We went to the Boiler House to join a large group of family and friends. We were making our own menu choices and "going Dutch treat". After considering the menu, and prices, we found it difficult to find something GF to suit our dietary need. Therefore, we decided on a simple salad each. This was acceptable, and on looking around... More

Prices have gone up. No more complimentary trip to the salad bar with meal. Was not served the meal I ordered. I ordered Cajun Chicken Past and it was supposed to be served with garlic rolls and was NOT!

I had the misfortune of eating at the Boiler Room prior to a concert at the Smokey Mountain Performing Arts Center. With very few a la carte selections, I ordered the show night buffet. This includes a decent salad bar, fried fish, fried chicken, fried shrimp and a couple of additional entrees that looked very unappetizing. What I did not... More

The hostess with the two toned hair was not friendly nor did she smile! She let 2 parties that came in after us be seated 1st, I know they did not have reservations because we sat right in front of her and she didn't even take parties names. The lady that sat us and our male waiter were very nice!!... More

We ate at this restaurant prior to attending a concert at the Smoky Mountain Performing Arts Center. The salad bar was fantastic and the Concert Night Buffet was amazing. Our waiter was attentive and the atmosphere was great. We were seated in the dining car, a perfect setting for a couples dinner.

We live here in Franklin, and have eaten at The Boiler Room a few times and have always been pleased. Especially with the prime rib. Both of us having worked all day decided to order our dinner to go. Spoke with the young lady over the phone and was told that the prime rib came in 3 different sizes, the... More

Located in Franklin, NC this restaurant is located adjacent to a game mall and is styled like a train. The railroad motif is delightful and we were able to watch through large windows the kids enjoying the various indoor games in the enclosed mall. The menu offered lots of choices but we were both ready for a wonderful steak and... More

I found this to be an average meal. The salad bar was small and not terribly tasty, some of the veggies looked a little dried out. The waitress was very nice and very quick so that aspect of our visit was pleasant. The restaurant is inside of a family arcade so it makes for a fishbowl experience while you are... More

We truly strive to make sure our salad bar is always fresh and tasty. That being said, we are taking a hard look to see if we can make it even... More
