Nice Family Meal

Have eaten here on multiple trip to Brown County over the years. Most recent visit was the day before 4th of July, and despite the holiday weekend, service was excellent. My 4 year-old twins loved their meatloaf and gravy, and my parents had some great pulled pork barbeque. Will definitely eat here... read more

We ate here twice while visiting Nashville, IN. Wonderful food. The chicken pot pie was scrumptious.

The Artist's Colony is right in the middle of Nashville, Indiana. Everything is decorated so pretty in the town and the businesses. The setting is beautiful. We ate dinner here and sat out on the "porch" where we could enjoy the nice weather that evening. The food was very good. They have some signature items. I had the chicken pot... More

If management allows employees to continuously smoke out the back door, the least they can do is provide a receptacle for smoking waste instead of cigarette butts decorating the sidewalk and street. My husband and I frequently visit a lovely bed and breakfast adjacent to this restaurant. While enjoying the patios, it's hard to miss the continuous parade of back... More

In the heart of town, in a Victorian home like setting. Love their Sweet potato fries with dip ! I adore the chairs in the restaurant. I feel like I'm in New England. I drop in this restaurant every time I visit. Always great service ! The building is always decorated for the seasons. By far the Fall is my... More

I travelled to Nashville with a group this week and we were free to choose where we would have lunch. Some of my friends had lunched at the Artist's Colony Inn and Restaurant previously and gave it great reviews! I have been to Nashville but my first time at the Artist's Colony Restaurant and I loved it. I had the... More

The facility is historic in nature and interesting inside,but we love to sit outside and people watch. The food selection is varied, but not enough healthy choices to suit me.
