12th & Porter

 4 star(s)  (06/10/2000)
“The food at this little restaurant is unique, slightly Indian, while at the same time true American. Don't let the outside fool you, it is not the 'neighborhood bar' it appears. There is unusual artwork on the walls, changing often. Their appetizers are mostly vegan while their butterfly steak f... ”

Aquarium Restaurant

“The most horrible dining experience we have ever had! Terrible service! Mediocre food. Grossly overpriced! This was the first time we have ever complained and the manager did not deal with things the way we would have liked. I would not recommend this place to anyone.”

Athens Family Restaurant

 4 star(s)  (08/16/2011)
“Ate here after seeing it on triple D on food network. Great little family style breakfast place, not fancy but cute and clean. Paradise French toast was really good and the Crab Benedict was fresh. The service was friendly, would eat here again if I lived nearby. We're on a road trip to CA from NC a... ”

BB Kings Restaurant

 2 star(s)  (08/04/2009)
“Come for the music, not the food. I took my wife to BB Kings to hear some live music. The house band was performing that night and they were great. I wish I could say the same thing about the food. I ordered the combo plate (wings, ribs and potato skins) while my wife played it safe with a burge... ”

Belle Meade Buffet Cafeteria

 5 star(s)  (03/09/2008)
“This is a Northerner writing this review. I am Canadian in fact but I have a Souther Belly. This is one of the greatest dinning experiences of my life. This is the epitome of Southern cooking. I love me some southern vegetable plates and i have had no finer than at the Belle Meade. The selection... ”

“My sister and I went into have a drink at the bar. After waiting there for close to 10 minutes while the bartender ignored us, we were finally served another bartender who happened to walk back there. We are served our drinks finally, and everything is fine while we drink them. When I finish my drin... ”

“This is a great place to eat when in Downtown Nashville. The food and service are good and has only gotten better over the years. My only complaint is that I have to pay for parking when eating Downtown. You will not go wrong eating here and if you are a visitor then I would even suggest this pla... ”

Blue Moon Lagoon

“My very first review - BECAUSE I WANT TO SEE THIS RESTAURANT STAY! Waitress didn't know the fresh catch of the day. After returning from the kitchen, she said, "It's Red Snapper and we've had a lot of compliments on it." With that recommendation, we ordered it. Coming from Florida, I can def... ”

“This is our favorite Nashville restaurant. All seating is outdoors on a floating dock at Rock Harbor Marina. Fabulous gourmet taste and presentation. We would love to keep this one a secret, but it is too good not to share.”

Blue Moon Lagoon

 5 star(s)  (09/22/2007)
“Great place for a night out - fantastic waterfront ambiance, meal, drinks and entertainment. Fantastic roll and roll band Friday and Saturday nights - personality plus! Food very enjoyable but slightly overpriced for the quality. Great staff and service. Appeals to all ages and socio groups. Overall... ”

Bob Evans Farm

“Sunday lunch on 8/9 around 1:30 was so slow. I asked for honey mustard, it never came, so I had to get it myself. We asked the cashier for ice cream to go, she called it in and it never came. After 15 minutes I asked for it and it had been put in the refrigerator. Who ever put it there did not let ... ”

Bourbon Street Blues & Boogie Bar

 4 star(s)  (10/06/2009)
“I was there about ten years ago. My manager and I had gone out to eat at Logan's Steakhouse first then went over to Printer's Alley. I ate the most delicious Gumbo I have ever tried. The drinks were good, too. The music was excellent. I even bought a CD by a local musician. The restaurant is a bit c... ”
