We love our time at doughbirds. Whenever there is an issue with our food the management is proactive about it. On a side note not obsessed with menu changes to the salads. But will still definitely continue to go.

About the restaurant
We’re one part soda shop, one part meat-and-three, and one hundred percent bona fide Southern eatery. We cook each meal fresh from scratch daily, following time-tested recipes and honoring our founder’s meat-and-three legacy. Bring the kids around for a treat, grab lunch with friends, or drop by for a shake and fries. And did we mention the pies?

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.

About the restaurant
The Puckett’s roots go way back to the 1950s, and a little grocery store in the village of Leiper’s Fork, Tenn. Ever since then, we’ve been focused on providing friends new and old with great food and Southern hospitality. When it comes down to it, Puckett’s is a community kitchen, with live pickin’ performances just a few feet from your table. Authentic comfort food—barbecue smoked slow ‘n’ low over cherry wood, the home-cooked sides, even a few upscale dishes—is what Puckett’s aims for you to remember! Our philosophy is simple: Real Food, Real People, Real Fun.

Restaurant was great. Food was delicious. Drinks were good! We had a few kids with us and the Food menu, seemed to be a bit, lacking, maybe that is by design bc they don’t want to cater to kids but it is very al’cart and not super easy and functional when navigating multiple children 😁
