My guide was a professional musician. He said- if you play guitar, go to Robert's WW. The standard was way beyond good- it was the best I've ever heard live (and I've heard Jeff Beck, Clapton, BB King and Albert Lee live. Go there.

We stopped by on a Saturday afternoon to listen to the band and grab some bar food. The band that played from 12-3 played tight sets and the lead singer, Rebecca, really nailed the traditional country sound of Loretta and Dolly. The food was basic but hit the spot and $2.50 PBRs could not be beat. Brendan, our server, was... More

Homophobic owner announced that girl on girl dancing was allowed and encouraged, but not boy on boy Dave Tanner, a regular guitarist and vocalist there, has also written a homophobic song about Tootsie's, which he calls a gay bar. This is Southern discrimination at its best. Stay away and don't support. It's a shame because the music was amazing until... More

This place lives up to it's name if not the best Honky Tonk in nashville. The artists are nothing more than first class muscians. We had a fantastic time in this bar. Great beers and serves snack meals which looked good.

We heard about this bar constantly. It has good old fashioned country music where the locals love to hang out on Broadway. It was every bit that. Gayle our server at the bar was the sweetest ever! The music was fantastic and gave a real view of Nashville and their love for music.

We stopped by this bar by chance and it worked out really well. As with all bars on Broadway it was pretty well rammed with punters all out for a good time. The staff were brilliantly efficient including those who worked the floor bringing your beers etc. How they kept track I don't know. Anyway at the time we visited... More

We were told this is the best bar on Broadway for a proper old-fashioned honky tonk experience and I can't argue. Good staff, reasonable prices, drinks are fine and the music was as good as you'd expect. One of the few local bars where you can imagine the Opry stars of old dropping by after the show for a beer... More

One of the gems along Broadway - super decor & great music in the heart of honky-tonk row. We had also been to the Robert's Western World North over by the Willie Nelson Museum near the Opre too - also great with terrific music.

This bar was recommended to us by a friend. All bar staff were friendly. We ordered bottled beer with no problems. The only bummer was that the fries basket we ordered came out cold. To their credit, the place was absolutely packed. Great music though! The band was interactive with the audience

We really enjoyed the atmosphere and the music at Roberts Western World. Visited on my honeymoon and since my last name is Roberts now we thought it was the perfect place to go. Where else can you get a fried bologna sandwich like mom used to make ya.
