Treasure the memories; Sadly, change is inevitable.

Not quite the fabulous hideaway we remembered, but still good food. Like many restaurants in the area, LOUD seems to be the watchword. We had to change tables to get away from loud music and the louder table behind us. Our friend could barely make out what we were saying across the table. Good... read more

We had a fabulous time (all 16 of us), with drinks, fabulous food, excellent accommodations in the Treehouse and servers that were outstanding- with a shoutout to Josh. Our experience wouldn't have been the same without you.

My friend and I got there on a Friday a little before 6:00. Were seated immediately, We had an awesome server named "Sparky". So attentive, she was familiar with the menu, and made some recommendations. The food is always good here, just a bit hard to park. But that will not stop me from going back.

Cool atmosphere and decent food and drink selection. Off the beaten path, but not full of tourists or other large crowds. You will get decent meal and it's nice to hang in the open air patio area for lunch or after dinner drinks.

This was my first time there. And you never know about ordering oysters in a landlocked state or at certain time of the year. These were some of the best oyster I have ever had. And the calamari was spot on. Atmosphere and views were awesome as well. Will definitely be back.

Great food with a great atmosphere and waitstaff. We went to dinner on our second night in Nashville and really enjoyed the food and the service. I had the platter with ribs, chicken and pulled pork and split it with my daughter and still had to take the chicken and some of the sides back to my hotel. My wife... More

We recently visited Nashville and stopped here because it has a very cool patio and looks great from the outside. It is very different inside. So let me say we were a family stopping in for lunch on a Saturday. If it were a bunch of people having drinks on Friday night - that would be perfect. And the only... More

You have a unique location but your staff doesn't do anything to make you wanna stay, They seem like they are there to get a paycheck and don't care about anything else
