    Conveniently located inside the Renaissance Hotel, we chose this restaurant for lunch before going to a 2:00 show at TPAC. Even though our party of 7 was seated in an out-of-the way table - behind the bar, we enjoyed good service and good food. Prices were reasonable. Nothing stood out as spectacular, but we would visit it again for a leisurely meal before a show. Plus, they take reservations, which is unusual for many restaurants in the area.

    The perfect spot to grab a bite before catching a show at the Ryman just a short walk away. Loved loved loved the chicken wings!! The meatloaf was too rich for me. Overall great atmosphere and definitely an instagramable moment with the Johnny Cash wall of pictures. I will be going here again and would recommend.

    Made reservations for my husband's birthday and was happily greeted by the hostess when we arrived, seated promptly, and received excellent service for the duration of our visit. The food is incredible! Do yourself a favor and order the pickled deviled eggs. Highly recommend!

    I really enjoyed the food but the waiter told us that the breakfast buffet would be “way faster” than ordering from the menu. We got the check and for the two of us it was $80. They don’t put the price of the buffet on the menu which is very frustrating. Just be aware of pricing! But other than that it was overall fine.

    It was a quiet night when we went (during prime time of the CMA fest). It wasn’t crowded/noisy at all. Food was absolutely delicious. We had the Alabama Yardbird & the Snapper with a side of the potato salad. Everything was great, would highly recommend!

    Service and food were good. Slightly overpriced in my opinion. $18 for one little mimosa was a tad much. The buffet was delicious and the omelet chef was welcoming, cheerful, and skilled.

    There were 6 of us on Mother’s Day. We had reservations, though half the tables were empty, we shouldn’t have needed them. The server had no idea what they had available for drinks, even left twice to check if they had what the people in my party were requesting. I read online that they had bottomless mimosas, but she said they didn’t do that. Honestly, I think there was a language barrier and she didn’t understand English when I was trying to order. She said she was just going to bring me a bottle of champagne and a glass of juice and I could make it myself. Tired of trying to explain myself, I said that’s fine. She then brought me a champagne glass half full of what I can only assume is a mimosa. We were all very confused! I notified them ahead of time we had dietary restrictions, but when I asked what was in some of the foods all 4 servers stared blankly at me, then at each other, spoke to each other in another language and then one of them disappeared. I was told he was going to ask the kitchen. I stood there for about 5 minutes and when he came out, he told me the only thing I was “safe” to eat is macarons. The “flat fee” for brunch was $69-

    Underwhelming. Lights super bright as if they were closing. Music barely heard. Waited at host desk for 6 minutes before greeted. Ambiance blah. Greeted by not one but two servers. Both asked for drinks, both asked for apps, zero communication between the two of them. Had to let the guy know, we already ordered from the gal. Out of the wine we ordered. Out of the appetizer we ordered. Then the wine we ordered came out after the appetizers.. that we ordered at the same time. Brussels were decent, great flavor. Cornbread Madelines bland. Ordered the steak. Potatoes, tomatoes and steak desperately needed salt. Steak cooked perfectly. No check back for satisfaction. Disappointing for the price point.

    Mediocre food, Brussels sprouts over fried beyond recognition, roasted potato salad was warm potatoes with a dollop of mayo, no salad or seasoning. Meatloaf was unremarkable, bbque sauce provided only flavor. Overall Overpriced. Good beer selection and excellent cocktails. Service was polite but slow.

    Food had some great dishes, and some not great. Recommended: Brussels, Big Fig Burger, Pimento Cheese and Crackers. Not Recommended: Steak and Potatoes, Deviled Eggs, Alcoholic Beverages (Gin Martini & Long Island) We had issues with our Nashville hot chicken wings being forgotten about, the other order of wings came out and when they came out were told they were out of peach to go with the wing sauce (but didn't ask before hand if it was okay), we also had a big issue with the service from the manager. We had a coworker who was needing to leave early and they separated her bill from the group. Then when we tried separating the rest of the bills they said they were only able to split it 4 ways due to their system not allowing more than that. When we asked how our coworker was able to split hers the manager lied and said the waitress rung it in separately than ours. That is not true as we all ordered together and she didn't request a separate bill till after the food came out. He got hostile when we told him that was incorrect and said well that's just how our system is, instead of trying to help with the solution. We ended up splitting the bill with multiple cards but honestly we will not be returning to this restaurant. Needs better staffing, management, and professionalism.

    The service was absolutely horrifying. Our waitress was rude, forced us to order even though we told her we were not ready (it was bizarre!), and she didn’t even know what a basic drink was that was listed on the menu. We ordered and she kept saying they didn’t have anything on the menu either. We paid over $560 for drinks and food and tipped accordingly and will not ever be back due to how rude this woman was. She also overcharged us for things we didn’t order and when we asked for it to be taken off she said “I’ll just bring you another drink and you can pay for that” when the drink I was drinking were cheaper than the charges that were added. None of it made any sense! Absolutely disturbing. My birthday was ruined due to this sad situation that could have been remedied with some kindness. 10/10 do NOT recommend

    Unfortunately we waited 35 minutes to have our food order taken when we decided it was time to go. I was worried that we might not be eating for another hour or hour and a half if the kitchen was that backed up too. It was clear the waiter was busy and possibly the only one serving all the tables. I don't necessarily fault him. He never stopped moving. But if that's the case then either a manager steps up, someone comes out from behind the bar or you teach all of the people who were cleaning tables to take orders. Do something on the fly... We counted like 4 different people cleaning tables...Unfortunately this just was kind of a disaster first experience here. We want businesses to succeed. We wanted to spend our money. Hopefully this was just a crazy evening and doesn't happen often.
