Re: “Demos' Steak And Spaghetti House

Demo's is a restaurant that is decent but is stuck in the 1980s. It's also a little on the heavy/high-fat side. It's not bad, but there are lots and lots of better choices in the same price range. If your idea of a good meal is meat-and-starch, you might find it OK, but the problem is it's not even really high-quality meat-and-starch like you'd find at a high-end steakhouse. It's just ... OK. No dish contains any ingredient that could not have been obtained at a Nashville supermarket 30 years ago. If you are looking for a menu that acknowledges that American cuisine has undergone a revolution since cheese toast and chicken-salad-in-a-pineapple was new and exciting ... look elsewhere.

Re: “Caney Fork River Valley Grille

I visited this place for the first time last Sunday and was pleasantly surprised! I ordered 2 pieces of catfish and was able to get one piece blackened and the other one fried. My fried came out great but I have to admit the blackened was a bit bland. Next time I will get both fried. The catfish pond was fun and intersting and the rest of the decor was also awesome. Our waitress was very friendly and on top of things. She let me know that they have All You Can Eat catfish on Wednesdays so I will make it a point to visit again!

Re: “Steamboat Bill's [Closed]

Look I grew up in La... I've eaten seafood my whole life... This is the real deal. fresh seafood, the owner brings it back from La himself. boiled crawfish, fresh shucked oysters on the 1/2 shell,ettofee,gumbo, jambalaya, fried shrimp, oysters.. even frog legs.They have people who seem to be having a good time and still give great service. They have a "off the beaten path" place. it's off main street,like a mile down. Some stuff I like more than others... but it is all off the hook.... THANK GOODNESS I FOUND STEAMBOAT BILLS & My seafood hook up! It is really good food. Everyone Ive taken there loves it just as much as I do.... Hint Hint

Re: “Joe's Place

I passed through there back in the summer and got about what I was expecting...not much. BUT, I went by last week and saw a huge smoker fired up out back that smelld divine. I perceived to go by there after I finished my route that day and am glad to say I was pleasantly surprised. The new guy could answer any question I had about any of the food and let me even try some he had just finished. He said he'll have a new menu by the 1st. He put's his "stamp" on everything that comes out of there. Oh yea, did I mention...It's award winning BBQ. This might just be one of those little "best kept secrets". I'm going back...You might want to consider it too!!! W

Re: “South Street Original Crab Shack, Smokehouse And Treehouse Oyster Bar

I returned to South Street after several years to only to be severely disappointed by the food we ordered.. My parents were visiting from out of town so I wanted to treat them to a "Nashville favorite" and it was anything but that.. Three of us ordered the pumped chicken and it was so dry that after several bites we were all finished. I don't remember the pumped chicken being so unappetizing in the past..My father ordered a steak..well-done. When it came, it very rare, almost raw, and he said that it was the worst steak he had ever had. It was so tough that it was hard to cut. The manager was kind enough to take it off the bill since it took a while to re-cook the meat. Overall, the service was very good and they did try very hard to please...I only hope that this night was an exception. We would hate to end our visits to South Street.

Re: “Rumours Wine And Art Bar [Closed]

I went to rumors last night. I was very dissapointed with it. My friend said it was a great place for mussels. First I thought it was a very high priced restaurant for the amount of food that they give you. We ordered the cheese platter. This came with a few crackers and some slices of cheese and bread. The crackers and the bread were unimpressive and dry. The cheese was tasty. The mussels tasted good but were not out of this world. In all we had two glasses of wine, the cheese and crackers and two orders of mussels (all appetizers) and the bill was $73.00!! I will not go back there. The service was good.

Re: “Jackson's Bar And Bistro

While seemingly chill- Jackson's has a tendency to add-on to its bill. The past two times I have been to Jackson's once at the bar and once outside dining, my bank account showed an increase in the final number of my bill, above the tip. The employees at this resturant add to your bill so they can pocket it. I called the manager who was busy- and never called back...Beware and pay for the sub-standard food with cash.

Re: “Cajun Steamer Bar & Grill

I am 100% Cajun from Lafayette La, and just moved here. My 1st trip to this restaurant was just OK, food not great. Tables were close and we were getting bumped frequently. Why, I'll never know, but I took my wife and 20 yr old daughter there. Horrible experience. Will never go back. Rude waitress. Freezing. Would not reseat us to a table not directly under a vent. Never got to the food, but stand by my 1st trip there. Average.

Re: “Demos' Steak And Spaghetti House

This is my favorite Nashville Restaurant. The service is great. The food is simple, without much fuss, but incredible and a great value. It is a casual, relaxed place that you feel like you can go into dressed up or down. I take all my nashville visitors to this place, and everyone agrees...this place is awesome!

Re: “Joe's Place

Great place to go if you like being sucker punched and called "faggots" by the owner and bouncer. I'm told the owner is good friends with many area cops and enjoys getting blasted drunk at his bar and then starting fights with guys who don't regularly drink there. This seems true considering the cop who took statements told us we'd never win if we pressed charges, but that he's is forced to show up there a lot because of these issues. The "bouncer" hit me so hard that my shoes flew off and I was soon covered in blood. He was 6'5" and weighed about 300lbs but somehow was able to claim it was self defense. I'm 5'8" and 160lbs...right...

Re: “South Street Original Crab Shack, Smokehouse And Treehouse Oyster Bar

Today was our first visit to South Street. We were craving one of our favorite meals; raw oysters and beer. Acme in New Orleans and Goatfeathers in South Walton were out of the question. The service at South Street was well above average. David, our waiter, had good suggestions, and seemed to show up at just the right time. The oysters were delecious. We had three dozen, and would rate them close to any we've had anywhere. Our rating is only 4 because this was our first visit to South Street; if our next visit is as enjoyable, it'll be a solid 5.

Re: “Sky Blue Coffee & Bistro

One of the things I always miss about Asheville, NC, is the Sunny Point diner. The first time I ate at Sky Blue, I couldn't believe the similarities. I am thrilled that this cafe exists on the east side! Note: Sky Blue does, in fact, serve alcohol.

Re: “PM

My date and I asked for a table outside last Friday. It was busy and the Hostess said it would be about 15-20 min. "Sounds great! We'll be at the bar". The Thai Tini was incredible. We were seated in less than 20 min. and our server Tina was the best!! She made great suggestions for our dinner which was delicious (The peanut sauce is awsome!) and she was very attentive and made our evening very delightfull!! Great place!! We will be back!! Thanks PM!!

Re: “Bricks Café

Kind a a big black box room with little to no atmosphere. Food is decently priced and the menu is HUGE. If you want a nice relaxed meal, this is not the place. Once the food is delivered, I think they start a clock in the back to see how quickly they can get you out of the place. Once the check comes, better have you glass full because the refills stop. Don't even ask for a party of 6. I think it overloads their system.

Bad food...the stuffed shrimp is not what you would expect. The service was poor and the place seemed dirty.

Re: “Pancake Pantry

On May 16th I learned on how to be seated quickly at Pancake Pantry. I was having breakfast with friends. The food was good as always. It was raining and there was a line outside. A man and woman entered thru the back door and asked a waitress they knew if she had a table. She seated them in front of everyone else. So next time it is raining and a line, just remember enter thru the back door and ask the tall gray hair lady to seat you.

Re: “Baja Burrito

"A friend introduced me to San Diego style Fish Tacos almost 15 years ago now and I absolutely FELL IN LOVE with them. Since I'm from Ohio, finding the same taste as a San Diego FINS or WAHOO or any number of other places out there has been quite a difficult task. Anytime I visit a city I search online for any place in that city that might serve Fish Tacos and give them a try. Well, I must say, the moment I tasted the Fish Tacos from BAJA BURRITO in Nashville, I knew I had found the exact taste I was looking for. They are as EXACT as anything in San Diego, and eating them was just amazing. It's like San Diego was literally transplanted into the heart of County Music... how wild is that. Not only were the fish tacos just incredible, but the whole experience was an A+ all the way around. I loved the atmosphere. The chips were simply perfect. The guacamole was as good as I've ever had. My wife had a burrito and just loved it. And the staff were very very friendly and helpful. What a great, great experience all the way around. Personally, I'll find a way to get to the Nashville Baja Burrito if I'm within an hour of Nashville... it was that great."
