While traveling through Tennessee with my husband, sister and brother-in-law, we wanted to experience a local restaurant and decided on this one. The decor was retro and very quaint. With a 4.3 rating we thought we were in for a treat. We ordered and immediately were brought two plates but they weren’t our order. Flies were an issue. We then got the correct order for the two of us but not my sister or her husband. About 10 minutes or more their food came. My husband ordered two oatmeal raisin cookies and received peanut butter cookies instead.The meat and three wasn't served with any bread and when asked about that she said “No, that would be good though. “ The turnip greens came out of a can. The corn was very sweet. It was disappointing to say the least.

Four of us were traveling through Tennessee and decided to stop in for lunch. We ordered and sat down with our drinks…which were canned drinks- not my favorite. The other couple got their food right away, but the order was wrong and later found out that the waitress brought them someone else’s order! Finally their correct order came, but ours didn’t come until they were halfway through eating. The green beans tasted like they had been cooked in vinegar. The fried chicken and broccoli were ok. Between the wait and getting the orders mixed up it made for a very long lunch that was frustrating. I do not recommend eating here.

Can't say enough great things about Blue Chair! We recently catered Blue Chair for an event on campus and they could not have been easier to work with. They were great at communicating and checked in multiple times before the day of the event to ensure everything went smoothly. The staff is so kind and made the process so easy. We catered the chicken sandwiches and the black bean burgers for the event and they were both a HUGE hit (highly recommend). We look forward to catering from Blue Chair again and stopping in for their delicious breakfast soon!

We had a great lunch with The family. The kids got a Mac and cheese which was creamy , sharp cheddar delicious. I got the cheese steak which they put A1 sauce on it so be warned if you like that. Next was chicken salad sandwich. The bread was very crunchy and chicken salad was fresh and creamy. Last was the star of the afternoon which was the meat and three chicken pot pie. Crust was amazing and chicken delicious. I would recommend this place. I can not wait to try breakfast.

We loved this place so much . The food was delicious , but the kindness and friendly service we received meant the most . The world needs more places and people like this . The best cookies we have ever eaten !

The pretzel bites are a must order appetizer. The patty melt is incredible. The beer battered Jackalope Chicken Strips are always a great choice when you aren't sure what you really want to eat. The Tavern side is the home to the Sewanee Tigers Coaches corner. Be sure to check out all the memorbillia. YSR!

We were very excited to come back to the blue chair as every time we visit sewanee for family we make it a point to stop here. Every time we have been very happy with our time, this time less so. The food was great and coffee pretty good. But the customer service was lacking. The woman at the counter was very patient with our big group helped us with everything. But there was obvious signs of stress most likely form her coworker running around, being rude, and forgetting many orders and names. His customer service was less than desirable.

Had the fish and fries. Thick cut cod(?), very good. Coleslaw would have been an inexpensive item to offer with the dish.

During the week it's A meat and three. On weekends there is a different menu. We went on the weekend. Had the fried cod and a salad. Most of the seating is outside in the shade. Only negative is that there is a sign asking you to wear a mask even outside. Very unusual for Tennessee.

Sooooo yummy! Highly recommend if you’re in the area! Great customer service! Chicken tenders, fish and chips and chicken salad were all delicious! Very fresh and made to order! I’ll be going again.

The blue chair and tavern are awesome! I always stop in when I'm passing through Sewanee. The beer battered chicken and Jackalope beers are the bomb!

My mother and I always enjoy to eat local cuisine in small towns that we visit. So, while eating here, my mother saw a young blonde waiter take and eat the kettle chips off two different customers' plates while bringing them their orders. COVID, hello!!
