One Nashville restaurant was visited by more Lyft passengers than any other restaurant in the country in 2016, the San Francisco-based ride-sharing service announced Wednesday.

Acme Feed & Seed, which reported selling $14.8 million worth of food and drink in 2015, bested the rest of the nation's restaurants in drop-offs by the ride-sharing company.

In October, restaurant industry magazine Restaurant Business reported that the restaurant served the ninth-most meals of any independent restaurant in the country. The Lyft announcement notes that Acme is particularly popular with tourists and millennials, which should come as little surprise due to its Lower Broadway location.

The restaurant and bar, which doubles as a popular honky-tonk, was placed by Lyft in the restaurant category. Los Angeles' The Abbey was the country's most-visited bar, the company said in a news release.

Nashville's most-visited bar, according to the release, was the Tin Roof on Demonbreun Hill near Music Row.

The announcements came as part of the ride-sharing service's second-annual "Lyftie Awards." For last year's awards, Acme was categorized as an event venue and topped that category locally. With its shift to the restaurant category, it replaced Five Points Pizza as the city's most-visited eatery and allowed Bridgestone Arena to become the city's most-visited event space.

Germantown received a "Lyftie" for being the city's "trending" destination.
