    We loved the view and the food. It was a very cool experience, and I would recommend it to anyone visiting Nashville. No one greeted us when we got there, even though I made a reservation. We seated ourselves and it was more than 20 minutes before a server came over. She was nice, but inattentive.

    The food was amazing! It was a great rooftop the only thing I wished was that you could see Broadway from the table. There was a wall and no tables sat where you could see over the wall down into the street.

    We booked Ole Re and were excited because we love Blake Shelton, but the experience was a major disappointment. Firstly, there was no music - just tables on a roof. And the menu is limited - we thought we were ordering steak - just more of the same appetizers. All levels were closed for a private function, and 3/4 of the top floor too - why did they bother taking our reservation? The only saving grace was our server Aubrey.

    We arrived at reservation time and were promptly seated. We waited for 10 minutes and then had to ask for our server. At this time, we realized that it was only brunch menu on the rooftop so we went down to the restaurant. The wait wasn’t bad, 40 minutes. We were seated and yet again had a long wait before greeted by our waitress. Drink orders were taken and correct on arrival. Appetizer was brought out and was very good. Entree took forever to arrive after the appetizer. First burger was not correct, missing condiments and was not cooked done as asked. Second burger was done and ordered medium. The second burger included mushrooms which the waitress said was a $7 charge, then the worst part was they tasted like cardboard. Third burger was done and ordered medium. Pork sandwich was fine. We were celebrating a 21st birthday and needless to say....very disappointed.

    We made reservations for 1:00pm and didn't realize that this was their brunch time. When we arrived we were seated right away. We found out at this time that it was brunch, which initially was not a problem. We ordered our main eggs from the menu and then went inside for the rest of it. WOW, when we saw that all of the rest of the food fit on to an 8' table and there was almost no selection at all we were hugely disappointed. The service was great but we spent over $50 for brunch and we both left hungry. We will try again when their regular menu is available, but never again during their brunch

    Very disappointed. There is no option for N/A which someone else wrote. I did not stay to eat or even have a drink. I cannot give an accurate review regarding quality of food, service or outdoor view (It was raining). The menu for the Lookout Sky Bar was nothing like the one on the web site menu. When I looked at the web site menu I thought Great, Ole Red burgers and drinks with a view. The waitress told us she understood we were not happy with the situation and nicely told us we could to back downstairs and get on the wait list for seating, although we had reservations for The Lookout Sky Bar Restaurant and were disappointed there was consideration made. The Lookout Sky Bar was pretty but nothing that I would have considered making reservations to had the facts been indicated on the web site.

    Was disappointed in the menu and cost.poor atmosphere. No one in the restaurant but us. Doesn’t compare to Ole Reds downstairs.Probably will not try again unless there is a change. We were led to believe it was like Ole Reds but was completely opposite.Doesnt fit in with all the Honky Tonk on Broadway. I guess it’s not part of Ole Reds which we assumed it was!!Sorry

    Was not impressed with the food menu. “Lobster roll” was nothing more than small lobster pieces on a dry bun. Not worth the price. Waitress was not friendly. Went there for a romantic dinner and was highly disappointed.

    Sadly, I can not find any reason to recommend this place. It was so overpriced and the food was average at best. I think if Blake Shelton were to evaluate it himself he would not like having his name on the building. We were so excited to eat on the rooftop and disappointed in every way.

    Was so incredibly disappointed in this visit. Made reservations at least two months in advance and two weeks before our trip, was called to change my reservation to the night before because the roof top bar was going to be closed that night. No problem, get there and no reservation to be found and the roof top closed again. Said we’ll try to get you in. Seriously?? Luckily showed my phone with the confirmation. They did get us a table after a wait. Was just very disappointed in the visit on a whole. I totally hyped this place up to the five friends and was completely let down. Waitress was sweet and did give good service. Food was just “meh” Maybe it’s just too new of a place and still has a few peaks and valleys to get through

    Dinner at Ole Red was a bit disappointing. Overpriced food and drinks. Odd food menu. Ordered a bottle of wine and it took 15 minutes to tell us they didn't have it in stock, chose another one and that took another 10 minutes to arrive. Our food got there before we got the wine. I hate that. Half the tables were reserved but no one sitting there the entire time we were there. It seemed a bit unorganized but our waitress was really sweet and attentive. The Rooftop was a nice setting for dinner but canned music not live. The lobster poboy was all claw meat and with no other lobster dishes on the menu we had to wonder what happened to the lobster tail meat? The crab salad was just ok. Won’t be back and won’t recommend. Sorry Blake, I still love you but you need to fix a few things.
