The Terminal

Since Daniel typically works a four-day work week, Thursdays are Daniel's Friday. Over the last couple of weeks he has been working overtime, so this is the first three-day weekend we have been able to share together.

To kick it off, we made a last-minute decision to go out for dinner. Thanks to Google, I was able to find reviews on local restaurants and we made our way to The Terminal Brewhouse, located in downtown Chattanooga right next to the Chattanooga Choo Choo, about an 8-minute drive from our camper.

This restaurant is worth a visit just to experience the architecture of the building. It is a multi-story structure with seating around the perimeter of each level and an open atrium in the center that is the full height of the building. It is a pub, so the interior was loud and boisterous, even at 8PM on a Thursday.

We opted to sit outside in the beer garden – located over the kitchen on a grass covered, sustainable rooftop. The biggest complaint we read in reviews is that your food might arrive warm instead of hot {this is probably due to the fact that the kitchen is on the first floor and servers are running the food up and down the stairs}. Our dishes arrived hot, but the fries were on the warmish side.

Since we are not fans of beer, I cannot comment on the beer, but they do offer a wide variety of brews. And the names of the dishes are ingenious – like the Look What You Did You Little Jerk! Sandwich. We give this pub a thumbs up and will definitely be back.
