Great place to eat before or after a tour of the Belle Meade plantation. The food was delicious especially the desserts.

Our service by a young, black
Our service by a young, black grad. student in Ed. Psychology at TSU was very good. She was knowledgeable re: the dishes and made good suggestions. Very professional. I'm glad the chef encourages sampling of dishes by the servers. the chocolate bread pudding was wonderful! The baked beans were tasty and different. I think the menu offers good choices for the cost.

The Harding House could have
The Harding House could have been any place. There was really nothing that 'set it apart' to make it quaint. The ambiance was BORING. The food was awesome, but for a restaurant set within The Belle Meade PLANTATION I was disappointed. I had never been and took my best friend who was visiting from out of state and although the service was very good, it was FAST, I mean, it was OVER quickly. Like eating at a FAST FOOD restaurant instead of a quaint sit and bask in food and fellowship period type eatery.
Prices were a bit high but one would be willing to pay if the whole experience would have been more "PLANTATIONy" feeling. I will probably not return to the restaurant.

This was the first time we
This was the first time we used this service to make a reservation--it was good knowing we had a table ready when we arrived at the Belle Meade Plantation. Upon running late, we called the restaurant and they gave us directions and assured us our table would be waiting. 15 minutes later we arrived and got a table without problem--it was probably helpful that we ate after the lunch hour rush. Place was clean, atmosphere and staff were pleasant, and the signature Grilled Pimento Cheese Sandwich was DELICIOUS and large enough that we shared it. My friend loved her herbed grits too. Thanks for providing this service and allowing us to experience one of the Nashville area's finest restaurants.

We had nontraditional varieties of eggs benedict. Both styles were well presented and delicious. The service was good and we never were made to feel rushed.

I had lunch here before doing a tour of Belle Meade Plantation. I ordered a cup of vegetable soup (vegan) and a salad tossed in champagne vinagrette dressing... it was fantastic! Highly recommend if you plan to stop off to tour the plantation.

Brunch at HH was a pleasant surprise. A friend and I wanted a quiet place to visit with yummy food. It was a Sunday, so we wanted to make a reservation. HH fit the bill. It was comfortable, quiet, and the variety of menu choices was impressive and delicious. Enjoyed it thoroughly. We weren't rushed, which was nice too. Staff was pleasant- although they did seem to spend an inordinate amount of time setting up for a large party nearby which seemed to take everyone's time and got noisy. The server said no menu substitutions when my friend asked for a biscuit instead of toast, which seemed a bit unnecessary. But the food was good, and got, and we agreed we'd both go back again.

Brunch with Mother
We had a lovely experience at the Harding House restaurant. The service was excellent, the food was delicious and the room was clean and well appointed. I would definitely go there again and would be interested in having events there.

The service and food were up to their usual standards. Our server was reasonably attentive and cheerful.

Beautiful, charming, yummy!
My dining experience at the Harding House was truly fabulous. When my Aunt and I went, it was quite busy, and therefore the service was rather slow, but the food was excellent! Would definitely recommend this place to my friends, and plan on returning sometime soon!

Luncheon at Harding House
I made my reservation on line which was very convenient and when we arrived our table was ready Everyone was friendly and we had an excellent server. Having eaten at many places in Nashville I felt that $31 for two Cobb Salads and an unsweet tea was a little expensive-which did not include the tip. The food was fresh and good and I would recommend it to others that are planning to tour the mansion if they need to eat.

The Harding House at Belle Mead is a must lunch experience for those visiting Nashville. I planned my Nashville sight seeing so I would be at Harding House for lunch and was not disappointed! Our service was excellent! The fried green tomatoes are by far the best I have eaten. These are served with a dipping sauce and chow chow. I had heard so much about this restaurant and I was not disappointed!

History of the South
On a whim we decided to visit the Harding House Restaurant at Belle Meade Plantation. I went to Open Table and booked a reservation online for 2:30pm. It was 1:00pm when I made the reservation adn we were seated promptly at 2:20pm. The atmosphere was right in line with a vision of the old South in the 1800's. I wished they were playing Classical Music or somethign for fitting for the "period" other than Rock and Roll. The food was well presented and I would certainly eat there again. I am a local resident and I was at peace there and look forward to making it a regular lunch spot.

I had made a reservation in advance in case the lines would be long. We arrived early from our plantation tour and were seated immediately with no wait. I was glad we did because the place packed within 15 minutes. Even if we had to stand in line, this place is worth the wait. The food is fantastic and prices are very reasonable. I will go back again and bring family and friends for a great dining experience. Hats off to the Staff and Chef at Harding House!

Family & Friends
My daughter and I came to Tennessee for a special vacation and were joined by some friends. When she told us about Belle Meade Plantation, I immediately checked to see if there was a good restaurant locally that we could go to after the tour. After looking online, I decided to make reservations at Harding House. We were very pleasantly surprised at the ease of adding to our reservation when our friends confirmed they would go with us. And even more noticeable was the variety of food and how tasty it was. We really enjoyed our experience, and I will definitely refer friends who go to the Nashville area.

Fabulous food. The wedge with blue cheese has caramelized onions and home made sesame crackers. The wedge was almost 1/2 head of lettuce. Fresh hand breaded chicken strips and home made shoe string fries were a perfect entrée. We ended the meal with Yummy Jack Daniels Chocolate Bread pudding. We will go back again we were THAT impressed

A neat little place
We visited Belle Meade and decided to eat lunch at the restaurant while we were there. They weren't very busy and we were a little late for our reservation from taking the tour but the hostess assured us it was no problem. Our waitress, Candice, was very nice and efficient. I had the soup and salad combo with potato soup and a house salad. The salad was good, it had walnuts and a champagne vinagerette. The soup was a little grainy but still tasted good. My sister had the turkey and brie sandwich and sweet potato fries. She said the sandwich had too much cranberry and the fries were a little salty. My mother had the cheeseburger and shoe string fries and she said both were excellent. Overall it a nice little place to stop in!

We made a reservation, and then plans made us late. I called, and they held our table, worked with us, and gave our guests a fabulous memory.

After tour brunch
Brunch at Harding House was absolutely delicious. The fried green tomato with pimento cheese sandwhich was surprisingly delicious. I am glad that I followed my waiters advice. The staff was by far the most attentive that I've experienced in quite sometime. The art work was in the dining area was beautiful.

Lovely lunch spot
We were in Nashville for the weekend and had plans to tour the Plantation. We timed it so that we would have a chance to eat here, as we had heard it was good. We made a reservation and when we arrived on time, we were seated immediately. The menu was varied, and there were many delicious sounding items that we had to choose from. All were delicious. Recommend!

Might be one of the best brunch menu's in Nashville - soooo many choices - everything was great!
