Shag (81) Chattanooga, Tennessee | January 11, 2009
This place opened yesterday! It’s in a renovated building right beside the historic Chattanooga Choo-Choo building. It’s not a huge building but it is 3 stories. I was impressed with service and knowledge by the staff especially with it being so new. The menu offered some interesting food items. The beer was good as well as the food. The prices were reasonable. $4 pints and the food prices were less expensive than most restaurants in the downtown area. Overall I was impressed and will definitley recommend it to others.
Beer selection is solid. WIFI available . Parking can be dicy late evenings and weekends. The place is worth the effort. Service prompt and friendly. Food was pretty damn good. Large bar area and upstairs seating available as well. Flights available.
Visited here this past 4th of July...seemed like the best choice in town according to RateBeer. Came here after the fireworks at the nearby minor league baseball stadium. The place itself is very nice...large...dark wood...multi-level...with interesting décor on the walls. The food looked and sounded good...but I’d already stuffed myself earlier in the afternoon at Jack Brown’s in Birmingham. I had a flight plus samples of all their beers...6-7 or so. I did not find any of the beers especially good...can’t say any were actually bad or off flavor or anything like that...just pretty generic really. I would not come here specifically for the beer...but if in town I would definitely come back for the food...and try their beers again. I would definitely note that the bartender that served me (Annalee...sp?) was fantastic...great service and great conversation.
Visited for dinner on a Friday with a group of 15. Really cool old renovated building in the downtown area of Chattanooga. Easy to find off the highway, bigger parking lot right behind the restaurant. The first floor is mostly the bar area (which is a neat maze of nooks and crannies), with table seating on the second floor and the third floor appeared to be for private parties. There were six house beers on during my visit, including a Belgian Wit Sour. All 3 of the beers I tried were decent. Food menu is pizza focused, though also featured a more traditional brewpub menu of burgers, salads, etc. Service was solid considering our group size. Overall, fun stop.
70 = ★★½ (Locals should check it out, visitors with extended time)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.
Based largely on a June 2015 visit, I have been here a couple of times before. Their beer list is restricted to 6 house beers and, being in TN, these are all restricted to 6.% ABV or less. Terminal manages to produce some fine beers (an no losers in my experience) and good variety within these constraints. Very good to excellent food, including the salmon sandwich and the lamb burger.
Free parking in the rear.
Terminal is a really cool place, and it’s right next to the Choo Choo. It has two levels of seating which are open to the brewery in the basement, and a great second story patio. The beers are mostly good, but they’re kind of boring. I’ve been several times and never had anything that was particularly interesting. The food is very good. I would definitely recommend this place for any craft beer lover in or visiting Chattanooga.
This is a large place onm two levels. I only noticed the top level after I sat at the downstairs bar and watched servers going upstairs to what I assume is more of a restaurant. Downstairs bar was twisty turny, and there were a few booths as well. Large parking lot outside was pretty full, and I can understand why. Every beer was tasty, some were exceptional. Food was tasty. Service was friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. Brewing equipment visible in a sunken area between the bar and the kitchen in this odd shaped, old, characterful building. Nice place.
We visited the Terminal Brewhouse on a chilly Wednesday morning in February and it was buzzing! Chris had a flight of 6 beers - four regulars, one rotating tap and a seasonal. I was driving so only had sips but I thought they were rather good and the service was very friendly and super-efficient.
The Brewhouse is in the flatiron-shaped "Strong Building", which has served various purposes over the years. It was originally a hotel (and a speakeasy) and was converted into a brewpub in 2006. There are three floors and you can view the brewery down in the basement from the iron staircase at the wider end of the building. The windows on one side overlook the fortress-like terminal station which was opened in 1909 and now houses the Chattanooga Choo Choo Hotel (worth a visit if, like me, you like poking around old stations and railway sidings).

Went on a Friday night. It was busy, but i was seated quickly and the service was prompt and friendly. the selection was a bit limited but the Hefe I had was decent and the IPA as well. I had the pulled pork BBQ and it was good but not eh best I’ve ever had.
