We had the best server (Nikki ) and the best food. This was our second time, never disappoints. We will be back.
You have to have the duck fat tater tots and the creole honey mustard. I also like the grilled cheese sandwich with soup, had the chicken artichoke soup this time, I will go back to tomato bisque next time
If you dine on 2nd floor, its a beautiful cosy room. For someone who does not like meaty American fare, this place was a great find in Nashville. Great service and tasty food! Good for pescatarians
Visiting Nashville for the first time we went to Merchants for a special dinner. Rating a restaurant on Valentine’s Day probably isn’t fair but we have gone out to restaurants for the past 30 years with far better experience. The service was very good and the building is terrific. However the food was just ok. The Prime Rib that I was served was in two pieces that were thin cut and the truffle Mac and Cheese was very dry. The bar list was quite extensive but I did not like my manhattan that was over powered with too much bitters. It was not a bad experience and like I said, it may not be a fair review since we were there on Valentine’s Day.
Great meal, great service, right on Broadway. Highly recommended.
Atmosphere was more than energetic, it was downright obnoxious at times.....2nd floor NE corner. Granted, that is due more to group behavior at adjoining tables and not the venue itself, but this was a business dinner and the majority of the time it was difficult to hear.
My wife and I were celebrating our 28th wedding anniversary. The staff could not have been nicer, from the hostess desk to the servers to the manager. They actually celebrated with us without intruding on the privacy of the occasion. We can’t stop telling people about our experience.
Amazing dinner. Steak was cooked fantastic. It was pricy but that’s only due t the nice restaurant and locality. Excellent reservation.
We really enjoyed our brunch here! Anna, our server, is awesome! She has such a great sense of humor & was very attentive to us; making great suggestions & happy to bring us anything we asked for with a bright smile and great attitude! She is the most personable server we have had in years. The baked pimento cheese is the bomb! Thanks, Anna, and we will be back to see you on the next trip to Nashville.
Loved the Duck Fat Tater Tots!!! They were awesome!
The atmosphere was great, as was the food and service.
Can't go wrong at Merchant's!
Merchant’s was highly recommended by a tour guide but we found the menu to be limited, the food just “good”, the service adequate to good and the noise level too high. They have two levels, the upstairs dining room and the down stairs Bistro. We ate in the Bistro.
I LOVED OUR TIME AT MERCHANTS! The gal who helped us was beyond amazing. Super nice and super knowledgeable. I am coming back feb 14th with my parents this time and so excited to return! -Gavin Hill
Made a reservation, they seated us in the downstairs which was miserably loud with drunk folks from out of town. The food was subpar, especially for the price. Used to be one of the best places for dinner downtown, maybe the upstairs still is? So make sure to request upstairs if you make a reservation.
Food taste was average overall, not a great blend of flavors (fried green tomatoes) or consistency/freshness (pulled pork tasted felt reheated and not fresh)
Server was inattentive, had to have another waiter help.
They took the pulled pork off the bill, but the experience said not worth it to try again
We were looking forward to eating here for a while. The fried green tomatoes had a strange taste and were luke warm yet burnt. The club sandwich and salad were both very bland and something I’d expect at a cheap diner. Very expensive and not worth $80 check plus $20 parking. Servers were friendly.
We were not impressed with this restaurant. The food and beverages were mediocre (especially for the price), the service was just okay, and it was loud, although when we asked the server to turn the music down, he did.
Food was ok, service ok. Nothing memorable, probably won’t go back any time soon.
Great service and the food is always good at Merchants!
Been about a year since I had been to Merchants. In my opinion it has moved down market and now targets tourists with a more limited menu and moderately high prices. My crawfish gumbo was mediocre at best. The roux was watery, the onion not minced (large pieces) and too few crawfish. My wife and I used to go here fairly regularly before attending the symphony. This was a disappointment compared to previous experiences.
Loved the location, the style of the inside and the food was AMAZING!
