We loved the relaxed venue with music and food. The bands were always interesting, drinks delightful, and food adequate. Went here often and was sad to see it close.

No Longer in Business. It is too bad. I have been there many time and had a great time. They had great bands most of the time and great atmosphere.

Food got worse and worse, finally closed. RIP. Too bad, not many live music venues in our small town.

Lots of antiques on display My wife and I attended a friend’s birthday party at the Whippoorwill a couple of months ago and really enjoyed ourselves. The seating area is VERY tight and was sorta hard for the waitress to go to each patron to take their order or deliver drinks and food. There was a band that started around... More

Eclectic food and entertainment venue that closed May 2014. Lots of challenges including limited parking and small space for patrons. The glacial pace of refurbishing town square was another nail in their coffin. They will be missed.

Went to the square in Gallatin this morning and noticed that the Whippoorwill has closed. :( So sad! We loved this place! Best of luck to the owners, we will miss you!

The staff here is SO warm and friendly, and made us feel like regulars from our very first visit. The vibe here is just amazing, and the music is always great. The food is fresh and delicious, and I really appreciate the variety of the menu. Definitely going back soon!

Nice place for dinner and dancing on date night. Can take children during the day for lunch. This location was on old drug store in days gone by. They have kept many of the old fixtures and memorabilia as decor. The food is always fresh and tasty. Live music is only a plus along with the art hanging on the... More

I have been to the Whippoorwill several times and I keep meaning to write a review and let others know about the place. It is located on the historic courthouse square in one of the historic buildings. The ambiance is "early 20th century"...except for the sound system and giant tv. Last trip there I had lunch: turkey panini with roasted... More

Stayed at near by State Park to visit Nashville and we wanted to try a local place in Gallatin before we left for home. Very happy we chose The Whippoorwill. It used to be a Drug Store and still looks a lot like one. Unfortunately we didn't go on a live music night & missed any promising new acts, but... More
