We had heard the Pine Room had done a face lift and transformed their identity, but little did we expect the changes we found. Gone is the smokey bar atmosphere with typical greasy bar fare. Now a nonsmoking, clean inviting environment with friendly service is in place. They serve organically grown Fishers Farm beef and pork. The craft beer selection was great and included both local and out of state brews. The food was all served hot and was very tasty. The Pine Room brings the dining options in Nashville to a new level that has been much needed.

My wife and I went Friday night and were seated promptly on our arrival. The tavern is more tavern than restaurant. It just happens to have good food. You must be 21 to enter. They have a good selection of wines and beers as would be expected but I ended up getting an iced tea.

I ordered the pasta shells in a sherry sauce. The flavors of the different mushrooms played well off of each other and the sauce. My wife ordered the shrimp Alfredo and she was quite pleased with the flavor and quality. She also got a tea with her meal and for the two of us, the total before the tip was $40.66.

I would recommend this restaurant.

First of all, you need to find the place....it's on the southside of Indiana Hwy 46 just east of Nashville. Best way to find it is to look for the Family Dollar (not Dollar General) and it is next to it.

Great food, great wait staff. Great chef (brought in from Bloomington, we are told) and the reason I believe many people rate other eating places in Nashville higher is because they're easy to find, and the Pine Room is tough to spot.

From a burger and a beer to complicated entrees, this is the spot. They are only open for dinner, so plan accordingly. The Pine Room was once somehere else in town and was a tough biker bar. But it has grown up and it is grand!

Horible horrible service from manager. Don't think they wanted a group of 16 40-60 year olds. We agreed to set in 4 booths and pay with one bill. Place was almost empty on a Sunday early evening. A couple of our group asked again about separate bills and was told no . They said ok but they wouldn't come back again. Then they were asked to pay their bill and leave. They complained that they had not yet finished their drinks and that they were not paying the additional 20percent tip. The manager then told rum that they would pay it or she would call the police . She even went on to say that responsible adults call ahead and make reservations. Then they asked all entire group to leave. Hard to believe we had such rude service. Glad to spend my money at a another place that wanted our business.

Went there after an IU football game in Bloomington. We heard it had a good selection of draft beers and good food at a reasonable price.

I gotta admit it was kinda strange listening to long hair classical music while the blue grass band set up to play in a restaurant next to a Dollar General store.

However, I had the Short Ribs. Came with spinach topped rice (maybe some melted cheese?)


One of the best meals I have ever had.


Yes, in little ol' Nashville, Indiana.


Nice selection of microbrew drafts with a nice selection of bottled microbrews as well. Another reviewer had said they were picky and liked import microbrews. I don't know what they are talking about. If they knew anything about beer they would have known that the Pine Room had a very fine selection of some of the best microbrew beers available. Some were even from near by.

Go there. Order the Short Ribs. You will not regret it.

Can't wait to go back.

Wife had the fish n' chips and said they were great.
