“Serving Nashville since 1945!”
Rotier's has been serving cold beer, burgers, and handmade milkshakes since 1945. John and Evelyn Rotier started the restaurant after WWII, the building was originally a carriage house for the Elliston mansion. Rotier's started as a beer joint with cheeseburgers and pinball machines and later evolved into a full scale restaurant soon after gambling became illegal in Tennessee. The meat and three menu came along or "meat and vegetables" if you are not from Tennessee, so patrons could choose from several different home cooked meals. John and Evelyn had three children, John, Margaret, and Charlie Rotier who all worked in the restaurant. Rotiers is located in walking distance from Vanderbilt University at 2413 Elliston Place, the restaurant has been a Vanderbilt tradition and Nashville landmark for many years and continues on with third generation family members to this day. The Cheeseburger on French bread is Rotier's claim to fame! Featured on Burger Land!
Rotier's is packed with nicknacks, pictures, memorabilia and excellent food. The service is warm and friendly; it is the perfect destination for a great meal when you don't want to just pull off the highway and eat just anywhere.
Loved the fact that this place is old and not trying to impress anyone. The food and service was great. You can tell that it is an older establishment and there hasn't been renovations done - that is why I LOVED this restaurant. I want some with character and Rotier's didn't disappoint! I will be back again!
Points for the old-school vibes and milkshakes, but the food isn't anything special. I like my burgers juicy, and theirs isn't really... but the signature French bread bun was tasty!
