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.

    We visited for a weekday lunch. The highlight here is really the cocktails; the elderflower sour with the house-made ginger syrup is quite good, for example. The food does a decent job of highlighting freshness and simplicity while still having art and presentation to it; I enjoyed how the kale in the tuna poke bowl special entree was prepared to resemble seaweed salad. We did find it slightly under-seasoned across the board. Our server, Kayleigh, was great and made suggestions that enhanced the experience.

    Our server was attentive, knowledgeable, and friendly. The food was outstanding in variety, presentation, and flavor. We started with a dozen raw oysters selected from eight available varieties. For entrees we had romaine wedge salads, the best crab bisque any of us could remember, and shared fries green tomatoes, salmon cakes, and spicy chicken samosas, all of which were beautifully prepared and delicious.

    Our reservation was for an off-hour, so there were plenty of tables. Our server was very informative and the service was prompt. The food was good and served hot. The shrimp and grits was deemed too salty. The Tilamook burger was good, but just ordinary. The mignonette sauce was too bitter, and needs re-thinking, otherwise the oysters on the half shell were good. The highlight of the experience were the wonderful truffle French fries!

    We arrived at 8:51 for our 9:00 reservation. We were told it would take 5 minutes to clear the table. We were seated at 9:21 as the hostess forgot about us. Another hostess noticed we were waiting and asked if we were were waiting as a standby. We informed Her we had a 9:00 reservation, and she apologized and got us seated immediately. The hostess who had us waiting never acknowledged us nor never apologized. Greg was our server and he made up for the lackluster hostess staff. His energy was phenomenal and he was very knowledgeable about the menu. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner, and will be back to see him.

    We went on a Saturday night, so possibly it was just a busy night and they had an off night, but the food took a long time and when it came to us all but one fried item was cold. One dish was also so salty, it was not edible. Our server was super nice and the atmosphere was fun and upbeat, the food just wasn’t on par with what we expected from this place.

    I had a reservation for 2 and we were seated right away when we came in. I loved the ambiance, the music (a little loud for me but it was ok), the waiter and absolutely the food. We ordered oysters, steak with goat cheese raviolis, and scallops dinner. The food was extraordinary and well seasoned! Our waiter was very nice and helpful too. I would definitely go back when I’m in town again!

    We were first timers in Chattanooga, and chose this restaurant based on good TripAdvisor reviews. It did not disappoint. Right smack at the choo-choo, so convenient for us to walk to the restaurant. Our waiter was fabulous. We liked the menu, and we were very satisfied with the size of the scallops that we got. Kind of a noisy restaurant, but sure did love looking at that very elaborate and big bar.

    Wow what a great restaurant! Picked it based on the high reviews and it did not disappoint! The ambiance is great in this restored warehouse! Tall ceilings and rustic vibe. Our waiter, Randall was awesome! Very attentive, sweet, southern gentleman! We started off with 1/2 dozen oysters and the truffle fries! Only complaint here would be I wish the sauce for the fries was thicker. It was runny and did not stick to the fries at all. Still tasty though! We also had 1/2 lb of snow crab that was on their special menu. The crab was perfectly cooked and came right out of the shell. Remoulade sauce was heavenly! My daughter had the mahi bowl and thought it was great! I had the best shrimp Louie salad I’ve ever had! Dressing was fresh and was the perfect creaminess to this yummy salad. Definitely give this place a try! You will not be disappointed. Oh and if your looking for a tasty drink, the elderflower sour is amazing!
