Now that summer is coming, you can’t help but want to be by the water at all times – even during meals. So we’ve found a couple of fun spots for you to order a favorite, pull up a seat and hang out with your family. Tennessee has a gorgeous waterfront restaurant for everyone, and every budget.
10. Steve's Landing - Soddy Daisy
This place is such a treat - you'll feel like you've stepped into a cabin by the lake with the option for rib platters and all the meat you can eat. Yum!
9. Boathouse Rotisserie and Raw Bar - Chattanooga
The deck. Is. HUGE. Plus, check that view?! This is great if you're looking for yummy bbq or some seafood with a view of the water.
8. Tanasi Café - Loudon
With views overlooking Tellico Lake, you'll find some great food for solid prices and a gorgeous view.
7. Blue Moon Waterfront Grill - Nashville
You'll find Blue Moon a hot second outside of Nashvillle, right by the river with a casual vibe and brunch on Sundays.
6. Calhoun's on the River - Knoxville
This lovely view is one you can take in along side your American fare or meat platter. Sure to please everyone, this East Tennessee chain is sure to hit the spot.
5. Dockside Café - Harrison
The staff is friendly and the vibe is chill, with a view from heaven and southern food that will make you wanna smack yo' mama. This is a great place for families that would still like that pretty view.
4. McEwen's Memphis - Memphis
It's a minute from the water, but close enough that it counts. Plus, the food? Makes the whole ordeal worth it.
3. Ruth's Chris Steakhouse - Knoxville
Everyone wants a steak from Ruth's Chris, but the Knoxville location has such a stunning view that you won't be able to discern which is better.
2. Beale Street Landing - Memphis
That picture up there? The view from uptop the Beale Street Landing. This is great for a date and a quiet walk holding hands afterwards.
1. Southern Belle Riverboat - Chattanooga
Why have a riverfront view from land, when you can eat ON the river? Chattanooga gives you the option with the Southern Belle Riverboat, that also serves some fantastic fare.
