Just not what it used to be

Visited on Saturday, the first warm sunny day of the year. People were out in droves, but surprisingly, not at the Nashville House. The fried biscuits and slaw were good, but not mouth watering. The fried chicken was overcooked and dry. This restaurant 30 years ago was the star attraction in... read more

We made our annual trip to Brown County and Nashville with our 4 grand kids. They would not miss our dinner at the Nashville House. Fried biscuits and apple butter are not to be missed. Country fried chicken is delicious with all the fixin's. This place is always on our list when in Nashville.

We have been eating here for 40+ years on special occasions. It went through some ownership changes I think, but seems to be what we always loved - the uniquely flavored slaw, the delicious fried chicken, & the awesome fried biscuits & apple butter that others try to imitate. Unfortunately the health dept. doesn't let them make the sassafras tea... More

We've ordered fried chicken and biscuits to go from here a few times on our way home to Indy, but my mom and I just ate at the restaurant for the first time in a long time. It seemed pricey however we were able to split the fried chicken dinner and still have plenty of food. Everything was delicious, especially... More

This place charges 20. For lunch of canned food! Seriously, #10 canned vegetables slopped on the plate leaving everything else swimming. I complained and said it was the worse meal ever. She smiled replied with "I get that all the time"

I was told that this place is so crowded in the summer time that there's a long line to get in. We were there off season so it wasn't bad at all. The place is lovely and rustic and the food was really good. However, while the service was good, it could use some improving. Our server banged everything down... More

Very courteous and friendly staff ! The staff went above and beyond to accomidate our autistic granddaughter , and the food was tasty, generously portioned, and very reasonably priced! The ONLY bad thing I could say would be ; it's high time the decor was updated.

You know from the review it is all over the place- but, our experience was not good- had a wait a long time for our food and way overpriced for chicken dinner. We left hunky and broke. Since we go to Nashville on a regular bases - and will be buying a home their , this would not be a... More

The Nashville House has been one of the mainstays in Nashville, Indiana since Noah got off the Ark. The fried biscuits and fried chicken are wonderful but this old style "home cookin'" doesn't come cheap. The menu is basically what grandma used to cook (unless you are Italian).
