Love this place so much. It was my mom’s favorite place since her childhood. We tried to go there every weekend when we could. The food, service, and environment were always incredible. Has that old time American feel to it.

Bea’s is a local Chattanooga restaurant with the friendliest employees you could imagine. The food was good, but the experience was what made the meal memorable. The tables are round and food is brought to the table in small dishes and placed in the center of the table. Then, the center of the table rotates to bring all the choices right to you. I don’t think there is a menu.

Excellent fried chicken. Homestyle cooking. They keep bringing out the food until you tell them to stop. Yes the peach cobbler is to die for. Haven't been there in a while, but I really enjoyed it when I did get to go. Not expensive. And all you can eat.

This is a fantastic restaurant!!! There's no menu. They cook different things everyday and just bring it all out to you table. When something runs low they bring more! Food is awesome! Staff is AWESOME!!! I live 2 hours away and will definitely make special trips just to come back here!!!

We love going to Beas. The servers are great. They keep the food hot. I just wish they would mix up the menu a little more. The past 2 times we've been, they have had the same thing on the table.

Cost for two people is around $30 ( depending on tip) SERVICE was not the best on the day we visited. We had to get some things ourself from cart. Bowls for cobbler, extra napkins, etc.. Tea was hot and asked for glass of ice instead server brought bowl with scoop. Rolls were cold and tough. The best thing was the chow chow condiment and even the strangers at our table thought so. I had ate here yrs ago and the freshness, quality, service on this day were not like it was. I would like to give this place a good review but I have to be honest. The food was not hot and just overall not worth visiting.

I can't say enough good things about this restaurant. A friend and I traveled here from Illinois and were looking for a place to eat with old time southern hospitality and cooking, we found it here at Beas. Karen was attentive and sweet creating a welcoming atmosphere. All the staff was welcoming and southern friendly. The food is so tasty. The ribs just fell off the bones it was so tender and the flavor was so good we ate them without bbq sauce. The chicken was fried just right and meaty. Best meal I've had, good variety and taste! I would definitely recommend!

Best family restaurant. Great food and fast service. Wonderful servers. Been going here since I was a young girl with our church family. Wish we lived closer so we could go more often with family and friends. If you haven't tried it give it a try if you love good country food you will want to go there anytime you are in Chattanooga.

The best food in Chattanooga. The Restaurant has been at the same location since 1950. You know the food is good. The best fried chicken you will ever have. The peach cobbler comes straight out of the oven to your table.

This place is a must go to if you love fried chicken!! They have the best, one thing that makes them stand out is the lazy susan full of food. They also seat you with strangers, which is way cool. Have met some nice people there over the years.

Went with a group of girls. Been eating here since I was a little girl. Food was very good. If you have have never been here,the food is served in individual bowls on a turn table. Tea is right up there on the turn table with the food. A little expensive, but every so often it is worth it. Plenty of parking. If you are in a small group or alone, you never know who you might sit with as they sit you at the large round tables. They fill the tables up and move on to the next one. You never know who you might meet.So go and have a good time. Hope to see you there.

Wonderful food, as always when we eat there I get my money's worth. Everything was excellent, the BBQ pork is always my pick and this evening it was just the way I like it. We have been going there for years and hope we can continue to go for many more years to come. The people that ate with us made our evening. They were such nice ladies.

This is the best restaurant on this planet. I have been dining here since 1959 when I was 4 yrs old. Best fried chicken and real hickory pit cooked pork barbecue. I also love the new potatoes in cream sauce, cole slaw, turnip greens. Rolls are homemade and sensational, they melt in your mouth.Friday’s they have great fried catfish and hush puppies. But the crown jewel is the homemade cobbler. Most days is peach but they also have apple, strawberry, cherry (my fave-usually on Saturday’s). Sometimes in summer they have the best blackberry cobbler I’ve ever had, dare I say better than my mama’s (please don’t tell her haha). All food is served piping hot and the servers are Southerners with big smiles and hospitality to match! Do yourself a favor: drop in and chow down all-you-can-eat your tastebuds will love you for it!

I love the idea of the place, very well put together. Server was very friendly and helped with all needs. Chicken wasn’t too bad but $31 for 2 people was not worth it at all for the quality of the food. Would not recommend to anybody at all.

I visited Bea's over 40 years ago and haven't been able to get it out of my mind. What an eating extravaganda for a teenage boy with a bottomless pit and a taste for home cooking. Now, with a nostalgic Google search, I find that it's still there and looks as good as it did then. I don't have that bottomless pit anymore but I can't wait to travel in the area again and get a chance to revisit.

My first time going there and it was a great experience. They serve a personal buffet at your table with a table top turn style. It was my birthday so I got my dinner free which was awesome. Food was great and the people were nice. Karen was our server and she was super sweet and attentive. We will be back for sure!

Went on a Friday night, so had BBQ, fried chicken, and catfish. Mac and cheese, new potatoes, baked and Lima beans, with potato salad. Everything was absolutely delicious!!! The style of eating was very unique and the service was spot on. Highly recommend this to anyone. Only wish I was in town longer to try other night's dishes. 👍👌👏👏👏

We ate there yesterday and the food was amazing as usual. The chicken is great but I am mostly like veggie person. The rolls were so soft and fresh, then slaw was good. I also had the fried okra, greens, pinto beans and whole potatoes. They had cherry cobbler for dessert. This has been my favorite restaurant since I can remember. They have been in business since 1950 and nothing has changed! If you’ve never been, YOURE MISSING OUT ON SOMETHING SPECIAL.
