IF you enjoy blues...this is the place to go. We did not eat, we only had drinks. Great service. Music was fabulous! Small dance floor. This is a "can't miss" in Nashville.

Music best blues band I have ever seen - J Curly and The Deal - top notch talent. BBQ ribs, chicken and mac-n-cheese were heavenly.

Went here with some friends to enjoy drinks and some music....extremely happy we did! The atmosphere here is relaxed and friendly. The band performing was excellent and put their hearts into the music. If I'm ever back in Nashville, I will definitely go back here!

You're probably wondering why this is four stars with a headline like that - it's because the music was that good. Small family visited this restaurant on a busy Saturday night. Each adult had to pay a $10 cover (kids are free). When we finally...More

We got there early; maybe 5:30 pm on a Sunday and there was no cover charge. Might be different later and on a weekend.
