Harvest at Homestead
The Harvest culinary team pulls from Tennessee culture--and from our inherited legacy of culinary generosity--to bring friends & family together over expertly executed dishes. This is the Marshall’s take on a farm-to-fork restaurant that curates fine food from ingredients plucked straight from our backyard plots.
The experience was great. These folks have it together in providing good food with at home ambiance.
Beautiful, historic farm only a short drive from Nashville. This is our favorite restaurant by far!
Nice ambiance, the food was average, a few cold vegetables, the steak was good but terribly small and definitely not really worth the price.
Good food, fun location (we ate in the bar area). Good variety of different items on the menu and well made cocktails. I would say our service was very underwhelming (had to go to the bar a couple times to ask our server for something). Would have been understandable if super busy, but that was not the case. Would go back.
Our first trip to Homestead Manor was good. The restaurant is split into separate dining rooms and the one we were seated in was empty on or arrival and lacked a little atmosphere. It soon filled up and felt warmer and more comfortable. The food was nice, some more than others. The pizza was extremely average but the short ribs were very tasty. The chicken that came with the farro was tasty and they had a nice wine and dessert list. I would go again, maybe in the spring.
Excellent food. Restaurant signage needs lighting on southern side of entrance and lighting for the ramp for disabled. They were very receptive to input. Will definitely go again. Brussell sprouts DIVINE; sweet potato gnocchi great too.
Delicious wood fired taste! Our dishes were just succulent!
Amazing atmosphere. Loved the bar and the property is very cool. All the ingredients are locally sourced and the food was excellent. The price was a little on the high end but compliments the service and quality.
Even though our server was on her second day at Homestead she did a fine job of explaining the menu, giving us the history of the artifacts in the room (flags) and taking our order. She made sure we were satisfied with our meals and continually checked on us to provide drink refills. My wife had the oyster appetizer with trout for her entrée. I had the seafood gumbo and blackened scallops. I am not a big fan of grits or fried greens, but enjoyed both with my scallops. We finished off the meal by sharing the Banana Pudding dessert. We thoroughly enjoyed both the meal and conversation with both our waitress and her trainer. We look forward to the next change of menu so we can plan our next visit.
Fantastic restaurant. Highly recommend eating out by the bar (it’s a separate building). The Scallops were delicious. They were not spongy and the greens and grits served with them were out of this world. great oyster appetizer as well.
Love this place. Never disappoints. Great food and the servers are always fun/friendly.
Lovely place, great service, delicious food. The biscuit platter was amazing!
Excellent all around!
The decor is clever and attractive, but the room we were seated in was very noisy, and the crowd was dressed in golf shirts, shorts and T-shirts. I guess that is the Tennessee version of "business casual." We arrived early in hopes of going to the bar for a cocktail, but we were told that the bar was too crowded and we could not go in. Instead we were shown to our table and ordered a cocktail called a Kir Royale, but they did not know how to make it. So we had Prosecco instead. We ordered our dinner and a bottle of white wine which was served warm. My husband ordered his pork chop with grilled veg instead of brussels sprouts which he hates. The chop arrived on top of a mountain of sprouts so we asked the waitress to return it and swap out the sprouts. When it returned the chop was so tough he could barely cut and chew it. My scallops, grits and greens were delicious, but overall the evening was disappointing. The waitress tried hard, but the kitchen let her down.
We had not dined here for awhile but had heard there was a new chef so decided to try it again. We had a great waitress named Grace and were seated in the library as requested. It was very warm in there so may not do so next time. However, after I mentioned my concerns about the special, the chef came out to speak to me about the special which was seafood on squid ink pasta which I have tried before and did not like. He described the dish and the pasta in detail. He also responded to my daughter's concern about too much blackening on scallops. Both entrees were excellent and we were glad we went with his suggestions. My husband had trout which he said was just ok. But the three of had an excellent time and will return.
We had a reservation, it wasn't busy but still had to wait a short wait and the hostess didn't really seem to know what was going on. Our waitress was alright but our drinks took too long to reach us. Overall I feel like you would go there to experience the history of the property.
Highly recommend this place for any occasion. The service was excellent and the food was really good.
The food was good, the location is nice. Amanda was awesome. She was friendly and helpful. The music could be a little classier, but not terrible. The filet was on point.
Always good food and service. We have enjoyed the seasonal menu throughout the year.
This rates as one of my top brunch recommendations in the area. Seem to learn something new about the history of the property every time we visit. My favorites right now include the gumbo (which is on my top five anywhere) and the shrimp and grits (also top five anywhere). The biscuits are very unique and must-try. I'm not a Bloody Mary person, but had several people with me who appreciate them and they raved.
The ambiance is great. The food was good though one of the appetizers wasn’t quite warm enough. They were more than happy to bring out more that was much better. The weather is colder and with it being an older house it was chilly inside sitting close to a window.
For us, HM is hit or miss. This time my husbands pork chop wasn’t done.
Good food, good atmosphere, quality staff. Accommodated severe allergy with support of what was safe to eat in menu.
Pizza and burgers were good. Sides on Chicken dish were not to my liking, although the chicken itself was very tasty.
Always excellent - beautiful atmosphere especially at Christmastime. History is fascinating and staff is engaging. Food is unique and amazing. The bar in a separate house is warm and friendly with great food as well.
Food was great service was lacking. They sat us in the bar area. Was not pleased with that.
Food was delicious and each room of the home is decorated in a historical theme. A wonderful combination of history and wonderful food. A great place to take guests!
It was one of the best brunches I have had in a long time. The deviled eggs and fried oysters were delicious. The atmosphere in a 200 year old home makes the meal even that more special. We will be back!
Always a great tome at The Manor.
Harvest is usually spot on, but we had a mediocre dinner this last visit. Appetizers (ham&cheese, Brussels) were outstanding, but the salads and entrees were not good. Beet salad had 4 half wedges of beets the size of cherry tomatoes and the goat cheese was powdery and tasteless. Short ribs (3 small cubes) came out tough and cold and the scallops 3) were overdone and grits were gummy compared to previous times. We’ll be back for brunch but may be not for dinner. Also with a reservation, we were seated in the atrium instead of the main house (even though it was almost empty). The staff mentioned an event going on at the barn, but that’s no excuse for poor food prep in the main dining areas.
Being new to the area, I was looking for a place to take my wife out for her birthday. The place came highly recommended, but the experience was the opposite from start to finish. When we walked in, two people were talking and didn't acknowledge us for almost 5 minutes. After being acknowledged, we were shown to our table where there was some confusion surrounding if we were in private seating. Once resolved, it took just over 10 minutes to have a waiter approach our table. The irony is it wasn't that busy.
We ordered drinks and when arrived, it was incorrect. We ordered food and when arrived, it was also incorrect. The jr. servers wouldn't acknowledge when they came by the table. When we finally addressed with the waiter with the comedy of errors of our experience, he apologized and left. A manager came by shortly thereafter and handed us our check. While she did graciously discount the bill, I felt as though I was being asked to leave and made mention of it to the manager. She apologized as well. We paid our check and not one person said a word to us as we left.
It was a very disappointing experience and hopefully the management reads this review to ensure others aren't treated this way. They should be embarrassed and we will never go there again.
The food was creative and delicious. The oysters for our appetizer were delicious and cooked to perfection. The salad featured lettuces grown on their farm and was light and full of fall flavors. The Pork entree was our favorite. Expertly seasoned and cooked, accompanied by some roasted brussel sprouts. The braised short rib was tender and full of flavor as were the grits. We shared a dessert special that was amazing.
Each of the dining spaces are all different....our favorite being the Library, a more cozy and intimate space.
The service was great and all the staff was friendly and efficient. We plan on coming back and eating in the cellar and enjoying the chef's creations.
The food was amazing and the service was great. We had never been to Harvest at Homestead before and our server offered to give us some history of the mansion if we were interested. However, when we asked questions about the property and decor, she didn't seem to have a lot of knowledge. We still enjoyed the meal and walking around the property after dinner. We went on-line to look up the history once we got home from dinner, but we kind of felt like the server should have had a little better knowledge, especially since she offered that to us at the beginning of the meal.
My sister was visiting from Fl and our evening experience was amazing. As always the food was fantastic and every bite was delightful. Our waiter was always so energetic and gave us a tour of the house. Really set the night off for her bday dinner. My husband said his only recommendation is cocktails that were made using actual ingredients and not mixes. There was no Tabasco sauce for his Bloody Mary (lol). Next time I will have him bring his own 😀😀. Wonderful evening and a special thanks for making my sisters bday special.
Best food in the area. Never disappoints. The
Happy Hour deal that runs til 7:00 is something we always take advantage of. We were there to celebrate October birthdays. The Brussels sprouts appetizer was a home run & so we’re the scallops. We always reserve a table in the bar. I ❤️ that room. Get to Homestead if you haven’t been
homestead manor has fresh, quality food - not processed crap like you get in chain restaurants - ask for Tony - he is an amazing server!!!
Fabulous food and service, will become a regular!
Hats off to the new chef 👨🍳! We enjoyed our flavor-filled meals very much!
Fantastic food - the best we’ve had in the greater Nashville area since we moved here several years ago. Beautiful old manor, tastefully and uniquely decorated. Splendid, efficient, yet very friendly, service.
