    Service got better through the meal. Having the football game on TV at a nice dining ruins the ambiance. Most of the meals were very well priced but the filet was over priced in comparison. I was late in booking for the meal and at first look the only seatings were after 9pm. When I went back the next morning to look there was a 7:30pm. We thought what luck! After being seated there was lost of seating open at 7:30 and did not see anyone come in after us.

    McClemores Brunch has the warm & lovely ambiance & excellent food across the spectrum of taste & expense. We dined in a beautiful & quiet setting with mountainous vistas and extraordinarily gracious waitresses & staff! We had a “fine dining” experience but without “snootiness.” (The atmosphere was without that typical loud volume of music that necessitates the guests needing to raise their voice to have conversation)

    We had a great experience at The Creag. We had the scallops appetizer, salads, and steaks. All were equal in quality to Chattanooga's best restaurants and upscale chain steakhouses. The host and servers were professional and friendly. The service was timely and thoughtful. The Creag has a better ambiance and view than pretty much any other restaurant within driving distance. The food and service was about equal to what we get at any other expensive restaurant - which is very good.

    Overall experience was excellent. Rissoto was a little salty, but view and service made up for it. My Old Fashioned was the best I've had. IMO, if a bartender can excel at a simple drink with few ingredients then they are very good.

    The ambiance is very nice. The view outstanding. The menu is VERY limited. My salad was supposed to have grilled peaches. Came with apple slices with out telling me there was a substitution. My wife’s egg and cheese biscuit came without cheese. After pointing it out they brought a cold slice of cheese vs remaking it so it would be hot and melted. My fish and chips was extremely greasy and mostly batter and very little fish. For an expensive restaurant it did not measure up. The service was very good. Our waitress was attentive and prompt. Probably won’t go back at least for a meal.

    Drove 3 hrs in route to Chattanooga with an expected (out of the way) high-end dining experience. Was called 1 hr before our reservation to be informed that only bar food would be served. HOW DISAPPOINTING. Should we dare try to dine there (ever) again?

    The view is magnificent! It matches the quality of the food, service and ambience of the Craeg at McLemore. Our server Brooke is delightful. This was our first luncheon/ brunch; but it will not be our last. I enjoyed my 80th birthday dinner there a few weeks ago; and it was also a grand experience. Very wonderful asset to this area.

    Wedge salad was delicious!!! View is absolutely breathtaking!!! Staff was very cordial!!! Was there with my 90 yr ok’d father who uses a Walker. I really appreciated the direct access to the restaurant without any stairs!!! The dining room is lovely with its towering stone fireplace. I’m so glad they allow non-members to patronize the restaurant (we are not golfers)!!!

    Even though it was a blustery day, the views from the dining room and terrace were dramatic. Brooke was our server and was outstanding. We were celebrating my mother's 80th birthday and Brooke made her feel extra special. I was able to bring in a birthday cake and the staff was very helpful in serving and taking family photos. The food was innovative, delicious and came out at a perfect pace. We had an early reservation so the dining room was quiet and easy to have conversations at our six top. Toward the end of our stay the dining room was full and the noise level was high which had a very festive feel. The pro shop had a great selection. We will definitely go back.
