It kind of feels like you’re walking into your eccentric grandma’s house, if your grandma also served some of the best food in Nashville.

If you know The Bluebird Cafe at all, it’s probably because you heard that this is the music venue where Taylor Swift was discovered. She played here as a teenager, just like many other country music stars who went on to do great things. Although The Bluebird Cafe is known more for its musical acts than its cuisine, we can confidently recommend the BLT, the chicken fingers, and the chicken salad club.
If you decide to go, try to get there early around 3:30 or 4:00 on the day of the show. You’ll have to stand in line to get tickets, and the line can get long fast. People who miss out on early tickets can come back later around 6:30 to try and score some of the open seating options. This is an intimate venue with extremely limited seating, so make sure you plan out your night ahead of time.
Wednesday night is burger night at Table 3, which means burgers are only $5! With all the money you’re saving on burgers, you can also order a cheese plate for your table. This is a French bistro and market, so they know what they’re doing when it comes to fancy cheeses.
Table 3 is perfect for relaxed dinners and lunches, as it’s usually quiet and has super comfortable seating. The wait staff is also known for being attentive, so you should be able to squeeze in a quick bite before catching a movie at Regal Green Hills Stadium.
