This place was right by the gate and it was lunchtime so where better to eat. The beer was good and the pulled pork sandwich was also good but the service stank. The waitress asked for my ID and then turned her back on me and never bothered to look at it. every time she mumbled at me I had... More

We stopped for a celebratory send off to end our trip to Nashville and wait for our flight - we ordered mojitos - and they were awful - tasteless and definitely not worth the $12 - even at airport prices - we asked if they were made correctly and no one seemed to know. The highlight was the Mac N... More

Thought I would give it a try due to a flight delay, well the menu is nothing special, not much of a selection and most of it is calorie loaded, gut busters. Ordered the Pulled Pork BBQ plate with green beans and Mac & Cheese. String beans were not cooked, or just barley blanched (hard and crunchy), BBQ Pork was... More

Went into bar waiting on flight and asked for a house merlot. The waiter said "No Problem" and brought me a glass of wine. After drinking it and preparing to depart, I get handed a 32.00 bill. When I queried the waiter, he said "we don't have a house merlot". I was livid. Of course, I begrudgingly paid the bill... More

With time to kill, we went to have a bite before traveling. The pork sliders were delicious and more than I could eat. Don't expect to be in a hurry, this place was slow. The food was above my expectations for airport food. Many of delta's gates were in the area, so this was a great location

After a busy day at a conference (no breakfast, no lunch) I stopped here at 5:10 with flight boarding at 5:45. The wait staff is used to serving people in a hurry. Menu has many choices, and the very courteous and efficient hard-working waiter (despite being grossly overworked during this dinner rush) cheerfully brought me a chicken Caesar salad. The... More

We stopped in and had 45 minutes until our plane was boarding. Pulled pork BBQ sandwiches sounded good and I told the waitress about our time crunch and she said it wouldn't be a problem if we were doing BBQ. (because it's already smoked and ready to go) We got our food in about 20 minutes and really enjoyed it.... More

I was pleasantly surprised at the food at the Tennessee Tavern at BNA (Nashville) airport. Even though the menu is small, it has a lot of good choices. The extremely pleasant waitress was more than willing to work with me on adapting the menu to my liking. I wanted lots of pulled pork, no bread and limited sides. She suggested... More

Food was fine. We ordered cheeseburgers which were as expected. Onion rings were excellent! It is the service which was beyond belief!. SLOW SLOW SLOW. Sit at the bar and not in the dining area if you want a chance of having good service. Otherwise expect to be ignored, have things forgotten, and have to beg to pay for your... More
