My son and I wanted a good breakfast but not a long wait at some “brunchy” place. He told me he knew just the place right in the neighborhood. The service is quick and efficient. The essential first cup of coffee is delivered within minutes....More

Went there for breakfast, which was really great. Good selection on the menu, coffee was only okay - just your regular american coffee. Staff was friendly and always refilling your coffee. Only downside are the restrooms. The last time I saw something like this was...More

We happened by Tennessee Grill on a Sunday morning and were amazed at how crowded the place was. Obviously, the regulars in the neighborhood know a good deal and a good meal. We ordered breakfast specials and they were made to order and substantial. We...More
