We found this wonderful restaurant by asking a local. So glad we took his advice. This restaurant has two types of seating upstairs (higher prices) and downstairs. We chose upstairs due to the wait time. I would recommend reservations, with that said it was the best food I can ever remember eating at a restaurant. We had steak, pork chops... More

I traveled to Nashville for the first time with two close friends. We were clueless where to have a nice dinner. The hotel desk suggested Merchants. We went on a Saturday around 8pm. The wait time was long, but the customer service and pleasant environment superseded my expectation. The staff was so friendly and communicated well. Once we were seated,... More

My husband and I stopped in here after attending a Predators game. The food was pretty good but the Bloody Mary's they had were delicious! A little pricey at $11 a pop, but it was probably one of the best Bloody Mary's I've had. The food itself was good, but nothing to write home about. The restaurant itself has a... More

We made a last minute call to eat here on a Friday night. It was very busy and the wait was 45 minutes. At least, they were good on their estimation. The rest of our party was at a basketball game so we needed to wait on them anyway. This is a nice restaurant. A little on the noisy side... More

I have been to Merchants now, four times on two trips to Nashville. If I went to Nashville today, I'd surely eat there. I just love the food. I think of it as a funky spin on New American-Southern food. You can google their menu to know what I mean. Food you recognize but yet still surprises the palette when... More

Very convenient since it is on Broadway. Excellent service as well as food. Like the airy feel with all the windows and friendly staff. Wish we had tried it sooner; I would have gone there twice. Nice menu selections.

We were looking for a cool place on music row that didn't serve typical bar food. There was no wait for Sunday lunch. The duck fat taters tots were delicious but beware, they are very filling. Two of us had the Soup and Sammy which seemed to be the concensus favorite. I had the Mac & Cheese and it was... More
