He was very pleasant just not attentive to us at all. Every table around us that sat down at same time f finished 45 minutes before us. I had to ask him for more drinks, ask him where was our food, and finally had to signal him for our check. He never once came to check on us. We always had to flag him down including to find out what was taking us so long to get our food (almost 90 minutes after we ordered).

Skull's Rainbow Room was by far the best in all ways. The food, music, atmosphere and our waiter, Parker, were all fabulous. We were so glad we picked this restaurant to try. We will definitely be back.

Our server was super friendly and very attentive. We tried a few things she suggested and all of it was delicious. Most notably was the eggplant, prime rib empanadas and the lemon cake. This place has a very cool vibe and I would recommend it to anyone looking for something a bit edgy and cool with upscale food/cocktail options. It is a bit dark inside but I think that adds to the vibe. We will definitely be back!

My food was literally inedible. Could not cut roast chicken or asparagus with a knife. It was a lot of money to eat in a dive bar. It was so dark I couldn't read the menu without a flashlight. A better place to drink than eat.

It’s on the pricier side for a brunch but is well worth every penny. We had the Bananas Foster French toast and the Steak and Biscuits. French toast was out of this world and the little filet steaks on the biscuits were so tender and flavorful. If you are foodie and don’t mind spending a little cash, it is well worth your time. Service is great, all the wait staff are extremely friendly, and the brunch music is perfect. It can be slightly loud, but it fits the atmosphere, so not a lot of quiet conversations but you can still talk among the table.

Food was average and they’re on a a hurry for you to leave. I sent 5 emails and never got an answer. After I called and left a message to move my reservation, I got a phone call back. Horrible customer service!

We meet some friends who had moved to Nashville. It was their first time there but we are all going back. The food was inventive and absolutely delicious! It was a little pricey but the portions were generous. The only negative was the tables are a little small. Overall one of the best restaurants I have ever been to.

We ordered beignets with our drinks. We got our drinks and then got our entrees very quickly. We mentioned that we had not received our beignets again. After we ate our meal we decided that the beignets would be dessert. My husband asked for coffee with our beignets. We got the beignets, on the house because it was almost closing time, but he never received his coffee. Also, if there is a menu item that is not available the server should tell the table when drinks are ordered and not wait until someone orders the unavailable item to let them know. That would save some time. We had a good time, although it was hard to talk while the band was playing but they were very good. I've never heard Taylor Swift or Elton John played by a jazz trio but it worked. We did have a good time and agreed that we would most likely return.

It was gross, and it was over $40 so you would think it would have been decent. Didn't want to send it back because it was Mother's day brunch and didn't want to make things worse. Won't be back after this.

The food was excellent. Loved the atmosphere! Our waiter, Parker, was excellent! Efficient but friendly, funny, and informative. You felt welcome and special. We asked for him on our return. Try the weekend brunch with entertainment, excellent. I couldn’t be happier. Reservations a must, but we noticed there was normally a table or two vacant, so you might try just dropping in. If you can, sit in the dinning area. There is a back bar area with tables, but you will lose the restaurants feel there.

Everything we ordered was cooked to perfection. I inadvertently judge an establishment on the cleanliness of its restrooms and it was pristine. Just be aware that the noise level is very high, but it’s a very cool vibe and a fun night out with friends.

We were sat at our table very promptly and helped soon after. The cocktails were amazing! And when the food arrived...in my opinion, words don't do it justice. Overall I was very pleased with the whole experience.

I had heard nothing but great things about Skull's, but last night was an absolute disappointment. Service was horrendous to put it lightly. The drinks were decent. The low country shrimp cocktail was just plain old shrimp cocktail. Nothing low country about it. When we were going to order entrees, we told the waitress we needed just a minute or two to make up our minds. 20+ minutes later after being jostled and bumped by other waitstaff and earnestly attempting to get our waitresses attention, she finally came by. By then, our we had no desire to spend another cent at this establishment. We paid and left. Kicker, we had asked to sit in the pit area where there were about 5 two-tops open, only to be denied and sat at a booth. We were just two people. It made zero sense.

My wife and I ordered the specials, a creole steak filet, and the fish (similar to sea bass). Both were very average. Mac and Cheese was warm at best, and we sent it back for reheating (which we NEVER do). Wedge salad was good but very overdressed. Desserts were excellent as were the specialty cocktails. Overall, it had the potential to be a special meal, but just too many “misses”. With that said, the bar, entertainment, and overall service was very good, and we’d give the place another shot when in Nashville again.
