First time ever to the little town of Nashville and was just passing through. Went in town and found the town was a tourist haven. Town looks unchanged from the 1920's. Hobnob was great. Service was excellent. Food was delicious. Bar area looked to be original to the the 100+ year old building. Awesome visit to this secret little town in Southern Indiana.

Excellent experience. Serving from a wonderful menu that includes great wine selection. We had the breaded tenderloins and steak fries. It won't disappoint! Hand breaded and dressed with fresh veggies on top. Cosy atmosphere with a feel for the long forgotten drug store of the past. Sits on the corner in center city. Go early or during off meal times to avoid crowd of popular followers, especially since the Nashville House across the street has closed down. Parking may be an issue unless you are also enjoying the shops. Wheelchairs, handicap scooters and strollers will find it difficult to impossible to get up the stoop and into the front entrance. Be prepared as the dining area is very tight for the handicapped. I hope this does not limit this wonderful experience from those with special needs.

Such a cute place to eat in downtown Nashville after a day of shopping. Ben is the best server ever! Super nice and makes you laugh. He recommended the special of asparagus on focacia bread with roasted peppers and mushrooms with a balsamic drizzle. It was wonderful. I recommend this place for children and adults.

About Us...

     An artisan-inspired restaurant nestled in the heart of Nashville, Indiana. Once you enter through our doors, you will find yourself surrounded by rustic charm, history, and honest food. House made, handmade, innovative yet familiar and comforting, prepared by people who care and love food. We are friendly, approachable and pride ourselves on making you feel comfortable and cozy in our family run business featuring the culinary stylings of Chef Eric Reid Cole. Raised in Brown County, Indiana, Chef Eric immersed himself in the preparation and appreciation of food from his earliest memories. His parents, Warren and Betsy Cole, have owned and operated Hobnob Corner Restaurant since December of 1979, and from as early as he can remember they instilled an appreciation for the quality of food, variety, and uniqueness in everyday life. He also remembers always having a bountiful garden at home every summer. It was those summer days growing up caring for the garden and making fresh meals at home from its selection that planted the seeds for his future.

Influenced by his Father's and Grandfather's love for cooking, as well as their delight in exploring and creating recipes, Eric chose from an early age to peruse Culinary Arts as a career. He was fortunate to study at the premier Culinary Institute of America in New York, where he excelled in his class and graduated in 2004. He proceeded to expand his skills within the kitchen of the Conrad Hilton Indianapolis, as a member of the staff that launched the first five-star restaurant in the entire state of Indiana. He later worked at Marin County's iconic Lark Creek Inn (California). While his career took him across the United States, his heart has always been in Brown County where he returned home to take over the kitchen of the family business.

Chef Eric's exciting take on offerings has developed quite the following of patrons with his "AFTER FIVE" menu. This specialty menu highlights dishes that are innovative, modern, and delightful, providing a dining experience that is unique and unmatched in the area--from the first savory bite to the last.

As a chef, he loves working with fish delivered fresh from Louisville, as well as, creating tantalizing vegetarian selections. He especially enjoys the versatility of pork. In 2014, he participated in a weekend "Nose to Tail" course to study Charcuterie. Since then he has produced many varieties of homemade sausages, including Chorizo, Italian, Bratwurst, and for the 2015 National Maple Syrup Festival he is introducing a tasty Maple Garlic Sausage. Periodically he also makes his own breaded Pork Tenderloin and features a variety of Pork Chops entrees on the seasonal and "AFTER FIVE" menus.

Therefore, whether this is your first visit or your hundredth, we take great gratification in serving you food that is both satisfying and memorable. Please visit our website for our menu and upcoming menu changes, special events and music performances. Like us on Facebook and let us know what you crave and enjoy!
