Loved listening to Brit Stokes play his live music while here. Always a plus~ Drinks are nothing to write home about, but service was good, and our drinks were always full.

We had a large group of 20, and Adam and his team did a great job accommodating us. Food was on point, and the energy in that place is fantastic. Highly recommend.

Our reservation was for dinner for a bachelorette party. We didn’t realize we’d be sitting in a somewhat private room in the back. But we kind of liked that, so we could hear each other over the music. We also went up to the rooftop for a bit while waiting for our food. We enjoyed the view of the river.

Skye did a GREAT JOB serving out party of 26. The food came out on time but the selection was kind of low. Not many options. The music was good and inside was very cool.

We had a reservation for 22 and appreciated them accommodating our large group. But the menu on their website was outdated and many of our guests were disappointed with the very limited menu the restaurant provided. However, the view from the rooftop is unbeatable!

Service very nice. Excellent casual food. Nice atmosphere. We were seated in the back so didn’t have as full experience of the live music that would have liked. Pretty isolated back there.

Place was fairly empty when ordering food and it took over an hour after ordered to start receiving our food. Some of it even came out cold. Also once a group of guys came in, we only saw our server twice after that as she was more concerned with their table. Some of our party left cash on the table and just left as it took over 30 minutes to get our bills. I was sad as this place had great reviews, so I guess we came on an off night.

The location, decor, and views were great, even the band was awesome but the quality of food and drinks left much to be desired. I ordered shrimp tacos and there were only two shrimp in each and they did not come with a side, I actually went away hungry! The cocktails had very little alcohol in them. Our waiter did okay but lacked any personality. I will not be returning, there are too many restaurants that are similar so why settle for sub par service?

We had a group of 12 girls (bachelorette party) and we made a reservation for the roof — on a beautiful sunny Saturday afternoon. Dylan was our server and he was very busy, but also very attentive! He did a wonderful job even though he was running here and there! Hats off, oh and he was good eye candy, too! 🤣

We were the first party of the day around 11 AM on a Saturday there were 14 of us in our group, and we booked because their reviews said that they were good for a party. The server was dealing with every table and the bar patrons and needed more help. The food was mediocre especially the value on the avocado toast.

The rooftop is a great view and vibe, but the overhead music was way too loud. No one could hold a conversation because of it. The server got our drink orders okay, but obviously some issues happened in the kitchen when our main food orders were placed - one of our people didn’t get their meal until 10 minutes after we all finished ours. There was no mention of comping her bill. Also, my chicken breast was burnt to the crisp on the bottom, could barely cut through it. No condiments offered on the table. Wouldn’t come back for food.

We had a group of 20 and the staff accommodated us very well in their River Room. Live music the whole time, and the food/drinks were on time and plentiful. Strongly recommended.

Went for an early dinner before a concert. As in most places in Nashville, the musicians on stage were very good. However, unless your going here to see particular performers or just want some OK bar food to go with your drinks and music, you could do much better if your seeking decent dining.

We made a reservation for our party of 8 about a month in advance. When we got to the restaurant we had to wait for about 10 minutes before a hostess came to the front of the restaurant to greet us. From there it went south...there were two bartenders for an area that serves probably 80 people and the bar. It took us over 20 minutes before we had to ask for service. We ended up having a manager as our server. The food was also cold and not great quality.

We had a party of 13 and they had our table ready on time, our waitress was wonderful. She had to handle 13 people drinking and eating and she did a pretty good job. Food choices were excellent from healthy to not. Would go back again
