After a 40 minute wait at lunchtime, we were seated and served quite quickly !!! The food was very tasty and the salads were a good size portion. It is a bit pricey but your downtown on the square.

The food was really good with a lot of options on the menu. It's a bit pricey, but still a fun place to eat.

We visited on a late Saturday afternoon, farmers market Saturday. Understandably there was a wait, but 1/4 of the place were dirty tables. If they hired additional help, they would have better turn over. I had the Southwest Salad, my friend the biscuit and gravy....More

Had dinner here on the 4th of July. Neat, trendy restaurant with good craft beer selection and homemade pizzas. The place has hardwood floors throughout which echoes the music and loud voices; at times it was even hard to hear our waiter. If you are...More

We believe less processed food tastes better. Not only does it taste better, it's much healthier too. You'll notice this difference in our house made dressings and handcrafted pizzas, as well as in our colorful salads and sandwiches. Fresh produce from East Tennessee farmers like Hines Valley Farm, Mountain Meadows Farm and Colvin Family Farm is featured in our daily specials. Well known for our vegan and vegetarian dishes, our menu has plenty for the carnivore. All of our proteins are nitrate/nitrite free, all natural and antibiotic free. Our house made lamb sausage is cooked in small batches to ensure freshness. Our sister bakery, Flour Head Bakery, prepares all of the Tomato Head's desserts and breads (including gluten free!) Each morning. By using unbleached and unbromated King Arthur Flour, we create healthier and better tasting pizza dough and sandwich breads. We also can easily accommodate your dietary needs. Whether it's a nut allergy, a preference for vegan fare or a gluten sensitivity, our staff will craft a dish to suit your tastes.
