Wonderful Southern Food & Friendly Service. This is a wonderful treasure that you might drive past and not even notice. It's across from Lipscomb University, in the little strip of stores on Granny White Pike (12th Ave S). Parking can be a challenge at times, but a trick is to park in the gravel lot behind the coin laundry on the end of the development. You can get meat & 3 or a sandwich and I like both. On my last visit, the highlights were the pork chop and fried okra. This food is nearly as good as mom's and mom was a true southern cooking artist. Additionally, the service was excellent, very friendly employees. They have become a favorite of mine and I tell all my friends to give them a try.
BRUNCH -- PERFECTION.
This place is AMAZING! If you did not rate this 5 stars, you are out of your mind!
I would wait 3 hours for this food.
They have all you can eat brunch Sunday mornings for $17 (I think?) and my, my, my it is worth every penny. I had strawberry, pecan waffles and some of the best cut steak.
Our server was fantastic, very personable. Maybe the only downside is that this location doesnt service alcohol because it is on Lipscombs dry campus-- but after all of this food, it really is not a downside afterall.
Please go, YOU WON'T REGRET IT. and if you are anything like me, you will still be talking about it weeks later :)
Best Restaurant In Nashville... Period..
Went here for lunch today around 11:15 am, place was already starting to fill up but we still found a seat right away. Service was fast, you just walk through like a standard meat and three, you can also order off a menu board and have it brought to your table. Furnishings/atmosphere was very cool, rustic wood, old time music played at a background volume. They had a great variety for the dessert menu, definitely a good spot to take a lady for coffee and dessert.
My particular experience: I had the pecan chicken with the fried okra and mac 'n cheese, with a side of cornbread. RIDICULOUS. Chicken breast was very juicy and the pecan crust was SO good, and it was a very good quality cut of meat. The okra and mac were perfect. I've literally never had better mac 'n cheese in my life. Meat 'n 2 was $7.50, filled me up great (and I'm a pretty big dude).
I'm just so impressed with this place. Great service, great food, great atmosphere, new favorite place in all of Nashville (and I've eaten just about everywhere here).
My new favorite place for Sunday Brunch. My husband and I tried this place last week for the first time. We both kept talking about how amazing it was throughout the meal and even later that day. They had prime rib, turkey, brie, mozzarella/spinach salad, breakfast foods, vegetables, salad, cheeses and chocolate fondue. It is a wonderful place to take friends or guests from out-of-town. We ran an errand while we were waiting. The place is very small so those waiting must wait outside or in their cars. The meal was worth the one hour wait!
Awesome made from scratch food.
Copper Kettle is quickly becoming my new favorite place to eat in Nashville. Their food is fresh and they had a wide selection and menu that changes from day to day. My husband is somewhat of a food snob and isn't easily impressed, and he says their Reuben is the best he's ever had. Their mashed potatoes are incredible. I really haven't eaten anything there that I didn't enjoy.
As great as their food is Monday through Friday, Sunday is the best time to go for their brunch. They have a huge buffet of cheeses, salads, meats, desserts and will make an omelet any way you like it. INCREDIBLE food!
We go to the new location on Peabody and the atmosphere is warm and friendly and the service is great. Now that warmer weather is coming and they have the patio open, it's going to be even better. I just can't say enough good things about this place. If you haven't been, stop what you're doing and go.
Can't stop talking about it!. I recently experienced my first meal at Copper Kettle, and I can't stop talking about it with friends and co-workers. When I walked in and saw that it was cafeteria style service, I didn't expect anything extraordinary. Was I surprised! I got the almond-encrusted fish, fried okra and mac & cheese. The homemade tartar sauce for the fish was so good and flavorful, yet it didn't take away from the crispy, delicious fish. The fried okra had so many seasonings in the batter that worked perfectly together. Most fried okra you get at restaurants is somewhat bland. This wasn't even close to bland or boring. Although it was hard to choose my favorite part of the meal, I have to say the mac and cheese was the winner. It was so creamy, and it tasted as if it included many types of cheeses. My only complaints would be the lack of parking and the winter hours (closed on Saturday).
Great Food,Great Value, Great Service. I am a big supporter of any local restaurants. Especially restaurants that create food, service and atmosphere as well as this group. I'm not sure what this last guy on the reviews was talking about, but if Copper Kettle cannot make him happy maybe he should stick with the bland meat and 3 restaurants with soggy okra. To all of you at Copper Kettle.....thank you for running a hands down, quality restaurant. Great food, employees and cleanliness. Keep up the good work and I will always support you and tell all my friends.
Best Sunday brunch in town!. We bring everyone who visits us to the Copper Kettle for Sunday brunch because you can't miss it! Large spread of fruits, vegetables, breakfast meats & eggs, and wonderful but light desserts. Request made-to-order waffles and omelets from the server - they are both delicious and creative. And they feature the best Eggs Benedict in Nashville.
A big disappointment. We finally visited Copper Kettle after years of hearing good things about it. While the ambience is inferior even to a Cracker Barrel, the smell was heavenly when we entered the restaurant. Alas, the food did not match the enticing aroma. The meatloaf was mushy and drowned in a bland tomato sauce. The vegetables were only serviceable. The black-eyed peas were salty and the fried okra was a bit too crunchy. The mashed potatoes were palatable, but the green bean casserole was OK. In brief, it was an underwhelming experience (and the prices were higher than Cracker Barrel). We will not return for a second visit.
Get there early. Good homestyle food with changing daily specials. Really HUGE salads! Nice campus style atmosphere. Dreadful parking situation on dangerous street. Also, tables fill up quickly so get there early!
