So this one is off the beaten path, but it's definitely worth the drive. It's very unique but will leave you with warmth in your heart for the ways of the south. I think breakfast is their best meal and you'll want to leave with some time to spare to enjoy the trinkets and oddities hung all around the place.... More

Like many of the customers today, we wanted to see the little restaurant on one of our favorite T.V. shows, The Joey and RoryShow, before going to their concert at night. This place is so quaint and the food was just like my sweet grandma used to make on the farm. The waitress was so sweet and Marci came by... More

After a 3 1/2 week trip out to Arizona we were taking the southern route back and coming up on I-65 so we could stop in at Marcy Jo's. As we drove up and didn't see any cars we thought we were in the wrong time zone and miss lunch. Then we saw the note on the door "due to... More

We had been wanting to try this place after seeing it on the Joey and Rory show - got the opportunity on a recent visit to Tennessee. We went on Tuesday between Christmas and New Year's - got there around 12:30 and waited about 20 minutes for a table - it's a pretty small place. Well worth the wait -... More

We so enjoyed our visit here. This place is so unique! The down home food was excellent and the waitress was very pleasant. Mary Jo came around and talked with her customers and we were able to see Joey in the the kitchen area although she didn't come out to visit with the customers that day. Will definitely return whenever... More

I cannot begin to describe how delicious the poppy seed chicken casserole is. It's a southern treat that one has to experience. The mealhouse may be small, but that only adds to the charm and hospitality. We stopped by during a particularly busy time (Joey+Rory concert day) and found the staff more than prepared for the 'rush'. The food was... More

We had the catfish dinner and a cinnamon roll - everything was fresh, good-tasting, and homemade! Met Marcy Jo when she came out and went around to all the tables to speak to diners.

Wow. This place just keeps getting better. . When we go to Nashville, it is a must to go here to eat. It is like 40 miles but well worth it. This time we went twice, lunch and then back for breakfast the next morning. Just a great setting. Reminds me of growing up. . Marcy keep it coming, one... More
