The Yellow Porch (Nashville)

November 8, 2010

About a month ago, a few of us girls got together for lunch at The Yellow Porch, located at 734 Thompson Lane. I had never heard of this place before, but was excited to try something new. It’s a cozy dining experience with a lunch menu full of salads, sandwiches, and heartier entree selections. I opted for the Herbed Chicken Salad Wrap with potato salad.

The Yellow Porch Herbed Chicken Salad Wrap

So, how’s it taste?

It was ok. The chicken was chopped a little too fine for my liking, but it did have a nice flavor. Not as flavorful as most chicken salads, but good. I liked that it wasn’t swimming in mayonnaise, but combined with the potato salad, it was mayo overkill for my meal. I’m also not a fan of celery and both had bits of celery, which skewed my liking of the meal as a whole. I would order the wrap again, but wouldn’t pair it with the potato salad. The potato salad was tasty, but I had to add some salt to it.

There were only a few other items on the menu that appealed to me. I wouldn’t visit The Yellow Porch weekly, but I do have my eye on trying the Tomato & White Cheddar Melt. I hear it’s pretty tasty.

    i haven't been to the yellow porch in years, but my experience was the same when i used to go — it's good, but not great. i've been meaning to make a return visit to see how/if it's changed – that tomato + white cheddar melt might be enough to get me there!

    I've never been to Yellow Porch for lunch, but have been many times for dinner and it's actually one of my Top 5 faves in Nashville. I've always been happy with my meal, and I love the ambiance!

    I definitely want to go back for dinner rather than lunch. Although that tomato melt sounds really yummy. It seems like dinner is the time to go from what others are telling me. Lunch was just ok.

    I've been once and was pleasantly surprised with how nice it was. A bit expensive for a regular eatery though. I ordered the paella and it was amazing.
