I wasn't crazy about anything at this place. The food was marginal, but the atmosphere felt grimy, cramped and it just wasn't relaxing to visit.

We went to this restaurant with a group of people upon recommendation from a friend that had been there before. The decor was quite eclectic and strange, a bit ragged. I was a little leary but we were with a group. I guess they are famous for the pot pies and shepherd's pies. My husband and I shared a chicken... More

Went here with some local friends. I found the place a little raw, but that's probably par for course. The salads were fantastic. I had the mixed green with Grilled beets. Plenty bug enough for the really hungry. I also had a little of the vegetarian pot pie which was also tasty. No need to add anything to either. The... More

We were a little early for the live entertainment, so I can't speak to it. I did like the atmosphere except perhaps for the strange art for sale. Very eclectic place and the meatloaf was yummy! We did not leave hungry.

Suggested by our vacation rental host as a funky place to get good down home comfort food, we wandered down to this cute little place for a delicious supper. The atmosphere was definitely funky and the food was just like mom cooked it! We had their famous shepherds pie, which did not disappoint, along with a chicken pot pie...also quite... More

Had dinner there on a Friday night at 8:30 PM. Cool little place. Live music. Good atmosphere. "Morty" was out waiter and did a good job. Food was very good.... More

We went there to enjoy some live music in Nashville. We were not disappointed with a great band playing rhythm and blues with talent. The food was also really good, we were 7 and every one of us enjoyed his meal. The cherry on the top was the beer really well made. The waitress helped us choose it by letting... More

Ok so after a big road trip or coming from the other side of the world like us , just mellowing out with a relaxed atmosphere, good beer and homely comfort food is like going home to Mums. Sue had the half Chicken with the bacon peas and mashed potatoe. I went for the Shepherd pie with spinach, garlic topping,... More

We were there on a Tuesday night, which is pint and pie night. That means that you can order a pint of beer and a shepherd's pie for $11. Two people at our table ordered that...one got the meat version, and the other ordered the vegetarian version. Both enjoyed their meals. The portions are large. I ordered the chicken pot... More

Have never been to Nashville before but will definitely go again! The town has an eclectic mix of neighborhoods yet is modern urban in many ways. This restaurant, recommended to us by our hosts, is tucked away in East Nashville, a re-gentrified area of the city. A Laundromat (!) in its previous life, it only has seating for maybe 60... More
