Consistently good

My wife and I have eaten there for lunch five or six times in the last three years and the catfish with jalapeño hushpuppies have always been good. Service is always vgood and the prices are reasonable for the area and quality/quantity of food. Definitely worth more return visits!

My family and I eat at Vittles at least three times a month and have been doing so for years. This is a popular meat and three establishment where the food is consistently very good. Their chicken fried chicken is as good as you will find anywhere (including at home). The wait staff is always pleasant and welcomes everyone with... More

Vittles proved today to be very unremarkable and certainly not worthy of a return trip. We arrived around noon and the restaurant was reasonably busy. Seating is somewhere between grandma's kitchen and thrift store finest. I had the chicken livers: about a third were undercooked. The rest? Just okay (Cracker Barrel does a much better job on chicken livers, if... More

I've been to vittles a few times. It's okay for a quick meat and three stop but nothing memorable. Typical servings, fried chicken, Mac and cheese. It is too pricey in my opinion for what you get. I know a few people who would disagree with me and absolutely love Vittles. I'm not saying there's anything wrong or the food... More

Recommended by a local for breakfast and it was an excellent recommendation. Friendly staff and tasty food. Has been open for about 2 years and may take a bit of effort to find in the shopping area but a great experience overall.

I cannot say that everything they serve is Excellent, however the salmon "patties" have great flavor, texture and they give you a good amount.

We eat here often on Sundays following church. They are always congenial and the food is above average and moderately priced. This is a good place to go if you like "meat and threes" or traditional southern cooking.

A step or more above other meat and three or neighborhood restaurants. We have a number of good restaurants of this type in our area, but Vittles is simply a lot better. The menu has considerable variety consistent with casual dining, but the restaurant also does the traditional dishes and sides unusually well. It is difficult to describe how the... More

Classic comfort food like Momma used to make. Eat here just about every time I come to Nashville/Brentwood. Just a good little family restaurant. Desserts are great!

We were looking for a nice little quiet spot with simple, southern cooking to visit with friends. Atmosphere is fine. People were very friendly and the service was good. The food, however, was rather inconsistent. Black-eyed peas were amazingly good. But, we had to send the okra back. It tasted of old grease and was terrible. Sweet tea was excellent,... More
