Super cool place for all day dining

Loved the breakfast at this restaurant. It's a large space that has breakfast, lunch and dinner and live music in the evenings. Also a small store with coffee and cool t-shirts. The grits with greens and beer cheese and egg were incredible. The cauliflower appetizer was to die for. Super friendly... read more

First, I feel I should say I seldom write negative reviews. In this case, it is warranted. I will forgive a lot, but poor service is inexcusable. We arrived and were told about the wait of 30 minutes, which was not a big deal. So, we sat at the bar and had a drink. it was a good drink and... More

We stopped in on a Saturday morning for some breakfast/lunch (not brunch). We found a spot to park across the street. Parking can be a little funny since they've got a small lot, but that's how much of East Nashville is. The building is new. The space is clean and open. They've got a nice sized stage towards the back... More

The live music made the experience for my husband and I. We went on a Friday night around 8 for dinner, and of course had to wait a while for a table. It was fine though, we found two seats in the bar area and had drinks. l had one of their cocktails, the Rita I think, which was delicious.... More

I love a place that serves breakfast all day! I had the stoned grits, tasty and a little different. The grits are made into a grit cake. The sauce was delicious and the grits not too heavy and egg was done perfectly. My son had a salmon special. He said it was really tasty. It was hard to choose because... More

I was here a few weeks ago, I really enjoyed my breakfast. . Food is great as well as the service. They have different kinds of coffee, and a great variety of food. They also have live music not bad at all.

The new wash is larger, more open and a great place to hear music! You can pretty much bet on awesome, fun music played by some amazing musicians any night of the week. The employees are fun and they gave a great variety of beers and even cocktails on tap, which is fun. The food is h.e.a.v.y., though. Really heavy.... More

Come to East Nashville for a great meal. Lunch was so good we returned for dinner. Shepard's Pie, fried green tomato sandwich, cabbage grilled salad and Thai shrimp special all good, tho the tomato soup was way over seasoned. Music started at eight Monday night, excellent atmosphere and staff in a great neighborhood. Check it out!

The new location on Main Street has only improve this placed. Nice place for brunch on Saturday - menu is simple but most everything is good. Stay away from the Chicken Pot Pie unless you are a big tarragon fan - too much for my taste. But, their famous Shepherd's Pie makes up for the over spiced Chicken Pot Pie.... More

My husband and I absolutely love this place. The reasons are two fold .....great food and live music. There have been some improvements and additions with the move to the new location. The Shepard's and chicken pot pies remain unchanged....wonderful as always. There have been several things added......the Napa grilled cabbage, fried green tomato biscuit with pimento cheese, and meatball... More
