“Spicy Chicken”

Reviewed by Adam R

“The bartender told us to try the spicy chicken and we fell in love. I am coming back to Nashville from Chicago this fall mainly for the spicy chicken here. Everything else about this place was on point as well. So fun!!”

“Amazing museum and rooftop bar!”

Reviewed by ABrannon

Don’t miss this museum and restaurant/bar. The museum is loaded with memorabilia and history! Then, we went to the rooftop for a drink! Awesome view of the football staduim and the river! Great service. Recommend 100%.

“Great staff”

Reviewed by GordonPamAly

Visited during the CMA Fest in Nashville. Streets were crazy packed. However, we found a great location to spend during some of the hot weather. The rooftop bar was a fantastic place to listen to the live music coming from the riverfront stage located right across the street. Although this restaurant offers VIP seating which is located directly on the railing overlooking the live music (and sells out well ahead of time), we were still able to enjoy drinks and hear great music. A special acknowledgement to Tiny, the not-so-small bouncer/friendliest employee we encountered. By far, he will be one of the reasons we will visit this restaurant in the next couple of months.

“Didn’t go up to the museum because I never got further than the bar/restaurant/music”

Walked in, met a very nice bartender named Briana and we wound up spending most of our evenings there. We sat at the bar, had the best BBQ wings I have ever eaten (House Bourbon Sauce), drank some drinks and listened to wonderful music by the local talent. This is definitely going to be my go to place every time I go back to Nashville. Well done! Loved it.

“Favorite museum!”

Wow! Going into this museum I didn’t know much about George Jones but my boyfriend is a huge fan so we went to check it out. Loved that they encouraged you to purchase a drink at the bar to take with you while browsing the museum! Unlike others that are far more strict and won’t even let you carry a water bottle around. Great layout, not crowded at all, and so many fun facts, information, and cool things to see! I came out a fan! I prefer this museum over the Johnny Cash one. The Rooftop bar was a lot of fun after as well, and I heard the restaurant on the first floor had very good food; I would definitely like to return here!
