About

This restaurant is permanently closed. Permanently Closed - HHB&R, located in the heart of historic East Nashville, less than a mile from downtown Nashville, has proved a welcome addition to the local culinary scene.

Our first trip to Holland House. Decent location but in East Nashville so parking was limited. Very nice decor but it was very hot day and their AC was not keeping up. A bit warm on the inside. Service was adequate, not exceptional. Quick with drinks and salad but took an additional 30 minutes for entree. My wife really enjoyed her Cobia fish. I ordered a steak that was cold upon arrival but had a very good taste. Overall, the place has potential but for an above averaged price restaurant, they should do better...

The handcrafted cocktails were excellent, and we had high hopes for dinner. Unfortunately, after enjoyable apps (Buckwheat Falafel, Gorgonzola "Stack", and Fried Green Tomatoes), our main courses arrived almost at room temperature. The strip steak was well-cooked and the gremolata was flavorful, but the potatoes were bland and an afterthought at best. The chicken entree was a great idea, but the seasoning was too light and the preparation was uninspired. Although we enjoyed the environment and cocktails, it was not enough to make up for a mediocre dinner.

While our service was great, and the appetizer was tasty, the meal itself was bland and lacking in flavor. I understand why restaurants don't provide salt & pepper (a good chef seasons it for you), I would have given my first born child for something with flavor.

The place looks very cool when walking in the door and our server was super nice. The food was fine. There isn't much of a selection (which I like) but the Brussels sprouts were undertooked and my husbands burger was well done even though he asked for medium rare. The fries were awesome and I enjoyed my pasta. The main complaint is that the restaurant is SO HOT! We were told that the owner is aware of the problem but it's going to cost too much to fix. I do not recommend going during the summer, wait till it's nice out or you'll leave DRIPPING in sweat.

I've always loved this place . The drinks are spectacular and food is, normally. But they got rid of some of the best things . Truffle fries and the charcuterie plate. I've always loved the food but the past two times,have been so underwhelming . The food is just okay . I always brought new people in for great drinks, and great apps. Now I'll go elsewhere.
