Great food and ready as promised. Chicken tenders were really good. Cheese biscuits always a crowd pleaser. There was plenty of food for the number of people I was serving. I had never had the banana pudding before - fantastic!

Stopped for a BBQ dinner. I had pulled pork sandwich, and dh had the brisket and pulled pork. I thought that my sandwich and coleslaw were ok, but dh didn't care for any of his meal.

Our waitress was slow to take order, slow to deliver biscuits, no plates to use for the biscuits, heard us discussing how to get wi-fi as... More

We love everything about Jim & Nicks. Their food is good, their service is quick and the servers are very responsive. The cornbread muffins are so good as are the homemade desserts. Good stuff!!

Traveling through Tennessee on our way home to WI. We read the reviews and also asked the Hotel clerk who highly recommended this place. Well worth it. Our server Marshall greeted us at the table with a warm welcome and a handshake. Not something you typically see, it was a great touch. He explained the beers and menu items to... More

Good service as you would expect. I tried the Pulled {Pork Nachos for a change and added the HOT sauce (there's a mild one as well) - very good and lots of it! The HOT sauce was pretty good as well as it was made with habanero chillis!
