Very nice beer selection, had the sampler of brews from Woodruff Brewing, pretty good beer. All day happy hour on Sunday, good happy hour food selection. Had the Philly Cheesesteak half pizza, definitely a good pizza.

This restaurant and pub has tables downstairs and upstairs. There are pool tables and foosball tables, lots of good food and beer. Just a good place to spend a couple of hours after work or longer on a Saturday afternoon.

I went there two times while I stayed in Knoxville. Both times beer and vegetarian food was excellent, as well as staff very friendly and atmosphere great. On the backside you can sit outside, which is also nice.
