Unpredictable Writers Club 9/14/2010

The French Quarter is a very unpredictable club. It is also located in a rough part of Nashville. Being off the music path, the owners would be far better to stick with country and writers nights to build a solid client/customer base. I have been there many times and the crowd is very small, usually a lot of the stranger styles of music in Nashville go there, because they are given a venue there. I saw very few people buy drinks so I know they can't be making much money off that. The sound is great! They have one of the better systems in town yet not the music or writers to fill the bill. Owners definetly need to re-think their management goals.....if they want to be known as a good club for Musicians. I play at many places and this one would not be on top of my list due to the consistency of the attendees. James Westborn has performed on various TV shows including American Bandstand, TNN's Be A Star, and other venues. more

Call Metro Health Dept! 4/6/2010

Nasty bathroom...service and attitude worse than a truckstop in hell. I went to see my girl sing, and we ain't going back. I didn't order any food, cause after visiting the bathroom, I had lost my appetite. I said something to the person in charge and he threatened to kick my ass and throw me out. I told a friend of mine about the incident, and he told me the owner (Dennis LeCouer) used to have a music store downtown. The scoop on the store was that your car or van would get broken into while being parked outside, your stuff stolen, then it would show up in his store for sale a few weeks later. Musicians stopped going there, and he went into the bar business after the store flopped. Now he's a club owner with a basement full of stolen gear he sells on ebay. What a guy! I'll NEVER go back, and he needs to get an inspection from METRO HEALTH DEPT. of Davidson County. Pros: Nice road out front to drive away Cons: FIlthy bathrooms Arrogant owner more

Why would he overcharge my card? 3/31/2010

I went to this club several times but will never go back. The very last time my credit card was used, I was not very happy when I got the statement. The amount charged to my card the night I was there and the amount on my statement were very different. When I called to ask about it, the owner was very rude, arrogant and very abrasive. My bank straightened it out but I will never go back. If you go, keep your card in your wallet and take cash. Pros: None Cons: List is too long more

French Quarter-my two cents 3/29/2010

Good grief,,,I went to see a popular band at this place I'd never been. It was a horrible experience. Avoid this place like the plague. I love this band for the nostalgic trip it gives me, but the sound was horrible and the service was the worst. Pros: filthy floor-arrogant help Cons: overpriced and horrible food more

Get out the pepto bismol 12/15/2009

I went to see a friend play in this joint. It was nasty, dark and dank. It took forever to get service and siverware of all things. I ordered some shrimp (big mistake) and fries. The owner runs the sound board and the sound was horrible. I left after the owner started swearing at the band. By the time I got home, I had the runs...up all night. I'd sue him, except it looks like he doesn't have a pot to piss in. Pros: Easy to drive away from Cons: The owner is a con more

Nashville's most under rated LIVE music venue...Great food as well...... 11/3/2007

Ok folks, this is one of the HOTTEST venues for live music in Nashville!! I can't believe this place! The acoustics are AMAZING!! Over the past few months I've been there 3-4 times to see some freinds of mine play, The Jon Grisham Band. If you have not seen these guys, you are missing out.....and Dennis, the owner who is also the sound man, makes them sound even better with his professional sound board work!! The ambience is great with dim mood lighting and the menu is worth a try as well. If you want authentic cajun food without having to travel to Louisiana or the Mississippi Delta, you need to get your butt down to The French Quarter Cafe and check this place out. It's a restraunt so all ages are welcome. On some live music nights there is a small cover charge but it's WELL worth the minimal fee to enjoy some of Nashville's finest live music and great food too! HIGHLY RECCOMENDED!!!! GREAT job Dennis!!!! Keep up the good work!!!! Pros: Great live music, acoustis are amazing, awesome food, good service Cons: parking more

First time back in awhile had a great time 10/19/2007

I was there on a Friday night and had a great time! I had not been there in some time and was really surprised at the great service and food. The band was excellent well I'll say bands it was a Bellmont Univ. writtters night and all where very good. Our server was a really nice young girl whom I complimeted on the bar and her service she told me that there was some changes being made and that there was a new manager there to help put all in place, she also infrmed me that there was going to be a grand re-opening soon and invited me to go to their web site and sign up so I will receive an invitation. Overall very relaxed and enjoyable. more

Never Open during posted hours-Food OUTRAGEOUSLY priced 9/21/2007

I have gone there several times thinking maybe daylight savngs time didnt exist in their world...but when the sign says we open at 5 pm and its 6:30 , 7:15, 7:45 then you have to wonder what the hell time do they open....??? I went by there the other night and some guy was on a cell phone trying to do business with the owner and they were closed and the owner couldnt be found....what a way to do business......Everyone says the food is over priced, IT IS and its rarely all that good.I have enjoyed the music but after 3 tries and they cant be open within 3 hours of their posted time then I'm OUT...way too many clubs on 12th ave over near green hills that open on time EVERYTIME , have good music and decent food prices also the last time I was there a bouncer (maybe the owner) was giving a band a hard time also and the band much for character Pros: Good Music Cons: Never open on time, rough neighborhood, rude employees more

Avoid going to this place 9/3/2007

I went to this restaurant a couple weeks ago. The service was not good, but there was this good band on stage. After they went through there first song the owner was yelling at the bands guitarist and harassed him on the PA system . A couple of my friends got a big bill for beverages and food. I recommend that no one go to this place. It gave me no joy to go to. more

worst service, worst food, and to high priced for what you get 3/28/2007

we visited this place around 7:45 last night to have dinner, there was a band playing so there was a 7.00 cover charge. we paid to get in but couldnt even get up front to see the band so we sat behind the bar, service was very slow, it took us asking someone after 15 for menus to even get one then another 10 to even get to order, silverware was never brought to us until we ask. try to order chicken ques for app and they were out of chicken for that, then we ordered, chicken was dry when food was brought to table they had CONDIMENTS, no ketcup or anything and I had fries with my dinners it said all dinners came with bread, never got that then after we finished eating and trying to relax and finish our drink we were told that at 9:00pm we would have to leave and pay another 7.00 to get in again the a lady came to us and said have you got ur check yet because we need you to leave if you have........NEVER AGAIN WILL I GO TO THIS PLACE AGAIN Pros: THE BAND WAS THE ONLY PRO more

never judge a restaurant by the first visit 2/22/2005

The first time my wife and I went to the French Quarter we were not that impressed, the food was good but the service was not up to par,that was 3 or 4 years ago we recently tried it again and man what a difference. They have done a great job not only on service but the music & food were outstanding too I noticed a lot of interior improvements every nite when we pass by we see a ton of cars glad we gave them a 2nd chance. It also seems like they have a wide quite variety of entertainment going on even my Doctor plays there sometimes. Al Pittman Pros: food, great sound, cool vibe Cons: no valet parking, no Boudin, no cigars sold more

  • In Short
    French Quarter Cafe complements its Cajun cuisine with some of the best blues and Southern-fried rock in town on its two stages. The lower level features theme events like writers' nights, while the ample upstairs stage features everything from swing and Americana to house bands. Four suspended TVs provide post-meal distractions. The venue is exceedingly laid-back, with Mardi Gras-like decorations year-round, and the relatively early start to the live music caters to Nashville's early-to-bed, early-to-rise weeknight crowd.
