Pub 5 Ratings and Reviews

I have had many friends work here over the past couple years and continuously recommend Pub 5 to me, but I was very disappointed when I went in for dinner and drinks before a show at the Bridgestone last week with a friend. I will probably give it another try, just because I know people who worked there that rave about it.

Service and food were very disappointing. Staff seemed uninterested and standoffish. Food was sub par. My fiance ordered a filet medium, it came out well done. The second attempt was only a small improvement. My salad was so-so. The rooftop was a nice setting, but did not make up for the other deficiencies. I will not be back.

I booked this restaurant because it was close to all of our activities in Nashville and we liked the menu and the fact that it had rooftop dining. Plus, it could accommodate our group of 11. The food was okay and the service was okay. I had put in the notes when I booked that we were celebrating a 21st birthday and we would like to be on the rooftop. I mentioned this to the hostess when we arrived and she said the rooftop wasn't available. I booked 3 weeks in advance specifically asking for the rooftop. I mentioned to the server we were celebrating a 21st birthday. It was never acknowledged. He brought us the bill and I asked if they had a dessert or did anything special for the birthday girl and he said no. What restaurant doesn't have something for a birthday? I was disappointed by the lack of customer service in this area. Considering all of the other restaurant options in Nashville, I wouldn't recommend this place. Everything was very average and all of the other places we went after this were fun and vibrant, going above and beyond when we mentioned it was her 21st birthday.

My favorite place to eat before a show at the Ryman. Always great food with reasonable prices, and being able to make reservations helps to make sure that we are on time for our concert.

A group of 9 of us went to Pub5 for a bachelorette dinner. The restaurant itself is charming and easy to find - right in front of the Bridgestone Arena. The hostess was kind and accommodating and the space on the 2nd level was perfect for our larger group. Our waitress Jessica was FANTASTIC - she was helpful with food choices, delightfully funny, and even gave us suggestions for night life on Broadway. Dinner was delicious and the crispy shrimp tacos were a big hit with everyone at the table. Following dinner, we went up to the roof deck. The roof deck is quaint and has a nice view of the city. The staff at the roof deck was a little underwhelming compared to the service we had in the restaurant. Overall, a great experience and would recommend to a group looking for an easy, laid-back spot with yummy eats.
Great for a Large Party
The entire ambiance/decor of the restaurant was breathtaking and different. We had a great time celebrating with a large group and our service was quick.

Salmon was tasty and seasoned well, though the kale salad was a little dry. However, I did choose to get my dressing on the side, so that was on me-the dressing was tasty and the salad would have been better if I'd gotten it not on the side.

Party of 12. Had a private room. Andy was our server and he was great. Everyone raved about the food. All staff were friendly and accommodating. Menu offered something for everyone. Will definitely go back next time we are in Nashville

We called in the afternoon to push back our reservation, and were told it wasn't a problem....and when we got thete, they had no reservation. It took 10 minutes for the waitress to first come over. Service continued to be slow. When we asked for ketchup and mustard, it took another 10 minutes....and then we actually got ketchup and ranch dressing in a mustard bottle (it was even labelled Ranch). The food wasn't anything special, and the rooftop patio was too small to have "ambiance." This would be a good place to have drinks, but I wouldn't go back if I was hungry.

My favorite place to go before a Ryman event. Broad, unique, healthy menu choices to please a crowd. Fun and convenient.
Lower Broadway Dinner Spot
Went here after the marathon with a large group to celebrate a birthday. We were seated in the bar area which unfortunately was overly noisy. The food and service was good. Four of the group had fried chicken and thought it was the best they ever had. It was a nice, alternative to the Honky Tonks on lower Broadway.

We really enjoyed this restaurant! They were quick to seat us, the staff was super friendly, and the food was very good! I loved the goat cheese dip!! Prices were reasonable for a place so close to Broadway and portions were just right! We had 10 in our party and everyone was very happy!

The food is always good but there's never anyone to greet us when we arrive so we wait. After five minutes just standing on our last visit a server finally greeted us and tried to get us checked in when the hostess finally walked up. Once seated the service that is usually good was slower than usual. Let's just blame it on a busy day. The rooftop is great though.

As always! The staff at Pub 5 is amazing! They all seem to be very happy employees... They work together and make you truly feel at home! And the food never disappoints!
Interesting decor. Menu okay. Food okay. Overall disappointing.
Good food, good location
We were looking for a place to have dinner before a Ryman Auditorium concert, and found Pub 5 on TripAdvisor. We were very pleased with the food and service. Good craft beer list, and the salmon BLT was a big hit!
Great $ for Location
Great food and service. Great value for location. Highly recommended.

Lamb burger is excellent. Good for groups. Not good for people watching.
Ryan is a great server. There were six of us and he took good care of us. Everyone enjoyed their food.

We had a reservation for 530 for 8 people. We received a call before and confirmed it. We arrived on time. We were not acknowledged by what a appeared to be the manager at the front desk we was not busy with anyone else. A hostess did appear and tell us that out table was not yet ready. A few minutes later we were told the table was ready and we were taken upstairs and seated. The room was empty and we were there for an early dinner, so I'm not sure why the table would not have been ready for our reservation time. It was just frustrating to have all of us waiting at the front door entrance when we were on time. Other than that the food was great. We had the goat cheese as the reviews suggested and it was delicious. 3 of us ordered the filet and that was wonderful as well. Our server did a good job getting us drinks and everything else we needed.
Loved the food and ambiance
My family and I (both children are older than 30) made reservations and ate during the SEC Basketball Tournament last week at 4:30 in the afternoon. The wait staff were friendly and efficient; the food was excellent; and, the price was reasonable. We had a great experience. It was moderately loud but certainly no louder than any other place on Broadway that has a bar in it. I would highly recommend this.
Great for a big group
We had a great time. Some of the wait staff were unpleasant, but not all of them. Our party had water fall on them from the floor above because the table on the second floor split their water (seems like an easy fix), but they comped all of our appetizers, so that was nice. Great drinks, great food, and great overall environment.
Its All in the Details
Cocktails are fun and delicious. One option is to sit at the first floor bar and have food there which is a great way to spend some time if you don't have a reservation. Goat Cheese appetizer is a must. Dinning spaces are small and cozy with lots of character. Every food selection we made was delicious combined with the location, price and atmosphere this is one of my new favorite spots in Nashville.
IL Volo at the Ryman
Pub 5 has an eclectic menu with savory choices. The warm goat cheese with tomato bacon jam topping serve with warm bread was outstanding. Our server provided prompt, informative and energetic service the entire evening. It will be a place that we will visit again.
Good for eating before a Bridgestone Arena event
Poutine with lamb was very good. I've had other dishes here as well and been pleased. While not blown away by the service (tends on the slower side, but some waiters seem more attentive - just had a bad draw each time I suppose), it's a great place to get food right before going into Bridgestone Arena for an event. I've done this twice and it's not too busy to get a table and a quick bite. The rooftop dining has a great view for people watching.
The restaurant had a very cool vibe and the service was great! The menu was unique and had lots of choices. The food however was average. Would recommend for ambiance and service.
A group of 9 of us wanted to have diner before the Nashville Preds game and thought Pub 5 would be the perfect place. It was. We had a private room upstairs so we were able to hear each other easily. The eclectic menu offered something for everyone (including gluten free) at all price points. The service was great and of course the location was perfect, it being directly across the street from the Bridgestone Arena. A must try when in downtown Nashville.
Destination for Coworkers
Overall good experience with Pub 5. Service for 15 coworkers was provided. Although we had reservations and requested 3 tables upstairs, we had separate tables downstairs which limited conversation, but the staff provided good service and all were happy.
Great atmosphere, food was excellent. We had the goat cheese appetizer & seafood pasta. Would highly recommend both.
We were having trouble finding affordable restaurants in the area that could accommodate our needs/party in a pinch. We were so lucky to find this hidden gem. We quickly reserved a private room at no charge and were able to work with the reservation specialist and servers to get exactly what we needed. This was such a relaxed and beautiful dinner; pain-free! The servers were attentive and very nice. Food was great! All bottles of wine were $10 off! We have a picky group of people, but all I heard were rants and raves! Pub5 was definitely a win :)
Comfy pub with Music city charm
Loved the atmosphere and the whipped goat cheese with bacon. The best! Good service and great table upstairs overlooking arena. Great place for a snack or meal before a Preds game:) Will go back.
