Always love the food here. It is made fresh daily and you get great food for a great price. I highly recommend the burgers or the meats and veggies. Breakfast is delicious as well.

LEAH was our server at Innside Restaurant, and we had a fantastic time. Our coffee mugs were always full, and the biscuits n' gravy were incredible. I highly recommend this little diner for an early morning fill up. Will be back many times, I'm sure.

Nice little diner serving up local fare with southern hospitality. If you haven't tried biscuits and gravey or grits then this is the place to try it. Food is what you expect but the people make the difference. Go in and get a feel for Chattanooga. They ain't putting on no airs Innside Cafe.

If you work downtown or are planning to be near the intersection of Chestnut and 8th then drop-in to the Innside Restaurant. It's a downtown diner infamous for Waffle House-lie breakfast or lunch with no frills and free refills. The food is average. The service is diner-like so it's fast and friendly. Really, not much more to say.

This is an unpretentious little place for a hearty, tasty breakfast or lunch. Once discovered , it became our preferred breakfast spot in Chattanooga. By our second visit, the friendly, efficient waitress knew our preferences and our names. This is obviously a favorite of locals, but it became our favorite too.

Thank bryantjajb
