This place has a fun atmosphere. I had an excellent chicken pot pie with really good wine. The menu is different. I was so glad because I am so tired of the usual salmon or shrimp and grits. Cute place with live music and a wonderful staff.

Family Wash is a very fun music venue that showcases great and varied talent and good food, reasonably priced food. Some say it's the best burger in Music City (a lofty claim) and it IS good. The shepard's pie is also a menu favorite and there are creative breakfasts served all the time.

Great beer and cocktail choices.. They have good but we just had a snack that was tasty. The night we visited there was an awesome band playing with no cover. Check out what is playing. Nice, friendly bar,

This unassuming gem had everything we were hoping for a in a music venue in Nashville. Laid back atmosphere, reasonable prices, tasty drinks and food, and an amazing live band.

What a great find! They were able to squeeze us in last minute, and I am so glad they did. Get there for HAPPY HOUR! Half priced beer, half priced snacks. Excellent vegetarian food, excellent catfish. Everyone had a great meal. The Shepards Pie (vegetarian with lentils) was a hit. The Fish and Grits came with the Herb Gravy -... More

I was shocked. Nice service. Very friendly. Funky cute inside. You can watch all the EN action if you sit outside. I tried the vegan shepherds pie. It was okay. My husband agreed mine is so much more tastier. Will be back.....

I had been to the old Family Wash location and thought it was "so-so". They have improved the restaurant in every way with the new location. My wife and I love the bar area and the wait staff at the bar in particular. They are super attentive and very friendly. The vegetarian shepherds pie is my favorite and my wife... More

Another gem in East Nashville, this hot spot is located on Main Street. Comfort food menu, with live music stage. Also has bar seating available. One of the few places around town (there are a handful surprisingly) with a coffee shop embedded in the venue which functions as a stand alone as well. One downside: parking lot is small and...

Had this awesome little place recommended to us by our host. We were told the food was great and you should catch some good music. It's a converted auto garage done just so well with some super decor. We got shown to a table 2nd row from the stage, brought water and drink order was taken. We were made to... More
