Excellent Time

First time here. On business. Really great time. The beer is okay and the food is average though. Keep it simple. The building and entertainment awesome. Service friendly and fun. Will be back many times.

My husband and I attended a private event for the all-star game here. We were greeted at the door with drink options, selected our own seating, and roamed the various food stations to fill our plates. My favorite was the s'mores station. We had so much fun bring entertained by both the bar staff and then later Jennifer Nettles. It... More

Nashville offers different experience, and we almost miss The Wild Horse Saloon because it looked too commercial from the outside. I am glad we walked in just to see, and ended up having dinner, taking in a country line dancing lesson and a great live band! As in most of Nashville, the friendliness of the staff is noticeable from the... More

December 28th for dinner. Were told waiting was 1 hour or more but many tables remained empty during our entire time there. Hostess suggested they were simply short staffed. Place is huge with 3 or 4 levels. We could only seat on first floor where there was no table service and bar was closed there so we had to go... More

While my first experience here was pretty good the second time was not so great. The first time I was seated in a timely manner, had the smokehouse burger (which was well prepared and delicious) and the wild horse whisper whacker drink (a bit pricy but you get plenty). The second time the burger was over cooked, bacon was literally... More

We traveled here on New Year's Eve for the free concert on Broadway and stopped in here to have dinner. The staff was amazing even as busy as they were and had people lined across the street waiting to get in! The hostess with the dark hair and shaved on the side, I think she said her name was Kayla,... More

A fun place if you're looking for the "stereotypical" Nashville line-dancing bar. It seemed a little gimmicky to me. It's definitely not the place you're going to find raw talent in terms of musicians, but it's still a fun place if you want to dance and have a few drinks. The food was surprisingly good. Definitely try the BBQ Nachos.

Fun place with great music and amazing food. I almost didn't pay the after 6 pm cover because it seemed weird to pay a cover to have dinner...but it was worth it. I really loved that it is family friendly so I could introduce my 13 year old to the country scene. Again...food was amazing. Brisket was incredibly tender. Pork... More

Like all establishments we were "carded" upon arrival; the checkers were the least friendly of any establishment! Glad we didn't leave, the live band was very good and our waitress was attentive! We enjoyed the memorabilia and music. To keep us entertained while the band was took a break, line dancing lessons were provided. We didn't eat, but had a... More
