Just what we wanted!

We were looking for a good steak diner on a Friday night and we got what we were looking for! We both got the prime rib special that is offered Friday through Sunday. The meat was cooked to perfection. The salad bar offered a good variety and was very fresh. Do save room for desert!! The cakes... read more

In the area for weekend trip. Looking for a quick spot in area of hotel. Good rec from Hampton and we tried it. Excellent burger, frankly, one of best I've had. Bacon and blu-cheese. Cooked perfectly (as requested). Very nice salad bar. Menu looked good, not creative, but solid fare. I'd definitely go back if in the area. No alcohol... More

The food was okay, the service was okay. The price was to high. We had reservations for 12 which they somehow forgot. Then there was no alcohol.

I recently ate at the Boiler Room during my stay in Franklin NC and it was by far one of the greatest experiences I've ever had dining at a restaurant. Thanks to my amazing waiter, Garrett Schrader, the service was quick and he did a very good job checking on us and making sure we had everything we needed. Not... More

Commonly known as one of the finest restaurants, if not the finest in Franklin, NC. The food and service is always excellent. The staff and management work hard to assure customer needs are met. The only complaint I've heard is the lack of cocktail service. Parking and business location are good. Prices are moderately high for a small town but... More

On event nights, they do offer a decent buffet, however, most of the time the food lacks seasoning and the baked potatoes are never done. The salad bar is fantastic and always fresh.

I have eaten here about 4 times. The last time was not as good, but I ordered a burger then. The other times we ate there we had some excellent lunched. You could tell that someone in the kitchen knew what they were doing. Not just a cook but a real chef in the kitchen. I'm not sure if something... More

Spent a few weeks in western North Carolina and did a little antique shopping in Franklin. Checked Trip Advisor to find a good restaurant for lunch. Initially, went to Caffe Rel, but it was "closed for the season" which we thought was a bit odd. The Caffe must have good food because its exterior and location were not very inviting.... More
