We tried this restaurant for breakfast on a Thursday morning. The décor is reminiscent of a colonial inn. They have a breakfast buffet that includes coffee or juice for $7.95. While they don't cook food to order with the buffet, it did have a nice variety of options, and was very good. Try the pumpkin bread. We got coffee refills... More

Whenever we visit Nashville we usually have at least one meal here. On this visit we had the pot pie, veggie quesadilla and kids cheeseburger. All arrived fresh, hot and delicious. We asked for some rolls and they were a bit stake and cold. All in all, another good visit. Fair prices and good service.

We had no complaints about this restaurant. We had dinner and breakfast here during our one-night stay at the attached inn. The food is homestyle, the server was nice and attentive. Our only issue was having to move tables due to an extreme fly issue. Unfortunately moving the table didnt' help, but I'm sure it was just due to the... More

We were pleasantly surprised when we dined here. Despite the menu being fairly basic, we were very impressed with the quality (and quantity) of the food. The service was prompt as well. A minor disappointment that we knew up front was that they do not serve alcoholic beverages, so you may want to plan to get your libations elsewhere, before... More

Good food and nice staff. We sat on the front porch (both times) and it was nice to people watch. The blackberry cobbler was VERY GOOD.

We stopped here for dinner one night and were seated after two very large tables of about 20 each. Service was a little slow and food was really only so-so. I have to say I was disappointed. I ordered the salmon and found it to be a little fishy. My salad was okay and the corn was less than hot... More

Late lunch with friends - we were a group of 7 arriving around 2 PM, and they were busy, so we were not able to sit together, which was not a problem. 2 of us at our table had the broccoli and cheese quiche and Italian vegetable soup. The soup was very good - the quiche a little bland. Another... More

My husband and I visited this restaurant on a Sunday evening, August 3rd, around 6pm. The restaurant was somewhat full. We sat outside on the porch which was nice. It was several minutes before we were greeted and several more before we received our waters. Friends recommended the Sweet Potato Fries with the sweet syrup dip. We ordered the appetizer... More

Went for lunch on a summer weekday. Prices and food quality get rave reviews. Sign outside says "no strollers". I own a $300.00 baby stroller and was not comfortable leaving it outside unattended AND there were only 2 other tables in the restaurant so I went ahead and pushed the baby(6 weeks old mind you) in the stroller. An older... More

We bought tickets for the buffet for $5 each while booking our overnight stay. What a great breakfast for $5. If you leave hungary, there is something wrong. Will definitely return to this restaurant.
