Re: “Chef's Market Cafe and Take Away

We love Chef's Market. I love the 3 salads plate but we usually try something different each trip. The customer service is A+, the desserts delicious, and the food, the best!

Re: “Chef's Market Cafe and Take Away

I LOVE Chef's Market! The hot chicken salad is my favorite dish, and whenever I have them cater an event, I make sure to get this. But, then you can't go wrong with anything, since EVERYTHING they serve is great!

Re: “Bricks Café

I arrived at Brick’s on Nolensville Road at 6:35pm, September 25th, to meet a friend for dinner after work. I entered the restaurant and informed the hostess that I was there to meet a friend whom I did not see yet, and that I would wait until my friend arrived before requesting seating. I then exited the restaurant to wait outside since the inside waiting area is quite small.

I strolled leisurely through the sunlit parking lot to a sidewalk that runs parallel to the parking lot. When I reached the end of the short sidewalk, I turned to walk alongside the trees lining the bank of Mill Creek and was about to complete the circuit back to the front of the restaurant to meet my friend when I was confronted by a gentleman who I assume was the manager.

He inquired the reason for my presence and I politely explained to him that I was awaiting the arrival of a friend for dinner and motioned towards her vehicle which had just entered the lot. He then informed me that I was waiting “too close to the cars in the parking lot” and abruptly instructed me to “go somewhere else.” I instantly and politely agreed to leave the lot, and he stood guard as my friend and I pulled away to eat instead at Southside Grill a couple of blocks away.

We will not be back to Bricks.

Re: “B.B. King's Blues Club

WORST service EVER. Tried to have dinner before Americana Awards show. Waitress screwed up drink order (didn't know the difference between Pale Ale and Dos Perros) Food didn't arrive 45 minutess after placing order and ended up going to panera and being late for show.

Re: “Rippy's Smokin' Bar & Grill

Not sure which BBQ place the other reviewer went to but it definitely wasn't rippy's... Service was horrible, I felt like I was imposing on the staff to ask for a refill on my flat soda. I had to drink soda because the beer they brought me was warm. Ribs were dried out and a big let down considering they boast to have the best in Nashville. I never write negative reviews but had to on this one. Open for other suggestions!

Re: “Bricktop's

The steak frittes with herb butter is one of the best you can get in town!

Re: “Demos' Steak And Spaghetti House

The grilled salmon was dry and rather tasteless. Our table placement was very poor, it was later-8:30 or so, is that late? I suppose the staff was ending their day and getting doing prep work for the next day.
I was lucky enough to have a delightful view of the inside of the grimy looking kitchen? I could see a waiter with his pants undone tucking in his shirt, a waitress emptying garbage cans then mopping the floor, then she proceeded to sweep under a few tables, several waitresses were rattling around with salt and pepper shakers... It wasn't that crowded and certainly there may have been other tables available-even if we had to wait a few minutes would have been more preferred than the terrible table we had. My husband enjoyed the steak he was served and we loved the spinach appetizer.

Re: “Steamboat Bill's [Closed]

I take my family to this place every week. We love it and know all the people who work there. The crawfish is outstanding as is the catfish and gumbo. Bill takes personal care of the products and the preparation. We highly recommend this restaurant. It IS the real deal in Cajun food.

Re: “Ri'Chard's Louisiana Cafe

I went on a Sunday morning and couldn't have been more disappointed. The place was still showing signs of the night before. I ordered eggs benedict and got a combination of a cold, dry english muffin, cold ham, something that resembled an processed egg product, flat and tasteless, and topped with a congealed sauce. We were told immediately that they were out of jambalaya and shrimp although others around us were ordering shrimp. I think the community night life and cajun food is probably acceptable and maybe even good, but we we won't go back to find out. I got the impression that because of their reputation, our meal- or lack of, just didn't count. We were charged full price though we didn't eat it. Sorry patrons.

Re: “Nero's Grill

I am using the recipe for Nero's Famous Scalded Corn Cakes today with my fish. I have used this recipe since in came out in the February 1976 issue of Ford Times magazine. My husband found the recipe and suggested that we try it since he doesn't eat hushpuppies. We live in middle Georgia and have never been to the restaurant in Nashville but love the corn cakes.

Re: “Jackson's Bar And Bistro

The service was okay, but friendly, and the food was great. A great atmosphere, whether it is for a casual date or just going out to eat with friends.

Re: “Bricks Café

HAIR IN MY FOOD!
First off--let me say that I WAS a loyal customer to Bricks. We eat at the Brentwood location probably 3-5 times/ month and we also eat at or get take-out from the Nolensville Road location 3-5 times/month for the past year+.

This past Sunday, while I was dining at the Brentwood/Franklin Road location with family, we had the worst experience and because of it, will NOT be dining at Bricks ever again.

I found a nasty hair in my steamed vegetables. It was so intertwined into a piece of broccoli that when I picked up the hair, the broccoli came with it. Now, I will admit that I have medium length hair and it was not pulled back that afternoon. However, if my hair fell onto the plate, one would think that I would be able to pick the hair up off the top of the food and remove it. This piece of hair, as I stated before, was intertwined in the head of the broccoli. I doubt it fell off of my head and got that tangled around a piece of food.

I called the manager (who might also be the owner? tall, big belly, bad attitude) over to the table to show him the hair in my food. The only word (besides jerk) that comes to mind is completely APATHETIC! He could care less. I wasn't rude, I wasn't ugly, I wasn't really even that upset. I just wanted him to know that somehow hair was getting into their food. Because, let's get real--mistakes happen. His reaction----"there is no way that could have happened. Our vegetables come to us fresh in a sealed bag." Okay--so a human with hair doesn't package them? A human with hair doesn't get them out of the package when they are cooked? A human with hair doesn't plate them? He NEVER apologized. He acted as if he could care less. He didn't offer to refund the meal....nothing! In fact, I saw him over behind the hostess stand talking to our server & the hostess with a look of total smirk on his face. After that point, our server never spoke to us as she came back to the table. No offer for refills, nothing. They, of course, did not refund the meal. As we were leaving, the hostess just looked at us and did not speak. They acted as if we did something wrong. The manager/owner saw us getting up from our table and turned and walked to the back of the restaurant so he wouldn't have to talk to us as we were leaving.

Last I checked, the restaurant business is pretty competitive. Obviously, this guy doesn't care. The worst customer service I have seen in a long time. Because of his bad attitude (not the hair), they have lost our business.

Re: “Caney Fork River Valley Grille

We were in Nashville for car parts with our grandsons and I had seen this advertised so we decided to go. The kids have begged to return every weekend since so we will go back this weekend. Don't remember a resturant we have enjoyed as much, food is better at some others but all in all this is well worth going to and keep going back to. We sure will. ////Food 4
atmosphere value overall 5

Re: “Joe's Crab Shack

My first experience at Joes' was at Nashville. Excellent staff and service. The menu is full of the best seafood. There is other choices, but if you love seafood, you will love Joes'. They have a huge selection of the best crabs available anywhere. Every size appetite is offered a big selection. From a bucket of shrimp to my favorite the one and only "Bean Town Bake" Which includes not one but two whole lobsters throw in some clams, shrimp, corn on the cob, sausage, onion all served in a big roasting pan. Everything was cooked to perfection! I can sum up my experience at Joe's Crab Shack in three words. "I LOVE IT" When I returned home I immediately went to their website and found another location closer to me. I have been there about 6 times or I should say I drove there just to eat at Joes' 5 times and once I was in near there. It is about an hour and 45 min drive. Easy 7 out of 5 stars!
