Stopped here for brunch on a Monday morning while visiting Nashville. They got us in fairly quickly with only 2 of us. We only waited 5 minutes. The food was very good. Pancakes of course with hash browns. Parking is all paid parking.

Was disappointed with the place after it came so highly recommended. The food was plentiful but very average. I would compare it to a Denny’s but a lot more expensive... wouldn’t wait in the extremely long line again.

Supposedly, the Nashville location has different owners and is no longer affiliated with the one in Gatlinburg, TN. I did notice a few menu differences and overheard a waitress tell a neighboring table that some items are no longer on the menu since the change....More
