Well done restaurant located in downtown Nashville. The only real downside of this restaurant is the long waits - allow at least 30 minutes at non peak times. If you can not deal with long waits you might be in the wrong town. There are several small shops well located for you to spend your money while waiting. The food... More

I ordered their soup of the day (chicken artichoke spinach) and their quiche. Both were amazing! The service was fast and the staff was extremely pleasant! I also ate breakfast there as I was staying at the inn for business. The buffet breakfast was okay. It's hard to serve hot buffet food but the sausage, bacon, and potatoes were all... More

This place can get very busy during lunch and dinner hours so I suggest eating a little early or later. The food is always wonderful and if I had one suggestion for your first trip I would suggest the ribs. The prices are reasonable and not bad for a touristy town. The staff was very friendly and our waiter still... More

One of the specials of the house are the Sun Fries. Sweet potato fries that are tasty just as they are, but when combined with the special sunshine dipping sauce takes you to a whole new level of yummy!!! This is a place of complete old style charm and in good weather you can dine out on the porch. It's... More

Good, consistent home made food at a reasonable price. Close to The Cornerstone Inn & great service. They do however need to get the fireplace fixed. It was very very cold.
