This is always a MUST when we visit Nashville. We love the food, atmosphere and service. Next time we visit we will ask for Owen. He was amazing and very personable.

Macaroni and cheese was cold and dry. Had reservations. The restaurant wasn’t busy when we arrived yet we were sat at a table literally right next to the kitchen and bathroom. Country fried steak was good. Food seems a bit overpriced.

Definitely an amazing place! I had the jumbalya which was delicious! Also the bacon wrapped shrimp! The live entertainment was great, a little weird that you have to pay $5.00 pp for it, would have much preferred to just pay more as opposed to feel like i am being Nickle and dimed. Weird pricing menu all together

Loveless never disappoints. The food is always amazing and the service is impeccable. Such sweet, friendly folks. Always worth the trip outside the city :)

First time in Nashville, had to check out The Loveless Cafe that everyone talks about. We went for breakfast and it was definitely worth the drive from the city! Great food, cute shops, great experience!

I've been coming to the Loveless since it opened and it's always an excellent choice for authentic Southern food. It hasn't changed in quality in all of those years and I hope it never does.

I’ve heard that this place was somewhere you had to go to. And I have to say I’m so glad I did. While it’s about 20 min from downtown Nashville it was definitely worth the trip. They brought out the yummy homemade biscuits with 4 different types of jam. They were the BEST I’ve ever tasted!! They have many different things for you to choose as your meal. You can get breakfast all day(I love breakfast dinners).They do have lunch and dinner menus as well. The sitting area was very cosy and welcoming. Don’t miss out!!!

Had not been to Loveless in over 20 years. My memory of this place was HIGH on my expectations. Restaurant did not even come close. Wanted a "small" order of potatoes NO WAY! So I did not get any potatoes which where not included with my omelet. Won't be back, may will try again in 20 years from now.

We were a little concerned when we pulled up that we were eating a hole-in-the-wall. So wrong! Food was great! Our waiter told us he’d be there’til they pulled him off the floor. Can’t recommend it more highly!

Food was good. The waitress came by very frequently to check on us. A little too frequently. It seemed as if every bite, she was asking another question.
