Dinner was good. Steak was DELICIOUS! Scallops were ok. Table downstairs closest to the hostess table was a terrible seating situation. Our actual 2 seat table was too small. Pushed up against the bar area and uncomfortable. Nowhere to lay the gigantic menus while enjoying...More

Wonderful use of an old building 1st and 2nd floor to create a special place for dining. Shrimp and Grits excellent. Pot stickers tasty. Caesar Salad small, and risotto creamy rather than cheesy. Staff wonderful. Loved the option to buy a round for the kitchen.

My husband and I love this place, food is exceptional, service is excellent. The scallops are my favourite and my husband loves the Cowboy Ribeye. Being in the heart of downtown Franklin is awesome as you can wonder around after dinner.
