Located in the heart of historic Germantown, Germantown Cafe offers comfortable American cuisine at reasonable prices as well as a fully-stocked bar and an amazing view of the Nashville skyline. Conveniently located just blocks north of downtown and the Coliseum, the Cafe is a perfect choice for a pre-game cocktail or a post-theatre bite to eat.
Germantown Cafe's kitchen specializes in straightforward traditional cooking with a subtle twist--but don't worry, there's no fusion confusion on display here. Whether you choose the delicious pork tenderloin with plum sauce, the coconut curry salmon, or the crabbiest crab cakes this side of Chesapeake Bay, you'll revel in the culinary confidence of their chef.
Quite wonderful – This place is a real find. The food is quite delicious and straightforward and an almost impossibly good value - I don't think I saw a single entrée over 19 bucks. The room is beautiful, with a great view of downtown. I've been quite a few times and never really been disappointed with anything--lunch is particulary bustling and they always manage to get me in and out in less than an hour. The vibe is different at night, more leisurely, but it's perfect and, again, very very pretty. Thoughtful wine list...and the servers are knowledgable about wine/food pairings; they seem to know their stuff, which is rare these days. It's a winner all the way around.
Highly Recommend – Four of us ate at Germantown Cafe last night. The owner said it was their busiest night yet. We arrived 6ish and were seated quickly. We weren't seated by the windows, but the view was still good and the ambience very nice. The food was wonderul! The favorites at our table were the Squash Fritters and the Southwestern Chicken Strudel. Both were absolutely yummy! The Caesar salads were better than the house salad. The Char-crusted New York Strip was cooked just as ordered it and very tasty and tender. For dessert, Chocolate Truffle Cake w/ raspberries was incredible and the Walnut Apple Pie with Cinnamon Ice Cream was runny (like apple pie soup topped with ice cream), but tasted great! The host and hostess were very attentive and friendly. Our server was less so. The prices are very reasonable for such high quality fare. We will absolutely be going back.
i've eaten here several times and everything has always been great. their cooked vegetables are phenomenal, very fresh and done just right.
Simple Elegance – I have dined here a few times now, and have not been dissappointed. The lamb and strip are fantastic, especially for $19.00. I have to say I agree about the house salad, but I don't think you can expect much more for a free starter salad. Who else gives you that nowadays? Apple pie and chocolate bread pudding are my picks for dessert. Also, a very interesting wine list, grouped by price. I think the restaurant owners are trying to bring value back to Nashville. Thanks!
