THE STOCK-YARD —
Great Food in Music City

The name is deceptive. It’s not attached to a slaughterhouse - although it is located in the former Nashville Union Stock-yards in the every striking old building which was once the district's administrative center. But Nashville’s fabulous and exceptional restaurant, The Stock-yard, offers beef of a quality usually found only in Chicago and New York.

Don’t think for one moment that their menu is all red meat, however. While steaks and chops are plentiful, lobster and the catch of the day are also featured.

The wine list is book length. Prices range from very affordable to budget-busters. Each wine consumed reflected professional selection and a cellar well maintained

The Stock-yard is old brick on the outside with a lush interior of old oak, mahogany, brass and mirrors. Established in one of Music City's historic architectural treasures, it has the feel of a late19th century chophouse with luxurious appointments.

It’s a short distance from Music Row and the Ryman Auditorium, the original site of The Grand ol’ Opry. Since 1979 when restaurateur Mario Ferrari, along with music mogul Buddy Killian, first opened The Stock-yard, its lively lounge has featured headline acts fromthe Nashville music scene.

The excellent wine and food, however, are the main attraction, and the restaurant is well worth a visit whether or not you stay to enjoy the music.
