Nice!!

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... read 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.

They have the best Sweet Potato Pancakes, served with a Pecan sauce that is out of this world. If we need to drive north to Indy, this is the route we take, just to eat breakfast here. My husband will usually get their breakfast buffet which is always well tended and offers a great selection of foods. Their coffee is... More

Nice atmosphere right on the main drag in Nashville. Very attentive service and the food was very good. We would return next time we are in town.

We were given a gift certificate for an evening meal at the Artist Colony. We were seated and the waited comes up and asks what we would like to drink. I mentioned we did not know what they had to offer. I then ask for a beer menu. I was then informed soft drinks and water only. So we ordered... More

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
