Overall it was a wonderful date night
Jimmy Kelly’s is constantly delicious, and the staff is consistently incredible! You feel like you’re dinning with friends with how they treat you!
The meal was outstanding. The filets were cooked perfect! The mixed drinks were good. Our waiter (Bill) was excellent!!!
Great as usual however another guest was rude enough to let thier phone ring with an obnoxious ringtone three times. Not the restaurant’s fault
We came here after receiving a gift card for Christmas with high expectations given the history. We sat in a quiet upstairs area with 4 other tables and it was so quiet and awkward you could hear the person next to you chewing. The server who said he’s been there 4 years didn’t know which bottle of wine we ordered without looking at a menu. The steak was not seasoned at all and we both ordered medium rare and received medium well. It was chewy with no flavor. The Mac n cheese was watery. Overall terrible experience & I can’t believe we wasted $150 on top of the $100 gift card when we could have made a better meal at home.
We had a reservations for 6:30 for 6 people. We were seated immediately and drink and food orders were taken promptly. But it was after 8:00 before our entrees came out. I’m sure they are short on staff but no apologies were made. Nothing was said about it taking so long to serve our meals. We skipped dessert because it was 9:00 by the time we asked for our checks. It’s sad to see a great restaurant that we enjoy so much decline.
Great meal and service!
Our overall dining experience was wonderful. We had dinner with friends before a ballgame. We were seated promptly and everything was perfect from the service to the steaks. The fillets were cooked perfectly and the fried oyster appetizers were also perfect. One of the iconic restaurants in Nashville.
Fabulous blue cheese stuffed fillets and salmon. Terrific house salad. Huge twice baked potato. Excellent service from Chris. Would have preferred to sit inside versus the covered patio but overall a delightful experience! Highly recommended. Valet service was very prompt as well.
Jimmy Kellys never disappoints!! Great food and great service in a wonderful atmosphere.
The steaks here are some of the best I have had in the country. I do believe the Filet is the best choice. Me and my wife general get one Filet stuffed with blue Cheese and one without and then share them so we get the best of both worlds. This visit we had the Chateaubriand, it was one of my favorites but not on the menu currently. I asked for it in advance and they were happy to make it for us. So tender and the flavor was top notch. I also tried their crab cakes, which I didn't have high hopes for since I have lived on both the east coast and west coast. But wow, I'm not sure how the cake was holding together since it had so much fresh crab meat in it. I will be ordering that more often for sure. If you have never been here for dinner do yourself a favor and forget about the big high end chain and come here. This is the oldest running steak house in Nashville and there is a good reason for it. I think this is the 87th year for them but not in the same location. Cool location, friendly staff and great food, what else do you need.
Michael ordered special. $75 meal. Value not there.
Last nights dinner was as good as we have had there in two years. We have dined at Jimmy Kelly’s for 30 years and we have had some meals not up to their standard or at least it felt that way to us. Last nights dinner felt like they were back. Crazy weather, not as busy maybe but food was excellent. Salad was great, steak was perfection and even the baked potato was better. We will return and continue recommending to our friends.
Sad but would not recommend!!!!! Not the same quality as years past--- We went for our anniversary- we had not been in about 3 years- we are local for 50 years- Waiter was soooo BAD- so disengaged- could care less! The food was not as good as other steakhouses in the area! Everything from salad to dessert was not worth the money- all just dated & poorly severed! The Salad was not fresh & skimpy, the dressing watery, dessert was cold and old- filet had zero flavor- We hate to write bad reviews but this one is justified! Out of all the steakhouses in Nashville do not go to this one! The enclosed patio was really nice though- Sorry to say that is the only great thing!
Great food, great and entertaining service and a wonderful ambiance.
The restaurant was a very beautiful old colonial style home which was built for one of Nashville’s first physicians. So lots of history. The food was delicious just needed a little salt but overall very good. My filet was so tender it cut like butter. Very nice high end steak house. Great place to go for a special occasion. Be ready to spend over $100 for a party of two. I would recommend it.
It was my first time going and it was an amazing experience. Will most definitely be back
Birthday blackberry dessert was amazing! Jimmy was a great host.
it was a great Birthday
Our family of four all ordered steaks. The were cooked to the right temperature with no taste. Sadly the only thing that had flavor were the French fries.
Service- Robotic style ! Very disappointed with the whole experience.
Food—everything was great—except the steak! My husband and I each ordered a filet, medium rare. My was served medium. My husband’s was well done. He sent his back, and the returned steak was raw. The server took his steak off our check, but it was disappointing to not enjoy a great dinner.
Awesome food and service!! Will definitely be returning.
Robert W. Was great..very knowledgeable pertaining to menu and prompt with wine refills. Our dinner was perfect as always. Clyde is our favorite . We could over hear him sing ginger Happy Birthday in another room!. We could also hear the kitchen..great energy and atmosphere.
I brought my son here for a great steak and BBQ Prawns. Jimmy and Bill provided superb service, in a nice quiet area offset from the bar. The timing of everything was perfect, along with outstanding food presentation and flavor. My son is 11 years old, and NOW he knows the difference between fine dining and chain steakhouses. It was a spectacular experience.
Great service and great food.
our server Joe was outstanding the best service ever.
The filets, sides and desserts were delicious. The ribeye was tough and chewy. Service was friendly, but in past when we had people that hadn't been before, some history of the restaurant was given and the menu explained. We asked questions about how large the sharable sides were and got "depends on how hungry you are". When asking about ribeye, would have helped to know about tenderness level, get recommendations, etc.
Great southern charm, service is excellent. Plan to go back soon
Another great experience! Our steaks were awesome and our waiter, Jeff, provided great service along with several laughs along the way. Couldn’t have been better!
The steak and potato were great. Salad is nothing special.
Jimmy Kelly's is always a great experience. The food is amazing and the service is awesome. We love going there, whether it be to celebrate an occasion or just for a nice meal.
Service was the difference maker. Robert, our waiter, was great. Drinks were well made. We had calamari as an appetizer and would not order it again. Pieces were small and the breading overpowered the calamari. Salads were good. Steaks were fantastic. The chocolate cake desert was amazing. We were in one of the upstairs dining rooms and it was very quiet. They should have background music piped in. Would come back.
Another great birthday dinner. The Bootlegger Ribeye was its usual tender juicy self and my wife’s bacon wrapped and blue cheese stuffed filet was melt in your mouth good. Sides wee great. Special thanks to our server Karla . She was great and helped make our night special.
Never disappointed. Food amazing and worth the price. Ask for Carla - she is simply the best server. She knows her stuff, and is attentive and fun.
Great steaks and atmosphere. Love this place for a quiet night out and good food.
So glad to dine here when the Christmas trees were still up since we were celebrating a late holiday due to Co-vid. Robert our server was exceptional, always there to assist and great sense of humor kept for a fun evening. Steaks were cooked to perfection.
Everything was excellent. Our server was Jeff-he did an excellent job.
I was not seated when I arrived because the rest of my party was late. So I stood in the cold by the door waiting. With the restaurant half empty I didn't see a reason for that. I've had better steak at much less expensive restaurants.
Very nice dinner and the service was great! New York Strip was fantastic as always. Corn cakes are a favorite of mine and have been one since started eating here 40 some odd years ago....
