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!

We had a wonderful experience at The Old School. The cocktail options were fun and interesting. The food was truly delicious- one of my best meals in Nashville. Everything is so fresh, and delicious. The servers were great and offered great recommendations where we needed them. It was a cold night when we were there but they have a fun fire pit for s'mores. Beautiful outdoor seating for nicer days!

This place never fails to impress. It was the first day of the new fall menu and everyone in our group of seven raves about their dishes. The pumpkin gnocchi was incredible. Attentive service and an all around first class experience made venturing out on a cold rainy night well worth it

We had a wonderful brunch with my dad’s cousin. She and I shared several dishes (sweet potato fries were standout good!), my husband and son each had the burger and shared a tasty bite with me. My daughters loved their cinnamon rolls, eggs, and bacon. This is a great place to brunch with kids, especially during the jazz brunch on Sundays. The music was great and not too loud and overpowering. There is no kid’s menu but they will serve adult meals in smaller portions and offered sides of bacon and eggs.
