We enjoyed our hamburgers at this little restaurant. The server was nice. The desserts looked delicious but we didn't have room to try.

Thanks Bill for some Thanksgiving cheer! I've eaten at the Cafe a few times and always had a great experience. Best small town diner I've been to!

Attached to the hotel it also is where the hotel breakfast is served, which was good. We had dinner there and it was a quiet little place. We actually played a card game and ate there. When we were there, there was about 10 people....More

I drove over on Sunday morning for the WW2 re-enactment and found it done so I elected to eat breakfast at the Commodore. (I had heard good things about it) I struggled to get my walker through the doors into the dining room where several...More

In the early 1940s my grandfather, Webb Duncan, ran the restaurant in the Commodore Hotel in Linden, Tennessee. Mother worked as a waitress. Last week, I called Kathy Dumont, the owner of the Hotel with her husband, Michael, to ask if the restaurant would be...More

The food was okay but nothing to drive out of your way to get. If you are traveling by and are hungry it will suffice. The service is poor. We had to ask four or five times to get our check.

Southern comfort food with a twist - served in this roadside WWII-era historic hotel. Quaint downtown square location offers a nice stroll to stretch your legs. Locally roasted coffee, Black Jack - homemade Pecan pie w splash of Jack Daniels, or Minnie Pearl's Chess Pie (plus a larger-than-life bronze statue of the Queen of Country Comedy!). House-made "Linden sauce" - smoky-sweet Buffalo-chipotle (since we're 1/3 mi from the Buffalo River) for our hand-patted burgers or hand-cut chicken strips. Speakeasy Bar & Lounge is only full bar within 50 miles. Friendly staff. Locally owned & operated by a Rhode Island couple who relocated to TN for its gorgeous land & natural wonders. Maybe you'll be lucky enough to get a tour of the haunted hotel, and hear a story or two about the underground tunnel to the old jail.
