This is true Southern comfort food. The pies are amazing (even if they won't share the pie recipe) Love the okra. Stop and visit

Fried green tomatoes and southern fried chicken highlight this dining establishment. Good bar, good drinks, good food, beautiful dining rooms, and excellent service at very reasonable prices. We will remember this place the next time we pass through.

Learned about this restaurant on our hotel website, and even received a coupon for free Fried Green Tomatoes from the hotel. The restaurant looked interesting and enticing and we were not disappointed. The fried green tomatoes we're the best we've ever had, pecan encrusted Carolina brook trout was absolutely delicious, and the accompanying sides were homemade and all very good.... More

We ate a very good meal at Mount Vernon on our way through Chattanooga. My husband and I split a meal and there was definitely plenty of food. We started out with a cup of the potato cheddar soup. Then we had the potato crusted haddock with southern style green beans and mashed potatoes. There were 2 huge pieces of... More

Mt. Vernon was recommended by Sammy at Hampton Inn-West. Very enjoyable respite after long day's drive. Felt like we were in someone's home rather than a chain restaurant. Food was excellent, my wife and I both selected fried chicken and it was wonderful. Only negative was a small dinner salad is not one of two sides you can choose, there... More

My mens retirement group meets here with a speaker & program. We always have the back room which is semi -private often we are the only occupants.

Ate at this restaurant on our way thru Chattanooga and it was well worth the trip. The food was amazing and the owner chatted with us. It is a warm friendly restaurant which is worth the visit.

My husband and I ate there after a recommendation from our hotel. The food and service were really good. We had the fried green tomatoes for an appetizer. So good! My husband had the fried chicken and I had the turkey and dressing. He said the chicken was delicious. The dressing was probably the best I've ever had. We both... More

What a delightful surprise! Looking for "fried chicken" and found this gem. An elegantly served southern home-cooked meal! We had perfectly prepared hand-dipped fried mushrooms, sautéed chicken livers lightly battered and fried, as well as several side dish vegetables all seasoned to make your taste buds dance!!! ☺️ A beautifully appointed dining area made for a very pleasurable experience! And,... More
