My shrimp and grits were phenomenal. My only complaint is that I went for Drag Brunch, and it was really loud when she was singing. That's probably more my fault for going at that time.

We had the chance to visit the restaurant on the first night we visited Nashville. Unfortunately the weather was severe and no other patrons were in the restaurant during the entire time we were eating. Given this and the bad weather, we had a great time. The food was really good and different along with the drinks we had. I would definitely return if we would revisit Nashville.

It would be helpful to know at reservation time whether it is during a drag show or not. We made reservation on open table for myself, husband and 12 yr old son, having no clue it was a drag show that night.

We went to Drag'n Brunch for NYE and had so much fun! Vanity was fun, interactive and stayed and talked to our table for a while after her performances were over. It took a while to get our drinks/servers attention, but that was easy to forget with the fun performances going on. Food was great!

The food was delicious. The performance was good as well. The only negative was the waiter who served us. We had to continuously stop him for refills etc but he was readily available to take our plates once we took our last bite. He lacked the attentiveness to his cuatomers. I know we tipped him well even though his service was not up to par. I would revisit again and hope I'm not given the same server.

The food compared to several prior visits was very much below average. The atmosphere seemed darker than usual but maybe that was due to only 2 other tables being used. The four in our group each ordered different entree's and we had a few appetizers and none were of the caliber one should expect for a $100 plus dinner. There are to many excellent restaurants in the entire Nashville area to visit and this will not be one of them again in the future.

we ordered soup & edamame for appetizer. the soup never came (the waiter never said a word about it until asked and then said 'oh yeah, i asked but ...'). the edamame came after the main dishes were served. the garlic shrimp was cloyingly sweet - had to pick the shrimp out because i was starving. we asked if they had brown rice instead of white. they said yes, then put something on the table that had what we think were vegetables in it, didn't taste like brown rice then charged us extra. If you're going to charge folks for brown rice then tell them it's an up charge. felt that was really cheap of them to do..... never been charged for brown rice before. everything else was just ok.... not worth the price for sure. oh and my Passion Fruit Sangria - it was a glass of ice with a little pink juice - don't waste your money.

It was a Tuesday so it was pretty empty. We used a Groupon, which knocked the price down. They actually had a small menu of mock tails, which was what I needed and was VERY tasty. The sushi roll I had fulfilled the whole reason we went here, which was the fact that I wanted some sushi! It was very tasty. My date had the cheeseburger which was VERY flavorful and ALMOST too big to eat it all! Lol!

Suzy Wong's is such a fun brunch spot! There were numerous delectable food selections, including comfort food and Nashville specialities. My crab benedict was wonderful, although a bit on the heavy side. My friend loved the chicken and waffles. The entertainment is the highlight of the brunch. The drag queens perform every 15 minutes and are hilarious! Definitely a must-see for visitors and locals alike.

This place is fun and definitely a novelty for someone who hasn't seen a lot of drag queens. BUT, the Nashville food scene is so good I am disappointed to have wasted one meal here. The food is just alright. The real attraction is the drag show. Only go if you really like drag and don't care about food so much. Good service though.

We've been to Suzy Wong's before and always have a great experience. Everything was right on par this past visit. They were out of pork for the nachos, but substituted with chicken and it was still pretty good. Bonus! They were having a drag show the night we went.

I have been a fan of SW for a long time. Until Sunday. 10/29/2017, my friends and I attended the drag brunch and honestly, it was very basic. I ordered the Fishbowl for 19.00 and although it looked impressive, there was very little alcohol in the mixture. I should have been feeling pretty good after that 19.00 drink but not even a buzz. The drag queen performed twice and it was more of a Jr High talent show gone wrong than a "drag show". Very basic and honestly, not very good. I had the Shrimp and grits which were on point however my friends had the chicken and waffles which should have been called "chicken aweful". There was no flavor other than the syrup that we poured over the dish and it was about as tasteless as the drag show itself.
over all, the drag brunch was pretty bad and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. It was overpriced and poorly done. I paid about the same amount for the Drag Brunch in Miami and it was worth every penny. Take a lesson Suzy Wongs and elevate your game. I suggest a flat rate which includes a show brunch and unlimited drinks. Another idea would be to simply have a drink special and a better selection of flavorful brunch items and a much better show.

Food was excellent. But, we made reservations because the place is hard to get into. We got seated in the very back (into the tribe area, outside of suzy wong’s). We felt like we couldn’t get the true experience and it really bummed us out. There was only one couple back there with us too..very quiet. 😕

Everything about the experience was great besides our greeting at the front door. The hostess claimed we didn't have a reservation, we then showed her our confirmation email from open table and she proceeding to answer by saying "You can come look at my computer right here, you don't have a reservation. You're lucky we're not busy today, we'll see if we can set up a table for you." Other than that our server was wonderful as were all other staff members.

It was not our first time dining here, we enjoyed the drag portion - Vanity was delightful. We also had an amazing server, Cody- and Nick was his fill in while he wrapped up a large table that was leaving. The food was just good tonight, not great. Not sure what was going on, but it was a bit of a disappointment- we bragged on how creative and yummy everything was - and it just wasn't!
