It's been quite a while since we last visited The Nashville House, but being in town on business this morning, we decided to drop in for lunch. The decor was unchanged, pleasantly rustic in Brown County style, and comfortable. Our server was pleasant, but perhaps just a bit uninformed...might have been a newbie. We both opted for the soup-&-sandwich, with... More

I have been visiting the Nashville Restaurant for over 50 years...first n 1962 when I was in college at IU in Bloomington. It was a stop along the way. Hwy 46 wasn't open at that time and we had to take the "backroads". It was a pleasant stop. When my husband and I got married in 1970, we vacationed in... More

Very high priced menu. To order the fried chicken you have to pay for half a chicken. Who eats a whole half of a chicken?

We (my wife, my sister and her husband) were here for a few days in mid November. A local recommended this historic restaurant (fine rustic ambiance) to us. Service was OK. I have to rave about the fried biscuits and the reuben - both were excellent. The other menu items we sampled were pedestrian. I would come back for the... More

We certainly are sorry that you did not have an enjoyable experience at our restaurant. It is certainly not our policy to microwave food and our servers usually strive to provide fast as well as friendly service. We hope you will give us another chance in the future. More

If you're looking for a family style restaurant in downtown Nashville, IN this is a must visit. It's an historic building with a general store on the bottom and the restaurant above. The menu is limited and a bit pricey, about $10-20 an entree. Portion size is decent. Home cooked old fashioned recipes are great comfort food in a fun... More

I have eaten at the Nashville House several times in my life, but hadn't been here for several years. The fried chicken was good and crispy , the slaw and sides were good. It took a while to get our food. When the fried biscuits were brought to the table, the server forgot our apple butter and we had to... More

I gave it a 3 out of 5 for the entire table. I ordered the chicken salad and it was amazing! However others in my group ordered the tenderloin and ham and cheese and both were just kind of plain. There weren't a lot of seasoning done before cooking. Our waitress was great! She seemed to check in just at... More

It's been years since my last visit to Nashville and I was eagerly awaiting the fried biscuits, chicken and sides at the Nashville House. No trip to Brown County was complete with the requisite visit to the Nashville House. I had been warned and previous reviews had stated that the quality was not what it used to be. Sadly, my...
