The Palm Restaurant is a classic American steakhouse chain renowned all over the U.S. They serve USDA prime aged steaks, jumbo Nova Scotia lobsters, Italian dishes, fresh seafood, and more. It’s an amazing atmosphere and the location next to the Hilton Suites and the Gaylord Entertainment Center means they attract a lot of celebrities who are in town performing or visiting. The Palm is great for people-watching and even better for dining — try one of their perfectly seared cuts of meat along with a side of vegetables or potatoes. They do their food right every time.

Ruth’s Chris Steak House is a famous chain and the Nashville branch, near Music Row, definitely lives up to the acclaim. They serve the finest USDA Prime beef you can find and broil it to perfection. Then they present it on steaming hot plates so it stays hot, juicy, and delicious from first bite to last. They also serve New Orleans-inspired appetizers, fresh seafood, signature side dishes, and amazing homemade desserts. Get a group of friends together and indulge in some of the finest steaks around. If you want to go all out, pair your meal with a martini or Manhattan!
