ok, though the broccolini was overcooked. My crispy mahi bowl was terrible. The pieces were super heavily breaded and very dry. The whole dish - including the sushi rice - was also extremely fishy. Very disappointing.

    Great potential here. Our issue was with some bill logistics. We were served the wrong item, which normally wouldn't have been too bad since we just returned it.. but then we were charged twice for a different item plus the item we never ordered and promptly returned. The refund has yet to be adjusted but we were told to watch for an email..

    Maya & Nate are awesome servers! Actually, all of the staff at Stir are all so great and seem to work really well together. As usual, our food was wonderful; we love the Stir Chopped Salad as well as the Chicken Piccata...over Mac n cheese! We do wish that there were more options for dessert...cream brûlée please! Our only complaint is the Station Street parking lot; beware that parking tickets are $40! Yikes! Thanks for another wonderful dining experience!

    We had reserved a table and requested to be seated in the bar area. However, we were placed in a small, brightly lit back room. What a disappointment. We asked the server if the lights could be dimmed, but they never were and the blaring overhead lights were annoying and ruined the ambience. The service was too slow and drinks took forever. We have eaten here on several other occasions and never had such a bad experience. The food was good, at least.

    We made reservations and requested a booth. This was for a very special occasion. We arrived 5 min early and were told by the hostess that there were no booth’s available because the person who came in right before us who did not have a reservation was given the last booth. Extremely disappointed as this ruined what was supposed to be a romantic dinner.

    The place is well decorated and although they were crowded the noise levels were great. The oyster preparer seemed a little overwhelmed and was being assisted by one of the managers. The oysters weren't properly shucked and remained attached to the shell. We had a mix of premium oysters, and one of the selections was bad and tasted like sewage, that made it difficult to enjoy the rest. We also had the Tuna Poke Bowl and the Cheeseburger Egg Rolls. The Poke was delicious but the amount of actual tuna in it was a joke. The Egg Rolls were delicious. There are many things on this menu that would bring me back. Personally I will chalk it up to an off night. The servers were abundant and popping, but perhaps a little overwhelmed with the full crowd, which was amazing being a Wednesday night. They didn't seem to be running at peak performance and perhaps something was little off that night.

    We frequent Stir quite often, mostly at Brunch, but we had friends from Dalton Georgia joining us for dinner and they had never been to Stir. Everything was great, our waitress was Noel and was extremely helpful and prompt. Our friends had the Grilled Salmon and Mac N Cheese Lobster/Scallops and they were not disappointed. My only complaint was I paid for parking using the familiar app for Park Mobile and on our return our friends had a $40 ticket on their vehicle (they picked us up downtown) I grabbed the ticket and will pay, but very disappointed in the parking schematics of the area. The bar also ran out of our favorite cocktail the Barrel age Lemon Drop so this was also disappointing. We will not let this affect our future visits, but did put a downer on the evening.
