Great use of space! Easy to have a small business lunch here. Wide selection of food and beer. Service is quick and efficient. Park in the back if there is no street parking.

We have recently moved to the area, this place was recommended. Often, recommendations are taken with a grain of salt, but we are so glad that we went here. Wonderful atmosphere, great beer selection, including local breweries, food was great, and the service was just right. Central Flats and Taps is on our "go-to" list for our local and "get-out"...

We stumbled upon this place and were not disappointed. Delicious food and a friendly staff. Be aware though: this is a sports bar. We aren't sports people and the next thing we knew other patrons were yelling at the television, so there's that.

Food was great. Great atmosphere. Would love to eat there again when I'm in Knoxville. So many delicious descriptions on the menu it was hard to decide what to try. Salad was fresh and Maditerranean panini was delicious.

My husband and I stopped here for a casual dinner. He had the Greek flatbread and I had a paninni (can't remember which one) with artichokes. Both were excellent. The Greek flat was loaded, and the bite I stole was delicious. My paninni was very good also. Service was friendly and prompt. We were visiting Knoxville, but if we lived... More

This is one of my great picks to have a great meal and a beverage but Friday night is not the best times for a busy bar to save seats for other employees and she also would not pour me a beer to sit at the table that was empty behind me.

Stopped in to meet some friends for a drink and some food. Started with the crab and artichoke dip. Wow! Will definitely order this again!! Also had wings which were excellent but thought the dip was the star of the evening. Great atmosphere and great staff - we will be back again.

We stopped in here with friends while in Knoxville (ROLL TIDE) and had a really good meal. They have a decent selection on tap and in the bottle. We started with three different kinds of dips which were all great but especially the spinach dip. We got several flats, mine was the Varsity and it was delicious! Very good service... More

My large group of designers picked the restaurant to send off our two excellent interns. The flats were delish and the few brave (or foolish) coworkers to get taps at a quasi-work lunch seemed to enjoy them. We dominated three table on the back patio, but still received nice service.

Convenient location in Happy Holler with parking out back or along the side streets. The bar is open until 3 am (check the web site to make sure nothing has changed). The craft beer (local, regional, and national) selection on tap continues to improve, and I'd give it a "5." It's nice to occasionally find offerings from Bell's Brewery and... More

Central Flats & Taps is a not your typical restaurant and bar. Featuring Flats (our take on naan bread pizza) and Taps (30 different beers on tap) as the staple the restaurant. Central Flats & Taps also offers fresh salads, baked wings, grilled paninis and more. We promise that our food is fresh, as there is not even a freezer on the premises for frozen food. Thirsty? Then try one of our 30 beers on tap. One is sure to find a beer they like on draft and they are continuously rotating to offer the latest seasonal and small batch beers, as well. Is beer not you're thing? Well let the bartenders make you one our signature drinks or just tell them what you like and they will create a cocktail catering to your desires. While you are at Central Flats & Taps dine on our award nominated patio on beautiful days and nights. A great place to have a meal or unwind with a drink. Cheers!!!
