The homemade bread and dipping oil was wonderful! We ate dinner here three nights in a row and had something different each night. Everything we had was well prepared, reasonably priced, and enjoyable!

I am local to the Whitescreek, TN area & I have stopped in to sit at the bar on my way home from work during happy hour & enjoy an appetizer on occasion.This wide open space of restaurant / bar is far from typical Southern culture. Employees are more interested in discussing internal politics & paying far more attention to... More

The pizza was really good, but the calamari was not great, and the live music was way too loud. It was the only restaurant near the Inn, though, so we had no other options.

We stayed at the Inn at Fontanel so we walked to the restaurant. The restaurant itself was average, but the food was good and we loved the live entertainment. There is a nice walking path behind for a leisurely stroll after dinner.

Salad and pizza was good with quick, attentive service. A country feel not too far out of Nashville. Nice place to walk around before or after eating. There is also a gift shop, winery and distillery adjacent to the cafe. There was an amphitheater where music programs are held, although we didn't see/hear one.

A wide variety of delicious food with excellent service! Speciality drinks using their on-property Pritchard Distillery liqueurs were refreshing!

My wife and I had lunch here while waiting to take the tour. We both had hamburgers--good not great, fries good not great. Server was good but the kitchen took some time for two burgers and fries. Overall an average place, not bad, not good.
