    T. G. I. Friday's: T. G. I. Fridays at the Opry Mills Mall

    by butterflykizzez04 Updated Feb 3, 2014

    Oh my goodness...we went to TGI Friday's for lunch and I am always a fan...
    We sit in the bar area because we enjoy the seating and the feel of individual televisions. We were watching some Hockey..

    We opted to order our normal "Wings and Spinach Flatbread Pizza" with his usual Budweiser and my unsweetened tea with lemon and lime...but we saw the table top card showing off the New STACKED Cheeseburgers....so we changed our mind..

    We ordered the Philly Stacked Cheeseburger with fries..and the Spinach Flatbread Pizza...with our drink order...and OMG...that burger was so Delicious!!!!
    I am not much of a burger person, but when I do bite into one that is over the top...I have to mention it..

    This burger was so FREAKING good and I was realizing I wished I had ordered my own...lol!!! We always order and share...and I hated the idea that I had to give up the other half of my burger...I wanted to be selfish and EAT it all myself...
    Darn it!!
    Next time I definitely WILL !!!
    I highly recommend this Burger!!!
    It cost $11 and some change with fries...yes $11 almost $12 for a burger..but worth every penny and every BITE.....

    Awesome restaurant with Awesome food!! I have always loved TGI Friday's, but this one in the Opry Mills Mall is in a great location and a great size. It has plenty of room and lots of tables and televisions. What I liked the best was setting in the bar area. They have televisions on the outside and the inside of bar area..so that way if your setting on bar stool or at a booth in the bar area..you can see a television without any viewing issues.

    I like sitting at the booths in the bar area..when you sit there at your table and watch the television screen RIGHT IN FRONT of you ...it's like your setting on your couch at home watching the television and having a waiter cater to your every need.
    We enjoy the food at Friday's also. I like the Spinach Florentine Flatbread and the Pork Pot Stickers on the appetizer's menu!!!

    Tony and I went to the restaurant to enjoy food, drink and watching the Charlotte 49ers in the Atlantic 10 conference playoffs in Brooklyn NY..My nephew is there 6'4'' point guard ((Henry))
    so it was a great location!!! Our waitress was also the bartender, Julia..she was so helpful. She greeted us quickly I ordered my usual Unsweetened Tea with Lemon and Lime and Tony got his regular Budweiser in a bottle.

    We decided to get the Pick 2 for $10. I ordered the Pork Pot Stickers and Dragonfire Chicken and Tony ordered the Spinach Florentine Flatbread and Garlicky Grilled Shrimp. We shared the appetizers and I have to admit I enjoyed the Flatbread the most!!! It was much better than the potstickers but I liked them both a lot!!!

    They brought us our entrees quickly..I really enjoyed my Dragonfire Chicken..I tasted Tony's Shrimp (which was good) but I liked mine best. There was rice and broccoli included with my entree and I enjoyed it. I was full so I had to bring my leftovers home (which I turned into an awesome pizza later that night...just some FYI)

    We enjoyed our dinner and drinks. Watched the 49ers beat the smokies off the Richmond Spiders...it was a great afternoon!!!
    With our receipt we received a survey for a $8 off our next visit for a free appetizer!! Great job Friday's!!! We have 30 days to use it!!
    Our ticket for the meal entertainment and drinks was only $40 with taxes and tip!!

    The Cupcake Collection: Best Cupcakes!

    by TerriNesbitt Written May 30, 2013

    Home made from scratch cupcakes in so many flavors I can't name them. It's a quaint little business in a campus area, located in an old house. Their cupcakes are on $1.50 and each one is big enough to share between two, or even three who want a small serving. Among my favorites are the Lemonade and the Wedding Cake. But Red Velvet and Strawberry can't go without mention. If you are in Nashville, look them up!

    Favorite Dish: Lemon and Wedding Cake cupcakes

    Music City Flats Stoneoven and Bar: Music City Flats Stoneoven & Bar in the Gulch

    by TravellerMel Written Mar 26, 2013

    I first encountered Music City Flats when I went to a painting class around the corner. I arrived very early, and asked about a place where I could walk to get a drink before the class started. The instructor sent me to Music City Flats. I sat at the bar and ordered a Bogart, which was a wonderful cocktail that kinda tasted like iced tea. But sitting at the bar and soaking up the atmosphere, I knew I wanted to come back for dinner with my husband.

    A couple of weeks later, I got my chance - we came for a pre-theatre dinner. I love that the place feels both casual and upscale - not at all "fussy". We split an appetizer of Fire Roasted Goat Cheese, then we both ordered a flatbread - I had the Lobster BLT and my husband had the Italian Sausage & Pepperonata. Each was so large, that having had the appetizer, we probably could have split one. Too full to have dessert, but the couple at the table next to us had some kind of chocolate cake that looked scrumptious. Next time...

    Favorite Dish: My husband and I both agreed that the Fire Roasted Goat Cheese appetizer was our favorite thing - sticks of toasted garlic bread are served to dip into the creamy tomato basil soup with warm goat cheese melting on top - soooo yummy!

    It was perfect for a date night, but would also be a great place to meet up for a Girls Night Out dinner. On Wednesdays, they have a "Winesday" - for $20 you get a wine tasting and an all-you-can-eat buffet from 5-9pm.

    Bar-B-Cutie: Drive Thru BBQ? Yes Please!

    by TravellerMel Updated Mar 18, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Couldn't miss the adorable logo sign (cowgirl in daisy dukes), and was in the mood for BBQ, so I drove thru. So glad I did - it was wonderful! For under $10, I got a smoked pork platter - complete with bread and 2 sides. I got the cornbread (fried flat like a pancake), BBQ beans, and cornbread dressing. I love that they give you the sauce separately, but LOTS of it - I got three pots of the sauce and used 2.5 of them! The pork was juicy and tasty, and totally satisfied my craving. Next time, I will have to try the cole slaw...

    Favorite Dish: My favorite thing to order is the small pork sandwich combo, which comes with one side. I get the baked potato (loaded, without sour cream). Then I take the meat from the sandwich and dump it on top of the potato. Tons of mild sauce on top - OMG so yummy! And if you get this combo on Mon-Tues-Wed, it comes to under $5 INCLUDING TAX! You cannot beat that deal!

    Jack's Bar-B-Que: From Pit to Plate - Jack's Bar-B-Que

    by TravellerMel Updated Feb 20, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I was hungry and needed to eat before a performance at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center, so I started walking. Down the hill I picked up the distinctive smell of barbeque, so I followed my nose to Jack's.

    The place is rather unassuming, but the line inside made me think this might be something special - and I was right! The prices are very reasonable - a plate and 2 sides is less than $10. So a plate with 2 sides and a drink is around $13 - that's hard to beat!

    I love the pork shoulder, as I find the beef brisket to be oily (I am told that is how it is supposed to be, but I don't care for it). They also have chocolate chess pie (until they sell out) for $3 - definitely worth it as it is DELISH!

    Downstairs and upstairs dining; the patio out back overlooks the Ryman Auditorium. Perfect if you visit Nashville in the Fall/Winter when the Grand Ole Opry returns to the Ryman.

    Also - if you really like the sauces, they are available for purchase at the restaurant, and on their website.

    Favorite Dish: The pork shoulder was soooo juicy and tender. There are several sauces from which to choose - or mix and match! I was afraid of the "XXX-911", but the "mild" was sweet and yummy, and the "medium" was vinegar tangy. They also have a "Carolina" sauce and a white sauce.

    The National Underground: Hamburgers on Broadway

    by atufft Written May 19, 2012

    Closer to the riverfront than most Broadway Street restaurants, The National Underground is a hamburger and beer joint that has outdoor seating, and a bar inside. It has a music schedule although at the time I visited, the musician hadn't shown as scheduled. The atmosphere caters to the Nashville gay community. The burgers are good meat and sides, but nothing remarkable. Unfortunately, they don't serve ribs as do most places on Broadway. The service is good, and the beers on tap are worth the price. Coming here was mostly an expediency for me because I was tethered to my dog, and most the patio places wanted the puppy kept on the busy sidewalk side of the railing. Nashville hasn't caught on to the pet owner catering yet, although I wasn't the only person walking the dog downtown.

    City House: Best Restaurant in Nashville

    by EGitan Written Sep 12, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    City House is by far one of the top restaurants in Nashville for the value. With a contemporary, yet relaxed atmosphere, the chef offer unique options for various palates. Reviews peg it as an Italian restaurant, but I would beg to differ. The menu changes nightly, and offers yummy appetizers such as the Frico: Montasio Cheese, Potato (my favorite) house Cured Bresaola, Lemon Parsley Pesto, Pecorino
    Octopus, Bread Crumbs.

    Dinner varies between usually a pork dish, homemade pasta, or fish, all made with fresh ingredients that are in season. If you are undecided, go for the fresh wood fired pizza that is so fresh, and unique, you won't feel guilty for eating because it tastes divine.

    Save room for dessert. If they have the lemon poppy seed pound cake with fresh (daily made) gelato, order this. All desserts I have had are excellent.

    Favorite Dish: Appetizer: The Frico
    Dinner: The Margherita Pizza with fresh basil or Gnocchi with fresh vegetables pan fried.
    Dessert: Lemon poppy seed pound cake with fresh gelato.

    Make reservations!

    Batter'd and Fried Boston Seafood House: Al Fresco Dining in East End

    by TravellerMel Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Adorable casual restaurant - with one of the WORST names! - in Nashville's East End. We sat outside under the triangle tarps. The menu is eclectic - mostly seafood, but also sushi, pasta, and burgers. Wait staff was friendly, but not pushy. We really enjoyed the ambiance and the food - I expect I'll be returning.

    Favorite Dish: We each had the soup and house salad - I had the chicken chili, which was delicious, and the strawberry kiwi fruit vinaigrette dressing which was divine. My companion had the New England Clam Chowder, which was tasty, and the chipotle ranch dressing, which she enjoyed. We split a large order of fried scallops and fries, which was so large, I took some home for lunch tomorrow. All of that, plus two beers, came to about $43, plus tip. Not too bad, and the food was good!

    Aquarium: Great Atmosphere

    by ahouse2003 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This restaurant was amazing and is appropriate for all ages. There is a huge aquarium in the middle of the restaurant that is home to hundreds of saltwater fish including black-tipped sharks, stingrays, grouper and eels.

    Favorite Dish: I had the fried shrimp, which is my favorite seafood, but there were many great choices. There was also a kid's menu.

    Loveless Cafe: Go for the Biscuits!

    by mstinawu Written Nov 6, 2010

    Loveless Cafe is the epitome of what I would think a Southern diner should be. Great food and amazing to die for biscuits. "Best biscuits I've ever had." "Best country fried steak I've ever had." Unfortunately, no biscuit mix to take back with me--according to their little history blurb on the place mat, it's a closely guarded secret.

    Favorite Dish: I had the best country fried steak here. I'm a little sad that I decided to share our plates with the friend I went with, but it was just so delicious! I'm still dreaming about it now..

    Monell's: A Meat and Three for Thee

    by mstinawu Written Nov 6, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    For all you city slickers out there, a "meat and three" is a basic "food stuff" of the South. It's a meat (meatloaf, pot roast, fried chicken, etc.) and three "vegetables" where a vegetable apparently includes mac n cheese. I ordered a lackluster pot roast, but it came with three amazing sides (roasted potatoes, mac n cheese and corn pudding) and a biscuit. My favorite was definitely the corn pudding. My boyfriend ordered the fried chicken with the mac n cheese, coleslaw and green beans (I made him opt for the less awesome corn bread vs the biscuit). I'm not sure if it's an Asian thing, but my mother has always been a big proponent of taking a walk after big meals and we needed a walk after this meal, badly. We went off to nearby Radnor Lake and took a short hike. It was definitely needed after a meal like this! We wanted dessert, but our eyes were bigger than our stomachs.

    Favorite Dish: The cole slaw, the mac n cheese and corn pudding were my favorite items. I loved the corn pudding--not too sweet with the right amount of salty goodness too!

    South Street Restaurant: Decent Food Near Vanderbilt University

    by mstinawu Updated Nov 6, 2010

    South Street has a large selection of seafood (which I find strange on menus in a completely land locked state) and BBQ. It was late and I just wanted something in my stomach--something you can't really go wrong with. South Street looks like a typical bar and grill so I'm always weary to try anything that might seem a bit too adventurous or that I could possibly find better elsewhere at a place that specialized in it. I went safe and got a smoked turkey sandwich (which they smoke themselves on site) with hush puppies on the side. Definitely not a disappointment. The somewhat spicy mayo (or whatever it was) that came with the sandwich was a great dipper for those hush puppies. The hush puppies were pretty much mashed potatoes with bits of corn and other goodies, shaped into a ball and deep fried to a golden brown. Given it was my first meal in Nashville--I was super excited about how perfectly fried the hush puppies were. The smoked turkey had a good smokiness though it didn't blow my socks off--it still fared well with that spicy dipping sauce. All in all, I was content after a beer.

    The best thing about this place is probably that it's open late and has table service.

    Favorite Dish: Love those hush puppies and spicy dippin' sauce!

    Princes' Hot Chicken Shack: Hot Chicken Heaven..

    by mstinawu Updated Nov 6, 2010

    I venture to say that this is the best fried chicken I've ever had. In our short little Nashville trip alone, George ordered fried chicken from 3 different places. Two out of two little piggies agree--Princes' Hot Chicken is the best! Not only is it the best, it's also uh.. In a really shady area of town which of course, adds to the delicious flavor. Course, it might just be that the building is rundown and that the women behind the counter looked like she hadn't showered in a week--who knows.

    Ambiance is less than desirable, but does not change the fact that their fried chicken is HOT and DELICIOUS!

    Favorite Dish: Hot chicken of course!

    B & C: Beautiful Pulled Pork!

    by mstinawu Updated Nov 6, 2010

    At the far end of the Nashville's Farmer's Market is a food court--B & C (Bacon & Caviar) was there and it was on my "to eat" list during my stay in Nashville. Don't ask me why they've named themselves Bacon & Caviar--it has nothing to do with their cafeteria style down home BBQ. Even though I was already eagerly anticipating the Jack Daniel's BBQ World Championships we'd be going to tomorrow, I still opted for the pulled pork sandwich and a couple sides. I had my first sweet tea (of many) here--you really don't need soda when you have sweet tea! I had initially set my sights on this place via a chowhounder that mentioned the "unusual, but delicious sides." More than the entrees, I love Southern sides (corn bread, sweet biscuits, mac n cheese, greens, and all that good stuff). However, there was nothing usual or exciting about the sides they had on offer there. Maybe I was there on an uncreative food day--I'm not sure. I opted for deep fried okra poppers, and mac n cheese (with shells) as sides to my pulled pork sandwich. The big standout was the spicy BBQ sauce. I'm not sure what it is, but they know how to do a mean sauce here in the South. It went perfectly with the wonderfully tender and flavorful pulled pork.

    Favorite Dish: The pork was flavorful and tender. I loved itt!
