Met several DeMatha grads for lunch. Had a great meal and great service. I have now eaten there three times and had a great meal every time. Will be back every time I am in the area!

I work close to Franklin's and eating here frequently. Every meal I've ever got from here has been fresh. The menu pulls in foods from local farms. Great atmosphere!

I love this place and the owners deserve your business however the food really is nothing to write home about. It is a good meeting place and you of course can eat here but there are much better food choices near by. I am vegan and the choices are limited, my husband is an omnivore and he feels the same...

Over the years I've gone here about once every year or so. (It's close to home and sometimes friends want to meet there.) I kept telling myself that the restaurant was just having a bad night on the times I was there and that my friends' praise was worth my giving it another shot. And another. And another. I have...

Nice place to get dinner with friends. They have an interesting store to browse while you're waiting to be seated. It attracts less of the college crowd and more of the local crowd compared to other restaurants which is refreshing.

this is an amazing place - a brewery restaurant with a curiosity store at the entrance. Everything about this place is perfect: The parking, location, food, service and price. Make yourself a favor and visit! And to be clear: this is a family restaurant that could also serve as a place for dinner and drinks with friends. It's not a... More

Didn't get a chance to sample the beer, but the food was very good and staff was great. I had a burger and fries - great burger, nothing special about the fries. But the onion rings were incredible. They were HUGE (the waitress said that they looked more like hoola-hoops than onion rings). Batter-dipped rings sprinkled with Old Bay seasoning... More
