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: “Chappy's

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: “Amerigo

Typical chain food. Nashville has much better to offer.

Re: “Rippy's Smokin' Bar & Grill

Not sure which BBQ place the other reviewer went to but it definitely wasn't rippy's... Service was horrible, I felt like I was imposing on the staff to ask for a refill on my flat soda. I had to drink soda because the beer they brought me was warm. Ribs were dried out and a big let down considering they boast to have the best in Nashville. I never write negative reviews but had to on this one. Open for other suggestions!

Re: “Paradise Park Trailer Resort

I ate at this place twice in one day, because my friends are nostalgic idiots who were totally into this place. The food was good, but its not worth waiting an hour for without any waitresses in a completely empty restaurant. You place your order at a counter, and then wait at your table, periodically guessing when to check back. So lame, I will go to a real restaurant that spends less time decorating, and a little more time getting the service right -the next time in nashville

Re: “Jonathan's Grille

Jonathans has always been one of my fave restaurants. Yesterday we went to the one in Bellevue and it had changed to AJ's. Was not as good, prices higher and no beer specials except $2 bottles after 10. Nachos for $8 was pitiful and you hardly even got any. Not impressed

Re: “Rumours Wine And Art Bar [Closed]

I went to rumors last night. I was very dissapointed with it. My friend said it was a great place for mussels. First I thought it was a very high priced restaurant for the amount of food that they give you. We ordered the cheese platter. This came with a few crackers and some slices of cheese and bread. The crackers and the bread were unimpressive and dry. The cheese was tasty. The mussels tasted good but were not out of this world. In all we had two glasses of wine, the cheese and crackers and two orders of mussels (all appetizers) and the bill was $73.00!! I will not go back there. The service was good.
