Monday and Tuesday? Really?
IMHO the best steak is at The Peerless restaurant in west Knox, off Cedar Bluff Road, on North Peters Road (there's also a CycleGear close by if you need a motorcycle shop fix.)
Great, traditional Italian: Naples. In the "Bearden" district, on Kingston Pike. Follow this up with a visit to The Casual Pint off Northshore Drive (very near Naples)

Otherwise spend your time in/around downtown. Market Square and Gay Street are it. Preservation Pub. Peter Kern Library (a terribly cool speakeasy in The Oliver Hotel), Downtown Grill & Brewery, if you're into opera The Barber of Seville is at The Bijou. Tomato Head Pizza... It's a great area. Enjoy!

Oh!

+1 on Time Warp Tearoom. You won't be there long but it's worth visiting.

The guy who doesn't drink? Let him drive!

My favorite Downtown Knoxville restaurant now is Tupelo Honey Cafe in Market Square. It's usually packed for good reason.

Looks like we'll be staying at the Holiday in west of town. Hafta make a stop at the Time Warp tea room, and then figure out who has the best shrimp and grits.

"Brian’s Shrimp and Grits. When Chef Brian’s name is on a dish, you know he’s proud of it. Our shrimp and grits is proof – seven large shrimp served over Goat Cheese Grits and anointed with a spicy roasted red pepper sauce."

It's on their menu in case you go there.

I've had it and really like it!!

How about a Vol Burger at Sam and Andy's in west Knoxville? Get extra napkins.
