We loved everything! The entertainment was awesome!!!
Waited an hour for dried out scrambled eggs and soggy toast. The corn muffins were freshly baked and very good.
the food was great and the band sounded great and was fun. the music was a mix of county, pop and rick that night but what I understand there could be a different band each night. The staff was fun and energetic. and for someone who likes classic cars the old truck was a treat.
Great food and atmosphere.
My experience was good but I was disappointed
HI there! Hoping we can get some clarification? Were you disappointed in food? Service? Museum? We would love to take this opportunity to improve and would love more feedback! Thanks!
Atmosphere, food and service were great.
Quick food service
The tv net to our table was OFF. The server said that the TVs cannot be turned until the game starts...zero exceptions. Even though the TVs at the bar were tuned in to the pre-game show. Super disappointing since that is why we were there. We also chose this for a 40th birthday and documented that on our reservation...it was never mentioned by the staff. $3 mimosas mae up for the short comings.
Such good food. Great way to eat a nice dinner on broadway.
Service was rushed and impersonal. Food was good.
Was a fun place to go. The waitstaff was very nice, but seemed a bit untrained. We are from Texas and asked some basic BBQ questions, which she could not answer - not her fault - management could do more basic training about rubs and sauces used at the restaurant. Music was pretty top 40 pop. We expected more traditional country mixed in.
Food service was VERY slow. Food was very ordinary. Wife said it was the worst pork sandwich she ever had. My ribs were so-so. Nice music, good view of the river. Not impressed. Way.
Very slow service and food wasn’t great. Our group had to finally go to the bar to get our drinks. Restaurant wasn’t very busy, they might have been short staffed but wasn’t great.
Great food and drinks! There was live music on the main floor while we were there. It was great, not too loud.
Awesome food and great views from the inside and rooftop bar!
The brisket was INCREDIBLE! Kind waiter and quick service. A great spot with live music just steps from the crowds on Broadway.
we had a group of 8, so it was wonderful that we could make a reservation. the service was good. the food was good however one in our group got the smoked chicken salad and said she didn't like the dressing. the food was great for a crowd and I think better than what else we might have run into. all in all everyone was happy
Brought a group here after a long day on Broadway. Barbeque was amazing, I've been to many different bbq places around the United States, best brisket I've ever had. The band was hopping and after eating we stuck around and danced. 10/10 would reccomend.
Great food & prices. Service was terrible though. Had to get utensils, etc ourselves four times. Waitress complained to us when we only left 18% tip
A bit too loud.
This was our last night In Nashville and my husband thought this place was a huge hit! He’s the biggest GJ fan ever!! The food was good. We had prime rib dinner and the prime rib French dip sandwich. Service was a little slow but it was Friday night in Nashville‼️would visit again
The food was very good, but it was kind of overshadowed by the slow service. Our waitress came to our table pretty quickly after we were seated, and brought us our drinks and took our orders shortly thereafter, but once we got our food it was all over. My husband needed a drink refill, and after waiting... and waiting... and waiting..., he finally got up and went to the bar to get a refill. She came by a little while later and brought our check, then disappeared again. In her defense, though, I don't think it was her fault. It seemed like she was one of only 2 servers on the entire floor. I think they were very short staffed and it was just too much for 2 people to adequately cover. But the food was very good, the place has a great vibe, and the music was good, too. Not so loud that you couldn't talk to your tablemates. I'll definitely give it another chance and hope they have more staff next time.
Food was great! Atmosphere and music were fun even early on around 5:30. We're tried the brisket and ribs. Brisket probably better than the ribs. Weren't quite fall off the bone, but taste was great.
I would absolutely recommend The George Jones BBQ to all. It's a big place..the music was good and the food was very good. The pulled pork and chicken were delicious as well as the burgers. I would have to say no on the brisket....it is thick sliced and was pretty fatty...had 4 people at our table say "no" to the brisket. Corn muffins were way good as well as the chicken hot bites! The baked beans were good...but they were more of a chili baked bean..just an fyi cause not everyone likes the chili spice!!
Good entertainment and off the noise of Broadway. Bbq was good but out of two sauces. Waitress struggled with her ability to focus on multiple tables.
Best RIBs in Nashville,very tender, good light smoked flavor,very meaty. You must try them,make reservations.
Wow! Thanks so much Don! Glad you enjoyed!
Dinner before concert. Food was great and priced well. Service could have been more attentive. Took a long time to get waitress to check us out.
Sorry to hear that! Thanks for taking the time to say something! It is the only way we can improve!
Terrible... we came for the ribs and they ran out at 6pm. Green beans were raw - tough and inedible. Drinks were good. Burnt Tips and Green Tomatoes good. Just not the great evening we were expecting.
So sorry to hear this! Looking over what might have happened with our Smokehouse par for that day. It doesn't happen often - but if we get a run on a certain item there is no fast and easy way to make it, since we smoke all of our meats in house (the ribs take 12 hours). No excuse -as we usually have our pars well under thumb, just want to look into that!
Made reservations for a special occasion. We were seated at a booth without a River view, by the server station. It took a very long time for our server to take care of us. He was pleasant, though. The food was fine. Did enjoy the views from the rooftop bar.
Thank you so much for reaching out - -very sorry that your reservation didn't go as planned. We really do thank you for speaking up so we have a chance to improve - although that doesn't help with your special birthday.
The food was good, as was the atmosphere. Our server greeted us and took our order, which was fine. She never came back to our table except to take our plate and bring our check, as if to say, “get out”! We we’re planning to have a few drinks and enjoy the music but our server was clearly done with us. If it had not been for Terrapin Brewery, who was there promoting their beer, we would never have gotten the only drink we were served. When we spoke to someone about the situation, she stated that it’s typical in that town to have bad service. I definitely do NOT recommend this restaurant if you’re looking for good service.
Sorry you had this experience, Lisa! I think your husband was kind enough to reach out with details and additional information on your visit! Thank you both so much for speaking up so we are able to address this!
Food is packed with fantastic flavor. We got the
Chicken pot pie, meatloaf, and spilt a wedge salad. It was very slow to come out. We had a reservation at 5:30 pm. The table service was not attentive as well as well did not have any water left after our salads, and they did not bring any more to the table. Additional, they took our silverware and we had to source new sets when we our meals arrived. The seating arrangement we had was unusually as there is communal style booth with another group.
This was our first meal of our visit. We enjoyed the experience!
Thank you so much!
Our server forgot a bunch of our drinks and was very slow. However the food was very good. We’d probably go back next time we’re in town
Was able to make a reso on open table for 945a.m. but they only opened at 10a.m. Coffee machine broken for breakfast! They finally brought coffee from the basement in urns, but then didnt offer it to the people who originally asked. Eggs were bland - had to hunt down salt ourselves (not offered) but no pepper or hot sauce to be found. Drink deals were good though, and I'm sure it's a lots more fun at night. Wouldn't go for breakfast/brunch again.
It was awesome. Great music. Definitely hit the roof bar.
It was GREAT!!
My husband was able to sign with band in the Restrurant! That was an experience we will never forget!!!
Food is way overpriced, Tennessee lemonade didn't seem to have any liquor in it. Great ambiance and live entertainment was good. Rooftop bar was closed for a private event, so couldn't experience that.
It's good for a large group - we had 8 people and sat comfortably on the first floor. They were out of a lot of food items, including a majority of their BBQ sauces, which was a bummer and confusing since it was 5:45 on a Saturday (compared to the end of the night).
The best brisket ever! Will definitely return and will recommend to my friends.
Great place to take out of town guests for the sights and taste of Nashville! Super view.
