Blue Coast has some fun food and drink options. We went there with a party of seven adults, and we all enjoyed it. The food was presented well and was pretty tasty. The drink options were also interesting. I'd definitely go back.

We attended a private party recently in the upstairs of Blue Coast Bar and Grill. The atmosphere was very enjoyable and the drinks were great and reasonably priced. I recommend this place for anyone visiting downtown Knoxville. We will be back.
