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?

Hush puppies were over cooked and the fish had more breading than fish

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.

Great food great service. We try to do date night once a week and try to go somewhere different every week. We will definitely go back soon. Finding the restaurant is quite the challenge but once you are there it’s well worth it.

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)!!!

Start to finish our experience was amazing. I'd recommend getting there early to enjoy the view if you are eating inside. The food, staff and ambiance is first class. I've been twice and have always gotten the filet. It's the best!

Reservation instructions should include the access code. Appetizers and entrees were good. The salads were only so-so. For the money, we expected better quality.

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.

Loved our experience at the Creag at The Mclemore. Food was excellent as was the service. The hush puppies were unique and delicious. I had the Bibb salad and the bacon was actually pork belly. So good!

Great food and super service from bar to table. Filet came out a touch undercooked but when it came back perfect and not a crumb left in the plate. You are not gonna find a better ambiance and views in or around Chattanooga. Go early before dark.

Great location and staff was super friendly but forgot our drinks, silverware, granted new staff, but when you are paying as much as you are you shouldn’t have those mistakes. Food was fine but still needs a little work but no doubt it will get there

Celebrating husband's birthday. Came early to enjoy first time at the Creag before seeing Kristian in the Songwriters Series. Beautiful location!
Food was good but would make different choices next time.
The concert series was exceptional! Overall an excellent time was had by all! Looking forward to next time.

Our experience was EXCELLENT. Victor greeted our party of six and we were seated where I had requested. Our friends were from out of town and were very impressed with restaurant. One of the guest had played golf about 5 years ago and was very impressed with the new additions.

Tyler as usual prepared the BEST smoked old fashions. The service was wonderful. I was happy to see the restaurant full of guests having dinner and enjoying the bar. Everyone seemed to be in a festive mood. We are proud to be members of McLemore and eager to show it off every opportunity we can.

A very pleasant place for a leisurely lunch with a beautiful view. Our server was attentive, and the food was well prepared. We especially like the pimiento bites, and the peach cobbler with a twist was a home room. We’ll be back next month for a birthday celebration!
