Made a reservation here to eat with my teenage daughter before the Titans football game on 1/2/2022. The guy working the front door was a bit of a jerk. He didn’t seem to know how to handle the fact we had an open table reservation. He told us to just find and sit at an available table. We left to eat somewhere else. This place is tourist trap with terrible customer service.

All around an okay experience. We had to sit at a random table because they didn’t have one for us. The food was good!!

Don’t bother making reservations because it doesn’t matter. We got there and told them we had reservations and they said they were booked. Very loud. Tried to watch the football game and music was so loud couldn’t really focus on the game.

We went to watch the Ohio State game (Rose Bowl). They dedicated the entire 2nd floor to Ohio State fans. Definitely glad we made a reservation. It was a fun atmosphere. Service was a little slow, but the second floor was busy during the game.

Great location if you have a large party. We went to a game at Nissan Stadium and wanted to eat with kids right after. We were able to get reservations for 12. The waitress was good, but food was mediocre and kitchen lost an order. They made it right but a little disappointed there. Rooftop area was great place to hang out while we waited for food.

Worst experience ever. We entered downstairs. There was a bartender, but no other staff. So we continued upstairs, found the second floor to be wrecked and abandoned. Tools, ladders, mess everywhere and the lights were off, so we continued further upstairs. Found a sports bar type room, but no one to check in with for our reservation. So I approached the bartender, who told me she was the only one working and just find a table and find her, once we were ready to order. We sat outside, despite the rainstorm, because they had a nice tent covering. But there was a maintenance crew building some sort of cabinet RIGHT NEXT TO THE DINING TABLES, using loud drill motors and power tools. Several different guests asked if they could stop or move their operation elsewhere, and the guys wouldn’t accommodate. They kept saying they would be done soon. That went on for 15 minutes.

The food was over friend, greasy, and bleh.

Would never return here again, even if my only other choice was a street vendor hotdog!

We sat on the roof and the view is spectacular. The river one way and the lights of broadway the other. They were understaffed like everyone else but made it work. The food was great but the on tap selection was meager. They were assembling a Sk booth in our ears and it was loud rude and annoying a passing shower got rid of them so we could enjoy the rest of our meal

A little disappointed, to be honest. We were in Nashville on vacation and booked a table here because it was advertised as a Chiefs bar. That is true on the second floor, but our server was less than friendly, and the atmosphere was not that of a true sports bar with the enthusiasm of cheering for your home team. The “Security” at the front door was not paying attention as you entered, and then proceeded to get mad if you didn’t stop and show your ID upon entering. Overall, just not a positive experience. It’s too bad, since there are Chiefs fans everywhere!

They forgot to give us the Christmas dinner menu. Then they also forgot to tell us that they were out of pulled pork. It took an hour for us to get food even though it wasn’t crowded. When we got our food, the fried green tomatoes were burned. The server maybe got to our table every 30 minutes.

We had dinner reservations at 7pm. After paying $30 to park because downtown Nashville parking is wild, we made our way to the restaurant. We had been traveling all day and were starving and very ready for some delicious bbq. Ten minutes after we were seated, our server informed us that there was a limited menu and brought us a slip of paper with about 1/8 of the options from the main menu. We really wanted bbq so we decided to order the only actual bbq item they had in the limited menu (at a bbq joint). When the server brought our cocktails, which were surprisingly delicious, we ordered our food but then she informed us they were all out of bbq. We ordered an appetizer to eat while we finished our drinks, while planning to leave and eat elsewhere. After 30 minutes, our server had disappeared, our drinks were empty, and we still hadn’t received our appetizer. We finally tracked down a different server and they were able to get the manager to bring us an appetizer. After waiting 45 minutes they brought us a very underwhelming appetizer. We then had to beg someone to bring us our check. Despite the manager helping us, they still charged us full price… $70 for three drinks and a bland appetizer. Do not recommend wasting your time if you plan to eat.

I was totally disappoint with the fact that it was Christmas Day and they did not put on open table that they were going to have a limited menu. Which consist on 5 items 2 of which they were out of. We had 35 people from out of town that were very disappointed. One of the 2 servers we had was absolutely horrible as to my son and I had to share a fork. Find a better place to eat people is my recommendation 😒

We reserved a table that we were never given. We were told we could just hover and try to grab one when it came open, which didn’t work for half an hour and we gave up. Why they were continuing to offer reservations is beyond me. We went elsewhere.

Very nice up on the roof, the food was very good. When they say HOT they mean it more than any restaurant we have ever been to. We usually laugh at waiters who say their wings are hot, we were not laughing!! The Nashville Hot still had great flavor and was incredibly hot.

Ribs were overcooked and dried out. The removed them from the bill but overall seemed too $$ for lunch. Rest of the food was okay but nothing that I would say I “must” go back for.

We had a reservation, showed up early. We were seated, no one came to take our drink order so we asked if we could move up to the bar. Bar tender was friendly, got us drinks and we placed our appetizer order. We were informed shifts would be changing and were asked to put in our main course order ASAP in addition to paying for it. We then sat at the bar for over an hour waiting for our food. No one asked us if we’d been helped except for an “you guys ok?” We asked if our food was on its way out and were told there was no food order in for us. We promptly asked for a refund for the food we never received ($72) and made our way out of the bar. Pulled pork and egg rolls were just okay.

Made a reservation for 6 people to have dinner and watch a football game. The game was playing on ESPN at 6:00 and besides the fact that music was so loud you couldn’t even have a conversation, it took almost an hour to get anyone to play the game. The bill for drinks and bar food (mainly appetizers) was over $700. This is a club seen, not anywhere you would want to eat dinner.

I made a reservation for a standard table, not a high top. When we arrived we were seated at a high top right by the bull riding pit. The area got crowded and made our dining experience unenjoyable. Especially considering that there were many other standard tables available that were away from the bull riding pit.
