Our second visit when we travel to Nashville and go the Ryman. Easy drive
from the restaurant to the public library garage for parking. Great
happy hour from 3-7. Had dinner at 5. All was good but disappointed
the Nashville city view was obstructed more by buildings to the east. Go
after dark if you want to see skyline.

We went to the Germantown Café for Sunday brunch. We were not disappointed. We were seated promptly at the time of our reservation. The waitress Bobbie was very friendly and efficient. We had the crab cakes eggs Benedict, which were excellent.

The only negatives were that the restaurant is quite noisy, and one waiter (who thankfully was not serving us) who apparently was in training kept scratching his scalp and his beard while serving food. If he had been serving us, I would have complained.

I did update the open table reservation right after I booked it but it still showed the original 4 when I had update to 5. They were able to accommodate the change however.

We really enjoyed our lunch at the Germantown Cafe, and it was very easy to get there from downtown Nashville on the FREE Music City Circuit Blue Bus. Our food was attractively presented, delicious, and served promptly in a charming atmosphere.

Wonderful Saturday brunch - the Steak Benedict was full of flavor and the omelette stuffed with sausage and cheddar, but the pepper jack grits were the coup de "gras-vy"! We will be back for more of everything.

We have gone to Germantown Cafe many times, sometime with just the 2 of us, sometimes with 4 or 6 and once with a big group of 15. It has always been a really good meal and service and a pleasure to be there.

Overall it was a very good experience. The food was outstanding. The mac and cheese was perfectly done, the pork belly tots are worth a try, and the French onion soup is outstanding. My wife had the meatloaf and I had the swordfish special. Both were spot on. The meatloaf is a menu staple and it deserves to be there. The swordfish was very flavorful and cooked perfectly. We will definitely be back.

Germantown Café can always be depended on for great food, good atmosphere, friendly and knowledgeable wait staff. The only disappointment of the evening was that they had run out of their chicken entrée.

We stopped by before heading downtown for a concert. The service was fast, the atmosphere was nice, and the food was excellent! The only bad is the parking situation. The Cafe has a lot across the street. We paid $15 for one hour of parking. Not a huge deal, but limited options. You can either by 1 or 8 hours of parking. Not sure of the price for 8 hours. Still, great restaurant for drinks and food!

Was in town to visit my daughter and she had been raving about the salmon dish. I couldn't wait to have it. We both ordered it and the waitress came back 15 minutes later to tell us there was no more salmon. Very disappointed.
I ordered the onion soup per the waitresses suggestion and I asked for it well done on the cheese. I also ordered crab cakes.
The onion soup was luke warm, the cheese was hardly cooked on top and the crab cakes were room tempature.
My daughters amberjack was very good.
I was not happy with this meal at all, especially for the price I paid. I visit Nashville every month and wish that I had a better experience. I really like the ambience and service.

My three brothers and I were in Nashville for a brothers get-together. Found Germantown Cafe on OpenTable. Great meal, good wine, attentive and knowledgeable staff, and reasonable prices. It was a perfect choice that helped to make our weekend together all the more fun. All four of us would recommend it!

The good was mediocre. Maybe I caught them on a bad night. The fried green tomatoes were not good. The curry coconut salmon was good but didn't really taste like curry or coconut but the salmon was tasty. The risotto that accompanied it was cold.

They do a number of things well: location, decor, friendliness, menu. The great attitude of the wait staff is a particular highlight. The weak spot, unfortunately, is food preparation. They get everything else right. And the dishes SOUND great when they're described (at ordering). The only "catch" is that what shows-up on the plate in front of you is not particularly well cooked, seasoned, or plated. So, yes, go for the social aspect or for the ambiance. Just don't expect first-rate execution.

This has been a reliable, standard place for years for me and friends, usually a consistent experience, good food, close to downtown. The most recent visit, though, just fell short of the past. Just not up to par from what Ive come to know from Germantowm Cafe.

My favorite restaurant in Germantown. They have amazing food for reasonable prices, their brunch is amazing and their mimosas are always poured right, and the atmosphere is really nice but not ‘pretentious levels’ of fancy. I’ll never not go back. PS Plum pork is unbelievably good.
