$31 to $50
Contemporary American
Earnest Bar & Hideaway: a relaxed restaurant and refined tavern serving comfort food classics & craft cocktails inspired by Ernest Hemingway in rustic-chic surrounds.
Reasonably priced entrees like the 32oz. Bone Ribeye and Grilled Pork Chop. However, the Korean Fried Chicken has already established itself as a Earnest Bar & Hideaway classic. Saturday & Sunday brunch is 10:00AM - 2:30PM! Don’t miss out on the Ribeye French Dip sandwich, Breakfast Poutine, Hot Chicken & Mac! Wash it all down with a bottle of bubbles.
The half bottle of champagne is the enemy of man -EH
Come join us for fare and libations!
Cheers!

    We were looking for a “brunch” restaurant. The food we chose was excellent, however the options are fairly limited. We had hoped for some fun coffee drinks, but they only offer drip. We weren’t interested in the alcoholic drinks, so that was unfortunate. The hot chicken on macaroni and cheese was superb, but not for a sensitive tummy. We were crying. 😋

    Food was wonderful. Generous portions. I had the Korean fried chicken. Alex attentive and was there when we needed him - has great Phone taking photo skills! We would go back. Parking is either in a pay for parking lot or on street - although spots very limited.

    Visiting from Scottsdale Arizona and we were so thrilled to get a reservation here. The food is fabulous, the atmosphere cozy and the service was on-point. She answered all our questions and gave the perfect recommendations. You MUST order the grits and the tuna crudo … absolute heaven. And the kale salad was so fresh. Husband raved about the petite filet. Go here asap!!!

    Real good value for the price - especially at brunch !!! Food and service were great !! Fairly high noise level with bachelorette and bachelor parties at adjacent tables (but it’s Nashville, what can you do).

    Service was outstanding. Across the 4 or us we had 2 different appetizers, 3 different meals and 2 different desserts. All of them except the Korean Fried Chicken tasted very good!! The fried chicken however was bland and would not recommend that dish. Overall pleasantly surprised about how great this restaurant was. We went on a whim because it was nearby. Probably in the top two restaurants we visited in Nashville.

    Great service and excellent food. Wife and I met son and girlfriend for brunch. Alex was our super fantastic server.All the food items, heuvos rancheros, bacon and eggs, breakfast potatoes and the French toast were all great. The mimosas were a big hit, too. We’ll be back.

    We found this place on a Sunday while we were looking for a place to go for brunch, and then we absolutely fell in love with the vibe. They have a super fun staff and a great menu with an excellent bar as well. We have returned multiple times in the last few months and are always pleased with the experience.

    Wow! What a cool place! Great atmosphere, lively energy without being too loud. We visited on Saturday night, August 6. Parker was our waiter and he was fantastic! Offered great suggestions on drinks and dinner. We ordered the filet and it was probably one of the best steaks we've ever had. If this is your first visit, do NOT miss the beet salad with goat cheese!!

    We intentionally sat near a window for less noise as this was a business dinner. It was a relatively quiet evening since we started early. The ambience is so wonderful - feels like you are in an old European hideaway. The Brussel sprouts are over the top delicious as was the red snapper. I’ve also found the cocktails to be exceptional. I requested a very spicy margarita with foam…and i got it! thanks Earnest’s!
