A Restaurant Guide To Nashville


Nashville is a mecca for foodies, and it’s easy to see why. The city has an incredible array of restaurants, from fancy to casual and everything in between. Here are some of the best places to eat in Nashville that I’ve been to:

Mess Hall

If you’re looking for an upscale dining experience, Mess Hall is the place to go. Located in the heart of Germantown, this restaurant serves modern American cuisine with a Southern twist. Their menu includes a variety of options such as their signature burgers and salads—but they also have more traditional dishes like filet mignon and chicken breast that will surely make any foodie happy.

The décor at Mess Hall is sleek but comfortable: black walls with dark wood accents give it an elegant feel while providing plenty of light during dinner hours. The atmosphere here is perfect for meeting friends or grabbing drinks after work—you can even bring your dog if you want!

Oak Steakhouse & Grill

Oak Steakhouse & Grill

Location: 517 Church St, Nashville, TN 37203

Menu: The menu at Oak Steakhouse & Grill features classic American fare like filet mignon and chicken breast. You can also order steaks, chops and burgers made from local beef. Prices vary based on the cut of meat you choose; steaks range from $25-$34 per serving while burgers cost $7-$11 each.

Hours of operation: Open daily for lunch service (11 am – 2 pm) or dinner service (5 pm – 10 pm).

Other details: Located in the heart of downtown Nashville’s entertainment district, this restaurant is just steps away from Bridgestone Arena where many concerts take place during the year!

The Porter House

The Porter House is a steakhouse, and it’s one of the best in Nashville. In addition to being located in the historic Gulch neighborhood (a former industrial area that became popular with hipsters), it has a great atmosphere and great service. If you’re looking for something special, this place will definitely do it for you!

The wine selection here is also outstanding—we recommend trying one of their flights if they have them available at the bar or table seating area. You’ll be able to sample several different types of wines without breaking your budget!

Nolensville Cafe

Nolensville Cafe is located at 635 Hermitage Road, Nashville, TN 37216.

The restaurant serves breakfast and lunch Monday through Saturday from 7:30 am to 2 pm. They also offer dinner every night except Tuesday until 8 pm. The cafe’s menu has a variety of options including salads and sandwiches as well as soups and desserts such as cheesecake or brownies with ice cream on top!

Nolensville Cafe offers free wifi so you can stay connected during your meal date. You can find out more information about this restaurant by visiting their website here: https://www.nolensvillecafeandloungecoffeehouseincorporatedcouk/home/.

Kallio Halal Meats & Catering

Kallio Halal Meats & Catering is located in downtown Nashville, at the corner of 5th Ave and Broadway. The menu features many different types of meat dishes like lamb, chicken and beef—and there’s even vegetarian options for those who don’t want to eat animal products (although we wouldn’t recommend it). Prices are reasonable at $12-$17 per person for appetizers or entrees.

Hours: Monday through Saturday 11 am – 9 pm (closed on Sunday)

Parking: There is metered parking available on Broadway between 5th Avenue and 6th Avenue along both sides of the street; however if you do not have access to metered parking then there are several public lots near by that will allow you park until 6pm without paying additional fees such as this one located right next door!

Four on Broadway Pizza and Sushi

Four on Broadway Pizza and Sushi is located in the heart of downtown Nashville, which means it’s an easy walk from both The Parthenon and Bridgestone Arena. It’s a family-friendly place that offers a wide variety of cuisine.

The prices are definitely reasonable: $6-$11 for appetizers, salads, and entrees; $10-$19 for sushi rolls; $12-$25 for pizza slices (available with one topping or all four). And the food quality is good enough to make up for the lower prices—you can have a great meal here without breaking your budget!

I highly recommend this place if you’re looking for something quick but tasty after work or school: I’ve been going here regularly since moving back down south because their service is always friendly (even when busy), orders come out quickly enough so that everyone gets what they want before leaving again…

Melt Shop Burger Bar and Beer Garden

Melt Shop Burger Bar and Beer Garden is located in a mixed-use building that houses several restaurants, including Melt Shop Burger Bar. This location has a large patio area with plenty of seating as well as a bar area inside the restaurant itself. The menu at Melt Shop Burger Bar offers burgers, sandwiches, salads and more along with some classic American dishes like steak fries or nachos. If you’re looking for something more traditional but still creative then try their signature burger called “The Works” which includes two eggs on top of your choice of meat (beef patty or pulled pork).

Melt Shop Burger Bar also features live music at many times throughout each day so if you’re looking for something fun then this might just be your spot! Reservations are recommended but not required; however parking can be limited so make sure to check before heading out here! To find out more information about this location click here: 

AAA Southern Kitchen + Bar

AAA Southern Kitchen + Bar

Located in the heart of downtown Nashville, this restaurant specializes in Southern cuisine with a wide range of options to choose from. The menu features everything from salads to sandwiches and entrees, but if you’re looking for something more filling—or even just something different than what they offer on their regular menu—you can order one of their specialty dishes like the fried chicken or fried okra. The restaurant also serves up some delicious brunch items including pancakes and waffles!

AAA Southern Kitchen + Bar is open Monday through Friday from 11:30am–2pm (lunch) and 5pm–7:30pm (dinner). It’s closed on weekends unless otherwise noted on their website or social media accounts

Republic Nashville Hotel & Casino – Vanderbilt Tower Buffet

Republic Nashville Hotel & Casino – Vanderbilt Tower Buffet

Located in the heart of downtown Nashville, this buffet is a great place to start your day. It’s spread over three floors with different themes and dishes that change often. The breakfast area features eggs Benedict, biscuits with sausage gravy and hash browns; while lunchtime brings options like calzones (pocket-sized pizzas) or chicken breast waffle sandwich on an English muffin. Dinner is where you’ll find the best selection: ribeye steak tips topped with blue cheese sauce or salmon salad made fresh daily from scratch; for dessert there’s fruit salad or tiramisu cake—or both! You can have as many dishes as you like off their menu for $12 per person per item—just bring cash since most items cost over $10 each!

Here are a few restaurants in Nashville that are worth checking out.

  • Bistro du Monde

This French bistro serves up classic dishes with a modern twist, including gnocchi with braised short ribs and tomato sauce, or the steak frites with red wine jus and truffle aioli for $25. They also have an extensive wine list and offer dinner service until midnight on weekends (with live jazz music!).

  • Spicy Pickled Mustard at Burgers & Brews

You’ll find this mustard-based condiment at Burgers & Brews, where it’s used to add spice to sandwiches like the Reuben Burger ($12). The restaurant offers free samples of their pickled mustard during lunchtime on weekdays if you order any burger combo meal; otherwise, it costs just $3 for one ounce!


So, that’s my list. As you can see, there are a lot of great restaurants in Nashville, but they all have one thing in common—they’re delicious! Don’t let these places pass you by and visit them soon.
