Chaz is the best!!
Amazing, Kenna was the nicest waitress I’ve ever had in my life.
Wonderful! Fresh hot biscuits can’t be beat!
As always, Loveless never disappoints!!
Nice Sunday late lunch with friends. Excellent attention from our server, and food came out fast. Good friend chicken; excellent creamed corn, biscuits, and sweet tea. Comfortable seating; would’ve preferred to be a little more distant from the next table.
Birthday lunch for my husband. We had a wonderful and quiet lunch. Very pleased.
We made reservations which were timed nicely upon arrival. It was our first experience and we weren’t disappointed. The biscuits were everything we expected (amazing) the portions were huge and the service/refills were quick. The pork was delicious (we had during breakfast) the outside experience was fantastic and fun too. Nice historical restaurant with great food!
This restaurant was recommended by a couple of different people, so we decided to try it. We were not disappointed! The food was very good. I do suggest making a reservation if possible.
Lovelace has always been one of my favorite places for breakfast in Nadhville. My son is in town for the holidays and it’s a tradition to have breakfast at Lovelace. We are a huge fan of the biscuits! I love them with butter and the peach jam. The country ham is always a must. My son always adds a fried green tomato/pimento cheese biscuit to his order. The service was outstanding.
Everything was amazing . My waiter Elena was the best . So nice and pleasant !!!
Great place to visit
Delicious! Cannot recommend enough. As crowded as they were, the service was fantastic and the food was absolutely delicious!
April was fantastic. She made it happen when I needed a table for 5. Thanks!!
Great as usual!
Not as good as it used to be. Used to have larger menu selection and food was better
Great food! Wonderful service! Love the "Hams & Jams store!
I am so glad we tried the Loveless Cafe. You never know what you’re gonna get just based on reviews alone but it lived up to the hype! Food was delicious, staff was friendly and atmosphere inviting. And this coming from a Texan raised on home cooking. Definitely worth the drive and taking time to visit.
Couldn’t say enough about the food and service. This is a must eat place!
We have been going to the Loveless for years. Last night’s service and food were excellent! I wish all my restaurant experiences were as good as our experience was last night at Loveless!
We went there for an early dinner. Surprisingly not crowded. Server was very attentive. Food came out very quickly. Great as always.
Fried chicken pieces were small and over-cooked
My friend and I are locals. Loveless remains to be a special place. My friend has been going there since childhood-maybe 50+yrs, & me~ 24yrs. The Loveless is still nostalgic.
Our server, Robin was wonderful ~attentive & sweet!
Thanks for a most enjoyable lunch! Amy
Excellent ..highly reccommend food was excellent..will return
I had wanted to visit Loveless Cafe for years. Due to my wife visiting the area to run a marathon, I finally got to visit. It did not disappoint! Everything was great.
Greet biscuits and service!
owen was the best waiter we’ve ever had. the service & company was beyond our expectations! such a great experience!!
We had blast
Always great. Try the biscuits and homemade jelly.
The fried chicken was very good but the fries were cold. We asked for hot fries and our waitress complied. We were put in the corner between the kitchen and bathroom and there was a small odor. The bathroom definitely needed some attention. It's going to be awhile before we go back.
Great place. Food as excellent!
Dinner with family
I was so very pleased with everything about Loveless! The food was amazing, the service outstanding, and the shops were delightful!
Due to the pandemic the server told us their menu was much smaller. So we were disappointed but still found items to satisfy us. The sweet tea was weak this time, especially by southern standards. Overall still a neat place to eat and visit!
We had a family gathering with 20 people and we were attended to as though we were the only customers in the restaurant (we were not!). The food was good, serving sizes generous, and our server was attentive. It was a great evening.
Great Service and the Biscuits were the best We have ever had!
Server was fabulous…went extra mile!
Our server was fantastic! He was very busy, but communicated everything clearly and concisely about how everything would happen. He was fun to joke with and got our order perfect. Attentive. Our food was perfect for the Loveless Cafe experience and the biscuits were ON POINT as usual.
a great place, with loads of history, and more important great tasting food!
The food and staff at Loveless are great. I can see why it has become a tourist attraction. The staff genuinely enjoy their jobs and it shows. They're smiling and cracking jokes. It's a great environment to spend time and have a delicious meal.
GREAT little southern joint with the most kind staff and homey ambiance. The hash brown casserole is mouth watering and don’t even get me started on the heavenly biscuits and preserves. Definitely happy that we carved out the time to hit up this precious little gem on our long weekend trip from MI. Definitely worth the stop!!
