We have visited the Stockyard several times. We have even had two corporate Christmas parties there. We went tonight and it was horrible. I NEVER give bad reviews. My husband and I look for fine dining wherever we travel. We are used to

Listen up folks - was at this "Establishment" this past week, if there is a negative rating system this restaurant would get a -10!! That's right I would rate it as one of the ten worst steakhouses I have ever eaten out. I don't mind

My friends and I went here last week and we were surprised how the night turned out. They have a nice little bar that has some of the best drinks that I ever tasted.

Went here for our anniversary. Took the Dry-Aged surf and turf option. Two Manhattan strips grilled over Hickory charcoal and a large lobster to share. As far as I know, this is the only restaurant to offer a luxury like this in the city. Great experience.

If there was a negative rating I'd use it. I don't mind paying for a good steak. Operative work ""good"". Well this was my second and last visit to this place. $40 for a prime rib that was tasteless, tough, full of sinew and as much fat as meat is a bit much. Add $7 for a potato and $7 for a small head of lettuce, called a baby iceberg salad. Ridiculously expensive. Oh! and $16 for a margarita. Should have gone to a Sizzler, Outback or Logan's Road House. Would have had a better steak and saved over $100 bucks. This place has gone so far downhill, not sure if it can recover.....I know I will not return...

I brought my wife and mother, we skipped the appetizers, we each had a steak, vegetable, potato, shared one bottle of wine and each had a desert. \n\nWith a 15% tip, the check came to $527.00. \n\nThe appalling thing about this experience wasn't the the mind-numbing price tag. For this sort of money one should reasonably anticipate an above average meal. However, the steaks were tough and not cooked to order. Every single one of them! We spent the entire meal vigorously sawing with our serrated knives the meat from the sinew and gristle and chewing like we were eating cheap overcooked pork chops at a roadside diner. The vegetables that came with this meal arrived under-cooked and only slightly warmer than room temperature. The potatoes au gratin were semi-raw. \n\nWhen you are ordering ? la carte (paying separately for everything on your plate) and paying almost $100 just for the steak, this isn't just a disgrace, in my opinion, there is something else going on. It is inconceivable that the management is not aware of the inferior quality of the produce they are sending out to the table. Nor is it possible that they have not read or heard any feedback in this regard. \n\nSeveral days later, still stinging from the feeling that I had been cheated like a poor dumb rube, I called the restaurant and asked to speak to the manager. He was a polite young man. He listened attentively and regretfully apologized and thanked me for telling him all about it. I hung up feeling pretty sure that he had heard all of this many times before, had apologized many times before and was really not in a position to do anything about it or lose any sleep over it. \n\nYou have been warned. This establishment is in the sheep shearing business...... and you are the sheep.

We should have taken a clue from the almost empty parking lot. Ambience was quaint but the whole building smelled like backed up sewage. The menu is extremely overpriced for the quality of food we were served. We had the Kobe filet and it was nothing special. The service was the only element of their ""fine dining"" we enjoyed. Please don't waste your time. If you want a good steak, try Stoney River down by Cool Springs. The food, service and ambience is delightful! \nHappy Dining,\nMisty

Worst experience we have had in years. Not afraid to pay for great meal with ambience and quality! This was a waste of both time and money. Embarrassing to our city. Total tourist trap. Hotel and shuttles vans bring in the unsuspecting and we live visitors left with this horrific experience. Staff untrained and rude- not at all the former experience of the delightful staff that had been around for years and enjoyed their jobs. Pricing is a joke. -----Don't do this to yourself or your friends.

I am from out of town and was staying at the Opryland Hotel for business. The concierge recommended the Stockyard Restaurant for a great steak. She made the reservation for us, and one of their shuttle buses picked us up from the hotel and took us to dinner for free! Once there, the building is spectacular. It was once a stockyard, and is a historical landmark for the state of Tenn. Our server was Lisa, and she was amazing! She was very knowledgeable about the menu and the extensive wine list (that just won the Wine Spectator 2 cup award for excellence). We ordered Cain 5, a blend from Napa that was exquisite! Lisa told us about the Kobe Beef specials. We all had the Kobe Tomahawk Ribeye w/ family style portions of lobster bacon mac n cheese and Sweet mash potatoes. The Tomahawk was the best steak I've ever had and the mac n cheese was decadent! It was expensive, but worth every penny. I eat at Flemmings, Ruth's Chris, or the Palm in every city I'm in. This was a uniquely Nashville dining experience like I've never had before. I will be back this fall with my entire staff of 40 for a sales meeting. Yes, they have private dining for big groups, too! Loved it Loved it Loved it!!!

Very disappointed in the food and way over priced. I sent back my salmon because it was way over salted the waiter brought me another and i still could not eat it. Waiter insisted we have a desert and i was thinking that it was no charge because of my horrible meal but no they charged me for it and the over salted salmon. I have never had that done in any restaurant.. Unbelievable!!

WAY OVER PRICED! Waiters definitely try to upsell you from a $39 steak to a $109 steak... in a sneaky way. \n\nCharming place/atmosphere to be sure, but the food is just okay... not mind-blowing like we thought it was going to be and definitely not worth the over $1000 we paid for our party of 4.\n\nDon't believe the hype. It's not worth the money.

My impression, very nice historic Nashville building, nice architecture as well on the inside. Staff was nice and waiter was polite. Not sure if it was me, but when I looked at the prices on the menu and when the waiter went over the menu items the prices where double. And the bill reflected that latter. Nice wine list though all of it was over priced. My bill was over 200 dollars and my wine came in a glass from Wal-Mart (my guess). I would have expected a Riedel wine glass at these exorbitant prices. TGI Fridays has better wine glasses than the Stockyard. I will say my New York Strip was probably the best I ever had and the dessert was delicious as well. My date got the peppered chicken and she loved it. If you have money to blow, it may be well worth it to try the Stockyard, maybe just to say you?ve been there. Expect to spend over 200 dollars for two people. Overall I?d say I am glad I ate there, once, would I go back, no. For myself I do not have the resources to spend this kind of money for dinner.

Wish I could leave negative stars! Horrible across the board! Service was shady. Steaks were probably horse meat. I ordered their KC Strip off the menu that somehow got replaced with their special bone in Strip. Even after I specifically asked if the normal ""40 Day aged KC Strip"" was bone in because I did not want a bone in strip. Either my server lied or was incompetent and didn't know any better. Skip the Mac and Cheese and just knaw on a piece of card board. Sent steak back after struggling with the bad steak knife to saw through the grissle filled meat. Waiter told management but all he did was walk by our table 3-4 times and never stopped by to see if there was a way to remedy the situation. I sought him out after paying $175.30 bill for two bites of what they called Certified Angus beef to share my thoughts and quickly figured out that the incompetence came from the top down. I'm in the beef industry and I would suggest to the Certified Angus people that they pull their endorsement from this restaurant. I have never sent a dish back nor have I ever taking the time to write a review but I hope this keeps others from the tremendous disappointment that I felt.

Extremely over priced and very average food. Better steaks from Safeway. Wait staff could double as con-men. Be sure to ask the price when they try to switch you from baked potato to loaded potato - $40.00 are you kidding.

This place was recommended by my realtor - this should have raised serious red flags, but thought we'd try anyways - big mistake!\r\n\r\nI've been to the finest steak houses in the US and the Stock-Yard should not be included on any top lists. It's extremely touristy (think tour buses pulling up throughout the evening and unloading large groups of tourists from area hotels), outrageously expensive ($10 for a bland improperly cooked and seasoned side vegetable or iceberg lettuce salad with bottled dressing and croutons from a bag), and has the corniest atmosphere (southern plantation style home in a brick building). I would have preferred a warehouse feel with brown paper tablecloths to go along with the ""this used to be a stockyard"" story the waiter was forced to tell use about. \r\n\r\nI want the $250 back that I paid for a meal for 2!!!! Worst dining experience in the Nashville area ever.

After reading all of the negative reviews on here, I felt compelled to write a great one, as my husband and I just ate there for our anniversary this past June. The food was fantastic. Despite some patrons claiming prices were not give to them when the specials were read, we did not have this problem. We knew how much everything costed before we ordered it. My husband had the dry aged New York Strip, and it was probably the best steak I've ever tasted! Our sever was excellent as well. Very knowledgabe without being overbearing. The only drawback was the price. It was quite expensive, but for a special occasion, not out of the question. I also thought the markups on their wine list were quite high, but we opted for mixed drinks and were charged very reasonable prices. When we were done eating, they encouraged us to go upstairs and have a look at the whole facility, as it was our first time there. The property is beautiful & unique. I would highly recommend this to a couple looking for a great meal on a special occasion or a business gathering where you want to impress your clients!

I sincerely cannot believe this place is still open. The prices are extremely high the portions are very small. There is absolutely no way you can get out of there under $250.00 per couple. We had one steak, one side item, one bottle of wine $55.00 dollars which cost under $12.00 in a liquor store and our tab was $243.58 before tip. The food was not very good, bland and the portions were extremely small, and not very flavorful.\r\n\r\nI would not endorse this restaurant to anyone I liked.

I should have known when we arrived early Saturday evening and found the restaurant all but empty that something was not right about this place. Even though we were one of the only tables occupied in the restaurant, it took us FOREVER to get our food. I was seriously disappointed once it arrived. The portions were larger than I expected, but who wants a large portion of bad food? The steak was very dry. Definitely not worth what they charge. WAY too overpriced. To top it all off, the bathroom was filthy! There were dead bugs on the floor!! YUK!!!

Our waiter, Ray was awful. He didn't tell us any of the specials or the market prices; I had to ask. Once we got our food, he didn't even come by our table to see if we needed anything. The whole time I was eating my wine and water glass was empty. \r\n

This restaurant is misleading and extremely overpriced. The food was cold and not good. We paid 30.00 a bowl for soup, when we were asked if we wanted soup or salad with our meal, then we were charged this outragoueus price! This place is absolutely ridiculos. Our meal was 240.00 and I would rather eat at Longhorns, much better food. This meal was for two people folks I mean this is crazy! Never eat there again, matter of fact wont even drive down that street, may be a Toll street now and charge you to drive by the place. This outfit is not worth rating. Sir your Tea is not worth 6.00 a glass. Your steak was tough. I should have known there was noboby there on a sat. night! I cant pubish this review without a rating and they dont deserve one !

Disappointing food. Exhorbitant prices. Wheelchair accessibility is dangerous. My brother-in-law had been here 10 years ago and raved about it. We went and had to, literally, go in the back door, up a very poorly-maintained wooden ramp and knock on a door that turned out to be in the middle of a dining room, so it interrupted everyone's meal in that room and was embarrassing to us. The steak was just average, the stuffed flounder was quite overcooked and tasteless, and it looked like the frozen rolled up ones in the grocery store. Everything was terribly overpriced, especially the wine and sides. To get to the wheelchair-accessible restroom, we had to (and I'm not making this up!) be escorted by a staff member, had to go outside the restaurant, down that rickety ramp, around the courtyard, and down a loading dock ramp that was so steep that it was dangerous, into the basement level, which is apparently a rarely-used banquet room that was hot, humid, dark and dank. The escort had to stay there while we used the facilities, then we had to backtrack up that extremely steep ramp and into the building, again interrupting other guests' dinners. And, to top it off, we got to pay $250.00 for the privilege! This place may have been good 10 year ago, but as far as I can see, the only reason it's still in business is the rose-colored-glasses-skewed memory of past glory. I live here in Nashville and this place is an embarrassment. If you want good steak, try any of the other steak places in town. They're all better than this one.

I have lived in Nashville my entire life and never been to Stock-Yard until recently. There was good reason behind never going there. \nThe waiter was overly pretentious claiming everything was ""the best you will ever have,"" and ""wasn't that just perfect."" He referred the ladies as ""My lady"" which was pretty creepy since we were at a restaurant and not the Renaissance Fair. After asking for a minute to look over the menu, he went into the hallway, watched us for literally a minute, and then came back in. Three of the guys ordered lobster with their steaks, so the waiter asked if they wanted to split a fresh Maine lobster instead to get more. I wished he would have also mentioned the lobster was $115.\nThe steaks were OK at best, little flavor and definitely not worth the $80 for the aged cut that ""locked in the juices.""

We enjoyed the occasion of our daughter's birthday but we could come more often if you served smaller portions and, thus, more reasonable prices.

Please, if you do nothing you need to read and believe this review. My husband and I recently ate at the Stockyard. People it was HORRIBLE. We went to the bar and the glasses were tiny and the and the drinks were watered down and were extremely small pours. All of the bottles of wine were 4 X the price of the same wine you can buy in the liquor store. The lobsters were $30.00 per pound, the steaks were anywhere from $50.00 per steak to a whopping $70.00 per steak. This place was a rip off from the bar to the check at the bitter end. Not worthy to still be in business!\r\n\r\nThe service was like listening to a time share spill, all around it was a cheesy experience. Horrible!!!!!!!!\r\n\r\nFYI I noticed some of the previous reviews that were not flattering have been removed. This is the worst restaurant by far in all of Davidson County, Tennessee!!\r\n\r\nThe portions were extremely small, the food was barely average. The bar and the size of the drinks were a rip off, if you want value for your money please go to Ruth Chris, The Palms, Flemings, Mortons or even go to Outback all of those places would be better than this tourtist trap. RUN FROM THIS PLACE IT IS A RIP OFF!!!!! \r\nDid I mention that you may need a body guard because the location not in a good part of town. I would suggest BYOB and bring a bag lunch, you will need both!

Let's start with the good - service was attentive and the steaks were good. The building is unique and provides an interesting setting for a steakhouse.\r\n\r\nNow the bad - service was over the top. Everything was the ""best you will ever have"" or ""a fantastic choice, one of my favorites"" or ""was everything just exactly perfect and beautiful?"" While attentive service is good, the constant boasting of how great the steaks and wine are, how great the building is, and how wonderful it is they have a $480K bottle of wine got old real quick.\r\n\r\nFurther, the wine prices were at least 50% higher across the board compared to even NY City prices. I would expect a great southern steakhouse to have a bartender who knows how to make one of the great classic cocktails - the Sazerac. What I received was a wiskey on the rocks with a rock sugar swizzle stick to use to stir in the sweetness.\r\n\r\nAt the end of the day, this is a decent steakhouse that tries to sell iteself at every opportunity. They should let their food and service do their talking and avoid boasting about their greatness so people can enjoy a nice quality steak dinner without feeling like they are attending a time-share sales demo.

I had heard the Stock-Yard Restaurant was an awesome steakhouse in Nashville. Let me just tell you, it definitely was not! I called to make a reservation for mine and my husband's six year anniversary. The lady who took my reservations did not ask if we were coming for a special occassion or anything. Our waiter did not ask us this question as well. \r\n\r\nThe building is very outdated. We walked in, and the smell was overwhelming. It smelled exactly like body odor. We are both 26 years old. We order our drinks from our waiter, and he tells my husband that he is not able to server him. My dog chewed a small piece of my husband's driver's license off, and the waiter said he couldn't server him because of that. I had never heard of that before, but it was fine. We ordered an appetizer. We ordered the crab cakes because they are my favorite. It was $13.25 for two of the smallest crab cakes I have ever seen. We ordered our filets, which were $40 a piece just for the meat. The filets were alright, but I have gotten a filet at Stoney River which was 10 times better than this one. Someone came to pick up our dirty plates from our table, and this guy smelled so bad. Now we know where the body odor smell came from. It was so bad, it made my stomach hurt. Our bill wound up being $160. Our waiter went to charge my husband's credit card, and he brings us back a bill that says $175. He tried to screw us out of $15. I asked him how this happened, and he looked at how much we gave him for a tip and said ""Your bill got mixed up with someone else's"". Well that is funny to me because you brought us the right bill in the first place. \r\n\r\nAll in all, I would not recommend going here to anyone. It was a horrible experience. It was not something or somewhere I would want to go for a nice dinner. They also put us in a room with two groups of eight people. They were so loud, and it was obvious me and my husband were trying to have a nice dinner. That definitely didn't happen! Horrible service, horrible experience!

This restaurant preys on your wallet. They have a don't ask don't tell policy about prices of specials and group appetizers. Wouldn't a reasonable person expect specials to be of similar price to menu items and not twice as much. Bring a group of business prospects to this restaurant and I guarantee you will be shocked when the bill arrives. The steak I had was only average. I am being very honest when I say that I have had better prime rib at small town supper clubs in Wisconsin and even the Outback restaurant. An appetizer plate for a group cost around $200.00 and their "special" a 22 oz bone in strip was $80.00. Oh but they don't tell you what the cost is. With no desert, only one appetizer plate, dinner for 8 cost $1,000.00. I entertain customers frequently and have had the good fortune to eat at other top 10 steakhouses, but this one doesn't belong on the top ten. Rediculous prices and large steaks does not make a great steak house. I travel to Nashville yearly and entertain customers each time. I won't be taking anymore customers to the Stock-Yard. I felt abused. If you travel and want a real "top 10" steakhouse try Manny's in Minneapolis it is awesome by comparison.

Why would you go to a place like Morton's or Ruths Chris when there is a steakhouse like the Stockyard? This is one of the most unique restaurants I've ever been to. Beautiful, elegant atmosphere, mouthwatering food, impeccable serivce and a wine list that would rival any you would come accross in the world. I had their signature blackened Prime Rib that was probablly the best I've ever tasted. You'll spend a few bucks but its worth every penny. Highly recommended!

Pros: Steak/ Service/ Wine/ Atmosphere

Now granted, I'm not an expert on fine dining, but I know good food when it is set before me. We were served some GREAT food. We started out with lamb chops which was not on the menu. It was recommended by our wonderful waitress. It was a nice startoff for the meal to come. When our meal arrived, my wife enjoied the petite filet with russet potatos (Not that good. It was ok at best.) and I enjoied the Prime NY strip which was also not on the menu and the spinach with a glass of wine. The spinach was awesome. I wanted the aged strip but they had ""just ran out"". Normally I don't have any room left over for dessert at the end of the meal, but I shared some of the chocolate cake with my wife. It was our 2nd anniversary, and sharing seemed like the appropriate thing to do! I tell ya, it was the BEST chocolate cake i've ever eaten. I can't begin to describe it. I wouldn't do it justice. \r\n\r\nI really didn't spare any expense on our meal. After all, it was our anniversary. I intended to spend $100 or a little more for our meal. I was sure surprised to see we racked up $160 for our meal. It consisted of lamb chops for appetiser ($16), 7oz filet , potatos, cake, 16oz prime strip ($60), cream of spinach, and a glass of jester cabernet wine. \r\n\r\nTo sum it up.... I would recomment this restaruant to anyone who has never been to the Stockyard, but I would also recommend that unless they wanted to spend $100 on a meal, they should only choose the food that is on the menu

Hands down, this is the only steakhouse that I would bring my clients to. The atmosphere, history, service and the food are top notch. I can't imagine bringing anyone to a run-of-the-mill chain like Mortons or the Palm when this one-of-a-kind treasure is here. The wine list is Unbleiveable!!!

Pros: The best steak and lobster

Cons: Not Downtown

.

The only reason it is highly reguarded is because of the historic setting. It is at the site of the old nashville stockyard where cattle were bought and sold. There are many different dining rooms that are all unique in their own way but that's about it. It has a rough location and the food is simply not very good. Very, very overpriced for the quality. I went once and I will not return, service was not very good...pretty much matched the food. If your gonna spend the money go to the other side of town and check out Ruth's Chris.

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. \r\n\r\nBasically, this is by far the worst nice steakhouse in this city. Mortons, Flemings, Ruths' Chris, Jimmy Kelly's, Sperry's, The Palm.\r\n\r\nEven Outback Steakhouse might be better than this place.\r\n\r\nDon't go!

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.

The atmosphere is okay in an old building, but it could use some updates.

Our service was terrible. We waited a half an hour before the wine and bread were served and then continued to be ignored when we needed water.

The waiter was just plain strange-he was literally dancing around our table trying to be funny or cute, but it was just awkward. Our food was mediocre at best especially for what we paid for our steaks. Do yourself a favor and go to Stoney River or even Longhorn for a better steak for 1/3 of the price!

I have NO clue how this place is supposedly one of the top 10 steakhouses in the U.S. I am stumped.

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.

Stock-Yard is one of the top steak houses Nashville. It is perfect for a romantic night on the town, they also cater to large parties if you need.The atmosphere is really cool and has a historic flavor to it. They have a large selection of wines. I would recommend reservations

The Stockyard has great food. The chef's specials are always worth trying. I had one of the best salad's ever! The building is a little old which makes it hard to compete with Flemmings, Ruth Chris, etc....but the food stands up to these others.

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

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.

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.\r\n\r\nThe 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.\r\n\r\nThe 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

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.\r\n\r\nThe waiter was attentive, but then forgot our appetizer.

Pros: Steaks were tasty. Lots of free parking

Cons: Ambiance is lacking, prices are WAY too high for what you get.

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.

Pros: Location; ambience

Cons: Service; prices

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.

Pros: Romantic, Valet Service

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.

Pros: They have valet services. The inside is beautiful. Staff is friendly

Cons: Food is overrated! Chef's culinaire skills below average. Food likely to be dry.

The Stockyard is a happening place. When you are there you have to try the steaks they are the best and a order of roster fries. The steaks are cut for a man's size appetiate.

I will attempt to enumerate the litany of complaints that I have about dinner last Friday night. I cannot imagine how the place has the reputatin. The escargot and crab cake appetizers were good - not great - and things went downhill from there. We are not fond of having to ask the wait staff for the price of everything; it makes the customer sound and feel like a cheapskate. Our waitress recommended a 3 lb. lobster for the table, but we had to ask her the price. We were charged for a 3 1/2 lb., but it couldn't have been more than 2 lb (which, at $38/lb makes a difference). SO cheesy -she brought ONE cup of melted butter for the FOUR of us! And, she didn't show up for us to ask for more. Every steak was overcooked. The three 7 oz. filets together may have weighed a pound, which didn't matter since they were dry, tasteless, and inedible anyway. When we brought that fact to the waitress's attention, she offered dessert as restitution. She never brought the water and extra bread we requested. Our steaks were not only overcooked but cold after setting under the warming lamp while waiting on our lobster to be cooked. The lobster initially intended for our table went to the table of 8 behind us, seated shortly after we were. They received their lobster before we did, and it didn't exactly take geniuses to figure out that the kitchen held our steaks while they rushed in another lobster for us, undercooking the claw meat and ruining our steaks. I ordered a bottle of Cab for dinner ($80). The waitress recommended the evening's special Cab instead, gushing on about its lush qualities, again no price stated. So, I asked. She muttered and stumbled out something inaudible. I asked again. She finally said $310. None of the four of us will ever go there again. For $480 - before tip - I believe it's reasonable to expect higher quality food, service, concern, accountability. I shouldn't have to beg a steakhouse to properly cook a $32 filet (ala cart).
