The Ferguson House was originally built in 1873 as a boarding house. Allie Ferguson hosted many artists and visitors over the years. Since then The Ferguson House has been many things - an antique shop, a retail shop, apartments, and now a bistro and bar. We are taking this former boarding house to the next level by offering creative cuisine in a beautiful setting with fantastic service and creativity. We hope you enjoy your visit and visit us often.

    Our chicken was very dry but the rest of the meal was fine. I would give it another chance.

    The main drawback to this restaurant is the very uncomfortable chairs in the dining area. They are more like metal out outdoor chairs without cushions. The ribs were dry, but others in my party had the burgers which were fine.

    Very disappointed. Just was not on their game. Chicken very tough hard to cut, potato was not done. So loud we could not talk to each other. Staff was nice and tried to help. Not sure if we will try it again.

    Ferguson House offers some more contemporary dishes, which is rare in Nashville, where meat, gravy and fried foods rule. We had the crab stuffed mushroom, which was excellent. The cheese was toasted perfectly and the stuffing was creamy while retaining the crab flavor. We had the spicy sauce on the side and didn't miss it. I had the lentil soup and scallop scampi. The lentil soup was pleasant. It had small whole tomatoes and a nice broth. The scallop scampi was good but the red pepper flakes overwhelmed the garlic and lemon flavors. It proved to be too hot for my tastes. The portion size was decent. 4 scallops and a nice serving of pasta, with some asparagus. My husband had the turkey sandwich. It was flavorful and moist. I had a glass of chardonnay, which was good and reasonably priced. They have a lovely outdoor patio for the warmer months.

    We had a wonderful Valentine's Day meal here. The ribeye and the brie and apple chicken were delicious, the creme brulee was velvety, and even the salad was made with great quality produce and homemade croutons. We will be back.
