Wine Bar
Nestled in Herron-Morton Place, a historic neighborhood adjacent to the Old Northside Historic District, Tinker Street is a nod to 16th Street’s name during the dirt-road days of the 1800s. Today, it’s a seven-dollar Uber ride from downtown hotels, a pleasant stroll for neighbors, and a convenient drive from most parts of town.
The dinner menu changes seasonally to capture the flavors of fresh, locally sourced ingredients. Vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options are abundant–and clearly marked on the menu. Tinker Street, which serves guests 21 and older, has array of wine offerings be it red, white, sparking and everything in between.

Friendly staff, attentive, but not intrusive. Husband has Celiac, and the servers were knowledgeable - and menu well marked. We will definitely be back!

4 of us. we had reservations which were needed on a friday night before 9:00 PM.
pork belly is awesome as is shrimp and grits. 2 other dishes were also good. nice wine list.
somewhat loud , most of the seating is in an outside clear plastic enclosure which actually worked well.
unique food. somewhat pricey. special occasion kind of place

Always a fun time! Might be a tad tough on those with hearing aids, but such a great experience otherwise!

I love Tinker Street! Been there multiple times, always fabulous.
They now take reservations for parties of five or more. I made reservations for our party of 5. They called to confirm and I asked to be seated in the front area. A few minutes before our reservation they called and said they would have to seat us in the main room. They gave us a great booth and comped us a round of drinks.
Highly recommend!!!

Our group had 6 people and we shared everything. One person in our group has celiac disease and there were plenty of gluten free options which made sharing easy.

We love Tinker Street! We eat there to celebrate
special occasions and always entertain out of town guests and business associates at this wonderful restaurant. I wish it were a little cheaper but, after I reread my review, I guess you get what you pay for - right?

Food was very good although larger plates were not so large for the price. I added scallops to my dish for $13 - 2 scallops. Service was excellent. But we were uncomfortable; even though we had reservations we were seated in the outside area on a 90 degree day.
