  • WOW! Is the best word to describe my experience. Skulls is up Printer's Alley and a bit off the beaten path but well worth the trip. Easily accessible by foot. I went in on a Thursday evening and the place was packed. I would recommend getting a reservation which I did not have. Undeterred, I was able to find a seat at the bar. This location is so lovely. Dimly lit, live jazz music, and a super friendly staff. You must go!
  • Skulls is an absolute gem of downtown Nashville and especially, Printer's Alley. The decor is of the period in the Prohibition Era...there is even the old "peephole" on the back door! As cozy and cute as the restaurant is, it is the food that is spectacular. I have never had a bad meal. The chef is from the Gulf Coast and the Lobster Bisque shows that off. It is the BEST bisque I have ever had in my life (and I have eaten it on every coastline that America has). The steaks are beautiful and so tender, you can cut them with your fork. The chef rotates vegetable sides as to the season. They are always hot, fresh and excellent to taste. Service is always first rate. I love this restaurant and I recommend it highly! The only downside is that it does have the original tin ceiling so it can be quite loud. Come for the food, not for the conversation :) The bar staff is A+++ and they concoct some of the most delicious cocktails that Nashville has to offer. Try some of their specialties.
  • We had a great experience here. Went at 5 pm on a Friday and they were barely able to get us in, so definitely recommend making a reservation a few days ahead especially for the weekend. Everything was great - cocktails, meals, service, music. We ordered 2 specials - swordfish and New York strip and both plates were cleaned at the end. If you like an old fashioned, try the Southern Turf.
  • Hands down best dinner and atmosphere ever. We had such a special evening, wait staff was amazing, food was delicious, we weren’t rushed, got to relax and enjoy our time there, and the band was awesome. Thanks for a wonderful evening.
  • Great food and atmosphere! This place had excellent mixed drinks. Our group enjoyed everything we ordered from the prime rib, pork chop to the lamb.
