My husband actually proposed to me after eating here; so it has a special place in my heart. :-) The service is great! I enjoyed the pork chops and the flower pot bread is very unique.

Loved the breaded mushrooms and BBQ pork steak. The bread was warm and soft. Everything was tasty, and nothing was overdone. The server was very friendly. Pleasant surprise!

My family have eaten at the Gallatin Grill many times over the years. Always good food, and freindly service. Expect a relaxed atmosphere, and don't be in a hurry to get in and out.
