The Flying Saucer has taken a turn for the worse over the past months. For years The Saucer has been one of the best bars in Nashville for beer lovers although either due to management or policy changes it's really turned into just another chain. Indifferent, slow service. Rude doorman taking your cover charge. You read correctly, there's a cover charge to enter a bar! This isn't LA, it's Nashville. This is just a bar! Did I mention that you pay to park? There is a discount from The Saucer but don't expect change from the parking pay machine. Half of the time you get ripped off. This city is full of cool bars so my advise is to find a non chain and really see what Nashville has to offer.

Many people go to Firefly for great food served in an unpretentious, relaxed atmosphere. We are no different. They have a fantastic chef and the menu is always interesting. Firefly is a must visit when we have out of town guests. There is a worrying trend happing over the past few visits. Waitstaff that would be unsuited to work at Shoney's! During our last visit with friends from overseas the waiter was wearing camouflage, mumbled ( a lip full of Skoal? ) from a menu that he obviously knew nothing about and served 2 our of 4 entrees that were wrong. Add reaching across our faces to take the dirty dishes away and never filling the water glasses and it was an embarrassing outing to a restaurant that we raved about. It's a shame to see the FIrefly tradition turn into this. Great food with terrible service equals mediocre restaurant.
