I understand they have relatively new management, certainly since we last went, a number of years back. The food was good, although, think buffet of southern comfort food. There is a salad bar, as part of the buffet, and then there were some other veggies,...More

In planning my visit to Nashville from Utah, my bestie and I hunted for a fun, afternoon outing. We decided to give Chaffin's Barn a try and boy did we experience a treat. It was a Thursday afternoon, so the senior citizen crowd was raring...More

Saw Southern Fried Funeral. Buffet was excellent, wait staff attentive and theatre production hilarious. A great way to spend an evening with good friends.

Chaffin's has a great buffet dinner including southern favorites, prime rib, and a fantastic salad bar. But that's just the beginning: The show is filled with very talented performers from both local and far-away stages. Best of all, the stage is so close, you feel...More

Food and a good show. Buffet was pretty good, but the show was a phenom. We've even taken large groups from work! If you like live theatre, you'll love this setting. Fun!

We've been to Chaffin's Barn on several occasions usually to see Rom Com type plays. Sister Act was the first musical we attended and let me tell you, it was 3 hours very well spent! Not only the acting, but especially the singing was incredible....More

Questions & Answers
I have a family of 12. Six fairly well behaved adults and 6 VERY well behaved boys whose ages range from 10 down to two 2 year olds. WE will be in Nashville from SAturday June 6 thru Sunday June 14. The only night time activity we have scheduled so far is the Grand Ole Opry on Tuesday June 9. We do not need transportation--we have that down to a science. Instead of silver spoons, our boys have been born with Disney World Passes in their mouths and we are usually there 2-3 times a month. The boys are used to eating in nice restaurants and we have very seldom had any trouble.I would love for this to be something we could all experience together since this is their first trip to Nashville. My husband "stumbled" on the last day of the CMA Fest when we came thru with our Corvette Club, and this will be our 5th year so we are excited about trying something new, I am so looking forward to hearing from you. Times, dress requirements, sample menues and prices would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much
