    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!

    The best biscuits and blackberry jam EVER!!!
  • Matthew S.
    Great biscuits and fresh jams. They also have a little market area with mixes.
  • Megan H.
    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!!!

    Not worth going out of your way for. Biscuits and jam is the order. Biscuits in the super-fluffy Pillsbury style. Good if you like that sort of thing

    Not as good in the past... you may not come for a burger two ordered burgers, one could have been used for a Preds game ..the biscuits, their namesake, were dense and not good. Server was nice.

    Eat the banana pudding and skip the chicken and biscuits! Dry chicken and okay biscuits! Growing up in the south I've had better chicken & biscuits. Best banana pudding to be found!!

    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?

    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.

    I live ~4 miles from Loveless and have been there several times. The quality of the food is very over-hyped, based on the reputation of the place. Food is ok, but not great. They excel at jams.
