About the restaurant
Our kitchen is open 5-10pm, 7 days a week. 21 + after 8pm.

We always recommend booking a reservation for your party, however we do have limited walk-in availability! For parties greater than 4 people, call ahead, our seating for large parties is very limited. We have a 15 minute grace period for late parties. Please note that your party may receive a time limit if we are busy!

At Jane's, we are serving up re-invented Southern classics with local ingredients, paired with very listenable live music from the next generation of bluegrass and Americana virtuosos. Hide out tonight in East Nashville with a Tennessee-spirit based cocktail and you'll quickly become a friend of Jane's.

Live music starts every night at 8pm.

Cancellation policy: Parties of 8+ will be required to submit a credit card to secure their reservation. In the event of a short notice cancellation (24 hours or less), or a no-show, there will be a charge of 20 dollars per person on said reservation.

21+ after 8pm

Funky cool decor & vibe. Limited menu but everything we ordered was good. I rated noise level as low, but the band was setting up as we were leaving and they have live music almost every night, so if that’s not your thing, this isn’t your place after 8pm. We will definitely come back!

Amazing from top to bottom. Service was exceptional- Tiffany was very great with guiding us through the menu. Food and drinks were 10/10. The musician was awesome as well. Managers stopped by our table multiple times to make sure we were okay. Highly recommend, one of the best experiences Nashville has to offer!

Germantown
About the restaurant
Star Rover Sound is throwing it back to the great American steakhouse, an institution that transcends time and trend. Steak Dinners at Star Rover will offer the complete experience – cut in-house steaks paired with crisp salads and crisper cocktails, bottomless triple-cooked fries and onion rings, fresh-baked dinner rolls, live music, and good times.

Just like the 1970s West Texas steakhouses that Chef/Owner Ford Fry so fondly remembers, guests will be reintroduced to an era when steak dinners weren’t just for special occasions but were an everyday luxury – complete with checkered tablecloths, a candlelit glow, and Sharpies for signing the walls.

About the restaurant
The Stillery is the kind of place you can relax, eat outstanding, fresh food, and enjoy a signature mason jar cocktail.
We serve up amazing brick fired pies, juicy stacked burgers, fresh salads and tantalizing starters. The menu is comprised of what could be best explained as 'a chef's comfort food.'
Our signature cocktails are made with the south's best shines and whiskeys. Looking for an amazing local beer, we have plenty to choose from.

This is the 'Midtown' location at 1921 Broadway.

I sent my wife and her 4 girlfriends here to celebrate her 50th birthday. They had a GREAT time. They haven’t stopped talking about it. Food, service and live music were all 5 star.
