Reliant Realty ERA Powered Team – Wednesday November 8, 2017
The only time to eat diet food is while you're waiting for the steak to cook — Julia Child
You’re on the run, in-between meetings, trying to figure out where you can sit down to enjoy a delicious meal before you have to head off again. Luckily, Nashville is not short on options to please your taste buds.
Steakhouses are one of the top restaurant choices in Nashville.
In fact, there are well over a dozen steakhouses in the city known for having excellent food and service.
This list will give you a head start by covering the 7 absolute best steakhouses in the area.
1. Kayne Prime Steakhouse
1103 McGavock St, Nashville, TN 37203, USA
Kayne Prime Steakhouse is the best ranking steakhouse in all of Nashville, and it’s ranked #12 out of all of the city’s restaurants. If that doesn’t convince you to stop in and give it a taste, you may be tempted by their in-house cotton candy bacon, popcorn buttered lobster, cold water oysters, or one of the many other delicious dinner treats on the extensive – and delicious – menu.
The bar is also an enjoyable place to sit, but be sure to grab a reservation if you’re arriving during the peak dinner times.

2. Bob’s Steak & Chop House
250 5th Ave S, Nashville, TN 37203, USA
Bob has outdone himself in preparing a steakhouse menu that also features filet, skillet potatoes, and lobster bisque. They’re #40 on the list of restaurants in Nashville, and they’re worth dropping in to see for yourself.
[My wife and I] split the apple crumble for dessert. It was very good and more than enough for the two of us. The wine list was extensive. Our service could not have been better.” – Vernon H, TripAdvisor
The dress code here is business casual to formal, so you won’t have any issue fitting in no matter what time of day it is.

3. Jeff Ruby’s Steakhouse
300 4th Ave N, Nashville, TN 37219, USA
Number 42 on the list of Nashville’s best restaurants, you’ll know exactly why once you walk through the doors and are greeted by the friendly and attentive staff. You’ll be convinced once you’re seated and order any of their delicious dishes. In addition to steak, they are known for their ricotta donuts, sushi, and fillet. They get incredible ratings for food and service, although it’s yet another high-priced restaurant on the list (but to be honest, they’re all considered “$$$$” by Trip Advisor).
They also have private rooms for large groups in case you need some meeting space for a corporate event.

4. Old Hickory Steakhouse
2800 Opryland Dr, Nashville, TN 37214, USA
If you’re looking for a unique and memorable dining option, head to the Gaylord Opryland Resort and go straight to 2800 Opryland Drive. That’s where you’ll find the Old Hickory Steakhouse, known not only for their steak but also for lobster, filet, and their great cheese trays.
The service was as good as it gets. My special thanks to our server, Tony. He didn't miss a beat, provided valuable advice, and treated us like VIP's the entire dinner. Every aspect of dinner was great.” – MikeFM, TripAdvisor
They have a dedicated dining area along with a lounge for those who have more time on their hands.

5. Stoney River Steakhouse and Grill
3015 West End Ave, Nashville, TN 37203, USA
Ranked #83 out of nearly 2000 restaurants in Nashville, Stoney River is a favorite amongst travelers and locals. Located at 3015 West End Avenue, it’s right down the round from Ruth’s Chris but has them beat on a couple dishes. They’re also slightly more favored for their incredible atmosphere.
On the menu, you’ll find a full list of brunch and dinner options along with a stock of beverages. The bar also has plenty of television options if you’d like to take a short break. It’s in the cleanest part of the city, right near the main strip so you’ll also have shopping options around if you’ve got the time.

6. Ruth’s Chris Steak House
Loews Vanderbilt Plaza, 2100 West End Ave, Nashville, TN 37203, USA
Heading out? If you’re going to be anywhere near 2100 W End Avenue, this is the place to grab lunch or dinner. Their menu includes burgers, salads, and twists on the classic along with, of course, an excellent steak dinner. You can get their shrimp, mushrooms, or crab if you’re looking for an alternative, or grab a plate of pasta.
If you’ve got time for a night cap, their bar is also considered one of the best in the area with friendly, fast, and attentive service. Again, expect to pay the price for quality deliciousness.
7. Jimmy Kelly’s Steakhouse
217 Louise Ave, Nashville, TN 37203, USA
Jimmy Kelly’s Steakhouse is among the best of the best. It’s ranked in the Top 200 among Trip Advisor’s list of the best restaurants in Nashville (a list including nearly 2000 restaurants, from ice cream shops to bars).
Housed in an old mansion just a mile west of the downtown business district. Valet parking at the door. They are known for steaks and great service, and they delivered on both of those. – 1TNtraveler, Trip Advisor
It’s on the pricey side, but it’s well worth what you’re going to pay. Their inclusive menu not only includes their favorite steak that will get your mouth watering, they also prepare delicious sides, burger, and lamb rack.
The service is exceptional, and so is the food.
