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.

    Lovely restored historic home. Hard chairs could use cushions, very loud as all the surfaces are hard. Food was very good, modern, interesting use of spices.

    The food was the biggest disappointment, no flavor. Our waitress was very pleasant and professional but the hostess and a woman who appeared to be “the owner” was in the restaurant rushing here and there and very distracting. She made no acknowledgment that there were customers in the room. I will not be going back.

    Nice place. The staff was personable and the food was good. We had the cashew and leeks appetizer on pitas. Sounds strange but it was good. We had the burger(two juice patties with bacon jam on an interesting bun) and the squash Brussel sprout veggie (vegan) entree. Both were well prepared and tasty. We topped it off with the lemon Brule-smooth and creamy with a crispy sugar top. Would recommend it all!

    Meh. Service was great. Ambiance was ok but acoustics are terrible. Food was ok. Cashew leek dip was not good (I am a foodie and love random stuff but this had no flavor or interest). My salmon was good but the risotto and purée had no flavor either. Wine and cocktails good. Dessert was ok. I probably wouldn’t go back considering flavors and price.

    It was a disappointment. The lunch menu was lacking. The server was not knowledgeable, but friendly. Maybe dinner would be better.

    Seated at the outdoor patio we could hear the music from the bier garden, but it was quiet enough that we could still enjoy dinner conversation. There was a special menu we took advantage of, and food was well prepared, fresh, creative and delicious. Fango and Susie were excellent wait staff and had us laughing the entire time! The experience left me wanting to return for a longer stay. Would recommend this little gem to anyone.

    We made reservations the week prior to our visit from out of town. Unfamiliar with the area, reviews said this was great. We used link in the Ferguson house website to make a 6-person reservation after our visit to Nashville playhouse. On 9/10/22, the day before our reservation, we confirmed via Open Table we were still coming (all 6 of us). On Sept. 11, after watching playhouse performance, we found our way to the restaurant only to find it CLOSED and shuttered. I tried calling their number but there was no answer and there was a sign on the door clearly stating they were closed. Needless to say, we had to find another place to eat before our two hour drive back home. Either the restaurant hasn't communicated with Open Table, or Open Table hasn't updated their site about their hours. We were scrambling to find other options before our two-hour drive north. Quite disappointing.
