“It has been a while since we tried Jake's Place.. I was pleased at the offerings on the menu; fish had hushpuppies with it, slaw available, and of course, french fries were on the menu. I can't remember if there were white beans or not, and I like white beans or baked beans with my fish. The fish was really good with no "muddy" flavor, and the portion was plentiful. Their burger was good. It did seem a little higher priced than other similar food options. What will possibly prevent me from returning is the vibe that I got from the tin pan and basket on which the food was served. Also, the "hushpuppies" didn't seem to have any onions in them, and they were a "sweet" cornbread, which I have never had in hushpuppies before. If these two things were changed as well as the huge potholes in the back parking lot, I would be excited about Jakes' Place as another meat and 3 option.“

Butcher and Bee is now my "you have to go here" recommendation to anyone coming to Nashville. And order the Chef's Choice. We are still a bit in awe of the culinary splendor we received. Thank you!“

“Local joes is one of the last good meat and threes in MJ. I'm not from Tennessee originally but when I moved here the idea of a cafeteria being available in many different places was amazing (I may have gained 20 lbs my first few years cuz I can't say no to a meat and some sides!)! After the closure of Courtney's, Local Joes has been a good replacement. They have fun family events like balloon animals sometimes and even when it's busy they deal with it pretty well. It's somewhere I would be proud to take my family if they ever decided to come to Tennessee to visit! I'm giving 4/5 because their food consistency is not always 100. In my photo my food was lukewarm and kinda just OK, but I've definitely gone before and it's been some of the best food I've ever had. They also go around giving cookies sometimes and that home style touch is what MJ is all about!“

“Spent a week at the Gaylord hotel on a trip, the one and only Jack Daniel’s bar became my go to very quickly. I appreciate the rough around the edges atmosphere and wood accents of the restaurant. The food is great and portions are good too. Little on the high side of pricing but it’s a hotel bar so just prepare for that. Wayne, Laura, and Angela are all very friendly and hard working staff who go out of their way to make sure you’re satisfied and serviced well. It didn’t take long to feel like a regular and always looked forward to hanging out with staff. I can recommend jack Daniel’s bar if you’re staying the Gaylord!“

“Our dinner was excellent. I would have gotten a picture, but we ate like someone was going to snatch it from us. Our waitress was friendly and their manager walked around and asked everyone how their dinner was. It's been awhile since I've been to a restaurant that has done that. Very nice experience all around. We'll definitely be going back. I took one star off simply because it was so loud, not the music but the voices seemed to just vibrate around you. Don't think anything could be done about that.“
