The grouper and scallops are phenomenal. The chef hit it out of the park with those two dishes. Really flavorful and memorable. Highly recommend. One of the best meals I’ve eaten in 7+ yrs living in Nashville.

Food was good but the biscuit was more like a layered pastry. This could have been okay but the also smelled like seafood. Our guess is that the biscuits may have been sitting next to seafood in the kitchen?

Service was pretty slow, the drinks were tasty, but the food was a bit bland. Being right next to a busy street with lots of tourists screaming and blasting music from party buses made it hard to hear each other on the patio.

Arrived early enough for happy hour priced oysters. Some of the best ever. Then soft shell crab and shrimp dishes lifted the experience. Bailey, our server, surprised us with outstanding dessert to celebrate our anniversary. When the meal and server are first rate, it doesn’t get any better!!!

I’m not a seafood fan, so saying the Marsh House is consistently really good is a big compliment. They have the best fried chicken! Guests and family find the seafood to be extremely high quality and always well prepared. The servers are always just top notched and well trained. Our server Bailey was really great, she had a good grasp on the wine selections and menu options, very engaging with our guests and timely with her service. We’ll keep coming back again and again.

Our anniversary dinner was beyond delicious, from the drinks to the dessert. We had 3 appetizers and one entree each, no complaints. I was floored with every bite. The sparkler in our strawberry shortcake was a nice touch, too. Thank you so much for the perfect night!

While in Nashville, Janice and I had the opportunity to host our great niece and her roommate for dinner. They are students at Vanderbilt and we don’t get to see them often, so we wanted to try something special for them. The Marsh House at the Thompson Hotel certainly fit the occasion. We took an early (5:00 pm) reservation as it worked well for everyone’s schedules. We spent a few minutes socializing before ordering and were not rushed along. The restaurant offers a happy hour oyster special for $1/each, which made for an excellent starter. We also drinks and a very tasty ceviche before our main plates. Everyone had something different from scallops to grouper to garlic shrimp to a crawfish pasta. All were enjoyed! Our server, Kaitlin, was super. She anticipated every need and made sure we were well taken care of. Finished off with a variety of desserts and more conversation. A very pleasant, leisurely meal was had by all. We will certainly keep the Marsh House on our list for our next visit to Nashville.

The service here was very good. We wanted a bottle of wine, so they brought someone out to help us decide on one within our price range. The Riesling we decided on was delicious. The food was a little overpriced, but overall pretty tasty.
