The Nashville House ~ A Restaurant in Brown County

If you ever visit Indiana, Brown County should be added to your list! It is especially beautiful to visit around late September and all of October.  All of the trees start to change to the beautiful oranges, reds, and browns. We went the weekend for my birthday. I am a September baby and I am glad to say so! September is a wonderful time of year! It is still warm enough to wear open toe shoes but still cold enough to wear a sweater.

One of the first places to visit was the Nashville House. My husband and I have been coming for the last 2 years for my birthday to this restaurant. It is well known for it's fried biscuits and apple butter. We love eating here! It has a rustic historical feel to it and the staff is so pleasant. You must visit this place if you are ever here in Indiana!

So when you walk in this is the Old Country Store. 
They sell all their homemade items here.

I love the Sassafras tea! It smells like root beer! 
But it doesn't taste like it. 

It has the feel of a small town store. I love it!

Here are the kitchen utensils

They sell old and vintage cookbooks

An up close look at the Sassafras tea.
They actually sell this in the restaurant to drink with your meal!

Homemade jams and preserves! 
I purchased some of the blackberry spread & local Indiana honey. 
I can't wait to try it on my french bread. 

Walking into the dining room.
We are ready for some fried chicken and biscuits!

Sorry it's blurring but this is inside the dinning room

So delicious! This is the fried biscuits and homemade apple butter.
You can actually buy a jar of this in the store.

Our meal! Fried chicken, mashed potatoes (I don't like gravy on my potatoes),
green beans and cole slaw (on the side).
