We loved the historical feel and setting, had great service and the food and specialty cocktails were excellent.
Merchants has a cute atmosphere on the second floor, if you are in the main dining room. The onion rings were very good. Service wasn’t bad but was not as good as expected for the price point. The special was not good. The manager offered to cómp our meal but did not follow through. We would not go back.
We ate on the first floor which we really liked. Our waiter was very attentive and helpful. My bbq sandwich was great. The sauce, sweet pickles and fried onions were a great addition. Would go again!
My sisters 40th birthday!!
We felt a bit rushed by the staff to eat and leave - but service and food was good. Seems to be becoming a tourist stop instead of the classic that we’ve always enjoyed.
The service was superb and the food was as well. Thought the prices were a little out of line but, overall, a great experience. We will return.
The food was very disappointing. Had the Mac and Cheese with chicken and the chicken was dry and there was very little flavor.
The service was impeccable and seated and served us so we could make it to a preds game on time.
Great food, drinks, service and super close to everything! Loved their wings and mac and cheese.
I absolutely love this place. The service is amazing very friendly and helpful. The menu has the perfect amount of options and all of it I highly recommend. So much that I could go into but everything is worth going from the service, food and drinks!
Everything we ordered was absolutely delicious. We ate in the 2nd floor steakhouse. Wonderful ambiance. If you like gin drinks, get the Eastside! Steak tartare, shrimp & crab Louis, butternut squash soup, and pork chop were all winners. Will definitely be going back.
Unbelievably amazing! The service and the food was the best you can find. My top restaurant to go to. Definitely reciting anyone.
Excellent!!! You can be on Broadway yet still have a classy dinner & cocktails (then join in the fun on Broadway!!)
I recommend the steak and mashed potatoes. The Mac & cheese with pulled pork was delish too!!!
Life long Nashville resident - but first time here. We had a Saturday lunch on the first floor... the "Bistro". It appears to have a better menu selection than the 2nd floor dining room. Everyone in our party of 4 enjoyed their meal. Be sure to try the Mac & Cheese with pulled pork - it was outstanding. Servers were attentive. We will certainly return for a 2nd visit. Great job... my out-of -town guests were impressed.
What a great restaurant! Perfectly located in the heart of downtown, this is simply a great place. From casual to elegant food. Just excellent. Lots of staff... very attentive.
We were going to a concert. Food, atmosphere was great. We were rushed by not one but three service persons. We were there less than an hour when they began clearing even though we weren’t finished. It wasn’t as though there were no empty tables. We weren’t planning to camp out, but for the price of the food we felt that the bums rush after 45 minutes was a bit much.
Merchants is our go to every time we get to Nashville. Great food. Great service. Reasonably priced. Fun atmosphere. Definitely one of the BEST places to eat in Nashville.
Always love Merchants - great food in fun but functional environment. Often take visitors there for view of Broadway but far better fare than what's in most of the Broadway restaurants.
We had a great dining experience. The waitress Tara was awesome with high energy and just the right amount of attentiveness. She made wonderful recommendations not only about the menu but about the town attractions in general since we were from out of town. The manager came to the table with not only great conversation, but was so gracious in thanking us for coming in. We were celebrating a birthday and the staff all signed a card that was delivered to our table along with a candlelit dessert.
Great food, great drinks, friendly and attentive service. Highly recommend, and definitely upgrade your side dish to the mac and cheese!
We have loved Merchants for years...every time we visit, we are never disappointed and to top it off, it is one of the best places to people watch. Catch a meal before a game or show, it is always wonderful.
Had a dinner for my wife's birthday. The wait staff was excellent, as was the food.
Very nice experience. I highly recommend it and will plan on returning!!
The food was amazing and the staff was very knowledgeable and always there when you needed something.
The waiters were AMAZING. My kids were hAngry and tired. They spilled the cranberry juice. And they were pleasant and graceful with us! Thank you!!!
Fun environment and great service
Be prepared to pay to park, as they no longer offer valet!
Good food. Sat by window. Enjoyed view out windows.
My husband and I enjoyed a quiet dinner in the upstairs dining area. Our waitress Savannah was delightful, attentive and provided excellent service. We ordered the lobster rolls and shared the ribeye steak. Our meal was great!
New Years Day, returned for a late night quick bite and dined in the downstairs casual dining area. We enjoyed the cheeseburger, fried green tomatoes, and jambalaya. The best part of the evening was getting our boot shined after a wonderful weekend of country dancing. Great place to dine off Broadway Street.
We had dinner here on New Year’s Eve. We were seated promptly upon arrival. We had requested to be seated in the 2nd Floor Steak House and our request was accommodated. We had a wonderful window seat overlooking Broadway and downtown Nashville. The service was excellent! We both had the 8 oz. filet and they were magnificent!! It was a great dining experience and the staff did an outstanding job of providing us with exceptional customer service!!
Go see Brandon in the bar. We really liked his service.
Was really awesome food. A little noisey.but great otherwise
Our waitress was so nice and friendly, and the food was great.
Everything was good. Note that my husband and I eat out A LOT and are very particular. Specific food comments: steak tartare portion was a little small, and I prefer it served on toast points that are not so hard, plus it was a bit too acidic. The Caesar salad was lacking a bit of pungency. The steaks were excellent - we had the strip steaks and they were cooked beautifully (rare+).
Enjoyed the upstairs dining room in spite of the crazy Nashville New Years Eve, great food, elegant surroundings, wonderful staff!
We enjoyed our night out for New Years Eve! The food is always amazing as is the service. I recommend reservations
Excellent service. Reservation request for second floor was honored with enthusiasm. We were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary so the house bought us a glass of champagne. Warm setting. Great fun.
Perfect for out of town visitors on game day
Fantastic food! Super fresh & great service.
The food was delicious but a bit heavy for my taste. I think it is truly quintessential southern comfort food so if that’s what you’re looking for it’s a great place. Quite noisy. Be sure to get reservations. Open table works well
