We were in town for homecoming and was looking for somewhere to eat. Nice place in the Germantown area, close to our alma mater, TSU. Everything everyone selected was great! Look forward to returning next year!

Eight of us looking for lunch and this cafe right down from the place we were staying. Didn't have reservations, but they managed to seat us within about 10 minutes. I and several others had the open-face chicken salad and it was scrumptious! Everything else looked pretty good too! Burgers were given very good reviews from our group too! Several... More

Very nice restaurant with a good view on Nashville skyline. Good local beers will be proposed in bottles. I particularly appreciated the fried green tomatoes as a starter. I continued with bison meat with a surprising lemon yoghurt sauce. You should try the lemon pie for dessert ! Good place in a calm atmosphere.

Looking for something good to eat reasonable priced I stumbled upon this place. Wide menu selection but since it was lunch I had the Burger Special. Vey Good. I plan to go back again and try some of their other menu items

We've been here twice for Sunday brunch and the place is always packed. This time we called ahead to get on the list right after church was over and that saved us some wait time. The brunch menu is full of very interesting choices and we had a hard time choosing but each item we've had has been great. I... More

Okay, I will admit it, I have a duck fetish. It started at Tours d'Argent in Paris with a 1,200 Euro tab for a mediocre duck dinner. Impoverished, I learned variations of St. Alton Brown's "Mighty Duck" that remains my favorite recipe - and one rarely bettered by a restaurant. The Germantown Cafe's duck breast is simply wonderful. It is... More

After three days in the US, my body was screaming for healthy food. So I go on Trip Advisor and hey presto, I found the Germantown Cafe! The restaurant has a nice view over downtown's skyscrapers and is located in a lovely neighbourhood. Waiters are super nice and food offers a range of healthy options. The main course's size might...

We took our daughter & husband to celebrate her birthday. She felt appropriately honored by the delicious food and lovely ambiance. My husband is a wood-worker and noticed the wonderful wood in the back, which stretches the length of the wall. The grain has been matched into a long piece and It is quite beautiful.

I am never disappointed with Germantown Cafe. We booked this dinner for a quiet night out and were quite happy. We had a great table with a beautiful view of the city. I enjoy branching out on the food but often end up with the plum pork - it's so delicious! The rolls are worth the calories too! Our server... More

Love the food, service and ambience here. Everyone at our table loved what they got, and my pastrami reuben sandwich was really good. And, the apple pie a la mode (heat the pie!) was some of the best that I have had in years. Literally; mercy, that was good. Good service, nice atmosphere. I will be back.
