  • Enjoyed Robert’s and the talented musicians playing there! I would definitely recommend this iconic bar.  more »
  • This place was recommended by a staff member at the Country Music Museum because of the band playing that night (Don Kelley Band). We got there early so got good seats and had a couple of burgers...  more »

  • This place is a must stop in when in Nashville. The entertainment was rocking, fun and well, entertaining! Interactive and just the right amount of loud! Quick friendly service, I just ordered a beer and it was cold and cheaper than the other places I had wandered in along that strip. The crowd was engaged and having a great time on a Friday night just about happy hour. Great place.
  • We've been here several times when on Broadway. Smallish sort of place. Have to sit so you can see the stage and listen to the music. The burgers are the real deal. Made fresh and just the right amount of greasy that makes a burger great! With the fries or onion rings, makes everything even better. The music was good ol honky took country & western. Good place just to hang for a while. Not a place for big groups trying to sit together. I would find someplace else if you have small kids with you. If you're looking for a "Nashville" sort of place, this is a good place to start..
