This is one of my favorite spots for an informal lunch when I am in the downtown area. I think the bread is the secret, then they make your sandwich to order and any way you like it. The people that work there have been there for some time and are always friendly and helpful. My favorite is the good ole roast beef dressed all the way. Cant wait to go back.

A great place. The owner, Sam, is a gentleman and a scholar, and the atmosphere is ideal. I wish they hadn't painted over the bathroom graffiti, which was always hilarious to read, but I understand why they did it. I have spent a lot of time (and plenty of $$) at this place, and was never disappointed. Long live JJ's!

It's fine -- way overhyped, however. The staff tends to have a lot of attitude, the wireless is spotty, the coffee is above-average. I like the food, which is pretty reasonably priced. The porch is lovely, notwithstanding the annoying loud hipsters who need EVERYONE to know how special they are. It can get waaaaaaaaaaay crowded, esp. with the guy who's always there taking up 2 tables doing his "art projects" (?!). Also, they have a bit of a fly problem--there are flies everywhere. It's weird and quite gross. It's a good place to go now and again; I just don't get what's so special about it. The one in East Nashville is a little quieter and more open, though they have a less expansive menu (last I checked).

My friends and I went to PM almost every Sunday afternoon and once a week at night. The sushi was EXCELLENT (some of the best I've had in Nashville) and I never experienced any snobby servers. So, it has been over a year since I've been.... Walking out the door now to get some food and decided to go there. I'll let you know how it turns out! :-)

So my girlfriend and I decided to dine at one of the "finer" establishments this evening here in Nashville. Needless to say, we ended up at Chappy's. We were promptly seated on a Friday night (which should have been a clue) in a cute and cozy room flanked with curtains. The server was initially nice and patient, as it usually takes my girlfriend and I awhile to decided on what we want to order. Chappy even came by our table and greeted us (as he traditionally does). Once we finally did order, the food was delivered promptly. I opted for the swordfish picatta and she had the sautéed shrimp and was quite pleased with her selection. I on the other hand minimally enjoyed the fish but resided to eat it anyway. Halfway through my meal, I noticed a clump of pepper… with LEGS!!! There was a bug in my food!!! When my girlfriend pointed it out to the waitress, she brushed it off as a gnat and took my plate away “before it grosses (me) you out” without my permission and without offering to replace my meal. She insisted that it was a flying gnat but I pointed out that it had NO WINGS and when I wafted at it, IT DID NOT FLY AWAY!!! Another lady then came to check in on us (she was the hostess) and offered some bread pudding ‘on the house’ as a form of compensation. Now tell me WHY ON EARTH would I want anything else from that kitchen??? And to top it all off, Tracy (our waitress) brought the ticket WITHOUT any adjustments… WOW, right??? I guess I don’t have to tell you…Chappy didn’t come back and check on us. Had we been the typical business man around here (hint, hint, wink, wink) I think this situation would have been handled differently… All this to say… AVOID THIS HIGH PRICED, LOW QUALITY PLACE!

The selection of foods on the lunch buffet is extensive, flavorful, and changes daily. The staff is polite and will offer helpful hints to the inexperienced. No doubt Woodlands is my favorite Indian restaurant in Nashville.

I think I only need to say this: I've thrown up on THREE separate occasions after eating the sushi at Ru San's. I'm to blame for going back after the first time. However, I will go on about an altercation I had with one of the owners when I simply wanted him to take a single item off our ticket that was not prepared correctly and because our fish was old and rubbery. My girlfriend and I ordered dinner: 2 sushi entrees and a handful of ala cart items. She'd ordered th "Godzilla Roll" - something that I had ordered every time I'd dinned here, probably totaling 15 visits over 2 years. My favorite roll, it is comprised of red snapper and macadamia nuts rolled in rice, flash fried and covered w/ a spicy aioli, then baked. I was very familiar with the food's preparation and character. My g'friend consumed ONE piece of the 5 presented on the plate, then followed with some ala cart items. She put the 2nd roll into her mouth and started chewing, but abruptly spit it out into her napkin. The fish was rubbery, like calamari. She asked me to check it out. One look at the dish and I could tell it hand't been prepared correctly. No flash frying and no baking - therefore, not prepared as advertised. In addition the raw fish was old and chewy. All in all, she ate one piece, spit the other in her napkin and I sample 1/2 of a 3rd. That's 2 1/2 pieces of the 5 on the plate (this comes into play in a second). Here saba nigiri (salmon) was also not at all fresh - she had to pick it up with her hand and pull on it to rip it with her teeth. Being very disappointed in the dish, I notified the server that we would like to request that he take that single item off our ticket ($8.95). He refused, saying that if we ate more than 1/2 of the dish that they do not offer refunds. After an exchange with him, I asked to see the Manager on Duty who in this case happened to be a part owner of the restaurant. He was very rude and matter of fact in point out that clearly marked on their menus is a return policy stating that if you ate more than half your dish, you could not get a refund. To avoid a heated exchange, I paid for the item. After paying, I checked the menu for the refund policy. Nowhere on the menus is this information he quoted printed - as a matter of fact, refunds are ONLY available for food that is NOT PREPARED CORRECTLY. Also, we touched exactly 1/2 and not more (if we want to go with a technicality). Upon leaving, I mention to the owner the lack of his claimed refund policy on the menu. I asked him why he lied to me - He replied with "We give NO refunds, no matter WHAT," thus contradicting even what WAS printed on their menu. Later that evening my girlfriend got sick from the food she ate. I ended up contesting the charge w/ American Express and had our total ticket refunded to me. In a nutshell - rotten food, rotten people, rotten restaurant.

I had read about Garden Brunch Cafe in The Scene when it first opened, and then a friend told me how great it was. It's been open for almost a year, and we just got around to going this morning, and I'm SO glad we did! I read the other reviews, and I really hope they will give this place a chance again. Maybe they've worked out a few kinks, because our experience was great and we will definitely be going back! First of all, they were the friendliest staff I've ever seen, and we got seated right away (although there were a few other groups there and it got busier while we were eating). The inside is really cool with an artsy vibe, which I love. The menu is nice and diverse. There's definitely something for the savory omelette lover, and also something for the carb freak (me). Ha! I had the peach pancakes. Holy cow, they were delicious! My husband had the Germantown Benny, and our friends had an omelette and strawberry pancakes. The coffee was nice and strong, everyone loved their meals, and the presentation was lovely. I will admit, the kitchen is a bit slow, but we were in no rush, so it didn't bother us. I definitely recommend this place, particularly in a town that is lacking an abundance of good brunch choices. We had a good experience and plan to go back.
