    Even though their legendary biscuits tend to be the main focus, don't miss out on other items such as the fried chicken and homemade desserts. [Eater 18 Member]

    Place is known for their biscuits and fried chicken but I got grilled catfish and turnip greens and it was absolutely slammin. You can't go wrong here with their diverse southern home style menu!

    There is no biscuit quite as famous as those at Loveless. Try the assorted jams, jellies and preserves as well as the country ham. Go during the week to avoid the wait! Read more

    The biscuits are amazing! Mix it with the butter and jam. All of the portions are huge so I’d recommend sharing. The pork is tasty! Comes on top of a corn pancake that soaks up all the meat juice.

    The fried chicken and biscuits with homemade preserves are some of the best you'll find anywhere. Lines get ridiculously long - think several hours - so get there early, especially for a big group.

    Loveless is a bit outside Nashville so expect about a 20-minute drive from town. It is also very busy, me and my wife arrived about 10 am and had a 2-hour wait to get a seat. It is worth it though!

    OMG that ham.. also upgrade your side to the fried green tomato pimento cheese biscuit!! You’re welcome. Fried chicken is just like my grandmothers. Great preserves. Eggs were the only thing avg.

    The wait was not too bad: more than 1hr for a group of 8 on a holiday weekend. The fried green tomatoes were my favorite, crispy and fresh. But the “famous” country ham tasted very salty and cured.

    While they are easily the best part of the meal, don't fill up on the homemade biscuits and jams or you won't have room for any other food!!!

    Watch the biscuit maker make biscuits. A lost art. Worth the wait for seating. Enjoy the giftshop and grounds while waiting. A true Nashville tradition.

    Eat a slice of pie 1st! Get Taylor as your server he is very entertaining and interesting to talk with during the meal. Fried chicken, fried catfish, creamed corn = awesome biscuits are from heaven

    This place was great and worth the wait. Find the country fried steak on the dinner menu and ask for it in a breakfast combo. Try ordering off the menu. Their chicken and waffles are a great combo.

    The waffle is delicious. Best biscuits you'll ever eat. Expect to wait about an hour, but there is plenty of shopping during your wait

    Ate here for breakfast. Come early or prepare for a wait. We waited almost 2 hours. Service was fast friendly. Tons of choices serve both breakfast and dinner all day long. You'll leave full.

    Tell them JBL sent you. Chicken and Biscuits are out of this world - and they've been doing it for more than 60 years! You can't leave Nashville without a meal here.

    This place is just amazing. Friendly and nice, and big portions. If you are visiting and only get one meal at this place, get the sample platter. I had fried chicken, bbq pork, and catfish.

    Biscuits, to die for with homemade jams. BBQ pork very good, famous ham was salty as hell. Hash brown casserole was not as good as at Cracker Barrel. Staff was fantastic! Maybe chicken good?

    Country ham, Southern fried chicken and homemade biscuits and jams are the staples. Call ahead if you can… the wait is known to get crazy at this tourist attraction! Read more

    Had a group of 8 very picky people(someone always dislikes something about a place) but everyone loved Loveless Cafe. Which to be honest has never happened before and we eat out every week together.

    Anything here is good, and all meals come with their amazing biscuits. What makes the biscuits extra amazing however is the preserves. Definitely try the peach.

    Honey fire BBQ chicken, creamed corn, hash brown casserole, creamed spinach all excellent. Fried okra and country fried steak are mediocre. Kids chicken fingers can feed two.

    Everything is amazing here. Best place to bring a friend from out of town or out of the country. Loveless cafe shows the true country side of nashville.

    The HOT chicken and waffles were great! So you know, it is bone-in chicken, though. Their biscuits are incredible, too. Drinks need improving.

    Barbecue pork and eggs is not something you'll find on most menus, even here in the South, but Loveless has it, and it's really, really good. And the biscuits are outstanding.

    Absolutely awesome! Use the call ahead seating, it puts your name on the seating list and helps reduce your wait time; however, they stop if it becomes too busy.

    Biscuits are good, kids cheeseburger was great. A lot of food for the price. I split the smoked pork chop plate with my wife and it was plenty.

    You don’t need to order too much food because they’ll keep bringing free biscuits—and that’s what you really want!

    The biscuits live up to their hype, and the side dishes are to die for. They almost overshadow the entrees.
