    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.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008VIP
    Dined on 8/24/2014
    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.

    The food was just ok, nothing too special or outstanding. Plus $10 for a watered down "Grand Mimosa" was a bit much. Crowd was really loud and boisterous for a late Sunday morning. Good atmosphere made up for what the food lacked.

    We were staying at the Hutton so it was a short walk to the Row. Excellent drink and homemade comfort food coupled with pleasurable live music. Loved the pickle flight. Hot chicken was good (my first time having it). Biscuits were nicely served a little doughy inside, but with tasty accompaniments. Looking forward to returning and trying breakfast

    About of townera, this was a nice alternative to theore touristy downtown. We ordered the traditional southern dishes, fried pickles, BBQ, hot fried chicken. All was fresh and tasty but not knock your socks off dining. We sat in the dining area but may have preferred the outside area where they were playing live music

    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!!

    The food is not outstanding, but is good, solid, Southern bar food. I had the fried green tomato burger and my boyfriend had the spicy friend chicken. But this is a great place to go for a meal in Nashville, it has a historical background in Nashville's music row, has a lot of tasty local beers (and not quite so local, too!) and all the servers are fun, friendly, and attentive. There is live music every night, so it is a bit loud in the actual restaurant (loud for a dinner conversation, that is), but we sat outside and enjoyed the best of both worlds, i.e. we could hear the music and could still chat comfortably!

    And worst service in Nashville. Where to begin, way overpriced, weakly poured drinks made this experience hard to stomach. Food was strange.... The smallest wedge salad ever made and without blue cheese dressing, really? a vinegarette was used instead. The fried catfish was so heavily battered, the crust would fall off after you cut it. Terrible, unfriendly and unsmiling servers and a manager who looked like a skinhead. Peach cobbler was terrible. Water tasted unfiltered, which means it was heavily treated tap and smelled. Won't go back to eat or drink here. But the live music was classy and very good made the choice not completely terrible. As a warning to other out of towners.... Money was wasted here tonight. Only go here for the music.

    Hostess never informed us there was an outside area. Saw it as we were leaving and thats where everyone was. No one was inside because it was beautiful outside, would have liked to have sat outside but hostess never even asked us if we would like that. The waiter, Brandon, made us feel very rushed and always tried to push the most expensive thing on us regardless of if it was better or not. We felt mislead.

    Went as a recommendation from a friend while visiting Nashville. We stayed at a nearby hotel and went once for dinner and came back a couple nights later for late night drinks.

    We happened upon this place and had a nice meal. Good BBQ, fried okra, cheeseburger, hot chicken, Fun Southern menu items and fun Nashville musician theme. The only problem was it was really hot in our booth and the antler chandelier hung so low I thought someone (likely the waiter's) eye would get poked out.

    This was our second brunch at The Row, and it was not a good experience. Our food took a long time to arrive - the server said the kitchen was "backed up". When it did arrive, my omelette was over cooked - omelettes should be yellow, not brown - and the peppers were not left out, as I had asked. I would have sent it back but we didn't have time to wait. My husband's hot chicken was so-so and looked pretty greasy. The server was pleasant and did keep our drinks filled. Wish the food had been better!

    We were celebrating a friends retirement, just three of us. Our server was attentive, helpful and very accommodating! This was my first time there, we had a booth (it was comfortable) and I loved the vibe and the prices. Can't wait until fall to sit outside - too hot for me, now. I've told several people about it and posted it on my FB business page. I don't have much time to go out to dinner or have drinks with friends but I've added The Row to my list of places. I hope to try breakfast one day soon. We ate - the glazed salmon, bourbon sweet potatoes, mac and cheese, greens, deviled eggs and bacon con queso/chips, banana pudding and drink loads of white wine.

    I live in Nashville, but never heard of the row until I saw it on open table. The food was okay, nothing to write home about. I got the row balls as an app, hot chicken with collards for my entree, and a tequila cocktail. The row balls and my cocktail were good, but my hot chicken wasn't as good as I was expecting. Our server was polite, but in an insincere way. The restaurant was not very busy and i went in a Saturday evening. After dining I could see why it wasn't very busy! I don't think I will be returning.

    We visited The Row for the first time on Friday, 6-6-14 It has a large patio with bar style seating, which has a few too many seats for comfort. There is a small stage and we were lucky to hear some incredible up-and-coming talent. Food quality and portions are good. The service is sporadic and non-attentive. We sat across from a couple that were visiting the states and Nashville for the CMAs. The make sever never brought their flatware and the male customer had to go to the bar three times to try to get forks. Half of their meal was consumed using their fingers. (I was so embarrassed.) I chalk this experience up to a busy night and perhaps a lack of staff. We will give it one more shot before scratching it off the list.

    I had the Row Benedict and it was very tasty. The menu is interesting and I want to go back in order to try some other entrees.Nice ambience and a clean place. My only complaint is that they were short on chairs for outdoor patio seating. But we got a nice booth near the large breezeway that opens to the patio. So overall a very pleasant experience.

    I love going to the Row for brunch or lunch. Especially if you like an earlier brunch-- I like 9:30-10:00 seating-- and they open at 9. Parking is plentiful which really is a factor in this area of town, and the food is always good. I think the bloody mary bar and drinks (including at-the-table French press coffee) are outstanding. The weather was nice and we were able to be seated outside immediately.
