This is a great little gem located in East Nashville. They have a generous selection of craft beer and though we didn't eat the menu looked great. Jami was our bartender and she was wonderful- attentive, kind, friendly, and a wealth of knowledge regarding the area. We will definitely be back next time we're in town!!

Great music room. Great foodie spot. It kept much of the character of the original while still finding ways to accommodate more groovy people. The garage coffee partnership is a wonderful addition. When traveling visitors want to see where the locals hang out, this is where i take them. Kudos to the chef for allowing customizing of the delicious shepherds... More

Family Wash is a great funky place to hang out and have a good meal. They seem to land some really interesting music acts and their somewhat uncommon menu is a treat (I recommend the Shepard's pie). On top of all that, the people there are great folks. Go check 'em out!

The Family Wash is very different. A hip place with a very different menu and odd style of live music. Meatballs were very good but my wife got the chicken pot pie and although it did not mentioned sweet potato, the pie had a very sweet taste like sweet potato so beware. It's not your normal chicken pot pie. The... More

The atmosphere was wonderful and the food was really good. They have a large dining area and a smaller area that they called the 'Fish Bowl'. A Large bar for happy hour and a live band on various nights. They had something on the menu that was surprising but very tasty - Fried Chicken Skins. The restaurant serves breakfast and... More

Went on a Saturday afternoon. Seated immediately by a friendly hostess. Wait staff came almost immediately with menus and suggestions when we asked. She recommended a house cocktail on tap when one of us ordered a Manhattan. The house cocktail was excellent! Cant remember the name of it. sorry. Ordered beer cheese appetizer. It was wonderful. Fresh and hot. Loved... More

Even though their coffee maker broke, they served us some great alternative. Breakfast items were delicious, service was fast and very friendly. Definitely a plus for the East Nashville environment

We got seated right away, and our server, Jake, was most pleasant. The food, once we received it, was very good. I think our ticket got behind a large party, so it took quite a while. The manager made it all better for us, so we were quite happy with the visit.

We liked this spot but it's pricey and you don't get a big portion. We both big eaters and we left hungry still. They had an awesome Bloody Mary though. It was $50 for two drinks and two meals

If you're heading out of downtown for a day in East Nashville, make it a point to stop at the Family Wash/Garage Coffee for breakfast. Family friendly, good down home cooking.
