“Worst dining experience ever”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

If I could give this restaurant a 0/5 rating, I would. Had to wait more than 30 minutes for our supposedly reserved table, which defeats the purpose of making a reservation. Service was awful from the receptionist to the server. Food took more than an hour to get to us, and server just told us that the kitchen was busy. If they cannot handle a full house, they should not accept that much customers. Its more of a bar with very loud music. Food was yucky with awful presentations. This is a 'don't even bother to go' in Nashville!!!

“Outdoor patio is great for large group, too bad the food is gross”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

Beautiful setting, great drinks, friendly servers (if you don't mind wearing your salsa) but the food was really poor. Not quite sure how they are getting such good reviews?? maybe kitchen quality goes down with large groups??

“Just OK”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

Went to a Sunday evening and the place was deserted. Cabana concept was interesting and I could see how this owuld be a happening place in Friday or Saturday nights and with a group of people. Food was good, waitress very hempful with suggestions. Hostesses were snooty when we arrived and none of them even spoke or glanced up when we left, although 3 of them were standing there with nothing to do. Left a bad vibe for me- other more welcoming places in the area.

“Changes on Sunday's Trivia Night - no more BOGOF Pizza”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

Now they have a $10.00 Pizza buffet - which is a good deal, BUT the previous BOGOF was "all you can eat" as it were - they just increased their per-check average on Sunday night. Plus, you don't have any left-overs to take home. Went up a couple of times and they were having trouble keeping up with the demand, so I passed and got the blackened grouper sandwich and fries for about the same price. I think they will eventually discover that food costs will actually go up due to the fact that on trivia night, the clientel (90% college age - lots of hungry young men that can eat some pizza) stay for the duration and graze on the buffet - eating much more than they would if it were BOGOF. They did move the 2 for 1 pizza to another night.

I really enjoyed the "Shrimp & Grits" ! Good drinks, cold beer, very friendly servers and bartenders!
Can't wait to go back.
