My memories were better than my recent meal

Went there for lunch on a Tuesday in October. Soo busy in Oct they don't take reservations and we had an hour wait. The fried chicken was to die for and the ham was yummy too. The veggie plate was good as well. The chicken salad was average and the colslaw was quite peppery. Half of our group liked... read more

My husband and I ate at the Nashville House restaurant while staying in town. The staff was very friendly and food was delicious, especially the fried biscuits with apple butter.

40-50 years ago as a child we would go to Brown County and Nashville each fall to see the leaves change. We went to the Nashville House for lunch every time. Returned for the first time and found nothing has changed. The fried biscuits and apple butter, the fried chicken and the piece of pie were exactly what I remembered.... More

You go there for the fried chicken, people! The turkey with mash potatoes and gravy are great, too. This spot is a destination for our family and a tradition for years. I personally LOVE the cole slaw. And, you can buy the seasoning packets in the store to make it at home. Don't even get me started on the fried... More

Needs a good face lift. It was very warm in the restaurant..requested that the ceiling fan be turned on...they said "go ahead and turn it on". Rolls with apple butter were good, coleslaw had a bite to it. I didn't finish it. We were waiting with great anticipation to enjoy Roast Pork with mashed potatoes and green beans. Waited a... More

The adjacent country store was a nice place to browse and shop while waiting for a table. We had an afternoon snack there. Not a full meal. We ordered biscuits with apple butter and side salads. The biscuits were terrific. I think it's a popular thing there. The service was very friendly. The atmosphere was country/cozy...just perfect. A nice relaxing... More

This was our first visit to the restaurant. It is a beautiful place and the staff was very friendly. We ordered fettuccine Alfredo. It was the best Alfredo I have ever eaten! Our entrée came with a fresh salad and wonderful homemade bread. We will make this a regular place to visit when we are in town!

Limited menu, over priced. Canned green beans and instant mashed potatoes. Good apple butter. Ribs are not tender, roast beef tender. Fried rolls very good- like an Un-filled hot Bismark (filled donut). Peach Cobbler just ok. $50 for 2 with iced tea.

Variety on the menu. Most go for fried biscuits; I especially like the apple butter that comes with them. Food was average, but plentiful.

Having spent some of my growing up years in Indiana and having spent some of it at the Nashville House, I could not wait to get back for those fried biscuits and apple butter. It had been pretty near 27 years since I was last there, but, oh my, are those biscuits wonderful and the apple butter every bit as... More
