I found out about the Peanut Shop from an article about things to do with kiddos in Nashville. It did not disappoint. My kiddos gobbled up the large malted milk balls and, honestly, so did mama! Whopper's has NOTHING on these amazing and delicious gems. We actually made a special trip back just to pick up some more before leaving... More

We usually don't make it downtown Nashville much as we don't work in the area and don't want to deal with the tourist. Met friends for the monthly art crawl that takes place. It's been years (to many to count) since I've been to the Arcade downtown. Ran across this little gem on our trip down there. Was greeted with... More

Made a special trip to the Peanut Shop on Feb 7th before going to the Predators hockey game. Drove around the block several times trying to find a place to park. Finally has success, ran into the Arcade in search of the Peanut Shop and.... CLOSED! This was 1pm in a Saturday!!! Very disappointed

I have worked in buildings next to the Arcade for years in downtown Nashville and each day I would walk to The Peanut Shop to get my milk chocolate malt balls and my roasted peanuts. The store is very old and has an original look to it. You have to remember this store opened in 1927, I believe it was,... More

After reading the reviews on TA, we felt we had to go....... Only to be very disappointed. The tiny shop had an odor that resembled rancid and the peanuts that we did buy were stale. Did we miss something here so as to not appreciate it the way others have?

How good are their nuts? The line during lunch is usually out the door. You can't go wrong with this place for a tasty snack. It's like stepping back into childhood. I love this place and the staff is always full of smiles.
