We enjoyed a great birthday dinner 2 Lonesome Dove. I always feel like i am not in Knoxville when I eat here! Great menu and cocktail selection! It is nice to see the old Sullivan's location revamped and looking fantastic! Fantastic downtown location and valet parking is a bonus.

Great dinner for a date night or business - just keep in mind the price!

First of all the ambience and decor immediately sets the tone! We've frequented this restaurant many times for different occasions. The food, drinks, and service never disappoint! The staff does fantastic job of going over the menu in detail and with making recommendations. The menu offers an eclectic mix using high quality ingredients and wild game. Nearly every visit my wife gravitates towards the signature garlic stuffed filet and the Texas red which is a beanless chili. I will say its hard for me not to get that also being that it's so good! I usually like to mix it up though and try different items because everything is so unique and flavorful!! Last time we visited I had the rabbit enchiladas with lobster hushpuppies for an appetizer. Both were outstanding!! If your looking for a great night out enjoying some great food then look no further than Lonesome Dove!

Went to a new restaurant, for us anyway, for our wedding anniversary and Lonesome Dove was a great choice. As good as the food and atmosphere were, the staff from start to finish was the highlight. Anthony with help from Derek hit it out of the park for us!

Where to even start?! My husband and I went to Lonesome Dove to celebrate a small victory that felt huge. From the moment we walked in the door, we felt at home. The staff were incredibly knowledgable and friendly. Our waitress Jane guided us through this culinary journey and we had a lot of fun talking with her. This was an unforgettable meal! We tried things we had never had like foie gras, rabbit and rattlesnake sausage, and elk loin. The cocktails were also fantastic! We both really enjoyed the Sullivan Smoker and the 1888. This is simply a must try restaurant in Knoxville. Even if you just go for cocktails, dessert, or appetizers it is well worth your time.

went with a business group on a colleague's recommendation. Fabulous! great beer and cocktail selection, and the western cuisine was quite tasty. has exotic meat selection as well as the traditional choices. Pricey but worth it.
