American Restaurant

“Tennessee Pass is a great restaurant serving American food. The brussels sprouts are amazing! (even if you don't normally like them) They have a cute little bar with a lot of great beer choices. The large outdoor seating area is great. *Note: ask if they are out of anything. They are occasionally out of certain things as many ingredients are locally sourced”
