Re: “417 Union

Average food and subpar service. If you're just looking to satisfy hunger this is the spot. If you want a great breakfast and fun experience, keep looking.

Also expect it to cost $60 for two people.

My friend didn't like her salad because the lettuce was brown. She also didn't like the coke. Another commented on the lettuce that came with his quesadilla, but he didn't eat it. He liked their ginger ale.

Would I go back? Probably not. It's very small, and we went to the restroom and found that they had two bottles of lotion in the tiny unisex bathroom, but no soap. We told our waiter, but they never did put any soap in the bathroom.

Re: “Urology Associates

Apr 2nd, 2015
What a horrible experience! My husband shows up at 8:00 am for his procedure at the surgery center (this is the 2nd attempt due to the first one being cancelled for weather). He signs all of the paperwork and then they ask for a $1500.00 co pay up front. We explain that we have a health fund and that we don't pay any out of pocket and that it would all be reimbursed per our insurance. They proceed to tell us they won't do the procedure without payment because that is their policy. Ummm-we had no problems at the office visit, and we told you over the phone when you called about the patient cost. We again explained that if we payed, our insurance company would not reimburse us because we are told not to pay put of pocket and that they could call to verify this info. They said it didn't matter what the insurance comp said, this was their policy . WHAT!? !? So 2 months after the initial consult, still no procedure! Bad business in my book. Go somewhere else that uses just a tad bit of common sense and knows the difference between a health fund and an HSA account

Re: “Carmike Hickory 8

They must have done some remodeling because I thought the theater was pretty decent when I went! Honestly most of the other local theaters aren't any better, and they'll charge you over $10 more to see the movie. Fandago and movietickets.com quoted me $16.75 for an adult evening ticket at "normal" theaters (Opry Mills, for example). um...what?!!! This is a much better buy! (honestly the best buy would just be to wait until comes on Netflix or get Amazon Prime...but if you're desperate to see something in theaters, this is the best buy you can get!)

Re: “Field House

The Whiskey Tasting was fun. I'd never been to this bar before this but I'd like to go to their next one. I think they do one every month.

Re: “Field House

The Pig on a Cow Burger blew me away! It was an 8oz BBQ burger loaded with pork...what?!?
The place is spacious with TV's everywhere. The staff is laid back and friendly. I like that it's non-smoking and has Golden Tee! I think this is my new Sports Bar.

Re: “Starlite Club

The manager lady did a great job with booking bands and keeping things running over the last couple of years. But it's a damn shame that the owners lost the vision, lost the goal, lost the interest to keep the place going.

There is a tremendous business opportunity in Nashville for a place like Starlight, where you can hang out and watch people or dance, have dinner, have a good time, raise a little hell, no pressure, no drama, no traffic, no parking hassles.

But no... they didn't care enough any more. A damn shame, and I hope that someone else with VISION comes along and takes up that opportunity.

Re: “12South Taproom

The Taproom has elements of the ideal beer bar, but the full package still eludes Nashville.

The good:

-Variegated selection, especially if you like West Coast beers
-Decent local representation

The bad:

-Imbalanced regional representation (Too much GA, not enough NC/VA)
-Overpriced and forgettable food. This tends to be a problem with beer bars because it's a good business model: get a couple beers down your patrons' gullets and their standards are lower, so you don't have to try as hard. Can't say I blame them.
-Overwhelming noise inside

What to fix:

-Make good use of the real ale rig and serve more cask beer
-Cut food prices 15% or step up your game
-Do something about the noise inside: Quieter music, acoustic panels, rugs, etc.

Some good other suggestions below

Re: “Commodore Lounge

Home base for a some of Nashville's biggest, best and/or newest songwriters. I like that six out of seven nights a week, established and newbie writers can also sign up to perform there after the scheduled sets. I've seen and heard a lot of great performances there! Also great food, free parking and no cover charge--cool deal!

Re: “Bobby's Idle hour

This is the home-boy (and girl), not-on-the-tourist-maps songwriter dive bar to end all dive bars. People don't come here to impress, they come for the original music (no cover tunes allowed) and fun...not unlike a Nashville version of Cheers, only it's right on Music Row. You never know what industry professional who may work or record nearby might wander in and even get on stage, day or night. This place has a history like no other in Nashville, even the Bluebird. Now that there's no smoking, it's even friendlier to a larger base of fans. Strongly recommended if you're into substance over glitter.

Re: “Puckett's Grocery

The wife and I had tickets to see Jason Aldean over at Bridgestone Arena, and an early pre-concert dinner seemed like a great idea. Puckett's was only a short walk from Bridgestone, and with several enticing barbecue options on their menu, how could I resist?

Puckett's has a really lively atmosphere, but I suppose that's par for the course in downtown Nashville. It has a much more relaxed feel than a lot of the other restaurants on Broadway though. Too bad we were a few hours too early for the live music, which occurs nightly at Puckett's. The music is part of what makes this place popular, so reservations are a must for dinner, even on a weekday.

We had skipped lunch in preparation for our 4:30pm dinner, so my stomach was already rumbling. An appetizer was definitely in order. We decided to try the Fried Pickles. Yum! The pickles were thinly sliced, making them more like chips. My wife thought they were a touch too salty, but it didn't bother me. Their fried pickles come served with some sort of chipotle-bacon ranch dressing. The ranch was an awesome compliment to the pickles, though the mild flavor left me wondering where all of the chipotle went.

I had originally planned on getting some of the dry-rubbed, cherry wood-smoked ribs, but at the last minute I decided they might be too messy. After all, I didn't want to spend the whole concert covered in rib juice. The menu says that the "Puckett's BBQ Platter" comes with your choice of pulled pork or chicken. Fortunately, our waiter told me that not only could I get beef brisket on the platter, I could also make it a two-meat combo. Done and done. I ordered a duo of brisket and pulled pork. The platter also comes with sweet potato fries, baked beans, and coleslaw, but I substituted potato salad for the slaw.

The fries tasted fresh and homemade. They had a great sweet flavor, which was even better when dipped in the leftover ranch from our fried pickles. Puckett's beans were somewhat spicy and only slightly sweet. The potato salad was full of big skin-on potatoes, giving it more of a German potato salad quality. It had a nice flavor from the pickles, and the low mayo content let the veggies shine.

I've been trying to acclimate myself to pulled pork ever since moving to Tennessee last summer. It's been a hard row to hoe. My affinity for beef aside, Puckett's pulled pork was nice and tender, with only a moderate amount of smoke. Although, I eventually found some nice pink pieces which had soaked up more smoke than others. The meat also had a nice seasoning blend mixed throughout.

Even though the brisket came out chopped, at least it was chopped into large pieces. And to be fair, I think they usually only serve brisket on sandwiches, so I can't really complain in light of my special menu request. The brisket had more smoke than the pork. It was also decently tender, especially the fattier bits. There was a commendable amount of flavor considering that the seasoned bark had all been trimmed away.

The dessert menu includes something called a Deep Fried Brownie Sundae. Apparently this dessert took home the blue ribbon at the Southern Fried Festival. As full as we were, there was no way we could resist such obvious deliciousness. When it came out, my first thought was "Holy crap it has bacon on top!!!" This thing was absolutely incredible. With its state fair-style crispiness, the deep-fried brownie was even better than I imagined it would be. The salty bacon was great with the chocolate, and I really liked the crunchy pecans, too. Not even a crumb was left by the time we were done.

I'm really glad we gave Puckett's a try, and I'll definitely be back.

Re: “Alkebu-Lan Images Bookstore

Vendor Warning - This customer does not pay for purchase orders from vendors, do not do business with them unless you want to get ripped off and never get paid for your merchandise. The management (Yusaf Harris) will repeatedly tell you they will take care of it next week and after five times, it becomes pretty obvious you will never be paid. **DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THIS ORGANIZATION**

Re: “The Great Escape (Charlotte)

Couldn’t agree more with the above comments. It's almost like they just watched High Fidelity and came into work thinking are cool as shit. Assholes - If you so DAMN cool that it’s a bother for you to HELP me BUY something from your store maybe you should re-think your life strategy. You are working in a record store at least have the decency to be civil and help someone out without be condescending and rude to a fellow music/ comic lover which is why I assume your working there in the first place. Retail is a customer service industry job last time I checked. NO one has time for your bullshit attitude - Id love to speak with whoever is in charge of you fuckers!

Re: “The Rusty Nail

The atmosphere is good. It is very well lit. It is not a dark dingy place. Fairly clean. Bartenders are nice and helpful. I went in by myself and its always awkward going somewhere for the first time especially by yourself. But met some nice people and had a great time. I love Karaoke. The set up was not the best but it wasn't bad. You have to sing on stage and you can barely hear yourself (no wireless mic and no monitor for the singer). Karaoke guy was great, very friendly ran it well. Bathroom were eh. Not the best, not the worst. Clean enough I didn't feel like I was going to catch anything. Beer was reasonable and even better during 2 for 1. Overall a very solid bar, good crowd, attentive and friendly staff, had a great time.
