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 heart of Old City, 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 Knoxville to enjoy our unmatched cocktails, fresh seafood, and classic dishes in an atmosphere of genuine hospitality

    We had a 7:00 reservation and got seated at 7:30. Most of the food was good but the root vegetables we over done and really not edible! Our server Emma was super nice and sweet!

    Was really looking forward to the Knoxville location since we’ve loved the Chattanooga location. Lovely location and decor! Our server was sweet and helpful. Oysters were great and had some kickass horseradish! Crab bisque presented well, but it was cold. They tried again and it was still just lukewarm. My husband ordered one of the specials, the swordfish Wellington. Server advised that it takes longer to prepare which we said was fine, but please be sure my entree was fresh, not “warmed”. His came out hot, and of course mine did not. Overall, dissatisfied with the experience. The manager did take off the bisque and discounted my meal a bit; but didn’t bother to come by the table. With an early 4pm dinner, I just expected better. He was not busy. Just not concerned.

    Excellent cocktails and dinner at STIR! The bartender created my delicious martini at a whim. We both enjoyed a burata salad the center cut filet and the white cheddar grits. Amazing, can’t wait to go back!
