I took my daughter here to have chicken and waffles for dinner. The chicken was flavorful, tender & juicy. The waffle was fluffy, crisp & had the best strawberry butter on top! Our waitress was very sweet & prompt. We will be returning & recommending to friends!

For the little ones, a stop at Miracle Field’s playground is a great way to work up an appetite, or head to the hands-on kids’ museum and nature center at the Discovery Center at Murfree Spring. You can also zip around the tracks at GO USA Fun Park and enjoy mini golf with a castle and bubbling water features.

And if that’s not enough to put a smile on the little one’s faces, try kid-sized Fried Chicken and Waffles, topped with sweet strawberry butter and powdered sugar from the Metro Diner’s Kid’s Menu. Yum.
