Brown & Loe
In the 1940’s, Brown and Loe was originally a produce broker with offices on the second floor of the Merchant’s Bank building. The new Brown and Loe Restaurant celebrates the techniques of curing, pickling and smoking meats, beautifully interpreted into marvelous American comfort cuisine. This is a true local venue, evidenced by the restaurant’s allegiance to the resident farmers and food artisans who supply most of the restaurant’s fresh ingredients.
Brown and Loe Restaurant is the second dining concept introduced by Harry Murphy, owner of the City Market’s popular Harry’s Country Club.
I have recommended this to several friends, but would prefer to keep this hidden gem a secret. I love the outdoor patio during good weather. The inside is bright and feels historic.
Cool vibe, great atmosphere, solid food, great service. This is a nice place to chill in a casual atmosphere. The open concept makes for a lot of noise, so don't go expecting a nice romantic meal. Also looked like it would be a tough place to go with kids--the menu and seating really don't support that.
Great place! Awesome location
We sat outside and it was delightful. The food was very good as was the service.
The food here never disappoints! I had a spinach salad with grilled salmon and the salmon was cooked perfectly.
I chose this restaurant because of previous experience. It is the perfect place to have a business lunch or a nice dinner with your spouse or significant other. Great ambiance, great people, and always great food.
Fun atmosphere, good food, and excellent service. Will visit again.
Such a fun night on the patio! Martin, our server, was a delight!!
Excellent as always! Great service, food, drinks and place! Highly recommended!
The food was too salty. Too much salt ruins the taste.
LOUD. Tablecloths or something to absorb some of the noise would be welcome. High ceilings and a huge room make conversation difficult, you have to scream to be heard. The upside: cocktails are great, food is great -- deliciously prepared and a few surprising offerings in a city where a lot of menus are on repeat. Good service, overall a bit less upscale than I initially thought (observation, not criticism). Wonderful area to stroll before or after dinner.
An absolute terrific experience! From the service to the food! You won’t be disappointed.
We had a wonderful evening and meal.
We love Brown & Loe. My wife can’t wait to go back for their smoked chicken salad sandwich and house made buttermilk chips. Delicious!
We sat in the vault - everything was delicious, perfect! My mom had a great birthday!
Service was excellent as was the food! There are so many wonderful places to eat in the City Market, but don’t forget about this one! It was a great experience.
Loved the ambiance of this place. Great location in the City Market and the food and environment was very cool.
We sat outside on a Sunday afternoon. Service was attentive, but not intrusive. Food was great, interesting and to overpriced.
I categorize this restaurant as "ok." I would never say to friends, "OMG! We have to go to Brown & Loe." Over-priced for portions and quality of food. Service was just "ok" as well. And the restaurant was WAY TOO LOUD.
Such a great area, great food and great service! The options to sit either inside or outside is nice and there was plenty of parking in the River market!
Enjoyed the meal. Quick service and great food.
The out on the patio. Sophie was very attentive. Had special chicken fried chicken. Great mashed potatoes came with large wedge salad. Also had salmon on coconut rice with mango salsa. One of the best salmon dishes I had. Very friend,y bar staff. Definitely recommend
Perfect spot for Sunday brunch. Great atmosphere, coming back to try outside seating
Friends in from out of town. They were staying at The Phillips. Invited them to meet at Brown and Loe!
Everything was very very good. Took some friends and we all will be back!!!
I loved the atmosphere it was adorable and cute. The restaurant was a little loud but the host allowed us to sit in a booth away from the parties which I liked. The patio looked fabulous. The food was phenomenal. The drinks took a long time to arrive but were great. Overall some things seemed over priced bit
The hostess’ pleasant greeting when we arrived set the tone for our brunch. The waiter was attentive and quite prompt despite a busy area. We started with the donut holes and stout ganache dipping sauce, graduated to the spinach salad (for which our waiter suggested bringing the large one rather than two small ones, for a $2 saving,) and the Summer Squash soup. All were beyond just good. The entrees — Benedicts and potato cakes — equally so. A visit to the restrooms was encouraging: they were spotless — always a good sign the whole place is kept clean. All in all, a good place to dine on all counts.
Drinks were slow getting outside to us but overall great
We had the intimate setting in the vault. Food was great, especially the brussel sprouts! Server was very knowledgeable of the specials and the menu. We will be going back!
We tried a little bit of everything and every.single.bit was delicious. Fantastic waiter who made the experience even better. Have already told 4 friends to check it out.
Great food & great service.
The service was attentive, the food was delicious, and the drinks were inventive.
Great place in the Rivermarket to have a wonderful dinner!!
our reservation may have gotten dropped because we showed up a bit late, but Brown & Loe didn't blink. they got a table ready for us and we were seated within minutes of arriving. our server was amazing. friendly and helpful. we had bluecorn hushpuppies and swordfish ceviche as appetizers. both were big hits. we had chicken and dumplings, cornmeal trout, nashville hot chicken, crispy pork shank as mains, with smoked gouda mac for the table. ALL were delicious! great experience. lively environment. most of all, excellent service from the time we go there until we left. THANK YOU!
Really liked the vibe other than it was loud and really too warm. The food and service were great!
The Meatloaf is excellent! We always enjoy the meal and excellent service. When we are in town visiting this is one of our favorite stops.
My favorite restaurant. They have something for everyone, even kids (fancy mac & cheese, chocolate phosphates). Fish dishes are always excellent. Fun drink menu.
I had an excellent experience with Brown & Loe! The waitress was incredibly kind and helpful! What a wonderful spot for some drinks and good food in the River Market!
Great location and amazing food!
Always a great experience and great service and food.
