Wonderful environment to have breakfast and lunch...have never been there for dinner or don't even know if it is offered.... lunch was good, above average, but my guest had to have her chicken pie heated again. The Waitress Seemed a bit overwhelmed even though it was 1:30 Or so.....anyway, it's a well noted spot in Nashville and should at least... More

Food and atmosphere is good, but no alcohol. Conveniently located on the Main Street. If in town shopping, it is near shops.

While staying in Brown County we had several meals here and surely wished we would have booked it for Thanksgiving dinner! Parking on the street.

We had supper there in November. Food seemed a little basic. Maybe what we ordered. Not as crowded as past years we visited.

The food was good, and the menu had a lot of options. I had the marinated chicken breast with baked potato and house salad. The ranch dressing was very good. Service was excellent and the waitress was very friendly. The space was roomy and had a nice atmosphere. We will eat here again if we come back to Nashville.

I love the sweet potato fries! The wait can be long at peak times, but the food is good and worth it. Put in your name and check out some of the little shops just next door while you wait.

Very central location in the middle of town with a menu with a lot of selections. The food is well presented and everything is fresh.

Come back every year while at the training for social workers. Quiche and soup was wonderful. Great service, cozy atmosphere. All around best place in Nashville to grab some food and chat with friends.
