(Re)Discover Chattanooga - The Terminal Brewhouse

I've been back in Chattanooga 2 years now, and it's only when people stop and say "you've never been to insert any number of cool places" that it becomes evident that I really was gone for a decade.  I promise I am not as old as that makes me sound.

One of the places people are shocked that I'd never been is The Terminal Brewhouse. A few weeks ago, I was with friends on the Southside, and they decided this was a problem that needed to be fixed.  So we walked from the First Tennessee Pavilion over to The Terminal.

One of the reasons The Terminal has been on my unofficial list of places to go in Chattanooga is their rooftop patio and garden.  It's picnic table seating, with panels for shade, and herbs, flowers, and has vines growing all over.  It's not a surprise that I love an urban garden.  So, we sat outside and ordered drinks and an appetizer.

I'm not qualified to talk about the house brewed beer, (I'm allergic to hops) but I know that it is made on site, and it has a good reputation around town.  I am qualified to talk about the appetizer, and our 'Festo' - feta, basil, olive oil spread - was great.  It's simple, served with pita bread, and addictive... you've been warned.

As much as the Terminal is known for their beer, they are also known for their burgers.  The Bison Burger is known by some as the best in town.  The menu is pretty simple, and you can tell what The Terminal does, they do really well.  I had to be different and ordered the "Macho Man" sandwich.  Randy Savage would be proud.  The menu says "An 8oz cajun dusted chicken breast topped with hot sausage, pepper jack cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion, and cajun mayo."  It was amazing.  I ordered mine with a side of bacon grits, and yeah, it was good.  Really good.  It was also huge, so it took a while to eat, which was OK, because it was prom season, and we enjoyed another round of drinks while we watched people bring in their prom dates.  Yes, The Terminal is a burger place that is prom date worthy.

The other completely unrelated, but fun, thing about our trip to The Terminal was that the Chattanooga Whiskey 'Whiskey Truck' was parked outside.  Great minds think alike, right?

  1. Sounds like you had great fun with your friends. Those appetizers do look wonderful!
    I like your photo of that great old truck, too!
    It is sunny and warm here, but rain is moving in tonight. Hope you are having a beautiful day.

    1. Thanks Mary, I think we're going to get some rain here too, probably over the weekend. Just at a time when I really need to be working in the yard and doing some weeding.

      Have a wonderful weekend & Happy Gardening!!

  2. The Terminal is probably my favorite restaurant in Chattanooga. The FESTO is TOTALLY addictive and in my opinion their burger is one of my top three favorite....if not my favorite (I haven't had the bison burger). The West By God Salad (topped with sliced steak & French fries) and the pot roast nachos are also fantastic.

    1. Thanks Mary, I'm going back soon, and I'm definitely going to try a burger this time!

    It is definitely because children manifest skills and knowledge in phases.
