It was Saint Patrick's Day so it was hopping, fun and energetic.
Read rating reviews, just as always, a great place to be for any occasion!
Date with my wife
The service and food during this visit to one of our favorite restaurants were greatly improved. Each of four different steak combinations ordered were perfectly cooked and tender. Our waiter, John, was outstanding. Nothing seemed to bother him and he treated us very well. We wish we could have him serve us each time. Even our drinks and desserts were perfectly prepared.
The St. Patrick’s Day band was great as was the Conservatory seating. The fried oysters were greasy and the filet was awful. The baked potato was good. The rest of the food was just okay.
I was there with my mother who was visiting from Memphis. I utilized a gift card that I received for Christmas. This was my fifth time dining at JK's. I love the ambiance but the food quality is always hit or miss. We ordered the crab cakes which were very tasty. However, my house salad with bleu cheese was very watery, as if the leaves were not allowed to dry after rinsing. The steak we ordered was significantly under-cooked and each of our baked potatoes were very dry. We ordered two additional side items, mac-n-cheese and asparagus.The mac-n-cheese was very good but the asparagus was so over-roasted that it was more like jerky.
Overall, the goal of the evening was to spend quality time with my mom, which I did. That being said, if I do not receive a giftcard, I would not willing come to JKs for a steak. There are many of other competitors in the market place that provide a much better quality of food for the same price as JKs. Just as I always enjoy the atmosphere, I find the staff are always courteous and the service is consistent across the board, however, those factors alone are not enough for me to spend my hard-earned money there when seeking a top-notch dining experience.
We were not impressed. I ordered a fillet, salmon, and shrimp plate. There were only two shrimp, a tiny piece of salmon, and a very small fillet. The salmon and filet were cooked appropriately, but there was no seasoning. My husband ordered an extra cut filet mignon and it looked about the same size as mine. The portions were incredibly small and overpriced. The steamed broccoli had no flavor and the “Sides to share” were not even a portion sized for one person. There were two tables next to us and there was a couple with a child. The couple talked incessantly and loudly, which made for a less than romantic evening on our anniversary. Thank goodness we had a gift card to use because the meal was over $150 and we don’t even drink!
I love the ambiance of Jimmy Kelly's. The service-from being warmly greeted outside the front door, to the reservation ladies, the bartender, the wait staff-was impeccable! And the food was perfectly prepared & served! A wonderful experience was enjoyed by all in our party!
This was my first visit to Jimmy Kelly's and I am a little mixed about it.
I had put in the reservation that it was an anniversary celebration and we would like a romantic table where we could sit close. The table we were placed at was upstairs, in a doorway next to the service area with noisy wait staff passing by constantly. The table was set for 2 and was so wide that we would have to yell to be heard over the noise. Obviously not meeting my expectations, we asked for another table. The second was much better, we were on the closed in patio next to the fountain at a 4 top that allowed us to sit close, hold hands and talk through out or dinner. Why couldn't we have started there?
The food was amazing! We had mussels, fillets and Creme Brulee. It was all perfectly prepared.
The wait staff, was a mixed bag. Our specific waiter seemed to be too busy. We had to pursue him to get service, however, the waiter for the next table over was very engaging and helped serve us several times.
The food was so amazing, I would go back. Next time I will request a table on the patio to begin with and I will hope to have a more engaged waiter.
Service was great. Atmosphere was good. Bland steak.
Blue cheese stuffed and bacon wrapped steak delicious!
What’s there to say except Jimmy Kelly’s is the best steak house in Nashville! Every time I’m in Nashville I make it a point to dine there. This past visit I was able to share the experience with my two daughters. Ages 24,21. Our service was excellent and the food was fabulous! I will continue to visit Jimmy Kelly’s whenever I’m in Nashville!
Our waiter Robert was fantastic.
Have to go whenever in Nashville. An old school classic.
All was fabulous! They even surprised us with dessert for our anniversary :)
Food was okay. But the prices were outrageous. If it hadn’t been for a free gift card from some we would not have gone.
We made a reservation on OpenTable (earliest opening was 8:45PM). It was my birthday celebration and the first time my Mom had ever been to Jimmy Kelly's so I wanted her to have a good experience. Problem on our end is that my Mom does not eat steak or seafood.....I asked the server if there was any way we could get grilled chicken for her (and totally understand that he said no). What I did not understand.....was the server seemed put out by our request to refill our soda. He repeatedly refilled our water glasses...but we had to ask for refills on soda and seemed displeased by our request (tone).
When we left, my Mom said... "I don't think the server liked you". For a 70 year old to say that...I think you can understand my concern. Server's name is Luke----03/10/18
We dined on Saturday 3/10. Previously we’ve experienced significant service issues, however, on this evening our server Jimmy was quite good. Also 2 different managers came by our table to make sure everything was going well. All food and drinks were delivered promptly and as ordered. The overall experience was very pleasant and we look forward to returning.
Love the ambiance! Our server, Arthur really made it a special evening. Outstanding.
Great food, great service, had a wonderful night with friends.
We went as a family of four to celebrate a birthday and had surprisingly awful service. We were seated for almost 20 minutes before even getting menus. Everything was super slow to the point of awkward. The salads were really small for the price. I don’t think our server ever smiled or even introduced himself. Our filets were good, but the sirloin had little flavor. The creamed spinach was cold and the macaroni and cheese was not at all flavorful. I’m just glad we were able to use gift cards we bought at half price so we didn’t feel quite so disappointed in the amount we paid for the sub-par experience.
For the price, it isn’t worth it. The atmosphere was great if not a little noisy due to a large party with kids but the food was overpriced and bland.
Arthur was a great waiter!! I will ask for his table next time we dine at Jimmy Kelley’s!
Everything was great food was wonderful Our waitress (Kat) was veery friendly can't wait to bring friend & come back
Ordered the 18OZ Ribeye for myself. Cost was about 39.00. Ask for medium and it was rare...purple. Was tough and not very well seasoned at all as compared to what menu described. I salted and peppered it heavily as I ate around the outside. Brought5 the center area home for our Boxer. The corn cakes were OK I suppose but I would expect a better form of bread or corn cake. Baked potato was very small. My wife had the Sea Bass and it was 42-44.00 as I recall. That's with a small house salad and nothing else. Tasted fishy and sauce was too lemony. We didnt send either back as it was already late and we didnt want to wait another half hour or so. For the pricing I would have expected better quality and seasoning/sauce on the meats OR more food for the money...
Service was wonderful. Food was outstanding. Waiter was very knowlagable about the menu and very classy.
The cuts of meat were very good and well prepared.
The setting, our server and meal were all wonderful. Isaac made our experience wonderful. Steaks were delicious. Will def be back.
The food is high quality and delicious. It is our favorite place for steak.
Awesome food & service! Loved the ambience! Great place to dine with friends & family!
Always the best. Classic
Atmosphere,service and food are always on the money. You can not beat the old school feel.
Great food, great atmosphere, wonderful staff!! This was a business/company get together, we had a private and quiet little room with a great waiter who made the dinner fun!
I will say if you’ve never been you should go you will never be disappointed
Great service and atmosphere for an adult birthday party
After seeing mixed reviews, I was hesitant to try but we thoroughly enjoyed our food and our waiter.
Always looking for a local spot for romantic night out when on vacation. This restaurant met all expectations. History, romantic, ambiance, great service, and excellent food. Will return next time we’re in Nashville
I've been going to JK's for decades, because the food is excellent. This latest visit was no exception. However, we did not get seated anywhere near our reservation time (45 minutes past), due to the large number of walkins they seated when the place first opened. I understand why people would flock there (the food is excellent) but I do think they should manage tables better based on reservations. As a result, the wait staff and kitchen ran behind all night, so we did not experience the typical great JK service to which we are accustomed.
One of my favorite in Nashville. Excellent food and always cooked perfectly. Nice cozy atmosphere. Need reservations
Our first time dining here. We had the filet & half filet & shrimp. The best filet I had ever eaten. Shrimp was great! They were huge. Definitely will be going back. Overall experience was great!
The service at Jimmy Kelly's was fantastic. All the details were taken care of. It was wonderful to have valet parking. Our steaks were very tender and cooked to perfection. If I had any complaint at all it would be that the steaks could have been a little more flavorful. All in all a wonderful experience and look forward to our next visit.
