    Came here while on a bachelorette trip to Nashville. Was not pleased with the limited availability of drinks. The only non-alcoholic options were water, OJ, coke, diet coke and ginger ale. Was told they were switching management and the person in charge of ordering had not done so therefore pineapple juice and sprite were not available. Further, our waiter informed us that the kitchen does not do modifications to menu items. We simply asked for the Ainsworth burger without cheese, however it was delivered to the table with cheese still. There was a DJ playing music (we went for 12:00 on a Sunday) and the music was blaring, it was hard to have conversations with each other. Our waiter was super friendly and definitely made the experience better but I do not plan to return here in the future.

    The server was very good. Nice personality. I ordered the wings which were good. Hot and fresh. I ordered the steak and eggs which was terrible. The steak was supposed to be medium rare. It was burnt with no season or taste. I asked for scramble very soft eggs. They were hard like rocks with a slice of cheese on the top. My husband wanted french toast. The server told us there was no syrup. He said someone went to the store to buy some. Didn't know when they would be back. By the time the food came out, the person was back. All of the staff are very personable and nice.

    The waitress Mercedes was nice. However we had to wait a while for our bill. Several (at least 3) people came over and asked how this go were going I express that I didn’t like my sandwich and no one offered to have it remade or anything. The ambience was nice that’s it.

    The place is really cool and vibey inside with lots of cute backdrops for photos etc. I have heard they do great brunches but we went for a birthday dinner. The appetizers were the best part - Buffalo chicken dip was really good and the Mac n cheese bites were okay too. Drinks were all really good. However the service was incredibly slow, I think there was one server and one server training. There were not many other tables in the restaurant and they had a few bar guests. We would have ordered more drinks if our server had checked back more often. When our food arrived, 7/8 of the guests food was all cold like it had been sitting in the window for awhile. The only guest who didn’t have a complaint had ordered the $35 salmon - she said it was good, but wouldn’t pay $35 again for it. Everyone else got a burger or sandwich and everyone agreed the food was cold, extremely average for the price and wouldn’t come here just for the food. The au jus was the best part of my meal. We did get lots of cute photos, good drinks, and still had a good time but wouldn’t come here again hungry.. lol. I get it, Nashville is touristy and priced for tourists - but the overall taste and quality of the entrees were not worth the price. Maybe we’ll try for brunch next time.

    For the amount of food and drinks in which we both got i was expecting more but $119 not including tip for 2 drinks each, an app, and 2 burgers. Thats pretty inexpensive. On top of that there were ppl playing music, the staff was super kind and attentive. Liz and Lillian were exceptional. We will be back.

    The Ainsworth was cute but the hype was not the best for dinner I would say. We felt extremely warm like there was no airflow, the waitress was sweet but since she was new we barely got checked on throughout the night. I would go back for brunch but would not highly recommend for dinner.

    The restaurant itself is beautiful. Very picturesque . Lots of Instagram walls , to take photos. We were there and sat at a table for 10 people? There were plenty of empty booths. In fact the restaurant was quite empty! Our server was friendly, our drinks came to the table one at a time. The menu is " road house " . It doesn't quite match the decor. The food was simple , wings mac n cheese bites etc. Pub food. We chose not to eat there after our apps came out. Not spectacular at all. My feeling is they need a new chef or a menu consultant. Now we understand when we were asked where we had plans for dinner by locals they said to skip it. I like to make my own judgements. It was just ok. If you like pub food, go for it!

    What could be a great Live Music venue that has a great sound system, is ruined by the fact that they desperately need someone who can run sound (amazing they can’t find someone in this town). I would bet big money that their person running sound has one of those cars you can feel every bass note pounding out of at stop lights. When you have a Songwriter Round, you want to be able to clearly hear the voices and the words they are singing. The sound system was set perfectly for a Dance Club, not a Writers Round.
