Great salad, soup and potato bar. Steaks are great, and even burgers are fine. Service is fantastic. It's a super place to eat, especially for a working lunch.

This restaurant did some things well and most things not well. Prices were reasonable. My son and I had the soup/salad bar and were happy. My husband ordered salmon that was good, if a bit small, but his baked potato was a color I have never ever seen. It looked like it sat outside for days. They should have been... More

Ate here during a recent visit to Franklin. The decor was nice when we entered. I was suprised that no alcoholic beverages were served (a first for any steakhouse I have ever been in) but I suppose that is because the restaurant overlooks a large indoor play complex (video games, minigolf, go carts, etc) for kids. Our waitress was friendly... More

We always eat here when we come through town and the food is always good but this time they were way to slow on getting out food out. Not very busy is not sure why it took so long.

Apart from the unadvertised absurdity of not serving wine or beer at a steakhouse, the Boiler room is a spectacular disappointment. We went because it was listed as the 6th best restaurant in Franklin, but that is sad if true. The so called NY strip was a third the usual thickness and despite being ordered medium arrived ferociously overdone. The... More

We responded to their promotion for a dinner buffet before the theater performance next door under same ownership. The food was of extremely poor quality and service was not much better. We tipped only because we felt sorry for the young waiter. The Boiler Room also does not offer any alcoholic beverages which is okay with us, but others may... More

The Boiler Room has a friendly staff, plenty of seating, but a bit noisy from all the gaming areas. The Grilled Chicken Caesars Salad was huge and delicious. I do recommend The Boiler Room....but not to anyone wanting a quiet romantic atmosphere. This isn't the place to get engaged.....lol....very distracting.....lol.

I live near Franklin and had seen ads for this restaurant, but it wasn't until a friend recommended it that I gave it a try. There is ample parking, especially if there is not an event at the auditorium next door. The decor is train-themed, and you can even be seated in a train car. The service is prompt, attentive,...
