    Excellent comfort food. The fried chicken was hot and juicy. My country fried steak was very good. And of course, the biscuits to start were fantastic. The homemade jam and jelly were a great accompaniment. It was a great night out with my wife. After dinner, the shop was a fun place to spend a few minutes looking around.

    Our server had great recommendations and his favorite items off the menu. We tried them and agreed! Highly recommend the fried pork chops! I’d been here has a child and it’s still as good as I remembered.

    I was glad I had a reservation. It was a Monday but people were waiting for 1 1/2 hours for a table. I had fried chicken which was good. I had turnip greens over seasoned so I could not eat much of that. I had fried green tomatoes which were ok. I had a biscuit which was good. Service was great. Two restrooms only so long wait in line outside.

    Catfish and pulled pork very tasty. The fried chicken with okra and turnip greens are outstanding. Chaz our waiter was very very good. He made us feel at ease. Chaz came to table frequently to see if we needed anything.

    Loveless cafe continues to impress me! They have the best staff and the food is always incredible and up to expectations. Loveless is such a family friendly restaurant and I highly recommend coming here for special occasions, with family, or just for a great place to eat. It reminds me of the good southern cooking I am used to back home in the South, and of course their biscuits and preserves are to die for!

    A classic, historic cafe, a part of Americana. The menu choices are meat and veggies or breakfast which is served all day. Biscuits were piping hot and ready for butter and jam. The fried chicken was good. Not all of the food appeared to be homemade. The banana pudding was not good at all, tasted of gritty pastry cream instead of a custard pudding filling. It's a good place to visit and enjoy the ambiance; visit the shops and be sure to take home some of the jam, jellies, bacon and ham that are for sale.

    Every single thing we ordered was delicious. This place lives up to its history and reputation. And to top it all off our server, Anna was literally the best one I have ever had. We wanted for nothing and our every need was attended to before we ever knew we needed it. The service is superb. Great experience all around!

    Great birthday dinner at Loveless! We were visiting from out of state and it was our first time there. The food definitely lived up the hype (the fried chicken, creamed corn and coconut cream pie were fantastic!). Food arrived at just the right time, not too slow and not too fast. Our waitress was so friendly and brought me out the piece of pie for free since it was my birthday. She offered if we wanted her to take our picture which my mom was happy about. Definitely go if you’re visiting the Nashville area. Oh and don’t forget about the complimentary biscuits! If we’re in Nashville again, I would definitely return.
