We were looking for a place away from Broadway and this place was rated high on OpenTable. The food was very good. The catfish fillets were pretty small but the quality was great. It’s a small place and doesn’t hold a ton of people so the noise level was very low.

Excellent restaurant within walking distance to the hustle of Broadway. Food was amazing, service was outstanding and we would definitely visit again. Highly recommend a visit to this little gemstone.

Atmosphere, food and drinks were great. Pricing was good but a tad high. Service was slow as it seems they only had two servers working with a full restaurant on a Friday night.

While service was fine, most of the food ordered by 4 of us was terrible. Fried chicken was so dry it was almost inedible. Country fried steak was tough @ tasteless. The Greek salad was awful; chicken dry, feta cheese impossible to find. My sister said it was worse salad she ever had. The fish & chips were rated as very good as was cole slaw.

We had a reservation, but we had to wait for a table with all the walk-ins.
What's the point of OpenTable or "taking" reservation if you don't hold a table???
Would not recommend unless your time has no value.

Wonderful southern food! Had the fried fish and red beans and mashed potatoes and it was just like sitting down to my grandmother's dinner table. And the service was exceptional. I'll be back!

We celebrated my husband’s 50th birthday in Nashville and his family came from different parts of the US to surprise him. It was important to have a place where we hear each other the first night in Nashville and just have some time to catch up. 417 was the perfect place! The food was so good and the ambiance was perfect. In fact we loved it so much several of us came back for brunch on Sunday! I highly recommend 417. The service was so good! Leslie and Mike were fantastic and made sure we had everything we needed. Both visits were exceptional!

the food was good but nothing special - my mom got a omelette and were not really sure if there was even any eggs mixed in because it seemed like just a bunch of everything thrown together and then tossed on the plate. not very impressive but not the worst i’ve had just okay. was expecting much more from the reviews and awesome looking menu

Stopped in about 1pm hoping to catch some turkey and dressing with a few sides on a Sunday, maybe a pork chop or something off the breakfast menu. Ended up having chicken and waffles which was very tasty. For those who like southern fried chicken breasts this is the place. Others serve it up Nashville hot n spicy but this place has the actual chicken fillets battered up like grandma would make. Save room for the banana pudding. It’s homemade in the kitchen nearly daily and is the best banana pudding we have had in town. I think they got the recipe off my grandma somehow. Nicely done all the way around.

The biscuits are fantastic. I mean biscuits better than biscuit love. Other than that, not so great.... undercooked pancakes, overcooked eggs, rubbery bacon. Seriously, if you are not going for biscuits, just go to waffle house. Very friendly staff!

The lemon blueberry pancakes and the service saved this review to a "3" . . . it seems the prices are increasing and the quantity / quality of food is decreasing. We were served the saddest portions of breakfast potatoes. My husband got the steak and eggs (over medium). His eggs had runny whites and the steak was small and tough.

Our breakfast was $43 before tip and we did not have any alcohol.
