Romantic, chilled out atmosphere. A break from the noise . The food was amazing! Best steak we've had in a long time ! We also loved the rum blondie for dessert.

We enjoyed the blackened tilapia entree & blackened catfish sandwich with no bun. Excellent flavor blends & cooked to perfection! Fun place! Nice waitress!

We had some Nashville residents recommend Merchants as one of the best restaurants to experience during our visit. It is a local "establishment" with a sit down bar, and casual American dining cuisine. There are booths and tables. The menu is varied, service is friendly and food was delicious!

This was a really nice (and really busy) place right on Broadway. We ate at the bar both nights as we were lucky to find a seat when someone got up. The food was delicious, bartenders were very friendly and efficient and we would definitely return on or next trip.

After you hit all the bars with music on Broadway, try this for a non barfood or chain option. We ate on main floor - separate menu and more reasonably price than the upstairs menu (fine dining).

The food and atmosphere was very good. I would recommend dinner here. Oddly, the popcorn before the meal was notably stale and tasted terrible. The bright spot- Katie, our server, was exceptional.

We stopped in this restaurant for some late night food during a girls weekend in Nashville. The food was so delicious that we found ourselves back for another meal during our weekend stay! The guacamole, cheeseburger and duck fat tater tots were most noteworthy - and enough to go back for! On from their entree list, we also tried the... More

Table was ready as planned, service was incredible and the food was deliciously great. We ate upstairs which is more formal and worth it. Great restaurant, would highly recommend.

We came for lunch and enjoyed our meal! I had the grilled cheese and tomato soup. It came with homemade potato chips. All was pretty simple but done very well. It hit the spot for me! My husband got the burger and fries and said it was a solid burger. There were a good selection to choose from on the... More
