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: “Cinco de Mayo

My husband and I come here on a very regular basis. We love it! The service is always nice and attentive, and never have we had an issue with a bug or a hair. I would absolutely recommend this place and other locations to friends and foes. As "Stephanie" put it. lol. I recommend you give it a try and if you find a hair (I find mine all over the place) give them a chance to make it right. Do yourself a favor and have a great time all the time here.

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.
