Historic and Cozy Choice for a Meal

This is our favorite dining destination in Nashville, IN. It's historic, homey and has a good menu. The fireplace is nice in the colder months and the wait staff is always friendly. They have a nice patio for dining too. Anything on the menu is delicious and, even though it sometimes isn't, tastes... read more

Only ate the breakfast buffet here. It was included with our room rate. It was delicious. They had a couple of unusual items - fried biscuits and warm apple butter that you could ladle onto your french toast or into your oatmeal.

Was looking for somewhere other than McDonald's serving breakfast on iur way out of town. Glad we found this place. We will definitely be visiting again when we come back. Would love to try out the murder mystery and dinner one time. Sounds interesting. Staff was polite and food was great!

The food was very good. The room was loud with a large party but quieted down some once they left. The wait time was average. Prices were comparable. The decor was nice.

The cinnamon bread things were AMAZING! Everyone loved them! They had hash browns, bacon, scrambled eggs, French toast and more... All was very good. Then they had a... More

My husband loved the breaded pork tenderloin he ordered. I ordered quiche and salad. The quiche was creamy, well-seasoned, and cheesy. The house vinaigrette dressing was yummy, but the greens were pretty... More
