Best poboy around. Like I was told before my first time, don't worry about looks don't ask questions, just go eat there. Love when I'm near there at lunch time!

Disgusting, poor quality food at a fairly high price. Spit my food in a napkin due to it tasting like sewage.

Of course my husband had to try the PoBoy and I had to try a Catfish type dish... my mom devoured her food before I could get a photo! The food was prepared quickly and the cook was a sweetheart. The servers were polite and courteous. The menu was spot on, whatever was featured on shows had a label on... More

I've lived in Nashville 24 years and Bro's is an institution in this city. My husband and I had not been there in a while so we stopped by today for lunch. Since our last visit (it's probably been two years) not only have the prices skyrocketed, the food has greatly declined. We love authentic Cajun food but something has... More

Sorry you had a bad experience. My food is prepared and seasoned the same way it has been for years. We changed the cornbread and people enjoy them. For my catfish, I still buy from my Fisherman and I trim and cut all my catfish which I happen to be the only restaurant in this region that serves fresh catfish.... More

Bro's is a must if you enjoy authentic Cajun food. A family endeavor and you can tell they love what they do. The catfish bites were incredibly light and well seasoned. The crawfish etoufee is delicious and filling.

We stopped in for lunch on a friend's recommendation. Not a large crowd but friendly service. The jambalaya was very tasty and the Cajun sandwiches were top notch. I liked the lack of pretension and casual atmosphere. On the downside I never got my corn bread and things were a little messy. We will be back and we would recommend... More

Wonderful authentic Cajun food and very casual atmosphere. Be sure to tell Mr. and Mrs. Breaux how much you enjoyed your meal; you'll find them in the kitchen, which is open to the eating area.

Featured on Food Network, Bro's Cajun Cuisine is the best Cajun food in Nashville. Today I enjoyed the gumbo- tasty sausage, tender chicken, a variety of vegetables in a rich roux, served with fluffy rice. A little bit spicy and a lot wonderful. My husband had red beans and rich with spicy Cajun sausage. There was plenty of it to... More

We were somewhat prepared for the experience, after reading many reviews. Small place with...ahem...character. We ordered a couple samplers and the kids all found something they liked. Crawfish were nice and big. Price was fair. Location was convenient as we had just visited the Parthenon. Overall, not outstanding imho but a welcome break from the good but ubiquitous barbecue joints

Hard to find but look for small boat out front!! Nothing fancy but quick, good service and very friendly!!! Our soft shell crab and shrimp po'boys were excellent. The owner sat down and visited with us for quite awhile. Really enjoyed this place!!!!
