Okay so place looks like an absolute dump on the outside but step inside and be amazed. Gorgeous bar along with everything else. Service is top notch. Drinks are amazing but expensive. Food is amazing and unique, not even too over priced. Haven't stayed for the burlesque show but definitely plan on it at some point. Other than the wait you won't be disappointing at this place.
This dinner was amazing! It's been a month and we are still talking about the food and atmosphere. If your here to have deep long conversation it's not the best bet as the live music is loud. The cocktails were perfect. The vibe of this place is hip and very dark. Our table was lit by one candle. Can't wait to come back!
This place is Legit! Truly feels like a speakeasy. Jazz music, good food, even better drinks, an authentic, historical venue that has maintained its ambiance. Oh, and at 11PM, they have a tasteful burlesque show that is a lot of fun, and will transport you to another time.
OMG!!!! I am writing this review as I sit in Skulls rainbow room, stuffed to the gills! Food and atmosphere is nothing short of amazing. My wife and I are here on our 20 year anniversary and we could not have chosen a better place to celebrate. Very friendly staff and impeccable service. Thank you and we'll definitely visit again!!!
Hit the mark on every aspect of "fine dining". Incredible atmosphere, incredible service, the food was amazing. For the restaurant experience alone, it was worth visiting. I also attended the burlesque show, the I'll me that was western themed. No nudity beyond what a typical burlesque show has. Very classy, very entertaining and fun, and worth the stay. The entire experience was great down to the dancing, singing, and engaging the crowd.

If you are planning to go on a weekend you definitely need to make reservations. We watched people being turned away countless times because this place was booked for the whole night. The food is amazing. I had the MC burger, it was very juicy and filling. It's worth the $3 upcharge to get mac & cheese for your side dish. Chances are it will be going home with you because their burgers are BIG.
Our group of 30 reserved the upstairs for a team builder lunch and were so glad we did! The accommodations were perfect for our needs with a bar for drinks, side bar for appetizers, stage & mic for playing games, and plenty of seating. The staff was incredible from the manager to the bartenders and wait staff. And the food - Yummy! That mac&cheese with hot chicken is to die for! And the pizza..Mmm...Looking forward to hosting another event there or just going to eat with my family. I think the Stillery made some new friends!
Absolutely the best service and food imaginable! We had our 10 year old son and was passing through Nashville. We stopped and wanted to try it. Our waitress was amazing! Very friendly and on top of things. The manager guy was equal as awesome. We sat right by where they served the food to the servers and it was pretty awesome. Our pizza was a few minutes (like 5) after our burgers and they kept apologizing but we all shared food and it was totally fine. Deviled eggs were amazing, baked cheese with bread was amazing, Sonora (or something) burger was wonderful, hot chicken pie absolutely wonderful!!! I'd give more than 5 stars if I could!
The pizzas here are insanely great. Beet salad was delicious and the brussel sprouts appetizer was amazing. Drinks are great. The live entertainment was also great. I can't say anything negative about this place. Service is also fabulous.
First time here, and the next time I'm in Nashville, I'll be back. My wife and I had the Chop-Chop salad and the Hangar steak. The steak was requested medium-sized rare, and came out spot on. Melted in your mouth. The large salad portion could feed two people easily. All in all, definitely worth a stop in to try.

I enjoyed the atmosphere. The service was top notch. I especially enjoyed my server Christy, she was impeccable! My wife and I went there to celebrate our anniversary and they made it feel special. My only complaint is that the food is skimpy! I ordered the lamb and it was expensive about $40.00, but it was the size of two chicken nuggets! It was good but such a skimpy portion. Otherwise, it was a pleasant experience.
The food was fantastic, popping with flavors from appetizers to desserts. Everyone at our table raved about every dish, and every dish was passed around. My favorites were the scallops and olive oil almond cake. The staff (especially our server Mary) was as great as the food. Everyone greeted us coming and going. I couldn't recommend this place more.
Walked in on a late Saturday with a friend - and we were promptly seated at the bar. Good beginning and great service from start to finish. Food was absolutely delicious. Definitely our favorite restaurant during our time in Nashville. Highly recommend and will definitely be back!
We went in after hours and they were still open. Food was delicious. I ordered the vodka pasta it was delicious and cooked perfectly. Staff was extremely friendly. Will definitely visit again.
This review is a year overdue. Has anyone else ever gone to a restaurant so that they could have some more cauliflower (with truffle oil)? During a few days spent in Nashville last July, seeking good dining between business engagements, I and two serious "foodies" made a second trip to Etch just for that reason. We laughed at ourselves for that motive, but we went! And, reading other reviews, I recall and affirm that staff was extremely knowledgeable of ingredients and preparation, and patiently, amiably answered many questions.

We walked up and down Broadway on a Sunday afternoon and ended up only finding a few lively places with music. Though many places had performers, several we're way too loud or had no one inside at that time. Robert's Western World had a family atmosphere with people off more ages (no kids that I noticed, though.) The music was traditional honky tonk, which was exactly what we were looking for.
Small, intimate place. Small, but adequate dance floor. Live music was great here. They have really good burgers and fries. I will definitely be back.
A group of colleagues and I were here last Sunday night and had a great time. The band was great, everyone was dancing, and we all had a lot of fun. However, one thing that should be noted: The underside of the bar is completely littered with used chewing gum. There was a man sitting at the bar who was not part of our group and when I walked up to order, I noticed the bartender had just poured some kind of alcohol all over the man's hand (I kid you not). Later, we ended up talking and this was the solution the bartender came up with once he complained about having touched some gum "that was probably chewed by Elvis fifty years ago." He showed us a photo he took of the underside of the bar with his phone and it was like a psychedelic Yellow Brick Road under there. So, I guess, go to Robert's and have a great time, but be warned: do not touch under the bar! I'm giving this place overall five stars for the good times, but if I had less fun, it would be two stars for cleanliness (men's bathroom was actually really clean) and one star for... problem-solving.
The place is rather small and feels cramped and it's hard to order anything because of how loud it is, but it is totally worth it because the live music makes everything better! I ordered the cheeseburger from this place and it was pretty good. The staff all seemed pretty friendly. Overall, it was definitely a fun experience to have in Nashville!
Just...the...BEST on Broadway! My first time on Broadway St. Various bands each night and they were ALL OUTSTANDING! The music is the most true to the Nashville sound of country music. I visited most of the places along Broadway. The only place I made sure to go all of my 5 nights was Robert's Western World. It can get crowded but if you're in Nashville for the music you won't mind. 5/5 stars ~

Amazing food! The portions were perfect. Food was cooked to perfection if you enjoy Mexican food. I Loved it sooo much. Will definitely be back if I ever find myself in Nashville!
LOVE this place. The food isn't the most seasoned, but it still tastes amazing somehow. Whatever you do DON'T GO HERE FROM 12-1!! They're super busy and PACKED. The best times to go are in the morning 7-10 and afternoon 2ish-4. It gets crowded again at about 5-7.
This place was recommended to us by the concierge at our hotel just across the street--apparently it is a favorite of the locals. I am from the southwest so tacos are a huge staple in my diet and I must say, these were on par. The food was really tasty, I got the fish taco and chicken and they were both excellent. I only took off one star because our cashier, while polite to us, was very mouthy to her supervisor while standing at the front counter and made for a very awkward minute or two being that it is a confined space and could hear every word they were saying.
Great food and prices, it's always busy around lunch and dinner hours, there's no free parking around, but definitely worth coming back to every time
Yo they have amazing tacos! But super busy! @12-2 but they move quick with the staff they have but need more help
