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.

Really nice little place to pick up lunch. I had a hamburger, fries, and chocolate shake. Everything was delicious! The waitress we had was also very friendly. All around great atmosphere and food.

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!

Re: “B.B. King's Blues Club

Average food, bad service, crummy plastic decor...not really what you'd expect at these prices. The music was just...OK.
I'm sure they just rent BB Kings name and that he doesn't have anything to do woth the running of the place. better take a loom Riley! Its your name on the marquee!

Re: “Cajun Steamer Bar & Grill

We love the food and atmosphere. Not what I'd call tradtional cajun, but really good. Just don't go during rush hour. We LOVE their Chargrilled Oysters. They just need to serve bread on the side without charging extra.

Re: “Past Perfect [Closed]

Our favorite restaurant during our Nashville vacation. The food was excellent - from sandwiches to spaghetti. Wonderful bread. Atmosphere was very welcoming and we enjoyed chatting with the owner. Will definitely recommend to all our friends visiting the Nashville area.

Re: “Jackson's Bar And Bistro

Ashley's review is probably BS. What's more likely is that Ashley doesn't realize that when you pay your bill with a credit card, they preauthorize for the amount on the check before tip is added. When you add your tip it doesn't show up until the transaction settles with the bank a day or two or three later. They probably didn't call her back because they looked at the receipt and saw that both times they charged for exactly the amount she signed for. In addition, Ashley is probably mildly retarded.

Re: “Ri'Chard's Louisiana Cafe

This place rocks. The food and music are great. The service is excellent. They have a treasure chest full of toys for the little ones. Richard the owner is originally from Louisiana and knows his Cajun cooking. They are also open on Saturdays from 12:30 to 9:00 so you can enjoy lunch and listen to some great up and coming writers at the Songwriters showcase hosted by Gary Cavanaugh. Some no. 1 writers have been known to drop in! Aieee and great etouffee!!

Re: “Urban Flats [Closed]

I don't feel it's really fair to give a restaurant only 1 star based on your dislike of the parking situation.

Here's a REAL review of the actual restaurant.

Pleasant interior, much sleeker and more upscale than you'd expect based on the menu. Food is fresh and freshly prepared. Decent wine selection. Nothing knocked my socks off, but I've never been disappointed with what I ordered. A lot will depend on whether you like the concept and flavor combinations (I do). A perfectly decent casual chain concept that feels more sophisticated than a casual chain concept, and a good choice for lunch or an inexpensive dinner choice before heading out to downtown events.

Re: “Ri'Chard's Louisiana Cafe

So disappointed. As a Louisiana native, I love celebrating Mardi Gras. Made a reservation to celebrate at Ri'chard's. Drove 35 minutes to get there, walked in, the music was playing, people were wearing their beads, the band was setting up, the atmosphere was festive. We were ready to party! Then, the waitress led us down the street into an empty room with no beads or decorations, no music, no other people. Needless to say, we left and headed to Larrivierre's on the Square in Gallatin where we were welcomed into their Mardi Gras celebration! We feasted on delicious, authentic Cajun food and decided to eliminate Ri'chard's from our future dining choices. Too bad that one "AH SHOOT" wipes out a thousand "ATTABOYS!"
