Wellington's roots run deep in the southern Appalachian Mountains. The cuisine our chef prepares starts with this in mind; a true southern base with inspirations from around the globe. The bar features East Tennessee's most comprehensive selection of whiskeys, as well as an assortment of wines and spirits for any occasion. We hope you take the time to dine with us and experience the true southern Appalachian Mountains.

                                                I ordered 4oz filet w/fries $27. Steak over cooked and barely warm when served, fries advertised as "hand cut fries?", tasty. Waitress left food under warming lights on counter several minutes while waiting on group of six ordering drinks, got their drinks from bar while our food was sitting on counter. We also, ordered Salmon which was very good.

                                                Loved the meal. Husband had pork chop and he raved about it. I did the sweet potato and beet sandwich and it was great. The fried Brussels sprouts were killer. The table-side bananas foster was the best finale.

                                                Our experience for breakfast at Wellington’s Restaurant was tainted due to the very poor service we received from our waitress. When we were seated at our table, she didn’t greet us but instead proceeded to inform us that they closed at 11:00. Our reservation was at 10:30 so this didn’t make logical sense for us to have to be finished eating in 30 minutes. She was aggravated when we asked to have a few minutes to look over the menu and once we did receive our food we didn’t see us again.

                                                We've stayed at the Carnegie Hotel on many occasions and Wellingtons bar and the restaurant never disappoint. After a long day on the road either by car or motorcycle it is great to get an ice cold martini and the food is always well prepared. I'm a french fry snob and theirs are perfect and even better with the duck fat aioli. The filet mignon 4oz is small but prepared perfectly at medium rare, but after the crisp caesar salad and the yummy deviled eggs its a perfect size. The haricot vert were crisp tender as they should be. The only thing we didn't love was the cabernet sauce, it was too sweet for us. The wait staff was very kind and attentive. We will be back next time we are in the area.

                                                The food was delicious and served hot right out of the kitchen. The service was excellent! Very attentive and knowledgeable.

                                                This is, by far, the best steak house we've had. Having just moved here from Vegas it's been hard to find that "place" again. Great drinks, fantastic menu and appetizer options. It's perfect for date night or just drinks and dinner with friends! We had the deconstructed wellington, baked brie, catfish nuggets, New York strip and the filet. Even the salad was delicious, super fresh and not overcrowded with giant lettuce pieces. We've been a few times before and can't wait to go again! The only thing that would make this place even better is opening up the hours a little more.

Salmon and Chicken dishes were excellent! Found out it was a local roaster. Breakfast was delicious and the coffee was the best! (Local roaster-Old Goat).

                                                Dinner wasn’t as stellar as usual. I think the chef has changed. Food was more on the bland side.

                                                Cuisine was very good, excellent value for price. Our waiter advised us when he first passed by our table that the restaurant was understaffed that evening and that he might be a little slow. We appreciated his being up front about that, although from that point there was no evidence that they were short staffed. He was prompt from start to finish, we never felt that we had to wait overlong. The table at which we sat was comfortable and the noise level was equally agreeable - they've worked out the acoustics and they're not disturbing (as they are in so many restaurants). We'd go back on future trips to Johnson City.

                                                The ambience is great and the convenience of being inside The Carnegie is great. The food is pretty good. They don’t seem to have specials much, so the menu is what it is. I’ve been consistently happy with the deviled eggs, fried green tomatoes, and shrimp the food timing seems to be the same regardless. It’s always a pretty lengthy dinner and not because you’ve ordered 5 courses.

                                                Food was very good and well prepared. The portion of Brussel sprouts was a little overpowering and perhaps a little over-do e but still good. Service was excellent. Wine selection could have been better.

                                                Beautiful setting in the Carnegie Hotel; friendly service and delicious tasting food but at a higher priced dining experience.

                                                The three of us each had the dis- Wellington and considered Outstanding. But I always have the same thing when I go there and I have never been disappointed,

                                                We celebrated our anniversary here and I am happy we did. We both really enjoyed our evening. We both had the "Deconstructed" Wellington and for desert we shared a Cherries Jubilee.

                                                Very good food and good service. Only disappointment was a request for flowers at the table. I made the request on the app but it went unfulfilled. Can understand if it’s not possible but it was simply disregarded.

                                                It was great. Had never been and it was a pleasant experience. The waiter was great and the food was well worth it. Plan on going for breakfast and lunch at some other time because they have reasonable prices.

                                                Wellington's is wonderful. We are staying at the Carnegie Hotel, so taking an elevator downstairs to Wellington's is a no-brainer! We returned for breakfast and will be having dinner again there tonight and breakfast in the morning before we depart. The ambience is very nice; the wait staff is lovely and the food is great as well. It is a win/win if visiting Johnson City!
