Food was wonderful and our server, Skye, was amazing! We had the watermelon ribs and the meat literally was falling off the bones. Biscuits and jam was perfect appetizer and dessert!

What a great place to eat in Nashville. Great food at very reasonable prices. Most expensive dinner item $15. Biscuits with jam and butter as soon as you're seated. Steak and biscuits were wonderful.

We'd always wanted to stop here. We went for a late lunch and had to wait about 10 minutes for a table. Hubby ordered the country ham, and I ordered a Combination plate of fried chicken, BBQ. The vegetable sides were good. I had enough chicken and BBQ to take home. The biscuits are as great as everyone says as... More

A busy busy place but worth the wait. Really good food. The fried chicken was awesome and the fresh biscuits and home made jams were out of sight. Tried breakfast the next morning and was excellent. Friendly staff. Austin waited our table and did a super job. They do take reservations so make this a priority. Enjoy!

So I had a cousin in town, and since everyone thinks along with The Bluebird, this is the place to go I took her. We arrived around 11am on a Friday and when I asked the wait was 1 1/2 hrs...really for country cooking? Now I am a native, and have been here many times over the years. It was... More

This is a small hole-in-the-wall type restaurant with a large following. Was highly recommended by a lot of people on our visit, and for good reason. The restaurant doesn't look like much from the outside, but once you're inside you find a clean, homey kitchen atmosphere with plenty of room to spare. The service was top notch, and the food...

We got here on our way to Memphis after reading some recommendations. This is a lovely quaint place where you will have to wait before getting in, sometimes for a while. This being said: the breakfast at the Loveless Cafe is by far one of the best ones I´ve ever had. Moist crumbly biscuits, tasty ham, great service. Try the... More

Great family restaurant with plenty of biscuits, butter and jelly. Try the fried chicken or fried fish. or go out on a limb and try the chicken livers, great. Farm home style of dining experience, really need reservations or be prepared to wait a spell. While waiting there are shops to shop and purchase your hometown friends treasures to take... More
