This play is two hours of pure comic entertainment. The acting was flawless and the music was exactly what you would expect in Nashville. We are season ticket holders at the theater but don't normally eat so not qualified to comment about the meals. However, as season ticket holders we do get free deserts which are always delicious. We have been pleased with every performance we have seen the past two years as STHs. The casts have consistently been very professional. I recommend this play and the theater in general for an entertaining evening.

The show and the actors were awesome! The food was cold, bland and tasteless. After dinner I ordered a $6 glass of wine (not good either) paid with $10, never got change. The show was fabulous, but dinner left a lot to be desired.
Also the women's restroom was out of order!!

My wife and I decided to go here for her birthday having never been. Right when we walked in the atmosphere was friendly and welcoming. The host guided us to our table and he could tell that I wasn’t thrilled with the seating, so without me even having to ask he moved us to make the evening more enjoyable for us. He went just above and beyond and we were grateful. Our server Avery was so pleasant and attentive. We went in not knowing what to expect and got excellence. I would highly recommend this place.

We found this place by accident while surfing on Tripadvisor. We decided to get tickets and go see "Annie" that had just started the day before. The buffet had good country cooking and good deserts. Our server Marquette was OUTSTANDING and the owner came by twice to talk with us before the play started. They had live music before the play and they were also good. The cast of the play was very good and entertaining. I would HIGHLY recommend this to anyone visiting Nashville.

The show was amazing! We saw “God’s Favorite” tonight and thoroughly enjoyed it. The acting was superb and the play was so well done. We had the buffet and it was just ok. Skip the Apple pie. The hydraulic stage that lowers into the middle of the theater is very cool! I can’t wait to visit again!

This was our first visit to Chaffin's Barn since their recent remodel. They have done a good job freshening up this place, while remaining the same feel we all know and love. I've been attending performances at Chaffin's Barn since I was a child and it's always a great experience. We attended the play only this time, and did not try the new menu, but I look forward to doing that soon. it was father's day, so they honored the men in the audience with a free piece of pie. Their peanut butter pie is a classic and I enjoyed every bite. The audience really enjoyed the play and I think everyone definitely felt good leaving the theater.

I wish Chaffin's Barn many more years of success. They are a familiar and welcome presence in the quickly changing landscape of Nashville and Middle TN.

We attended a performance of God’s Favorite at Chaffin’s. We called for tickets since it was our first time and spoke with Jenny. She was delightful and put us at maybe the best table in the place. She even came by during the evening and introduced herself and we spoke several times throughout. Ella took care of us for our meal and was also very sweet and charming.

The food was Southern fare and we had the buffet (which, for reference is separate from the cost of the show). Chicken and pork were very good. Maybe skip the fish... We also ordered a desert off the menu (chocolate peanut butter pie) which was a perfect end to the meal - as Ella recommended.

The show was very good and well acted. The cast was so fluid in scene to scene and the story was engaging. They now have live singers before the show which was lovely during the meal.

We will definitely attend more shows at Chaffins. We live well over 45 minutes away but the trip was certainly worth it to see and experience such a lovely time that is so unique to Nashville. Thank you, Norma (owner) and all the people at Chaffin’s for such a creative, fun and engaging experience!

Great place to visit. The actors did a great job. They did run out of chicken. The food tasted good. We saw Minnie Pearl.

Kiss Me Kate was an excellent production loaded with talented performers and some powerhouse singers. The staging is inventive and was a fun experience so up close and personal. Our first time at Chaffins but not our last. Did not have dinner due to some current dietary restrictions but will try food next time.

Hubby said it reminded him of the supper clubs of the 60's. While I agree, I felt it was a supper club with a down home feel. Very cool that it has been around as long as it has.

We discovered Chaffin's last year for the Christmas play, A Wonderful Life, and came back this year for Elf. This is a great fun place for couples or families. The service is outstanding! The talent of the performers is amazing. There was a slight mixup on our seating this year due to two groups having my last name, so understandable but the owner was so gracious and generous about it. He moved us stage side and comp'd our drinks and desserts. And not only that, came back several times to check on us and chat. Hard to find that level of customer service these days. We are definitely planning several more outings at Chaffin's. I highly recommend it!
