Bridgeman’s Chophouse


Bridgeman’s Chophouse features USDA Prime Beef and Chops.  While Bridgeman’s menu offers an extensive steak selection, the restaurant will feature the freshest seafood in Chattanooga, including a grand seafood tower, raw oysters, and a variety of fresh fish. By year end, the restaurant also plans to offer the city’s largest and most diverse wine list.

This classic, upscale chophouse is named after Peter Bridgeman (aka “Peter Rabbit”).  Mr. Bridgeman was one of the most well-known employees of The Read House for 47 years.  He served locals and visitors alike and almost never forgot a name or a face.  The restaurant was named in his honor for his dedication to guests of The Read House.
