Cock of the Walk

 

2624 Music Valley Dr
Nashville, TN 37214

Looming in the shadows of the Opryland Hotel, sits Nashville’s Music Valley where The Texas Troubadour Theatre, the Nashville Palace, The Opry Backstage Grill, and Cooter’s Place all hold their own as must see spots on any visit to Music City.

But travel just down the road, past the campsites, and you will come to one of Nashville’s most renowned eatery’s; Cock of the Walk!

The “country” tone is set for your experience when you pull into the parking lot and are looking directly at the large wooden building and their bold proclamation of being the place with the “World’s Best Catfish.”

Once inside, the décor continues providing the country atmosphere and Nashville vibe with rustic wooden walls that are plastered with autographed 8X10’s of country music superstars that have made the restaurant a stop on their to-do lists over the years.

But it’s the aroma that grabs a hold of you as smells of Catfish, Cornbread, and good old home cooked, comfort food fills the air.

Though their menu includes Fried Shrimp, Steaks, Salads, Broiled Chicken and Fish, when you eat at a place where Catfish is king, the signature dish is hard to resist.

Their Keelboat specials are all very reasonably priced and include their famous Catfish Filet ($13.95), Down River Chicken ($12.95), ½ Chicken ½ Fish (13.95) and Flatboat Shrimp (13.95).

Can’t decide? They’ve got you covered with the Red Feather Sampler ($15.95), in which you get Shrimp, Chicken, and Catfish.

All dinners are accompanied with fixin’s that include Fries, Hushpuppies, Coleslaw, Pickled Onions & Skillet Bread, the last which comes with a free little show from your server as they stand at your tableside with the bread in an iron skillet and toss it high into the air while flipping it.

Top it all off with a big old glass of sweet tea, and your country dining experience is complete at Cock of the Walk.

Fun Fact – The must-see, oversized rocking chair inside the restaurant’s lobby provides families with the perfect place to stop for a photo and take home a memory.
