The place has been around since the 30's. It has changed locations and has been in its present locale since the 80's. Nice greeting and super service from our waiter Ozzie. Walked us through all phases and took great care of us. Shared 4 apps and all were prepared well and served promptly. All entrees done very well and mixed grill afforded a nice sampling of surf and turf.
The food at Jimmy Kelly's is comparable to other steakhouses in Nashville, but the historic ambiance is what sets is apart from all of the others. Jimmy Kelly's is one of those traditional Nashville establishments that has upheld its standards and maintained a solid clientele for decades.
My husband and I were very impressed with the wine menu, and were pleased with our selection! The corn bread cakes are TO DIE FOR!! And Don happily kept them coming all evening! We shared the Blackened Catfish appetizer - it was remarkable! It literally melted in your mouth! The salads were very good as well! The greens were hearty, healthy, and full of color! My husband couldn't decide what to order, so he opted for the "Mixed Grill," which included a half-filet, two jumbo gulf shrimp, and salmon, all grilled to perfection. His steak was cooked exactly to order! I ordered the fish of the day, which was Atlantic Sea Bass stuffed with lobster and shrimp. I ordered it broiled without butter, and they honored my request. It tasted amazing!!! The portion was a bit small, but the huge taste more than made up for the size of the fish! All of the seafood was perfectly prepared -- not overcooked at all!
The food, service, and atmosphere were all superb! It is quite an expensive restaurant, but you are paying for perhaps one of highest quality restaurants in Nashville, so it is well worth it! Definitely the perfect place for a special night out!
Been going over 50 years. Love the potota cakes.Can't pass up the filet & lobster every time
From start to finish, this was a perfect evening. The service was excellent ! The manager greeted us at the door, then made sure that all was well throughout our dining experience! Our waiter was very professional and the food was delicious!! My steak was cooked perfectly and was carved at the table...fun! The charm of the old house was the "icing on the cake"! Definitely try this, you will love it!
Took son to Jimmy Kellys to celebrate end of college finals. The building has an old club type atmosphere with comfortable seating and lighting. The staff seemed very experienced and our waiter provided excellent service. My steak had a bit too much bleu cheese for my tastes, but the meat and sides were excellent and prepared precisely as ordered. It's always nice to find an independent local restaurant of this calibre.
Amazing!! Impeccable service. "King" Arthur treated us like royals. Awesome calamari, wonderful steaks, great wine selection. Cant way to go back!
