About

***** Hi If you would like to book one of our igloos please email us at pinewoodigloos@gmail.com.

More than farm-to-table, Pinewood Kitchen is a table on the farm that serves up Southern comfort food made from ingredients free of GMOs, pesticides, and other harmful additives and preservatives. The majority of the
food served in the restaurant has been grown and raised on the land w/ wellness in mind; each dish is prepared to order to accommodate all guests with food allergies and dietary restrictions, as well as vegan, paleo, and keto lifestyles.

You will dine on produce that were picked from the farm the day before. Owner and Chef Mee McCormick describes what flavors to look for and what order to eat the food so it’s good for your gut.

Alongside the restaurant, the Pinewood Mercantile showcases a carefully selected collection of clothing, jewelry, kitchenware, home goods, and groceries such as McCormick’s homemade soups, jams, sauces, beef, pork and
Pinewood Farm honey.

Our server Hayley was awesome. She was super busy but managed to serve us with a smile. It seemed that it took abnormally long for an order of fried green tomatoes to come out and then shortly afer our food came out. I got the fried checken with summer squash and tomatoes and green beans with purple tomatoes. The sides were better than the chicken. LOVED the sides! The chicken was flattened too much and dry. The other order was a fish basket and 2 sides. The fish was cooked perfectly. Best tarter sauce around. We ordered GF strawberry cake for dessert. It was delicious. This was the most expensive lunch I ever had. $10 for a piece of cake, knowing that you can get 8 slices from a cake...inappropriately priced. It was abit noisey, but nothing we couldn't deal with. The lattes were great, but, again, overpricedas they were not large, they were in a small coffee cup. Outside of the prices and some dry chicken it was a positive experience thanks to our server!

Overall good experience. Enjoyed the food. The staff were very attentive. However, the cost of our lunch for two was way out of line as far as my budget goes.

Amazing!! So worth the drive for the experience. We sat outside and had a wonderful meal. Appetizers were outstanding - fried squash, brussels, and hush puppies were all delicious. Highly recommend making the beautiful drive from Nashville/Brentwood via Highway 100. Great date night with another couple. Highly recommend!

Great drive from Franklin. About an hour to get there down country roads. Very casual and welcoming.
Grab a beer from the cooler and enjoy fresh farm to table.

Our table was ready when we arrived. The service was great and the food was amazing. We got dessert to go because we didn’t want to skip dessert but we were so full. It was a nice treat later that night.

There were 10 of us. 5 adults and 5 kids. All adults thought food was just ok and overpriced. Kids all got chicken fingers and all 5 could not eat them as they were too tough and chewy. Outdoor seating is 10 feet from highway and VERY noisy and actually dangerous. Would not return or recommend.

I so enjoy Pinewood Kitchen and their healthy eating and delicious food philosophy. Gluten-free options abound, farm to table and a fun casual atmosphere make this well worth the 1 hour drive to dine. It’s a favorite with friends and family.

Absolutely amazing food! My son and I have a dairy allergy and the staff was so accommodating, we could order anything off the menu! The food was outstanding and the dairy-free and gluten-free cake slices was the best dairy-free cake I’ve ever had! We had to drive an hour to get there, but it’s definitely worth the drive!!

Great food. Gave waitress a list of my food allergies & she helped me find foods I could eat. The atmosphere was like going back in time - to an old country store. Drove 1.5 hours to eat there and it was totally worth it. Can’t wait to try some of Mee’s recipes.

Cozy place with good food. Fried chicken. Was not as flavorful as expected...needed salt added.

Lots of loud vehicles & motorcycles going by detracted from the ambiance.

Excellent service, delicious oat Latte, salad vinaigrette, combo of quinoa/chickpea/mushrooms/sweet potatos/strawberries, burger & chips.

Dessert was to die for: strawberry lemon cake with lemon curd & vegan creme cheese icing!

I wouldn’t call this a farm-to-table place. The food is fine and the service is great. Maybe I’m missing something but it’s not a farm.

Location is rural surrounded by beautiful rolling hills and pastures. Quaint building with indoor and outdoor seating. Everyone who works there is friendly and accommodating. Food was delicious! It’s a bit of a drive from Nashville but we’ll worth it for the experience. Love this place and highly recommend.

A hidden gem!! Staff was outstandingly friendly and the food was even better. Fresh local ingredients with flavors to die for. Nearly every condiment made from scratch which is a signal that they aren’t messing around. The catsup was phenomenal, and I’m not like a catsup fan or anything, but this stuff is bomb! I ended up buying a pint to take home. If you are close enough to consider going, just do it. You won’t regret it.
