Hemingway's Bar & Hideaway: a relaxed restaurant and refined tavern serving comfort food classics & craft cocktails inspired by Ernest Hemingway in rustic-chic surrounds.
Reasonably priced entrees like the 32oz. Bone Ribeye, Double Cut Pork Rib Chop and Short Rib were inspired by Chef Larry Carlile's time in his mom's kitchen. However, his own Korean Fried Chicken has already established itself as a Hemingway's Bar & Hideaway classic. Saturday & Sunday brunch starts 10:30AM - 2:30PM! Don't miss out on the Ribeye French Dip sandwich, Brown Butter Pancakes, Hot Chicken & Mac! Wash it all down with Bottomless Mimosas.

We love Hemingway’s but I was disappointed that we weren’t told that it was going to be a pre-fix menu in advance For Valentine’s Day. Also the same with the restaurant adding an automatic 20% gratuity. The service was good but I don’t think it’s appropriate to not be informed of that up front.

Valentines day dinner. 270.00. . . Took 5-10 minutes for drinks to make it to our table each time, which were 16.00 a piece. Keep in mind it wasnt crowded. Appetizers were good but extremely light. 2nd course was better. 3rd course dinner I had a NY steak that was overcooked, my dates scallops were good, but nothing extraordinary. 4th course, Desert was the biggest let down. Basically cake in a shot glass with a couple of raspberries. Overall i was very disappointed, if it wasnt for the great conversation with my date I would say this was one of the worst v-day dinners I've had.

We were 45 minutes late because we were stuck behind a wreck & they were very accommodating & sat as soon as we arrived. Our waiter was very nice & did a great job. We were in a hurry because we were going to a concert. We just ordered drinks & appetizers. The cocktails were delicious. The fried oysters were delicious. The beet salad was good, but the watercress was extremely bitter. The mushrooms & soba noodles were very tasty. I will definitely go back.

Hemingway’s has become one of my favorites over the past year. On this particular night I had guests in from out of town who had not been to Nashville before. On Friday night we stopped at Hemingway‘s, initially for drinks and apps. When we saw some of the dinner plates passing by and heard the specials we switched gears and ordered the amazing ribeye which was shared by the four of us as well as the trout Dinner special and a plate of brussels sprouts. The four of us were able to share this plus between the four of us were able to sample a large number of their signature cocktails. As always the Steve McQueen was a front runner but they have some great gin drinks as well. Highly recommend this.

Everything was fine and lovely until magically at 11PM the music became DEAFENING. We were 4 of only maybe 7 patrons in the whole place and we asked our waitress why the music was so loud and her response was “Because it becomes more of a bar scene at 11.” Um... okay?? But where is this “scene” at? Because the other three patrons left soon thereafter and we stayed for another hour and a half or so and there was still no “bar scene.” It was pretty

Excellent food and service with a couple minor exceptions. We were greeted by the hostess with her head down and she asked us "What can I do for you?" Was not a very good first impression. We were seated promptly but it took 10 minutes for our server to greet us. (There were many empty tables when we arrived). He was super pleasant and took our drink orders. It took 15 more minutes to get cocktails which is totally unacceptable. One would THINK that a restaurant and bar that has been voted "best place" for this and that could get drink orders out faster than 15 minutes, especially when the restaurant isn't full.

Having said all of the above I did bring the above mentioned items to the managers attention and he as super nice and showed us genuinely that he was sorry and our issues would be addressed. Hemingways is one of our favorite places for drinks and dinner and I would not let what happened on our visit preclude us from returning any time soon.

Disappointed in our experience today! This was our second experience there and it paled in comparison to our first. The food was subpar and the service was slow. It was evident that the restaurant wasn’t staffed for the number of guests.

Hemingway's Bar and Hideaway was a real surprise. I expected it to be good, but I didn't expect such a unique menu for both food and drink. The menu contained some fun surprises as it didn't resemble every other menu in Nashville. The lobster beignets were especially inventive. Also, the drinks were beautifully crafted and artfully presented. Service was excellent and the server was knowledgeable about the entire menu. I also thought the interior space was gorgeous! Loved our night our at Hemingway's. We will be back!

2nd time to eat here. Food and drinks have always been good. This time (Saturday evening), the noise level was considerably louder than the 1st time (Sunday evening). Service has always been excellent and the service staff is quite knowledgeable of the food and drink menu. Will definitely go back. Great ambiance, like a local neighborhood bar.

This was our first visit & enjoyed it. The Poutine Benedict was delicious & the service outstanding. It’s a little hard to find & they could do a better job of outside signage. I thought $5.00 for a maybe 6oz glass of orange juice was ridiculous. Overall very good & will go back.

We really enjoyed this restaurant. Really cool building and comfortable ambiance. The only downsides involved the menu. The cocktail menu had fun prose, but told us very, very little about each cocktail. The food menu was extremely limited, and needed some explanation, as well.

Ran out from the home office to start the New Years Resolution list to get out more and try new places.They have a shorter mixed brunch menu than what is listed online. Had my heart set on steak frites. It was a no go so I had the Korean chicken sandwich. It was ok. Expensive for what it was. I would have gotten chickfila and added some kimchee and enjoyed that version more. Bartender complained a few times about how slow they were to other workers. Been in the biz all my life and understand the frustration but a good manager would have recognized his frustration and given him some tasks.

The atmosphere is perfect...industrial chic. Warm. Excellent wait person (Parker). The Manhattan was spot on...having sampled them around town, I rank it as the best (better than Patterson House or Atta Boy). Easy to recommend for a great night out.

Our server, Miranda, was excellent; attentive and friendly. The hostess did not seem to be as welcoming upon first impression. The conversation volume was high at times. I felt I was yelling at my friend across the table in order to be heard.

The bone-in pork was perfectly seared to perfection. The Brussel spouts with balsamic was excellent. Would certainly have a repeat visit just for those two dishes.

Thank you.
