The food is superb and they have a great drink selection from cocktails to beer to wine. The daily specials, walleye and cauliflower soup were very well prepared. The rhubarb pie and chocolate pot-e-crem were delicious. More

Merchant’s is hands-down the best restaurant in Lawrence. The food is outstanding, the menu changes regularly with the seasons, and Chef TK Peterson and Sous Chef Nathan Desetti create the most marvelous creative dishes. The wait staff is tremendous - they stay with the restaurant so you have people dedicated to its success; friendly, courteous, attentive, and professional. The small wine list is good and the house wines are top notch. There are 30 craft beer taps featuring regional brews as well as brews from around the country. The noise level is such that you can actually carry on a conversation at your table. Merchant’s is the best! More
