Bluewater Grille

 After a friend suggested this restaurant I did a little investigating. She said that they get fresh seafood flown in daily. This piqued my interest because my husband loves grouper and we were going to be celebrating a special occasion – our… Read More

First Watch – Turkey Creek

Out of the current three Knoxville-area First Watch locations, this one is my least favorite. There doesn’t appear to be quite the décor that the other two locations have and the waiting area appears smaller than the other locations. I used the… Read More

First Watch – Bearden Hill

This is, by far, my favorite First Watch location! I love that, when you enter, the dining room is bright and open! There’s also this really awesome Community Table (which may actually be in every location, but we only learned about it… Read More

First Watch – Lovell Road

I was so happy to learn the First Watch is the same “Daytime Cafe” that I remembered from Florida. Of course, over the years, and it’s been that long since I stepped foot into a First Watch, the menu has undergone a… Read More

The Tin Angel

I landed at The Tin Angel because my husband’s company dined there one evening. My husband never gushes over a restaurant. Ever! That was, until The Tin Angel.  The Tin Angel is a simple looking building that, if you didn’t know it… Read More

Doc Taylor’s

If you want a great breakfast, and you’re in the Virginia Beach area, then you must try Doc Taylors! It’s nothing fancy, and you might miss it if you don’t know what you’re looking for but I’m glad we went on a… Read More

Peg Leg Porker

REVIEW Aroma Cafe

  Aroma Café 5/23/2016 Maryville, TN Wow! If you’ve never eaten at Aroma Café in Maryville, you truly don’t know what you’re missing. It’s a taste of Cuba right in my backyard. It’s a small restaurant, nothing too fancy, and is a… Read More

REVIEW Newk’s Eatery

Newk’s Eatery 9/6/2016 Knoxville, TN (Cedar Bluff) This was our first visit to Newk’s Eatery and was a recommendation of a friend and we’re so glad she recommended it to us. It is our new favorite place for dinner on Tuesday nights…. Read More

REVIEW Carolina Ale House

Carolina Ale House 10/25/2016 Knoxville, TN Our typical Tuesday evening generally leads us to a different local restaurant but, this night, we wanted to switch things up. We ended up at the fairly new Carolina Ale House near Cedar Bluff. It was… Read More

REVIEW Quaker Steak & Lube

10/29/2016 Quaker Steak & Lube Knoxville, TN My husband and I used to visit a different location about 30 minutes away but our experience wasn’t the greatest. The food was excellent but the management lacked personality. They’ve been closed some time now…. Read More
