Downtown Grill & Brewery

The Downtown Grill & Brewery is located on historic Gay Street, about one block north of the Tennessee Theatre. The Brewery has a rich history, told not only by its well-worn hardwood floors, but through its pictures of Knoxville gone by that dress the walls. With its copper and mahogany bar, tempting menu, and fine craft-brewed beers, it’s a relaxing setting to explore Knoxville’s flavorful past.

Our focus is on uniting our excellent beers with the exquisite flavors of open-flame mesquite grilled steak, seafood, and chicken. With a menu ranging from pastas to Mexican cuisine to seafood to the finest steaks, Downtown Grill & Brewery is guaranteed to please.


We won WBIR's pick for the Top 5 destinations for Why People come Downtown. We took first and Tennessee Theatre took 2nd. Which, if we must say is a beautiful night out. Thanks to those of you that voted. See you at the Taps!!

Open 7 days a week, the Downtown Grill & Brewery is one of downtown Knoxville's favorite gathering places. One visit and you'll know why.

Our goal on service is simple: To know our guests, not only by their food and their drink, but more importantly by t
