Welcome to Hobnob Corner
Welcome to Hobnob Corner, housed in the oldest surviving commercial building in Nashville. Built in 1873, is it possible Civil War veterans helped put it up? Initially serving as a dry goods and general store, later as a pharmacy and now for over thirty years as our restaurant, Hobnob has been a landmark for locals and visitors alike. We strive to serve our varied customers with an old-fashioned sense of commitment to good food and cheerful service.
We offer Lunch and Dinner seven days a week opening at 11:00 a.m.
We do close early on Tuesday's at 3:00pm.
Breakfast is served only on the weekends:
8:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. on Saturday
8:00a.m. until 11:30 a.m. on Sunday
We make all of our own baked goods. We have a special “After Five” menu put together by Chef Eric who trained at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY. The “After Five” has some very interesting entrees to choose from and Eric changes them fairly frequently. We hope you can come in and experience what we have to offer.

“Lives up to its reputation ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13,2015
Everyone told us to visit the Hobnob when we were in Nashville. We
had a late supper and it was what we expected. The food was very good
and reasonably priced. The service was good and helpful. We enjoyed the
older building and respect what the owners are trying to do. Not every
recommendation you get lives up to the hype but the Hoobnob did.
“Good food - nice atmosphere”
This little historic gem is well worth the travel time. Went in on a
Wednesday evening, where they we're featuring their "Wine-down
Wednesday". We purchased a nice bottle of wine for $14 (part of the
special) and enjoyed some very good guitar music by Jeff Foster.
The atmosphere was quaint - reminiscent of an old corner store. The people were friendly and the service was excellent!
The food was very good, but a buck or two expensive. They were out
of a few things - one of which I was going to order, but I still found
something good. I had the pork chop (too well done) with mustard
demi-glace. It was serve with braised kale, and an out-of-this-world
biscuit pudding (Think biscuit, meets southwestern cornbread, meets
bread pudding). My wife had a very nice salad.
All in all, it was a very nice night! We'll be back!
“Warm and inviting.”

We really enjoyed our Lunch at Hobnob. It was real home cooking. I
loved the Peanut butter pie as well. Possibly the best to date. Would
definitely go back. Thanks for a great meal and service.

“Great Evening Menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2014
The evening menu offers at least five entrees that are prepared with
flair. I went with the duck breast, which was tender and juicy with a
cranberry duck sauce for swabbing. The duck was served with a peppered
dressing and a lightly cooked kale.
The bread was locally baked, which was also evident in some very tasty herb croutons in the salad.
I skipped dessert, but could not resist the case of huge cookies at
the glass case by the check-out. Peanut butter cookie with chocolate
chips was a nice ending to a very good meal.
