Red Dog on Main Eatery in Rogersville, Tennessee

The Red Dog on Main Taproom & Eatery opened in May 2019 in downtown Rogersville, Tennessee and is owned by Ben McGrew, Stephanie and Randy Lord. Randy and Stephanie also own the Coffee in the Kyle, which is located nearby the Red Dog. Dad and I decided to check the eatery out the evening on 1-12-2020. We parked out back near the old courthouse and walked through the alley to the front of the eatery. There are two iron gates on each end of the alley which are left open. The placement of tables in the alley and the lighting give the eatery an outdoor Parisian cafe ambiance. I plan to return in warmer weather and eat outside in the cool alleyway.

The Red Dog on Main Taproom & Eatery even added outdoor tables in the alleyway. It made me think of an outdoor Parisian cafe.
In warm weather, the outdoor alleyway cafe style of seating looks like a fun thing to do. I will check this out in warmer weather. The iron gates at either end of the alley add to the 'coolness' of the outdoor eating area.

Informal Seating Adds to Friendly Atmosphere

We sat at a table for two and shared a bench seat on one side with our neighbors at the table next to us. There were tall bar tables and lower regular tables also. We introduced our selves to our neighbors and chatted together as we ate. Chris and Ronnie were from Rutherford, Tennessee in Grainger county.  Even the ice tea tasted great. A nice variety of music played, adding to the ambiance. One song sounded like it had the influence of an Irish folk tune in the melody.

And the Food... Oh What Scrumptiously Delicious Food Got Concocted at the Red Dog on Main

Dad and I ordered the fish while our neighbors, Chris and Ronnie, ordered the pork belly and spinach and artichoke pasta with chicken. The pan fried catfish was coated with a crunch cornmeal crust and it sat in a tasty herb broth with carrots, green beans and artichokes. The spinach and artichoke pasta with chicken had fettuccine with sun-dried tomatoes, baby spinach and artichokes with olive oil for an exotic taste. The Bourbon Cider pork belly was pan seared with a Bourbon Cider glaze. The Indian Spiced Scottish salmon with ginger tomato chutney was simply scrumptious. I also ordered the vanilla bean vanilla ice cream with chocolate espresso and two shortbread cookies. For more choices check out the Red Dog on Main menu. Suffice it to say, I was in seventh heaven over my meal and Dad even allowed me a bite of his yummy catfish.
