My wife took me out for dinner and entertainment for Father’s Day. She took me to a place called House if Card’s in Nashville TN. This was an absolutely enjoyable experience with wonderful foods and exceptional service. Warning!!! No photography is allowed inside the venue. A photographer will come around to each table and take a picture and then provide the party with a high quality keepsake. Along with your meal will come a ticket to the main show. A 30 minutes show of headliner magician from around the United States. There are also 3-4 magicians that work the restaurant floor that will show you slight of hand tricks and add to the entertainment. I will not lie, the price is not for the faint of heart but it was well worth it. 2-3 hours of food and entertainment made it well worth the pricing. Thank you HoC for giving me and my wife a night to remember.

I dress quite conservatively yet the staff decided to ask me to remove my black Nike shoes; I am 50’s , black pants English Ted Baker 200$ shirt yet I am not dressed well enough for the cowboy town.

This place is from a different era - overpriced food, way overpriced drinks, some sort of stand up insulting comedy combined with basic magic. Terrible!

Avoid - it is just a Nashville tourist scam.

This place is expensive but worth every penny. Our Waitress Jenny did a wonderful job. We were there for about three hours and didn't want to leave! My wife was very happy to spend her birthday dinner there. Highly recommend this place!

We had fun and the food was great. The only issue was the dress code. The dress code is too strict. I had everything but a dress coat. We had to borrow clothes from friends. We can dress well but it was an issue to meet all the acquirement's. Everything else was fantastic. An average person can afford the experience Proper attire can be a challenge. I realize a tank top and shorts is obviously not acceptable. Just relax the dress code a little bit. Not everyone is rich. Relax the dress code a little bit and the middle class will give you money.

This speakeasy restaurant is a must do for adults while visiting. Located in a secret location, with a specific dress code. Expect to pay top $$$ but so worth it. The magicians are truly amazing, everything about this place was wonderful. The service was excellent and my friends and I definitely had a wonderful experience!
