Everything in this place is old, very old. At each booth is a personal juke box which hasn't been updated in ages. I hadn't seen one of those in ages! Service was slow but the staff was very busy and very friendly. The food was...More

Stopped for a quick breakfast instead of paying high prices at our hotel. The eggs & bacon were good and we felt satisfied for the value.

From the outside this looked like a great place, however when entering the interior was a bit worn out and the lighting was very industrial. Food was fine but the waiters were a bit slow with the orders and refilling coffee. It has some of...More

Elliston Place Soda Shop is a classic, old time shop. If you have not been in a few years, it is almost exactly the same. And the food and treats and the same too - simply great. It is a fun place to go for...More

I'm Celiac and ordered the hamburger without a bun and French fries. No bad reaction to the food. Service and food were both good. Wish I'd tried a milkshake!

When you walk into the Elliston Place Soda Shop, you'll feel as though you stepped back into the 1950s. Not much has changed there over the years--except the prices. Booths have individual juke boxes. Ours was taped up and little worse for wear, but it...More

We went for a late lunch and it was delicious. Had good service, and my turkey club was great. The French fries were yummy too. Loved the throwback decor and I heard the milkshakes are amazing. Recommend!

No, they are cool to look at, "still have the song cards from the 70's" but they don't work anymore

As the oldest continuously operating restaurant in its original location in Nashville, Elliston Place Soda Shop has been part of the lives of Nashvillians and visitors since 1939 - more than seven decades. We don't feel like we are running a museum but we do feel a strong sense of stewardship to the character of Elliston Place Soda Shop. We believe we can have a menu that both feeds your sense of nostalgia while still being relevant to current tastes. The Soda Shop is known for having great milkshakes and fountain treats but also serves one of the best cheeseburgers in Nashville. We also have amazing salads and soups and every day we feature "meat & three" selections... items such as fried chicken, meat loaf, turkey & dressing with all your favorite southern side dishes. Breakfast is served everyday starting at 7am.
