Re: “The Station Inn

We went in to see some great country music but instead former SNL performer and now local fat disgusting rightwing nutjob Victoria Jackson was hoisted on us.

She sang an unbelievably offensive 'song' about the President being a communist, along with every other usual slur including the birther nonsense. I don't know what was more offensive, her lunacy, the band bringing her up there, or the audience laughing at it.

When I said something to the sound guy, he said "If you don't like it, there's the door."

DO NOT support this ridiculous venue with your money. There are many great music in venues in Nashville that will not hoist this disgusting nonsense on you.

Re: “Chad's Winter Wonderland Christmas Drive-Thru

The thing that I did not like is you get in and it is advertising after advertising. For 15 bucks a car and more than an hour wait....the last thing I want to see are miniature billboards advertising businesses. You would think they made enough not to do that.

Re: “Rippy's Smokin' Bar & Grill

I found several choices for a pulled pork sandwich walking the streets of Nashville. Same for live entertainment. I selected Rippy's because of the music coming from 3 guys playing acoustic guitar that was drifting from the inviting open front. There was a female signing on the rooftop too, but I never made it upstairs. Food A+, service was quick, friendly, music was good, and everyone was accommodating. Perfect choice for that beautiful Sunday afternoon.

Re: “Fieldhouse Bar & Grill

My wife and I ate here on a Wednesday shortly after they opened. We were excited to try the food after being given a recommendation by a friend about the food and beer specials. The menu had some great options all centered around bacon. The servers were friendly. We were enjoying it so much we got 3 of our friends to come join us.

My wife and I have been looking for a place to do weekly trivia and after being told that The Field House would have trivia every Tuesday we were excited to make that our regular place.

Then our check came. Upon looking at the Facebook page of The Field House, it says that their happy hour included 2-for-1 drafts. Upon arriving at the restaurant, there is a sign that states 2-for-1 drafts. Upon being welcomed by our server, we are again told the special is 2-for-1 drafts. No restrictions are mentioned. I proceeded to order craft beers expecting that they would be included in the deal.

When we received our check my beers were all full price, which is when I was told by my server that the deal only included domestic drafts. My server agreed that this was confusing and got the manager to handle the situation. This is where things went from bad to worse.

The manager, Ash, approached our table and proceeded to explain to me that “it was 2-for-1 drafts, but they did not say which drafts.” He made this statement with an incredible amount of smugness as if he had tricked me into getting full price beers. As if his misleading advertisement worked and he was happy about it. Ash made no offers to make corrections to the check, because apparently it was my fault for not asking to clarify the specials they advertised.

To be clear, I was not that upset with the confusion and had the check been cleared up this one time I would have loved to come back and get domestic drafts. But because Ash chose to treat me the way he did and for choosing to not take the $8 off my check I will refuse to go back here. I will not support a business that benefits him.

Re: “Ms. Kellis Karaoke Bar

I'm writing this review as a current employee and former regular. Never in my life have I experienced a bar quite like Ms. Kelli's. It has it's hi's and lows, but most of all it's an amazing and fantastical place. Between the amazing patrons who come through, whether it be to sing or just to hang out, and the amazing family of staff there, I can honestly say I have found my home. We have a good time, and that's the bottom line. I won't address any negative experiences because , well it's karaoke, there's always going to be something lol, but I will say this, I would recommend this bar over any other to everyone I know. Trust me, I already have.

Re: “The Cave

I attended all 4 events at The Cave this past week and am VERY enthused about this series and the venue. Jim Williamson and The Cave are an awesome combination. Keep the music flowing! Donna Venardi

Re: “Rippy's Smokin' Bar & Grill

Downtown Nashville is an awesome place for live music, but surprisingly there aren't just too many barbecue joints to pick from. Jack's has a prominent place on Broadway (Nashville's main drag), and although their 'que is delicious, the line usually stretches halfway to the Cumberland River. I found Rippy's across the street and hoped it would be good, too. Fingers crossed.

Not to be outdone, Rippy's had live music going tonight. The old 90s country was actually really good. Nashville is the kind of city where it's not at all unusual to see folks two-stepping in the middle of a restaurant. All in all, this place had a really pleasant atmosphere.

I ordered a Half Portion Dinner (6 bones) of Rippy's Signature Ribs. The ribs come with two sides, so I picked potato salad and onion rings. The menu didn't specify whether the ribs were wet or dry, but I hoped for the latter.

The potato salad was nice and creamy. It had a great flavor, and I thoroughly enjoyed the crunch from the pickles, etc. I also liked that the mustard base wasn't overpowering. The onion rings looked fresh rather than frozen. They had a great batter and were fried nice and golden. This was an excellent pick for a side dish.

Much to my delight, the ribs came with a dry rub. I was able to cut them apart with minimal effort, suggesting that they were slightly overdone. They had a great smoke level, which matched perfectly with the evident smoke ring. My main issue with the ribs was the inconsistency. The first bite was fairly spicy, coupled with just a touch of sweetness. It was also decently tender. Other bites were more bland and weren't spicy at all, and the meat nearest the center was a bit dry. I was surprised to find so many differences in only seven inches of meat.

Rippy's wasn't the best barbecue I've ever had, but it was certainly passable. I'd go back for the drinks and music, although I'd likely order a burger instead.

Re: “Pizza Perfect

Best Pizza anywhere in town. Love the pizza... the calzones, ravioli, and great customer service... make you feel like family.

Re: “360 Burger

Their burgers are delicious and fries are great, but the customer service sucks. Waiters and waitresses are too busy engrossed in personal conversation, hanging out, to check on customers. They're bringing this place down. It could have longevity if not for the wait staff.

Re: “Bobby's Idle hour

Best bar in Nashville! The locals at this bar are the friendliest and funniest group I've met. Felt like I was walking into a friend's living room rather than into a bar I've never been in before. Love the vibe, the people and the music!

Re: “Soulshine Pizza Factory

Hard to beat Soulshine overall. Food is pretty good and prices are too. Music almost every night and no cover charge. Good selection of beer and huge 2nd story outdoor patio. One of my faves and you never know who you might see jammin' in there (from celebrities to up and coming new blues rock artists). One of the best spots in Midtown for sure.
