In Nashville for a few days and wanted a great steak. Picked based on reviews. We grew up in Chicago area and have been to some excellent steak places downtown. I had the filet and my husband had the 20 oz rib eye and we...had salads and Mac and cheese. The steaks were very good, the rib eye was better than the filet. Mac and cheese was ok and salads were really good. Drinks were good and plenty strong. We both felt that this place has Morton’s prices but not quite as good and the service was definitely not on par with a Ruth Chris or a Morton’s. We are used to excellent service at a place like this and although our waiter was very nice, the level of service was just ok.More

Even though the place was booked, we were lucky to get a seat at the bar. Had some wine and a gluten free dessert. Great service and friendly bartenders!

We have to give full marks to the décor and ambiance of this place. Staffs were all great. Only that fish dishes were not as good as meat dishes

We went during ‘COVID’ times so no restaurant really has the same atmosphere as they normally would. But the food was great, wine options were great & service was great too.

The food here was really good. The drinks were strong and the atmosphere was pretty cool. Servers were very friendly and accommodating. We went as a group of six and had a reservation so we were seated pretty quickly. We had the local meat &...cheese plate to start. All of us had the bone-in ribeye (split between 2 people for each of the steaks), which was really good. We would recommend medium or medium rare for that to really appreciate the flavors in the steak. We got a variety of sides...Mac & cheese, Brussels sprouts (definitely order this!), and potato purée. For dessert, they were out of the chocolate torte and the crepe brûlée 😟, so we ordered an apple crisp. It was tasty...good choice for a lighter dessert.More

All I can say is WOW! My husband and I were looking for a place with outdoor seating for our anniversary dinner. Boy did they deliver! I had the lamb shank and my husband had a steak. Both were delicious. However, the stars of the...show were the side dishes and appetizers. We had grilled oysters and short rib. Both were really flavorful and well prepared. The Hoppin john, flash fried broccoli, and squash with parsnip purée were outstanding!! We also caught happy hour drinks. Had old fashions. The service was amazing as well. We felt very safe and well taken care of. We would definitely recommend this restaurant!!More

While on vacation we decided to check out this spot as it was close to our hotel on a cold night. I’m so very glad we did. The food was amazing. Our steaks were excellent as well as our Mac & cheese. The venue was...beautiful and the staff was very efficient and friendly. I will definitely recommend to others.More

Excellent dinner. Filet was wonderful. Margarita was perfect! We had no wait at all even on a Saturday night. Our waitress did a great job explaining the dishes as well.
