This is a staple of my Nashville trips for years, one day I will get the courage and line dance the face off a tall lanky fellow who looks like his legs aren't attached at the hips. Anyway the food is great but its loud and thats why I go there. Not for hipsters. Enjoy the crowd and feed off of it... lose yourself lose you mind.

Love this venue...saw The Bravery here a few years ago. It has great sound, layout, food & service. We were very pleased...and the concert rocked!

We went in around 9ish on a Saturday night for our anniversary. The band really was not anything remarkable, but the variety of the music they played was very good!! We did not eat much, but did get the appetizer sampler which was great!! Our server, Stella, was attentive, nice, and brought everything rather quickly considering the place was packed!! The drinks were a bit costly, did not look like the cool pictures, but were tasty!

I was a nice place. It had friendly people and ok food. I prefer something with a little more edge to it. Family friendly place.

We were planning a family reunion in Nashville and had one night to visit downtown. After reading good reviews about the Wildhorse Saloon, I called three or four weeks in advance to make a reservation for 11 people on Friday night, July 16th, at 5:45 pm. The woman on the phone at the Wildhorse told me reservations would not be needed at 5:45 pm on a Friday night because they had lots of tables. But I told her I'd prefer to make a reservation if possible since there were eleven of us coming. So the said okay and took my name down. Well... she told me she took my name down.\n\nOn Friday afternoon around 3 o'clock in the afternoon I called the Wildhorse, spoke with Madeline, and asked that our evening reservation be changed from 11 people to 12 people. Madeline told me that was fine and she would change it.\n\nImagine my surprise when we arrived at the Wildhorse a few hours later to be told that they had no record of our reservation and that several large groups had booked the Wildhorse, leaving only 20 tables for the general public. We were told our group would have to wait an hour and a half for one of the twenty available tables they had left for the evening that were not booked by the large groups.\n\nI asked to speak with the manager, and Eddie came out to speak with us. Eddie asked me if we could come back another day...er.. no.. we were from out of town and could not do that... I asked him why Madeline had not told me a few hours earlier when I called that she did not see my name on the reservation list... but he did not have an answer for that.\n\nI finally told him that I would be mentioning this story on the Internet, and then suddenly he said he'd check to see if perhaps he could find a table in a corner somewhere to seat us. He came back a short time later, apologized, and said he had no tables available.\n\nSo I suggest that if you make a reservation here, check it twice, and then check it again. And then hope for the best.

Pros: Hmm...

Cons: They don't honor reservations

A group of my friends and I go to restaurants to eat lunch every Friday together. Since we all work downtown, we generally tend to eat somewhere in that area that way we can all eat, catch up with each other and be back to work within our lunch hour. Today, we all decided Wildhorse would be the restaurant of choice. We all got there, sat down and were greated by our waitress who promptly got our drinks and took our food orders. My friend Ashley and I decided to order fried pickles as an appetizer since we both have an affinity for unhealthy snacks. Thirty minutes later our drinks are empty and our food (including our appetizer) has not arrived and our waitress has seemingly disappeared. Bearing in mind that I used to be a server, I try to keep my cool and be understanding even though the growling in my stomach is driving me crazy. Forty minutes later, our waitress emerges from whatever dark abyss she has been hiding out from to give us refills. We still have yet to receive our appetizer, much less our food. At this point, I am started to get annoyed. Not only do I have to go back to work in twenty minutes, I will be doing that on an empty stomach apparently. Even if by some freak accident (a stove not working in the kitchen, etc.,) the food happens to take forty minutes to cook, surely the fried pickles would not take that long. We asked to see a manager and explained to him that we only get an hour to eat and get back to work, he said he would go check on our food and come back. He never came back. Instead our server comes back to our table and says (direct quote I might add), ""That's my bad, yo. It's gonna be a few more minutes."" At this point we had already been there fifty minutes and the only thing we had gotten that we had ordered was sweet tea, and even at that we had to wait a good forty minutes before we got a refill. After informing the waitress that we all only had an hour to eat and get back to work, she said, ""Well ya'll are free to do what you want. Again, it was my bad"". Needless to say, I left and grabbed some Sbarros on my way back to work. Her saying ""my bad"" wasn't going to give me food and put me back at work within the time alloted for me for lunch. I would have talked to the manager again, but he was nowhere to be found, but I imagine he was trying to fix someone else's bad. I understand when it gets warmer out there are more tourists and kids are out of school, but why on earth would you subject your local customers to such awful service and not even offer them some sort of compensation? I wasn't looking for a gift certificate or anything like that, something as little as a sincere apology from the manager would have been a heck of a lot better than a ""my bad"" and would have been enough to make me want to come back to eat there.

Pros: Good Music Sometimes

Cons: Awful service

I am 25 and the very rude bouncer inspected and questioned my ID for 5 minutes. I could not get a waiter or bartenders attention for over 30 minutes. The food and drinks are way overpriced and nothing special. They dont act like they want your business so dont give it to them! Other than some big country stars coming to this venue it has literally nothing to offer.

Went for the 100 Monkeys concert Nov 8. There was a long line outside and if I didn't have a VIP ticket I would have been pissed to stand in that long line. Waited 10 minutes and no waitress. Saw her and couldn't wave her down. Resorted to Whistling Loudly to get her attention. Saw her one more time that night. Needed to see her way more than that.\r\n\r\nConcert was awesome! Sounded great! So, entertainment wonderful, but the service was BAD

A group of friends wanted to go to this very popular club. While it was fun to watch and even participate in the line dancing, and to hear the band, don't entertain the thought that you will be able to eat and talk with other guests around you...the place is so loud, that you will hardly hear yourself shouting to the person across the table from you. The staff seem to be as attentive as they can be with such a huge crowd. I had the monte cristo and a couple drinks. Overall, an expensive evening for food that really doesn't cut it and service that does its best but ultimately fails due to the large number of clients. A fine place to visit, but I wouldn't want to return.

My wife and I went to the Wildhorse for a Billy Ray Cyrus concert last night. Being from out of town and first time folks, we didn't know what to expect. We had ""VIP"" seating which means a reserved seat at a table on the main floor. We were one row back from the stage as well. The whole first floor is ""VIP"" so don't let that fool you. The second and third floors are standing room only and hence not ""VIP"". It was a good show with a couple decent opening acts that sounded good. Food was a bit pricey and with the doors opening at 6pm and the show not starting until several hours later they are sure to get you to buy something (Cheeseburger w/ fries = $12). The beer is resonably priced though at 4.50 for a pint of local draft.\r\n\r\nAs it was Billy Ray Cyrus ""with special guest"", rumors were swirling that Mylie would be there so there were almost as many of her fans (and their parents) there as his. Sure enough just before he came on, the whole Cyrus family came out from back stage and sat at the table next to us. Even with 2 uniformed police officers and 3 Wildhorse security guys they were a bit overwhlemed. I helped out by sitting in one of the aisles to their table and blocking it (for which the security guys rewarded me with a couple beers - thanks!) The family and the security guys handled it like pros other than being a bit undermanned. Too many rude folks wanted to walk up to the table and get in their face to take pictures, etc. and a bunch of kids kept trying to get people to pass them notes, etc. Eventually Mylie went on stage to perform with her dad which calmed it down a lot but then security was having to pull people off of the stage. It was kind of funny even it is was kind of a pain.\r\n\r\nThe concert was great. I went up stairs at one point and the view/seats there weren't bad either. I'd go back again but I'd eat before I went. I might avoid a Mylie Cyrus concert there though. Billy rocked and I loved that he had her and his son come do songs with him.

Cons: food a bit high

We ate dinner at the Wildhorse recently and had a blast! It's not just a restaurant. They offer free line dance lessons throughout the night on the biggest dance floor I have ever seen. It was great fun. The live music was awesome too. They even had free pool tables on the third floor. Dinner was awesome too. You have to get the Fried Pickles. Yumbo! The ribs are fantastic and the key lime pie is to die for.\r\nIt's just plain fun!

Pros: Offers more than just dinner - includes entertainment - dancing, billards, live music

Cons: sometimes closed for special concerts - check online calendar before you go

ok i know we all go here to see the show that was good. but the food and service was awful. If you have a show going on and pretty much sold out you should bring in more waiters, not have one guy run for 80 people at once! The food was over priced and didnt taste good at all to salty, two hours later was in bathroom with bad stomach pains.

I absolutely love line dancing and find Wildhorse a perfect place to go on a Saturday night to have fun. Personally, I love how they teach a new line dance every hour. The only frustrating thing is that sometimes they have concerts or parties and block off the dance floor. So make sure that if you go, you check that they aren't having such an event. I haven't actually eaten here, but if you just want to have fun for free, going for the dancing is worth it. I go to Vandy and a lot of my friends like to go when we need something exciting to do. Usually, there are a couple really good line dancers on the floor that can teach you a couple of tricks too! It's awesome. They have sorta random hours so I'd check on a website like Sneaky Sunday if you are planning on going. They can let you know when they are open. (Believe me, you don't want to get stuck looking for a parking space downtown and then realize that the place is closed!) :)

I just finished lunch at Wildhorse, while the food was good, the service was awful. After being seated, we waited for about 10 minutes before our server came to the table. Our drink and food order was taken at that time. Server brought back one incorrect drink and didn't bring the coffee ordered. When the correct drink was brought back (still no coffee), the food arrived 5 minutes afterwards. Food was really good. The server finally brought the coffee after our meals came and we never saw her again. Finished lunch and waited 10-15 minutes before we found someone to ask to find her and bring our checks. She never apologized, said thank you or anything! The people next to us got their drink orders when their food came out. Terrible service and will never go back. I work downtown and will be sure to spread the word!

This is James Westborn. \r\nI am going to be hitting every country, dance or entertainment club in the Nashville area thru 2008. \r\nI will be writing reviews on all of them.\r\nThe Wildhorse was my first stop: \r\nI arrived at 8:30 and the older guy at the door was great. he tried hard to find us a discount, like having your Krogger card. I think we paid $5.00 each/my wife and I.\r\nAfter in, if you want to sit anywhere on the floor tables, you will have to order food. That means, if not eating you will be sitting at the bar, which there are several. The place looks wonderful and the stage is premier. The band plays for 40 minutes and then they spin songs for fill.\r\nNo one really knows how to dance there. The band played a simple two-step and not one couple got up to do it. Same for a Waltz, Cha-Cha, etc. They just start line dancing, whatever the first person does. The DJ does not call out the songs (Disappointing) so you have no clue what is next. The reason calling out dances is a plus is, then you know, I can go get such and such to dance on the next song or hey, I know that line dance...etc. \r\nThe sound system is awesome and that is something see/hear. Location is great/downtown/and we had fun. We did get up and do the Cha-Cha and that turned every head near the floor. So, if you want a place to stick out.......thats a possibility for you. \r\nThere are probably 50% tourists in there at one time, so they don't care too much about the politics of dancing, yet the club could easily double there income and have cameos by Celebs if they played the dancing game more than the food game. Country folk like to dance and a club that caters to dancers will be far above the rest.\r\nSo, that's James Westborn's review...who's next?\r\nSilverado's Dance Hall prior to Easter 08. \r\nAs far as my credentials: I was a regular dancer on American Bandstand until it went off the air.\r\nI am also a country artist, living just North of Nashville, relocated from Ca.\r\nMaking me un-biased

My husband and I bought tickets to see Credence Clearwater Revival. First of all, no where in the concert ad did it show that John Fogarty was no longer with the band. I guess if I had kept up with information on the band over the years I would know that but unfortunately I didn't (which is why I bought VIP tickets). The tickets said the show started at 7:00. We got there around 6:40. The music didn't start until 7:30 and unfortunately, it wasn't Credence. Once again, no where did it state there was a warm up band. To top it all off, it was a country band and we are not country music fans. We had to sit and listen to country music for two hours. The waiters and waitresses were obviously having a hard time getting food to people because we were constantly being asked if an order was ours. By the time Credence came on stage at 9:30 or so, we were hurting all over from sitting in those hard chairs and really didn't care what Credence sounded like. We just wanted out of there. We'll never go to another show there again. Like one reviewer said, if you like country you'll probably love it but never again for us. If you do go to a show, do your research on the bands.

I guess I'm spoiled because where I learned to dance, which was Houston Texas, people know how to dance 2-Step, Triple Step, Waltz, Swing, Cotton Eyed Joe, Schottische, etc. I live near Indy now and there are great places to couples dance there too, such as Mike's Music & Dance Barn and 8 Seconds Saloon. But, Wildhorse Saloon is not a couples dance place! If you like line dancing, which is for people who don't know how to dance, then it will be great for you. It's amazing to me that in the Country Music Capital there is no good real County Western Dancing! I like the place otherwise, smoking is reduced to only at the bars and kids are allowed in, so that works good for my wife and I and our 10 year old twins. The food and service is great and the atmosphere is great with all the horse statues. But, we went to go dancing and were the only ones there that knew how to dance, so we felt out of place while everyone else was line dancing. They teach line dancing, but don't teach and dance etiquette, such as leaving room around the outside for us 2-Steppers.

I guess I'm spoiled because where I learned to dance, which was Houston Texas, people know how to dance 2-Step, Triple Step, Waltz, Swing, Cotton Eyed Joe, Schottische, etc. I live near Indy now and there are great places to couples dance there too, such as Mike's Music & Dance Barn and 8 Seconds Saloon. But, Wildhorse Saloon is not a couples dance place! If you like line dancing, which is for people who don't know how to dance, then it will be great for you. It's amazing to me that in the Country Music Capital there is no good real County Western Dancing! I like the place otherwise, smoking is reduced to only at the bars and kids are allowed in, so that works good for my wife and I and our 10 year old twins. The food and service is great and the atmosphere is great with all the horse statues. But, we went to go dancing and were the only ones there that knew how to dance, so we felt out of place while everyone else was line dancing. They teach line dancing, but don't teach and dance etiquette, such as leaving room around the outside for us 2-Steppers.

Pros: Atmosphere

Cons: Not a good place for couples Country Western Dancing

You probably have to be really into country music here to enjoy yourself. I'm not so the experience isn't on the top of my list nor is the food. But its a nice clean building and isn't kitschy. Nicely sized for concerts but too big to feel cozy if you are just hanging out. I've been here for events and the food is very average.

I used to dance at the Wildhorse back when they had the TV tapings and there actually was a LOT of country-western dancing going on there. Now days, the Wildhorse caters more to the tourists. I got tired of going and having the DJ's spend 30-40 minutes 'entertaining' the crowd before teach the lesson. I would go to the Wildhorse wanting to dance, and found myself sitting more than dancing throughout the evening. And, they allow TOO MANY kids to run around the floor while people are trying to dance. I'm rating it a '4' only because the food is good. I MISS THE OLD WILDHORSE DAYS! Also, I wish they would have their concerts begin at 9:00 llike in the past, instead of at 10:00.

The Wild Horse Saloon is a place that is a must to visit anytime that you are visiting Nashville. I remember as a child that I would watch their specials they had on TNN with the line dancing and I always wanted to go there. I finally got to go and I really enjoy being there. The majority of the staff is great although I did have one bad waitress. The good part about this bar is that if you are under 21 you can get in with your parent(s). I would highly recommend this place to anyone. They also have great food and music.

If you are a 1st time traveler or have never been to this uniquely decorated club or ever taken a line dancing class this is a must see must do place to go. Where else can you see horses on the ceiling or sitting next to ya at the bat??? Tell me that!! The food is exquisite, the atmosphere is friendly & you may get to see a tv show set up or taping. Speaking from a rock & roller CA girl its 1st on my list whenever I get to Nashville. Once you go...you will feel a true sense of the country music scene, you won't be disappointed, Daytime or Nighttime.

The Wildhorse is an awsome place to relax and enjoy all the fun. Just ""let your hair down"" and go along with the plan for the evening instead of entering with expectations that are only in your mind. Great dance floor with instructors who are great. Best when there is a packed house (if you like crowds) and you can hardly move for all the people. I have never ever been disappointed with the food or drinks. Personal service does lack, but I like being left alone by waiters and ask for what I want when I want it. The Wildhors is one of the best fun places in Nashville to experience great country music. When the band plays ""Rock Top"", look out! The fun and relaxed atmosphere opens up and the night becomes young.The Wildhorse is a fantastic place for a corporate get-together. They take care of everything and leave the fun to you. Nobody does it better than The Wildhorse!

Me and my husband visited on 1/14/06. It was a big place and the bouncer was extremely nice. I'm only 23 but there was alot of immature teens around. The bartender was rude and seemed bothered by us when we would ask for a drink. He spoke to my husband like he was an idiot. They had lessons and the teachers were funny and friendly. extremely crowded. Only standing room and we got there at 7:30pm. the band that night was excellent. Alot of young kids running around and jumping on stage. Huge dance floor. Upstairs was closed due to a private party. Not one waitress asked if we needed anything. okay time, won't visit again unless there is a concert.

Okay, the line dances were sort of lame. The place was crowded. There were a lot of young people having fun, and that's a good thing. My wife and I were the only people two-stepping and we had to negotiate our way around the floor, but we had a blast. Funny that people commented that we were great dancers, we've only been dancing a year. Guess they just had nothing to compare it to. I would, and will, definitely go back. The dance floor was huge enough to make up for the crowds.

Visited Wildhorse Saloon 9/17/04 and had one of the most awesome experiences of our life! We saw the Ronnie Milsap concert. Sat with a very friendly couple from Kentucky which added to the total experience. They had the combination platter...GOOD CHOICE!!! It looked so inviting I ordered it (hubby ordered a rib eye). Both were excellent but mine was totally memorable! Best I've EVER had! Also had the combination appetizer which included FRIED PICKLES! Never heard of fried pickles but they will be in my dreams forever more! We had an excellent view of the stage, music was crystal clear and the volume not over powering. Our waitress was incredibly attentive under strenous conditions of a packed house...constantly checking on our needs. This is an experience we'll cherish the rest of our lives. We returned twice during our Nashville stay and had excellent service each time. CAN'T WAIT to return!!!

Well the venue is nice; big dance floor and a good ""bar"" atmosphere... but don't go for dinner. We sat for 35 minutes before a waitress even came to our table to take our drink order. We were seated at 6:45 and finished eating (and left) at 9:30, so don't go if you're in a hurry. I'll give our kind waitress the benefit of the doubt and say they were understaffed (which shouldn't happen on a Thursday night). We had the fried pickles appetizer which was good. The dinner was mediocre at best. The fries had a good flavor... If only they were warm. The steak and ribs were probably the worst I've had in Nashville. During the meal, we sat through two hours of annoying ""technical difficulties"" during the band's performance. For the hype, I was highly disappointed. I'm just glad we got there before the 7:00pm cover charge.

Music was mediocre, staff was rude....\n\nThe bouncer at the front door claimed to be an ""expert"" and told me that my ID was fake because there was a shadow in my picture. Luckily I had a copy of my voter registration in my wallet. He was very rude and arrogant to me and my friend. Basically we were treated like crap off the street. I will never go back there again. Also, my friend who was with me was underage, and he couldn't even get water at the bar!\n\nSo completely a waste of time.

This place totally rocks especially on Tuesday nights with National Dance Club!!!!!!! Serivce and Security are awesome! (Kudos on the Michael Rosenbaum look-a-like). Service is outstanding and the entertainers interact with the crowd and motivating dance instructors. Live music is always good! Fun things to do if dancing' isn't your thing.

We stopped in at Wildhorse on a Weds, a Thurs and a Sat. All three nights were pretty lame. Perhaps this club only lives up to its name when there is a concert there.

Nobody knows how to dance anymore -- ""line dancing"" is for those who can't dance. It's OK for once in a while but for the entire 4 hours that I was there on a Saturday Nite (12/21/02) there was not one 2 Step, Country Waltz or even swing. Just boring line dance after boring line dance. I asked a couple of ladys to 2 Step -- they said they didn't know how. I visit my son in Nashville twice a year and finally got to go to the famous ""Wildhorse Saloon"" and other than the food, service & atmosphere which was great, the Dancing (if you could call it that) really STUNK. We tried several of the other Clubs - Tootsie's, etc. - same story - no dancing. Can you tell me--are there any places left in Nashville that offers real Country Western Dancing?

Im sorry but this is going to be a bad review folks. If you want to just draw the tourist only instead of a steady clientele you are doing a good job they dont' know what they are paying for at the door. I remember when the Wild Horse opened and we we made the hour drive never got the service a customer deserves. In the last few years the only time I would even attempt to go is if a friend from out of town was in and wanted to go. My sister's were in a few weeks ago and we wanted to eat dinner there etc. First you have to pay 6 bucks just to have the privilege to sit and eat and get bad service. We opted to go somewhere more deserving. The paper machete horses are the best things there.

The band was good. The dancing was fun to watch. The building is very nice. That's about all I can say that is pleasant.... The only good service experience we had was when we were carded when we walked in the door. The bouncer was very friendly. It stopped there. We sat at our table for 40 minutes watching many waitresses ignore us before finally snagging one to be told that the kitchen was closed - AND THEN SHE WALKED AWAY - never even asked if we wanted a simple glass of water or a drink Never saw her again. We stayed only because my friend was enjoying watching and occasionally participating. I'm glad I can say that I went, but I will never go again

We looked forward to go to THE wildhorse saloon.\nThere is no NON-SMOKING section. This is totally unacceptable. We and a lot of other people we know will not be returning until they have a non-smoking section.\nThe ""hostess"" was rude and arrogant.
