Baked sweet potatoes with Brown sugar syrup gone. Ordered Ada Shultz salad..it no longer had hard cooked eggs, broccoli bits or cauliflower thru it. just lettuce chicken tomatoes, cheese and croutons. Homemade parmesan... More

We stopped for lunch in the off season. The restaurant/inn looks like fairly new construction on the outside, but in the dining room, there are wide plank floors covered with worn oriental carpets. It’s low light with area art on the walls, lots of Windsor chairs showing some honest wear. A stone fireplace wasn’t used while we were there. Our... More

We stopped in here for dinner on Saturday evening, prior to a performance at the local playhouse. The place has an inviting ambiance in the Brown County style, though it would have been nicer if the big fireplace had been going on a frigid winter night! Our hostess and server were prompt and welcoming. But the reason for being here... More

This is a very nice location in the middle of town. The menu was very complete and the food was very good.

We stayed in the hotel, had dinner late that evening (near closing time) and then the breakfast buffet the next morning: Both were very good and the service was excellent. My barbecue ribs (one of their specialties, according to the server) were fall off the bone tender and delicious. My wife's beef barley soup was tasty and very meaty, and... More

We've stayed there and the stay included the free breakfast buffet. Now when we stay other places we still go there for the breakfast buffet. For around $7 it's very well priced, clean, quaint and cozy....In the warmer months you can enjoy your food out on the deck. Very nice place.

My sister and I met friends for lunch at their favorite place in Nashville. Great choice! We had a corner table with a nice view of the village. Noise level was not an issue. Their famous broccoli slaw was delicious, as was the quiche with a flaky crust. The sweet potato fries with a sweet dipping sauce were a great... More

We visited late (8) on Saturday evening. We were the only ones in the dining room. Our service and meal were excellent. Cindy is a great server. The owner told us all about her beautiful hand made Christmas village. It was a very special evening.

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
