Fairly unique menu! I enjoyed the cream of asparagus soup and the quinoa salad.

The afternoon plan was to take my grandaughter to Cheekwood to see the Spring flowers. We wanted to have a nice brunch en route and the Harding House fit the bill. We had plenty of good options but between us we settled on a chicken salad croissant, Harding House salad and Moroccan Chick Pea soup, finishing up with the skillet chocolate chip cookie. All were delicious and the server was excellent. We look forward to going again.

Biscuits are worth it alone. Buttery, rich, flaky and light each bite, but substantial overall.

Omelette was a little dry and unremarkable. I'd go for skillet instead.

My mother and I had lunch at Harding during a weekend trip to Nashville. It was convenient since whe were spending the afternoon at the Belle Meade Plantation. The food was good, although we paid a lot to add 3 shrimps to the salad. I mostly enjoyed the apple cobbler, the crust was divine! The menu is limited and the decor it's very simple. There were no runners nor flowers like you would see on their website. Just the tables and chairs. Overall is a nice place to grab a bite while visiting the Plantation.

The food was delicious but the service was just ok. I didn't have a spoon to stir my coffee. We were delivered our appetizers prior to receiving plates. I received my soup (which was delicious) and had to wait to catch my waitress's attention to ask for a spoon. She handed me a teaspoon and I had to ask if I could have a soup spoon instead. My coffee wasn't refilled until the end of the meal when I asked.

We enjoyed a relaxed Sunday brunch. Waffles and omelets were tasty. Restaurant was full but not overcrowded. We had a reservation but they had some openings for last minute diners. Would go again.

The mimosas and cheese grits were great. Sweet potato fries very good. Omelets were good; however, one was cooked as ordered. Biscuits taste greasy....too thick and not flakey. The service by Lisa was great as always.
