While staying in Brown County we had several meals here and surely wished we would have booked it for Thanksgiving dinner! Parking on the street.

We had supper there in November. Food seemed a little basic. Maybe what we ordered. Not as crowded as past years we visited.

The food was good, and the menu had a lot of options. I had the marinated chicken breast with baked potato and house salad. The ranch dressing was very good. Service was excellent and the waitress was very friendly. The space was roomy and had a nice atmosphere. We will eat here again if we come back to Nashville.

I love the sweet potato fries! The wait can be long at peak times, but the food is good and worth it. Put in your name and check out some of the little shops just next door while you wait.

The wait here is long during the busy season, but moves through quickly. We had an hour wait, in which we shopped the close by shops. The dining room was quaint and comfy. Service was quick, but not always explained. My friend and I both had the soup and grilled cheese. The soup really hit the spot, but the grilled... More

Rustic atmosphere. Catfish and vegetable lasagna were very good. No alcohol served. Service was friendly and efficient. Prices are very reasonable.
