Re: “Ms. Kellis Karaoke Bar

This is a poorly ran bar. The employees are nice but "Ms. Kelli" herself is a very rude person. Drinks are priced well but its the poor service of the owners that make the experience bad. Will never go to Ms. Kelli's again.

Re: “Bound'ry Restaurant

After having a wonderful experience at the bar we were seated to experience 1 star service. After having to choose from a limited menu.... Some food came out cold and others came out just plain inedible. We did have a party of 8 and knowing how that can be I can understand some confusion. After waiting nearly 1 hour and 45 minutes for our bill WE had to search for a manager.. The managers were just as confused as the waiter... There was nothing they would do other than pay for a round of drinks while they figured bills out (which was nice) but nothing other.. After bad food and bad service we will not be setting foot back in this restaurant... Please don't waist your money or time.. There are other restaurants in town to spend your time and money!

Re: “3rd & Lindsley

We had three tickets for the Mavericks show, which had been postponed twice. It was scheduled to start at 8 pm, but we showed up at 6 pm, because we knew from experience that good seats would be gone early.
We stood in a long line, and when we got in, there were NO seats left. The lower area, in front of the stage was completely empty of tables. People looking for seats were forced to stand, elbow to elbow, in any space they could find.
Because we simply could not stand for 4-5 hours to get through the show, we simply left. We are out the $60+ for the tickets, and 3rd and Lindsley is out not only the $100 or so we would have spent, but also any future income from us.
I will NEVER go back!

Re: “Ri'Chard's Louisiana Cafe

This was bay far the worst dining experience I have ever had! My wife and I went to Ri'Chards on a Saturday night and the place was nicely filled with locals who seemed to be enjoying the music, but not the high priced lack luster food. I could smell the old frying grease so strongly you think we would have known not to order food either. We got the worse sevice, which included bot getting napkins or silverware. My wife order gumbo (IT WAS SERVED COLD and looked very dark and gritty). The jambalaya was some overcooked boxed rice thaw was cold and mushy with tough overcooked and probably old chicken and sausage. To top it off we got the racist stare the entire time we endured this meal.

AVOID THIS PLACE!!!!!!!

Re: “Ms. Kellis Karaoke Bar

I will never go back to this place again. They have a huge sign that says "Karaoke" and they claim to have thousands of songs, but after 10 pm you can only choose from about 1/4 of them. That's right, they don't tell you this up front but they will not let you sing any song that they consider a "slow" song after 10 pm. The Guy running the Karaoke has a god complex, and so does the Lady at the bar. When I asked her about the Karaoke policy and why I couldn't sing the 3 doors down song "here without you" (which is NOT a slow song) she told me that if I didn't like it I could go somewhere else, and I could not have a refund on the beer even though I didn't ask for a refund. Nowhere is it posted that you can't sing whatever you want after 10 pm. I am a local guy and I have never encountered such unfriendly people anywhere else in Nashville. I would also like to add that I do not drink much, so this was not an issue of me being some drunk guy that they had to treat this way. I am actually a very friendly and social person with a lot of friends and I can tell you that I was extremely surprised by the bartenders attitude as I was very nice to her. Honestly, the karaoke was no big deal. I can live with or without it, but the way that they talked to me and told me that I could leave if I didn't like it was unacceptable.

Re: “Buck Wild Saloon

Eddie, the GM, treated my friend and I like crap & made us move from our seats bc the girls he was with wanted to sit down. Told us he was the owner & we had to get off the stage bc we weren't singing, which we were up next. When he told us to get off the stage, the girls started yelling at us and then one actually pushed my friend off the stage. When the bouncer came, he told the girl that shoved my friend to leave & Eddie told him to kick us out. So we got thrown out of the bar & we were completely sober. The employees even apologized to us. What kind of GM treats his customers like that and pretends to be the owner?!

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: “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: “Nashville Nightlife Theater

Well I really don't know what to say but honestly bad experiecnce and not worth the price at all. There is a reason they bus people in, not something I would recommend in fact just the opposite.

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: “Red Door Saloon

This is one of those bars in 5 points that fills up solely on location alone. If you are a local who knows one of the bartenders good for you and the convenience of such. If not, avoid this bar at all costs. Lots of fun until you cash out, and find your tab padded. Good luck trying to disseminate what you actually owe because there is not one person there who cares anything about you when it comes to money and your tab. Pay up or suffer, and these folks will intimidate when they need to. Highly suggest avoiding. The whorish looking dark haired female bartender (not Tracy) will harass you for a better tip and pad your tab unless you call her on it. Good luck getting a positive outcome. I didn't have the cajones to punch her in the face but maybe you will. I write this in the intent to all who read reviews in the hope you steer clear until this bar (a franchise, sadly) man up and accept that they are in the customer service business and we, as consumers, have the power to persuade a company like this to acknowledge its consumer base's needs for fairness or watch it's consumer base boycott its moneygrubbing ways (it is a business that makes craploads off of you for grabbing a few drinks) and encourage the establishment to hire people with a little more integrity. The owner is interviewing via fuck!ng chicks. Steer clear. Way overpriced.

Re: “Beyond the Edge

i witnessed a bartender break into tears and begin berating customers. the reason being that his boss apparently berates the employees when they do something wrong. it's creepy.

Re: “Gilligan's

Worst bar in the Nashville area as far as I'm concerned. Outrageous cover and the staff is completely inconsiderate. I don't know where they got the security guard that walks around like he's an actual police officer. Watched him put a tazer to a guy's head who wasn't doing anything wrong at all. Can't smoke indoors and the outdoor smoking area looked like hell. The decor was horrible and the crowd sucked.

Re: “Darfons

The price is way to high for quality of their food selection. Which isn't that great anyway!

Re: “Greenland's Pub

New owner that took over after Tommy Greenfield passed away is not very good at keeping people happy. Management is terrible, drugs are rampant and entertainment that used to be the highlight has been replaced with the worst forms. It's difficult to imaging this place will survive it's current mismanagement. Maybe the next owners will turn it back around and salvage this quaint little pub.

Re: “Lonnie's Western Room

Lonnie's Western Room is the dingy gravesite for the hopes and dreams of rejected Nashville Star auditioners. From the moment you walk into this janitor's-closet-turned-karaoke-bar, you are assaulted with the coppery, blood soaked stench of aborted music careers and a purgatorial sound that can only be found here. And no, that sound you'll hear is NOT a screwdriver in a pencil sharpener combined with the anguished screams of Bobcat Goldthwait pulling rusted wrought-iron anal beads out of his ass (don't be discouraged... that was my first guess too). With the help of this experience, Lonnie's truly redefines the term "dive", as in "Jesus, I would rather DIVE off the high side of Percy Dam than listen to you sing another f*cking song."

The silver lining? The drinks are cheap, so don't be afraid to pound a few beers while you listen to the "cowboy noir" singing Jason Aldean songs so high that he sounds like Mike Tyson before puberty.

Re: “The Rusty Nail

The lint of Hermitage's butt-crack, The Rusty Nail offers all the biker trash and dried-up bar skanks of East Nashville a place to wet their disease-ridden beaks with a vast selection of sub-par beers, ranging from all of your favorite Mexican brands to chilled hobo urine. Avoid the food at all costs, as it tastes like a cat that was salted and beaten against a tree. The mixed drinks are reasonably priced, but that does little to distract you from being surrounded by people who spent their childhoods locked in the attic. The last time I visited this bar, a man dressed in drag walked in and started flirting with the drunkest men there. Nobody noticed. In closing, for those Friday nights when The Rusty Nail is your last resort, find yourself an expired jug of milk and some livestock to rape. After all, you deserve to wake up with your dignity intact.


Also, they have a volleyball court.

Re: “Muse

shitty shitty shitty. If you have to go to the bathroom, go to the porn store behind the muse, for it has a cleaner bathroom. Good shows but just a bad environment. Someone should clean every once in a while . . .

Re: “Chappy's

I cannot understand how this place is still open. My first experience was not very good at all. The food was "warm" at best and felt like most things had already been prepared beforehand and plated as it was ordered. It was not crowded at all.. There were maybe 1-2 other tables occupied. A few months go by and I told myself I would give it one more shot. Worse than the first time. Food was cold, way too expensive for what you get and almost empty again! it just doesn't taste good to me. I will not go back here ever again.
