#1 & #2 Pickle Barrel Was a Favorite in 2021

Y'all were really feeling the Pickle Barrel Vibes this year. So much so, that it showed up in our two most popular photos on Instagram!



Pickle Barrel has been a Chattanooga staple since 1982. The restaurant’s unique space has a history that extends back to 1893 when it was originally constructed for the Southern Railway. The block around Pickle Barrel at Georgia and Market Streets saw some major transformations this year with a street makeover, swing installations, and more.
