We went to this Inn for lunch the service was great. Sat outdoors and our meals were great for the lunch time. I would recommend the place for a casual and relaxing time. Afterwards we seen the sights of Nashville.

We stayed at the artists colony inn and only ate at the restaurant for the breakfast buffet. It was free with our stay so I can not comment on the price but the food was hot and good. The staff was friendly and we would stay there again.

My wife and I thought this would be a good place to go for dinner. The Artist's Colony Inn is beautiful and the little shops surrounding it make for a nice setting, especially if you sit outside as we did. I ordered the sirlloin and sweet potato. My wife had the vegetable lasagna. Our waiter was a nice young man... More

I have somehow always skipped eating here for years when we go down but this time made sure we ate here. I was very disappointed. To start the place just felt like it needed a good wipe down. The table had some kind of "coating" on it. The service could have possibly made it better. We didn't have a very... More

Had dinner last Sunday evening (first timers). Ordered a breaded tenderloin and it was good, broccoli slaw we did not care for. Wife had sweet potato friends which she enjoyed. Reasonably priced for a tourist town. Nice colonial atmosphere.

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.
