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.

Megan went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and she was very knowledgeable. The service is hands down one of the best I have see in a while. The food was to die for. The drinks (oh man they were fabulous). The atmosphere was amazing and friendly. Will definitely be going back again!!! Thank you for everything Megan!!!

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.

The food made my wife sick. It was very loud in there. They made us wait till our exact reservation time then we got sat at a table that was open the whole time we were sitting for 20 minutes.

We made reservations for outdoor dining. We ended up at a table close to the front door. The music was playing in a speaking right above our table. Unfortunately, my husband is hard of hearing so he had difficulty hearing the conversation with our party. It was loud, but we didn’t want to ask them to lower the volume because it would have impacted other diners.
We had excellent service and I believe our servers’ name was Chloe.

The food was delicious and the atmosphere was awesome. We enjoyed our drinks as well as our meals. Everything was great. I had the wedge Caesar salad and the poke tuna bowl which i completely enjoyed. My husband and kids had the fries for an appetizer. Both my husband and the one of my daughters had the steak and frites and it was well seasoned and perfectly done. My youngest daughter had the scallops Mac and cheese with shrimp and she said it was delicious. For dessert we had the flourless cake and we also enjoyed it. Great atmosphere and they had a pretty cool play list going that we also enjoyed! We will be back when we are back in Chattanooga!

First visit to Stir on a long weekend in Chattanooga. The food and service were excellent! Emily was very attentive and personable. Food quality and quantity were great! A little noisy but overly intrusive. Would definitely go back when in Chattanooga again. Thanks.

We chose Stir for our final vacation meal in Chattanooga, primarily because we were in the mood for oysters. The raw bar did not disappoint and was probably the high point of the meal. There was a nice selection of house and premium oysters prepared in a variety of ways. Oysters were fresh and well cleaned. The bar is impressive in appearance and offerings. There is a large selection of craft cocktails. The ambiance is definitely bar-like and the noise level was high for most of our meal (it WAS St. Patrick's Day...) so that might be off-putting for some. Service was prompt and our server, Clark, was knowledgable and friendly. Our entrees - Scallop Mac and Cheese and Tuna Poke were both very tasty and were very hearty serving sizes. They only had two desserts and were out of one so slight points off there but overall, a very good experience and would return again.

We ordered truffle fries for an appetizer. They were brought to the table cold.
For main entree, the salmon was over cooked, and the shrimp and scallop pasta lacked sauce.
Horrible food.

Cocktails were amazing and the food was pretty good. Pretty large place and servers have a lot of tables to look after so you might find a little less attention from your server than you would like. Overall a good experience, but not our most favorite place we visited on our trip to Chattanooga.

Stir is always a great place to visit. We love the food and the service is typically good. My only complaint this visit was the hostess at the front was quite rude. The gentleman working with her recognized her shortcomings and took great care of us.

This place is AMAZING. This was my second time ever here and I loved it just as much as the last time! The tuna poke bowl was delicious and my bf had the mahi poke bowl and it was so yummy too! Rockefeller oysters were the perfect appetizer to try out too. Absolutely LOVE the fresh seafoods! Also, the flower power cocktail is delicious and wow after two I was sure having a fun time with my night haha. Shoutout to Bailey our server too- she was super awesome and put up with all of our questions about the drink menu!

Dined in this past weekend. It was the most disappointing experience we have had in a long time. Everything from the food, drinks and service were mediocre. Plus, they were letting people in the restaurant without masks on; people were standing all over the place in the bar area, etc. Shame on you Stir! :(
