Does anyone know The Farmer's Daughter in Chucky TN?

Open three days only...Fri, Sat, Sun. Typical southern family style dining....i.e., fried everything. Carb overload on the side dishes. Cash or check debit/credit. Worth the drive...probably not.

Key West - Looking for a nice restaurant for my 40th birthday.

Cafe Marquesa, Blue Heaven, Louis Back Yard, Conch Republic, Michaels, Azur...the best thing about Key West is the restaurant next door has better food.

Pre Cruise Dinner in NOLA

Made reservations at GW Fins for supper before 12/08 cruise. Any thoughts...since I have time to change the reservation. Haven't been to NOLA for more than ten years, so I am sure there are many things to choose from.

Upscale, kid friendly dining in Chattanooga?

212 Market Restaurant, 212 Market St, Chattanooga might be a place to consider. The issue you might want to consider is that many "upscale" restaurants don't have a children's menu.

Would like recent feedback on Beach Bistro (Holmes Beach)

The view is beautiful...the food and service will only surpass it. Too many awards to mention. Hold on to your seatbelt...the price will be high but you will be treated beyond expectations. I loved the duck, served with wild berry sauce and the best brioche bread pudding.

Recs for a conference in Knoxville in April

You are coming to Knoxville...not New York. Public transportation is slim to none...but we do have cabs and city buses. Your best bet would be heading to downtown Market Square. This is right down town and there might be a few special treats in store for you. Other than will need your private car to go anywhere else. Welcome to Knoxville....Home of the Sunsphere!
