Poor, ungrammatical writing ruins the whole thing!

Re: “The Arts Company

I find Charles Keiger's work pedestrian and derivative. It is based in subjective and laughable surrealism, all stolen from the greats and reduced here for consumption for those he thinks do not know his influences. A sad example of modern "surrealistic" art - (f)art for the simpleminded who "love pretty horsies." Honestly, get some Grant Wood and do yourself a favor.

Re: “Commodore Grille

I don't know about the music -- but the food is mediocre at best and the drinks -- $10 for a glass of watery, tasteless sangria, really?

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.

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: “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: “Nashville Dinner Theatre

What HORRIBLE experience & what TERRIBLE customer service. First of all, my wife & I live outside of town but I heard their Christmas show - A Scattered Smothered & Covered Christmas starring Joyce DeWitt - advertised on the radio & thought that it might make a perfect surprise Christmas present for my wife in that we could to drive into Nashville, eat at & watch the show over at the dinner theatre on Printers Alley in downtown Nashville, then spend the night in town after the show as we would be getting back very late otherwise. I found a good deal through Groupon and thus purchased my tickets in good faith that they would be honored. None of the tickets that Groupon were selling were for a specific show & they stated that reservations must be made through the theatre. No big deal there so I made reservations for the first available show - which also happened to be be the only show - we we could make. I made the reservation almost 3 weeks in advance and then made accommodations in to stay in Nashville a few days later. Anyway, I received an email just 2 days before the show to ask for "volunteers" to give up their tickets b/c they had somehow "magically" overbooked the show. Since I had reservations to stay overnight in town & this was the only show we could make, I responded letting them know this & that we could not be give up our reservation. However, the very day of the show - just hours before the start of the show really - the people I emailed previously disregarded everything I said & went ahead & canceled my reservations anyway. This was all done without without warning me or even without a telephone call to let me know in person that I was getting bumped. To top it off, all I received notifying me was a generic email stating that they had canceled our reservation & there was nothing I could do. No apology, no no warning, zip! After several unanswered calls to the box office & several more to another contact listed in my surprise email, I was finally able to get a hold of the world's least customer friendly representative who answered the phone & just didn't care. He even told me bold faced lies by trying to push blame on to Groupon for the overbooking even though Groupon sold a dateless ticket & the required reservations were made through their theatre. I could understand if Groupon were at fault & oversold the show but how could they even do that with a dateless general ticket? If it's one thing I can't stand it's being treated like crap & then having someone try to cover it up by lying about it & trying to blame someone else. What a HORRIBLE experience & what a terrible business. I hope they do nothing but fail from here on out & with this kind of service I have no doubt that they will. If you are wise you will avoid this place at all costs so you don't have to go through the same ordeal. BOOOOO!!!!

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 [CLOSED]

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.

Re: “Ryman Auditorium

Sorry but there was nothing worth braving the cold night air dragged, crackled and popped but the jam Jonas hoped would erupt from Prince's old band never happened. I found myself waiting in pretense for a release, a crescendo in a song that never came. Just mindless monotony of endless measures that would finally come to an unexpected end. Unexpected because I'd zoned out long after he'd hit the second chorus of (insert any song) a song. Then he did a Stevie Wonder song, perfect for jamming, only to have Jonas' guitar turned up so loud you couldn't hear the lead guitarist jam and he was really jamming! That's just BAD FORM.
