My husband and I dined at Sperry's Cool Springs Saturday night, 7/14. Just wanted to send a note about the amazing service. Carlo has served us many times and he's so gracious, professional and fun! The food was excellent, as always, and we really appreciate the top-notch staff, especially Carlo. Thank you for a consistent and impeccable experience!

We had a wonderful evening with four of our friends and enjoyed some exceptional food ..!! Our waitress was Ms. Eve and the service was top notch.! We will definitely be back to enjoy the unbelievable steaks and delicious salad bar.

Had an awesome Happy Hour experience at Sperry’s Belle Meade tonight. Shout out to Steve, the bartender, and to Todd, the GM, for the royal treatment. We will be back!

Thank you for staying on top of the order for me. It meant a lot to Adam and all of his family.

Dessert was decadent.

I will be back and I've already recommended you to several.  Thanks for a truly pleasant dining experience.

We all complain from time to time, but not so many of us take time to give praise when it is really due.

It's really nice to find service these days, your employees have shown that they not only do a great job, they do it with passion and concern for their guests.

Al & Trish, Thank you for inviting me back to Sperry's !

I just want you to know that our dinner experience at Sperry’s in Cool Springs last week was wonderful. The service, atmosphere and the food was outstanding.

Dinner was excellent and look forward to returning soon. Thanks

We enjoy the food & service always. Friendly also. We Will be Back.

We had a great time last night. I had several people from out of town compliment visiting and they were highly complimentary.

I was planning my 51st birthday in Nashville and to visit friends who reside in Hermitage Tn. We were planning my birthday dinner and my friends suggested Sperry's. What a GREAT suggestion! The staff was very friendly and welcoming. My friends are regular patrons and I can understand why. The service was outstanding, the food was amazing from the appetizers to the main entrée. I will definitely be back when I visit again.

Our family enjoyed our very first meal when we moved to Nashville at Sperry's and have been hooked ever since! We love a neighborhood steakhouse for our family of five. Just to let you know, our 8 year old daughter can't get enough of the rainbow trout! On her birthday, she only asked for Sperry's gift cards instead of presents. We love it!! Thank you for keeping your restaurant true to your heritage with fresh, amazing food for all ages!!

Sperry’s management,
Last night, I and four other family members celebrated my 76th birthday at your restaurant. I want to thank you and your staff for making the occasion more than just “special.” The food, beverage and service were impeccable. Our server, Steve kept the food and beverages flowing and it seemed there was no task too big or too small for him to address cheerfully and perform successfully. Although there were 5 of us at the table (creating a lot of dirty glasses and food dishes), Steve never allowed the table to become so cluttered that we couldn’t find a place to land our devices and personal effects. Thanks again for your professionalism and attention to detail. Sperry’s help make my 76th memorable and special.
As “Arnold,” famously said; “I’ll be back.”
Warm regards,

My son Christopher took me to Nashville Saturday night, 12/9 as a Christmas gift and took me to Sperry's. Neither one of us had ever been there. I just had to write and tell you that from the moment we arrived until we left we had a wonderful experience. We travel a lot and eat at some very nice restaurants but I will have to say this is probably one of the best meals I have ever had. I wish I could remember our waitress(I am horrible with names) we sat at one of the two tops against the wall in the front room. Anyway, she explained everything to us and timed out our salad, appetizer and meal to where we had plenty of time to enjoy each. The salad bar was fabulous and the crab cakes could not have been better, not to mention our delicious prime rib.
After we had finished our meal our waitress told the manager or one of the owners, I am not sure who he was, that this was our first time. When we thought we couldn't take another bite of anything, he showed up with the sticky toffee pudding. Oh My!! like I said we were stuffed but made room somehow to eat that-Ha! Thank you for making my dinner with my Son so special!! He is in sales and has not stopped telling everyone about our time at Sperry's. Merry Christmas!!

I was a vegetarian for approximately 15 years. About a year ago I expanded my dietary world to include fish, and now, apparently, I have thrown snails into the mix. When I starting eating fish is was a necessity during a busy trial; lots of long hours and few breaks for food meant I needed an easy way to up my protein intake. I never expected that it would lead to an ever-expanding world of new foods. My friend Tina, who is an endless source of good ideas, suggested I try the dish. We were both in need of a night off so we went to Nashville’s legendary Sperry’s Restaurant for a girls’ night out.

Escargot has been served for centuries. We all know it is famous French cuisine, but it was also a delicacy in ancient Rome and may have been a part of the prehistoric diet. Who knew cavemen were so civilized. Believe it or not, it is also pretty healthy. Escargot is extremely high in protein and low in fat. Well, if you don’t count all the butter.

The escargot were served in a traditional dish with mushrooms and garlic-herb, seasoned butter. The taste and texture reminded me of a combination of mussels and cooked mushrooms. A squirt of lemon really brought out the flavor. They were chewy, but not tough. And no, they were not slimy or anything else you might expect from a snail.

I never expected that escargot would taste so, well, normal. I am glad I decided to branch out and add something new to my diet. I am all ready for my next trip to Paris.

Our experience was great.  My message is to advise you the quality server you have with Beka.  On a day when many are at home with family, she was taking care of us and her spirits were high.  She was polite, interacted with us, which brings me back to restaurants, very informed on the menu and just an overall delight for our dining experience.  We drive forty miles to eat in this area and go back only to those restaurants worth our time. Would hope on our next visit our server is as good as Beka.

We enjoyed our meal and the service was so excellent, the food taste wonderful. It was our granddaughters nineth birthday and I must say she enjoyed every minute of it. She ate so well I was pleased to see her enjoy her food and the ice cream at the end of her meal. I just want to tell you we are so pleased with how everyone treated us, the server the hostess for making the family picture.  I have not enough words to say how pleased we were and how we enjoyed our visit and  meal. Our son his wife and our other three year old granddaughter all enjoyed the meal as well. All PLEASED!!!

When Anne I left Belle Meade for Texas in 1976, Sperry's on Harding was the location for our farewell dinner with dear friends. That night we had a wonderful time, and have used Sperry's for various business and social functions when in Nashville since then.

This year, when I asked Anne how she wanted to celebrate our 45th Anniversary, her response was:" I want to go to Nashville and have a party with our friends."

Two or three conversations with Pamela Andrews  later, we were set to celebrate Wednesday, May 27th in a private room at Cool Springs location. She handled all of my requests, including receiving the flowers and Anniversary cake without a hitch and Chris handled our party of nineteen flawlessly, so that all of our Nashville friends commented on the selection of Sperry's as a wonderful treat.

Most of our friends, like many others get seduced by the new kid on the block, and expect the National Chains to do a better job of delivering consistent quality in food and beverage service. But although consistent "B+" may make normal dining or business meetings enjoyable; there is always a need for "A+" experience when memories are created.

Knowing that restaurant staff take the importance of my hosting a dinner as seriously as I do; means that I can relax and enjoy my guests and the evening without anxiety. Pamela and Chris should be complimented for the wonderful job they did for someone that had driven 650 miles to spend an evening at Sperry's.

To Al and Sam, thank you for maintaining, one of my favorites and maybe, like wine, even making it better with age.

My husband and I came into Sperrys for the first time last week. We sat at the bar, we just wanted to get a dessert and a glass of wine. The girl behind the bar gave us great recommendations on both wine and dessert. We just want to let you know how enjoyable your bartender, Alisha, made our experience. We ended up finishing a bottle of wine and having a bourbon drink, closing down the bar with her. We felt you should know that our experience with her that night prompted us to bring in friends of ours this past Friday. Again a fabulous experience, Alisha even took time to come by our table in the dining room and say hello. The food was great, our service on Friday was wonderful as well! You will be seeing a lot more of us!

During our recent business trip we had the pleasure of the Marriott suggesting Sperrys. Normally we would just leave our tip with a smile, but the service was beyond your typical or even above normal service. We were greeted with warmth and genuine hospitality by a young lady named Alisha. She was so helpful in suggesting the fish of the day which I might say was delicious. And the French Flirt martini she suggested devine. I will go as far as to say it was the best service we have ever had. We will definitely be stopping in for dinner on our next trip to town. Thank you for hiring such a lovely young lady into your establishment. It makes us, your customers, a much more pleasant and enjoyable evening as we enjoy your delicious food.

My Grandson is a Junior at Ole Miss and the meat order was a surprise for him. He drove home with a friend today to attend the Vandy - Ole Miss Football Game tomorrow. My son ordered steaks, also, and grilled them tonight. They were amazing! Sperry's is a favorite of mine and has been for years. I'm usually there every Friday evening with a group of friends. The 6 oz. filet is my favorite.

Adam is a really good cook and grill master. We gave him the steaks I ordered so he could take them back to school. I take Adam to Sperry's when we have time together and it's his favorite place. He was so surprised...you would not believe the smile on his face! He couldn't afford to buy this kind of steak on his own. By the way, he's on the Dean's List, too.

Thank you for staying on top of the order for me. It meant a lot to Adam and all of his family.

Loved, loved, loved the atmosphere.  Loved the food even more.  Excellent salad bar, the special was bacon wrapped filet with crab and a large lobster tail.  The service was impeccable; I believe our waiter was named Reese?

Dessert was decadent.

I will be back and I've already recommended you to several.  Thanks for a truly pleasant dining experience.

We all complain from time to time, but not so many of us take time to give praise when it is really due.

I couldn't have felt more special and cared for by your staff last evening. My Sweetheart has an allergy to gluten. Our server Gary took time to go over a few things with us about the menu, then the Manager Ron came over and told us about the food preparations and items that are safe on your salad bar, but when the chef, Eddie Jankouski took time to come out of his kitchen and go over our order to help us make the perfect selection of dinner and prepared us possibly the best meal of our life's. I thought you should be aware.

It's really nice to find service these days, your employees have shown that they not only do a great job, they do it with passion and concern for their guests.

Al & Trish, Thank you for inviting me back to Sperry's !

Just had a wonderful meal there... have missed Keith very much... ice cold beer, great service(the whole atmosphere is back to it's warm, Southern sophisticated charm) and wonderful food Sperry's is known for...... Thanks Keith and staff!!!

I just wanted to let you know how wonderful my parents 50th anniversary dinner was last Saturday (the Archers). Everything and everyone was superb. It was one of the best dining experiences I have ever had and I've been to many world class restaurants. I do not know the name of our most excellent waiter, kudos to him and his assistant - my parents were thrilled with both the service and the food. Everyone, and I do mean everyone we interacted with that evening was great, you really have a amazing crew. I wish we lived closer and could come there more often. Thank you so very, very much. I write a lot of internet reviews, this one will be a pleasure to share!

Dear CS Sperrys, We dined at your restaurant on Wednesday night for our anniversary. We had not been there before, but a friend loves your Belle Meade location, so we decided to try Cool Springs. We were very pleased with our meal and our service was excellent. Please let Reed know how much we appreciate him helping to make our occasion special. We will be returning to Sperrys again soon and will certainly recommend it to our friends. Also we were so pleased that you were donating some of the proceeds to Happy Tails in Franklin. Again, thank you for your fine service and food.

My wife and I came to eat at Sperry's for our 20th anniversary and it was one of the best meals we have had. The food and the service was awesome. Better than Stockyards. Thanks and we will be back.

I have heard my friend comment about Sperry's now for about a year. She has encouraged me repeatedly to visit, and that it is the best place ever. SO, my hubby and I made reservations and boy am I glad I did! The food and the service were beyond compare. I will definitely put this place on my list of must-dos when friends come to visit. Thank you!

No steakhouse in Nashville can compare to our Sperry's. Sad to hear of the temporary closing in Belle Meade due to the horrible floods in Nashville. Once you reopen, we will be back.

Dining at the Cool Springs location for Mother's Day, we were treated like the Royale Courte. My queen, young prince and princess all agree that Sperry's is second to none. Thank you Franklin and Godspeed Belle Meade!

Recently visited the Nashville area to celebrate the birthday of a dear friend. No trip to Nashville is complete without a visit to Sperry's in Belle Meade. It's been a tradition since 2002. I've dined at Morton's; the Palm; Ruth Chris; the Stock-Yard -- none can compare, or even come close to the wonderful dining experience.

Thanks for the "thanks" that you sent to me regarding my dinner at Sperry's on Saturday night. You are doing a great job...I have lived in Nashville my entire life, but had never stepped foot into your restaurant until you started doing your new promotions. I've been several times now, and end up spending over $100 with each visit. So well done! Get them into the place...that is the first step!

I just want you to know that our dinner experience at Sperry’s in Cool Springs last week was wonderful. The service, atmosphere and the food was outstanding.

Dinner was excellent and look forward to returning soon. Thanks

I went three times in march—two business trips and my wife/son. You are not only great—you are actually great for kids (well behaved ones). He loved it.   Thanks for being there—Sperry’s is the best.

Thank you for helping make our anniversary special. We got terrific service and a wonderful meal in a great atmosphere. I have eaten at Sperry's since it's original location opened and I was happy to see you open a location in Cool Springs and it was good to see that a lot of people find you as enjoyable as we do. We will see you again soon!!!

We enjoy the food & service always. Friendly also. We Will be Back.

We had a great time last night. I had several people from out of town compliment visiting and they were highly complimentary.

Please let everyone at Sperry's know how much Mother LOVED the arrangement of tulips and miniature irises that met us at our table this past Thursday for her birthday! When we arrived back at her home she immediately placed them in a place of honor in the middle of her living room coffee table. By the next afternoon, the tulip buds had bloomed and were stunning! Scott and Roger were so kind to go out of their way to let me know how much they appreciate my mother. As I have mentioned before, Sperry's holds a very dear spot in the heart of our family, and your help in making Mother's birthday so special is just one more example of why!!!!  God bless

I want to thank for the wonderful evening we enjoyed at Sperry's, and we realize much of that was due to what you had arranged. It was the most enjoyable meal we have ever eaten in a restaurant, and the food was out of this world. To top it off, we found out the entrees were half price. Everything about the visit was excellent. We had the best table by a gorgeous fire. Each employee made us feel as if we were the only people in the restaurant, even though it was full. Our waiter met all our needs without giving the feeling that he was hovering. The very nice man who met us at the door came by our table to see if everything was great with our meal. He told us we could ask for that table at a later visit, and you can be assured we WILL be visiting again. We are spreading the word about Sperry's. Thank you again.
