If you are getting to know Tennessee or making your 1st trip there then make Nashville your home base. In Nashville be sure to have dinner at Jimmy Kelly's. Ask to be seated in a section served by Guy, an outstanding waiter. The location is a comfortable, multi-level converted Southern mansion in the city. The prices are very reasonable and your selections will be personally finished by your server. Like tomatoes as an appetizer? Try "Buster's Tomato Salad" (from their menu it is described as follows: "this salad is so delicious and simple. sliced sweet onions, maytag bleu cheese and spicy italian vinaigrette". These were the sweetest onion slices I have ever tasted. Excellent wine list with many choices for every budget. I recommend this Pinot Noir #27. Bella Glos Meomi 11, California. Top of the line cuts of beef prepared precisely the way you request. Ask for Guy and enjoy a special evening. Thank You to our server, Guy, and the staff at Jimmy Kelly's. One of the places that makes Nashville great!
First trip to Nashville and at Jimmy Kelly's. Lovely Victorian house with different rooms so noise is limited. Great atmosphere and wait staff very friendly. I thought the menu was a bit limited. The crab cake appitizer was amazing and they give you corn cakes (little pancakes) instead of bread. I thought the filet mignon was good, comparable to other steak places.
My husband and I were there right before Christmas and both of us fell completely in love with the staff, food and the ambiance was nothing short of amazing. We will definitely be back. Matter of fact we will be there tomorrow night for dinner & dessert. What a beautiful, elegant and dare I say, sexy atmosphere. Such a treat to get away from the franchise restaurants.
When in Nashville, I always love the friendly staff, drinks, food, and owner Mike Kelly! The martinis and food are always served with style and tradition. I eat in many 'steak states' including Oklahoma, but Kelly's is amoung the BEST in the country.
Service is outstanding! Most waiters are 20 or more year veterans who anticipate your needs and meet them quietly. Food is pricey but outstanding . Have dined there numerous times and have never been disappointed!
Jimmy Kelly's is located in an old house so it has all those quaint charms you would expect. Unlike the upscale steak chains (Mortons, Ruth Chris) the filet we had was not smothered in salts and seasonings that leave you looking for water for the next 24 hours. The natural flavor of the meat was allowed to speak for itself and it was a great cut of meat. We had reservations and were seated immediately. I think our waitress was fairly new and was certainly much younger than most of the wait staff. They offer a nice choice of wines and deserts,
Enjoyed a great southern styles steak dinner that was accompanied by friendly service and easy going ambiance The "burger" largest I have ever seen and a Tatar to match. We had no room for dessert Loved the mini pancake appetizers that arrive with drinks
I first discovered Jimmy Kelly's more than 20 years ago. Over the years, it has been the scene of many happy celebrations for me and my family. The service is without peer, and the steaks are the best anywhere around. Most of the wait staff have been at the restaurant for at least 5 years, and the flow of their service is seamless. Of course, Jimmy Kelly's is known for their steaks, but there are many other wonderful options to choose from as well. You will not be disappointed! Set in a the charming atmosphere of a turn-of-the-century home, it is as welcoming and comfortable as a favorite English pub. I would be happy to eat there every week if possible!
I love love love Jimmy Kellys. You have fun and the people there are always having a smile on their face. One of the highlights to my birthday was getting my pic with Arthur. HE IS THE BEST he laugh's and tells great stories. He has been a staple there for as long as I have been coming and this year I will be 47 that should tell you something... I would never go any where else but Jimmy Kellys for my Birthday...
Thank you so much for providing such a
great place to celebrate my Dad’s 80th! Everything was ideal – the food, your staff, the cake, and of course, Arthur. My Dad had a wonderful celebration and I think you for all you did to make it great!
P.S. Food was fabulous!
