Macke's is gorgeous and the food was perfect. I appreciate your special attention to the details and making it all run so smoothly. It seemed like everyone really enjoyed it. Hope to see you again soon at one venue or the other!"

Steven N., Nashville, re: ...most fantastic meals..., July 8, 2010 "My wife and I celebrated our anniversary last night (7/7) with you all. It was one of the most fantastic meals I've ever had at an eatery in Nashville."

Dona & Hal, Nashville, re: ...dining experience at Macke's very special..., July 6, 2010 "Friday night was wonderful! You and everyone at Macke's made our Rehearsal Dinner and dining experience at Macke's very special! We have received "Many" compliments on your great food, and the cozy, elegant ambiance of the restaurant made the evening and our gathering truly memorable. And the flowers were so beautiful, even prettier than I anticipated. (I'm so glad that we had your designer at Macke's arrange them!) Thanks, Jill, for making everything seem so effortless (at least as far as we're concerned). We really enjoyed working with you, and look forward to seeing you in the future."

Becky and Gary, Nashville, re: ...perfect evening..., February 18, 2010 "Thanks again for a perfect evening. You make it so easy for Gary and I to entertain. We love you guys. Wine was perfect (Jordon). You are too good to us! Thank you again. I hope you know how much we appreciate you all. "

Julie of Nashville, re: Great evening!, January 20, 2009 "We had a GREAT evening! I really liked the private dining room. I wasn't sure where the table would be located and that separate room made it really nice. Our server was great and very attentive. The food was wonderful! ... Everyone was really impressed! We all agreed it would be something we would do again. "

Fern R., Nashville, re: ...thrilled with our Macke's experience..., January 11, 2009 "My friends and I had brunch today to celebrate one's birthday. Ciaran was our server and he was extraordinary, as was our meal. We have lunched together for 25+ years to celebrate birthdays. We were thrilled with our Macke's experience.

On Valentine's Day each year, our spouses get to join in on our fun. We wondered if the small, private dining room is available on the night of Saturday, February 13? We would love to dine at Macke's that night! Please let me know if our group can celebrate in your special room and with your wonderful food. Many thanks. "

KS of Bass Berry & Sims, Nashville, re: ...wonderful staff..., December 24, 2009 "I just wanted to thank you all again for spending your holiday taking care of us. I think everyone had a great time and were very pleased. You have a wonderful staff that are incredibly polite and so capable. You should be so proud of them. Thanks again an have a wonderful holiday!"

NA of Dollar General, Goodlettsville, re: Thank You...We were all impressed..., December 15, 2009 "I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful food you provided on Saturday night. My husband and I were at the party and we were all impressed with the food as well as the chafers. They were as beautiful as you said they were….. The food was hot and absolutely delicious! Thank you for coming to my rescue on such short notice. We will be sure to use your services again and to recommend you to others."

JH, Nashville, re: Wonderful Time, December 11, 2009 "Just wanted to let you know that our group had a wonderful time the other night. The food was delicious and the service was great. Thanks"

LS, Nashville, re: What a Beautiful Evening, November 10, 2009 "What a beautiful evening! The tables were lovely. The food and appetizers were wonderful. I loved that you were able to put up a drape in front of some retail windows. And my birthday cake was delicious! This may be my new favorite place for celebrations. Thank you so much for helping Bob create a perfect birthday party. "

Mary Clark, re: Cooking Class, October 22, 2009 "Wonderful class tonight, memorable flavors, and gracious hospitality--thanks to all of you--you are building such goodwill for your excellent restaurant, for we all had such a good time! I am bummed about not being able to come to the next class."

Leslie M. re: MBA Homecoming, October 05, 2009 "I wanted to say thanks for a wonderful meal. The teenagers loved it--even the girls! Bernie thanks for bringing more salad. Two of the moms were convinced that there was not enough salad--even when I told them that I trusted your catering experience--- and we did have salad left over. Do I owe you for the extra salad? Thanks for making the entire process--planning, delivery, the peanut oil question, and the meal go so well."

Mary Lou, October 21, 2009 "It could not have been lovelier. The food was fantastic and received so many compliments. Joshua was so attentive and did a wonderful job as did the other two servers who also helped. Everyone raved about the setting, the food, the service, everything....Everyone had a fabulous time and left VERY full!!! We'll see you again no doubt!"

JanM, Yelp, July 14, 2009 "I first discovered Macke's when I took my mother and sister for Christmas eve dinner. Because my mother is in a nursing home I decided to not cook and enjoy her company. Wow! The food was fabulous. My mother was a great cook and is hard to satisfy, but she loved not only the food but the ambiance. My husband and I have been back numerous times for both lunch and dinner and have never been disappointed."

LarryN, UrbanSpoon, July 02, 2009 "My wife and I first experienced Macke's when her employer, the Frist Clinic, had a Christmas party there. I have had some work experience with institutional food and know how difficult serving 150 people can be. But I was surprised and impressed with how exceptional the food tasted. Since then, Macke's has become our "go to" place when we celebrate anniversaries and birthdays or when friends and relatives come from out of town. They too praise how good the food tastes."

wenscar, CitySearch, June 25, 2009 "I used them for the first time for a catering job in Nashville. Everyone loved the food-fried chicken, corn, mac-n-cheese, bread, brownies, tea-wonderful! They were on time and very pleasant and easy to work with. I will definitely use them again.

Haus, CitySearch, June 25, 2009 "I love Macke's and have been several times. The food is always delicious - high quality, fresh/in season veggies, perfectly prepared. The service is very attentive - and you should be sure to save room from dessert. I even had one of the owners stop by and chat last time we were there! Very friendly, charming and yummy! Great for a girls night out, date night or just to treat yourself. Delicious menu - changes and never disappoints."

happydiner7259, CitySearch, May 14, 2009 "Big fan of MacK & Kate's in Kingston Springs, so I expected Macke's to deliver the goods as well. They sure did, in the form of my favorite comfort food—mac and cheese. I have told at least 20 people about it. Can't stop thinking about it either. Loved the patio feel of the space—definitely an improvement over the bookstore cafe, which was very hit-or-miss. Granted, the kitchen took quite a while to deliver out entrees, but the service more than made up for it. Will definitely be back."

marmart141, CitySearch, May 06, 2009 "We had our "girls night out" there tonight and it was incredible. Our server was kind and patient with us...we're slow to decide what we want to order :o)
The food was should try the Lobster Mac and Cheese (be ready to share because it's a big dish meant for sharing). I would describe the food as elegant southern or eclectic southern cuisine. So yummy!! You should try the salads...the greens are fresh and the dressing is light is refreshing.
We weren't thrilled with our entree, but I believe it's because we branched out and tried something that we wouldn't normally order. It was tasty and prepared well, but not a favorite. We will go back and try another entree...they all look delicious!!! The presentation was excellent also. Kudos to the chef and many thanks to our servers!!!! The experience was delightful!!"
