Very good food with a quaint southern charm about it. Will definitely go back!
First, what's not to love about stepping back in time to dine? I loved the decorations and the old house.
If you ever go, request Arthur. He is a peach. He was so sweet, nice, funny and made the night an experience. He called us by our names and got to know us during the dinner. He set us up with one of the sweet wine carafe that made the wine even more delicious.
It is just a steak house, and if you are a person who wants all the fancy trimmings on a steak, then why are you eating a fine steak? When I want a steak, I want it to taste like a steak. The filet was amazing, so tender and was perfectly cooked.
This is one of my favorite restaurants and a tradition in Nashville for years. The old South atmosphere, fabulous food and amazing staff make this my go to restaurant for an impromptu drinks after work or a special occasion dinner with family....a place to come back to again!! P.S. The homemade corn cakes and butter are to die for!!!!
Wonderful steak, professional service and quiet atmosphere. This is the way a dining experience should be like. Prices are reasonable for the quality.
Had dinner with business associates at this wonderful old home. Our waiter was on top of everything and very entertaining. The restaurant is in an old plantation home and a throw back to the old days. The food was fine along with the service.
Dinner was amazing! "king" Arthur treated us like royalty. Service was impeccable. Steaks were mouth watering. Great wine selection. The lemon cheesecake was to die for. Can't wait to go back!!!
Reasons to go:
1. The cornbread pancakes with gobs of butter. They are addictive.
2. The wedge salad. Probably the best in town,
3. Steak. It is their specialty and it shows. Get the half filet because you will have stuffed yourself silly on the cornbread.
4. You'll feel like you are stepping back in time. It's like a country club restaurant stuck in the 1950s.
The menu has remained steadfast over the years, and the fish specials are a good bet for those who want a steak alternative. Jimmy Kelly's also serves a killer twice-baked potato.
This is a must if your visiting Nashville and want to experience the true southern plantation experience. The service is outstanding and the food is excellent.
I've been to Jimmy Kelly's several times. I've taken my daughters and women friends and we are all so well impressed with the whole experience. I rate it 5 stars due to this. From the entry of the house, to the bannister stair case, to the tables, to the bar to the wait staff to the food to the owner. Mike Kelly sets the tone to the place and all others follow suit. Pricing is reasonable for a great steak house.The next noticeable item is the wait staff, all older black kind gentlemen. Every time I have been, all have shown a true interest in my experience, anything I ask for, they have been able to accommodate me. The experience you just can't beat.
