Friends recommended this restaurant and initial impressions were good. Atmosphere is very nice but unfortunately the food that I chose did not impress. I ordered the quinoa and black been burger. The burger was falling apart in the bun and simply had no taste. I have had this type of burger before and this one didn't come close to the... More

A group of 12 had dinner at the Food Works tonight (2/6). Service was very good, Appetizers are large enough for sharing, drinks were delivered and food service was very quick,especially to serve 12 hungry people. Food served was everything from a French Dip sandwich to Lasagna , Turkey Reuben and Monk Fish, all delicious. Our waitress was very efficient,... More

We went to Foodworks with the whole family (9 people) in Chattanooga for Brunch on Christmas Eve. We all drove about 2 hours to get there and it was well worth the trip. I am so glad they were open and able to accommodate us with fairly short notice on a holiday via their online booking. The restaurant was extremely... More

Everything was excellent!! We made a reservation (I would recommend it for Fri & Sat) and were seated upon arrival. Our waitress, Claire, was so sweet and answered all of my questions. The burger was delicious as well as the Chicken Piccata.

This is our favorite place to eat in Chattanooga. We love their house chips with blue cheese dip. I don't recall ever having a bad meal their.

Great food. Going down the menu, I see myself eating every entree eventually. My wife and I went with another couple. Each plate was colorful, and looked delicious. I got the pork chops. My wife got the chicken. Of course, I didn't get to taste the other two plates. It was priced 12-17 bucks a plate, which I am comfortable... More

Food was very good plus had several items to choose from on the menu. Even had a few drinks special with brunch. A big winner in our group was the... More

I had lunch there this week with friends. The service and the food were great. I would recommend the salmon cakes! They are fantastic and reasonably priced. We arrived about 1:00 p.m. and the restaurant was busy but not full. We enjoyed eating upstairs in a very peaceful atmosphere. I recommend Food Works!

We had a family group ages 5 thru 71. Made reservations and they had our table ready when we came in. Many choices on the menu and also had kids menu. Good size portions and wonderful presentaion. Price was fine. A great place for large family or business groups.
