Housed in a glorious Southern mansion in the heart of Music City, Jimmy Kelly’s continues to be the standard by which all American steakhouses are measured. Founded in 1934 while the country was in the throes of the Great Depression and just one year removed from the repeal of prohibition, Jimmy Kelly made a promise to himself and his diners. Simply put, he would serve a great steak, a generous portion of whiskey and insure the service was always attentive. Making good on that promise has been the cornerstone of the restaurant’s success and enabled it to survive and flourish. Now over 80 years later and operated by the third generation of Kellys, it has earned a reputation as one of the grand old restaurants not only in Nashville but the entire southeast. Come anytime and enjoy a great steak and a generous portion of whiskey!

I took my husband here for his birthday as we had never been to Jimmy Kelly's. From the time we pulled up to the complimentary valet parking until the time we left we were thoroughly impressed. The ambiance is absolutely phenomenal and really captures the way Nashville looked years ago and because we had an earlier reservation we pretty much had a room to our self. As if we weren't already impressed we were fortunate enough to have Arthur as the one who took care of us all evening and to tell you he made the experience would be an understatement. Not only was he prompt with getting our food to the table and keeping our drinks filled but he entertained us the whole time. We both had the New York strip with twice baked potato and macaroni and cheese. Every entree comes with a salad and a baked potato. The cornbread really takes me back to my childhood and it was delicious as well. They have a variety of desserts and an extensive wine list. I would highly recommend this place if you are looking for a true dining experience at a reasonable price for wonderful food but you must ask for Arthur or as he is also known King Arthur.

I ordered the NY Strip while the wife ordered the filet. The dishes came with a house salad, which there’s more to be desired for a salad, but the house made Italian dressing was tasty!! Not long after finishing the salads our waiter served us our main dishes, which was was very quickly after ordering and at a busy time. The NY Strip was cooked perfect while the filet was well under cooked ( ordered medium and came rare). Overall service was great!

Jimmy Kelly's is a dining experience that should be experienced.

The restaurant is a bit pricey, but that is to be expected given the very high quality of the food. My bone-in filet was excellent, although it was cooked medium rare rather than medium. My wife was very specific she wanted her steak well done but not burned, and was assured that could be done. Nevertheless, even though the steak was butterflied, it was still medium on the inside. It was much better that our steaks were undercooked than overcooked, however.

Our waiter was excellent and attentive, returning promptly with anything not provided.

The wine selection is excellent; the beer selection poor.

As a side note, there was a cold draft under our table that came and went as the heat cycled on and off.

Overall experience was extremely disappointing for a Nashville staple. Nothing was worth coming back for. Food was plated terribly. Extremely overpriced for the quality of food

The food was great and the service was top notch. The atmosphere is romantic and the perfect place for a special occasion. The Bleu cheese stuffed fillet was cooked to perfection and my favorite thing on the menu.
