Reservation Policy

Due to our limited size, seating is first come/first served. Please call us at 865-544-0537 and check to see if we are on a wait. If there is not a concert at the Bijou or Tennessee Theatre, we will gladly accept call ahead seating.

On concert nights we are usually full by 6:30 so come early.

Sunday Brunch is busiest between 11 and 1pm. If we get busy and there is a wait it is usually very short.

We have an upstairs area with two larger tables, one seats 12 and the other 8. This area can be reserved however, we do require a $50 deposit.

Parking & Accessibility

Downtown Knoxville can often be short on public parking. Please be sure you park in a designated area to avoid any parking tickets. The Market Square parking garage is 3 blocks away. There is also paid parking located around the Bijou Theater, as well as some public parking spaces on sections of Gay St.

Free parking at James White Fort and in many of the parking garages nearby. The link below includes all free downtown parking garages.

Bicycle Access

We love cyclists, as there is ample space to park your bicycle and it cuts down on parking issues downtown (not to mention the environmental benefits!). We love you so much we're offering a discount if you ride your bike to Bistro at the Bijou. Just tell your server. Save 10% OFF your entire meal.
