Read reviews, decided to give it a try. Parking is not particularly easy, all metered, finding space as well. Food was good and tasty. Glad we tried it.

Peg Leg is a very quick walk from our hotel. Read some reviews and we were not disappointed. Around 6-6:30 on Thursday there was a line to the middle of the restaurant but it went quick, around 10-15 mins. By the time we got our drink and found a table outside they called my name. Food was fresh & hot. The dry ribs and mac & cheese were amazing, the green beans were ok. Pulled pork was really good. Service was friendly, prices are reasonable. Great place.

some of the best ribs ever! BBQ Nachos were incredible. prices were reasonable. Sides were great, mac n cheese was the best. Good cocktails too. When we passed through Nashville this year, we had to go there for dinner again. Go early though, line can get long.

We had pulled pork, ribs Mac n cheese and smoked green beans. Excellent lunch. Little bit of a wait but a lot less than some other places we saw in the Gulch on a busy Friday lunch time.

The food was good, service mediocre.

The mac & cheese is awesome! One of the kitchen folks said it was homemade; all their sides are made in-house. It did not disappoint. I highly recommend.

The restaurant has a bar and the atmosphere, in my opinion, seems too much like a bar: dark wood tables, low lighting and a bit loud. I personally wouldn’t take a kid in there. Doesn’t come across as family-friendly for that reason.

They have a small change making machine at the entrance. They want to make sure you have quarters for the parking meter. Too cool.

They had just installed a new system that was constantly freezing up! (Why?!) After every one to two customers, it would freeze up and you had to wait about 5 minutes(!) until in unfroze to proceed to take the next customer’s order. Needless to say, the line got long real quick!

The young girl at the counter was barely friendly (didn’t greet me or crack a smile!) and not was explaining the situation. I had to ask what was going on, why I was just standing there and her not taking my order. Had she been more customer-oriented and proactive, this review might have gotten 4 stars. Perhaps she needs customer service training or not be up front at all.
