The restaurant was nestled in the beautiful Read House Hotel. Dylan was our server and was one of the best servers I have ever had. The cocktails were great and the food that followed was a true treat. The filet was prepared to perfection. I...can’t recommend this gem enough. Go and see Dylan, he is one of the best fine dining servers Chattanooga has to offer.More

My husband and I stopped in Chattanooga for one night on the way to Nashville from Atlanta. We were tired so we opted to eat at Bridgeman's since it was in our hotel. I'm so glad we made that decision. The food and service were...wonderful. We had an amazing seafood tower for two to start and it was incredible. I will warn you that it was huge though! For dinner we had the Tomahawk for two and it was a perfect Pittsburgh rare. We had the Brussels sprouts as a side and they were so delicious I didn't want to stop eating them even though I was stuffed! All employees were wearing masks and patrons were properly social distanced so we felt very safe. I would highly recommend!More

We have eaten a lot of steaks and the Bridegeman is easily one of the best. Filet was so tender it's like eating clouds. Lobster Mac & Cheese, Lobster Bisque, and the desserts were delicious. Wonderful and friendly staff. What a delight to find an...excellent eatery in Chattanooga.More

Everything cause wonderful except my chicken, it was the pan seared and it seemed dry & not cooked. My daughter ordered the same dish and it was delicious. I would for sure try this place again because everything else was phenomenal.

Great dining experience while in town celebrating our daughter's college graduation! David took great care of us and the meal was superb from beginning to end. Highly recommend the bone-in filet, salmon, duck, creamed spinach and brulee. Hope to return some day when in Chatt...again.More

Definitely worth the drive. Started with a winery in Georgia and ended with a filet, lobster risotto and asparagus at Bridgeman's. Filet was perfectly cooked at medium. I am picky about food and especially a well-cooked steak. Next time we are going to try the...tomahawk ribeye. The ambiance was nice for a family outing or a romantic date. Our server Alan made our experience more enjoyable for it to be our first time. I've had good steak in other cities now I can add Bridgeman's to the list.More

No dress code but definitely worth sprucing up to dine there and tour the hotel- it’s a must see- be sure to check out the bar area off the main lobby- the staff is dressed like back in the Roaring 20’s!
