I have been in this place many many times for business lunches and meetings. The service has always been good and the food has always been great. Certainly one of the popular spots in downtown Murfreesboro. Simple menu with a wide variety to satisfy most. I'm sure I'll be back :)

I'm sure I've dined at The Alley more than a dozen times and their consistency is amazing. For the third time tonight, I had their Nashville hot chicken .. it's a special but has been on the menu the last several times. I've had a lot of NHC and I believe theirs is the best. I think that starts with the chicken itself. Don't know where it's sourced but it's extremely juice, while the crust is incredibly crispy, even after sauced. The serving was enormous .. as was the broccoli. The salads

This place is a gem! Our server was so friendly and very knowledgeable about the menu. She answered all of our questions and gave us some great details about the history of the restaurant and how the food was sourced and prepared. All the food was delicious and perfectly cooked (the crispy brussel sprouts are a MUST). Cocktails were fabulous, too! It was such a great experience, we decided to come back the next day for some cocktails and appetizers at the bar. Equally great bar service. Very highly recommend!

Food was excellent - they cut their steaks there. Drinks were perfect and our waiter Seth was a really good sport. The best meal we have had so far on our trip to Nashville.

I was in town for a job and stopped by here to have lunch/dinner before my event. It had good ratings so I gave it a shot. This was a good decision.My server Hailey was so nice and suggested the meatball pasta dish, which was delicious.But the brussel sprouts were top 3 I’ve had in a restaurant. They were so tasty!They had a rich and flavorful stout which is always my do to on draft.I hope to come here again when I’m in town. I would highly recommend!

Our server was so delightful! He was charismatic and knowledgeable. I really want to give this place a higher rating because the food and service were good, but it was sooo cold inside. Maybe save this spot for warmer months because in January, it felt like an icebox. But, if you do go in the colder months, the Burks Gumbo & grilled cheese is delicious and warmed my body and heart Really great cocktails too, I don't remember which three we ordered but they were all refreshing and delicious.

A clean laid back place with all fresh ingredients, 100% made from scratch, and with a solid bourbon selection whats not to like. We are potentially using them for our wedding that's why we stopped in to try their regular menu. They have a wide selection on the menu and this place isn't over the top and it's decently priced. Staff was kind and service was on point. We had lunch there so idk what dinner looks like but im sure service is the same. Check this place out you won't be upset. Thans for yhe great lunch.

I went for the first time in December on a cold night. I got the Salmon Salad minus the goat cheese and crispy Brussels Sprouts and it was delicious. They are very quick and efficient too since I was with a large group that all ordered different items. The favorite was the Chicken Parmesan! It looked Amazing and was a huge portion! There were a few who got steaks. If I return I am getting the Chicken Parmesan! The only downside was that It was super crowded and really hot! I wore a sweater and was roasting! I only drank water for that reason too. They need to have a door cracked or something. The food is worth going for!

What a wonderful experience! The service was great and the food was fabulous. One can tell that a lot of love goes into preparation and presentation. My steak was seasoned perfectly and cooked exactly as ordered. The house made French fries were crispy, but not overdone... just the way I like them. Paired with a Malbec, it was very satisfying. I recommend the Jefferson bourbon drink and my wife loved the wild berry mojito.

Brilliant restaurant that this extremely critical food eater, and his family, utterly enjoyed. Fresh food daily made in this family owned restaurant with a rich history. Everything was fantastic. Best French fries in the city by leaps and bounds. Chicken Parmesan was superb and chicken was super moist. Picky daughter loved the noodles and called the homemade cookie the best she ever had. Wine was excellent and well, everything we had was spot on!If you are looking for a place to eat where any food choice would be the right choice, this is it.Only potential downside is you may need to prepare for a bit of a wait. This is due to a mix of popularity and a lack of awareness at times by the Hostess. But in the end, it’s worth the wait.
