Hey, I’m Brent! I’m a member of the Education Team in the Center for Distance Health at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, Little Rock. I am excited about attending the upcoming South Central Telehealth Forum (#SCTF2016), which is being held in Nashville on August 1 & 2.
I consider myself somewhat of a Foodie because I enjoy trying new foods and searching for unique dining experiences. On a recent road trip to Nashville, I ate at some interesting places, so I wanted to share my discoveries and experiences with you!
If you get out and about in the city during #SCTF2016, you may want to check out this restaurant. For more information about the conference, click here!
Buckle up, and let’s go for a ride…Foodie Style!

The building that houses the Acme Feed & Seed was built in the 1800s as a family-operated grocery and farm supply business. While the building has held many businesses through the years, it became the Acme Feed & Seed in 2014. The building and its history contributes to the unique atmosphere of the restaurant.
The restaurant has four floors that offer different dining experiences.
The 1st floor is the main restaurant with a “fast-casual” dining atmosphere. You walk in, order from a menu board on the wall, get a number and the food is brought to your table or to the bar. Service is quick, fast and easy.
Plenty of seating styles are available:
- Tall Tables
- 4 Tops
- Community Style Tables
There is also a farm store where you can shop for local products and a stage for live music.
The 2nd floor is a bar/lounge with arcade games, pool tables and big televisions. It has a long drink menu with local beer, Tennessee Whiskey and other cocktails. Sushi is also available on the 2nd floor.
The 3rd floor is an event and music venue. While the space is available for rental, concerts and other music-related events are held on this floor.
The rooftop is an outdoor bar that overlooks the downtown, the Cumberland River and Nissan Stadium.
The wide variety of food at Acme Feed & Seed makes it especially unique. Acme offers traditional southern entrees, like ribs and catfish, along with sushi and more specialist dishes, like the Lobro sandwich. Entrees range from $10 – $20.

I went to the restaurant for lunch, and I ordered the Heaven-Lee half rack of ribs. The ribs were fall off the bone juicy and tender, with a smoky flavor. The half rack covered the entire plate with a crunchy bark. Sauce was served on the side.
The creamy mac and cheese and freshly-cooked collard greens went along as southern sides and complemented the smoky flavor.
The ribs went well with a pint of the Cutaway IPA from Tennessee Brew Works, a local Nashville brewery. The brew had a nice crisp, smooth and hoppy taste.
My Rating – 5/5
I rate Acme Feed & Seed a 5 out of 5. The food was exactly what I was hoping to find! The atmosphere was excellent, and it was just what I like – big, open and roomy! There were plenty of food and atmosphere choices – a southern-style restaurant, sports bar, sushi and a rooftop bar. I was impressed with the variety of choices under one roof!
The service was quick, and the bartender was super nice and very knowledgeable about the restaurant, downtown, the area, and local attractions. I was able to enjoy a great lunch in about an hour.
When I return to Acme Feed & Seed, I will try the Lobro sandwich, which is grilled ahi tuna with sesame slaw and avocado aioli. The Lobro looked amazing!
Good food, lots of fun and excellent service make Acme Feed & Seed a “must try” when motoring around the Music City! #MotoringAroundMusicCity #SCTF2016
