Nashville, Indiana -- May & June, 2009
My wife and I traveled to Nashville, Indiana where we stayed Saturday through Wednesday at a timeshare located there. While we did not always eat out, this is a list of the places where we ate during the week and my impression of them.
LUNCH -- Dairy Queen -- 615 Annette Dr, Markle, IN
We pulled off the interstate here intending to eat at Vinatelli's Italian Cafe which was advertised on a sign up the road, but it was closed. This is just an example of what often happens when you try to avoid chains whaile traveling cross-country on the interstate highway system. There was also a Huddle House at this exit, but it too was closed. The remaining choices were Dairy Queen and Subway, and we chose DQ. It was filling.
LUNCH -- Papa's Grill -- 3780 W Jonathan Moore Pike, Columbus, IN
A bar & grill in a shopping plaza just off Indiana Route 46 west of I-65. I had a hamburger, which was pretty good but not great.
LUNCH -- Nashville House -- Main & Van Buren, Nashville, IN
The signature food here is the fried biscuits and apple butter - also, the coleslaw here is distinctive - diced fine, a lot of pepper, and dry. I had an Indiana country ham and cheese sandwich, which was very good.
LUNCH -- Max & Erma's -- 12105 N Executive Dr, Edinburgh, IN
I had a half reuben, which was pretty good. Part of a chain, so I will say no more.
LUNCH -- Hobnob Corner Restaurant -- 17 W Main St, Nashville, IN
I had a tenderloin sandwich, which was pretty good but not great.
DINNER -- Harvest Dining Room -- 8072 State Road 46 E, Nashville, IN
The Harvest Dining Room is in the Brown County Inn at the southern edge of Nashville. I had a bison ribeye steak that was not bad at all. I have seen buffalo burgers in several restaurants, but this is the first place where I have seen steak on the menu.
