    Went to eat here when a friend came to town. I had only heard great reviews so I was expecting the best and that's exactly what I got! The service was friendly and fast. Our server was very knowledgeable. I got the hot chicken and it was amazing! My friend got the country fried chicken and said it was delicious! I would definitely recommend The Row to anyone and will go back!

    The atmosphere and food definitely make this a great place for brunch. I was visiting Nashville and looking far a good brunch spot to meet friends. Although we made reservations, there was no need to, on the morning we went. Seating was spacious and comfortable. The food was amazing and quite affordable.

    My husband and I stayed at the ALoft and we were looking for a closeby restaurant to grab a bite to eat. We had the deviled eggs appetizer and if you like deviled eggs you'll enjoy this. I wasn't super hungry so just got the Cobb salad. All the ingredients were fresh and I liked th blue cheese vinegarette. My husband got the pot roast and that was delicious. Fell apart on the fork and had great flavor. Highly recommend it. Our waiter was very nice and our food came out super quick. Grant it the evening was cold and rainy so the restaurant was very quiet but still surprised at how quick we got our meals. Enjoyed our dinner at The Row and would certainly go back if we're back in Nashville.

    My daughter and I went there on Sunday morning. I had heard about their biscuit beignets and thought it was interesting. They reminded me of days long past when I would have cinnamon toast and real butter on bread toasted in the oven. When we got there, it was just after opening and very quiet. But as the morning went on - the restaurant did begin to fill. My daughter had eggs and grits (the standard breakfast). I had the eggs benedict. The grits were amazing! The poached eggs took several tries to get right, but they tried. If you are not a stickler on poached eggs (I am), I would recommend. The rest of the components were great - otherwise, I would stick with the standard fair, but be sure to include the beignets and grits!

    My boyfriend and I were in town for the Vandy vs UF game. We stopped by here on Friday for a late lunch and were not disappointed. We sat in their outdoor patio area next to the fire pit which was perfect for a chilly but nice day. We started with the row poppers which were out of this world. My boyfriend then had the brisket tacos with sweet potato mash and I had the cowboy burger with the snap beans and carmelized onions. We washed it down with some local brews from Yazoo. Overall a great place. Definitely recommend.

  • Love That Hot Chicken!

    Dined on 10/3/2014
    Apps were good: Row Poppers: bacon wrapped and fried jalapeno cheese. The Trip, bottomless nacho chips with guacamole, salsa and pimento cheese. For the entry, we all ordered the Nashville Fried Hot Chicken which was fantastic - again! I don't care for it being served on the 'spicy corncake' - that just falls apart and doesn't add anything to the dish. It is far better when served over a waffle One peculiar thing - they do not carry an assortment of Scotch whiskey. I know we're in Nashville, but our Chicago friend thought that they should at least have Dewar's or Johnnie Walker. I agree. One other point - wonderful service. We were sitting outdoors when a storm came up and they seamlessly moved everyone to an inside table.

    I had called in to ensure my reservation and check to see the serving time to make sure I would make a concert that night. I was hung up on twice and finally a new girl helped me out. I ordered the fried chicken. I wasn't impressed. It was boneless chicken tenders, not traditional fried chicken. The taste was lacking in the brussel sprouts. Definitely not that fresh. My wife had the BBQ sandwich and it was pretty good. The music was ok and the looks of the place is ok for a hangout or late night spot. Thats it...I would give it a 3 out of 5.

    A bit up the hill from the music strip, this is a great place for brunch. It's an easy walk down Broadway to get to the Frist art museum or Symphony Center if you're into that; or to the country music and boots scene a few blocks farther. Would definitely go again.

    This place is absolutely fantastic! The menu was very Nashville and very Southern but still had healthy food options for my girlfriend to enjoy. The Kale Salad was top notch! Our server was very attentive and the management seems to really care about their guests! The live music area near the bar was full of energy and great tunes from young aspiring artists from all over the place. The MC Mike Peck as very engaging and really into the music. I'd recommend this place to everyone!

    Had a wonderful time at The Row last weekend. My parents were in town and we came for both lunch and later for live music. They have some really great bands, we got to see Jesse and Noah - a real treat! Kale salad with blackened chicken was fantastic and a nice healthy twist on the southern cuisine. My father got the smokestack burger- to die for! Will definitely be back.

    A friend was visiting from Seattle and I took her here for brunch. I've been once before and the food (breakfast/brunch is all I've tried so far) is good. Best biscuits ever! Our server must have been having a bad day, though, because she wasn't very attentive or friendly. We were never checked on, never offered any warm-ups on coffee or drinks and didn't see her until it was time for the bill. Very different from my first visit when I was checked on frequently. A server named Joe, however, was very nice and answered all of our questions when our own server was MIA. He was much more attentive and he wasn't even going to get the tip! We made sure to get his name as we were leaving so I can ask for him when I go back.

    Admittedly, I was doing a search for a restaurant that could save my group from a vicious hangover before we got on flights. What we found was a restaurant with great food (and not just 'hangover food'), an outstanding beer list, and a creative cocktail menu. This is NOT just a spot for a debauched group of headaches, however. We saw couples in their rollout of bed gear to families that just got out of church. At my table we had a solid variety of food based on what each of us ordered (needed): fried chicken, a salad, and a collection of appetizers. No one left as anything but satisfied. Granted, this is one example from an out of towner, but I'd happily come back here again.

    This is the second time I have visited the Row. Same experience both times. Fun live music and a good beer list. Go for that, but don't expect fine dining. The food prices are somewhat expensive for what is delivered. Despite the enticing menu items, our meals were just OK. The fired pickles were very good, but the rest of the meal was meh. My side veggies were cold (they were out of my first veggie choice). I had a burger. I ordered medium rare. Came out almost well done and only luke warm. My spouse had a chicken sandwich that she said was edible. The service was attentive, so no issues there. We did almost get charged for an item we never ordered, but it was quickly addressed. This is not to say that The Row is bad. It is fun.

    My family was in Nashville from out of state to deliver our daughter to college for her freshman year, and we wanted a Nashville dinner/entertainment experience away from the busy downtown scene. We were so impressed with the entire experience - the food was absolutely gourmet delicious. We especially loved the brisket tacos and chicken fried steak! In addition, we opted to sit outside the bar where the music was available. The three different music acts were very enjoyable. It was the perfect evening to celebrate this important transition evening with my family!

    We recently vacationed in Nashville and dined at The Row one night based on a recommendation and its proximity to our hotel. We will definitely be back - not just for the food ... but especially for the entertainment. We saw some of the BEST music in Nashville during our 4 night stay at this location. Our daughters (aged 11 and 14) also picked this as their absolutely favourite place for the music. We have a feeling this spot will be one of the next 'it' locations in Nashville ... make sure you go since you never know who might drop in! Thanks again to the team at The Row for such a memorable evening - we loved it ... and a big shout out to Mike booking the musicians!!
