I Highly Recommend "Over There" In North Chattanooga

Thursday, November 21, 2013 - by Donna Gaither King

There is a new restaurant in North Chattanooga, I'm old school so I haven't started calling it North Shore yet. The restaurant is called "Over There" - kinda tucked away in a secluded area on Summerville Road.

It's real easy to find though - from Cherokee Boulevard you just turn between Quality Tire and the old Loft building. It's an awesome building with a deck on the side for warm-weather dining.

It's home-style cooking with daily specials. But they do have steak and seafood on the menu as well. Their shrimp is huge and the catfish is better than anywhere around here.

I'm not much of a drinker but I noticed the taps on the wall. They have 24 different types of beer on tap.

They are open for lunch and dinner, but you can order breakfast any time of the day.

The owner is always around making sure everyone is pleased. His name is John Meeks - a lifelong resident of Chattanooga and Signal Mountain.

I recommend "Over There" highly.
