Have eaten here many times when we visit Nashville. Food is always good. Had a late lunch on a fairly quiet Friday afternoon, so restaurant was not busy. Waitress this visit seemed a little unfriendly - maybe just a bad day for her. Hubby had quiche and potato soup - I had a tenderloin sandwich. My tenderloin was the typical... More

We ate breakfast here 2 days in a row. First day we ate off the menu. I had an omelette and my husband pancakes. Both were very tasty. Second day we had the buffet. This was just okay. We ate on the porch both days which is just gorgeous. Beautiful gardens, very peaceful.

Friends of ours had recommended the restaurant to us. We ate both a lunch and a dinner at the restaurant and had great meals both times. The service was good and the food came out just as we had ordered. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting the Nashville area.

Had dinner here and was just so-so. Portions seemed small and menu limited. Disappointed I couldn't get a glass of wine with dinner. Vegetable sides were bland. I did like the vinaigrette salad dressing. Service was fast.

Have eaten here several times and the menu has been average each time that we have been there. Prices are somewhat high for what you receive in return. Nice dining area with optional outdoor seating. Can be a little loud. if you prefer atmosphere and can suffer through average cuisine this is a good choice for you.

You may eat indoors or outdoors. The breakfast buffet had good food an at the right temperature. The wait staff is very friendly and cordial. The reason I say the restaurant manager is strange is because, as should be in a buffet line, there were plates provided to place the serving utensil upon. I did that and he immediately reached...

We have eaten here many times and have always been happy with the service and the food. Today on our way home from Bloomington we stopped for something to eat. I ordered my usual, the breaded tenderloin and it was perfect. My husband got the special of the day...Catfish sandwich. He said it was the BEST Catfish sandwich he had... More

Lunch at 2:30 in the afternoon on a weekday - very slow service, small portions and more expensive than other options in town
