We went to the Family Wash on a Saturday night for happy hour ($2.50 beers, $5.00 wines) and to hear a wonderful jazz band- Crackerboots, whose lead singer- Louella- is outstanding! We were pleasantly surprised that the menu had such delicious entrees. My husband had sweet potato gnocchi with chicken (portion wasn't large enough for his man-sized appetite). I had... More

Soup and Sandwiches on stage! Outstanding food - cafe comfort with a twist, great music, friendly staff, reasonable prices and tasty dessert made this our favorite night out of our recent Nashville trip! Our party of 5 included 2 teenagers and 3 adults who all loved the music, the food, and the drinks! Local vibe. Go now. You won't regret... More

....left as the newest fan of "The Ornaments" and THEE Charlie McCoy! Seriously, look both up. ...and while they may not be playing when you come in town to visit, still swing by and try the burger w/ fries. It's sortof life changing.

This place has a fun atmosphere. I had an excellent chicken pot pie with really good wine. The menu is different. I was so glad because I am so tired of the usual salmon or shrimp and grits. Cute place with live music and a wonderful staff.

Family Wash is a very fun music venue that showcases great and varied talent and good food, reasonably priced food. Some say it's the best burger in Music City (a lofty claim) and it IS good. The shepard's pie is also a menu favorite and there are creative breakfasts served all the time.

Great beer and cocktail choices.. They have good but we just had a snack that was tasty. The night we visited there was an awesome band playing with no cover. Check out what is playing. Nice, friendly bar,

This unassuming gem had everything we were hoping for a in a music venue in Nashville. Laid back atmosphere, reasonable prices, tasty drinks and food, and an amazing live band.

What a great find! They were able to squeeze us in last minute, and I am so glad they did. Get there for HAPPY HOUR! Half priced beer, half priced snacks. Excellent vegetarian food, excellent catfish. Everyone had a great meal. The Shepards Pie (vegetarian with lentils) was a hit. The Fish and Grits came with the Herb Gravy -... More

I was shocked. Nice service. Very friendly. Funky cute inside. You can watch all the EN action if you sit outside. I tried the vegan shepherds pie. It was okay. My husband agreed mine is so much more tastier. Will be back.....
