    NOT a place for families. Very nasty doorman put two huge X's on my 14 year old son's hand with a wide tip sharpie before I knew he was doing it. There is very loud music, piped in not live. Like a rave constant bang bang all through dinner. The waitress was nice the food decent and portions good.

    Based off the pictures of this restaurant it looked like the place for a good dinner for American food to celebrate father’s day. Upon entering we realized it was a bar, no hostess stand , no direction to go to speak with anyone. The place was so incredibly loud you could not even enjoy your dinner without yelling. I could understand the first floor being a bar area, and the second/third floor be a little more quite. But no. It was screaming loud at 4:45 in the afternoon. The server we had was absolutely terrible, rude, and not attentive at all. I would understand if she was more polite, but all around very rude. This restaurant/bar should not be available for reservations. The food was okay, not worth the hype.

    Wanted a place to eat that had hot chicken. This place did not disappoint. Best food we had on Broadway all week long. No band playing while we were there, but it had a great vibe anyway.

    The restaurant didn’t have the number of servers needed to tend to the tables well. We waited 30 min. for a thing of butter and reminded them kindly at least five times. The food is okay - think IHOP. The volume level of the music was really loud and hard to hear everyone. Overall, if you can’t find a spot for a large party this place will do the job, but I’d go elsewhere if you can.

    The food was good for the most part. Nothing really to brag about. We were extremely frustrated that we had 8 guests and we were not able to have separate checks. We were only give the option to divide the entire check by 6.

    Had the worst experience, manager on duty was on a power trip. Kicked us out over 2 girls who entered room by accident. So unprofessional plan on reaching out to regional manager on our experience. We are a bunch of professionals on a girls trip never been treated as disrespectful as I was this evening. Would not recommend.

    Staff as friendly and place looked cool and has possibilities but Service was slow and food was fair. Mixed drinks did not contain much alcohol (for the price). Went to eat and ride the bull and it seemed like an afterthought for the man operating it as he was also watching the door. Temperature of restaurant was warm. Portable air unit did not make it comfortable. Was expecting much more (since the place was featured on RHONJ) and was extremely disappointed.

    I made reservations and it didn’t seem like they actually take reservations. They just said yeah, there should be a table on the rooftop these are all full. The waiter was great, she was on it. Unfortunately, the food was almost inedible. The brisket looked like it had been in the fridge for a week. The food was cold. Go for drinks and games and get food somewhere else. The views from the rooftop were great.

    We were able to get a reservation on the rooftop on a wonderful evening. The view was fantastic, the service was attentive and efficient. The food was typical Nashville fare, everything was fried- The standouts were fried green tomatoes, and fried hot chicken - all very good, You would not have it too often, but it was great for a special treat.

    We had a reservation booked weeks in advance. 7 of us went on a Thursday night for my sister bachelorette party. it took 35 mins to get water and even longer to get a drink. Our server was extremely busy but she must have been working on multiple floors because the floor we were on didn't have over 30 people. It took 2 hours to get our food and the food was extremely greasy. I love chicken fingers and am not a picky eater but I couldn't even eat them because the grease was too much. Over priced for service, drinks and food.

    We had very high hopes for our reservation at Nashville Underground. Unfortunately, it turned out to be a major waste of time and money on our first evening in Nashville. Our waitress was not to blame. She was new, very friendly, and had ENTIRELY too many tables to take care of. Our entire group has extensive experience as servers and bartenders... We noticed a number of issues: #1 - Under no circumstances should a table of 5 people wait over 35 minutes for their drink order to arrive. We had already waited at least 20 minutes before even being greeted. #2 - We genuinely believe that Nashville underground is "cutting" their alcohol with water. Again, we are all bar tenders. We watched the NU bartender HEAVILY pour the titos for a titos and soda... When I tell you that there was not vodka in that cup, I cannot stress this enough. There had to be at least 3 oz of a pour (based on watching her actually pour) and there wasnt even a hint of vodka taste. That makes no sense. #3 - once the food finally arrived, we had already been in the restaurant for over an hour and a half. We actually ended up sending food back. You could tell it had been sitting under the heat lamps long enough to harden. What a shame.... The manager knew things were not going well, and he appropriately comped mozz sticks and beverages. It is unfortunate that this was the experience, however.. these things happen in a high volume atmosphere. Number one piece of advice.... Please stop giving your servers so many tables. NO server should have more than 3 to 4 parties at one time, in order to maintain table turnover, as well as fully satisfied guests. Not only does it impact their tips, it makes your customer feel as if they are overlooked and forgotten about. We had 2 different parties ask us about our experience before we left that building. They were trying to decide which establishment to dine/drink at for the evening. We told them our honest opinion, and they ended up leaving.

    Food was very good. Chicken tenders, pizza, appetizers, drinks. Everything was very good and worth the money. The music was not live and was way way way too loud for the 30 people in the restaurant. It is downtown Broadway so you expect a bar type bof vibe that is definitely what it has. Server was not really interested in us. We wanted to eat good food on Mother’s Day without a three hour wait while showing some friends around downtown so it worked for us. Our kids enjoy the games throughout each level.

    This was a Mother’s Day meal with my wife, sister-in-law and mother in law along with 4 kids. This wasn’t our first choice of restaurants since not many could seat a party of 9 on Mother’s Day. The area where we sat turns into a nightclub in the evening so it wasn’t the most relaxing venue. The house was bumping and rather loud for a Sunday afternoon but then again, we’re in downtown Music City. There we a few “WooHoo!” Girl sitings (bachelorette parties). Overall it was a decent experience. Kids enjoyed the downstairs games, the food was good, not great, ribs were dry.

    Excellent food and service. We were not able to enjoy the rooftop because they didn’t allow my 13 year old on that floor because it was used as a nightclub in the later hours. We were there for brunch at 11 am so this requirement is kind of senseless. If this is the law it needs to change. Overall, great restaurant and we will be back.

    The underground is under new management… we having been going every year for the past few, but it has really changed. No more couches, no more bottomless mimosas… they now have an emphasis on games… no one wants games in Nashville. If i wanted dave and busters i would go there. Our waitress said the new management has geared the bar is this direction. I disagree. Ill never be back…
