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!

    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!

    Walked in to be informed they were out of shrimp, which is in at least 3 different items on the small menu. Ok, disappointing but no big deal. Then I try to order a drink off the menu and they have been out of one of the ingredients for it since Sunday. Okay…. Fine. Then, my boyfriend orders a beer. Not only did it not come for 15 minutes, but we were told after that time frame they were out of that beer too! So so ridiculous to not have multiple ingredients for such a small menu place. We have been here multiple times and have loved it, but this was just sorta ridiculous. Unsure when we will be back.

    Was really looking forward to this meal as the menu sounded great. Arrived on time and was seated promptly, however there were only 2 other tables that had people at them, so don't know if that counts for anything. Really cool ambiance. Our server was not very attentive for only 3-4 tables being waited on. My wife had the steak with chimichurri sauce, which was very tasty. Very small portion for $60. I had the barbeque chicken with mac and cheese and greens. The greens were great, but the chicken was very dry and had to order more BBQ sauce to get it down. I've made better mac and cheese in my instant pot. This was the only place in our three day Nashville stay that was not up to par. Maybe it was an off night, but this was our take on it. When we come back to Nashville, we'll look elsewhere.

    I've been here before for brunch in the winter of last year. it was delicious then and remained the same this time! I also loved the "not bottomless mimosas". you literally get a whole bottle of champagne to yourself (if you roll like that) for $21, plus getting the food, makes a total of maybe almost $50! I think the vibe is great and it's nice and chill local bar here in Nashville! Our waiter was super sweet and checked on us frequently. Good times!

    From beginning to end it was a really fun experience. Love the space, the location, and the vibe! Our server Parker was off the charts fun. He got us immediately. He created a well balanced dining experience. We asked him to just build our charcuterie board which did not disappoint. His entre suggestions were on point. Cocktails were creative and yum, desert we did not need, but oh so good. Thank you Parker and Chef!

    Reservations was for 2pm, had no idea dinner wasn’t served until 5pm. My 10 person dinner party had to settle for brunch food. No where on your web site or anywhere else was a dinner time mentioned. It was a disappointing experience.

    Food was delicious and served on tempo well. We were never sitting for more than a couple of minutes without food or drink. Menu is compact, which in this case isn't a bad thing. Server was knowledgeable and prompt. Would definitely revisit again in the future.

The drinks took a bit but it was evident the bartenders took their time to make the drink well - so thank you for that! The vibe was fun, the interior is awesome, and I look forward to visiting again and trying something from the menu!
