Housed in the former Merchants Hotel, built in 1892, the restaurant retains many of the hotel's original fireplaces, wainscoting, and custom sconces. On the first floor, there's a casual bar–grill atmosphere and menu on the first floor, while the second floor features formal dining in a room with hardwood floors, brick walls, and ceiling fans. The upstairs menu includes traditional meats: roasted chicken and pork loin, blackened tilefish, steak and short ribs.

Had a great casual dinner - the salmon on the green salad was very good.

I was on a quest for a good place to eat while in Nashville for the night on business. I walked past the place, and thought the menu sounded appealing and photo presentations looked good. I ate in the bar. The server seemed knowledgeable, but the food was not good. I had the lobster and shrimp fondue as an appetizer. The shrimp was overcooked and the sauce had an overwhelming spice that I could not put my finger on. The garlic toast was pretty
greasy. I then ordered the Seared Scallops with Butternut Squash Hash. I couldn't taste the scallops or the buttnernut squash. I barely ate any of it. I will say that both dishes arrived very hot and presentation was pretty good. I had one glass of wine and my bill was over $55. Not impressed...
