I was able to change my reservation from 2-6 ppl with ease, after a girlfriend and I decided we wanted to turn our girls brunch of 2 into a family brunch. Service was amazing, food was good. Clean and nice atmosphere. Love the Marsh House and will continue to recommend to others.

We’ve been there before and looked forward to brunch. The menu was good as was the food.
However one entree was delivered a but the other one was not delivered for well over five minutes and after multiple inquiries.
It sort of took the enjoyment down a few notches.

An absolutely wonderful evening out with my husband and this meal was perfectly on point! We ate every bite of everything we ordered. Outstanding.
Our waitress was so great. Asked our names and used them each time she addressed us. On point!
Cocktails were perfect. I’m picky about how I enjoy a cosmopolitan and they made it perfectly.
We ordered fresh oysters as an appetizer. My husband had the seared sea scallops and I had the baked grouper.
Perfection. We will be back!

I highly recommend Marsh House if you are looking for good seafood in Nashville (which is hard to find!). The food and cocktails were excellent.

Outstanding dinner! We ate seafood / shellfish and that’s just fine with me. Fresh oysters, scallops, shrimp, mussels, and crab. We had carrots that were delicious. Desserts were fun and unique. The service was attentive and quite friendly. What a wonderful evening.

Aside from some exceptionally noisy patrons at a nearby table, we had another wonderful dinner at Marsh House. We really enjoyed the “Wading in the water” seafood tower. The oysters are exceptional.
Our waitress, Brianne was on-point.

We enjoyed our dinner. The only issue would be our salads came to our table at the same time as our appetizer. Felt a little rushed.

Food and service were great! Trying to use QR code to get to a menu not entirely user friendly (worked on my iPhone but not on my companion's android phone). The location (outside on the patio) means it will never be a quiet dining experience, but the overhead music was a bit too loud.

Ambiance was fabulous. Food was great, though very rich and hearty. Unfortunately, the service lacked. I’ll return for a lighter meal and a glass of wine.

We were on vacation in Nashville and decided to try this place. The waitress was completely uninterested in waiting on us and more of just an order taker, quick, short, snobby. I ordered the flounder and couldn’t even eat it. It was soggy and In some terrible watery sauce. Definitely will never go back.

I have been to the Marsh House several times over the past couple years, many times taking visiting customers or coworkers. This time was a disappointment, the food was not great and the service was average. Not sure what has changed but it was not what we were hoping for the guests we had.

Excellent location, nice ambiance. We wish menu would have better and more choices. Ambience is pleasant but missing music background- gave us a feeling of “eat and go”. $1 oysters on Happy Hour was nice. Valet service is convenient

The only thing necessary for me to give Marsh House 5 stars instead of 4 is an option for bottomless mimosas. Or at least for bottle purchases. Food was great and Ellen's service was awesome!

Food was excellent, service was a little underwhelming. Our server didn't really make us feel very welcome. It felt like our table was neglected several times and that we just fell off the radar. It wasn't overly crowded, so I'm not sure what the issue was. It seemed our server only wanted to do his job and get out. It was the bare minimum at best and nothing personal to his demeanor in making the evening seem extremely average from a service perspective.

Again, the food was excellent.

Tre, our FAVORITE guy, was very pleasant and entertaining as always aa the bartender and server. It was our 2nd stay at The Thompson Nashville Hotel and 4th visit to Marsh House. From the portions, the flavor, the price, and AMAZING staff- it is simply perfect each time we come! We will be back VERY soon.

Food was excellent, but service was poor. Literally took an hour for oysters and 2 hours after sitting to get our entrees. Our waitress avoided eye contact because she knew it was ridiculous. Wine glasses were left to become empty as well. Perhaps our server was overburdened, but it was a poor experience. Would not recommend.
