I went to this restaurant and ate outside in the patio area. It was a great view and wonderful for people watching. The mixed drink choices were great (try the blackberry mule) and the food choices were of a wide variety. The menu is HUGE, and every person should find something they would like on it. I personally ordered the... More

This weekend was my first experience at Blue Coast Grill and Bar - it was so good we went back on Sunday too. Saturday was Mardi-Growl and the pet-friendly patio area was a great place to sit and watch all the various animals and owners walk through with their crazy get-ups. The farm to table concept with amazing food and... More

Good food and desert. I had the blackened tuna salad which was good and my date had salmon which was smoked. Tuna was good as was salmon but it was a bit over the top smoked. In house made cheese cake was solid w apples.

I think Blue Coast is a bit undiscovered. Chef Curtis keeps the menu alive and has great dishes with flavor, texture and filling. Blue Coast uses local sources as best as they can. For lunch, I had the Strawberry Sunshine with chicken and it was great! The dressing light but good and tasted great without being overpowering. The food and... More

This bar and grill is located in Market Square, downtown Knoxville. The area is alive, eclectic and in a good central location. The food was very good. The shrimp corn chowder was very good. The pulled pork sandwich had a nice home made slaw on it. There are lots of choices of beer and specialty cocktails.
