We took the kids to Dick's last resort in Gatlinburg and had an absolute blast. I guess our expectations were the same this time in Nashville.

What a flop.

With over 1700 other restaurants in Nashville we could have found something better, I guarantee it.

We went on a Wednesday night and waited for 25 minutes. I realize we are a family of six and we definitely are used to waiting for a larger group, but 3/4 of the tables were empty. You would think we could at least be sat down at one of the many empty tables.... Not so much. 25 minutes isn't long to wait at a restaurant downtown, but when the joint is empty...

Then add another hour plus until we saw our food. A salad, cheeseburger, chicken wings, grilled cheese, and a half rack of ribs that came out cold and fries that were soggy and cold. What a disappointment. I will say they made it right by bringing a new rack of ribs and fresh fries. I have to wonder why the first rack that was cold took over an hour to make it to my table and the replacement only took five minutes?! Impressive. After such a long wait and an order that came out less than satisfactory. I will say our waitress did the best she could... It seems like management dropped the ball and under staffed this spring break week night in a big way. Back home we can people in to work, does that happen in Tennessee?

And for the trademark hats.... We had to ask for them and even then we (mom and dad) didn't get one? Hats are half the fun along with the atmosphere. We are just a family of six that isn't very hard to entertain and make happy and Dick's last resort should have been a home run to satisfy that list.

Went here for dinner with a bachelorette party of 6 and had such a fun time! None of us had been there before but we laughed so much, especially at our hats. Just so you know even though the wait staff is sarcasic and sassy it was all in good fun and not mean at all. If you have a good sense of humor id definitely recommend, the food wasn't anything special but the atmosphere was worth it

Great place for lots of laughs but you best be in the humor for it. We love the laughs, our waiter was a great sport and the drinks were awesome.

A revisit here while in town. Another great eating experience, it is all about atmosphere when you enter. Waitresses are crude and fun loving, always a hoot. Fun had, nothing personal, just part of eating here. Great choice on menus plus variety of beers. Fun had by all. Love the hats and sayings they write on them. Definitely worth a stop for great meal and fun.

This was my first time at a Dick's - I have always been reluctant because I am huge on customer service and a bit thin-skinned for the insults. We stopped in late after a show for a quick bite. Our waitress was cute as a button, and did offer the service with sass Dick's is known for. Thankfully our visit went without hats! The garlic ranch chicken wings were very good for a late night snack on our way back to the hotel.
