    The place looks great, the food was good, the service was good (although they do a great job of upselling you to the off menu items) - but when we received the WHOPPER of a bill all agreed we could have received the same level of food, ambiance and service for probably 1/3 less $$. The bar, on the other hand, looked like it was hopping.

    We came here on a whim before my parents went to a show at The Ryman (which is within walking distance) and had a lovely experience! The relish jar in the middle of the table was quite tasty and the service was impeccable. Bob's is a straightforward, no-frills steak place where the focus is on the cuts of meat. I ordered the New York Strip which was cooked to a perfect medium-rare. Our server, Sheldon, was so attentive and professional. He knew the menu like the back of his hand and was helpful in making our final selections. The dessert menu is absolutely fabulous and has much more to choose from than the standard chocolate cake and key lime pie offerings (although, those are there, too). We live close by and will definitely be back!

    The first thing that caught us off guard was that our waiter seemed to be rushing us. We were there to enjoy a romantic anniversary dinner and instead he was trying to get us out of there as soon as possible. On two occasions he removed plates from the table that we were still eating from. The food was good but over priced. We had the ribeye cooked medium rare and it was very tasty. They did provide a complimentary desert for our special occasion and it was amazing!

    We had dinner at Bob's for the first time and we will certainly go back. Food was amazing....and as a vegetarian, they were very accommodating and had lots of choices. Hope you get to sit in Brian's section - he rocked the wine list!!! Even shared with us how the grapes are harvested for a specific German wine we ordered.

    We went to Bob's for the first time for my wife's birthday and were greeted warmly, seated promptly. Our server, Gordon, was very helpful with the menu, and his service throughout the meal only enhanced our experience. We shared the bleu cheese salad which was fresh and crisp without being overpoweringly blue. The pecan garnish was a nice touch. My wife had the small filet while I had the bone-in rib-eye. Both were cooked and seasoned perfectly and had great flavor. The accompanying carrot (has to be seen and eaten to be believed) and the steak fries with pepper gravy sauce were nice complements. Being too full for dessert, we ordered carrot cake and key lime pie to go, which were gratis for my wife's birthday. Overall a great experience!

    I had a fabulous birthday dinner at Bob's. The food presentation was amazing, the service was friendly from arrival to departure. I really appreciated the surprise dessert that topped the night off! Fudge brownie with pecans, two scoops of vanilla ice cream, bathed in chocolate syrup with whip cream and a cherry! Thanks!!

    Pricey, but if you like to splurge once in a while and love steak, you can't go wrong with this place. We had 5 of us and everyone was happy with their order. I ordered the filet medium with the skillet potatos. Steak was cooked perfect and the skillet potatos where delicious. Hope to find another Bob's sometime in the future.

    Bob's never disappoints. The food is always delicious, well prepared, and perfectly seasoned. Their cuts of meat are great quality and always very tender and juicy. No complaints here...everything from appetizers, to entrees, to sides, and desserts was great. A few recommendations: their porterhouse is AMAZING, their creamed corn and smashed potatoes are also very good, and the brownie sundae is a great end to the meal...Yum! Also, we have never had poor service here, and the outdoor seating is great when there is nice weather. We will definitely be back the next time we visit Nashville.

    Overall a very pleasant but very expensive meal. Ambiance is very upscale, probably the best I have seen in Nashville. Wine list is extensive and expensive. Ordered the side dish fried potatoes with gravy and was totally unimpressed by the soggy potatoes with a strange taste of gravy over them. My Kansas City strip was good, my wife's filet was excellent. Outstanding service from Larry.

  • $94 steak that wasn't disclosed
    Nash
    Dined on 10/17/2014
    I am a Nashville native and tried Bobs. The waiter told us the special of a 12 ounce boned in filet. He never mentioned the price. I asked him if the meat was the same as the 12 ounce filet that I think was $48 and he said yes and that the boned in added flavor. Once again no mention of the price. So we ordered it. We ate and received the bill and the steak was $94. This wasn't Kobe this was a normal filet. Ripoff to say the least. I hope this isnt the tourist trap that gives NASHVILLE a bad name.

    Went to dinner with 2 co-workers. We all wanted a great steak, and its exactly what we got. The filet mignon was cooked perfect for all of us. I had the fried lobster with my steak as a surf and turf option and it was really delicious. Such a nice different taste. Loved it. Dessert choices were hard to make but we went with the carrot cake which was more than enough for 3 of us to share. Worth going to this great spot.

    The reservation process was easy. The restaurant itself was beyond satisfactory! The service was great as our waiter was attentive and polite. The food itself was amazing! Both the Prime Ribeye and New York Strip were cooked to perfection (both medium) and the varied cooked styles of the potatoes were above average. We also got a side of lobster mac and cheese that was a special for the night and it was beautifully creamy, cheesy and tasty.

    We have all had the hundred dollar steak, delicious and worth it's weight in gold. That is why we are in a fine steak house. It's what we expect. At Bob's however the potatoes and carrot shared the spotlight. Yes i said carrot! NEVER has a waiter taken the time to check the reservation and address me by name. The attention to detail is unprecedented. This is a 6 star dining experience.

    Found this Gem on Opentable.com when visiting Nashville on Anniversary trip. Was looking for a 4-5 star steak house and this surpassed the 5 star mark. We even had a good laugh the story behind the pickles on table(PS they were good too). Everyone there greeted us by name and made us feel important. The mixed drink list had good selection and long list of local beers to choose from. We had the 9oz and 12oz filet and they were both cooked to perfection.

    I was looking foward to having a great steak, dut to fact that Bob's is avertised as the best steak house in Nashville. I was disappointed in my steak, it was tough even though it was on the rare side. I order medium well and it came out on the medium rare side. I did make the comment about my first steak and they made me a new steak and it was better than the first one, but did not impress me at all. BoB restaurant did not meet my expectations and was overall disappointed and will not dine at this resturant next time I am in town.

    move over Kayne Prime and Palm. you have another worthy competitor in the high end steak choices. This is certainly not to take anything away form either of the other 2 mentioned, but Bob's is every bit as good. My filet was as god as I think I have ever had. highly recommended when you feel like dropping a large amount of money ... but worth paying for.

    A Steakhouse can get mixed reviews. One can up the odds for a top notch steak by only having reliable Prime sources and a kitchen that knows what they are doing. This evening came together in one of those perfect alignments. Honestly, I've never had better. I'm not excited about the sides at Bob's, but then I didn't go there to eat the sides. My 12 oz filet was sheer perfection. A Ten
