My family loves to get the Country Fried chicken dinner! The coleslaw is superb! The waiters and waitresses are very nice and generous.

I have always wanted to try The Nashville House because I love the smell of their fried chicken whenever we have been walking through that area. We went with our friends, there were 7 of us, 4 adults and 3 children. The server was amazing!!! She made great recommendations, was so helpful and accommodating. You had better come hungry because... More

While in your country store over the weekend the young gal working informed us that you use canned applesauce to make the applebutter with, not fresh baked apples at all like your label suggests. Please tell me there isnt any truth to this. Please tell me you haven't been deceiving your loyal customers all these years with baked cinnamon applesauce.

Thank you for your inquiry, Jolean. We are very proud of our apple butter. Our secret recipe is actually a family recipe. It takes many hours of work to create the homemade apple butter that we sell. We assure you that we have never sold "cinnamon applesauce". The young girl that you spoke with has never been involved in the... More

We were trying to decide where to have dinner and my daughter chose here. Pricey. I tried the fried chicken, with mashed potatoes and gravy, and green beans. I also had a salad and we had the biscuits and apple butter. The biscuits were delicious! The fried chicken was good as well and the salad was large. However, the raspberry... More

We had breakfast here. There were only two people there including us. That's not totally unusual, since it was in the winter time and off-season. The breakfast menu is extremely limited, and all al a cart. I ordered scrambled eggs and they came absolutely browned and chopped up, not really scrambled. The cook came out and he was Nice and...

It's been quite a while since we last visited The Nashville House, but being in town on business this morning, we decided to drop in for lunch. The decor was unchanged, pleasantly rustic in Brown County style, and comfortable. Our server was pleasant, but perhaps just a bit uninformed...might have been a newbie. We both opted for the soup-&-sandwich, with... More

I have been visiting the Nashville Restaurant for over 50 years...first n 1962 when I was in college at IU in Bloomington. It was a stop along the way. Hwy 46 wasn't open at that time and we had to take the "backroads". It was a pleasant stop. When my husband and I got married in 1970, we vacationed in... More

Let me first assure you that our recipes are still the same, the apple butter is made in house and biscuits are made fresh daily. As for our sides, we... More

Very high priced menu. To order the fried chicken you have to pay for half a chicken. Who eats a whole half of a chicken?

Thank Cindy S
Frank A R, Owner at Nashville House Restaurant, responded to this review

We are sorry that you are disappointed with our prices. We believe that our food is quality and our prices reflect that. It is true that we offer a dinner portion of 4 pieces of chicken for $17.95, however, we completely understand that that might be too much for some. For this reason, we also offer a luncheon portion of... More

We (my wife, my sister and her husband) were here for a few days in mid November. A local recommended this historic restaurant (fine rustic ambiance) to us. Service was OK. I have to rave about the fried biscuits and the reuben - both were excellent. The other menu items we sampled were pedestrian. I would come back for the... More
