Bub City Ratings and Reviews
From the moment we walked in, it felt like we were in a bar in Nashville. we arrived early for our reservation and we seated immediately. at no point during our time there di it feel like the server was simply trying to flip the table and get us out the door.
The food was absolutely top shelf in regards to authentic flavoring. The Nashville hot chicken was not my first choice of items on the menu, but I am damn glad I went with it. full of flavor and stayed juicy. The Brussel Sprouts were outstanding as well. they had some mustardy dressing on them
and the Whiskey Bar is a perfect way to finish off that meal. Don't be cheap. treat yourself, and enjoy a cocktail.
We will be going back to Bub City.
This place is really good for party especially on Friday night. The music there makes you relax and energetic. I like the ribs and sausage there, especially the fried stuffed jalapeno, it's soooooooo good!!!
Oh, by the way, the women restroom's decoration is funny.
We came mostly for the build your own Bloody Mary bar, which did not disappoint. Our server was about as bad as they come, although she did get our food order right. The rest of the staff seemed very friendly and helpful, so maybe just caught her on a bad day.
This was my second visit, with friends, to BC.
Each visit the food and service have been exceptional. I have tried the Chicken, 18 hour Brisket, Ribs, Pulled Pork, Mac-N-Cheese, Wings and the amazing Sprouts.
The band that start around 9-9:30 have been pretty good as well.
Husband and I went for drinks, dinner and live music! We came early to have some drinks- stopped in at 8pm (reservations not until 930) the host told us she could get us sat early so just hang out at the bar- which was standing room early. We weren't able to be sat until nearly 10pm, so that was frustrating! Food was good- recommend the nachos! Band was good and great service!
Great atmosphere and had an awesome country band playing. I loved that they kept filling up my water throughout the night without even asking. We started with appetizers and wow were they huge! Someone could probably make a meal out them. The service was quick and we were constantly taken care of...our server was always making sure we had what we needed. We had a great time. We are definitely going to be going back.
We went for Saturday brunch. Place was busy, but the build your own Bloody Mary made up for it. We ordered the food to share between two of us and had more than enough to eat. Pulled pork sandwich, brisket nachos, and bacon Mac&Cheese was served within 10 minutes of ordering it. Would definitely go again!
I went for Restaurant week so I was disappointed they had run out of the brisket option but they did substitute a pulled pork option. The salad was huge! It was very busy so felt crowded seated at a high top table for my dinner reservations. Constantly getting hit by purses and bags when people walked by and ducked my head for waitstaff carrying trays. We were seated by the bar. It was loud.
The food was excellent. Interesting and good selections on menu. Prices were reasonable for downtown. Our server was friendly and fast, but didn't rush us out once we were done eating. The only negative part of the night was the location of our table as my chair was kicked at least thirty times and that was annoying.
