Mt. Vernon was recommended by Sammy at Hampton Inn-West. Very enjoyable respite after long day's drive. Felt like we were in someone's home rather than a chain restaurant. Food was excellent, my wife and I both selected fried chicken and it was wonderful. Only negative was a small dinner salad is not one of two sides you can choose, there... More

My mens retirement group meets here with a speaker & program. We always have the back room which is semi -private often we are the only occupants. Special entrees of the day...a choice of vegetables prepared in different ways....service is always very good... plenty of free parking...great place for groups to meet

Ate at this restaurant on our way thru Chattanooga and it was well worth the trip. The food was amazing and the owner chatted with us. It is a warm friendly restaurant which is worth the visit.

My husband and I ate there after a recommendation from our hotel. The food and service were really good. We had the fried green tomatoes for an appetizer. So good! My husband had the fried chicken and I had the turkey and dressing. He said the chicken was delicious. The dressing was probably the best I've ever had. We both... More

What a delightful surprise! Looking for "fried chicken" and found this gem. An elegantly served southern home-cooked meal! We had perfectly prepared hand-dipped fried mushrooms, sautéed chicken livers lightly battered and fried, as well as several side dish vegetables all seasoned to make your taste buds dance!!! ☺️ A beautifully appointed dining area made for a very pleasurable experience! And,... More

The Mount Vernon has always been my favorite restaurant downtown in Chattanooga. I wrote a raving review on this restaurant April 17, 2012. I have always highly recommended this restaurant to family and friends, and we have had several large parties there. But inconsistent recent experiences might cause my hesitation in future recommendations. Two weeks ago we were there with... More

My Husband and I visited recently and the food was bland, expensive and service was slow. You could tell most of their customers were regulars since they knew the servers by name. We were the only people eating there under 40 or 50... maybe 60+ Honestly it's not that difficult to sprinkle a little salt and pepper on meat when... More

My husband and I were told that Mt. Vernon was a restaurant we had to try by our hotel. We went there for dinner. We were seated immediately. The restaurant was immaculate. It did resemble a funeral home inn the layout but it's been a restaurant for a long time. We were seated in Jeremy's section. If you can request... More
