Contemporary American
Earnest Bar & Hideaway: a relaxed restaurant and refined tavern serving comfort food classics & craft cocktails inspired by Ernest Hemingway in rustic-chic surrounds.
Reasonably priced entrees like the 32oz. Bone Ribeye and Grilled Pork Chop. However, the Korean Fried Chicken has already established itself as a Earnest Bar & Hideaway classic. Saturday & Sunday brunch is 10:00AM - 2:30PM! Don’t miss out on the Ribeye French Dip sandwich, Breakfast Poutine, Hot Chicken & Mac! Wash it all down with Bottomless Mimosas.
The half bottle of champagne is the enemy of man -EH
Come join us for fare and libations!
Cheers!

    I've been here before for brunch in the winter of last year. it was delicious then and remained the same this time! I also loved the "not bottomless mimosas". you literally get a whole bottle of champagne to yourself (if you roll like that) for $21, plus getting the food, makes a total of maybe almost $50! I think the vibe is great and it's nice and chill local bar here in Nashville! Our waiter was super sweet and checked on us frequently. Good times!

    From beginning to end it was a really fun experience. Love the space, the location, and the vibe! Our server Parker was off the charts fun. He got us immediately. He created a well balanced dining experience. We asked him to just build our charcuterie board which did not disappoint. His entre suggestions were on point. Cocktails were creative and yum, desert we did not need, but oh so good. Thank you Parker and Chef!

    Reservations was for 2pm, had no idea dinner wasn’t served until 5pm. My 10 person dinner party had to settle for brunch food. No where on your web site or anywhere else was a dinner time mentioned. It was a disappointing experience.

    Food was delicious and served on tempo well. We were never sitting for more than a couple of minutes without food or drink. Menu is compact, which in this case isn't a bad thing. Server was knowledgeable and prompt. Would definitely revisit again in the future.

    Went with a girlfriend for Happy Hour and it did not disappoint. We'll definitely go back! The drinks took a bit but it was evident the bartenders took their time to make the drink well - so thank you for that! The vibe was fun, the interior is awesome, and I look forward to visiting again and trying something from the menu!

    Fun place! We came during the day during our trip to Nashville. I got the reuben and a cocktail, both of which I enjoyed. Not super pricey and in a cool areas with other places to walk to. The Hemingway vibe is also cool. Would come back!

    I typically go to Earnest Bar and Hideaway in the evenings for a drink. I wanted to try out the brunch but both my dad and myself were disappointed in the food and the drinks. I wouldn't recommend this for brunch, but still a good night happy hour place.

    We were there for Sunday brunch. The menu is very heavy with no healthy options. No vegetable or fruit options. The food was good, but not great. Our server was nice and helpful, but we waited a long time for our food and drinks. Maybe we need to try dinner, but I’m not sure we will be back. There are to many great restaurants in Nashville.

    Earnest has always been one of our favorites. However, The food quality and preparation has not been as good as in the past. I’m hoping this was just an off day and not a permanent change in customer experience. I do know that the chef recently left and Earnest may be in a transition time. I’m looking forward to them getting back to great food!

    Great ambiance and cocktail menu. Shrimp and Grits were well done but Disappointed in Octupus main entree. For the price there should have been double the protein. Overall, would go back for cocktail and bite vs full meal.
