Food is decidedly not the reason to go to 3rd and Lindsley. Music is! The wait staff are wonderful. The drinks are reasonably priced; food is fairly typical bar fare. As a music venue, it is an absolute must!

This is a fantastic way to watch a band. This extremely popular venue is spacious and is a place where you can sit down and have a meal while watching the act on stage. The food is good, service reasonable and most tables have a good view of the large stage area. I have now been twice and I should... More

Excellent show - Trace Adkins and Runaway June. Sat in balcony and had perfect view, with no one sitting or standing in front of us. Acoustics good. Food OK but not great. Sold out show so got there early. Took cab, about $10 from downtown.

We purchased tickets for a concert that began at 8 p.m. The doors open at 6 p.m. for seating. We arrived around 6:30 and found one of the last free tables and were disappointed to find there was no music or entertainment at all until the concert. The food and service were average. We are used to all the great... More

We traveled from Rochester, NY to attend the Nashville 'Reunion Concert' of a long-time, Nashville, national, very talented musician, performer and friend, who selected this perfect venue. We arrived early to pick our seats and order a lite dinner before 'showtime'. It quickly filled to standing room only, but the well-staffed, efficient servers, though pressed to maneuver through the crowd,... More

Mediocre food, cold beer, great service and music to die for. Time Jumpers play Texas Swing, older style country western I recall as a kid with Gene Autry and similar artists. When have you seen a band with 3 fiddles. 10 musicians in total. Vince Gill's numbers were more like Clapton than hard core country. All were exceptionally talented musicians.... More

Music was great. Food was okay, more like typical bar food BUT service was spot on fast and courteous. Bartenders did a fantastic job getting drinks out quickly. My only complaint would be the fact that they let folks stand right in front of those already seated for a show. Keep in mind, those in seats probably arrived hours earlier... More

We saw Vince Gill with the Time Jumpers and it was amazing. It's a wonderfully, intimate, venue to see live music. Get tickets online or risk missing out.
