Daily from 11am
cold beer - hot music – This is a staple of my Nashville trips for years, one day I will get the courage and line dance the face off a tall lanky fellow who looks like his legs aren't attached at the hips. Anyway the food is great but its loud and thats why I go there. Not for hipsters. Enjoy the crowd and feed off of it... lose yourself lose you mind.
Great place for concerts...and not just country music! – Love this venue...saw The Bravery here a few years ago. It has great sound, layout, food & service. We were very pleased...and the concert rocked!
Great Food, Fun Atmosphere, nice service! – We went in around 9ish on a Saturday night for our anniversary. The band really was not anything remarkable, but the variety of the music they played was very good!! We did not eat much, but did get the appetizer sampler which was great!! Our server, Stella, was attentive, nice, and brought everything rather quickly considering the place was packed!! The drinks were a bit costly, did not look like the cool pictures, but were tasty!
For all people – I was a nice place. It had friendly people and ok food. I prefer something with a little more edge to it. Family friendly place.
Best Servers!!! – Victoria and Nira are the best servers there!
Warning about making reservations at the Wildhorse – We were planning a family reunion in Nashville and had one night to visit downtown. After reading good reviews about the Wildhorse Saloon, I called three or four weeks in advance to make a reservation for 11 people on Friday night, July 16th, at 5:45 pm. The woman on the phone at the Wildhorse told me reservations would not be needed at 5:45 pm on a Friday night because they had lots of tables. But I told her I'd prefer to make a reservation if possible since there were eleven of us coming. So the said okay and took my name down. Well... she told me she took my name down.
On Friday afternoon around 3 o'clock in the afternoon I called the Wildhorse, spoke with Madeline, and asked that our evening reservation be changed from 11 people to 12 people. Madeline told me that was fine and she would change it.
Imagine my surprise when we arrived at the Wildhorse a few hours later to be told that they had no record of our reservation and that several large groups had booked the Wildhorse, leaving only 20 tables for the general public. We were told our group would have to wait an hour and a half for one of the twenty available tables they had left for the evening that were not booked by the large groups.
I asked to speak with the manager, and Eddie came out to speak with us. Eddie asked me if we could come back another day...er.. no.. we were from out of town and could not do that... I asked him why Madeline had not told me a few hours earlier when I called that she did not see my name on the reservation list... but he did not have an answer for that.
I finally told him that I would be mentioning this story on the Internet, and then suddenly he said he'd check to see if perhaps he could find a table in a corner somewhere to seat us. He came back a short time later, apologized, and said he had no tables available.
So I suggest that if you make a reservation here, check it twice, and then check it again. And then hope for the best.
Don't go there if you are on a timed schedule – A group of my friends and I go to restaurants to eat lunch every Friday together. Since we all work downtown, we generally tend to eat somewhere in that area that way we can all eat, catch up with each other and be back to work within our lunch hour. Today, we all decided Wildhorse would be the restaurant of choice. We all got there, sat down and were greated by our waitress who promptly got our drinks and took our food orders. My friend Ashley and I decided to order fried pickles as an appetizer since we both have an affinity for unhealthy snacks. Thirty minutes later our drinks are empty and our food (including our appetizer) has not arrived and our waitress has seemingly disappeared. Bearing in mind that I used to be a server, I try to keep my cool and be understanding even though the growling in my stomach is driving me crazy. Forty minutes later, our waitress emerges from whatever dark abyss she has been hiding out from to give us refills. We still have yet to receive our appetizer, much less our food. At this point, I am started to get annoyed. Not only do I have to go back to work in twenty minutes, I will be doing that on an empty stomach apparently. Even if by some freak accident (a stove not working in the kitchen, etc.,) the food happens to take forty minutes to cook, surely the fried pickles would not take that long. We asked to see a manager and explained to him that we only get an hour to eat and get back to work, he said he would go check on our food and come back. He never came back. Instead our server comes back to our table and says (direct quote I might add), "That's my bad, yo. It's gonna be a few more minutes." At this point we had already been there fifty minutes and the only thing we had gotten that we had ordered was sweet tea, and even at that we had to wait a good forty minutes before we got a refill. After informing the waitress that we all only had an hour to eat and get back to work, she said, "Well ya'll are free to do what you want. Again, it was my bad". Needless to say, I left and grabbed some Sbarros on my way back to work. Her saying "my bad" wasn't going to give me food and put me back at work within the time alloted for me for lunch. I would have talked to the manager again, but he was nowhere to be found, but I imagine he was trying to fix someone else's bad. I understand when it gets warmer out there are more tourists and kids are out of school, but why on earth would you subject your local customers to such awful service and not even offer them some sort of compensation? I wasn't looking for a gift certificate or anything like that, something as little as a sincere apology from the manager would have been a heck of a lot better than a "my bad" and would have been enough to make me want to come back to eat there.
Terrible Experience – I am 25 and the very rude bouncer inspected and questioned my ID for 5 minutes. I could not get a waiter or bartenders attention for over 30 minutes. The food and drinks are way overpriced and nothing special. They dont act like they want your business so dont give it to them! Other than some big country stars coming to this venue it has literally nothing to offer.
Big place, bad service – Went for the 100 Monkeys concert Nov 8. There was a long line outside and if I didn't have a VIP ticket I would have been pissed to stand in that long line. Waited 10 minutes and no waitress. Saw her and couldn't wave her down. Resorted to Whistling Loudly to get her attention. Saw her one more time that night. Needed to see her way more than that.
Concert was awesome! Sounded great! So, entertainment wonderful, but the service was BAD
Food is ok, music is great, but don't try to talk – A group of friends wanted to go to this very popular club. While it was fun to watch and even participate in the line dancing, and to hear the band, don't entertain the thought that you will be able to eat and talk with other guests around you...the place is so loud, that you will hardly hear yourself shouting to the person across the table from you. The staff seem to be as attentive as they can be with such a huge crowd. I had the monte cristo and a couple drinks. Overall, an expensive evening for food that really doesn't cut it and service that does its best but ultimately fails due to the large number of clients. A fine place to visit, but I wouldn't want to return.
