About Countryside

A Country Classic

Our History

Established in 1990, Countryside has always thrived on its family recipes and home-style atmosphere. You may remember the Kreme House in "downtown" Ooltewah. This was owned by Marlene Geren's parents who taught her many valuable lessons about running a successful restaurant business. Marlene has maintained the same style foods on the Countryside menu that were offered at the Kreme House.

Celebrating Over 30 Years of Country Cooking

This family-owned cafe has been a "well-known secret" to residents of Ooltewah, Clelveland, and Chattanooga, TN since its opening.

Owners Ponder and Marlene are deeply committed to the restaurant and are often seen at visiting with customers new and regular.
