My experience here is always pleasant. I frequently have lunch here. The shrimp and grits is unlike any other, and though it’s listed as an appetizer, it makes for a quick light lunch option.

My husband and I visited the Old Hickory Station back in November for our wedding anniversary. The atmosphere is great and the food was amazing. And if you're lucky...the train just might pass by during your time there.
