Re: “Chappy's [CLOSED]

Chappy’s in Nashville “specializing” in New Orleans and Creole food, we wanted to see for ourselves. I have not been there for dinner, but I have eaten lunch there and that fried chicken sandwich was very delicious. When we walked in, the vibe was depressing; no one was upbeat and it seemed like everything was moving in slow motion, and the décor was French quarter on a messy budget.

Our server told us about his likes and the specials, and delivered the bread with an array of butters. We looked over the menu and decided to go with an appetizer and soup to start. The fried green tomatoes were just ok a little bland for my taste, but the parmesan cheese, and sauce helped it out. When I saw corn and crab bisque, I had to order it and the soup was good. For entrée, I ordered the chicken ship island (it was a shipwreck) the chicken breast had no flavor, I could not find it at all, and I even looked under the table. I chose not to get the rice du jour; I chose the mixed vegetables and it looked like a hot mess served on a plate. My guest ordered grilled bbq spice shrimp and it was not spicy, but he added the Chappys hot sauce and it worked that out. He loved the rice du jour but all in all it was just ok. Being a New Orleans style restaurant, I saw bread pudding on the menu and really wanted it; however, I no longer had and appetite.

Chappy’s has a plenty of space on the inside and descent parking out back. They also have jazz night and offer cooking classes. It has been open since 2006 and how it has been said to be the best Cajun restaurant in Nashville, but really there is not many around here. The owner is really a cool fun guy who chats with the every guest, but hopefully they can get it together so the place can stick around.

Re: “The Original Nooley's

I have heard such good things about this place but when I went it was either an bad day for them or they had a new cook. I had the red beans tried the red beans and rice and a cup of sausage gumbo. Red beans and rice tasted like I cooked some white rice opened up a can of red beans that had been stirred together with boiled onions and about 3 pieces of sausage. The stuff out of a box at the grocery is even better. The same for the gumbo, there is no depth in the taste, it's just very bland. For such inexpensive ingredients to begin with you would think that they would spend a little more time trying to add some flavor. Isn't that what Cajun is suppose to be?

Re: “Cajun Steamer Bar & Grill

who is running this place..girls act like idiots!! i sat with an empty drink at the bar for 10 min while the almost naked immature bartender played with her friend!! my food was great but i felt like i was in a high school. I wanted to know who was managing out of curiosity so i ask the bartender and she pointed to some ganglly looking man standing at the front door staring into outer space. No wonder these girls do what they want and the service sucks, their boss is an idiot too. In the short time he was standing there he never opened the door, said thank you or good bye to any customers coming or going. It had been rain/snow mix that day and watched as a woman walked in and slipped and almost fell. the manager just looked and said nothing, i was in shock. I think it's time for the owner to clean up the place and send the manager packing. If i eat there again it will be to go!!!

Re: “French Quarter Cafe [Closed]

The food was not authentic and it did not taste good at all. I had what they claim to be a Po'boy with shrimp and it was disgusting. The shrimp were bland.
