If you have not eaten at Olde Courthouse Diner, it's too late! The place closed a few weeks ago. Sorry to lose a nice casual place to eat in Historic Jonesborough.

Went by today for lunch. It's out of business. Very sad, I enjoyed it when it was open. Paper sign on the door and window says CLOSED. Large sign in the window is advertising the property as FOR LEASE.

Reasonably priced meals at a restaurant located next to one of the Festival tents. Choice of sandwiches and hot meals. It is a highly-efficient operation, so you can get lunch in the 30-minute "break" between sessions.
