Sunny dining room felt homey. Menu adequate, but my vegan cousin could barely find something to eat. Service pleasant. Food was decent, but not particularly inspired.

We choose this restaurant due to the fact that they had outdoor seating and it was a very nice evening. The service was very good. The restaurant and outdoor seating area were very clean. The menu is not extensive, but there is a reasonable selection to choose from. Their homemade soup is very good. I would recommend this restaurant for... More

The breakfast buffet was delicious, with a wide variety of foods to choose from. My favorite was the fried biscuits and apple butter. Plus it is super affordable!

The Texas Sheet cake was fabulous! The pecan chicken was good as were the mashed potatoes. I'm not a fan of green beans almondine, but it was ok. Our server was super nice for supper. The chairs are very uncomfortable and the restaurant was pretty warm. Breakfast was ok for a buffet style. Our server was very nice, but the... More

We ate here twice during our visit to Nashville. It could be cozy for two or a larger group of 20/25. The food is good at a reasonable price. Catfish is one thing they are known for. Also their sweet potato fries known as sun chips, which are served with a sweet dipping sauce. I could make myself sick eating... More

We were there during a busy week-end so we expected a long wait. We were very hungry and excited to have a home cooked meal. We liked our food but we did not find it spectacular and we were a little disappointed. Our service was on the same level as our food. I would like to try their breakfast and... More

Four of us met here for lunch. Service was very good and so was the food. Ended up coming back the next day for dinner. There was a total of 10 of us and the food was great. Again server was great.

Sunday, August 28, 2016, approximately 12:45pm. For my Mother's 88th birthday celebration we decided to go to Colony inn restaurant. This turned out to be a big mistake. The host (who I failed to get his name) was very rude and obnoxious to the elderly. (1) When we called the day before about making a reservation for our party of... More
