One of the Worst Restaurants that I have ever been to ....
Steak was mediocre at best. So overpriced. Sides were small (not enough to share) and luke warm. Martini was $14 and served in a glass that was chipped around half of the lip.
Basically, this is by far the worst nice steakhouse in this city. Mortons, Flemings, Ruths' Chris, Jimmy Kelly's, Sperry's, The Palm.
Even Outback Steakhouse might be better than this place.
Old Restaurant Meets Makeover. A few weeks ago my husband and I dined at the Stock-Yard. We are Nashville natives and had heard conflicting reviews about the restaurant in its present day state. We decided to make our own opinions and made a reservation for early evening. Upon arrival our server, a young woman, was very friendly. She asked us for a drink order and we said we needed to look at the wine list (they have one of the most extensive and amazing). After careful consideration we ordered a moderately priced Cabernet Sauvignon. Our server then briefly yet eloquently told us about the specials, prices included, and went to get our wine. For the meal my husband and I started with the escargot. It was very tender and had lot's of flavor and garlic. We then followed our servers suggestion and tried the Baby Mixed Salad. For our entree I ordered a 7oz. Filet with Oscar topping and my husband tried the special, a Kansas Strip with house seasoning. We decided to split two sides, a loaded potato and the cream of spinach. Overall the food was decent, but nothing to write home about. I believe the restaurant has good intentions, but their culinary staff is not up to par with their wait staff and wine list. With a new head chef and more innovative ideas ( more organic, vegetarian, heart healthy, lighter options) I think the Stock-Yard would truly live up to its top Steak House status. I recommend this restaurant if you have some money and want to enjoy a 5 course meal with excellent service and food that is on its way to becoming spectacular.
Great customer service and food. Wonderful in every way ! love ir. Great place for the best in steaks. I really enjoy the atmosphere. It is so Nashville ! My friends all love it.
Save Your Money. I was really looking forward to having a steak at one of the top 10 steakhouses in the country. Now I wish I had asked what criteria was used for this so-called top 10 list. The service was good, but the food and prices were both unacceptable. My husband had one of the specials, the ahi tuna. It was $40, as was the steak au poivre that I ordered. According to the menu, the steak came on a bed of creamed spinach. I would describe the amount as more of a cot than an actual bed. We each had two tiny martinis at $11 each. Having moved to Nashville from Chicago, we were accustomed to pricey dinners, but the food and the drinks did not measure up to the bill. My steak had WAY too much pepper on it, and as I said earlier, $40 is simply too much for one piece of meat and a garnish. From now on, I'll nurse my steak cravings by either selecting a much lower ranked (ha!) restaurant, or wait until I can go to Wildfire the next time I'm in Chicago. Their prices are not only more reasonable, but the menu selection is far superior, as is the quality of the food.
Captain Morgan and diet coke=$16.00. Need I say more? Ok I will. First time going 2-19-08. I have been living in Nashville for 1 1/2 years now. My first thought when I sat down was how terribly musty the place smelled, like mold. The chairs were very unsteady and rickity. I knew it would be expensive, but 16 bucks for a rum coke, 19 bucks for a Tangueray gin on the rocks with olives??? Am I missing something here? Menu is ala cart. $6 dollars for sides and anything extra you order on your steak will cost you. When the waiter tells you the specials they dont offer to tell you price or the size and weight, so be sure to ask or you may be very shocked when you get your check. Specials pretty much always mean a steep price. Although the service was good when we went, on a Tuesday, there were plently of tables and we were not rushed. I don't think we will return. The bill for 4 with 3 appitizers, 8 drinks, food and dessert was $524.00 BEFORE TIP!!!! It was all very good, but I can get good at Outback. Plenty of free parking in there own lot
Food is decent, atmosphere lacking, extremely overpriced. After 10 years of living in Nashville and hearing how wonderful Stock Yard was, I couldn't beleive I was finally getting to go. The service was good and that was about it. The atmosphere was nothing special, the food was good, but not great, yet the price was more than I have ever paid! Surf and Turf was a sirloin (not a filet) and about 5 bites of a lobster tail...all for $70?? Way over priced. I was with 3 other people who all described the food as "it was ok". Beleive it or not, I would much have preferred an Outback Steakhouse steak to what I got and the price would have been a fraction of what we paid. I can't even say I'm glad I finally at least went....because truth be told, I wish I had my money back in the bank. I won't be back.
Doesn't Justify The Price.
After hearing for years how great the Stockyard was, my wife and I were excited to finally try it. We made reservations for 6:30 and were seated immediately upon arrival at 6:20. The only problem was they two-top they put us at was directly in front of a doorway, under a TV next to the bar - not exactly the romantic setting we had in mind when we booked.
The waiter was attentive, but then forgot our appetizer. My wife's meal came out five minutes before mine, and mine was overcooked. The waiter then asked if we still wanted the appetizer we ordered. When I said we did, he took my plate (recognizing my rare steak was overcooked) to get a new steak, then took my wife's plate as well, even though she didn't ask him to and had a fork in her hand... ten minutes later, the manager arrived with two new plates and the now-cold appetizer. Meanwhile, the bar was filling up and we ate with pepole's backsides bumping our table as the overflow from the bar crowded our table. This made any sort of conversation impossible.
The bill came to close to $150... the prices are WAY too high for what we got. Ambiance was lacking and service was attentive, but not terribly detailed. Overall, I think a better meal for a better deal can be had just about ANYWHERE else in town. We won't be going back - the "status" of saying we ate at the Stockyard isn't enough to justify overspending for that type of treatment. The food was good, but not THAT good
Twice as good elsewhere at 1/2 the price. I was one of a group of 12. We attended New Year's Eve after the Music City Bowl. Granted it was busy but it should've been expected. The receptionists were very curt and unfriendly. We were seated in a room with 2 other large groups that was attended by one waiter and 2 assistants. The waiter was knowledgable of the menu, friendly and attentive all things considered. The assistants seemed put off with their stone faces and unfriendly manner. The alcoholic drinks are very pricey but very small for the price, ex. $11.00 for a small martini. Many in our group were satisfied but my strip steak was tough and grissely. By this time the service had gotten incredibly slow and I was unable to send it back. A 20% tip was automatically included in the tab which was more than I would've left for the service and I'm usually a generous tipper. All in all the $152.00 tab for two was not worth it. Outback would've been a better choice.
Wonderful. My husband and I married last year in Nashville (2nd marriage) and we had our dinner at the Stock -Yard. We thought it was absolutely wonderfull!! The staff was excellant, the deco was beautiful and our food was delicious!! We enjoyed every minute of it. It may have been alittle pricey but it was worth every penny! I can't wait to go back.
Warning: VERY DISAPPOINTING!. I must say that I was surprised! I recommend Stockyard as part of a concierge service with my place of employment. Finally, I took the opportunity to try it for myself. I am impressed with its decor, but extremely disappointed! My food was overcooked (so much so that it was tough and dry!). The waitor/waitresses were friendly but did not seem to personally know too much about the menu selections. I felt like they were just telling me anything because they worked there, which is fine, however I do prefer honest opinions. If the person has not sampled an entree, TELL ME. For the unbelievable prices of the entrees, the food was less than average. I could have simply gone to a regular chain because, honestly, I have had better tasting food from some of them. It was not even just my plate. I came with a party of four and the looks on their faces said a lot. They were not impressed either. One of my counterpart's steak was extremely tough. He chewed forever! Overall: We spent closed to $400 for a $50 value. Personally, I wanted my money back. They should have payed me! Needless to say, I will not be returning.... and neither will my recommendations for them. When I think back, all I can say is TSK TSK TSK... what a disappointment, Stockyard.
