Some of the best pizza I have ever had. The rooftop is fabulous when weather permits. When it is hot outside they have misting fans on the rooftop. Love the view over Market Square.

Love the staff, atmosphere and beer. Food isn't that great. I guess at 12am and after 6 or 7 beers it's okay. Its definitely my favorite place to go downtown.

We were in town on St. Patrick's Day and stumbled into Preservation Pub because all the eateries in Market Square had hour-long waits for dinner (why?!). They had great bar food and excellent beer. After the Knoxville Ice Bears hockey game, we wandered back to...More

It's like 3 bars in one, with good prices and great entertainment. The roof is one of the most trendy places in Knoxville and has an awesome view overlooking Market Square. Pres Pub is a must for anybody looking to have a good time downtown!

I am going to say yes. It is only $5 and you get into Scruffy City as well.
