    Try the Farm Burger: country ham, bacon, egg and maple mustard. OMG YUM!

    This is the best place to take your parents to convince them you're not living in the ghetto.

    With a solid selection of wursts, a rotating selection of beers on tap, old-school house-made sodas and floats and a great outdoor space, The Pharmacy does it right. [Eater 18 Member]

    Farm burger is a meat lover's dream! Beef, bacon, ham, AND a fried egg. Get it with cheese, grilled onions, and TOTS! Amazing tots.

    While excavating the space (originally a daycare center), old pharmacy bottles were found. The place was named accordingly, based on the idea that you "leave feeling better than you did upon arrival."

    This is going to be the coolest place in East Nashville. Soda shop, burgers and German beers on tap.

    Cool place/great burger-not the best burger "the Belmont grill" in Memphis still holds my heart as the best burger in the world!!!!!

    Their milkshake brings all the boys to the yard. And they're like better than yours because they use locally sourced ice cream.

    The Pharmacy burger is amazing, so are the sweet potato fries! You have to try it!

    Food is great ( farm burger) but if you sit outside, get ready to be swarmed by flies. Citronella candle would be really nice but that night take away the hipster vibe

    Derek Bruner · May 19, 2012
  • Carolyn S.

    What's up with jillions of open tables and a one hour wait? This place needs a logistics manager.

    Carolyn Schott · April 7, 2012

    There's nothing wrong with layering a few tots and a bit of ketchup on the stroganoff burger. Adds a crunchy surprise.

    Kimble Bosworth · February 17, 2012

    The falafel burger tastes like a gyro. With goat cheese.

    Jessy · February 11, 2012

    The burgers are beyond amazing. Best I've ever had! Beer great too! Great selection on tap!

  • Joshua R.

    Some of the best burgers, beer, milkshakes, and more you will find in Nashville. Great atmosphere, usually good service. Show up early, the wait can be long.

    Adding shredded lettuce will cost you $.75!

    Just had the Chorizo burger and it was awesome. Not sure how often they have it available, because it was a special, but get it if they have it. You will love it!!!

    Homemade buns! Great atmosphere...enjoy a great Nashville night and sit outside on the picnic benches! Burgers are the bomb!

    Service can be hit or miss here. Remember it's a burger joint, not a steakhouse. Always order the farm burger and always get sweet potato fries.

    Peter G McDermott · October 28, 2012
  • Lora M.

    Do NOT come here if you are in a hurry! The food is good but the seating and service are slow.

    Lora Manson · May 25, 2012
  • Cyndie T.

    If ther's a wait, check the outside of the bar. If there's seating, you'll get served lickety-split!

    Ask for Jack Wu - he's the man.

    Nothing on the food menu is vegan. Don't fool yourself.

    Hoping they'll eventually get some Stiegl Lager. I can't find it in Nashville!

    Add Muenster to the farm burger. If you're gonna ever have a soda, this is where to do it. Avoid the "German potato salad." Regular fries > sweet potato fries. Bring loud friends to compete with crowd

    Tyler Coe · August 12, 2014

    Mmmmm delicious specialty burgers.

    The falafel burger is on point

    An Old School Soda Shop with a design of a modern day beer garden, The Pharmacy delivers the best of both worlds.

    Order the Chance-Wacker

  • Derek S.

    All the hipster employees are constantly opening the back door which let's in freezing cold draft literally every 60 seconds max. Cliffs: don't sit in tables/bar near back door
