Re: “360 Burger

This was a great place to visit. The food was great, the service was amazing and the live music was like phenominal. I would definitely go back.

Re: “JC's Bullseye Sports Bar

My husband and I used to enjoy coming to this bar...a casual place to get out of the house and come to, have a few drinks while interacting with the friendly staff and watching a ball game on tv. We used to live down the road but bought a second home recently and hadn't been in several months... we went in this weekend and didn't recognize anyone. We were asked at the door whether we wanted to pay a cover or pay $10 for all you can drink draft beer for a few hours. We'd done this in the past, and agreed to do it again... we've always tipped the staff well knowing we'd paid our $10 and they took care of refilling our cups. We came to the bar intending on ordering dinner along with our drinks while watching a few football games. The strange feeling set in from the minute the daytime bartender about to leave came and asked me if she could get me a drink. I told her I'd like a Bud Light as we'd paid for the beer at the door. She apparently was unaware of this, and was very unfriendly as she turned to ask a male bartender what the "beer deal" was. Then she growled at me inquiring as to if we need 2 cups so she could get them in 1 trip (my husband was in the restroom). We have NEVER had an issue with staff in the past, and this didn't set well with me. We asked for Bud Light but I saw her get us Miller Lite... we didn't say anything, although neither of us are fans of Miller Lite. We drank it not wanting to cause a scene until my husband asked for a second beer. We asked for Bud Light and the bartender- tall, about 6'2, gray hair, mid-40's- poured Miller Lite and brought it back. When we asked about it he got very angry... apparently the Bud Light keg was having a problem. It wouldn't have been a big issue had he explained it to us (as is normal with customer service) and informed us they were about to attempt to fix it. He made a snide remark about how we had the "free beer" so we should be grateful to get whichever draft beer they chose to give us. This has never been the case before, and had we known this was the response paying our $20 would have gotten us, we would have declined and ordered our drinks one at a time. The bartender then proceeded, WITHIN OUR EARSHOT, to tell 2 females that we had no right to complain about Miller Light with our $10...this was completely unnecessary and classless! My husband and I due to long work hours don't get to get out much together, and given it's the first season of football, just wanted to hang out. Anyway, 1 of the females (blonde) who apparently is the bartender's girlfriend came over to apologize and asked us to be patient since she was the reason he was in a bad mood. I've worked in customer service, and your personal probelms should NEVER be taken out on customers. I am APPALLED at how we were treated... we used to patronize this location quite frequently, but will not anymore. If I was a bar owner, would absolutely want to know this was how my customers were being treated. He began yelling and cursing at both my husband and I, and while we were preparing to leave, THREW US OUT! Wow... I guess we'll stay closer to home and go to better establishments. How embarrassing JC's Bullseye, and shame on you...

Re: “Chase's Sports Bar & Grill

This could be a great club...nice d├ęcor, great dance floor and PA/lights. Unfortunately the club has placed them into a smoky-"biker/sports" bar niche, limiting the scope of the crowd they might be able to attract. They have pretty good food but a very limited menu. If they would shift their focus to being a restaurant with great food that had live music, and featured activities, they would attract a broader spectrum of people, who would travel greater distances to the club (that would not do so for a smoke filled music venue, with a only a typical bar food menu). I hope Chase figures out the correct formula to make this club successful. The Middle TN music scene could use a good vibrant high class music venue in the Hendersonville area.

Re: “Joe's Place

If you haven't been to Joe's in a while head over and give them another shot! They've completely redone their menus. They now feature speciality craft cocktails and food made in house from scratch! Only bar in Green Hills that has karaoke as well!

Re: “The Row

Favorite brunch/lunch spot. Great atmosphere, never too crowded & the food is so yummy. The menu offers a good variety and whether you try one of their great (but gigantic) salads or one of their barbecue items, you won't be disappointed.

Re: “DeSano Pizza Bakery

Favorite pizza place in Nashville...seems like nobody knows it exists. I bring somebody new with me every time I go & they all fall in love with it!! Amazing pizza (the crust is perfect) & the biscotti is to die for. They play the music WAY too loud in the dining area but it doesn't bug me.

Re: “Tamarind Indian Bistro

Tamarind's is a fine place to eat: savory lamb vindaloo, delicately flavored biryani, fluffy naan, puffy poori and tasty aloo gobi.

Re: “The Groove Records

The best record store in town! They've got a great selection from soul to punk to local artists, and the folks that work there are awesome. Plus they have in-stores with awesome bands.

Re: “Alegria Mexican Restaurant and Tequila Bar

This restaurant is by far the best Nashville has to offer in the Mexican/Latin fare. Everything is fresh, starting with the salsa and chips. I highly recommend it if you are looking for an elevated Mexican meal that goes beyond the Tex-Mex.

Re: “International Market And Restaurant

I dont know how ANYONE can give this place anything else except 5 or more stars. I love their food. Exspecaly the shu- mi, Bamboo shoots & Chicken in curry sauce, fried rice, beef with green peppers and other delights. Chicken on a stick, egg rolls so much more delicious food I could eat it all. It has a very uniquie atmosphere. The people there are always friendly and omg the smell of the food makes your mouth water before you even see the food, GO THERE DON'T MISS OUT. A loyal diner for many many years!!!!

Re: “Sip Cafe

On a hot afternoon, swing by here and grab some delicious Mikes Ice cream. They have a fun variety of flavors... may I suggest coffee and red velvet cake! Super rich and creamy! Small cups start at $3.50

This cute little coffee shop also offers some local art to enjoy while waiting line, and if you like it, at home. It's right next to Mitchell Delicatessen and within walking distance of a few other cool vintage/artsy shops.

Re: “Bailey and Cato Family Restaurant

The words "deep fried cornbread" echoed in my mind for months after reading an article about Bailey and Cato on the Bites blog. The other day, i just so happened to be in the neighborhood and decided to give it a go. It was a low key Sunday afternoon, not to busy and as I waited in line, I pondered the menu. The special of the day? Brown gravy meatloaf with two veg for $6? Classic fried chicken with two veg $7 ($7.5 for white meat)? or do i go the BBQ route. The pork shoulder sandwich sounded good too (around $4.50). Decisions, decisions. As i approached the front counter, I could visually begin to narrow down my options. In the end, I opted for the smoked white meat chicken ($7.5). For my two sides i got greens and creamed corn, and of course, the reason this establishment had beckoned to me in the first place, the deep fried corn bread. With a bottle of water, the tab was 9 bucks and some change. I paid, grabbed my food and headed for a table outside.

Overall, it was not the culinary adventure I had hoped. The chicken was dry, really dry. I know it was white meat chicken, but it was DRY. The flavor of the chicken was awesome, deep and robust. The greens were good. The corn was tasty, and the deep fried cornbread was good, but a bit bland. A side of honey for dipping would have been nice.

Will I go back? Yes, with a maybe...
