“A bold step for a traditionally "asleep after 6 town."”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014 via mobile

Have been coming to Nashville for 6 years on New Years and Spring Break. Jan 2 is our anniversary and an " our time" occasion. The Spring Break is for the the kids. The experience has always been great and we keep coming back. But.... The one thing I have noticed every time is the city folds up at 5 - 6. That is where the Ordinary, now called the Out of the Ordinary comes into play. We visited there 4 times in 3 days. Food was great and service was excellent. Their game plan for an eatery / entertainment establishment is a bold move for a new place but just what the town needs since the "Lil Opry" may or may not happen, this place is worth a visit especially on the weekends when they will start their music specials.

“Ok experience but overpriced”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

We were attracted by the Arthur Murray dancing which was fun and unique. The space in the restaurant is perfect for that type of event. However, despite a friendly waiter (even though he seemed to get lost leaving us waiting for food and dessert) the chicken piccata came with half a chicken breast and was very bland. The vegetable of the night was broccolini. Also bland. The steak which my wife ordered was good but it came served on a bed of lettuce which cooked the steak down and took away from the steak itself. The prices were high for what we got. Probably a place you should stick to a burger but even that was overpriced at $12.

Thank you for your 1st review. We are sorry that you felt the experience was just 'OK'. We strive everyday to create a unique, fun, valued, satisfying experience...and we obviously failed.
The Arthur Murray event was FREE to the public and a 'FREE' buffet was set-up for ALL to enjoy. The 'lettuce' is used a a garnish and was only meant to add color to the presentation. We have addressed this issue. Our Hickory Burger, the most expensive on the menu is $12.00, this is a very large meal with 1/2 pound of 'Choice' beef, onion rings, cheese, bacon, barbecue sauce and a pile of our house seasoned french fries. Again we apologize for not providing a 'valued' experience. Sincerely.

“if you are hungry go somewhere else”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

We stopped for lunch with very few people in the restaurant. Service was horrible. I am a patient person but I almost walked out. Food was just ok. Spent almost as much for lunch as an excellent dinner at hob nob the night before. Should have gone to Artists Co.lony.

“Amazing evening!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

The experience was divine! We were lucky enough to see the Sinatra show while visiting Brown County. If looking for a holiday treat I would certainly recommend this activity. I enjoyed a nice Salmon dinner and the server was ever so polite and attentive to our needs. The desert was just delicious, the folks in the kitchen know what they are doing in there. Hats off to the knew owners, it is very different from the old days, the work and care that has gone into this establishment is just lovely. Keep up the good work all, we look forward to next visit, I hear the wings are amazing!

“Ok..Expensive for the quality.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Even asking about what items were gluten-free, husband was served a BBQ sauce that apparently had a rue base and contained flour. We also think the burger had fillers and he was ill all night and into the next day. Food was ok, but expensive for Nashville. Desserts were $6.00 and I could tell the peach cobbler I had was frozen at some point. Tasted freezer burned. Not somewhere we would probably eat again. Server, Levi, was very good though.
