                                      It was wonderful. Very quaint little place. Really good drink menu. The deviled eggs and grilled cornbread are out of this world. The staff and service were outstanding!! Perfect for date night or drinks with friends

                                      We absolutely loved this spot. An unique dining location, the staff were awesome… everyone acknowledged the birthday we were celebrating. The food and drinking were unique and delicious. The bartender took time to talk about different drinks and items on menu and sharing experiences. The place was busy but the staff got us in a cozy spot, put a drink in our hands and checked on us until our seats were available. Will definitely go back!

                                      Everything was great with the exception of how loud the music was playing for a sit down bar/dinner table. Would highly recommend turning it down SEVERAL notches to where staff and consumers do not have to keep repeating theirselves and all you see is lips moving.

                                      We had an excellent experience. We were seated in the Green room with a cozy fireplace. The cocktails, service and food offerings were all fantastic. This was my second visit and I’ll be back.

                                      Loved loved the GF items available! However, a bit skimpy on stuff like butter and syrup that is needed for waffles. Had to ask for those, they weren't brought out with the meal. The butter they did bring was herb butter, not a great addition to the fantastic waffles. They were also skimpy on cream for the coffee. Food was excellent!

                                      Everything we’ve tasted here over four different visits has been delicious. The Old Tuttle cocktail is a favorite as well as the chicken sandwich.

                                      Had a wonderful early dinner and cocktails. Small menu which was ok because everything was delicious! Service, drinks, atmosphere, and food were all excellent. My wife is a vegetarian/vegan and had plenty of options which is a huge plus.

Service, drinks and food are exceptional. And we love the ambiance/environment. We look forward to supporting this great neighborhood restaurant in the New Year—cheers!

                                      Love, love, loved this place. It feels like home away from home! Food is amazing and priced more than fair for the quality. The drinks are creative and delicious. The staff are kind, courteous, and charming. I love that there are nooks and corners to hide away from everyone else in, almost like you’re in someone’s home. Addressing negative reviews: Don’t listen to them. If you’re worried about the noise level go a little earlier in the evening. It is a bar after all ;) If you missed it on their website, social media, and on open table: Don’t bring your kids under 21. I repeat, it is a bar. 21+ Thanks for an amazing and cozy experience!!!

                                      We visited the Rosecomb for my husband's birthday. I found the place online and wanted to try something different and I loved the fact that they created this restaurant from a historic house. I live in a historic area myself and that was the motivation as well. The restaurant had a very nice vibe and it included a bar, as well as several sitting areas. I did not see the entire house, but what I saw was beyond lovely. It is a great spot for a romantic dinner, or a special occasion. There was lots of romantic lighting, candles, and even a wood burning fireplace. Or at least it looked like a wood burning fireplace. The food was just okay, but maybe we should have tried something different. But my husband tried one of their stout beers, and he was happy with that. If I lived closer, Rosecomb would be a place I would take a visiting friend, or go for drinks. I probably would not go for dinner again. By the way, we had the catfish, and a side of the cornbread. Now, the cornbread was very very good. Overall, we would visit again, but only for dinner. Ps. I wish there was a way we could have seen the entire house. It is a new restaurant, and I believe as time goes by, it will get better and better. It was packed and I believe it is a welcome addition to Chattanooga.

                                      Cute place. Pretty loud inside. We sat outside where it was a little cold, but much better ambiance! The drinks were fabulous!
