Our Favorite Restaurants in Farragut:
- Restaurant Linderhof (German cuisine) – voted Knoxville’s “Must Try” Restaurant with a traditional Schnitzel that is to die for. Make sure and start with an order of the Hof Wings and your favorite beer in one of their steins that requires two hands to drink from. Don’t miss their “Oktoberfest” celebration going on every year on the lawn at Renaissance Farragut in mid-October.
- El Mezcal (Mexican) – visit the Farragut or Bearden location for some of the best Mexican food around. We like this place because of their authentic food and moderate prices. Oh… and dare I forget to mention the Margaritas!
- Sam & Andys (sandwiches/burgers) – Knoxville’s Favorite Burger since 1946 some will say. We love this place for its sandwiches and burgers, especially the Pizza Burger!
- Flemings Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar – Award-winning collection of 100 wines by the glass and an exceptional menu of steak and seafood. This is one of Knoxville’s best fine dining restaurants and will absolutely leave you satisfied.
- First Watch – they begin each morning at the crack of dawn, slicing fresh fruit and veggies, baking muffins and whipping up their french toast batter from scratch. Everything here is made to order, no heat lamps and deep fryers. Best part: not just a cup of coffee – you get a pot of coffee!
- Seasons Cafe – American Bistro style menu is designed around moderate pricing with high quality prep and presentation.
- Costco’s Hot Dogs 🙂 – they come with a drink included! Can’t beat it.
