Diner Reviews
  • "The Tippler was a new find! The ambiance was really nice. . . the menu wasn't very extensive, but that is because they make everything from scratch and in house. . . what we did have, crab dip and duck-fat french fries was delicious though. Just a little hard on the stomach (very greasy!) So don't expect to get a healthy meal when you get here!"

  • "I really liked the Tippler. The atmosphere was great and our server was Wonderful! He was funny and attentive. But I was disappointed in the food. The crab dip was really good and the drinks were great. But I ordered the Pineapple marinated Hanger Steak and it was just ok. The ends were even kind of burnt (probably due to the sugar in the marinade). The potatoes it came with had no seasoning. To have such a limited menu and for the price I expect the food to be great. I will go back for drinks but I probably won't ever go back for dinner."

  • "Great atmosphere. Service is killer. Very friendly staff. They know just how much attention to give. Drinks/craft cocktails were great. Very tasty. But......the food is just not there. Very bland and mostly under seasoned. They have the makings of a great little menu, but if it's going to be great, they need to really work on it in the kitchen."

  • "My wife and I ate here 6 months ago and had what we thought was some of the best food we tasted in Nashville. Upon our return, we discovered the menu had changed...gone were the best scallops I ever ate and the Caesar salad lost all of it's flavor. We had friends join us and we all loved the atmosphere, but the food did not hold up to what we had told them in advance. Thankfully, the black bean hummus appetizer was excellent ... and the drinks were great. Very knowledgable bartender. WOULD GO BACK IN A MINUTE FOR DRINKS, but wish they returned to the old menu."

  • "Grt, energetic, hip restaurant that u don't want to miss out on! The skirt steak was wonderful and can't go wrong w/ any of the apps on the menu! The menu doesn't have a huge selection but the restaurant is willing to work w/ u if u wanna mix it up! We booked an early dinner reservation (6:30) and ended up staying til 3am! Yikes! Needless to say, we had a ton of fun and will be going bk! Grt spot for dinner and party afterwards! Make sure u visit down stairs for dj and dance post meal!"

  • "Love the atmosphere, waiter was very friendly. Great choice of sparkling wines by the glass. Menu is very limited but the food is delicious. We were a little disappointed this time, though - they did not offer a dinner/side salad, only a Caesar. So I ordered the Caesar, which did not come. When our dinners were served, my hangar steak was on a bed of Caesar salad instead of the mashed potatoes and green beans described on the menu. They did give us a break on the bill because of their mistake."

  • "My husband and I enjoyed the experience. Food was good and service was attentive. Cocktails were nice but a bit pricey $10. A very nice atmosphere. Convenient location with valet parking"

  • "So this was a great find. We had a great meal and great drink experience. I would definatelly suggest this to anyone. However, we did have one issue to be aware of. Basically, they brought out our salad and entree out at the same time and really found nothing wrong with it. Granted they don't usually serve appetizer salads but it still was a bit of a bummer that they came out at the same time. Overall though, GREAT FOOD and drinks."

  • "Tippler is recognized as a wonderful bar but do yourself a favor and skip the dining portion. Food was lackluster and portions were small."
    Dined on 2/18/2014
  • "I'm not sure if the Tippler is focused more on the bar scene and gearing towards the younger crowd (because the bar was fabulous) with it's late night menu and fancy drinks, but if it wants to keep people coming around, it needs to work on its food. I had the shrimp and grits and it was very bland. Even though it had fried okra and mushrooms in it, It tasted like I was eating marinara sauce from the jar. There was waaayyy too much sauce on it and it was a very strange combination of things. Plus, the shrimp came on a skewer and they were overcooked. It was just bad all the way around. My boyfriend had the burger and fries and he said it was just "okay" The food wasn't great but I'd go back to try out their late night menu and drinks."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "The actual venue is awesome. Nice set up and ambiance is fun and fitting for Nashville. The food leaves something to be desired. The chicken was dry, the salmon was overlooked, and the burger was not worth the price. The place has potential but I personally could of cooked better at home and saved the thirty dollars. If you're going to ask for a somewhat pricey dinner you have to deliver and this place did not. There are multiple other places in Nashville you can get your money's worth for but the Tippler is not one of them."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "I do not know what the hype is all about. We gave the Tippler a second chance after going there for drinks and had an Old-fashioned made with Sprite. Our second experience, the drinks were great this time, however once we were seated it took forever to get a server to take our order. The food was mediocre at best. The steak was good, but nothing better than what I could get at an Outback Steakhouse. Not worth $28. And if you are going to put Chicken Biscuits on your menu in the south, they better rock, not taste like rocks."

  • "great concept...changing management...short transition...give them a try."

  • "My husband and I had reservations to dine with another couple who, unbeknownst to us, invited three others to join us. We did not have a reservation for so many people and there were no tables left in the dining area to accommodate us all. The management could have easily left it at that, but instead they opened their private dining room upstairs to us last-minute and assigned us a server. It was not a convenient situation for the restaurant nor the server (up and down those steps all night!), but they went above and beyond to make sure we had a pleasant dining experience. The food, cocktails, and service were wonderful. We will definitely be back!"

  • "The waiter harassed my friend about her license when it was her 21st birthday making it a really bad beginning to the night. I even spoke with the restaurant beforehand about bringing out any type of dessert with a candle and they seemed very unreceptive to making it a special night. If I come back, it will not be in a large group."
    Dined on 1/20/2014
  • "The restaurant is beautiful. So detailed I could look at it all day. The side dishes were great. My $30 prime rib was barely edible, which is why I don't recommend this place. Our server wasn't too friendly either. My husband ordered a drink, which he mispronounced, and she made fun of him. Then I explained I will just have water because I am pregnant and she insulted me. Not exactly a positive experience. I don't blame the restaurant for the valet but park yourself and save the money."
    Dined on 1/15/2014
  • "This place was billed as a Gastro Pub and this place falls pretty damn short. The menu is very limited and extremely simple and boring. Steak, Chicken, salmon and a burger. We should have gone to Browns for better burgers and better fries."

  • "Attended the Vaudeville New Years event here with a group of friends, which included a special preset menu. Got the scallops, filet, and chocolate mousse dessert...all were fantastic. Read some negative reviews regarding the food before going but the New Years menu was enjoyed by all in my party. The restaurant itself was well decorated and the ambiance was exciting. People dressed the part and the burlesque dancers/fire breathers made for good entertainment. Table service was surprisingly good given the volume. After dinner we moved to the bar area which was quite crowded. Despite the crowd, we had no problem getting drinks and the bartenders were faster than most I've experienced in Nashville. Will go back in the future for sure."

  • "Tippler's been on my radar for awhile and their special themed NYE event with Music City Burlesque seemed a great chance to check them out. Nobody who worked there seemed to know how the event was going work. Dinner altogether was 'meh' and way overpriced. The scallop appetizer was the only highlight - cooked perfectly and the accompanying flavors and presentation were beautiful. The filet was boring and was overshadowed by the potatoes that came with it (yes I said potatoes). The pana cotta was very good but the brownie was cold, gross and inedible. Drinks were good but overpriced and didn't have a description on the menu. Oh and the show didn't work. Left before midnight to find someplace better to ring in the new year."

  • "We were charged $250.00 for little bit of ok food and couple beers. Than ran off our table. Meal was worth $40 and bout $20:in drinks. Would not go again"

  • "Didn't know there was a pre-fixe menu, ended up paying 110 / person. We had a 6:30pm reservation and we didn't get seated until 7pm. Salad was extremely small and underdressed, bouillabaisse had about 5 clams and mussels, 3 of which weren't open, steaks weren't prepared properly and dessert was just not good. Didn't ask us if we wanted coffee and almost wanted to rush us out. Party didn't start until about 10pm. It was advertised as a burlesque party but we were only able to watch the VIP room on TV with performers very occasionally making appearances in the overcrowded front room. Music was rarely played, with periods of no music and some songs were even played twice! Everyone left after midnight."

  • "$15 Chardonnay? Seriously? $4/glass too much. Hummus. It was a portion fit for my four-year old. $2 too much. Chicken sub veg of day (green beans and corn). Green beans and corn is not a foodie pairing. And it was so buttery and salty, we could not eat it. $2 too much. We could not believe that we spent $100 on this dinner. My wife started crying she was so upset. We chose to not come back instead of chatting with mgmt. I may be back only for drinks if there is a company event that I am requires to attend."

  • "Came here with my girlfriend for our anniversary. Our server was energetic and happily answered all of our questions. Our water glasses never stayed empty more than a minute. The food and drinks really didn't meet our expectations, though. The cocktails were fine but not really worthy of their $10+ price tag. The appetizers we got were bland enough for me to not want to explore the entrees. The location has lots of potential, and the vibe is good, but a restaurant/bar really needs to be food and drink forward."

I need to go back and try the french toast, made with my favorite cereal of all time, Honey Bunches of Oats! I love the unique and tasty menu!"

  • "We were looking for a tasty, slightly-fancy dinner location. Music City Tippler had a wonderful and diverse drink menu - our waitress was incredibly knowledgeable. She gave detailed descriptions of multiple dishes and drinks - not your run-of-the-mill "Oh, it's great" response when you ask for their opinion. The dining area was comfortable and an neat mix of old library-decor and a few TVs with the game on. The food was excellent - wonderful flavors with a beautiful presentation! My friends and I have already been talking about when we're going to return to the Tippler. Definitely a new favorite!"

  • "I had a rez here on Saturday with a group. We were told when we made the rez that 5pm was the only time available. It was strange that when we left at 6:30, it was not half full. The building is decorated in a retro theme and was well done. They have a couple TV's which were nice since football was on. The drinks were pretty good. Not as good as Patterson House or 308 but not bad. The draft beer selection could have been more varied. The food looked unique on the menu, which is why we decided to go in the first place. They were out of mussels and scallops and this again was at the beginning of the evening so two party goers had to choose something else. The food was just meh. Nothing noteworthy. Sandwiches and apps were pretty bland."

  • "I was at first dismayed by the limited menu in terms of options. The waiter assisted and offered me a vegetarian option that wasn't on the menu. The food was fantastic and exceeded expectation. thanks MCT for great meal and outstanding service."
    Dined on 11/16/2013
  • "Such a beautiful interior but the food and drinks fell flat. We just wanted to have a couple of drinks and apps before heading out for the night and were under impressed. The app menu is slim pickin' for those that want to share. The drinks were hard to understand and each had something that each of us had to ask, "uh...what is that?". I felt dumber when I left. Not much room at/near the bar and the downstairs was even odder with a couch for 3. Altogether a very strange experience and probably would not go back unless things change drastically."

  • "We greatly enjoyed our dinner at the Tippler. Interesting cocktails and very good food. I was with several friends...one of them is a picky eater. She said the hummus was the first she had ever tasted that she found delicious. I had a salmon entree that was excellent. Service was very attentive. If there is a drawback it is that the tables are all very much in the open....just a sea of tables. I prefer a more cozy and private feel. Still, will happily dine there again."
    Dined on 11/13/2013
  • "Both my friend and I loved what we order (the salmon and scallops), but the service was only fair. Our wine glasses sat empty for a long time, but the waiter was apologetic about it. The appetizer (hummus) was some of the best I've ever had, but I was disappointed there was not a dessert list. Our reservations were at 7:30 and we ended up not leaving the restaurant until 10:30, and by then it was so loud we had to yell at each other across the small table even though we were as far away from the bar as you can get."
    Dined on 11/9/2013
  • "I hope this is a restaurant that actually makes it in this beautiful space. It's got some growing to do: the drinks are terrific, and the atmosphere is fun; but it seems to be drawing a post-frat scene, which I doubt is what they are going for. It's quite loud and cruise-y as a result. The menu is, right now, pretty small and unexciting, consisting of sandwiches and very basic entrees. There was one - count it, ONE - vegetable on the menu, some itty bitty asparagus (of which only the tips were edible). The duck sandwich was OK, but bread-heavy and duck-light. The hummus appetizer was better. The dinner menu needs a major overhaul if they are going to make it as a dining spot and not just a drink-and-snack date scene."

  • "I'd been to Tippler once before for drinks and apps prior to a concert, so I really wanted to go back for a meal. I took two friends (one from Chicago) there who were first timers. It was great food and prompt service. They loved the lighting and atmosphere. Great experience will have to do it again soon."
