Having eaten at Jim n Nicks on Charlotte Pike in Nashville a few times and loved it, I was excited to see this location near relatives we visited in Smyrna. No crowd, seated quickly. 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!

So delicious and very different flavors! Mustard potato salad, delicious smoked chicken, Slaw was unique and fresh. Cheese biscuits had a sweet touch. Beans were great and cookies so good w a chocolate and toffee flair. Good good stuff and I'm picky with barbecue!

Stopped in for lunch thinking "overpriced big name chain BBQ". It was anything but!!! Had BBQ chicken and fries. The white sauce was wonderful and had a kick and complemented the red BBQ sauce. Fries weren't greasy at all. Got a basket of cheddar biscuits with honey butter first and they were oh so good. Marshall was our waiter and... More
