Breakfast is the BEST

The stuffed french toast is TO DIE FOR. Amazing service and very reasonable prices. Marcy actually waited on us. That speaks VOLUMES when they owner is helping out.

I will be taking my mom for lunch this Friday prior to going to the show at the farmhouse. My mom has been a huge long time fan of Joey and Rory. She was so excited when my husband and I stopped at Marcy Jo's last Fall on our way to Florida. We will be celebrating her upcoming 89th birthday!... More

Gave this a 4 because of the yummy desserts and quaintness of the place. The Coca Cola cake is amazing! The other food is just so so...kind of bland and dry-nothing to write home about. Service is hit or miss, just depends. It's a nice place to stop for desserts if you're in the area, but that's about all.

My husband and I had lunch here for the first time and it was great. I am 64 yrs.old and as a child I remember stopping at back road cafes like this one where they served just good, down home cooking, Nothing fancy. This little restaurant just brought back so many good memories! However, one does not stop here just... More

So happy to have made the e-x-t-r-a miles to Pottsville (Columbia), Tennessee! Before leaving home, we had read the m-a-n-y positive reviews and had happened to see several "segments" of Marcy Jo and Joey in the Mealhouse kitchen. This was viewed on the Joey and Rory Show that can be seen on the RFD television network. We just had to... More

Made a detour just to eat here. Had read so many good things about this place and they are all so very accurate. Had to wait for a table as they were having a very busy lunch time. Looked around the gift shop and talked to the very friendly employees. Lunch was an awesome hamburger for me and hubby had... More

If I wanted to wait for an hour for mediocre food and bad service, I would have gone to Bob Evans. Not worth the wait.

This is the best place we went to for food on our five day trip to Nashville. It is a ways away from Nashville, but well worth the drive. Meals are home cooked and the staff makes you feel like one of their neighbors. It is very small, but that made it seem so much better. I wish it was... More

I had seen the Joey & Rory show on RFDTV so I was aware of this restaurant. In traveling through I was ready for lunch. I had the daily special of fried chicken, mashed potatoes, green beans and corn and it was wonderful. Good country cooking. Service was excellent even though it was full at noon. I will try to...
