good food

We tend to eat here as last resort due to its close proximity to our B&B. The broccoli slaw is wonderful and I've rarely been given a poor meal.

Only one dinner visit but everything was pretty much average. Nothing bad, nothing great. Chairs a little uncomfortable. Service was above average.

Ate here for the breakfast buffet two mornings as well as lunch one day. Buffet was serve yourself but service for the beverages or anything else was poor--felt totally ignored and had most of my breakfast eaten before anyone ever came to serve. Lunch service was better and the soup and pot pie were wonderful. Really liked the menu for... More

A satisfying meal for Easter--many choices on the buffet, from breakfast to dinner! Attentive wait staff and a New England feel to the dining room made for a nice family meal.

We visit Artist's Colony Restaurant whenever we are in town for our girls getaway. They are located right in town with lots of great shops within walking distance. We have always been extremely pleased with the menu sections, the quality of the food and the friendly service we receive.

The restaurant is very clean and had a good atmosphere. I ordered the sirloin dinner not expecting the best since it seemed more of an all around restaurant. My sirloin was so tasty and tender. The you add in a baked potato, salad, roll, and vegetable...oh my! To say the least I was pleasantly surprised at the dinner that costed... More

Average meal but that's pretty much the best you'll get anywhere in Nashville-it definitely is NOT a town for going out to eat. Unfortunately, meals you get at McDonald's are just as good as any restaurant in town. If you're a foodie don't vacation in Nashville.

Good Food at a reasonable cost. Their soups are delicious on a fall or winter afternoon. The lit fireplace adds a special touch.
