Breakfasts are fantastic - the kings French toast was amazing. Just wish we had chance to try lunch there! Well worth a visit.

Best fried chicken in nashville! Really cool atmosphere, with live music every night, vintage houseware & lots of tables... Make reservations! Everything from the cocktail of the month to the entree was delicious, salmon & sweet potatoes were fantastic!!

Pro's: Location - right in the heart of downtown Nashville Decor /Ambiance- Upbeat, casual, festive Con's: Tourist trap with a Disneyland assembly line feel to it. Wait time is not worth the wait. Noise level is high which makes conversing with your table mates challenging. Little space between tables so it is difficult to navigate while walking and you might... More

We were told it would be a 2 hour wait for a table and had to pay a $12 charge each to be put on the list and get in!! What a cheek… so we didn’t eat there. We were told the food is good but $24 to wait and find out is just too much.

Me and my wife walked into a very noisy restaurant, and nearly walked out. We were seated by the bar, and had people standing by our table, which I didn't care for too much. I am glad that we didn't walk out. We were greeted and given a table very quickly (we had reservations, but often, a person still has... More

The restaurant is quite busy, with live music in the evening there can be quite a crowd. The food is good, and freshly prepared, but much of the menu is fried, so if you're concerned about having too much fried food, this isn't the place for you. Even the brownie served with ice cream for desert is fried. The barbeque... More

This is a casual dining place with down home southern cooking. The menu changes daily so you may want to check their website. There are lots of vegetables and southern meats. I recommend the Memphis style BBQ! Everything is made from scratch. You can tell nothing is heat and eat Sysco food here. Hands down the best meal I've ever... More

This location has just opened recently. It's packed with people but then the reason is it has great food and quick service. Lots of good down home cookin' items on the menu and daily specials. Bound to find something you like.

For starters, they cram way too many tables into this place. It is difficult to simply get to your table and back out, and when you're seated you're jammed up to the person sitting behind you. And the place is incredibly noisy--I mean REALLY loud! You can forget about having a conversation while you're there. And on top of that,... More

Ate here at lunch time so it wasn't crowded. Food was the best!! BBQ super, but save room for the cobbler. Light and fluffy dough part and wonderful. Went back again another day and at night they have a cover charge for the band (unusual in Nashville) and it was very crowded. You can get reservations, but we didn't have... More
