5 Restaurants Around Nashville With The Most Amazing Dockside Dining
Don’t be fooled by the landlocked reputation of Tennessee – we have plenty of riverfront to wander and there are quite of few lakeside restaurants hiding behind our rolling hills. Nashville itself is quite the foodie behemoth in recent years, and these five restaurants around Music City offer a perfect reprieve from the daily grind. Whether you’re looking for respite or a good time with friends, these waterfront restaurants in Nashville are bound to give you a good time.
1. Blue Moon Waterfront Grille - Nashville
The Bluemoon Waterfront Grill was actually swept away in the Nashville flood of 2010, but has returned with a delicious vengeance. The live music venue sits right on the water in west Nashville, and the fun, quirky atmosphere pairs perfectly with menu options like coconut shrimp and seafood tacos. (525 Basswood Avenue)
2. Riverview Restaurant & Marina - Ashland City
Ashland City may seem like a sleeper town, but Riverview Restaurant & Marina is the perfect spot to pitch up on the river and enjoy a classic meal bursting with fresh seafood. Famous for its catfish, you can also indulge in a steak or delicious sandwich. (110 Old River Road)
3. Cherokee Steak House & Marina - Lebanon
Cherokee Steak House and Marina is a little out of town in Lebanon, Tennessee, but the view and menu makes it well worth the drive. The BYOB restaurant serves classic seafood dishes alongside thick cuts of steak and has been open since 1958. (450 Cherokee Dock Road)
4. The Rudder at Anchor High Marina - Hendersonville
The hot crab dip at the Rudder is TO DIE FOR. Really. Sure, a dip is pretty hard to mess up, but we can't get over how delectable and savory this menu option really is. The relaxed atmosphere makes it great for families, but don't be fooled - this waterfront restaurant is great for a solid happy hour, too. (126 River Road)
5. Shipwreck Cove at Elm Hill Marina - Nashville
Hiding off of Bell Road in Antioch, a suburb located in southeast Nashville, Shipwreck Cove offers up Redneck Nachos (chips, Jack Daniel's BBQ sauce, pulled pork, pico de gallo and ALL the cheese) and Cajun Steak Tip Fondue within a wildly diverse and indulgent menu. (3361 Bell Road)
If you’d rather indulge in seafood, as opposed to dinner with a view, then we’d recommend
this gorgeous restaurant in the heart of Nashville. This is the kind of dinner that thrives on being fishy!
