James Creek Cattle Company, Mike's Tavern, Dida's Pizza are Chattanooga's Newest Restaurants

Thursday, April 4, 2019 - by Gail Perry

Three new restaurants will soon be opening in Chattanooga. All three were approved for a license by the Chattanooga Beer Board on Thursday morning.

 

 James Creek Cattle Co., a 6,000-square-foot restaurant with two bars, will be located at 2553 Lifestyle Way. In 1911, that area was in James County, Tennessee, which was the inspiration for the name, said Stacy Mark Lawson, representing the business.

It was described as a steakhouse. There are areas that will provide the option for private dining and meetings.

 

The owners of Mike’s Hole in the Wall which has two locations, is opening a third business, Mike’s Tavern at 5211 Highway 153 at the corner of Hamill Road and Highway 153. This restaurant will be more upscale than the other two bars with the same owners. This business will be a full service restaurant that has a bar with uniformed servers, much like Outback. The occupancy of the building is 190 including employees.

 

Dida’s Pizza, 2020 Gunbarrel Road, opened last week. It is in the shopping center with Honey Baked Ham and Stein Mart. With only the capacity to seat 15, it will be primarily a take-out and delivery restaurant specializing in pizza, appetizers, desserts and soft drinks. With the new permit, it will also sell beer.
