On 5/6/2017 my wife and I attempted to dine in the hotel restaurant, The Athletic Club. The woman who showed us to our table was also our waitress and she said she was new. Her lack of enthusiasm was palpable. We ordered an appetizer of the fried deviled eggs, and she told us not to because they were "nasty." We... More

Our waitress was great, the food was very good. Our table had the Nashville hot, the Meatlovers pizza and Nacho's. No complaints from anyone at the table regarding food. The beer selection was very limited otherwise this would have been a 5 star rating.

This sports bar is where the Middle TN Ohio State Alumni club have game watch. Typically they pull in over 100 people so we eat here several Saturdays during the college football season. This is a great place to watch games as they have many TV's and sound boxes for each table. Restaurant Mgr and wait staff do a great... More

I just wanted something light, so I ordered the smoked chicken salad on a croissant. It came with a fruit cup and was perfectly fine. Nothing to complain about... or to write home about.

I stayed at the embassy suites, and on our last night we ate at their pub. Our food was very delicious, and the service was great. I ordered the hot chicken San, my 3 yr old ordered the pizza and my husband ordered a quesadilla. The pricing was average. The pecan pie was even amazing and it was homemade. I... More

We were here a year ago and ate at the Embassy Suites' in-house restaurant. It took over an hour to get food then, but the food was pretty good - even for obscene hotel prices. Freshly made by someone who gave a crap what came out of the kitchen. This time, however, we still had over an hour wait, but... More

I eat here every time I stay in the hotel. The food is good, a little pricey but what you would expect for a restaurant. The service is great. They are always attentive and eager to help you out. I have never had a bad experience.

I've been a member for a couple of years. The free weight are is too small. The assortment of machines is pretty good. The cardio equipment is ok, but it's hard to find a treadmill that is not sorely in need of maintenance or calibration. The cardio theater room is a joke. I almost never see anyone in there. The...

Television sets everywhere, all with sports. But the place is not a sports bar. The surroundings are nice, in the lobby of the hotel, and the service is both fast and friendly. I come on Saturdays when the bar hosts the Middle Tennessee Ohio State Alumni group football viewing party. There are always plenty of servers and the food is... More

Easy to sit back and meet others staying at the hotel while you watch sports together. My burger one night and BBQ pizza on another were good for me.
