    Good experience - I did expect more. It was close to downtown. The food was so-so. Nothing great, but nothing terrible. I would compare the atmosphere to a 50s style ihop or chili’s.

    Felt short-staffed in here on the evening we dined. Really pleasant server but the food was incredibly slow coming out of the kitchen. Everyone enjoyed their meals except me. My patty melt was served in (barely) toasted bread as opposed to grilled rye and the hamburger patty was barely half the size of the bread. Poorly executed by the kitchen, I’m sad to report. The lemon icebox pie remains spectacular and undefeated in the category of desserts. Really stupendous. We will be back, in hopes of a better experience.

    This was our first time visiting. It is a very cute restaurant. We went on a Friday night so service was a little slow. My group ordered everything from breakfast to dessert and everything was amazing. We will definitely be returning.

    What a fun atmosphere! My dad and I visited this restaurant after he saw it featured on "Tennessee Crossroads." The place was packed so I do suggest getting a reservation. There were a lot of groups (bachelorette parties) and families. The staff was kind, the service was speedy, and the food was reasonably priced and delicious! *Check the Nashville City Saver book for coupons (we got a free milkshake-- yum).

    Celebrated my birthday with lunch at Elliston. So much nostalgia. Great food as well. The chicken and mashed potatoes were heavenly and Im not a fan of potatoes. Best I had ever eaten.

    The diner vibe was nice. I’d go back to try some dessert. We had breakfast and it was fair at best. My scrambled eggs were served cold. The cheese grits were thick and gummy and unlike any grits I’ve had before…not a fan. Looks like they have some great pies and shakes.

    Service was great given the lunch time crowd had packed the place. Food is good but slightly over salted. Great restoration of a Nashville Classic I remember from the sixties. Parking is only weakness but I’ll be back.

    We came here as a recommendation for our family trip to Nashville! It ended up being our favorite dinner and dessert on our trip. The place is really cool 50s style diner. Service was excellent! The food was home cooked! The meat and 2 turkey and dressing was soooo yummy, Then Sundaes and a vanilla ice cream soda! Yummy

    Had reservations for 5 but staff wanted to seat us at a table for 4 which would not accommodate. Staff would not allow us to sit at one of several larger tables that were available. Walked out and will not be back. Very unaccommodating staff. Reservations are worthless.

    If you live close, it’s a descent place to eat, but not worth driving 32 miles for. I would say the experience was average all in all.

    Great diner vibe, and the food was pretty good--2 of us had the meatloaf+2 sides, another had a burger, MIL had the turkey & dressing, and daughter had breakfast (pancakes, eggs, sausage). The 2 yo had a pancake and fruit, both of which were easily adult-sized, but he ate it all!

    Cool place with a dinner vibe. We had the turkey and dressing with squash casserole, white beans and okra. Very good, especially the cranberry sauce that accompanied the turkey. Banana pudding was great. We will return for more yummy.
