Great food and nice staff

You have to try the pretzels and vegan tacos. My mouth is watering as I write this. A great stop for food and they have live music too.

Nothing to dislike! Food was very good and the beer very very good. Love going to place where you do not expect the food to be outstanding and the service excellent.

We stayed at a local B&B (The Ginger Cat) and the owner recommended The Crooked Rooster for their Vegan Tacos. I had the tacos and a Hefeweizen beer and I loved both! My girlfriend had the SW Wrap and she also liked it. The restaurant's atmosphere and service were great, so we came the next day again ;) This place... More

Service was a problem. Not very friendly. The burger I ordered medium arrived well done and not unlike a burger king patty. The beer was good and made up for the poor service and food. My girlfriend's salad lacked fresh vegetables and was left half eaten. Disappointed and would look elsewhere next time we are in this town.

We had a very nice evening here with another couple. Our waitress Jen was very good. Friendly and playful - she made it fun. I would give the place a 4.5 if the ratings allowed. Only reason not a 5? One of our meals was fair at best. The rest of them were very good. Thanks for the evening.

Wildflower is right on Main (Franklin)Street! The interior is decorated as time gone by! I love the booths and bar and the great tin ceiling! The food varies but is always innovative and good. There is a direct connection to the brewery next door.

Dear Carol, Thank you so much for your review! Our ceiling is original as are the brick walls. The interior design was done by Doug- the owner of The Wildflower 25 years ago! Thank you for stopping in. We take great pride in our establishment and being part of the community for 25 years. We will see you next time!... More
