Fun place, great food. I was looking for someplace in the area to try and found Family Wash on City Search. The reviews convinced me to check it out and I wasn't disappointed at all. The food was superb, the server helpful and attentive. The place is small and a bit crowded, but it's the kind of crowd where you don't mind being packed in a little tight. If you prefer some space, though, go early before the crowd arrives and the nightly music starts.
Pretty Good. Although we enjoyed our meal, I wouldn't say that the staff treats everyone like family. My husband and I had wanted to eat here for a long time. The veg. sheperds pie was very good..and certainly something that you can't find anywhere else in town. But the temp in the restaurant was about 80 degrees and our waitress seemed to have no interest in making a good impression of the restaurant. It appeared that no one was trying to keep us coming back for more. We had high expectations because of everything we had heard but ended up leaving disappointed.
Julia Rules. The family wash is one of my favorite places in Nashville. Blonde bombshell Julia aided by her team of burnette waitresses make you feel like you are part of something special and hip. A definite home away from home. Tuesday night pie and a pint can not be beat. Rock on, Family Wash!
Out of the way, but.... This place is, in one word, fantastic. East Nashville is becoming my favorite part of the city because of its new vibrant restaurants and fun gathering spots. The Family Wash is a great contribution to that. The food is solid and the atmosphere is great. I recommend the sheperd's pie to any first-timers - it will be enough to bring you back for more. The appetizers are also a place where the menu shines. The hummus and baked brie are obvious choices. On weeknights, you will feel like part of the neighborhood family - everyone is friendly and congenial. This place is a must!
Nice Place + Good Food!.
Nice ambience (I'd say the atmosphere is casual and kitsch - with style) and really good food (even for finicky vegetarians).
Speaking of vegetarians, I suggest getting the vegetarian shepherds' pie and refrigerating it 'til the next day. As chef's say, like meatloaf, the flavors "marry" - and it's delicious!
Vegetarian Friendly. My boyfriend and I love this place. We are both vegetarian and it's nice to see a place with a vegetarian shephard's pie! Yummy!
great neighborhood place.
We love the Family Wash, but haven't visited in a while because the menu never changes. Their veggie shepherd's pie is great (better than the traditional, which can be dry sometimes), but there really needs to be another veggie entree. Or maybe a special every other night.
The non-smoking part of the restaurant is GREAT and really appreciated. Beer and wine selections are very good and at very good prices. The Family Wash is a great addition to the 'hood. It's hip and funky without pretentiousness. Worth checking out.
Our new favorite hang!.
As new residents of East Nashville, we were so excited to find such a comfortable hang in the neighborhood! Even on a busy Friday, there was no "rush you in and out" vibe- just a great place to be with friends and make new ones.
Haven't eaten a lot off the menu, but the beer/wine selection alone is worth the trip. Prices are good too!
Clean up at Family Wash!. We love this place! We went there the first night they opened and it was love at first bite. Great beers selection! Try their tasty hummus & pita points or the Ploughman's plate (bread & cheeses), plus they have great salads and sandwiches. A hidden secret in East Nashville (but close to Inglewood). This place is non-smoking friendly too. Call first to check their hours, they vary by season. Take a spin at Family Wash soon!
