B. McNeel’s is casual dining with Southern charm.  It is a classic meat and three eatery which offers a table of Southern comfort foods for lunch, such as fried chicken, okra, sweet potatoes, catfish, cheese grits and more.  This two story dining establishment sits in a renovated 100-year-old building that was formerly the town’s telephone company.  It has been highlighted on TN Crossroads and in  Southern Living, among other publications.


As one of Murfreesboro’s few independently owned restaurants, B. McNeel’s is nestled into a quintessential location directly off the Murfreesboro Square within just a few miles of Middle Tennessee State University.  You will find B. McNeel’s to be a perfect lunch break from work, class or just a nice getaway to a relaxing atmosphere with affordable down home cooking.


Barbara Thomas, who worked for years as a caterer, established B. McNeel’s in 2001.  B. McNeel’s immediately became known as a premier dining establishment for lunch and Sunday brunch.  With an informal dining area downstairs, patio seating, and upstairs formal banquet room, B. McNeel’s features a chef-driven menu featuring local favorites.

How did I not know about this place? It’s fantastic! I’m almost hesitant to write a review because this place is by far the best kept secret in Murfreesboro. Since our favorite lunch spot closed recently, we’ve been searching for a new place. We found it!
