A diner, not a steakhouse

We chose this place because it was the only non-chain eatery off the exit. Basic small diner. Small enough that the smoking/non-smoking section distinction was meaningless. Burgers seemed to be from over cooked pre-formed patties. We certainly won't be making a special effort to stop at this exit... read more

My husband's steak was the worst thing I have ever seen. I imagine it was a frozen T-bone and flash grilled 20 seconds on each side. I could go on about the filth..just do not go. On the bright side we got our horrible food super fast, and our server was nice.

The saying you get what you pay for is right on point. Tbone and prime rib for 10.50 sounds like a great price, but the food leaves you feeling a lot of indigestion. The place is more like an old diner with very sticky menus. I personally will never eat there again.

My daughter, son-in-law and myself chose Franklin Steak House to eat lunch today. We ordered the Ribeye Silver steak, salad and baked potato. When we got our food, the steak was cold and wasn't cooked the way we ordered it.We all ordered it medium rare, we got it cold and well done. The potato's were cold and smelled of warmed... More

This is a very small restaurant that specialize in steaks. I had a very nice piece of prime rib. The cost is very reasonable. It also in walking distance from several hotels. When I was there the restaurant was doing a brisk business so setting can be limited.

A family has converted a former Waffle House into a steak diner. The setting is not elaborate, and yes you can hear them tenderizing the steaks from where you sit in the dining area. But the service is good, and it is best filet you can get, ANYWHERE for under $20. I always eat there when in Franklin.

The house salads are EXCELLENT, the steaks are usually pretty good, service is acceptable, and the price is reasonable. It's a good place to go for a casual sit-down meal.

We like to try local eateries - so gave this a try. It is not fancy but was clean on our visit. The service was OK. Looked like mostly locals the day we ate lunch. Reminded me of older truck stop - think the bldg. was perhaps once a Waffle House. Our family tried steak and BLT. all was good.

This place was not very clean, and the food was at best edible. The service was not great. I would not recommend this location.

This small place may surprise you. We have been here several times before and we love their prime rib and ribeye steak dinners. They have a very reasonable price and the service has always been good. We have never been disappointed when we have ate here.
