Great Chattanooga Lunch Spots

Let’s be real. No one likes brown bagging it in their cubicle or ordering Jimmy John’s for the 3rd day in a row. It’s mostly likely not good, boring, and not satisfying for your growling stomach during the mid day. You have probably had your lunch routine down or have your go-to spots, but The House knows you are better than that so here are some restaurants for you switch it up a bit. Go to lunch, go local.

Universal Joint
Universal Joint Bar & Restaurant in Chattanooga is located in the old Farrow’s Service Station — at the corner of Vine Street and Georgia Avenue. UJ offers an easy going indoor/outdoor seating, friendly atmosphere for you to relax on your break. You can even enjoy a quick game of cornhole.

Bluegrass Grill
Bluegrass Grill is a family owned & operated breakfast and lunch to order in a fun, cozy atmosphere with DELICIOUS options. Biscuits, bread, and baked goods are all cooked in house. Every week day, they have a special homemade soup.

Clyde’s on Main
Meet your new favorite restaurant, plus bar, plus lunch spot. That’s right – it’s that great! Hungry? Check out Clyde’s amazing appetizers, fresh salads, homemade soups, crazy-good sandwiches and certifiably INSANE smoked pork, brisket and chicken, always cooked low and slow. Enjoy it all while playing foosball, shuffleboard, ping pong, or just simply with your friends or co-workers.


Influenced by the rich, more than century old history of the Chattanooga Choo Choo – where the restaurant is located – STIR offers a place for friends and family to reconnect in a space that weaves a modern, urban aesthetic with historic remnants of the iconic terminal station.

Frothy Monkey
Frothy Monkey is a neighborhood concept, and a proud member of the neighborhoods they serve. You can count on Frothy to deliver quality, creativity, and approachability in everything they create.
