We ate lunch on the roof top patio at Tootsies. Great view and really good food. There are several nice tables on the roof with umbrellas. We enjoyed our experience but there really isn't any service and we had to go inside to order and get drinks.

Went here for a bachelorette with seven girls both during the day to the rooftop patio and at night. The bands that played were amazing and the roof top patio during the day was amazing when it was sunny out. Many of the Nashville bars don't have outside patios, but this one does! A must visit on the Broadway strip!

This place is insane and more for the 20 year olds. Extremely crowded. The music was great and it does have three floors but way too crowded. There are other places I think that are better.

This is sort of a must-see while in Nashville. Lots of history. Similar to many of the other honky-tonks in the District, but the first floor seems smaller for some reason, and it gets crowded. Very crowded. Kinda like dangerously overcrowded. Pretty much low-end beers and who knows what kind of food, but the MUSIC! The music is fantastic! Definitely... More

Very crowded, music on three different floors, and lots of tourist. Worth a visit. I preferred Robert's Western World.

I just returned from my trip with family to Nashville. We enjoyed it very very much. One of the highlights is downtown Broadway. Tootsies is a must place to visit. There is so much history there and the Rynman Auditorium just behind it. It was a beautiful day when we visited, about 2:00pm, and music was playing on all three... More

When I visited Tootsies, I couldn't help but think of all of the famous Grand Old Opry performers that graced the establishment. There were two bands playing at the time I visited. I was going to a show at the Ryman so I didn't have enough time to stay very long, but I did sign my name on the wall.... More

This place has three floors with a different band on each floor. We spent our time on the rooftop, the weather was fabulous. The food was really good and the service was exceptional (the bar staff actually remembered what we were drinking the day before!) there is no entry fee, go see and drink!

We went in here because the music coming out onto the street sounded good. We weren't disappointed. The band was great and the bartender was efficient bringing chips and drinks right away. We were there at 10 am and the place was packed. There was music on all three floors. Wish we could have spent more time there.
