We loved our meal and enjoyed talking with the manager that is from our area in Mississippi. Had the Chicken Daniel and a cup of Gouda and puréed red potato soup, and it did not disappoint!

This was our second visit to the restaurant while passing through Tullahoma. I was determined to find it because our previous meal, a few years ago had been so good,but I didn't remember the name. Happily, from descriptions on Trip Advisor, I took a chance are here we were again, with another wonderful meal. There weren't many people there and... More

Service and atmosphere were very good. Pastry on one appetizer seemed to be food service quality, and seared tuna appetizer was fishy- not sushi quality/freshness. Entrees were a special, where andouille overpowered the main ingredient. Dessert was molten chocolate and quite tasty. We usually patronize the highest rated non-chain restaurants when we travel, but were disappointed with the food overall.

Had lunch with family. Had soup (very rich beef veg.) and chicken salad. Food is fresh and "urban" for this rural area. Took a quart of tomato soup home. Would try again for dinner.

Went here for a business meeting with a group of 8. We were also heading to Jack Daniel's Distillery tour. This older house which was converted into a quaint eatery was a pleasant surprise in this small town. The food was outstanding and I can recommend stopping here when you're passing by or live here.

Excellent food. The chef is actually from France and has brought his expertise to the area. Quaint character and wonderful food. If you are in the area, give it a try. If you live in the area and haven't eaten here - you definitely should!

I spent an evening here while on a business trip with colleagues. They took reservations and accommodated a rather large group. Excellent food. I didn't hear one person who was disappointed by the experience. The entire restaurant is very nice, and has lots of little rooms throughout where they seat guests. As our reservation was late in the evening and... More
