Nice supper club atmosphere. Prices a bit high. There was a great band performing the night we stopped over.

John A's is consistent. Great choice of food! Cold beer.
We have spent Thanksgiving and New Years holidays here as well as regular food stops. Always great food- wonderful traditional Thanksgiving meal and New Years has great food and party favors. Live music starts at 8:00.
John A, original owner of the Nashville Palace and former employer of Randy Travis, is usually in his corner with his group of friends. There are numerous celebrity sightings and yes, we have seen Randy Travis there as well.
Daily food specials available and good Happy Hour prices on drinks and appetizers.

We were a little sceptical about this Restaurant at the beginning, however it turned out to be the only available choice for a place to have a Thanksgiving Dinner - WOW, what a great Suprise...Customer Service was a Top Notch, Food was Great and they even had a Live Music...I really liked the Ribeye, my wife loved the Chicken livers and my dad really liked the Cat fish dinner...Absolutely amazing! Great location, great food and very hospitable people ! We would definitelly be back !

We ate at John A's three times while in Nashville. There is plenty of the tasty fried stuff on the menu, but there are a lot of other choice also.
Nothing fancy, just good food and great service. The entertainment was also excellent and were onstage each time we dined. This was a great choice for us as by the time the much advertised venues downtown get started, it is our bedtime. Maybe that's because we are in our 70's and long since retired.

Was just looking for a bite to eat. And ask a local where was a good place to eat? He said "John A's" without hesitation! So we had to go try it out. What
A pleasant surprise. Great little classic country throw back place! The staff was outstanding,the food fantastic, and the atmosphere awesome! prices very reasonable. The house band wonderful. The place was decorated in
Classic country star's pictures autographs. But most of all the customer's
were country entertainers,
From all generation's.
This is a place you need to go for a classic time.
loved it.
