I always enjoy our Artist Colony experience. The restaurant has a country feel to it. The food is best described as country cooking. It is comfort food at it's core. I enjoyed the catfish and the blackberry cobbler is to die for. Don't miss the desserts. They are very good. My wife enjoyed the pot pie. A reasonable price for... More

My husband and I had dinner here on a Friday in October. We arrived just before 5 and were seated right away, but it started filling up fast so keep that in mind! I had the Pot PIe and it was perhaps the best I've ever had! It was creamy and tasted high quality and was the perfect temperature-not too... More

We stopped here for lunch, they were very crowded, had about a 20 minute wait, but felt that it was not bad considering how crowded the town was. Our waiter came, took our drink order and then disappeared, people at next table were sitted, gave their drink order to waitress and had their drinks plus ordered their food before our... More

Charbroiled chicken with bacon sandwich and a Turkey Manhattan on wheat for Lunch this time. Good tasting food delivered timely and prepared as requested via a courteous and attentive waiter. Ambience is nice, inside seating seemed noisy, but we were seated first available outside on the porch with a 35-40 minute wait list, it was a gorgeous Fall Friday afternoon,... More

We visit Nashville, Indiana every year and the Artist Colony Inn restaurant is always one of our stops. We received wonderful service again this year from Mary. We will be back again next year!

My daughter and I visited while traveling out of town on a Saturday morning. This was the only breakfast place in Nashville we found without a wait. The breakfast buffet was very good -- fried biscuits and apple butter! -- and a drink came with for $9. A great deal. I'm only giving them a four because there were no... More

Our waitress was very efficient and nice. The food was good. The host made a negative comment about the shirt my husband was wearing due to him wearing his favorite sports team logo. He needs to keep his remarks to himself. The restaurant is in dire need of updating. The carpet pieces are filthy and stuck to the floor. The... More
