REVIEWS OF Chef’s Market IN Tennessee

Charles Sanders

My Wife and I eat here several times a month. Every dish we have had has been awesome! The staff is always friendly and helpful. They will give you samples before you buy which is unheard of at other places. The gift shop is also a must see. They change out merchandise, and always have something new and fun. I would give 10 stars if I could.

Colleen Cussick

Amazing food in a cute cafe that also features a retail shop! But it really is all about the incredibly fresh and well made dishes. Glad we went at 11am, as the line at the counter filled in very quickly!

Martha Nelson

Always great. Great food, beautifully prepared and displayed, great friendly service no matter how busy they are, and great desserts! It is a constant destination for that special lunch.

Loretta Calvert

Excellent choices healthy and decadent go for the hot choices with berries for dessert

AnJie Havens

Always home made food that is so delicious! I'm from Michigan but when I visit my friend near here we make a point of going there at LEAST once, if not twice for dinner. Choices galore, all of the so tasty! It's one of a kind restaurant, make it one of your stops when in this area!!!

Ross Caroland

I've known of this place a long time and finally made it in.... excellent food and good portions.

Cameron Stokes

I seldom give 5 star reviews, but Chef’s requires 5. I eat here 2-3 times a week, and often take friends and guests. In years of dining, I have never had a bad experience. Our son worked at Chefs during high school. I asked him whether he was disinclined to eat there after seeing the business from behind the counter. He said he was even more likely to recommend after seeing the quality of the food and the prep process. Guests like the meatloaf. I’ll be having the hot chicken salad (ask for a free sample) and fruit tea with spicy corn bread.

Al Lilianstrom

Decent food. Ordered the Throwback Burger. Took a long time to get it - i.e. my wife was done with her meal before it showed up. And it wasn't cooked as requested. I suppose if I had the afternoon to waste I'd have complained but there are things to do.

Alan Richards

Great place! Nice bazaar & self serve restaurant

Keri Largin

Excellent lunch spot! Cafeteria style meat and 2 with a slightly more upscale array of choices. I had the pot roast, my husband had the meatloaf, and my kid had the cheeseburger. We were all very pleased! It is slightly more expensive than the average lunch spot, but well worth it and the portions are huge.

Terry Imar

A real find! A great and varied menu - loved the meatloaf. Everything appears to be homemade. The butter rolls are light and delicious. The whipped sweet potatoes are like a dessert. The service is great and the owner is delightful. We'll be back whenever we're in the area.

J Pat

Food was fantastic! Prime rib sandwich is served French Dip style. Fries were hot and crispy.

Matt Allen

I would eat here everyday if I hit the powerball. Great selection with options for everyone! Kid friendly and the food is delicious. Fall off the bone chicken and the meatloaf are my favorites. Always fast and fresh!!!

Jason Winget

Chief complaint is the lack of prices displayed anywhere, not that they are bad but it would be nice to know in advance what you are paying. Two of us had lunch for $35. When you go in you go all the way thru the cliche gift shop items to …

Lisa Koe

Don't let the name fool ya! I can't give this place enough stars!!! The food was SO good! When you 1st enter the restaurant, there are bakery cases filled with some of the prettiest pasteries & desserts.....and yes, they are just as yummy as they look! Then you walk thru a little store area, think Cracker Barrel, but nicer!! Then its onto the food!! The cases have so many different types of soups, salads; (pasta, potato, chicken, etc), fruit sides or large fruit servings, hot & cold subs & sandwiches. seems never ending! (Check out their menu online.) You just walk past the cases, point to what you want of the many sides, and/or just look up at their menu boards & order your main meal, once you've done with your "walk thru", step up to the register & let 'em know what you ordered, they take cash or credit. You can either wait at the register for your food, or grab a table & they'll call your number. There are plenty of tables inside, but they also have tables outside as well. Even though they are in a strip mall, the outside eating area is really quaint & quite nice; they have plants, flowers & other types of foliage, to help make you feel "separate" from the other stores. All of the employees that I interacted with were all super friendly, polite & extremely efficient! We stopped by for lunch, and even though it was super busy we didn't have to wait long for our food, and we didn't have to wait at all for a table. The tables were cleaned off the moment customers left; not like a lot of places that have tables "opened" but are left dirty. I highly recommend this place for a quick bite alone or a nice lunch with friends!

Alan Adden

Really good healthy food, nice staff. Cafeteria style, can get busy.

Donna Dye

Fast and fabulous. Only negative, the white chocolate chips in the banana pudding...ick.

Paula Boenigk

I really like the food. Lately the prices have been going up. My granddaughter got 3 veggies , a roll and a drink and it was $17.00. No meat meal should not be this high . Sometimes the person ringing up your ticket is a little unsure of the prices . One person said the entrees come with 2 sides and a roll . Another time we were charged separately for the entrees and the vegetables. You need to watch your receipt. It is excellent food just getting a little pricey for a cafeteria. We do not need to tip which is a savings . You completely serve yourself .

Cassie Garro

On this visit the team behind the counter was *highly* disorganized. We were with a party of six. Most of the side items were luke warm at best. One person in our party had ordered a wrap that sat in the window far longer than it should’ve (5 minutes) while we stood there and waited. Quite displeased with the quality of the food considering the price that we paid as well as the chaotic service.

Belkis Yisrael

O my gosh food is 100%delish!!!!! Every bit is full of flavor they have a $25 all you can eat special

Matthew Gilmore

Awesome food, and atmosphere!!! I had the fruit tea and it was to die for. The staff are really awesome and they make you feel at home. Having said that the food has a lot of home feel and soul.

John C

Chef's Market is an excellent restaurant. I heard about this place late Friday night and went for dinner on Sat. I also went back on Sunday (but they were closed :(). I had Salmon with an awesome sauce. The 2 sides I chose was a vegetable casserole, and grilled vegetables. They were all very tasty. The portions are huge. I also had a truffle chocolate chip cookie that was very good. I look forward to visiting Chef's Market the next time I am in town.

Grace Ranalli

Amazing! Food is always awesome and service is fantastic!!! One of my favorite restaurants.

AJ Dominick

Always fresh and delicious food. The service is attentive and helpful. I love the pasta, but the meat and three is always a good choice. The flourless chocolate cake is awesome. Don't forget to get a cookie for your little one.

Brad Royer

Don't let the strip mall facade fool you. Once inside you'll find a great selection of high quality foods including fresh salads, baked goods, and hot entrees to choose from. You order first, then grab a table, and pay when you leave.

Kristi Stewart

Superior selection of a wide range of cold & hot food. And wow!!! What delicious looking cookies & mile-high cakes of every imaginable flavor. Very pleasant, happy staff that look very clean & speak well. An exceptional gift shop welcomes you as you walk through the door. There were beautiful household items, children's items & an array of jewelry, etc. I will be back!

Sulynne Denton

Large serving size! Green beans with pork was much too salty. However, roast beef with carrots and mac and cheese were delicious! We will go back.

Christine Warrington

Yum yum yum and great shopping. If you are near it, visit it.

Nic Giordano

Management is clueless and has no idea how to treat employees. Theresa in particular is manifestation of uselessness. Food is pretty good. But why support a company that treats their employees like garbage.

Andrew Moss

Great food, great service and the most reasonable prices I've seen in a long time.

Luke Freeman

My visit here was great. Went and ordered a to-go order and the server Atley got my food together quick and made sure I was happy with my order. The food was amazing as always. Great local restaurant!

Alex Adams

Only people giving less than 5 stars must have waited in long line to get their amazing food. So many great options. I like meat and my wife is vegetarian and we go every week. Menu is never dull.

Philip Williams

Very good variety of food and really good and tender pot roast!!

richard scurlock

Great food. A little pricey. great looking desserts. Things to look at before and after you eat.

Matt Hamilton

awesome place to eat! Meatloaf is wonderful and so is the cornbread


I love it every time I go. Amazing food (with many comfort or healthy choices), wondrous variety, plenty of options for vegetarians and gluten-free folks (AND carnivores), and staff that kill you with kindness and patience. Even their burgers are great. They're doing so much right. The only problem is narrowing down the choices for each particular visit.

Michael Steele

Best quality food around, always know you get great tasting food here!

Micheál O'Leary

Food it's outstanding, in a really eclectic environment. Well worth a visit, if you're in the area, or just passing thru. Save an appetite, the portions are big and the desserts are amazing. The chocolate cake is to die for.

Aundria D.W. Green

The food selection was AMAZING!

Brenda Spence

A little pricey for lunch. Fresh food variety. Employees very very nice. Friendly atmosphere.

Betty Belmar

This place came recomended from the nice lady working the front desk at candlewood suites. Food was wonderful service was great. This place is a must see.

Mrs Matthews

Extremely friendly staff! Fabulous food! Wonderful atmosphere!

Vic Flanigan

MUST “BUCKET LIST” for foodies - “10” - Jim Hagy (owners) is a third generation restauranteur. His grandfather’s first place in Shiloh, TN was the beginning of “SOMETHING TRULY SPECIAL” - - Chef’s Market “offers the best” in both comfort and healthy food options - - with that special Tennessee home cooking magic (fantastic flavors) unique to Tennessee & southern cooking. Note: Our neighbors from 1st Baptist gave us a welcome package after we moved from Scottsdale, AZ to Gallatin, TN. Inside was a with a list of “PREFERRED RESTAURANTS” by their 20+ pastors on staff. ** CHEF’s MARKET ** was the number one pick! We know two things: #1 Pastors like to eat and knows “good” food from “great” food! #2 They don’t always agree on many things - - but they do and did in picking “CHEF’S MARKET” for “great’ eats! Bone Appetite! Oh, MUST TRY THE SWEET POTATOES! Highly recommend!

Andy Graybeal

Great southern food ar a price. Highly recommend!

Ron Newsome

Longest line I ever saw there. But it moved smoothly. And the meal was worth the wait. Delicious and the portions are extremely generous. I'll try to eat slower next time to enjoy it longer.

Diana Stritzel

Great food and very kind and happy staff. Love it!

Stephanie Schutt

Not only are the long standing menu items---with a few new additions--absolutely a delight for the taste buds, the unique and beautiful clothing, gift and home items offered here are like one of a kind treasures. Whole coffee beans to hot coffee, French patisserie to cookies, Jerusalem Chicken to Black bean salad-- oh! and get a bag of their homemade tortilla chips, they are fabulous--- eat in or take away... if you're headed to points north on I-65 or Vietnam Veterans Parkway---be sure to exit off and visit Chef's Market and Takeaway. You will be delighted!

Scott Bailey

It was good. I think a coffee shop was there before the restaurant was there, but that was the spring of 2005. I need to go back one more time to give a five star rating.

Shana Redenbaugh

It was excellent food but beware of you have allergies. We ordered a dish and was told it didn't have nuts but found two chunks of walnut of which my sister in law was highly allergic to. Even if recipe didn't call for nuts, they have obvious cross contamination. Customer service was excellent from some staff and less than mediocre from a few others but on a hole we enjoyed it.

Tina Sivley

LOVE this restaurant, just adore it! Food is excellent, staff is incredibly polite and helpful, and the atmosphere is welcomely charming. I would give it 10 stars if I could, I'd also eat there every day, of I could.

phil gazzola

My wife and I were heading home from Florida last week, found a hotel to spend the night and by luck this place was right next door to the hotel, we walked in for a bite to eat and the owner happened to be there he asked us how we heard about his restaurant we told him we were heading home from our vacation stopped at the hotel next door. He then proceeded to walk us around showing us his restaurant, I was very impressed with him and his Restaurant, The food was excellent, His staff was super friendly, He gave us a free salad on top of it all, So from now on when were heading south we will make it a point to stop in for lunch or dinner. Thank you for the great hospitably

Chris Goodall

I am so excited to find this wonderful place. The food is fresh and delightful and the cake... oh my gosh.. you must try the cake. It's perfect. Our new favorite place to eat.

Boyce Byrum

Great food, service is great. Gotta try the deserts, wow they are great. We eat here often and they never disappoint!

Gordon Simpson

Excellent food and super friendly staff.

Mary Nunaley

Excellent food and service. Tasting samples available for any of the salads. Hot entrees are fresh and the veggie selection is wide. Save room for dessert, family favorites are the strawberry layer cake or the flourless chocolate cake.

Erica Mierop

Always a great place for lunch or dinner, and the have the best cake around!

Gregory Yuh

I did not realize this was a restaurant. Food was delicious and prices were great. Cafeteria style gourmet food where you get one main protein and 2 sides. We tried meatloaf, salmon, half chicken and brisket with all the sides they offered. What a treat at a great price. We'll be coming back here lots more now that we know.

Ginny Weatherford

I love going to eat here they have some amazing food and the desserts are so yummy....

Adventures of P

I love this place but the past few experiences have been not been so great. The Ruben has been more fat than meat. Roast beef is lots of fat as well. My reason for posting is watching talk of the town this week showing how they make a delicious veggie and sausage soup that looked full of chunky vegetables and sausage. When I went to order the it they had no idea what I was asking for. They finally figured out what soup I wanted. When I took it home it was only sausage and onions with one carrot piece and one celery chunk. Flavor was good but it had no vegetables but onions and my reason for ordering the soup was the appealing vegetables. False advertising


Amazing food! This was my first time to Chef's Market and I will definitely be back. The food is served cafeteria style, and I believe there is a menu from which you can order. I had the Jerusalem chicken, smoked Gouda Mac and cheese, and green beans almandine. The quality of ingredients and preparation are second to none. They also have cakes that look divine, and evidently they have varieties of coffee that can be purchased by the cup or even a bag of whole beans to take home. Do not let cafeteria style dissuade you. It's not elegant but the restaurant is well appointed and for a foodie, this is a can't miss!

susan creaney

Love this place! Food is delicious

Alice Dorsey

Nice place to sit and eat. The seating Is very uncomfortable no padding seat Or back so remember have any Problems in that area be prepared. The food is very good but cost a lot The portion is plenty.. That is the only complaint bring the Cost.down just a bit. It would then be a five star. .

Darren Carter

Loved it, first time going, food was amazing.

Tammy Long

I met a group of friends at Chef's at 6:30 pm. I can't tell you how the food was, the line was really long and not moving very fast, but it looked great. Instead I bought a dessert and hot tea. Best decision I made! Their cheesecake was scrumptious!


This is one of my favorite spots in Goodlettsville. The menu will suit any diet/lifestyle. It is a must try. You will not be disappointed.


Chefs is always amazing! Don’t leave before you try the cakes/cookies!

Joy Within

I use to always give this place 5 stars, however the last 4 times we went the chicken and pot roast were always over cooked and dry. The meat loaf has no flavor. It needs green bell peppers and onions. Won't be going back for awhile. The menus is always the same. Try some new stuff! Joy

John Baker

Busy place. Large meal at reasonable price. When you get there go in back and get in line. Full lineup of food. Ordered the meatloaf and it was to much to finish. Good service. Had many Christmas items on display. Even the kids liked the food. Will go again.

Tom Littrell

Everything we had was outstanding. Lots of items to choose from, save room for dessert, or at least take some home with you.

Gordon L

What a great place to eat! Drove a bus down with a lacrosse team from Northern Minnesota. We eat a lot on the road and after awhile everything starts to taste the same. Chef’s Market was an absolute surprise. The staff was very friendly and helpful. When we wind up in The Nashville area again, I will be sure to eat here.

Gordon Adamski

So awesome to have lunch here again. Been too long. GREAT

Mary Ellen Anderson-Hill

I have always had excellent service and delicious meals. Even when they are busy, it's service with a smile.

Gayle Burnett

The food is freshly prepared and ample quantity. I would highly recommend trying it

Lois Pounds


Andy Colley

I'm not sure why I haven't been to this hidden jewel in Goodletsville but I can say one thing. I'll definitely be back. Food was very fresh and a friendly staff. I felt like I was in an upgraded Cracker Barrel. Anyways this a must try for anyone looking for some good food.

William Crowder

If you haven't been here, drop whatever you're doing and go. The hot bar is delicious, the cold bar is delicious, the menu items are delicious. You could try to make a bad meal here and fail.

Raechael Woodroof

Chef's Market is real food from real people who put love and passion into every item served. They are committed to putting you first and creating a comforting and unforgettable experience for all diners. Whether in the restaurant or through their catering. Their professionalism is bar none! It is a disservice to yourself, your staff, family or friends to bypass the excellent food and desserts they have to offer.

sara arnold

My favorite place to grab a bite in this area. Food is always wonderful and portions are large. Staff is always very friendly and helpful, even when they are busy.

steven forster

Delicious cafeteria style food. A little pricey, but worth the cost. You will not leave hungry.

Shanelle Cox

Great food, and service.

Brian Scimeca

Cracker Barrel store meets so much better cooking.

Nicole Ray

Love coming to Chef’s when I’m in the area. Food is always solid and they have fun tchotchkes and gifts for purchase. Think: an elevated Cracker Barrel.


Oh my goodness! This was my first time eating here and it was over the top delicious! If we're in the area again we will definitely stop to eat here again. The atmosphere is unique, casual, and comfortable. The food is better than I've had at 99% of the places I've eaten in my life! Eat here! You will not be disappointed!

Marlie Cooley

We have been here a week. We just found out about this place from a local. We're from Mississippi. I wish we would have known about it sooner. We can't get enough of it. The food is out of this world!! I can't pick a favorite. But... My favorite is everything!! Especially the white chocolate banana pudding. Oh my gracious! We should have brought an ice chest. Everyone was so nice and made us feel so welcomed. We left with fresh ground coffee and dessert. I wish there was one in Mississippi. I would never leave. Lol.

steve orrick

A different was to eat out. I really liked it

McKenna Browne

Disappointed in the owners customer service. Interrupted us while we were at the table eating just to tell us we owed him a dollar. Did not explain clearly why we owned a dollar. Heard 3 different stories of what we owed, instead of apologizing and clearly explaining, he was rude and reached over our plates to tell us we just owed a dollar. Would’ve been happy to pay the dollar if he was nice and clear and apologetic about it. I am very unhappy with the experience I had and will probably not be giving them my business again. On the bright side, the girl at the register was very nice and understanding. Not upset with anyone else in the restaurant except for this rude behavior by the owner.

Asphalt Angels

Amazingly good home cooked food. Has a crackel barrel feeling when you walk in they have items for sale that are unique. Clothes plaques and baked goods offered for sale. I had turkey and dressing with salad and banana pudding it was …

Alan Cason

Best meat loaf I've had in a long time!

Joseph mccall

Amazing food!! Huge portions at a decent price. Tons to choose from, everyone will have something they like.

Sherri Fox

The food was delicious! I had the pit roast which was melt in your mouth tender and tasty. Atmosphere was unusual, different. We liked it and if we lived here would go back easily! Staff was also friendly.

Rich Ewald

Excellent home cooking! Large variety.

Jake Crum

Doesn't get any better than Chef's Market. Great food!!!!

Matt Hayes

First time that my wife and I have eaten at chefs! WOW is the only word I would say! Food was amazing, nice shopping options and great service! Thank you Mrs Nobles for telling me about this place! Only thing I wish, we had one in Clarksville where we live! Amazing place, wish I could give me stars!!

Ms g

Wow im a truck driver on my down time im always looking for some comfort food i found this place this morning i stalked their website before attempting the walk to their restaurant when i tell you my food was amazing it was the best ive had in a long time

Sheila Payne

Delicious food, great price. Fast service

Mariah B

It was our first time here so we wanted to try a few things because there's so many different type of salads we hadn't seen. The staff were rude and we felt rushed and pressured to make a decision. No one caught on or asked had we been there before there was 1 woman with our plates then another woman was I guess helping her (because we were taking too long?) But this made things more confusing. Since we already had 1 of the salads (that unbeknownst to us is considered a protein) when we moved over to the hot food and wanted chicken and salmon we were told it would be an extra charge for the salad. We still don't know the process and prices for any of this so at this point we have 2 proteins on 1 plate and 1protein/side on the other. We decide not to get any other items for fear of uncertainty of extra charges and the vibes of not having time for us. At the register we learned about the salad as a protein, not because it was explained to us but because the cashier had to ask someone else how to ring it up and we heard that explanation. The food itself was okay. Salmon was barely warm, edges we're cold. Chicken was okay of you like that flavor (Jerusalem) but kinda tough. Chocolate chip cookie was cakey. Lime cake was pretty good. Overall, won't be back.

Jason Epperson

My most favoritest place to eat in the world! Everything is incredible!!

Valerie Young

I've been to Chef's Market some years ago. I went by tonight and wasn't upset about the food. They still served quality tasting food.
