Merchants Restaurant Reviews
Merchant's is divided into 3 floors; each with its own unique character. First floor has bar and grille. Good food. Recommend the Salmon BLT sandwich and fries (or yummy fruit). Second floor is the fine dining area. Great, great atmosphere with wonderful food. Recommend the Ahi Tuna and Filet Mignon. Third Floor is for large parties up to 200. Certain areas are divided for more privacy or rent the entire floor to yourself.Wait staff varies depending on who you get. Some care about making it an experience for the customer. Others are bitter and angry because they are lifetime servers.

Loved the fine dining experience. Had the beef dish, amazing all around. My husband had the porkchop, meat was great, but beans were undercooked.

Can't go wrong with the bar or the food. Amazing selection of craft beers and 10-25 year aged whiskey and bourbons. The soups are great. I recommend the Tomato Basil.

Nice bourbon selection, but they were out of the Pappy when I stopped in... Fun and casual in the downstairs dining room, great bartenders and cocktails
If you're vegan they offer a portabello mushroom burger!
Green fried tomatoes are a necessity here. Try their local gin cocktails too.

There are two bartenders named Josh. Ask either one for a Vieux Carre. Amazing drink! Those guys are the best bartenders in Nashville.

by Jake R.
Locally brewed beer, local grass-fed beef, freshly squeezed juice cocktails, & a great server, Matt. We happened to wander into a winner!
by Dawn M.
Our service was terrible, the waiter was a complete jackass, the pork was cold and had to be sent back and still wasn't satisfactory, the grits tasted like eating a lemon, very very disappointed :-/
by Kaleb H.
Also the staff is very very very friendly....great customer service!
by Henry Q.
Great place to take the wife! Open late! ;-)
by Henry Q.
Good food, horrible service/experience. Wouldn't recommend at all.
by Joseph W.
The food downstairs is amazing! Fish tacos, duck fat tator tots and fried chicken are a must have!
Food not that great. Fish tacos should be corn tortillas not flour. Chicken salad was grocery store quality. Good vibe, not good food
by Esteban S.

Braised short rib app with grits. It's amazing!
by Robbyn M.
This place has a unique vibe, I was disappointed to find out they didn't have the Delmonico the night I was in, but I went with the filet and I'd have to say it was good. Not the best, but noteworthy.
by Michael E.
