I ordered the cheeseburger and fries; the burger was huge, I had a choice of cheese; and there were more fries than I could finish.

I could even add a beverage ($2.50 sweet tea) and still spend less than at Margaritaville.... More

After we toured the Fontanel Mansion, we enjoyed a very good Sunday brunch at Cafe Fontanella. My husband's omelet was delicious and my eggs benedict was wonderful.

I was told that they didn't take reservations on concert night. When we arrived the area was teeming with concert goers. Happy hour was in full swing so we... More

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
