    This was our first trip to Nashville and we saw recommendations for Bob's online. This ended up being the nicest meal we had during our stay. Staff are super friendly and very accomodating. The food was outstanding - perhaps the best filet we have had in quite a long time. Loved the fried potatoes with gravy. Dessert was wonderful. Would definitely go back if we are ever in the area again.

    We went there a bit late (8:00). We had apps and dinner and we brought a really nice bottle of wine (a 14 year old cabernet). The food was good but a step below The Southern, The Palm, Ruth’s and Morton’s and way below Kayne Prime. The service was surly and rushed. There was no evidence of anyone really caring. The waiter had no idea how to open a bottle of wine. He put the corkscrew HALF way down the cork and destroyed it. He did spent 5 minutes rescuing it and we spent the hour that we were there picking out bits of cork. Not a good experience.

    Three of us went for dinner and it was excellent. Our steaks were perfectly cooked and my filet was one of the best I have ever had. The smashed potatoes were delicious, as was the creamed spinach and the glazed carrot, and all the portions were huge. I was not a fan of the pickles and peppers that were on the table, but I'm not big on picked things. The bread was delicious though. The pecan pie was the best of the three desserts we ordered to try, and the bread pudding was the least. Our waiter, Josh, was phenomenal and very personable and made the evening even better.

    Probably the thing you were looking most forward and steakhouse is a great steak and this place has it. Sides are good but salads are lacking. The glass of bourbon is like two-for-one all the time, definitely not chinsy with the poor. I had the bone in ribeye their specialty great sear on the outside and cooked perfectly. My wife had the fillet, again perfect see year cook to perfection and not mealy as some fillets can be. The shrimp platter appetizer was as fresh as sitting on the Gulf. This is a great classic steakhouse I'm glad they are in Nashville. Our waitress Connie was particularly excellent.

    A friend was in town, staying at the Omni, so we took him to Bob's. This was one hopping place! The service was excellent - with the staff actually reading the request we'd made for a quieter setting than normal and suggesting a move from the noisy room we were originally seated in. That was awesome. The great service was accompanied by excellent food. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening. This is not a cheap place, nor did we expect it to be....located in the Omni smack-dab in downtown Nashville.....but at the same time, it wasn't crazy expensive. Prices were higher than average, but so was the food and the service. We didn't go away unhappy on any level. Would definitely return again! Great valet service as well.

    waiter John started out good but was really not very good. He said we will get you bread when he took the drink order and it never came. He knew my name when we started and then asked me when the bill came. When the bill came it sat for about 10 minutes and I could have signed it and left but he did not ask if it went on the room and the bill was not ready for a room charge. Then he forgot to give me a pen. He never asked during dinner if the meat was cooked to our liking. I think that he is over worked or has ADD

    Steakhouse - we ate steak. Rib eye and filet. Considering it was prime, the flavor wasn't what I expected. Good not great. Both were quite greasy. Maybe it was butter? The spinach salad was one of the best I've ever had. Baked potato was a smidge over cooked, but good. Chives were chopped green onion. In a restaurant like this, I'd serve the real thing. Also, had skillet potatoes with sautéed onion (very tasty) & gravy (not so much). Since gravy seemed odd addition we ordered it on the side. Glad we did. We also had asparagus which was asparagus, very skinny asparagus. Typical of a steakhouse the portions were large. As for cocktail, had a pre-dinner pomegranate martini that was excellent. Maybe it was a bit of an off night.

    My wife and I were in town for our wedding anniversary and ate at Bob's to celebrate. We got a table outside on their patio which was very nice. Our server Josh was awesome and deserves a promotion. If you go you should ask to sit at one of his tables. My wife ordered the lobster bisque soup and said it was the best she has ever had. We both got filets with asparagus and Bobs signature skillet fried potatoes. We are from Chicago and love a good steakhouse and the meal at Bob's ranked right up there with anything we have ever had. I will say it was pricey but that is what you would expect at a nice restaurant and it was well worth every penny. The ONLY problem is everything was so good we ate too much and were too full to go out.

    The food was very good and service was friendly. My bone-in KC Strip was perfectly done and very flavorful. We also had lobster mac & cheese, and it was great too. But, one of our party's steaks was completely left off our order, so it arrived long after everyone else's food. The cocktails were overpriced and sometimes just not good. I ordered a sazerac that, while generously sized, tasted nothing like a sazerac, but cost $30! Later I ordered a Macallan 25 and was shocked when it showed up on our bill for $150! I knew it would be expensive, but never expected that much (and it was definitely not a generous pour). I doubt we will return, with so many other great steak options in Nashville.

    This was a major business dinner meeting for two. Most of the food was outstanding except for a certain potato dish that came with my steak. It had cheese on it and I was not aware of this fact when I ordered. The servicer was top notch. He allowed time for the decisions and had the appropiate follow up to allow our business converstation to happen. I would definately recommend this restaurant to friends/business associates.

    I have now been to Bob's Steak & Chop House several times. I'm a steakaholic of sorts and I'm never disappointed with the food or service. When you walk through the front door at Bob's you are always welcomed with a smile from the front desk. They always make an effort to seat you at the best seat in the house. The bar staff is knowledgeable, friendly and are always making the best use of time which is important when thirsty customers are seated in front of them. The table service is always consistent, knowledgeable, and make great recommendations. They are also quick to remember past guests which always make you feel like a regular. It goes without saying that I'm a big fan of this place and I would highly recommend it to anyone.

    Bob's has replaced Flemings as my favorite steak restaurant in Nashville. First experienced Bob's at their original location in Dallas. Was thrilled when the Omni opened here at home with a Bob's. The quality is excellent. Not cheap, but on par with Morton's or Fleming's or any other fine chophouse restaurant.

    Grossly overpriced. I was with a large group and couldn't find but one chicken dish on the menu. Then the waiter discouraged me from ordering it because he said it was too hot for him. so I ate salad and left hungry. Everyone else that got an entree couldn't figure out why they had a carrot on their plate. The bread tasted good, but was so crumbly that it made a horrible mess on our clothes and the table. We will not go back, ever, not even for a special occasion. Never. Ever. For any reason whatsoever.
