Merchants is owned and operated by locals Chef TK and Emily Peterson, and they invite guests to come as they are. This isn't a dress code, it's our philosophy for all we do. We are here to take care. For us, it starts with the menu – we work with our neighbors to bring the best of what's available locally to the table, showcase the specialties of our region and host guests for a great meal.

Our menu is full of familiar dishes, reimagined through our lens of seasonal + local + flexible + fun. The bar program is anchored by 30 craft beers on draft, offered up along side hand-crafted cocktails and approachable wine. Come join us!
