The host staff was good, the ambience was fun (loud), which we expected, food was good, line dance instructor was good, restroom attendant was very friendly. The big let down was that our server did a minimal job at best. We sat with empty beverages for too long and had to seek her out to get service.

We went early on a Sunday. We were there when they opened so seating, service and noise level were excellent. Food was better than expected. Line dancing was great fun!

Favorite place in Nashville for entertaining kids/teens. The line dancing is SO much fun! The food and drinks are great too!!! I LOVE that you can make a reservation on open table...the first time I didn’t know and waited over an hour!

This was our first outing in Nashville and first stop was Wildhorse Saloon for a bachelorette party. We had a great time. Service was great. We also noticed how family friendly it was. We can't wait to return!

We went to enjoy a nice family night in Nashville line dancing and making memories. However, the night we went there was live music being played (which we expected) but it was all screamo music (which we did not expect). It was so loud we ourselves were screaming at each other to talk. Now, our food was great! We did learn two line dances in between the screamo sessions and that was fun, but.. not what we expected. Once we returned to our table however after line dancing our food and drinks were taken from our table. We then had to pay full price for our only half eaten food. Oh, and I can’t forget that our service was absolutely awful. I even went to the bar twice for my own drinks because our server was nowhere to be found (Krissy). I highly doubt we will ever return.

We were seated right away. Moderately busy. Ordered the BBQ stuffed baked potato for me, and the bacon wrapped filet for her. Also an appetizer of fried pickles... they so good!!!! Steak was cooked perfectly! The band that was playing was great! Our waitress was fairly new but she did fine! Would definitely recommend this place to anyone.

Great place to get that Nashville feel. Food and service was good. You can get some line dancing lessons and then join in for a few songs. Some great talent plays here also.

Too many kids. Since when is a saloon a school yard?
Food was fair to poor. The server was great.
All that work to get a reservation for a terrible time.
They had a woman on for all the live entertainment... she was terrible.

Well they forgot the Southern Hospitality. Our server just couldn’t be bothered to be nice. The drinks were weak as hell! I did a flight of moonshine and 4 drinks, no buzz, all sugar! I got the signature glass for $16 and refills were $11, when I ordered an different drink they charged me $12 because the refill only applies to the same drink! What kind of place is going to chisel you for $1, seriously, $1! A family of four the bill was $172.00. Can’t do it!

Had a reservation and arrived about 1/2 hour earlier than the time. Sat in open seating waiting for a table and enjoyed the music. 15 minutes FTEs our reservation time, we were still not seated (the buzzer didn’t go off). We were approached by a great waitress who encouraged us to eat where we were. We’ve did eat there. Food was good. Would like reservation honored.

You go to the Wildhorse for the music, the dancing, the overall experience. The food is just ok and it's pricey. But, it's a touristy place and my 10-year-old got a kick out of drinking at $12 root beer out of a plastic cowboy boot.

We had 3 tweens with us and this was a great place for all of us to dance and eat and enjoy some adult beverages. We went to the 12:30 line dance lesson and decided to return for the evening concert. The fooseball tables were fun too.

My sisters and I enjoyed our Sunday evening visit to the Wildhorse Saloon. Be aware that the "saloon" part is a little misleading because the dance floor was filled with little kids dancing around while the parents ate and watched. We were excited about the line dancing lessons and they did not disappoint. A good time was had by all! For dinner, one sister enjoyed the fried chicken (yum!), and the other two had salads (so we could dance without our food getting cold). The waitress was great, she put a marker on our table that said we were our dancing so don't clear the table yet! She was busy but very attentive. The gift shop was fun to wander around in while waiting for our table to be ready. Since it was my birthday, I was treated to a tasty chocolate cake for dessert! What a nice surprise!! Definitely stop in here if you're in town with your family.

The food was excellent. I would strongly recommend the fried pickles as an appetizer and the Nashville hot chicken as an entree. The bbq dishes are also terrific. The service was a bit slow. That was the only downfall.

Large venue, just around the corner from the much smaller and noisier Broadway joints. Went here for lunch, and while the decor was fun and the service was great, the food needs improvement.

Fun experience. They allow kids to enjoy it until a certain time. So that worked perfectly for us. Great atmosphere.
A vegetarian option (other than steamed veggies) would be great added to the menu.

My husband I dined at the Wildhorse while in Nashville. We loved the atmosphere, service, and food. There was a great country western band playing during dinner and lots of young people and families up line dancing together. Even though we're retired, it was wonderful to be in a "clean" environment that welcomed families and those under 21 to come out and have fun! Great atmosphere and unique experience!
