Wonderful choice for dinner our last night in Nashville. There are 6 levels, we ate on the 4th level. Beautiful dining room and decor. Our waiter was awesome too! I wish I remembered his name. He had dark hair that was pulled back into a low pony tail. Wonderful food and service. I will definitely return when I come back to Nashville.

Great waitperson and service! He had a large table next to us that became momentarily grumpy and he won them back over quickly. He was awesome. Watermelon, arugula & feta Salad was delicious as was the Hot chicken & waffles and shrimp and Grits. Great drinks. Awesome view.

We tried this for breakfast, and the menu was ok - quite limited but everyone found something they wanted. Wait staff was pleasant. The food was fine... but nothing too exciting. Waffles were cooked well, but nothing to make them standout. Gouda grits were nice, but everything else seemed very average. Given the prices, it felt a little underwhelming. Theming was not nearly as much as I expected from someplace called "The Diner", and no Blue Plate specials or 50's roadside decor. Just a basic place to eat.

I think the milkshakes may be the big draw here, but we didn't try any due to having a peanut allergy and it didn't look safe for that.

This is not as nice as advertised. It’s like an Olive Garden that got its menu gutted and doubled in price.

Food was good but not great and menu was very limited and a little pricey for what you get. I did like the atmosphere though and the staff was great and I love that you could make reservations.

Our server was less than enthused to be waiting tables. The breakfast sandwich was very bland, we were never asked how our meals were or if we needed anything (a little hot sauce may have helped). Water was never brought to our tables and our sodas were never refilled. I wouldn't recommend.

Horrible!! Our waitress never came to our table after being there over an hour!!! She also gave us a broken glass. We ended up leaving. I hope this improves in the future.

90 plus degrees out with the windows open which meant the AC could not handle the heat and sun blaring directly in on the table with no window shades - not a great environment to dine in, unless you like a sauna. Did asked to move and was told it was same on each floor.

Our experience for lunch was very nice. The atmosphere was wonderful and it was enjoyable to have the open windows, but not be affected by the heat.
The food was very good, although the menu for lunch was limited.
I would definitely return and share my positive experience with others.

Showed up 1/2 hr early and they sat us right away. Very impressed with the the atmosphere (ate on the 4th floor). Tasha was very accommodating, personable and didn't rush us as we took our time ordering and eating. My wife and I both had the salmon with asparagus. Awesome!! Only issue was we asked to be moved from the street side table due to the glare of the sun. If there had been some type of shading, it would have been an ideal seating arrangement.

This is a fun place to go - a landmark! The food was average and not a ton of choices. The room is quite warm because the “manager wants us to keep the windows open”. Our server had been working in the heat all day and was less than perky. Still a fun, unique and interesting place to go.
