Opry City Stage Restaurant Review

About the restaurant: Are you a fan of the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville? If the perfect date night involves eating fried chicken and BBQ, ogling amazing costumes worn by country music legends, and listening to a live band, you’ve found your Times Square nirvana at Opry City Stage. The four-floor building where the restaurant is located fits well into the area with its gift shop on the first level and top-floor music venue. But the second floor is where the action is --- the bar section fills with theatergoers, tourists and people having an after-work drink, while the raised space where diners sit offers a view of the stage where bands play country favorites and the occasional couple tries out their two-step. If you don’t like country music, this place is definitely not for you. But if Alan Jackson and Kacey Musgraves are on your playlist, you’ll enjoy the spirit of the restaurant that offers continuous music and meals throughout the day.

Likes: This is a goodtime place with music playing all the time.
Dislikes: Definitely touristy although that's part of the Times Square appeal.

Food & Drinks: The menu is what you might expect to eat if you were in Nashville, meandering from fried green tomatoes, smoked ribs and hot chicken and waffles to healthier salmon and salads, all served with generous portions. Your Southern experience finishes at dessert with the likes of pecan pie, hummingbird cake with bananas and pecans, and Key lime pie. The wine list is essentially American with some selections veering off into international turf, but here you should definitely reach for a whisky, bourbon or one of the many beers offered.
