    I know why the turtle is thirsty, because of the slow waitstaff. I had to wait 15 minutes just to get something to drink. I then waited over an hour to get my meal. Don't waste your time or money.

    They seem to have a high turnover rate for the waitresses in here.

    2 for 1 drafts. The Cajun wings are the bomb.com even though they aren't on the menu.

    I tried the oysters and the buffalo shrimp... Both were AMAZING! The turtle nachos meh not my thing. Joesph (the bartender while we were there) was awesome and very helpful! I enjoyed it. =)

    It's Sunday, the start of happy hour and the bartender is the only waitress with 3 people at the bar and 5 active tables. Where is her help?

    Go during happy hour and sitting at the bar is a must. Otherwise you will experience everything you have read below.

    Easily the worst bar in nashville. Bad food, awful service, dirty bathroom. the servers don't know what is on the menu (and half of the menu items are misspelled). do not go here. Ever.

    They must have stress tested chairs if Lisa Turnbow can put all that big ass of hers in one of them! Her ass looks like two big bags of water mixed with pancake batter swingin' back and forth!

    This place LOOKED like a great new bar. Instead I got crappy service, weak drinks, and a crappy live band that was so loud I couldn't hear myself talk. Never going back.
