The Catch

Did your run down the river inspire a craving for fish? When you reserve a table at the Catch Bar and Grill you’ll encounter a modern coastal dining menu that’s wildly unique. The restaurant owner’s passion for fresh seafood founded a menu that features dishes varying from true New Orleans style Oyster Po-Boys to Japanese Blue-Fin tuna.

True at BHB adds a creative twist on modern southern cuisine. True proudly boasts its use of local ingredients grown in the heart of Tennessee in their dishes.
