Very hospitable

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... read 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...

Great food, especially the baked goods - all made fresh every day. Order from the breakfast menu if you can. It's a pretty small place, but worth the wait if you have to - we got there about noon on a Saturday and only waited two minutes.

as I had seen this café on TV and I was going to be in Columbia Tennessee I swung by for breakfast midweek. It was about 830 in the morning and there was no waiting as several tables were open. Some of the customers were locals, which is always a good sign! the coffee was good, and the breakfast was... More

We stopped at Marcy Jo's for lunch on our way to Florida. Very much enjoyed the atmosphere and the service. Marcy was wonderful and patient with my children, posing for pictures and answering questions. The food was a little pricey but absolutely delicious.

We loved that this was so quaint -- just a very small little country restaurant. We waited about 45", and we understand that is a short wait. Our food was great. Wait staff was very accommodating. We'd definitely go here again!

My wife and I had breakfast at Marcy Jo's on May 12, 2015. What a treat. Marcy was on hand and so friendly. The food was superb, down home cooking. Marcy was a treat to be around. Great sense of humor and friendly as a country cousin. We had such a great time we hated to leave. A delightful place... More

Very friendly staff and good food. It's not your tipical eatery but it has real country charm with many pictures of country singers and memorabilia. It's worth the trip if you are in the area.

We visited Marcy Jo's on the day we were going to a Joey and Rory concert. I had a hamburger which was very good and large. My husband had a BLT which he said was good and large also. I had the coffee which was fine. Service was excellent. The only negative I could say was they only served soda... More

While on our way to the Joey & Rory Farmhouse Concert, we stopped at Marcy Jo's for dinner. The fried catfish was very good and the pecan pie was also good. It was just a neat place to stop and visit. Would go again. Our only complaint was that we were seated and had already got our tea when a... More
