Great place

So, this is my local watering hole. Love this place! Service is usually good, but some of the wait staff can be not so friendly. Food is always good and the beer is cold. The patio is a great place to spend a spring/summer eventing and they have a private bar room you can rent for any event at a... read more

Just stopped in here with my family for pizza and wings. Driving thru IN and needed a detour from an accident on 65. No wait, waitress was nice enough. Neat history to the building. We ordered a large half cheese/half deluxe and teriyaki/sweet chili boneless wings. Everyone who came in after us received their food before us, but they were... More

Wonderful food and great service. Even though they were extremely busy, we were well taken care of. The history of the establishment printed on the menu was an interesting read.

The fried fish with fritters was very good, not greasy. Pizza was excellent. Half priced wine on Tuesday! Can't go wrong eating there.

The restaurant/bar is in a historic building in downtown Franklin, IN. The staff is very friendly and they have great pizza. The other menu items are very good as well. A one of a kind destination well worth a visit.

We opted to take out of town guests to the Willard on a Saturday evening just prior to a movie at the wonderful Artcraft Theater directly next door. This was our third trip to the Willard; on the first we enjoyed the pub food and decent prices. On the second we awkwardly waited in the hall until a hurried waitress... More

Burrito platter was great, personal pizza had tomatoes that seemed mushy and old but all in all the food was good and priced right. Was a busy Friday night and the noise in there was extreme due to the building structure type and lack of soft goods mostly a design fault in order to keep the old time atmosphere but... More
