If you're looking for a family style restaurant in downtown Nashville, IN this is a must visit. It's an historic building with a general store on the bottom and the restaurant above. The menu is limited and a bit pricey, about $10-20 an entree. Portion size is decent. Home cooked old fashioned recipes are great comfort food in a fun... More

I have eaten at the Nashville House several times in my life, but hadn't been here for several years. The fried chicken was good and crispy , the slaw and sides were good. It took a while to get our food. When the fried biscuits were brought to the table, the server forgot our apple butter and we had to... More

I gave it a 3 out of 5 for the entire table. I ordered the chicken salad and it was amazing! However others in my group ordered the tenderloin and ham and cheese and both were just kind of plain. There weren't a lot of seasoning done before cooking. Our waitress was great! She seemed to check in just at... More

It's been years since my last visit to Nashville and I was eagerly awaiting the fried biscuits, chicken and sides at the Nashville House. No trip to Brown County was complete with the requisite visit to the Nashville House. I had been warned and previous reviews had stated that the quality was not what it used to be. Sadly, my...

Ate lunch here prior to an IU football game, as an old friend was visiting from CA and was feeling nostalgic. Just read reviews, and I guess we were just lucky. Our wait was about 30 min. Waited for a table here nearly every visit for decades, and expected one, today, too. The teenaged host was a little awkward, but... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review! We are working on improving the hostess stand/cashier area so that it's not as cramped. We are still making our fried biscuit dough fresh every morning, and we are so happy to hear that you enjoyed the rest of your meal! Come see us again the next time you... More

I visited the Nashville House this October with my family like we do every fall but this year something changed. All the familiar faces were gone, the biscuits were not fried all the way, the fried chicken (a family favorite) was fried all the way to the bone, on top of that, most of our meals were served cold. We... More

I have eaten here many times many years ago. Always enjoyed. We were there this past Sunday evening. Guess the restaurant was crowded all day. When we arrived it was pretty much cleared out. The waiter was not very friendly, seemed very tired and ready to end his day. Ordered meatloaf (3 of us) and it was tasty but cold.... More

We are celebrating our 50th anniversary.  We spent our honeymoon in Brown County. We had our first breakfast as a married couple at The Nashville House.  We returned today for lunch. The decor,  down to the red and white tablecloths, has not changed one bit. This made me happy. The fried biscuits and applebutter were so good. Hot from the... More
