On top of the favorite list. We love this place. Everything is so fresh and expertly prepared. Service was top notch and made sure our wine glasses were never empty.

We had the omelet, the farmers breakfast and the cinnamon bun.

Their eggs may be the best that I have ever had. The ham was salted to perfection and the cinnamon bun was to die for. Great place for a brunch with a date or family. Good service as well!

Highly recommend this place.

We went there on Valentine's day, and we were both underwhelmed. I am normally not critical, but it was a let down.

We forgot to ask for no hot sauce on the rabbit and they made us a brand new one when it was too spicy to eat. Outstanding service. The prices are high but the food was excellent.

Food, as always, was good, but live bluegrass made the experience unpleasant. Not the music itself,which was really good. But the addition of music, and the resulting necessity for everyone at every table to talk loudly ,made it impossible to enjoy the quiet, unhurried experience of food and conversation. we have come to expect there. Just because we live in Music City doesn't mean we want a concert every time we go out to eat. I love music, but we come there to enjoy a great meal and conversation with friends. Plus, the music/dining combination was presented to us only when we arrived, no choice given. Not a surprise we appreciated.

Our group was seated in the bar area. Food was delicious--cheese board with beet jam (!), sweet potato salad, pork shank, pot roast, and trumpet mushroom stroganoff--all wonderful. And cake! We tried all three... Service impeccable. Live music was a nice surprise for us since we usually sit upstairs. Definitely try this option again. Definitely worth the trip out on a cold rainy night!

There is so much to love at the Old School Farm to Table... The atmosphere, garden landscape, location, and historical value is absolutely delightful and so easy to appreciate. The shear tastiness and freshness of the dishes are beyond description. You just have to visit and dine there for a grand eating experience. I also love the entertainment options the Old School sponsors often. Especially fond of "Sunday Supper" --- a dining experience you'll be a long time forgetting...

The omelette was filled with so stringy root like filling that looked like carrot or other root vegetable roots. Very unappetizing to look at and nothing appealing about the flavor. The server was very friendly and attentive. Coffee great as usual.

Catcher in the rye cocktail was delicious! I ordered the pork shank and it literally fell off the bone. We also had assorted cheeses to start out with and they were very creamy and flavorful. Definitely will be coming back.

Some great dishes and some average dishes. We were a party of 8. We ordered several of the sweets for appetizers but instead of suggesting how many we would need the server just brought one of each - it would have been helpful if she had better informed us. One dish was exceptional - the Shepards pie dish. the rest were pretty average. Good Bloody Mary's and other interesting cocktail. It is about 20 minutes outside of downtown - rural country setting. I think the best season would be summer and fall as they have their own garden - which was bare now (December/Jan). I can't say the reception was exceptionally warm - more perfunctory, although our server was very friendly, but in general the VIBE was not that welcoming, which was disappointing after reading the marketing materials online.

The sweet potatoe dish was outstanding. The cocktails had too much bitters. I drank the catcher in the rye but could not finish the Aslan. The cocktails need work. Had the porkchop in the past and it was amazing. I tried the porkchop again on this visit and it was salty. The honey pie was not so good. Maybe I chose a bad night because my past experience has been wonderful. Will give them another try in the future.

We had a lovely evening listening to The Farmer and Adele for Christmas. We really enjoy Old School Farm and are so happy they have vegetarian options. Our only complaint is that the food is quite salty, which detracts from the flavors and leaves us with salt bloat for a day or so afterwards. I wish they’d hold off on over salting and allow the true flavors of the foods to come through. Otherwise we really enjoy everything about this place.

Most Nashvillians don't realize how close this place is, the address is so misleading. From 12 South, Goodlettsville, Franklin and many other locations it's a 20 minute drive. The address kept us away until the last few months and we've been back four times since. Guess we are making up for lost time. There's really nothing we don't like about the School House. The food is wonderful, the staff top notch, the location is perfect and the their mission makes me happy. So next time you want a great meal, hop in your car and head to Briley Parkway, it's just over a mile off of the Ashland City exit. You will be glad!
