Stop by one of the historic bars in the area.
Apr 2021
Went there on a Tuesday night, no line to enter (If there is a line, go around back where there is rarely a line). Bartenders were friendly, beer was cold. We did not have any food. Unfortunately the band was a whole ther story. It was unfortunate that the 4 person band could have been better is the female singer was any good. Don't let this stop you from going into this Nashville spot. This is one of many great bars in the area.

Great music

Visited Tootsies two different times over my trip to Nashville. Outstanding music and wonderful home-town feel bar. I like that I feel like I am supporting local and not a celebrity.

We stopped in here two or three times on our visit to Nashville. Great staff and full drinks. Get there early with your teens.

Everything was good until the bartender served us
Mar 2021
We waited in line to get into this place but once we were in we wished we would have passed. We were there on 3/18/21. We were seated on the 2nd floor. The blonde bartender had an attitude from the beginning.( the one in the picture behind the bar ) While taking our order, it was as if she didn’t want to be there. We asked for a separate check and she rolled her eyes and just walked away. Each time we went to the bar to order another drink (she never returned to see if we wanted anything else), it was as if we were removing her from her private life. We actually watched as SHE had someone kicked out of the bar because they called HER out on HER attitude. This may be some iconic establishment but it is NOT worth coming here when they have someone like that representing the business. She has zero customer service and I will not return here just because of her. It was not a single incident. We watched her attitude with every other patron as well. Do yourself a favor, you paid good money to travel to Nashville for a good time, this place WILL ruin your whole outlook on “honkey tonk” bars, so just skip it. There are PLENTY of OTHER bars with GREAT customer service.

Overrated

There are other honky tonk bars on Broadway so skip this one. Horrifying experience! Overcrowded and no enforcement of the covid rules. Loud obnoxious customers and band!! Run to the hills from this one!!!

Unprofessional

I don’t usually write a review, but I felt I had to warn anyone who may be planning on visiting this place anytime soon. I had very high expectations with this one, and was sadly VERY disappointed in the behavior of the staff. Granted it is strict due to Covid, but I was happily dancing and singing along in my seat with my group when a worker brought up another group to our table and told us we had to leave, that our table was now the other groups. Confused and unaware that we were “breaking their rules”, we tried to figure out what the problem was. Apparently I was “too drunk” because I was cheering on the band and singing along. (Also to clear the air I was feeling good but definitely not drunk! And far from wreckless!!) things escalated and the waitress was EXTREMELY unprofessional and dropped the F bomb to everyone in our group multiple times and then proceeded to slam our food we had ordered prior to being kicked out on our table saying “here’s your fu$ki*ng food!!!” It ruined our entire evening and experience. If you are looking for a more fun and professional staff, head over to legends!

good atmosphere

Nice place to listen to music and the staff was awesome and friendly. The dueling stages could make listening difficult as we sat near the stairs between venues.

The food had good portions but was so so fair. Though we only had appetizers.

great place to listen to music

I love this place! It is like a famous hole in the wall place! Lots of pictures to look at on the wall, lots of notes on the tables/walls (which we contributed to). Due to covid, they allowed families into the bar so we were able to just sit back and enjoy the music with our younger kids while our older kids were able to enjoy a drink or two. I can't wait to go back!

Great atmosphere, but...
Dec 2020 • Couples
4 of us sat for a few hours and enjoyed the great live music and general vibe of the place. Our waitress was great. The bill was not so great. With each drink comes a plate of 4 French fries and a few tator tots that we did not order. We thought it was funny they kept bringing them and assumed it was a perk like peanuts at a bar. They are not free and you are charged $5.50 every time along with a customer service fee at the end. We paid $176 for cold French fries and tator tots that we never even ordered. We had a blast but we won't be back.

Quick Lunch
Oct 2020
Stopped into Tootsie's on the advice of a friend for a quick lunch before heading out to the airport. Pretty quiet in terms of other patrons, but two bands were performing. One up front and one up one level in the back. Sat at the back bar and had a good burger and fries. Bartender was friendly and service quick. Kind of cool to read all of the "graffiti" on the walls and the many pictures of musical performers. They also have a roof deck. Undoubtedly a very popular place in the evenings.
