Food Works Ratings and Reviews
It was fine. Our food took over 45 minutes to arrive after we ordered. Our waitress also forgot to bring a drink that was ordered and simple items such as ketchup. The waitress blamed the issues on the kitchen, but either way it wasn't great. However every other time that we have been there was awesome.
Foodworks is our go to place for Sunday brunch. They have a great menu, wonderful food and outstanding service. I'm not sure what was off but our food took 40 minutes to come to the table and the crab cake wasn't even room temperature. Over the past several years I've had the crab cake benedict dozens of times. This time the temperature was way off and the size looked smaller. I know it was smaller. I thought to myself if this dish gets any smaller they will have to start using quail eggs. My hope is this was just a one off. We will be back with fingers crossed.
OMG It's been a long time since going to FoodWorks because it's always so busy :) But booking on opentable made it easy to get in! Brunch was amazing! I had the crab cake benedict, very crabby and super delish. I also highly recommend the donut egg sandwich. Yes you read that right. A local donut shop meets egg, back and cheese. Hello Heaven! Paired w a $1 mimosa and it's calling me back again soon! Great service too!
We were there on Father's Day, and it was crowded. Waiter was excellent, but food took a long time (much longer than they normally take). Noise level was higher than usual due to the crowd. Love the restaurant and go fairly often, but might avoid really popular times in the future.
The food was delicious as always. This is THE place for brunch in Chattanooga. Great brunch menu as well as very reasonable brunch drinks. Great mimosas and bloody Mary's. The crabcake Benedict, French toast, chicken and waffles and breakfast burritos are to die for.
We were there a couple weeks ago for a birthday celebration. Had a party of 12. I don't know who the waitress was but she did an awesome job.
We came back today for another birthday celebration. I would like to give the waitress the benefit of thinking maybe she is new, maybe not feeling well today, or that you guys were short of help, but the service was nothing compared to the last visit.
We had a great experience celebrating my birthday at Food Works.
The servers were friendly. The food was great.
The atmosphere was cool.
This was our first time going to food works after being recommended to go there by a friend.
Family friendly as well and our kids really enjoyed it.
Will definately be going back and would recommend this restaurant to anyone.
The restaurant had no menus when we sat down. Had to use cell phones to order. We the meal arrived it was cold. I had shrimp and grits and they were extremely salty. My husband's beef brisket hash was filled with uncooked potatoes. My mom's waffle arrived cold and almost burned. We will not go back
I made a 6:15pm reservation to dine at Food Works several days in advance to celebrate Mother's Day with my wife and son. My wife and I have enjoyed the food and service in the past. When we arrived at the designated time, we were told our table was still occupied and the guests occupying the table were not close to finishing. The hostess asked us if we would mind taking a table in the bar. We were a little upset since we made a reservation, but agreed since we were all hungry and didn't want to wait. After a couple of minutes of being seated, the hostess returns to our table extremely embarrassed and asks us to move as the table she seated us at was actually reserved. She explained she made a mistake and apologized several times. We were getting really annoyed at this point, but again agreed to move a couple of tables away. I should note, there were multiple tables within the bar available. Shortly after we moved, a couple is seated at the table we just left. Throughout our dinner, I watch several restaurant staff come and greet them with hugs. Later, I asked our waitress if they are the owners of the restaurant. She confirmed they were investors. I was shocked that owners/investors of the restaurant would be the cause of their employees treating their customers so badly. I don't blame the hostess at all.....she was clearly embarrassed about having to ask us to move. I blame these owners for allowing it to happen and not placing their customers first. Very selfish!
I brought a group to Foodworks for a post-graduation celebration. I had been previously for a birthday celebration. Once again, Foodworks proved to be a great choice. We were seated in an area that provided nice space for our sizable group. Everyone was pleased with their meal, the ambiance and the overall experience. I will definitely return!
