Food was good and very reasonably priced. Our waiter was extremely friendly. Not anything fancy but good food at a very affordable price. Three lunches with three sweet teas $50. I would go again.

We stopped by on a Saturday at 11:00 am. We were interested in both breakfas and lunch. The Blueberry Pancakes were huge. They were filled with real blueberries and tasted very good. We also had the roast beef dinner with fried okra and pinto beans....Roast beef was tender and juicy with a good brown gravy. Fried Okra was hot and good, even in the South okra can be hit or miss but this was spot on. The desserts looked Great but we were stuffed. Definitely going again.More

We were seated at 10:30 and given a breakfast menu. No one ever came to wait on us.Saw other diners be seated and they had food within 5 minutes. After waiting for over 30, minutes we decided to go eat somewhere else.

Everything was delicious, from the cornbread pancakes to the roast beef to the omelet! Our server Keona was excellent and it was only her 3rd day on the job, she is a definite asset to this family restaurant. The owner Jay is also the chef...and he does amazing at both. He came over an chatting quite warmly with us. We were treated like family! Thanks y'all 😊More

Old fashioned, no frills American diner. This is one of the few long time Nashville locally owned places that hasn't been gentrified and over priced common people out. Decent food at a decent price from decent people.

Found this while traveling after spending the night in the Nashville area. Opens at 5:30 am every day (a plus!). Service is awesome, food is good and quick. A little out of the way, but well worth the couple extra miles!! Would gladly spend the...extra 5 minutes each way to eat here again!More

Another great place to eat. Food was very good and service was very friendly. Made us fell like locals. Don’t go here if you want white table cloths and snobbish employees. Food was fresh and tasty all around. Thanks Lisa for great service.

I and my family have been customers of this establishment for over 30years. The food was great the first time and has been consistently just as good today. The waitresses are great !! They are helpful ,smiling, and attentive. The owner who is there every...day always speaks to his customers and tells them thank you when they leave. He always asks were things good. So if you want a great place to get great southern food great southern hospitality from great people come to Jay's.More

We were traveling and looking for a decent place to eat. Walking in, it seemed OK, but it went downhill quickly. I went to the restroom to find one of the two stalls occupied and the other out of order. The main door to the...restroom did not close. When I returned to the booth I saw that the entire carpet was strewn with wrappers and napkin pieces and a lot of debris. Then I noticed a garbage container in plain site of diners that was disgustingly dirty and overflowing with garbage. Finally someone removed the bin and left a lot of fallen garbage on the floor, and returned it with the sides still filthy. I ordered a BLT and it was served on white toast, with barely any tomato or lettuce. I wanted to leave because I was so disgusted with the unattended filth. As soon as we left we talked at length about how the health department should be notified about the situation.More

On the positive side, wait staff was very friendly and helpful. They seated our party of 8 quickly. On the other hand, the food was just average....and really, the steak wasn't even that. Tough, gristly. Prices are reasonable and, yes, you only get what you...pay for.More
