We had gone downtown the night before and had a great time, but we were ready for a little less hoopla. This place was perfect. We had good food, a Chai tea, then later a drink as we watched the two bands that performed. The second band, The Grahams, were very good. First band was ok. We had the grilled... More

We weren't sure what kid's night was, but the band played silly songs (think Casper Babypants - caters to the 3-7 yr old crowd) and ours are much older than that. Great if you have kids that age. But for us, this wasn't the right age for my older kids. That said, they did enjoy watching the little ones dance... More

Had breakfast here. The granola tasted great and was really large portions. The waitress was very friendly and attentive. Location is super cool. Rest rooms have been clean. Parking may be tricky, as they have no own park ground. We've been lucky and parked around the corner on the street for free.

We drove through Nashville on a trip across the country (towing a trailer) and wanted a fun local place to stop and eat. Parking downtown was nearly impossible pulling a trailer. But, The Family Wash came highly recommend and for good reason. The food was fresh, excellent quality and filling. Our server, Allie, was the best. She was super friendly... More

We went to the Family Wash on a Saturday night for happy hour ($2.50 beers, $5.00 wines) and to hear a wonderful jazz band- Crackerboots, whose lead singer- Louella- is outstanding! We were pleasantly surprised that the menu had such delicious entrees. My husband had sweet potato gnocchi with chicken (portion wasn't large enough for his man-sized appetite). I had... More

Soup and Sandwiches on stage! Outstanding food - cafe comfort with a twist, great music, friendly staff, reasonable prices and tasty dessert made this our favorite night out of our recent Nashville trip!

....left as the newest fan of "The Ornaments" and THEE Charlie McCoy! Seriously, look both up. ...and while they may not be playing when you come in town to visit, still swing by and try the burger w/ fries. It's sortof life changing.

This place has a fun atmosphere. I had an excellent chicken pot pie with really good wine. The menu is different. I was so glad because I am so tired of the usual salmon or shrimp and grits. Cute place with live music and a wonderful staff.

Family Wash is a very fun music venue that showcases great and varied talent and good food, reasonably priced food. Some say it's the best burger in Music City (a lofty claim) and it IS good. The shepard's pie is also a menu favorite and there are creative breakfasts served all the time.
