A welcome relief from the noise of the Broadway honky-tonk scene. Interesting beer selection, brewed in-house. Very good bar food. Bartender managed to keep up with a crowded bar. There was a substantial wait for a table, so we elected bar seats. That worked out well. Recommended.

Server was fairly non-existent. In fact, my husband found him on the other side of the wall chowing down on his own lunch during his service time. Sorry, but when you have a load of customers waiting for stuff, you service them. Gluten free is a joke here, don't even try. When I asked about it he responded that everything... More

Went here before a concert on a Saturday night. Very crowded so thankful to have a reservation. Typical pub food, I had the Baja chicken burger which was very good. Others at the table were satisfied with the Cajun pasta and fish tacos. Once seated, it took a bit to get drinks from the bar, but overall the service was... More

First time in Nashville and don't know why I haven't been there before. There was several things going on in Nashville this weekend and the town was hopping. We went in the restaurant hoping for a quick bite before the concert. There was a short wait and we were sitting on the outside patio. It was fun watching the crazies... More

We went here right before we caught our flight and it was a nice "linner" my daughter had the Bacon Mac n Cheese and we both thought that was very good! We were in a rush so we didn't get to sit down and enjoy our meal but it was still very good.

This is located right on Broadway and close to the action. There was a 15 minute wait for two of us to be seated. The service was ok but nothing above average and the hostess was quite unfriendly and disinterested in being there. The food was ok but again nothing to rave about and was average. Considering all the other... More

Server was super slow and food was luke warm. We never received silverware and had to rob that and ketchup off the table next to us. The only good thing about the visit was the IPA we had, but still not worth the 20 min wait to pay. We were here at 3 on a Friday and probably won't come... More

I said no service as opposed to slow service, because we literally could not get someone to come to our table. After 10 minutes, I went to the bar and ordered a couple beers. Ten minutes later, my girlfriend grabbed a menu from the hostess stand in the hopes that someone would eventually happen upon us and take our order.... More

The six of us started at the bar with a couple of drinks before being seated for lunch. They gave us a vibrating disc that would inform us when our table was ready. Our waiter, Grant, was wonderful and very attentive. It was fairly busy being that it was the weekend, but he did a great job of stopping to... More

Never in my life have I been disrespected by a restaurant staff or management. I will never come back to this establishment. They are in the business of servicing the customer and not disrespecting them. Not sure what the lady name was, but if I was the owner I would have gladly walked her to the front door and mailed...
