Stopped in for an appetizer and a drink. The design of this building is really cool, very open with a kind of communal feel, without communal seating. The cheese plate was beautifully arranged, and although it wasn't the cheese, I had one of my most interesting bites from our Chattanooga trip at the Flying Squirrel. As an accoutrement on the cheese plate there was a slice of watermelon radish with hydrated mustard seeds. The mustard seeds had a briny, caviar like flavor and the bite reminded me of vegan caviar. Really interesting, unique and enjoyable. Our server was awesome and even went back to the kitchen to investigate what kind of edible flower was on the cheese plate. Yarrow. The smoked salt to pair with the earthiest cheese on the plate was a nice mix too. Thanks y'all!

Visited the restaurant on a busy Saturday early evening. Our server greeted us promptly and took us through the menu. Plenty of delicious small and dinner size dishes. We had the Cuban tacos, beer braised chicken tacos, a cheese platter, and a bowl of the homemade chips. Everything was terrific! Be aware the place can get noisy.

First stop this year on our Chattanooga visit. Dinner consisted of Cuban tacos, tartare sandwich, and fried chicken. Drinks were beers and bees knees. Housecut fries were ordered for all to share, and still leftover. The only complaint was the chicken was not fall off the bone chicken. Quick fried and not as well done as expected. Something to consider if you order it. Good service. Being from New England my complaint is the smoking regulations in Tennessee. We sat at a large table where people came outside to smoke. Kind of ruins the wonderful fresh air on a spring night.

This was one of my stops during a night of bar hopping. This was a very young and lively bar. A great place to meet and socialize with friends and new people. Great drink specials. The only thing that was missing was a TV to watch sporting events. Other than that, a great bar to visit if you're ever in Chattanooga.

Really tasty food. My husband loved his cuban pork tacos, and I really enjoyed the falafel. Always excited when a non middle eastern venue can produce a tasty falafel, not too dry or over fried etc. Shared some fries - HUGE serving, so beware - more like a 4 person serve.

Enjoyed the drink options too, and service was pretty decent. Didn't seem to have to wait long to order anything nor wait for the bill.
