Pub 5 Ratings and Reviews

Restaurant was much smaller than what looked like in the pix we found online (didn't have any pix on their site). Exposed brick atmosphere, which was very pretty. But, was thrown off when our table for 4 was at a table that in most restaurants would be only large enough for a table for 2. Food was decent, but unexpectedly spicy (i.e.mashed potatoes/green beans). Definitely a trendy, hipster restaurant.

Recommended by a native during our visit to town. Great local beer on tap with a good variety. Really great food with a lot of lite to heavy options, everything from amazing salads to a nice burger. We had tacos, which were excellent. Local beer on tap -- and a variety from light to heavy -- was a real plus. Reasonably priced, and a great value. This is a small, very intimate place. Seating only feels crowded but you have lots of room. Given the size of the place, it was very easy to hear and carry on a conversation. A very nice date place, well located to downtown attractions (we went there before a show at the Ryman.)

My wife and I where in Nashville celebrating our 35th anniversary and my wife's birthday. We where going to the Ryman that night so stopped in for dinner before. Great choice. The waitress was attentive without being intrusive. She made several suggestions which we took and they turned out to be wonderful. We shared the mussels done in garlic and white wine. Delicious. For dinner my wife had the crispy shrimp tacos. Wow. I had the seafood pasta with salmon, scallops, shrimp and mussels in a cream sauce. Double wow! I also has a draft beer, sorry two, that I can't remember the name of but it was something Peanut butter which tasted similar to a Guinness. Great food, great service, great atmosphere. We'll be back next time we're in Nashville.

Our server started an excellent evening. Stephanie was knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. The food was excellent across the board. Nice ambiance and not so loud that you have a hard time talking. Strong recommendation.

I would not list this as a restaurant, it is a low class bar. We left after being seated and found a great place around the corner. We did come back to watch a sports game that evening, because we were in the area and the game was just ending.

The Warm Goat Cheese appetizer was delightful! The fried chicken with green beans and mashed potatoes was delish!Didn't like the table we were at...3rd floor, right by the bar, stairs, bathroom and only entrance to the dining area. I would eliminate that table. Otherwise, all was well.

Visiting Nashville with the family and met up with additional family and friends. We were seated up on the rooftop and it was great. Server was a little overwhelmed, but it wasn't her fault since she was the only one! We all enjoyed it!

We were told we could sit up on roof or downstairs because our reservation was early. We were told roof top was great. It was small and it did not extend to edge so you could see the sky line but not the street. My fish and chips were very tasty. Lots of fries and the tartar sauce had a kick from jalapeños. Husband had fried chicken. He said it was good but not great. For what we paid he felt it should have been better.

Pub 5 was adequate to mediocre. We arrived for our reservation early and were seated right away. Clearly there were some issues with the kitchen because we ordered our meal and specified to bring the appetizers first followed by salads and then the mains. The appetizers and salads all came at once creating the awkward rearranging of a too crowded table. The waitress apologized and said she told the kitchen to stagger but that didn't happen. The corn fritters were basically fried cornbread balls and quite delicious. Hummus plate was basic. Our mains came before all our salads were done and they weren't hot. One dish had to be sent back because it was wasn't even warm to touch. The waitress was very kind and apologetic and did remove the dish from the bill. The plate that was returned to the kitchen came back with the sweet potato fries over done since they were thrown back into the fryer to heat up instead of a new batch made and the burger was still very rare. The food that had no problems was quite good-the fried chicken was done perfectly and the green beans were cooked perfectly. The kale and arugula salads were simple but good. It might have been a bad night and our one waitress was polite but most of the staff seemed slightly apathetic. There are a lot of good restaurants in Nashville I would try before returning to Pub 5.

Great food, nice waitstaff, but ridiculous policy of not splitting checks means I won't return. We had a lot of strangers dining together during a conference, suddenly digging for cash and change instead of our cards to split a check because the manager won't allow individual checks. Nope.

This wasn't my first time here, and, generally, I have a nice experience, but this was a bad one. Terrible service. Server never put it on our starter and didn't check on us. Brought our food, put it in the table and quickly left. At one point I went looking for the server so I could get condiments for my burger.

We were hungry; passed by Pub 5; checked the reviews on Open Table and decided to try it. We were all pleasantly surprised. Food was excellent. Interesting salads--added chicken to a quinoa salad and also to a kale salad--both were tasty and filling. Nice selection of beers on tap.

We had a good meal at Pub 5, but for what we paid, we thought we could have definitely had a better meal elsewhere. My husband's filet was a little overcooked and my seafood pasta but just okay.
The service was quick and very attentive. We went at 6pm so the restaurant was a bit empty. We did have a chance to go to the rooftop for a drink and dessert, which was nice.

Everything was SO great! We had Dean as our server! He's the best, extremely personable and REAL! Ask for him if you go!
Food was delicious! We got a mixture of all their tacos, highly recommend!
Atmosphere was fun, yet quaint!
All around GREAT experience! Definitely going back!

Very disappointed in our latest visit to Pub 5. The first floor has smelled funny the last two times we've visited. We've been there several times, but the service was very unsatisfactory this time. The upstairs bartender was rude to my friend, telling her (not asking politely) she'd need to move so he could get to other tables. We weren't the ones who created the tight space by trying to overseat the second floor dining area. Drinks (gin and tonic) were very light on the tonic. We had to ask repeatedly for basic condiments. The one positive is the food -- it was excellent as usual. We'll probably return if going to a Bridgestone event, but will not highly recommend to others as we have in the past or make a special trip to eat there.

The music from the speakers was too loud so it was not easy to have a conversation even though there were just four of us (on the patio) at a small table. Service could have been better. Food was OK, but I would have preferred a better selection of more healthy food.
