Where to Eat and Drink Near Nissan Stadium

From sports bars to fine dining, options await on Titans game-days

View as Map

Nissan Stadium is just a bridge away from downtown across the Cumberland, but it can still feel like a bit of an island when it comes to dining pre- or post-game. Between downtown and East Nashville, however, a rainbow of options can be found within a mile of the stadium.

To be included, restaurants must be situated one mile or less from the stadium, and must be open on Sundays either for pre- or post-game dining.

The proximity of Bolton’s to Nissan Stadium makes it easy to check off both “eat hot chicken” and “attend an NFL game” from a bucket list in one sweaty afternoon. That’s assuming hot chicken has become a token bucket list item — which according to the lines everywhere — it has. Bolton’s in East Nashville is open on Sundays from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m.
