ChuckFinley's Reviews
 
Whether it’s coming from the South or heading towards the South, Southward is basically defined as anything having to do with the Southern direction, specifically, the 180° compass point, pointing directly toward the South.<br /><br />Here at Southward, we are devoted to all things Southern, and this means local ingredients, full flavors, and a comfort you can not only feel, but taste. The menu is defined by Chef Ryan Trimm’s take on Southern staples, including some items like fried chicken, collard greens, okra, and catfish, among many other delicious, traditional meals.<br /><br />From the coastal food of Charleston and Bar-B-Que from Memphis, to fresh seafood off the panhandle of Florida and the Cajun cuisine of Southern Louisiana, Southward explores everything the South has to offer.<br /><br />Our seasonal, local menu is a fresh breath of the South, combining scratch cooking and fresh ingredients. Serving only the tastiest fare with the warmest hospitality.

"The food and ambiance were as one would expect from Ruth's Chris. The service delivered by Brandon was, at a minimum, on par with the service received from any of the previous Ruth's Chris's I have dined at before. Very well performed."

Welcome to The Crown & Goose and The Underground, Knoxvilles first authentic London gastropub, and raw oyster speakeasy. The Crown & Goose was created to provide world class food in a relaxed, traditional pub environment. We offer a wide selection of menu options from authentic British fare to delicious twists on traditional dishes created by Chef, Jeffrey DeAlejandro. With an interior inspired by London, The Underground is a unique space, perfect for an intimate date or a cocktail party. Enjoy seafood small plates at the Underground and then join us for dinner at The Goose. Or have dinner first and then come over to enjoy live music and a specialty cocktail. Either way, with seafood and oysters flown in fresh daily, you will enjoy a culinary experience unsurpassed in Knoxville. Our menus change frequently to maximize Chef's creativity and the freshest ingredients available, so come back often, there is always something new to experience.

"Really have wanted to like it here but it is always so loud. It is not"energetic" noise but ratherjust plain loud, in no small measure due to the music they play. It detracts from the experience. I get that you are trying to be British so why throw in one Tom Petty song in the midst? He is from Florida. Unfriendly hostess this time. There is always someone on staff who is in a bad mood which is a shame because most staff seem to genuinely want the crown and goose to do well and for you to enjoy your visit. Shepherd's pie was unevenly cooked and lacked even the flavor of an average effort."
