Wanted to like this place a lot more than I did. After all, location is perfect--very picturesque. And the ambience is great--really nice renovated old building. But the beers I had tasted the same--and when was the last time you had an IPA and a Maibock that tasted the same! I got the bison burger, which was tasty but quite small. And the service was insincere and cold feeling. I’m only going back because it’s the best option I’ve found while staying in this part of Chattanooga, but it’s nothing I want to go running back to.
Stopped in for lunch on a Saturday. The location is great. A renovated old train terminal with a nice bar, restaurant, and brewery occupying 3 floors. They did a great job designing the space. Lots of light, flat screens, good flow. The service was excellent, the food was good (better than most brewpubs), and the beer was good. My favorite was the oatmeal stout but, they had a few good ones. It’s definitely worth a try if you’re in the area.
This place is right next to the Choo Choo in the downtown area. Stopped in for lunch on a snowy Saturday. The ambiance here is great. It is in an old, odd shaped building. It is narrow and 3 stories tall. There is much exposed brick and beams everywhere. The waiter was very knowledgeable on the beers that were available. Everyone in my party enjoyed the beers very much. We all had sandwiches for lunch, and they were all top notch. The soup and sweet potato fries were also very good. According to the menu they source much of their food locally, and the freshness was evident in the taste. This place is well worth a try.
Surprisingly busy for a Sunday afternoon. Well-staffed and plenty of seating. Nice roof deck. Excellent pub grub with a creative flair, but portions could have been bigger. Six unfiltered beers on tap, all very good except for the stout which was still okay. Waiters were friendly, informed and competent... the 1st floor bartender seemed kind of frazzled. I’d definitrely go back... far better experience than Big River. Take CARTA to the south terminal, brewpub is on the other side of the big "choo-choo" sign
Rating 114. RIght next to the Chattanooga Choo-Choo in one of those old, triangular shaped corner buildings. Very cool on the insdie with a good bar on the first floor and seating on the floors above. Our waiter knew his beer and made some good suggestions. They have a sampler which is always a plus. The food is good, we had a burger and a pizza and both were tasty. As for kids they have no real options for kid food less than, lets say 2 years but a welcoming environment to say the least. The beer is good and I think that you will not be dissapointed if you swing by this place.

Easy to find location and since I was on my motorcycle the parking in the back was easy. Remodeled building with patio on the second floor. Bar in the middle with kitchen in the back and upstairs seating. Freindly staff and nice time spent with the owner. The sampler was a good selection and enjoyed trying the beers. I had lunch with a freind and had good app portions and the flavor and freshness of salad was very good. Went twice while I was in town. When I am back in the Noog, I will go again.
Nice location outside of an old train station depot area.
My favorite place visited in TN with some fine beer offerings.
The brewers there are doing a fine job with the beers.
The food we had was outstanding and the staff ready to answer all questions.
Bought a growler of Belgian Wit to go.
Stopped in for brunch after ‘Noog 5. It’s not in the best area and my wife and I were yelled at by some bums on the corner as we were trying to park. Better give those guys some change, man. However, once we were in the building we found the facilities to be quite nice. Cool building in general and three stories of seating and bars. The second story has a cool outside deck with a live grass floor. Service was fine, and the chicken nachos we had were good. The beers were all drinkable but they were out of a couple we wanted to try. I think the wit was the one that cured my hangover. Prices seemed fine. I will be back!

Stopped in for a much needed brunch after noogfest high 5. Very cool place. I really loved the 4 level setup. The grass outdoor patio, along with the hop garden made the third floor quite unique! Great names for the beers too. Staff was quick and friendly. They only had 3 beers on draft when I was there, but the wit was pretty damn good morning beer. The menu had a ton of things I wanted to order. And the food I got was pretty damn good. I would definitely make this place my hangout if I lived in the noog.

Awesome historic building, cramped on the Friday night, sat on the patio, which was nice but man it was hot. Beers were great, were out of the Hefe at the time though. Prices were ok. The food I thought was odd. The serving size was like they wanted the sandwiches to be big but didn’t put enough meat in them. So they all looked very ’bready’ for lack of a better term. Just make them smaller buns if you don’t want to use more meat.

I was bummed that I have to miss Noogfest, so, to make me feel better, The Bride suggested a kind of spur of the moment trip to Chattanooga. Brilliant! First stop - Terminal. Very cool place, great location (right next to The Choo Choo and warehouse row). The service was attentive without being smothering, the food was excellent (had an appetizer sized pizza) and all of the beer was safely above average. Definitely seemed like a fun place.
