$31 to $50
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 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.

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.

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!

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.

Bottomless mimosas and delicious food. Must try their French toast (to die for). Staff is so great and the fact I get my check in a book is amazing. Love this place. Always bring out of town guests here.

Three of us all ordered filet and cooked differently. When girl brought them to our table I asked if she was sure they were right and she was adamant that they were. Mine was wrong and none were really cooked correctly. Very disappointing. Our server was no where to be found and couldn’t really fix the problem. I think it’s a great place but was just an off night.

A friend and I went for Brunch there yesterday; my first brunch at Earnest, and it was on par with all the good food and experiences I've had there. My steak and eggs were prepared to perfection and the portions were comfortably modest (ie: not too much food.) Highly recommended!
